  • 1945 Volkswagen Studebaker Wiesel

    "We call it the tank," the ad proclaims, and if ever there was an ugly relic that best summed up the military-industrial history of two countries, it's this one. According to the sellers out of Littlerock, California, this here's a 1945 Studebaker Wiesel. As far as we can tell, it's a Robot Chicken-style Frostyclaus mashup of a WWII-era tank and a VW Microbus. The tank half comes to you via your grandparents' economic sacrifice; the VW half, we bet, came from some pothead in Northern California who had no idea his precious would end up in camo drag, working for The Man. Studebaker, of course...

  • Toyota exec says FT-HS could be 'Supra of the future'

    Toyota’s FT-HS hybrid sports car concept has long been rumoured to be the precursor to the next-generation Mark V Supra but until now we’ve never had any official confirmation or even a suggestion that the two cars are in fact related. Now, on the eve of the Melbourne Motor Show, where the FT-HS will be on display, Toyota exec Peter Evans hinted at the possibility of the FT-HS becoming the Supra. Speaking at the Australian launch of the car, Evans described the FT-HS as a “'Prius on steroids.” He then added that “it could be a vision for a Toyota Supra of the...
