Tom Hanks Is Getting A Custom Restored Fiat 126p Because, Tom Hanks

Oh, Look, Someone Actually Made A Custom Car In The Likeness Of A Dick

Dickhead is a vulgar slang defined by “a stupid, irritating, or ridiculous man.” Now, if Batman’s ride is a Batmobile, wouldn’t the aforementioned person’s ride called Dickmobile? And Dickmobile this is. I mean, seriously, we don’t even need to tell you this, do we? Not that the person who created it is a dickhead or anything. Just that it is too obvious what it is. The intention however is not as vulgar as it seems. As it turns out, this car was created way back in 1969 by one Steve Paige and it was meant to be an “art car”, but really what was its purpose is unclear to us. Perhaps if you know something about this rolling willy, you can point us to the right direction. Continue reading Oh, Look, Someone Actually Made A Custom Car In The Likeness Of A Dick

Star Trek Shuttlecraft Car Is A Minivan Mod That Makes Sense

Modding minivan, AKA MPV, is borderline waste of time (OK. IT IS a waste of time). I mean, seriously, what can one get out of it? Speed? With so many people in it? However, if you are thinking of turning a minivan into a BatVan, or a Goddard, a Federation Type 6 Shuttlecraft straight out of Star Trek: The Next Generation you see here, then that’s a different story. In fact, if you are hell bent of making a statement with your mundane van, those are the only two mods you should consider. Period. The Star Trek Shuttlecraft Car was from a few years ago (as far back as 2014). Continue reading Star Trek Shuttlecraft Car Is A Minivan Mod That Makes Sense

The Volvo V70 Turned “Tank” That Has Us Enthralled Is Now On The Block

Remember the one person who took “Volvos are built like a tank” a little too literally and in the process, puts smile on a lot of people faces? Well, apparently, it is has been put up on the block for the sake of Ben Charity. As it turns out, this thing is located in Loughborough, the U.K and the seller has listed it on eBay in a no reserve auction. In case you are interested, it will ship to U.K., the U.S., and Australia, and at the time of this writing, it has garnered 35 bids which push the price to a modest £2,300. The car, or rather the “tank,” started life as a year 2000 Volvo V70 Estate and it was created for a charity run for the best five driving roads in the Alps which it emerged as the winning car out of the 40 other rides in the Bangers for Ben 2017 charity run.

This Custom 67’ VW Bus Is A Practical Tribute To The Doc Brown’s DeLorean

OK. The 1967 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon 3-Door Van your see here looks nothing like the Doc Brown’s time-traveling DeLorean from Back to the Future, although it is a tribute to the iconic time-traveling car. Disregarding the obvious dissimilarity, if Doc were to need a time-traveling vehicle that is a lot less claustrophobic and capable of taking more people to join him in breaking the time-space continuum, this will be the one ride. While it may not actually time-travel, nor does it look like a DMC ride, it does bear the appropriate paint job, custom built gullwing style doors, time machine console with the appropriate switches, and “working” Flux Capacitor. Continue reading This Custom 67’ VW Bus Is A Practical Tribute To The Doc Brown’s DeLorean

One Person Took “Volvos Are Built Like A Tank” A Little Too Literally

You know how people used to say old Volvos are built like tanks? The saying was probably stem from the marque’s proven track record of survivability in accidents – thanks to the company relentless pursuit of safety since the 70s. My dad used to own a Volvo 200 series that hailed from the 1980s and boy, were the doors thick like a tank’s armor (figuratively speaking, that is) and while thankfully, we did not met with any accident, I can only imagine the ultra thick door probably would have stood up to most impacts. Anyways, as it turns out, someone may have took the aforementioned saying a little too literal by turning his (or was it her?) V70 into a road-going tank, or at least, one that bears an uncanny resemblance to a tank. Continue reading One Person Took “Volvos Are Built Like A Tank” A Little Too Literally

Daihatsu Copen Turned ” Mini GT-R”: Blasphemy Or Awesomeness?

We heard Japanese Liberty Walk have been turning out pretty crazy custom rides with their custom aero kits. A look at the company’s latest creation, what we heard might just be true. The custom ride in question, called Nissan GT-K, is based on a K-class Daihatsu Copen. For the uninitiated, Copen is a tiny roadster that, IMHO, barely fits a grown-ass man. Words cannot emphasize how small this car is and if you knew how small it is, you will agree to it into a mini Godzilla is something rather intriguing. Btw, you heard right. Liberty Walks had a Daihatsu Copen slapped on with some pretty serious aeros, turning a previously cute roadster into a menacing mini Nissan GT-R.
