    1392685080

    Video: Man turns Ford Fiesta into a one-car band
    1384789500

    The one-man band is a rather ridiculous idea, drawing up images of one person attempting to manipulate several instruments, at once, in a vain attempt at creating music. It's usually represented by silly scenes like this. Interestingly, the concept isn't much more successful when the "man" in ...

    1315434480

    After a particularly rough day, few things are more cathartic than getting in your car and reveling in some choice tunes to suit your mood.

    Honk? How 'bout "Move it, Sucka!"?
    1188399720

    It'll cost you about the same as an iPod, but it's so much cooler. Or obnoxious.
