Joe finally decided to tie the knot with his long-time girlfriend.
One evening, after their honeymoon, he was welding some stuff in the garage, just for fun.
His new wife was standing there at the bench watching him.
After a long period of silence she finally spoke.
“Honey, I’ve just been thinking, now that we’re married, maybe it’s time you quit spending all your time out here in the shop.
You probably should just consider selling all your welders along with your gun collection and that stupid vintage Harley.`
Joe got a horrified look on his face. She said, “Darling, what’s wrong?”
He replied, “There, for a minute, you were starting to sound like my ex-wife.”
“Ex-wife!” she screamed, “YOU NEVER TOLD ME YOU WERE MARRIED BEFORE!”
Joe replied, “I wasn’t.”
Over the years there have been a lot of wacky inventions that have come to the forefront and people have actually bought. Just think about it, at one point in time, there was a craze known as the “pet rock” where kids of all ages would purchase a rock as, well, a pet as the name infers. It just goes to show you how crazy things can be with the expanse of useless crap that what people will buy for one reason or another, even things like this rock that you could go find on the ground for free! Consumers who have their money ready to roll are going to buy just about anything that has a price tag on it and that’s where things get interesting for prospective marketers.
This time, we check out one of those crazy inventions but this one actually seems to have some merit behind it. Just when you thought that the future would be a collection of flying cars, this time, we would check out a situation that shows off a flying lawnmower that goes by the name of the “Flymo.” With the help of a system that helps it to levitate above the ground, the Flymo doesn’t make use of wheels to help you cut the grass but instead, has something a little bit different in mind to get the job done.
What exactly does a levitating lawnmower look like? The video below shows off someone who has procured one of the oddities of the 80s and puts it to use. It seems to be something that is quite functional so it really leads you to wonder why something like this never ended up being improved upon to the point where it’s used today. I, for one, would be incredibly interested to see what a 2017 Flymo looks like!
Between the 80’s and the early 2000’s, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger combined to star in countless action films, filling theaters around the world with unforgettable characters like Rambo, The Terminator and Rocky. With a number of massive blockbusters under their belts, the two built insane fortunes that have allowed them to live the good life despite having reigned in their acting a bit as they’ve grown into more mature roles. That doesn’t mean they’ve outgrown the drive to have cool cars, though, as both big screen stars have insane car collections that are completely befitting an action hero.
The video opens showing us Schwarzenegger’s collection, featuring a Bugatti, a Bentley, and a host of perfectly Terminator-like SUV’s that look right at home hauling Arnold and his trademark jawline around. Between the Mercedes UNIMOG and the fleet of Hummers, Arnold could probably provide the entire vehicle demand for any upcoming action film. He also has several other sports cars to take out for jaunts on sunny afternoons, and of course, in true Arnold style, even owns a tank!
Stallone’s collection is also anchored by a Bugatti, and features such other insane rides as a Rolls Royce Phantom, and a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti. Like Arnold, Stallone also has an affinity for large SUV’s including a couple of Mercedes G-Wagons that are perfect for cruising around town in Hollywood. One thing Sly has that Arnold has passed on is a couple of classic rides, including a ’32 Ford Roadster and a 1968 Corvette.
Jason Ward has dedicated a significant portion of his life to tormenting his wife with his ridiculous Nerf gun collection.
This is one of many videos featuring him ambushing her throughout their home.
He must be doing something right if she’s willing to tolerate this nonsense.
It’s crazy to think that at any given moment, a sinkhole could form and suck just about everything on the surface of the Earth above it into it. Over the years, we have seen lots of houses, cars, and more sucked up into these natural formations that seem to show up out of nowhere and take just about everything with them. One of the most notable automotive occurrences of this was a little bit over three years ago when Bowling Green, Kentucky would see a massive hole open operate underneath of the Corvette Museum and suck a whole collection of cars into the Earth. Whether or not you enjoy General Motors performance for yourself, this is definitely a sad day in the automotive world as lots of history was damaged or destroyed.
Now, the Corvette Museum has undergone some recovery and eventually made this new story a part of the history books but after something like that, You’re really left to wonder exactly what it is that causes such a sinkhole effect in the first place. It seems rather odd that the earth would separate and suck anything that it pleases down at any given moment. There has to be some sort of reasoning inside that phenomenon right? This time, we dive into just that question to try and find some answers as to why this is something that’s even on our radar. Perhaps this video will be able to provide a little bit of insight for you.
