    1406215800

    Assuming all goes to plan, automakers test their vehicles to the breaking point in the months and years leading up to that vehicle's actual release into the public. Which is good, because it's much better for a car to break in glorious fashion in the hands of the company that produces it than in ...

    Video: Worst car unloading attempt ever is quick and painful
    1397580240

    Here's a fun fact: not all automotive calamities in Russia are caught on dash cam. Occasionally, someone with just a cell phone captures some gold, like this woeful attempt at unloading what appears to be a Lada.

    Video: Russian driver attempts pull start with trolley, hilarity ensues
    1393349400

    It's frustrating when your car won't start. It's doubly frustrating when it's due to a battery issue and triply troubling when you don't have a set of jumper cables handy. Provided you own a car with a manual transmission, though, push- or pull-starting is a last-ditch tactic for when you ...

    Video: Shelby Cobra driver says 'Hey, y'all, watch this!'
    1366916400

    A burnout is like a boast, the rubber-shredding equivalent of Babe Ruth pointing his fingers at the center-field bleachers. And everyone knows once you've boasted, you've got to back it up.

    1343425560

    Locking your keys in your car is never a fun experience. You have to call the auto club or tow service, wait for them to either bring you a new key or break into your car for you.

    Let us count the ways in which this stunt fails: No Dodge Charger. No Waylon Jennings. No Daisy Duke. Need we even continue? Listen kids, if you're going to pull off a successful Duke boys stunt, you need more than a J.C. Whitney horn. While we give these guys credit for the ...

    We'd bet that most Dukes of Hazzard fans figured out by age 10 that no 1969 Dodge Charger could take the abuse dished out by the Duke boys. And even if you thought the General Lee could really nail all ...
