Today's pic comes from Ralph's Honda S2000 ride page! This car was featured on the cover of Super Street Magazine back in December 2008.

The first production Camaro convertibles started rolling down the line at GM's Oshawa plant today. The new drop-top will start at $30K, and that's for the base with the V6. The SS with the V8 will set you back at least $37,500 though, or $40,500 if you want the one with the 426 hp LS3. A convertible Camaro will also be the official pace car for the Indy 500 this year. I don't know about you guys, but I feel like I'm kind of over the Camaro. Don't get me wrong, it's a cool car and everything, and the SS with the manual 6-speed sure was fun to drive. But for me, the novelty of the cartoony Camaro wore off faster than that of either the Challenger or the Mustang. Maybe it's because the Camaro was a bit of a Johnny-come-lately, maybe it's because everyone and their dog started building custom convertible Camaros the moment the car was available, but for whatever reason, the latest iteration of the Camaro feels a bit underwhelming. How about you: does the Camaro still do it for you?

'Cause that's what Continental Tires seems to be concluding with their recent study, which indicates that players of racing video games are significantly more likely to be stopped by the police, take risks and wreck their cars. I guess my question is this: is it the fault of video games, or is it simply that the kind of folks who like to play video games are also more likely to engage in reckless driving? As you might imagine, IGN thinks the whole thing is silly. Read all the stats from the study at Jalopnik and then tell us what you think!

In what is turning out to be the most expensive parking job ever, a fresh Bugatti Veyron was curbed during a parking fail! The guy driving the Veyron doesn't even own the car, and is suspected to be a member of the owner's security. He can't start it, he can't drive it, what is he doing in the god-like automobile? Watch the video, then read more about the parking fail at Tampa Sports Car Examiner!

As reported by Motor Trend, Jag is working on a new sports car for 2013 to compete with the Boxster/Cayman. The car will be front-engine, rear-drive featuring either V-6 or turbo four power. The four cylinder is likely to be derived from the current version of the Ford Ecoboost, used in the Land Rover Evoque, and will be installed longitudinally. The V-6 will inherit features from current direct-injected V8 with possible capacity up to 3.7 liters. It will come as coupe or convertible and will use design hints from C-X75 concept. The whole thing will be made from aluminum, a technology favored by Jaguar for several years now. It allows cost efficiency and 300 pounds weight savings when compared to standard production.

Are you a fan or does the design make you think of a Dustbuster on wheels?

Russians… I love those goofy bastards. First they surprise us with Sputnik and now this. Apparently this is some sort of top secret Russian coal powered motorcycle that is capable of speeds that are well into the double digits. Built on a three-wheeled frameless platform and utilizing stealth control technology, it’s obvious why it’s been kept under wraps for so long. Hell, with the speed it produces it almost feels like it creates a constant state of déjà vu for all those around it. Weird right? Could it be that it warps time? Whatever the case I’m just glad to see that Russia is still putting all their resources into their military and making advancements in new technologies. Watch the video after the jump and check out more funny videos at RideLust.

Love the look of this thing. The color scheme continues inside and under the hood. Wheels are custom painted VOLK Racing CE28N and the motor is pushing 500 hp on E85 fuel thanks to the Garrett T04Z turbo and a host of other nifty tweaks. More pics and details at Speedhunters

By now, we've all seen the YouTube videos and thousands of photos of Nissan's halo car, the GT-R. Defeating a Bentley Coupe Super Sport and a Ford Mustang Super Snake, the GT-R has proved it's one hell of a vehicle. When you look at it, it's way cheaper than its classmates, yet it's not the most attractive supercar and doesn't pack an engine like its fellow exotics. Almost an average Joe when you line it up next to the Lambos and Ferrais. But of course, that kind of comparo only happens in internet land and the pages of the car mags. In reality, the GT-R is an eyecatcher and you'll be sure to beat the crap out of any fool pushing a Honda Civic that decides to look at you wrong at the light.

Many people in today's economy have resorted to picking up gas-sipping beaters from Craigslist, lemon lots, and even that sweet old lady down the street. But there's one thing that most econo-beaters have in common: they're ugly. Dented, tore up, and in many cases rusting away to nothing. So what can you do if you want your ride to look good and you've only got 50 bucks in your pocket?
