Coffee Powered Car Probably Has Really Bad Breath

Coffee breath. The downfall of the modern man. And possibly the modern vehicle. The Carpuccino is a 1988 VW Scirocco which has been modified to run off of coffee. Apparently this bad boy will run three miles per kilogram of ground coffee, making it oddly similar to the run time of an average human being. That’s about 56 espressos a ...

Back to the Future DeLorean Monster Truck

Whoever thought attaching a DeLorean to a set of monster truck wheels was a good idea deserves some sort of medal. Mystified and thrilled were my emotions when I first set eyes on this beautifully absurd creation. Does the addition of the heavy wheels mean we’re going to need more than 1.21 gigawatts?

Wireframe Lambo is Slightly More Affordable Than the Real Thing

While I’ll probably never be able to afford a real Lamborghini on my meager blogger’s salary, if I save up every paycheck, and every other Lambo fanatic somehow goes completely broke over the next few decades or so, than I might be able to save up enough for Benedict Radcliffe’s $65,000 Wireframe Lambo.

This gutted UNICAT TerraCross all-terrain vehicle has been modified into a pretty slick living environment. An apartment on wheels. Sort of like an RV with attitude. While I’m not one for living on the road, I’m sure many of you who love to travel would all-but sell your soul for a mobile apartment like this. I’ll stick to my non-wheeled ...
