Feeling uninspired this Monday? Like you need a jolt of motivation to get the week going? Don’t worry, we’re here to help with your Monday Warm-Up.
Each new-age 1934 Bowlus Road Chief features a bespoke monocoque shell made of polished aircraft-grade aluminum over a light, high-mpg, aerodynamic aluminum frame … and you want one.
I am an unabashed fan of the tiny house movement, which does away with all the excesses of McMansions and boils living down to the bare necessities. While the Romotow isn’t quite a tiny house on wheels, the inspired look and lightweight design appeals to both my wanderlust, and desire to have as little impact on the planet as possible.
Whether it’s slinky lingerie, cheap beer, or electric cars: sex sells. I’m not gonna lie to you, either – I didn’t even notice the bike underneath the girl’s skirt on first glance. Hiding a product between a pretty girl’s legs is usually a bad sign, which makes me think that BRINK’s owners have made a […]
Mercedes-Benz introduced a new “Aero-Trailer” earlier this week, which the company claims will reduce wind resistance by 18% and improve truckers’ fuel consumption by 5%, cutting harmful C02 emissions by several tons and reducing overall fuel use (and overall fuel costs!) by millions of gallons (and dollars!) each year. The Devil Is in the Details, […]
Things you pedal have been getting a lot of play on Gas 2 in recent months – from big wheels racing big city buses to e-bikes coming from Mercedes, Ford, and Yamaha (as well as a few student design projects showing what the future of bicycle commuting might look like). Cars and motorcycles aren’t the […]
Mike Picard’s cooler-than-yours electric car, based on a vintage Willys military Jeep, was present and accounted for at EVCCON 2011. As you might recall from our original post covering Picard’s build, the NetGain WarP11 electric motor has way more horsepower (80) and torque (120 lb-ft) than its original gasoline engine (an even 60 hp […]
Delivery and courier services are some of the cornerstones of our civilization – whether it’s the pony express, snail mail, UPS, or Dominos Pizza, the idea that we, as individuals, can receive physical goods from “out there” is something most of us take for granted. American delivery businesses, for the most part, run on oil, […]
Just imagine that the oil dried up, some big war was fought, and all the people who worry about stock algorithms were taken out as collateral damage. Imagine, in other words, that the s*** went down, and only the nice guys were left. Real “the meek shall inherit the Earth” stuff.
That rig up there? That’s what those nice guys will be driving across the deserts.
Considering that its CEO seems more afraid to see the i sub-brand of BMW electric cars succeed than fail, I was a bit surprised to see BMW’s PR machine putting the i in front of as many eyeballs as possible. Then I started hearing the CIA in my fillings again. Grab your tin-hats, kids! This […]
An independent UK study recently showed that increasing the overall length of commercial trucks could dramatically reduce overall emissions without compromising safety. The study (available for download here) showed that a 2 meter increase in maximum length (without an increase in maximum weight) could “increase capacity for haulers transporting lightweight goods by up to 13%, […]
“Who Killed the Electric Car” was a documentary following the all-too-brief saga of California’s efforts to force automakers into making electric vehicles. It’s kind of a sad story. Now though, a sequel is in the works, and after reaching 10,000 fans on Facebook, the trailer to “Revenge of the Electric Car” has been released.
So far as I know, not many people from my generation want to be astronauts. It used to be the other way around; everybody wanted to be an astronaut. While getting strapped to a giant rocket and shot into space sounds appealing, living in cramped quarters with a half-dozen other human beings for months on end […]
As some of you may already know, I spent about half the summer driving around the country in an old Ford Mustang. It was an amazing experience fraught with mistakes and poorly laid plans. Next time, I will do things differently. For one, I’ll probably try to find a van or station wagon big enough to sleep […]
[social_buttons] Pretty much everything in America, at some point (and often multiple points) hitches a ride on a tractor trailer of some sort. It doesn’t matter if it is locally grown organic produce or the latest and greatest Chinese-built computer. By the time it has arrived at your home, it’s probably been on one of […]
