Nissan S-Cargo

What kind of car is this?
What the hell kind of car did I see this morning?

This interesting looking creation caught my eye this morning in traffic on the freeway. It had manufacturer plates and yellow round bug-eyed headlights.

Average speed for the trip was 45 MPH. That’s some pretty good mpg, Hans. Of course, domestic automakers continue to build giant SUVs and hope their […]

Insane cars with Hayabusa engines

After hearing that the new BMW K1600 inline six might be the new weapon of choice for micro car engine swaps (despite being larger and having less power), I thought I might do a quick post with a few micro cars with the power of the raging Hayabusa. Smart car (awesome action at 0:50): “Diablo” Smart car (warning – extremely […]

Stanced Nissan Juke after Photoshop

OK, it’s just a photoshop of one, but still. I never would have thought this ugly mini-SUV could be morphed into something I’d be happy to roll. Click picture to view full size Original: Photoshop:
