Forget the Jeep Chief. The Wrangler Africa is where it's at.

Yeah, yeah, the Jeep Chief concept's cool. You know what's also cool? Getting where you're going. That's why the Wrangler Africa is the belle of the Easter Jeep Safari ball. No bullshit wheels, 35-inch BFGoodrich mud terrains and a two-inch lift aren't even the half of it. Check out the full write up. » 3/19/15 3:25pm 3/19/15 3:25pm

This 400-hp Toyota wagon is the scariest thing I've ever driven

This is Kevin Harris' '79 Toyota Corona wagon, packing a full JZA70 swap out of a MKII Mark III Supra. The engine's cranking out around 400 horsepower, and it's wedged down into a car that weighs about as much as an ND Miata. It's fast. It wants to be sideways all the time, in every gear. It also has nothing but the… » 3/18/15 3:57pm 3/18/15 3:57pm

Oh, God. I bought a Dodge with 281,000 miles on it.

This is it. This is how I know I've lost my goddamned mind. I willingly handed over American currency for this: a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 with 281,000 miles on the odometer. Why? Because a new truck costs more than my mortgage. Because I've seen more half-tons with their transmissions puked out over a garage floor than I… » 3/13/15 12:34pm 3/13/15 12:34pm

Chuck Cantwell, the living badass behind the GT350R

Last year, we had a chance to speak with Chuck Cantwell, the chief engineer behind the 1960s Shelby GT350R. Cantwell was hired by Carroll Shelby himself; he worked as a project engineer in Los Angeles during the Shelby marque's golden years and was responsible for both street and race GT350s, among other things.… » 1/12/15 2:39pm 1/12/15 2:39pm

Busted: the price for breaking into a national park on a dirtbike

If you're stupid enough to break into a national park during a government shutdown and write about it, you're going to get busted. I knew that when I did it last year, but it didn't take the sting out of standing in federal court with $15,000 in fines or 18 months of incarceration looming over my head. All this for… » 9/29/14 2:40pm 9/29/14 2:40pm

Caterham, Lotus, or Dyson Racing?

Colin Chapman was doing the Lord's work when he crafted the brilliant Lotus Seven. Some 57 years later, there are all manner of interpretations of the man's ethos. We took three of the best, the Caterham 7 S3, the Lotus Exige V6 Cup, and the Dyson Racing Caterham SP/300.R to Sonoma Raceway, threw Jack Baruth the keys… » 9/18/14 2:52pm 9/18/14 2:52pm

Holy shit. Nissan turned the Leaf into an El Camino.

Yes. This is a Nissan Leaf Ute. These two dudes, Rolland Schellenberg and Arnold Moulinet, whipped the thing up to cruise around the Nissan Technical Center in Arizona, hauling parts and people. They call it the Sparky. Swoon.

We took a Ferrari 458 Speciale to chase down the fastest man on The…

There's a man who worships at the altar of the Dragon. We can't tell you his name. We can't show you what he looks like. He knows the ebb and flow of traffic, and when the road's abandoned. His FD RX-7 is built specifically to take on the dizzying turns, dips, and climbs that make up one of the most challenging… » 9/11/14 1:05pm 9/11/14 1:05pm

California police chase 75-year-old dude in military surplus truck

Yep. An unnamed 75-year-old led the Huntington Beach Police Department on a merry chase at around 10 mph through town yesterday night. When the driver finally stopped, officers gave him a failure to yield citation and let him go about his business.

Like I needed more proof that California really is just like GTA. Read… » 9/10/14 3:02pm 9/10/14 3:02pm

The NASCAR driver will compete in the Sprint Cup race at Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend. Head over to Road & Track for a video and breakdown of Stewart's… » 8/29/14 1:53pm 8/29/14 1:53pm
