Pontiac Aztek + Trans Am = Trans Aztek

Pontiac Aztek + Trans Am = Trans Aztek
The Pontiac Aztek is arguably one of the ugliest vehicles ever created. While the early take on a crossover certainly wasn’t Pontiac’s proudest design moment, the brand did make lots of great sports cars over the years, with the 1970s Firebird Trans Am being one of the most iconic of its cars.

This Used to Be a Porsche Boxster

This Used to Be a Porsche Boxster
Over the years, we’ve seen some truly unusual kit cars. Oftentimes, they’re designed to make less expensive sports cars look like Lamborghinis, Ferraris, or other exotics. But in the case of the Gagliardi Vex, it’s a unique vehicle unto itself, borrowing bits and pieces from a variety of supercar styles.

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.

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.

Concepts from Future Past: 1979 Colani Sea Ranger

Concepts from Future Past: 1979 Colani Sea Ranger
The amphibious Colani Sea Ranger was built on top of a Mercedes-Benz Unimog. Or at least put together using the parts from one; it’s certainly no longer recognizable as a Unimog. The Sea Ranger is part off-road utility vehicle, part camper, and part amphibious watercraft.

This BMW Gran Coupe Has a Matching Twin Trailer
I suppose if you’re going to tow a trailer with a sports car, it shouldn’t be an ordinary box on wheels. What you’re looking at is a crazy custom-built trailer that looks just like the car that’s towing it.

This Star Trek Shuttlecraft Car Is the Best Use of a Minivan Ever
Not every vehicle needs to be a six-figure supercar to be amazing. Take, for instance this custom built Star Trek shuttlecraft on wheels that was photographed by Redditor Kalvious. Trekkies will immediately recognize this as the shuttlecraft Goddard from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

The World’s Brightest Truck Lights up the Night

The World’s Brightest Truck Lights up the Night
If you like to off-road after dark, you need a good LED light bar. There are plenty of aftermarket options out there, and a couple of truck makers even offer them as a factory option. But I can say with a high degree of certainty that none of them are as bright as the one that rctestflight installed on a truck.

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.

The Panther 6 Was a Crazy 6-Wheeled UK Sports Car
Despite spending the majority of my 50 years on this planet as a gearhead, I’m still amazed how on a regular basis, I come across a vehicle that I never knew existed. Today’s revelation? An unusual 1970s British sports car that had two extra wheels up front.

Homely Yes, But This Ferrari Can Fly

Homely Yes, But This Ferrari Can Fly
For most people the words “ugly Ferrari” are a contradiction in terms, an automotive oxymoron if you will. I would bet most of the people with that opinion have never seen the Testa D’Oro Colani, which is currently on display at Ferrari’s Maranello Purosangue Museum.

1980 Corvette 4-Door for Sale: Big ‘Ol Red Corvette

1980 Corvette 4-Door for Sale: Big ‘Ol Red Corvette
The late ’70s and early ’80s weren’t a good time for performance cars. Even the legendary Corvette was rather tame aside from its wild looks with flared fenders and swoopy roof. My dad owned multiple Corvettes of this era, and what I remember of them all was a cramped interior, an inability to see over the dash, and super heavy doors that a kid couldn’t close.

Top Anthropomorphic Cars from Film and TV
In the past few years, it seems like automakers are competing to create the smartest cars on the road. From lane assistance and intelligent cruise control to parking assistance and – before we know it – wholly autonomous vehicles.

Concepts from Future Past: American Motors Astra-Gnome
I have a strange affinity for unusual concept cars. One of the wackiest designs I’ve stumbled across in my travels has to be the American Motors Astra-Gnome, a “space age” concept that dates back to 1956.
