    1406068200

    Video: Watch this R/C tank tow a real Toyota SUV
    1319576400

    It's no Ford F-150, but this toy tank earns our respect for its towing prowess nonetheless. That second-generation Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Model 90 weighs over two tons, but the not-so-little remote control tank seems to have no problem pulling it through a parking lot to the amusement of quite ...

    Get your Flux Capacitors right here!
    1197323700

    Okay, let's get this straight. Back to the Future movies: cool. Making your DeLorean into a replica of the movie car: incredibly lame. Halfway between would be a reproduction flux capacitor.

    Autoblog Project Edsel part 2 - Paint, round one
    1191022140

    Yeah, so that didn't work out so well. At least I'll get more practice painting. Project Edsel's time for primer had come, so I thinned some Tamiya X21 into the reservoir and fired up the compressor.

    1156365180

    If you own a classic VeeDub, chances are you might have some old vinyl LPs lying around as well. Classic tunes just seem to sound better with a little scratch and pop.
