There's something fantastically insane about racers who go out on their own and build something unique. Just take this crazy video from last year of a twin-engine Dodge SRT4 at a drag strip that can burn the rubber at either end – or both ends – at a moment's notice.
An elderly woman in Austin, Texas got a scare when she accidentally drove her Dodge Neon into a swimming pool during what was supposed to be a routine trip to the grocery store. Security cameras caught 86-year-old Mary Lee Fine as she barreled through a fence, hit some patio furniture and splashed down.