With a name like Conor McGregor, you’re bound to polarize a nation. Some are firmly behind the antics pulled by this transcendent mma superstar and others wish he would just shut up and fight. No matter which side of the opinion you lay your hat, it’s most certainly cool to see someone who has hit it big time that shares a passion for cars just like the rest of us gear heads. McGregor most certainly has used a good amount of his amassed wealth to purchase a car or two over time.
This time, we take a dive into the legendary Conor McGregor’s car collection as sourced through the pages of his Instagram account, various other videos, and spottings that might have been found places like television specials to paint the picture of a garage that’s truly amazing. If you were wondering what a collection comprised of endless money looks like, McGregor should do the job of displaying the picture for you.
As is often the case with celebrities, comedian and actor Mike Epps spends a lot of his hear-earned cash on his collection of cars, and he’s got some pretty badass rides that he has collected over the years. This video from GQ takes a good look at Epps’ diverse collection.
The first ride is a great boulevard cruiser: the 1964 Buick Riviera. Sitting perfect and outfitted with a great looking set of wheels, as well as a custom suede interior and a booming sound system. This ride certainly fits Epps, and seems like it may be the ride he jumps in most often. From there, we check out Mike’s 2013 Range Rover, a great looking SUV that packs plenty of power under the hood while moving Mike and company in style.
Mike has one of the more unique roasters we’ve ever seen, a ’32 Ford T-Bucket with big wire wheels, a surprisingly good looking choice for the classic hotrod. The roadster is powered by a healthy sounding small block and has a great Oooga horn to finish off the build. To go along with the T-Bucket, Mike is currently building a wicked 1957 Chevy convertible with the heart of a late-model Camaro engine and suspension. That car will be an awesome ride when it’s all put together.
As you can see, this comedy giant has great taste in rides, instead of sticking with one style, he’s branched out to build an awesome mix of vehicles.
This time, we get that special opportunity to get a little tour of Paul Senior’s selection as he shows off a whole collection of cars, most of which are good old American muscle with some being newer and closer to the factory floor than others that take a wild custom touch and throw it into the mix. It looks like there’s definitely a lot of different tastes to choose from here as Paul takes us through the highlights of some of his favorite machines in the collection.
Follow along with this behind-the-scenes peek down below that allows you to dive headfirst into what the head honcho of OCC keeps in his own personal garages. Is this the kind of vehicular collection that you would expect Paul Senior to be wheeling around in? I know that with such a distinctive on-screen personality that you have to have some sort of expectation as what you would see him behind the wheel or handlebars of when it comes to his time off that he has to be free and wheel!
In this one, we follow along with a YouTube video that was uploaded and has been getting some attention as it showcases a whole collection of classic cars that have met their maker when they got tangled up in what was simply a bad situation. From a Mach 1 Ford Mustang to a first generation Chevrolet Camaro and a whole group of Mopar machines sprinkled in, this one really showcases a variety of awesome old school cars that simply couldn’t make it through what would end up being their final day of being roadworthy machines to admire.
Follow along with the video down below that shows us this whole collection of cars that met their maker way too soon. If we could have it our way, no classic car would ever go down like this, or at all. We just want to have all of them running around the streets to admire for as long as they possibly can. It isn’t every day that you see crashes like this and that’s probably for the better because we would rather not see these cars in this state!
Just when you thought that performance modification ended with cars, trucks, and other vehicles that you find ripping across dry land, along comes a whole collection of boats that show you that the aquatic machines want to play in this world of high-performance as well.
From a boat fitted with a Mercedes-Benz turbodiesel and even a race boat designed around eight 2JZ from a Toyota Supra all the way to the likes of an SR-20 powering a small boat, this playlist of insane engine swaps will have you wanting to go for a ride, guaranteed! Some of these engines, when they put the power down, really manage to rip. It’s really insane to watch these boats make their way around in the water, looking like they’re hooked up with the ultimate in maneuverability as they zip from A to B with confidence and ease.
Follow along down in the video below that will showcase the aforementioned swaps and more as these gearheads get aquatic. There’s nothing like witnessing the best in performance from each and every corner of the high-performance world. Being able to virtually take a seat on these boots is a thrill, to say the least. I would imagine that, if you were able to actually sit on one of these boots at full tilt, it would be quite the adrenaline rush and then some!
