However, with a little planning, you can make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck. The cheapest hostels in Sydney are found in the K...

Set a designer free and they’ll make products that they would love to own and use. That seems to be the consensus with our Top Appliance Designs post today. While some of them try to just simply mimic the visual styles of other companies (VW, Dyson), other products try to do more than what they’re expected to do or do something a product hasn’t done before. That’s the essence of innovation, now isn’t it?The products below show how designers are able to hack the frustration of users and consumers...

You would think that dropping an FE engine in a ’67-’72 Ford F-100 wouldn’t be a topic even worth a conversation, as said trucks came equipped with the big V-8 as stock. But if the truck has been modified at any point in time, simply dropping the original motor back in place can become quite a chore. Case in point, our buddy Danny “Paloma” Valenzuela’s ’69 F-100. If you’ve been reading the book lately, you’ll remember that we pulled the 360ci FE engine out of Danny’s truck a few years back and s...
