Snakes on a plane? Pass. Snakes under the hood of one of the most legendary muscle cars? Please. Ford’s latest iteration of the monstrous Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 has some serious fangs, and no amount of fluting is going to charm the speed off its scales. Check out what makes this beast so venomous:
Summer’s right around the corner, and you know what that means—it’s time to start manscaping your back for beach parties and preparing your ride for the hot July sun. You’ll have to look somewhere else for a Mangroomer, but AutoAnything has your back when it comes to giving your engine a Slurpee-grade brain freeze.
Flexalite Cooling Fans— An electric cooling fan from Flex-a-lite won’t keep a veranda-swinging southern belle cool on a sweltering Savannah summer night, but they do a bang-up job of cooling your engine—way better than stock fans, that’s for sure. Factory blades move air over your radiator like a timid lover blowing into his girlfriend’s ear for the first time. Flex-a-lite is an experienced cooling libertine, blowing your motor with enough gusto to boost your horsepower and reduce MPGs, especially if you’re towing with a heavy-duty 5th wheel hitch or gooseneck hitch.

The urge to augment is universal—it’s what drove our cavemen ancestors to paint their bodies and what continues to drive broheims to get barbed wire Celtic knots inked around their biceps. Although the urge is universal, good taste is rare. Need proof? Check out this quartet of unfortunate car mods. Continue reading
According to the NY Times, two groups of computer scientists are warning that the onboard computer systems in modern cars are vulnerable to attacks from hackers. The scientists claim that they were able to remotely control the test vehicle’s brake system and other critical systems, though they did not mention whether they were able to successfully tweak the car’s nav system to display unsolicited sales pitches for shockingly affordable Viagra.
Although the risk of hacking won’t be a real threat until cars are connected to the internet, you should still familiarize yourself with the telltale signs that your ride has been taken over by malicious dweebs. Here are the top five signs that they’re inside your matrix: Continue reading
We’re usually too busy scouring the globe for choice auto accessories to keep up with the talking heads on TV jibber-jabbering on about beltway skullduggery. But Joad Cressbeckler is a breath of fresh Black Hills air. He stands up against flannel-mouthed snake oil peddlers, and he isn’t afraid to give those he disagrees with a little what for. These two new accessories are dedicated to Joad, the orneriest prospector that ever had his own cable news show.

Remember the good old days when you could talk, text and drive all without The Man sticking his nose up your liberty? Plowing into the backs of buses while chewing the cud used to be our inalienable right. But that right to talk and maim has eroded, and you’ll need a hands free car kit to legally spread rumors about your coworkers in the Dairy Queen drive-thru. Luckily, we added up the king daddy of hands-free kits onto our site, along with a few extra automotive goodies to go along with it. Dig it:
Vizualogic BLU Logic Bluetooth Hands Free Car Kit—Here’s an idea. The next time a cop pulls you over for talking and driving, use the Ike defense and tell him, “Listen now Mr. Kansas law dog—law don’t go around here. Savvy?” Then, when you’re out of the joint and had your cudgeled-teeth replaced, install one of these hands free kits from Vizualogic.
Sherwood Factory Match Dash Kits—Warning: Heidi Montag is proof that plastic surgery is an addiction. Once your interior gets this Sherwood Innovations dash kit transplant, it may start thinking about a bumper augmentation or a grille job.
Ranch Sportwrap Tonneau Cover—Not to be mistaken for a Ranch Chicken Wrap, this hard tonneau cover from Ranch Fiberglass adds delicious looks to your rig’s rear end. Custom shaped from premium fiberglass, it sports a flat deck that wraps over the edges of your box rails for a seamless fit.
Ranch Legacy Tonneau Cover—It used to be that if someone wanted their accessory to sound cool and rugged, they’d start its name with a capital X. Ranch Fiberglass is rocking the boat by swapping out the X with the word “legacy.” We’ll let you decide whether this contoured, custom-sculpted tonneau cover lives up to its namesake.

Driving and dinning go together like wrestling and armpit shaving. In fact, if I extrapolate the data gathered from an unscientific poll of three of my coworkers, then it appears that the majority of Americans spend almost as much time eating meals behind the wheel than they do square dancing (I work with grandparents). Although eating while driving is a common activity, there are certain foods that seem perfectly engineered for consumption in cars. Here’s a basic list of five of the best foods to munch while motoring. Continue reading
