Looks like the aftermarket wheels and exhaust did not help the Maxima driver. Video after the jump!

Watch this baja truck's motor grenade on the track. Lots of mini mushroom clouds as that powerplant comes apart! Video below the jump.

The 1950 Chevrolet 3100 Series pickup is the quintessential American farm truck. However, after Craig Morrison of Art Morrison Enterprises found it languishing in someone’s front yard, this little farm truck went from all-slo, to all-go. The original chassis was removed in favor of a new GT Sport bolt-on unit, as was the original Chevy straight-six engine. In its place sits a new GM Performance Parts crate motor with EFI injection that’s coupled to a Hughes Performance 4L60E automatic transmission. With the original paint and interior still intact, this old truck has been given a new lease on life while still retaining all the heritage that made it great over 60 years ago.

As pink cars go, it doesn't get much more awesome than this "Pepto Pink" Camaro that Bobby Allison drove to the championship in the International Race of Champions Series in 1980. The car has been completely restored since its retirement, and is now for sale on RacingJunk for a paltry $38K. Via BangShift.

Me? I gotta get the Mustang to the track. And I'm gonna sell the Mopar, for real this time. Might be time to sell the old Volvo, too, and try something else. But what to get...? How about you? What are your automotive plans for 2013?

The Hobbit debuted earlier this month, renewing a time-honored Christmas tradition: waiting another year for the next Lord of the Rings movie. I saw An Unexpected Journeytwice and enjoyed it more the second time – when I wasn’t so busy comparing it to the book. Peter Jackson made a few mistakes with his water-in-the-wine adaptation, but this isn’t a movie site.

There was, however, a high-speed chase between wizard Radagast the Brown, on a sled pulled by Rhosgobel rabbits; and some nasty orcs on a pack of Gundabad wargs. And while this scene might have just encapsulated most of the film’s shortcomings, it was pretty good fun.

It got me thinking, which is always pretty dangerous: If they had cars in Middle Earth, what would everybody drive? So I decided to answer a question you would never have asked.

Gandalf – Around, quite literally, for ages, Gandalf the Grey would pick something durable, reliable, and large enough to accommodate his Istari frame. It would also need to have some resistance to fire, as Mithrandir wields the flame of Anor and all. Crown Vics aren’t pretty, but Gandalf is pretty scraggly and old, too. Perhaps he can upgrade to the Towncar variant later on.

A Russian Lada 2105? Rust-free? In Pennsylvania? It all seems a little improbable, and the guys at BringATrailer point out the new-looking paint with righful suspicion. You'll have to judge this one for yourself. See the listing on Craigslist and a ton more pics at Dropbox. Via BaT.

Probably not--this one is most likely a replica. But you never know... Via VWVortex

What do you think, bright idea? Seems like there's all kinds of ways things could go sideways when you lift the wheels that steer off the pavement, especially if they're going to come crashing back down at speed. Someone at StreetsweeperNorthwest snapped the pic on the I5 outside of Tacoma, which is a pretty fast and crowded stretch of freeway.
