If you’re a fan of Ron Swanson, woodworking, drinking fine liquors, or other robust activities, you’ll probably be a fan of NASCAR. Even if you're not, you should be, and Nick Offerman’s tribute to the sport’s return to NBC Sports on July 4 is about as American as an exploding apple pie on the moon.
Removing the roof from a car—provided it’s a roadster—seems like it should be a pretty simple affair right? Undo a latch or two, lift it off, and go on your way.

Watch the video to see the whole thing broken down step-by-step.
Furious 7 is coming on April 3, 2015, bringing with it Paul Walker’s final role and, judging by the 7-second trailer, a bevy of bonkers stunts.
Toyota is returning to the top tier of rally in 2017, with a WRC entry confirmed today. It will have been 18 years since the company last competed in the series, ending a quarter-century stint that began in 1974.

Perhaps, like the Tesla Model S, it’s the result of rainbows and unicorns.
