Aeromobil Roadable

I was once asked to be on a panel of automotive journalist to discuss the idea of flying cars becoming a reality. My answer was “Yes”, they will be a reality, but it will be a nightmare if people actually start to use them. Just think about rush hour in your favorite city with 20,000 people trying to “fly” home. It would be a chaotic nightmare. That however hasn’t stopped inventors from trying to build them. Case-in-point, the Aeromobil Roadable Aircraft 2.5. A flying car that may just be a glimpse into the future.

Volkswagen Beetle Mini-Camper

Posted in Best of, General, Pop Culture, Videos, Volkswagen by MrAngry | October 24th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

VW Trailer

The 1974 Volkswagen Beetle made something like 50 hp and 75 lb-ft of torque. It had a top speed of around 80 mph and honestly, didn’t have the power to drive itself up a steep hill. That however didn’t stop one company from making a very interesting camper trailer for the little Bug. It fitted to a roof mounted hitch and while attached, gave the tow vehicle a 360 degree turning radius. The overall design was actually pretty trick, but the lack of power from the VW Beetle unfortunately meant that this neat little toter-trailer was doomed from the start.

Back Flip

Never in a million years would I have thought that a soft-drink company had the ability to take over the world of extreme sports. From setting the world free fall record, to air races, to the all encompassing Red Bull Flutag, this company truly takes pride in finding the best athletes to represent them. Cam Zink, a downhill mountain biker, recently made history when he accomplished the biggest freeride mountain bike step-down backflip in history. His antics are not for the faint of heart, however if risking life and limb on two wheels is your thing, then make sure to click through and check it out!

Dodge Durango | Ron Burgundy | “Ride”

Posted in Celebrity Cars, Dodge, Domestic Rides, Funny, Funny Videos, General, Pop Culture, Rides, Top of the Heap, Videos by MrAngry | October 8th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Ron Burgundy

I wonder if I should point out to Dodge that even though they now have Ron Burgundy as their pitchman for the new 2014 Dodge Durango, that he is in fact a Pontiac guy. Seriously, he drove a 1970 Pontiac Catalina in his last movie, which, as we all know is a bitching ride if there ever was one. I’ve got to hand it to these guys though as the new Durango is actually a really nice ride. It’s got seating for 7, 360 hp and some of the best sheet metal we’ve seen on an SUV in quite some time. So, with that being said, check out the Ron Burgundy spots after the jump and prepare to revel in everything from the big HEMI V8, to the massive amounts of storage in the glove box.

Super Van Movie

The mid-to-late 1970’s here in the United States was a pretty interesting time period. The Vietnam War was over, disco was in full-swing and people simply wanted to express themselves anyway they could. The custom van culture was a prime example of this and although considered to be EXTREMELY creepy by today’s standards, you’ve got to give these guys some credit as they came up with some pretty interesting rides.

Honda Drive-In

The drive-in movie theater is just as much a piece of Americana as is hot apple pie or baseball. From the 1950’s throughout the 1980’s drive-in’s were scattered throughout the country. However over the last 25 years, with the advent of digital projectors, there popularity has sadly fallen. Honda has recently launched a campaign to save some of these wonderful theaters and help keep the tradition going strong. It’s called Honda Project Drive-In and thus far they’ve helped out quite a few family owned theaters. You can get more information by clicking on the following link: http://igg.me/at/savethedrivein, but make sure to also check out the video after the jump.

Patrol Vehicle Operation: 1960’s Style

Posted in Best of, Educational, General, News, Police, Pop Culture, Videos by MrAngry | September 28th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Old Patrol

Body roll, bias-ply tires and brakes so bad that maybe you’d get one or two good stops out of them before the pedal went to the floor. These were the Police cars of the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. Cars like the Dodge Monaco and Plymouth Satellite graced patrol fleets across the United States. They were big, lumbering beasts, but then again so was everything else on the road. The following film demonstrates not only how bad these cars actually were, but more so, how good patrol officers had to be to drive them!

The Bianchina is an Unconventional Choice: Petrolicious

1959 Bianchina

If you’re ever in the city of Rimini, Italy, then you may just be fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of Annalisa and her little blue 1959 Bianchina. It was chosen from her fathers collection to be her daily driver, and even though it’s not fast, the personality it exudes more than makes up for its lack of speed. It is perhaps, one of the cutest cars we’ve ever seen and we need to thank the crew over at Petrolicious for bringing it to us!

A look at the 1980’s…

Posted in Best of, FAIL / Funny, Funny, General, Pop Culture, Videos by MrAngry | September 18th, 2013 | 1 Response |

The 1980s

If you were to look at what was perhaps one of the greatest transition decades in the automotive industry, the odds of the 1980’s showing up would not be out of the question. It was the decade that saw the death of the carburetor, the inclusion of on-board diagnostic systems, and new safety features like airbags and anti-lock brakes. The industry centered around futuristic hardware and design, and promised people that amazing things were on the horizon. For the most part it was true, however looking back on it now, in 2013, we can see just how lost the 1980’s and the automotive industry as a whole, really were.

Dead Adolf

Now THIS is a commercial that I think the world could rally behind. Produced as a final thesis by the students from the Film Academy in Ludwigsburg, Germany, this mock Mercedes-Benz ad shows a us fictional part of history that we all wish were true. The tagline for the ad, “Detects threats before they emerge”

Brilliant, simply brilliant.
