A Car Called Hurricane

Could this be one of the best cars never made? I have written on the subject of unusual and very unusual here before. But this one really captures the imagination. This concept car designed and built (in all too low quantities) by Australia’s Holden Motor Company is incredibly beautiful. The lines, the way you get in, the […]

Ghost Captured on Camera

This is pretty amazing. The production company was apparently filming this car commercial, when they accidentally captured what can only be an image of a ghost on camera. Before you watch, turn the sound on (you need to turn it up quite loud, or you won’t hear it). Then watch the car very closely.  Just […]

Spell AC/DC…

How hard can it be to spell the name of your favourite band, especially when your favourite band happens to be, well, AC/DC? Maybe if you are from Greenacre, and the pressure is on because if you spell it correctly you get not only a CD, but you go in the draw for a rock-star […]

Transport For the Last Mile

You would think that all you need do this is is a bike (like these people). But apparently not. So you could always tow your car around behind you. Well actually there is a much classier way of solving this problem. Or if you don’t want to drive a small two seater sports car for […]

The Decay of Motor City, USA

I wrote recently that Chernobyl, that most unlikely of holiday destinations, was now open for business, and looking to attract travellers interested in something a little unusual. Recently, I cam across some of the most incredible photos of another city – Detroit – which is also in decline, though not quite through such tragic and […]

Squashed Car Art (Sydney)

Strolling along the Rocks in Sydney, and this is what we find. Slightly odd, and you can imagine that of course we would have jumped immediately to the aid of the driver of the car. And then we saw the sign. Phew! Very helpful. I wonder when we will get to a point where they have similar […]

Evolution Of Iconic Taxi’s (New York City)

I have written here before about the evolution of the London Routemaster Bus. That post made me think of the evolution of other iconic designs, especially those that define a city. The London Black Cab and New York Taxi are without a doubt two of these. Turning first to the New York cab. If you […]

How I Intend to Get to Work in Future (Part 3 – Flying Car)

Although it has been proved otherwise (see here, for previous post about the world’s most useless machine), in theory every invention should be fixing some kind of problem. Well the problem that this invention apparently addresses is (according to the company’s website) as follows: “Every pilot faces uncertain weather, rising costs, and ground transportation hassles […]

Staying Above it All

So recently most people heard about the traffic jam into Bejing that lasted not 1 hour, or 4 hours or even a day but a whopping 9 days, nearly causing a humanitarian disaster (!) as drivers were left without food, water and fuel (to warm themselves, its not like they were going anywhere). How do […]

Is this the World’s Coolest Car?

I give you the Dymaxion. The Dymaxion is nothing new, but even today would be ahead of its time. In 1933 an american maverick (does anyone else have mavericks?) Richard Buckminster Fuller decided to put his skills as a deisgner, architect and generall all round ideas guy to the test, and build a car. Previously […]
