Recycled Hawtness: Alfaholics GTA-R 290 restomod takes everything good about the classic Alfa Romeo and makes it even better!
The makers of the Nissan Patrol Volcan 4×4 are calling this restored SUV “investment grade fun”, but is this low-impact classic worth the effort?
We live in an era where 600+ horsepower supercars are surprisingly common and affordable. The Shelby GT500, Dodge Challenger Hellcat, and Tesla P85D all offer immense power and speed for between $55,000 and $110,000. But you don’t need a cutting edge car and hundreds of horsepower to have fun, as Jay Leno demonstrated driving around […]
If there was one single car that defined environmentalism in the first decade of the 21st century, it was the Toyota Prius. It has become synonymous with the word hybrid, and though plenty of people take issue with its sometimes-smug drivers, it also has an avid fanbase that has done some pretty cool stuff to […]
There is a small sect of car enthusiasts known as hypermilers who go to extreme measures to get the most MPGs out of their cars as they can. Usually use a light and efficient car to begin with, but not John Watkinson of the U.K. He modified his 1984 Jaguar XJS to achieve the equivalent […]
This globe-trotting couple took a rusted and ratty 1967 VW Bus and turned it into a solar-powered adventure mobile, then drove it from Alaska to Costa Rica!
With epic outlaw racers in cars spanning more than 3 decades, this wild Chilean hillclimb is like nothing you’ve ever seen. Check out all the action here!
What would you do if you had an old Suzuki Samurai and a discarded dune buggy body laying around? You would smoosh them together in the Myers Manx tradition.
This planned tiny shipping container home contains a ton of recycled and repurposed GM car parts that make for a greener living experience.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll probably say it again- the greenest car you can buy is one that’s already been built. Call it a rose-tinted exercise in V8 apologetics if you want, but the fact remains that it takes a lot less energy and a lot less carbon to put an older car back […]
Laverda isn’t well-known outside 2-wheel enthusiast circles- but if the Laverda 750 had looked like this restored Wrenchmonkees cafe racer when new, it would have been a legend.
Not everyone sees a cut-down, steampunk masterpiece when they look at the rusted remains of an old Honda P25. Not everyone, however, is Chicara Nagata.
More than a million new bicycles are sold each year in the Netherlands, which is good. What’s not so good is that nearly that many are thrown away, too. Why, though? In many cases, the frame is sound, the handlebars are straight- even the wheels are good. What’s needed, then, isn’t necessarily a new bike, […]
The most significant trend in today’s motorcycle industry is the shifting of focus away from the aging baby-boomer crowd of wanna-be Hell’s Angel accountants and orthodontists who fueled the last Harley boom towards the young, trendy urbanites who will, hopefully, catch the 2-wheeled fire and fan its flames for the next 30-40 years of their […]
Kawasaki’s smallest Ninja has been “first bike” standard-bearer for over a decade, if not longer. Still, while the high-revving 250 cc twin and willing chassis can provide some great thrills while you’re on the steepest part of the learning curve, there’s something about the bike’s aggressively plastic bodywork that can leave some people- myself, included!- […]
By most estimates, building a new, mid-sized car (think Ford Fusion or Toyota Camry) releases about 20 tons of CO2 emissions into the air- or, about as much CO2 emissions as a typical car driving 50,000 miles, according to the EPA. That’s why making an existing car last longer is, in many cases, the “greenest” […]
