This Fiat Uno Has 8 Wheels for No Good Reason

This Fiat Uno Has 8 Wheels for No Good Reason
While the idea of a 6×6 Mercedes G-wagon has tremendous appeal to me, it’s not necessarily the case that more wheels are always better. Take, for example, this ridiculous looking creation that recently turned up in Russia.

Russians Go Curling with Cars

Russians Go Curling with Cars
Curling is a game I don’t understand at all. It’s done on ice and has people sliding a stone that looks like an old iron down an icy lane. People in front of the puck use brooms to polish the ice and control where the thing goes.

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.

How Russians Deal with Obnoxious Drivers

Russian Dirt Track Racing

Russian Dirt Track Racing
Here’s some great POV footage of a race in Russia in which competitors drive cheap hatchbacks, at times driving dangerously close to one another.
