Which Watch Would Andretti Wear?


Shift HybridWant a watch with a high-octane edge? The upstart design company Menghsun Concept Design has the forearm piece for you. Behold: the Shift Hybrid. It puts the dash in haberdasher. More sports car than timepiece, this speedy watch is loaded with a litany of automotive motifs. Disc brake face. Speedometer movement. Seat belt band. The only thing it’s missing is a gas tank and a state mandate to carry insurance.

Although they’re not in production just yet, hopefully these boss men’s watches will be coming to jewelry stores and rotating display cases in finer gas station soon.

Pre-holiday Specials Going on N-O-W


You’re a card-carrying member of NOW, and we’re dyed-in-the-wool advocates for the N-O-W principle of online commerce. I won’t bore you with the philosophical maxims of N-O-W (just skim over some John Stuart Mill to get the gist), but I will share with you its core ideal: deals should involve instantaneous freeness not contingent on snail-mail rebate forms and goofy catches hidden in fine print.

To wit, we bring you the latest round of AutoAnything promotions (a silver-tongued way to say free stuff, dude).

DiabloSport: Equip your speed demon with the unholy power of the DiabloSport Trinity, and you’ll get a free 2 1/16″ gauge pod mount. That’s a $24.99 value, son, and it’s good until supplies run out.

WeatherTech: Order a set of WeatherTech Floor Mats (front mats or a mat set (hey, this isn’t fine print, bro…just a minor caveat. No N-O-W tenets have been trampled here.)), and you’ll get a pair of mini floor mat coasters. That’s a priceless value because how can you put a cost on adorableness? Plus, it’s valid from 11/16/2010 – 12/16/2010.

Borla: Buy a boss Borla exhaust system, get a free Borla hat. Simple as that.

Sasquatch Sighted at 2010 SEMA Show


Even though the 2010 SEMA show was held in Las Vegas – a good thousand miles away from his traditional stomping ground in the Pacific Northwest – sasquatch made an impromptu appearance at the custom car concourse. At least, that’s what I thought when I caught sight of the Bigfoot Express, a trick ’32 Ford custom built in honor of the real Bigfoot. Continue reading

Giant Pumpkin Puts Pontiac Out Of Misery


O, Utah. The great state with the stagnant lake and strict liquor laws. We thought your finest export was the films of Jared Hess, but it appears you’re branching out into the demolition arts, too. Hee Haw Farms out in Pleasant Grove figured out a way to both prep an enormous pumpkin for baking and to put down an aging Pontiac 6000, and they filmed the results.

What’s truly spectacular is that the chunks of fleshy gourd are all neatly contained inside the cockpit upon impact. It’s almost as though GM engineered these rides knowing that they’d inevitably become the butts of carnival-esque pranks.

Boo: Spooktacular Savings through October


Ghostbusters

All hallows eve is rapidly approaching, and you know what that means: dumping a large lump sum on a naughty nurse costume for your significant other and an ape suit for yourself. Throw in the cost of candy for the trick-or-treaters and the Goldschlager for your party, and this ghoulish holiday can take a zombie-sized bite out of your wallet.

Like the Ghostbusters vanquishing apparitions in library basements, AutoAnything is here to exorcise the high-prices gobbling away at your finances. And, we don’t even need fancy Proton Packs to do it. We’ve simply deployed a grip of promotions. Check it:

14 Funky Fly Fresh Accessories For Friday


SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM

It’s Aloha Day (R.I.P. IZ) at work today, and we were treated to our usual Free Breakfast Friday. But I have a bone to pick: Were this an authentic Aloha Day, the break room would have been filled with the sweet sweet smells of grilled Spam, sticky rice and ketchup, rather than the usual aroma of Hot Pockets and Activia. Oh well. In spite of this cultural faux pas, we still added a whopping 14 new accessories onto AutoAnything.com. Sneak a peak:

Rhino Rack Ski & Snowboard Rack

  • Feature: These roof ski & snowboard racks from Rhino Rack carry up to six pairs of skis or 4 snowboards.
  • Benefit: If you always drive around with your Burton, you’ll have at least some justification for continuing to wear that fleece jester cap, even though your friends and coworkers really know that you’re just a raging Phish-head.

Rhino-Rack Ski & Snowboard Rack

Rhino Boat Loader

  • Feature: Rhino Racks boat loader automatically loads and unloads a boat onto your roof rack.
  • Benefit: Makes boat thievery a lot gentler on your hernia.

Rhino-Rack Side Boat Loader

Rhino-Rack Cargo Bag

  • Feature: Carries a grip of gear on your roof, keeping it protected from the elements.
  • Benefit: Strikes terror in your children after you threaten to stuff the next one who screams into the time-out roof cargo bag.

