It is official. You can buy just about anything on Taobao for the cheap, now including used Boeing 747 Jumbo Jets. Yep. That’s plural right there because there are not one, not two, but three on the block and they are available on Taobao alongside other more mundane items like real estates, motor vehicles, and boats. These aircraft, all of which are Boeing 747-400ERF, were seized by a court in Shenzhen after its owner Jade Cargo went bust in 2013.

BMW i3 “Spaghetti Car” by Maurizio Cattelan Sold For A Cool €100,000

First of all, I have no idea why a German car is decorated with Italian definitive symbol of cuisine, spaghetti, and presented in an auction by BMW France. Quite a mix, don’t you think? Anyways, the car you see here is the BMW i3 “Spaghetti Car” as touched by artist Maurizio Cattelan, the same artist behind the solid 18-karat toilet bowl. For some reasons unknown to our non-artistic minds, Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari, collectively called TOILETPAPER (!?), have decided to use the duo’s signature style spaghetti close-up imagery to decorated a BMW i3 and the result is, to us, both quirky and strangely alluring.

Not-for-sale Razer Chroma Mug On eBay UK Gets Razer CEO’s Due Attention

Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan had specifically said that the Razer Chroma Mug is strictly a non sale item. It was an exclusive gift presented to partners and close friends with some set aside for loyal fans through a sweepstake or something of sort, but in this Internet age, non sale item doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get it, well, that’s if you are prepared to drop a cool 1,220 English pounds or more (about an insane $1,520!). As it appears, at least one partner of Razer or close friend is not appreciating the exclusivity bestowed on him or her because this person, referred to as eBay seller dezolator-uk, has put it up for auction on eBay.

Trust Me, You Will Want This Pristine 80s Honda ATC 70 Three-Wheeler

Regardless of your argument on whether a three-wheeler is a motorcycle or not, you can’t deny that the 1984 Honda ATC 70 Three-Wheeler was probably one of the greatest thing the Japanese marque has rolled out in the 80s. While the performance offered by the ATC 70’s 72 cc, four-stroke engine is definitely not something to shout about, it is by no means a toy ride. On contrary, it is a full-fledged three-wheel motorcycle that comes complete with an automatic clutch, adjustable throttle, an upper design that was a familiar sight of the 80s Honda motorcycle, and also, fat, knobby tires that makes this the ideal beginner ride that to take on the beaten trails.

Good News! 2016 Nike Mag Can Be Yours And Here’s How To Get It

Last year was the year of the supposed future as foretold by Robert Zemeckis. Though we didn’t quite get flying cars, self-drying jacket or holographic billboard, at least hoverboard was kind of real and so was the unforgettable self-lacing Nike Mag shoes worn by Marty McFly. Thanks to the enhancement in battery and motor technology, Nike Mag is real and in 2015, a functional pair was hand-delivered to actor Michael J. Fox who played the young McFly in the hugely successful Back to the Future trilogy. In 2012, a version of this iconic Nike Mag was created and put up for auction to benefit Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and today, Nike and The Michael J. Fox Foundation has come together once again to announce the release of Continue reading Good News! 2016 Nike Mag Can Be Yours And Here’s How To Get It

1995 Volkswagen “Fast & Furious” Jetta Sold For $46,200 At Scottsdale Sale

More often than not, the protagonist’s car in a movie can easily turn into an iconic ride, but in the case of The Fast and the Furious, Paul Walker’s character, Brian, 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse didn’t quite turn iconic for reasons most car lovers know. Not that 4G63 is any bad, but seriously, a front wheel drive machine can be hardly called a sport car for some. We can’t argue with the design though, but the 10s car and American Muscle with “too much torque” kind of stole the show. No, wait. Actually, there was another car that managed to steal bits of the limelight; the 1995 Volkswagen Jetta, Jesse’s (played by Chad Lindberg) ride which he lost to Tran’s Honda S2000 in a drag challenge. Whenever I see that scene, I can’t help but to shake my head. Man, what the hell was that boy thinking? Going up against a rich dude’s ride and a S2000? Gosh… Continue reading 1995 Volkswagen “Fast & Furious” Jetta Sold For $46,200 At Scottsdale Sale
