Now this is the kind of garage we want.
It isn't usually news when a parking structure is torn down. Then again, few parking structures have the significance of 1401 Wilson Boulevard in Rosslyn, VA. That's because the twin, 12-story structures are where Washington Post reporter and legend of journalism Bob Woodward met his contact in the lead up to the Watergate Scandal.
Pep Boys, the auto parts and service chain where your 17-year-old self got those hideous clear taillights for your first car, is set for a massive rebranding effort that will see it focus even more heavily on personal service.
Jay Leno might be the celebrity that's known for an impressive car collection, but there's no shortage of big names stars that enjoy picking up new rides. Tim Allen, star of Home Improvement, Toy Story, and Galaxy Quest is one of those celebs. Being a Detroiter, Allen's collection of muscle cars shouldn't be a huge surprise. However, it's the generally eclectic feel of his collection that makes it interesting.
It's been a couple of years since we last heard about Holger Schubert and his award-winning office/garage, but it looks like the city of Los Angeles, thankfully, did not force him to tear down the bridge that gives his Ferrari 512 BBi arguably the nicest parking spot in California. Petrolicious is back again with another well-done video, which finally introduces us to Schubert as well as his lust-worthy Ferrari.
Attention amateur mechanics: Here's a quick lesson in what not to do should your engine catch fire.
Infographics are the energy bars of information delivery – not bad for you, lots of tasty calories and just enough to get you by, but not so heavy on the lasting sustenance.

Your garage should be a sacred place, somewhere that your precious car can hide away from the outside world and its ever-looming threats of bird poop, road salt and bears. Yes, bears should generally not be allowed into your garage, but this homeowner from Lake Tahoe, California apparently didn't get the memo.
There's really no website we like better than Bring A Trailer. In fact, when Congress passes the Stop Online Piracy Act and the corporations shut down everything on the Internet except WhiteHouse.gov, we're probably going to be more upset at losing BaT than our own jobs.
Perhaps we ought to subtitle this post, "Fun with extension cords and electrical tape," or "What's a building code violation?"
Just when you thought the world was safe from Robert Van Winkle, the O.G. Vanilla Ice rears his frosted tips once again. Don't run for the hills just yet – the guy isn't bent on releasing a new attack on hip-hop this time. Instead, he's jumping feet first into hawking garage/loft condos for The Car Loft. Haven't heard of the project? There's probably a good reason for that.
