The owners of the vehicles in these photos have some ridiculously real problems. How these vehicles got in these predicaments is beyond me and anyone’s guess but it is going to take some real effort on somebody’s part to get them fixed.
During SpeedWeek in 2007 a motor home got stuck in the salt. A small yellow wrecker came for a rescue and also got stuck. Next, a large yellow wrecker tried to pull them out and also got stuck. Then a large blue wrecker came to help but also got stuck. One motor home and three wreckers had to spent night stuck in the salt until they were rescued the next morning.
I guess everyone had already had bad experience with swinging gates on the wind which damaged cars. I did, but I could never imagine that this case will be that serious. Why the guy who’s been in this car is lucky you’ll see inside the post.
These photos are of scads of abandoned Corvettes some of which are very rare. This brings up several interesting questions. Who would abandon such valuable automobiles and who do they belong to now? Perhaps the most important question is: How do I get to where they are now?
As these photos prove, it is possible to convert a $60 1987 Pontiac Fiero into a Lamborghini Reventon lookalike. In fact a guy named Woody from Canada did it and all by himself as well. Using mostly steel in the construction and a 350 Chevy for power, Woody has done the seemingly impossible.
These photos seem to prove that China is expected to become the world’s No. 2 economy, if these impressive high-end luxury and exotic cars that were seen at a single wedding in China is any indication. I doubt that many of us have as many rich friends and family.
Some folks take a little bit of ingenuity a bit too far. As shown in these photos, some people will do anything to avoid those expensive repair bills. With the use of some strategically placed duct tape and a little not so common sense, just about anything is repairable.
Travel trailers used to be something you used only when you had to. However, as these photos show, that is certainly not the case anymore. Luxury is now what immediately comes to mind when looking at these hotels on wheels. My house should be as nice.
When the guy in these photos works on his brand new Hummer, he really works on it. It would appear that he is intent on removing and then reinstalling every nut and bolt on it. I wonder what it is supposed to look like when he is finished. See if you can guess.
When it comes to an accident with a train, the train always wins, hands down, regardless how large the other vehicle is. If you don’t believe it, have a look at these photos. The train is once again the clear winner in this contest.
American Muscle cars like the Camero seem invincible. However, as evidenced by these photos, they aren’t. Although the driver managed to walk away with only a scratch on the head, the beautiful car wasn’t so lucky. It is amazing that a pole can cause so much damage.
These pictures of an unbelievable flying car were sent to us by our visitor Beatriz Sturla. Thanks a ton :) Did anybody imagine that cars could ever fly? Here is the Terrafugia Transition that combines the unique convenience of being able to fold its wings with the ability to drive on any road in a modern personal airplane platform. Stowing the wings for road use and deploying them for flight at the airport is activated from inside the cockpit. Moreover you do not need a trailer or a hangar for it. You can get this by paying $194,000. See after the jump the wonders of technology.
The vehicle in these photos depicts a rather unique vehicle. It will go anywhere and do practically anything and it is homemade. The guy who built it also has a very different idea when it came to how to warm its occupants from that nasty Russian weather.
Unloading failures can happen in real life too. This mishap took place at Ernie Boch, a luxury car dealership at Norwood near Boston. The trailer loading mechanism failed and the spanking new Ferrari sports car came down with a thud. This failure is going to cost a fortune to the insurance company.
There are some hot new interiors making the automobile scene. Apparently anything goes including wild designs and even wilder colors. Reds, pinks, orange, and fuchsia are all in along with leather and speciality vinyl. I like it and think it will put some of the fun back in driving.
Jay Leno is an American stand up comedian and television host and is quite popular in United States. He is also the owner of an enormous car collection. He owns cars from every walk of life and era and some that are very rare. His collection includes such rarities as Lamborghini Countach, an Owens Magnetic, a Bentley Speed Six, and a Shelby Mustang 350 GT. He also owns a rare EcoJet which is a truly unique car of which only one model was ever manufactured. Its conception sketch was drawn on a napkin by its designers. You can see more pictures after the jump.
It seems that people will never learn that driving drunk is not that a good idea. The driver of this truck was drunk and run over a Mercedes with a couple in it. But not only they survived, they only got a few bruises.
Everything can happen on the roads, someone can scratch you or you can get dings on your car, then you need to do some straightening, put some paint etc. And this can cost you a lot. So this guy used “another approach to solve the problem.” On one hand, after what he’s done to his car he will need services of an auto repair shop rarely than others but from the other hand he just spoiled the car…
Gunbus is the world's largest bike for the roads. A man of average height standing next to a Gunbus looks very… modest. Its engine is of 6.72 liters and of 350 HP! Bike’s tires in size and shape can be comparable to those of planes. By the way, the price strikes too - 250 thousand Euros! Well, now let's look at this monster.
In the west of Sydney on a parking lot, a woman confused the car gears and crashed through a brick wall. Unfortunately for her, she was hospitalized, the car was towed to a pound and someone will have to repair the wall.
A modest car mechanician from Kazakhstan got one of the most expensive and prestigious cars in the world - the Rolls-Royce Phantom. The guy told that this idea came to him a few years ago, when sitting in the library, he saw photos of this supercar in a car magazine. Spending a total of 3 thousand dollars, the master turned an old Mercedes in the legendary vehicle.
Apparently, thieves in Vietnam steal everything they can, event the smallest parts of the cars. So, car owners had to ‘reinforce’ some elements of their cars to make it impossible for thieves to steal. Take a look..
We have a double post on limos today. We’ll start with the Audi Q7 limo. Royal Luxury has a new limo in its store to rent. It’s an Audi Q7 limo with a ‘jet door’. It can host 16 passengers and to take their words, it’s “the ultimate in luxury and convenience.” One will have to spend $500 for a 3-hours ride…
You will also see inside the post the making of a Range Rover limo…
All the cars you will see in this post crashed in 2009 and the least expensive one costs $165,000!! Lots of bad luck or bad drivers, you choose… Anyway, lots of wrecked supercars await you inside the post.
