True Survivor: The Only 1969 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air V Test Vehicle
For the 1969 year model, Pontiac produced 697 Firebird Trans Ams, including 8 total convertibles. All the Trans Am made for 1969 were Cameo White with Tyrol Blue accents, and almost all rolled on the optional Rally II wheels. What most of them didn’t have was the Ram Air V engine, actually, none of them had it, officially.
1968 Hemi Charger Aims For 200-MPH
We’ve all heard some crazy stories from the Bonneville salt flats of high-octane racers traveling at ridiculous speeds. While over teams aim for acceleration at a drag strip, these drivers and builds require top speed. Even the current world land speed record of over 763 miles per hour was set in a desert, which is a good case for many enthusiasts to get into the sport. Unlike most motorsports, these racers compete against their own records, which is why they have a reputation for making history in the automotive field. This particular car was built for the incredibly high speed of 200 mph but fell short of its mark before being hidden away for decades from the public.
Rainbow Sheikh Built A Huge Hummer H1
Rainbow Sheikh, real name Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, of the United Arab Emirates is a fan of extreme car builds. When we say “extreme” that’s actually a bit of an understatement. With an estimated worth of something around $20 billion, he unlike Elon Musk likes to really flaunt it with material possessions, including some of the craziest vehicles you’ll ever see. His latest one, an oversized Hummer H1, is a perfect example.
Hertz CEO Trying To Downplay Stolen-Rental Scandal
Hertz got into a lot of trouble a few months ago when some customers complained of having been arrested or accused of grand theft auto after renting one of their cars. The Florida-based car rental company has been a staple of American travel for years but had fallen on some tough times in 2020 due to decreased traveling. Of course, you could make the case that this led to a lack of attention to detail, leading to the company's recently brought up errors. Whatever the case, a new CEO came on board to get the company back on track, and, according to Stephen M. Sherr, it may already be there.
Tom Brady Doesn't Only Collect Super Bowl Rings, Check Out His Car Collection
Retiring with the most Super Bowl wins, and then coming back, the most game-winning drives in a Super Bowl, the oldest player to win a Super Bowl, and a slew of other records and accomplishments that can only fall under one name: Tom Brady. That's not to say he's the most loved player in the game, one of Brady's accomplishments seems to be agitating sports journalists with his inability to lose. Also, it seems when you win enough, people start rooting for the 'underdog', which is basically an imaginary animal in a league that only recruits the elite, best-of-the-best players, so respect where respect is due. All of that being said, we woke up this morning wondering what the GOAT of the NFL keeps in his garage, and some digging around yielded some winning results, here are a few highlights of Tom Brady's car collection.
1967 Jaguar E-Type Le Mans By Design Velke Is A Masterpiece
Jaguar is one of those automotive companies whose reputation for building luxury cars and racers surpasses nearly every other brand on the European market. These sleek beasts are terrifying with an excellent black paint job and low-profile racing tires, but sometimes you need something more flamboyant. That's exactly where this car comes in as it sports a paint job you might only expect from a particular Italian brand with a similar affection for the color red. With nearly 55 years of racing pedigree under its belt, this is a stunning sight to behold on any street, track, or car show. The car could be yours with a simple click of a button, but first, let's talk about some of its more prominent attributes.
Barn Find Dodge Viper Is A Nightmare Come True
Back in the day, that is the 1990s, people considered the Dodge Viper to be an amazing, valuable machine. Raw and visceral, they were appropriately named since anyone who didn’t exercise caution with one would get bit. They were a worthy successor to the Shelby Cobra’s legacy, a fact which raises the ire of many a Ford enthusiast, but even they would agree treating one like this barn find should be a flogging-worthy offense.
Make It A Point To Visit The Throttlestop Motorcycle Museum

World’s Lowest Mileage F-250 Gets Full Detail After Four Decades Of Sitting
1970s pickup trucks from every manufacturer, including Chevy, Ford, and Dodge, have long been regarded as the go-to choice for anyone in the market for a utilitarian workhorse that could get any job done with ease. From hauling big loads across the country to performing essential farm work that requires brute force, these vehicles were the perfect tool for the job. However, today we will talk about a truck used for what many would consider being the exact opposite of what it was made to do, nothing. That's right, this truck has been sitting in a garage for over 42 years since its initial purchase in 1978, and now it is ready to emerge from storage once again to get a proper wash.
C8 Corvette Ripped In Half And Then Caught On Fire
The Corvette C8 was designed to drive to the extreme, in the right conditions and with the right driver. When the wrong driver on the wrong road tries to flex with one, it will always end the same, on a long enough timeline. Such was the case for this rare Slime Green C8 Corvette, which was only very recently purchased.
Celebrate Groundhog Day With Bill Murray
Bill [explicative] Murray revisiting his role in Groundhog Day while piloting a Jeep Gladiator with his furry friend is (arguably) the best commercial featuring a groundhog, if there even is any competition. For the 2020 Super Bowl ad, he piloted a 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon and gave everyone a nice dose of nostalgia while reprising his role as Phil Connors from the 1993 film Groundhog Day. Even better, the ad surfaced on actual Groundhog Day where Punxsutawney Phil predicted an early spring, which the rodent did not do this year.
