Subtly Spectacular 1963 Split-Window Corvette

The 1963 model year saw the very first complete remodel of America’s most iconic sports car: the Corvette. The C2, as us Corvette enthusiasts like to refer to it, was a complete overhaul and a huge step forward in just about every way for this Chevrolet model, but there was one aspect of the new Vette that wasn’t met with open arms: the rear window. It sounds crazy now, but back in the ’60s and ’70s, these things routinely got hacked up with drivetrain swaps and the removal of that “eyesore” of ...

Tesla will soon build its electric cars in China

Telsa has confirmed its plans to build a manufacturing plant for its electric vehicles in Shanghai, so as to better serve the Chinese automotive market. As The Wall Street Journal notes, the move will help the Elon Musk-fronted company cut production costs and won’t need to form a joint venture firm with a local business – but it’ll likely still have to cough up a 25 percent import tariff on the cars it produces and sells there. Regardless, that’s a huge win for Tesla, as China is poised to put ...

BREAKING RAD. BCKustom’s ‘Bone Destroyer’ Honda XL 600R Tracker

I tried flat tracking a few months ago. I blitzed the first-timer’s field until someone pointed out that I was riding a bike with a front brake and using it. So I switched to the rear brake, went for broke on the last lap and promptly ate more dirt than a stoned earthworm with poor self-control. The bike was cactus and my left knee has only just recovered. The lesson was simple; learning to go fast on dirt can be a painful exercise.The post BREAKING RAD.
