Ever wonder what intelligent life will think when they find your cars a millenium or three after your death? Me neither. Hooniverse figures the explanation for the shot below is Doc Brown's little-publicized journey to the Precambrian era.

Hyundai has joined forces with ARK to build a burly Veloster for SEMA. A custom twin-scroll turbo bumps the Veloster's modest 138 hp four banger up to 210 hp. More pics and the press release detailing all the mods after the jump!

Check out this slick video of a whole fleet of race-prepped Scion tearing up the track at Willow Springs. Looks like fun!

Professional Stunt Man James Smith and his friend Sam Young travel the country to put on these "home grown" auto thrill shows like the originators of stunt driving did back in the 50's and 60's. So grab a beverage and come along for the ride as we meet James, Sam and some great local people and see what it takes to put on a grassroots auto thrill show. See the video below the jump!

Ford Motor Company has unveiled the details on the best-selling half ton truck in the world, with the 2012 Ford F150 getting a handful of new features to make the truck more driver friendly, while a new FX package adds great looks. Also, a new fuel tank offers range like the world has never seen from a half ton pickup.

The biggest news for the 2012 Ford F150 is the new FX appearance package (shown below), offered in both FX2 and FX4 (rear wheel and four wheel drive) configurations. The FX package for 2012 begins with flat black stripes along the side complemented by the unique blacked out headlights, taillights and grille with badges all around featuring red lettering. The exterior is finished off by a set of flat black 20” aluminum wheels and a thick 6-spoke formation.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could buy a performance car that got 500 miles to a tank of fuel, or an SUV that could go for 700? Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one that wishes every car made came with a bigger fuel tank. Right now the average size of a tank for a mid-sized to large car is 16-19 gallons. Automakers choose these sizes because their goal is for you (the consumer) to get about 300 miles in combined driving out of a fill-up. That means that whether you drive a Prius or a Ferrari, you’re still going to the pumps after about 5 hours of driving. Sure, some cars (diesels especially) will pull more, but for the majority of us that means hitting the pumps at least once a week. Now don’t get me wrong, I understand automakers are restricted by space, safety regulations and performance, but wouldn’t it be great to only have to fill up once a month? Who knows, maybe I’m going about it all wrong and should simply buy a clean diesel. The fact of the matter is though, I want to know how I can get my performance and range in one happy little package.

This year's show is just around the corner, and SEMA is running a last-minute contest to round up enthusiast cars to populate parts manufacturers' booths! It's open to current-generation cars only, but all you have to do is make a brief walkaround video describing your ride and showcasing the mods you've made to it (and in particular, the brands of aftermarket parts you used). You get a $50 gas card, two nights' hotel in Vegas, two passes to the insiders-only SEMA show, and a chance to park your car on the show floor as a feature vehicle. Full rules and entry form here, and you can click the following links to check out entrants in Hottest Car, Hottest Truck, Hottest Sport Compact, and Hottest SUV/4x4. There doesn't really seem to be a lot of contenders yet with only a few days to go (contest closes October 2), so if you could get it together to make a video, it could very well be a shoo-in. Spread the word, and good luck!

Not that this is all that cool, but after about 10 minutes on Photoshop this morning, this lil' EV from Citroen Peugot (called the VELV) could make a snappy little ride. It was designed for Corprate Fleets and Rental companies, but could sell to individuals if they spent a little time to make them cooler. The design isn't bad compared to some EVs, but the addition of minor aesthetics does a lot as people make buying desicisons based on the smallest things. Put together by a bunch of French doods, the VELV hits a top speed of 68 mph and can travel about 62 miles on a single charge. Source: WorldCarFans
