Horsepower… Why Not Duckpower?

Horsepower… Why Not Duckpower?
Everyone who drives a car understands the basic concept of horsepower as a way of measuring their vehicle’s engine capabilities. Counting power based on the pulling strength of horses dates back to the 18th century as a way to measure the output of steam engines, when it helped buyers understand how many draft horses they could replace with a given engine.

Is 35 Coats of Clear Coat Too Much?
Fresh from the factory, most cars come with at a shiny clear coating to give it a shine and to protect its painted finish. I’m not sure how many coats OEMs typically apply, but I can say with 100% certainty that they don’t use 35 coats.

Reliant Robin Race Simulation

Reliant Robin Race Simulation
Thanks to its silly one-in-the-front, two-in-the-back wheel setup, and complete lack of balance, the Reliant Robin is best known for its desire to roll over at the slightest attempt to corner. This was seen by many of us in a classic episode of Top Gear

If you’ve ever seen a prototype car being tested or one of the many leaked images of upcoming cars floating around the internet, you know that they’re often covered in these strange camouflage patterns. Those patterns are specifically engineered to mess with your brain and make it difficult to recognize shapes beneath them, theoretically preventing you from making out the design of the car underneath that wrap.

What to Do with Your Plastic Engine Cover

What to Do with Your Plastic Engine Cover
I’ve never quite understood the need for those silly plastic engine covers that carmakers insist on putting under our hoods these days. I suppose it’s because modern engines don’t always look like much of anything under there – take for example the non-descript aluminum panel that sits under the plastic cover on my Jaguar.

This Russian Truck Has an Appropriately Russian Easter Egg

This Russian Truck Has an Appropriately Russian Easter Egg
Russia isn’t exactly known for their cars. Most of the ones I’m aware of are either highly utilitarian, boxy trucks and vans, crazy military style off-roaders, or junky sub-compacts held together with bubble gum and spit.

Just a Lamborghini Towing a Goat Cart

Just a Lamborghini Towing a Goat Cart
I have no ideal why these two people decided to tow a goat cart using a Lamborghini Murcielago. It’s not that strange to have a trailer hitch on sports cars. I know lots of guys that have a hitch used to tow a small trailer to the racetrack with other tools, tires, and coolers.

Regular Car Reviews Checks out an Ariel Atom 3
The Ariel Atom isn’t a car you buy for fuel economy, comfort, or utility. It’s a car you buy to have fun in and tear up the race track. The first Ariel Atom that I ever saw at the track was driven by none other than drag racing legend Eddie Hill.

Rabbit Ruins Ride for NASCAR Trucks

Rabbit Ruins Ride for NASCAR Trucks
It’s one of my favorite scenes from any movie – when the razor-toothed flying rabbit rips apart a bunch of knights in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. And that’s exactly what I was thinking was going to happen when I watched this video of a wily hare that managed to stop a NASCAR Truck series practice the other day at Tennessee’s Bristol Motor Speedway.