Rhino-Rack Luggage Cargo Bags

Softride Top Tube Bike Frame AdapterUnlike more common cosmetic enhancements, adding a top tube won’t clear up your wrinkles, inhibit you from showing emotion or drain your wallet. But, using one of these Softride bike rack accessories changes its look and functionality all for less than $30—no risks involved.

Softride Top Tube Bike Frame Adapter

Wrockit Wrench Open-End Ratchet WrenchesOr, as Scooby-Doo would call them, Wrockit Wrench Ropen-Rend Ratchet Wrenches. These ingenious tools combine the rapid-tightening of a ratchet with the convenience of a wrench. A geneticist would call it a chimera.

Wrockit Wrench Open-End Ratchet Wrenches

Clingo Universal Hands Free PodiumThe difference that separates the Clingo hands free podium from most lecture podiums is that this one doesn’t tend to result in sweaty palms, cracking voices and a roomful of people being pictured in their underwear. But seriously, folks. These deluxe mobile electronics holders are the perfect addition to your assortment of desktop distractions.

Clingo Universal Hands Free Podium

Clingo Parabolic Sound SphereEven if geometry was never your strong point, you’re sure to appreciate how Clingo uses parabolas and spheres to create this stylish sound system. It’s both a natural amplifier for your iPhone, iPod or other portable MP3 player, and it’s a helmet in a pinch.

Clingo Parabolic Sound Sphere

Clingo Universal Car Vent MountYour vents could be spewing out the coldest of air, but your new vent-mounted Clingo mobile electronics holder is still going to look hot in your ride.

Clingo Universal Car Vent Mount

Gorilla Net Cargo NetJust as Tarzan’s jungle canopy provides security for the creatures of the rainforest, the Gorilla Net Cargo Net provides security for the contents of your truck bed. The only way to keep your stuff more secure than with these cargo nets & tie-downs would be if you trained an actual gorilla to lay in your truck bed and hold everything down with her heft.

Gorilla Net Cargo Net

Tripledge Wiper BladesThese Tripledge wipers are so thorough, even Prince Akeem Joffer would be impressed.

Tripledge Wiper Blades

Tripledge Green Wiper BladesThese are the first windshield wipers deemed safe for septic tanks, plastic pipes and municipal water systems. We’re talking greener-then-Woody-Harrelson’s-cigarettes green, and that’s mighty green, baby. Thanks, Tripledge.

Armor All Ultra Flex Wiper Blades

Armor All Premium Wiper BladesJust like “extreme” and “supreme;” adding “premium” to a product name gives it the nebulous distinction of being better. But, these Armor All wiper blades are pretty premium—they leave a thin film of water-repellent goo on your windshield, so water beads up and wipes away easier.

Armor All Premium Wiper Blades

Armor All Ultra Flex Wiper BladesYou can juice up, shave your armpits, get a spray tan, apply a glistening sheen of posing oil and flex like Lou Ferrigno. But, it won’t clear your windshield like these travel accessories from Armor All. They’re curved like a banana, which keeps them pressed against your windshield for more powerful wipes.

Armor All Ultra Flex Wiper Blades

AEM Replacement Air Intake FilterMom was right: generic-brand dextro is just as good as Robitussin in purple drank, and AEM replacement air intake filters are just as effective as K&N air filters in air intake systems.

AEM Replacement Air Intake Filter

AutoAnything Goes All Anti-Viral With New Commercial


AutoAnything Commercial

Yes, yes. Renegade gorilla marketers love to spout off about the power of viral media. But what has it gotten us? A lot of lame, quasi-handheld video clips of  people pulling off superhuman feats and bozos creating Diet Coke geysers. Hey, OK Go: if you made music that wasn’t so pedestrian, you wouldn’t have to hole up in warehouses constructing elaborate Rube Goldberg devices to get attention. Holden Caulfield wouldn’t buy into this phoniness, and we live by his example.

Here’s the thing about viral/virus/flu media: if your product or service isn’t interesting or valuable, you have to manufacture interest and value by talking about something other than your product or service (e.g. OK Go’s music—listen to it without watching the video, and you’ll understand the subterfuge). But, if you’ve got something smoking hot, you just gotta dish it up without the contrived gimmicks. And AutoAnything is like molten-Velveeta-scorching-the-roof-of-your-mouth hot.

Thus, our new commercial: simple, direct, satisfying—the media equivalent of a dry-aged New York strip steak cooked rare with a baked potato and two-fingers of scotch, neat. Check it out:

We have a grip of other videos, too, at our official AutoAnything YouTube page. Swing on by and see what’s cooking.
