How Self-Driving Cars Will Change Our Lives

How Self-Driving Cars Will Change Our Lives

It’s no longer a question of how, but when. Autonomous cars are coming to steal our beloved car culture in America. But will we let them succeed? Uber was the target of the same scrutiny when they first entered the landscape. With this type of service, would people purchase less cars? Almost surprisingly, the answer has been a resounding yes… well, sort of. The truth is that people still drive their cars because they have to. But for those that…

Five Warning Lights You Need To Know

Five Warning Lights You Need To Know

We all used to have to drive our cars around wondering if they were running alright. The second we would feel a few irregular bumps on the highway, we would panic and believe we ran over a nail.

Until now. Nowadays, our…

Elon Musk’s Least Favorite Movie

Elon Musk’s Least Favorite Movie

Elon Musk most likely has no time whatsoever to watch any movies. After all, he runs multiple companies and works on migrating to another planet during his spare time. But…. If he were to ever watch a movie with his child, I’m confident he wouldn’t be enthused about one in particular. I even want to take this a step further and say that he is ultimately upset with anything that isn’t an electric vehicle. In other words, you can say…

NASA Watches the Roadster Disappear Into Space

NASA Watches the Roadster Disappear Into Space

The iconic image of the dummy referred to as “Starman” sitting in his Tesla Roadster will forever have to remain in already existing pictures. Yesterday, astronomers looked out into space to watch the car vanish into deep space. As a Near-Earth object for the last week, NASA had to watch it closely to ensure that it didn’t too anything abnormal or unexpected while in orbit in close proximity to our planet. In a way, that makes Elon’s “silly” prank a…

The Cars Mechanics Drive

The Cars Mechanics Drive

I have a lot of friends that are mechanics and/or shop owners. They all seem to have completely different tastes in vehicles. Kevin, who is one of my dearest friends, owns and drives almost exclusively Chevy Suburbans from one series, 98–2002 or somewhere in there. The Suburban fits his needs. It pulls his boat, travels thousands of miles of high mountain dirt roads in search of fishing holes, hauls motorcycles, etc. Ford and Chevy seem to be his sweet spots….

The First Car in Space

The First Car in Space

Is this the coolest image of the decade? It’s hard to argue against it. As I hope most of you know already, Elon Musk sent a new Tesla Roadster into space with his latest Space-X rocket launch. The Roadster is currently in orbit. A Red Car for the Red Planet Test flights of new rockets usually contain mass simulators in the form of concrete or steel blocks. That seemed extremely boring. Of course, anything boring is terrible, especially companies, so…
