A while back, Simone Giertz - the queen of shitty robots - converted her Tesla model 3 into a pickup truck because she needed to haul lumber and bodies. Naturally, she drove it to Elon Musk's reveal of HIS Tesla pickup.

Creativity knows no bound. When it comes to building a motorcycle in your yard, while some ideas are better than others, everyone gets points for creativity, whether the result is amazing or an eyesore. In the case of Brent Walker's work, it's hard to tell whether these custom tiny bikes are terribly cute or just a little weird. Or both. One thing's for sure, we can't stop staring and the execution is pretty spotless.

This is not some syrupy sweet nor kissy-kissy love affair with the electric car. Many of the pitfalls are covered in this documentary as well.
Pop some corn and sit down for this one. RT 41:02.

Revealed at the 1969 Turin Motor Show, Bertone showed off this wild ride which looks a bit like what might have happened if Speed Racer's Mach 5 mated with a powerboat.

My father-in-law Rick used to drive dragsters competitively, and even holds an unbreakable world record (as that racing association - the AHRA - no longer exists). Next weekend he will be inducted into the Arizona Drag Racing Association's Hall of Fame for his contributions to the sport. Well done, old bean.

"Dear Smokey Yunick, I installed a four barrel carburetor into my 67 Pontiac Le Mans. While I had the car up on the lift, I screwed on four square wheels. Now the car won't move."
Answer? "The 351 cubic inch engine from GM was never designed for a 4bbl carb."

Mercedes froze a 1979 G Class SUV in time forever. They used 44.4 tons of synthetic resin to show their car is “stronger than time”. This was used to attract the crowd at the 2018 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit earlier this month.

The 2018 G-Class vehicle was released at the event and the frozen predecessor was used to attract the customers. The latest version of the vehicle has the same style as the predecessor but has an array of modern features and technologies.

Designed and built in Britain, the OX is unlike any other vehicle and has no competitor - whether from a concept, performance or pricing point of view. It is the world's first flat-pack vehicle, with a revolutionary design that offers all-terrain mobility for all.

As the saying goes, you will never create something revolutionary without trying something different. Some of these ideas may not have turned out so hot but as another saying goes, if you're not trying, you're not making mistakes.

An opinion piece from a couple of years ago. Is this an altruistic gesture by Elon Musk? Doubtful, as creating the infrastructure for a differently powered vehicle gives his company a more firm footprint.
