We don't go around telling people how to spend their money (okay, we kinda do in a way), but we can tell when someone has spent their money wisely, and the gents from Team Galag have spent some $1.6 million very, very wisely . . . by building a Batman Tumbler replica. The street-legal ride sports a 6.2-liter V-8, a top speed of 100 mph, and will be out at the 2013 Gumball in Copenhagen. In other words, it looks like we're going to Copenhagen.
We'd advise you to start saving for one of these rides now, but let's be honest, by the time you could afford most on the list it would be too late (what with the zombie apocalypse here and all). If you find yourself searching for the ideal vehicle to keep your ass alive, however, these would be your 10 best options:

You probably already know the benefits of using whiskey stones instead of ice in your drink. Basically, they cool your drink without watering it down so you get all the flavor you expect at a bit more pleasant temperature. With these Icon Whiskey Stones, you can add a bit more fun to your boozing experience. Available ... continue reading
If you live in NYC, owning a bike is as much a necessity as knowing good pizza places and despising tourists. For most, it's the easiest way to get around that doesn't require filling up a MetroCard. Most of the rides you'll see as you navigate the city blocks are run-of-the-mill two-wheelers that you can pick ... continue reading
When the Nissan Juke was originally released, men everywhere released a collective sigh of total ambivalence. It was never bad looking, or incredibly slow, or horribly expensive and it's decently spacious, but there was never a wow factor either. Nothing to grab you by the nads and proclaim in a sultry engine growl ... continue reading
The first time I saw a Scion cruising down the road about 5 or 6 years ago, I thought “What is that?” It didn’t really impress me or impact me much at all, but I remembered the name Scion and I began to see the Toyota owned company grow.
Unbeknownst to me, I was not only witnessing a new outlet for modern ... continue reading
If you thought the scariest thing you could see on the road was some guy in a Hummer talking on his cell while sipping a chai latte, think again. Some dude in China who goes by the name Steel Legend has built himself an 11,000lbs Megatron Tank. Our DIY projects while cool to us - beer bottle chandeliers, man ... continue reading
Threewheelers are, in all honesty, a little bit weird. It's not really a car and it's not a motorcyle, so what is it? We could go into a bunch of details about the original Morgan (won the French grand prix in 1913, set several long-distance speed records in the 1930s and lapped Brooklands at more than 100mph), ... continue reading

It's a well documented fact that men like doodling. One quick glance at the pad of paper on your desk, or your collection of trapper keepers from grade school is all the proof we need. For most of us, it merely serves as something to prevent boredom while we wait on hold to yell at unsuspecting customer service ... continue reading
What do you need to throw the most ridiculous outdoor party ever? Outside of the women, beer, pizza, and music are a good place to start. But how about throwing in a full bar that happens to be mounted to one of the most extreme cargo bikes ever created? It might sound like fiction, but it's actually the HopWorks ... continue reading
At some point in your life you built models. Maybe you built trains or fighter jets, or even those giant Japanese robots. The point is, you built something. So did your dad, and his dad, and someday your kids. Thankfully, James-Michael Gregory Harlan never grew out of that phase. Which is why we get to see the ... continue reading
The Yamaha VMax motorcycle is touted by many as one of the most perfect balances of price, performance, and style on two wheels. It looks good. It sounds good. Ownership doesn't require the black market sale of one of your organs. Even with horsepower and torque numbers like 197.4 and 123 (respectively) Yamaha ... continue reading
With looks this good, we're sufficiently convinced that nothing relating to math, science, or engineering really matters because we could stare at this thing for hours. If you're looking for a little more geeky and not content simply staring at this beauty, don't worry, there's plenty to love when the shell comes ... continue reading
We can think of a long list of crazy things to do with a Volkswagen Beetle. Crash it into a wall. Hippie chicks. Herbie: Fully Loaded. Assorted things with Lindsey Lohan during Herbie: Fully Loaded. Crushing it with a giant robot. You get the idea. Never, and we mean like "in a million years" never, would we have ... continue reading
They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. That is an old wives tale. The way to a man's heart is through his crotch. Yeah, yeah, we know: sex, sex, and more sex. It's all we think about it. Except in this instance we're actually referring to the rumble, the vibrations, and the heat from a modified ... continue reading
