Traditionally, you might be forgiven for picturing semi-trailer trucks as square-shaped, fuel-guzzling road hogs with Godzilla-sized carbon footprints – expressing little or no regard for the environment. However, thanks to some truly outside-the-box thinking, the following incredible prototypes debunk that stereotype, switching outdated automotive designs for aerodynamic tractors, cutting-edge technological innovations and eco-friendly hybrid advances. Read on for ten real-life futuristic trucks that look like Transformers.

Ten Vehicles We’ve Been Waiting a Century For

Posted in Cool Stuff, Pictures, Travel by Gerri | October 1st, 2014 | Leave a Reply |

Here’s a gem we should have never forgotten. In the year 1900, Jean-Marc Côté and a collection of other French artists created a series of postcards for the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris. The subject of the postcards: France in the year 2000. The idea caught on and Russian and German prints were released in the years that followed. The result, a number of incredibly awesome new modes of transportation. The world would be so much cooler if this is how we got around.

Razor Crazy Cart

The new Razor Crazy Cart is probably one of the best toys to hit the market in the last 20 years. It’s obscenely fun for both kids and adults, and has the ability to make even the most hardened of individuals crack a smile and have fun. The guys at Razor also happen to be huge fans of Ken Block, and as such have created this tribute video to him and all of his gymkhana awesomeness! Check it out after the jump.

Lego Mustang

Go into any toy store and the odds of you finding LEGO play sets are pretty damn good. These little blocks have been around since 1932 and in that time they’ve helped expand the imaginations of both children and adults alike. Some people stick solely to the kits, however there are those who not only think outside the box, but blow the lid wide-f*ckin-open! Youtube user Sheepo’s Garage is one such person. He recently completed a LEGO Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 with an attention to detail that is simply astonishing. Check it out after the jump.

Love the Beast: MUST WATCH

Posted in Celebrity Cars, Cool Stuff, General, Movies, Top of the Heap, Videos by MrAngry | October 17th, 2013 | 2 Responses |

Love the Beast

With the recent crop of automotive films such as SENNA, RUSH, and Patrick Dempsey: Racing Le Mans, I figured I’d post something up about a film that very few motor-heads actually know about. Love the Beast was the brainchild of actor Eric Bana, and tells the story of his first car – an old Ford XB Falcon. With appearances from Jeremy Clarkson, Jay Leno and believe it or not Dr. Phill (really?) Love the Beast is one of those rare films that explains exactly why we love cars so damn much.

1981 Delorean – TIME MACHINE

Posted in Celebrity Cars, Cool Stuff, Domestic Rides, Rides, Top of the Heap, Videos by MrAngry | October 13th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

DeLorean Time Machine

We sometimes forget that not everyone who owns a special car has to be an automobile enthusiast. For example, this is Lenny Hochteil and his 1981 Delorean time machine. Lenny describes himself as a “movie car guy” as opposed to an enthusiast, and he owns this particular car because of the way it makes him feel. Now, is there anything wrong with that? Well no, nothing at all as Lenny’s passion for this Delorean is the type of car that gets people excited and makes them ask questions about the hobby. Movie cars, race cars, daily drivers… it honestly doesn’t matter as we love them all.

HAYABUSA POWERED GOLF BUGGY!

Busa Kart

Putting a Suzuki Hayabusa engine into anything that requires an engine is a good idea as far as I’m concerned. They make gobs of power, rev to the moon, and can be literally shoehorned into just about anything. Case in point – this RIDICULOUS golf cart that you’re about to see. I WANT ONE!

Batman’s Tumbler – Jay Leno’s Garage

Posted in Best of, Celebrity Cars, Cool Stuff, General, Videos by MrAngry | October 2nd, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Batman's Tumbler

When the Tumbler first broke onto the silver screen as Batman’s new ride in Christopher Nolan’s 2005 Batman Begins, it cemented itself as an instant movie classic. It was bigger, badder and burlier than any other Batmobile that came before it, and looked to be a cross between a stealth fighter and a Mack truck. The cool part however is that this is an actual running and driving car and not just some movie prop as Jay Leno recently found out.

Valiant Charger

As I was doing some research on the Australian based Chrysler Valiant Charger, I came upon the short film, Peace & Quiet : Fast Pants – Tight Cars. To be honest it’s quite terrible and it reminds me of the video Sabotage from the Beastie Boys. There is however some kick-ass footage of old Valiant Chargers and classic motorcycles so it’s definitely worth the watch if you’ve got nothing better to do and lots of time to kill. Check it out after the jump.
