      Not production and not a car, but Moto Guzzi made a 500cc V8 back in the '50s.

      My go-to hot weather helmet is the Nolan N-43 "Air". It's the only lid I've ever worn where you can actually feel airflow over your scalp. And it's got a pocket for their N-COM bluetooth system.

      Yeah, you're probably preaching to the choir, but hopefully some new riders will read and heed this advice.

      One thing I've always found was odd, though, is that it's illegal to wear earplugs in...

      Not sure if this counts exactly, since in the end, they decided to just re-badge the 300C but:

      If you're looking at an enthusiast car, I've never had a problem asking a salesman where to find a couple of corners and opening it up a little. In fact, it's often encouraged if they think it'll...

      From what I understand, the -8 was built primarily for the air freight companies. Boeing probably isn't pushing the passenger version too hard since they (correctly, in my opinion) ceded the...

      It's one of those right-wing dog whistles. I can't explain it, but I work with folks who will instantly froth at the mouth at the mere mention of a union, Obama, or Benghazi.

      Personally, I...

      I was that way, too, until I took it out for a few autocrosses. The tail will step out easily enough, but only at speeds that would be insane on the street. And when it does start to oversteer,...

      I didn't mean that the C6 can't corner. It's by far the fastest car out of any listed so far. And I may be a little off base in that I've only driven a C5, but from what I understand, there wasn't...

      The GTO is a nice car, but it's never going to come close to providing the experience of a pure sports car. So, I'd vote for the Vette. However, there are plenty of nice cars you could also...

      Watch the right rear on the replay.

      Ah. I see. Well, then, the only answer is that he gets his own ride, or motorcycling is just something you do on your own. Always good to keep independent interests, you know?

      In this instance, I'd agree with you since the trucker instigated the situation and then continued to be a dick after the cop apologized to him (how often does that happen?).

      But most of these...

      I guess it depends on how you're counting. Is this a 3 spoke wheel, or 12?

      And there are plenty of 5 spoke wheels out there for boats. I suppose you could...

      I was thinking the same thing. The best thing about having a bike in the city is that you can park damn near anywhere. That becomes much less of an option if you have a hack.

      Not really a new jet, but rather a set of "bolt-on" options being offered to foreign customers. Rumor has it that all of these upgrades are desired by the US Navy, but they're waiting for someone...

      The girder setup is much older than the Hossack forks on the newer BMWs. The difference is in the steering. The Hossack suspension is basically a double wishbone with the upright turned 90 degrees:...

      I've been in the same boat and decided that the only way to go is two different cars. Started off with an E46 M3, and although it was about as good as it gets for a sport sedan, it's still a...

      It would be an interesting experiment. However, for a pickup cab, a sharp lip to actually encourage separation might work better. There's no possible way to keep the flow attached, so sometimes the...

      Actually, they don't smooth out the flow at all. Rather the opposite. As the name suggests, they generate a vortex that helps keep the airflow attached where it would normally separate. The idea...
