For those of you who can't get enough of the FR-S/BRZ, my buddy Antonio Alvendia has a great writeup over at Motormavens, which includes bunch of his typically top-notch photography. Check it out!

It's hard to tell who has poorer judgment: the total water-on-the-brain blackout drunk driver swerving all over this two-lane highway, or the chattering idiots tailing him at close enough range that they'd almost inevitably be caught up in the carnage when said drunk gets slammed back by the head-on wreck that he comes very close to causing multiple times. Well, the drunk probably. But still! Fortunately for all involved, the incident ends a lot less badly than it could have. Video below the jump!

Usually in this kind of situation, it's the driver who is presumed intoxicated. Nice how a dash cam clears things up, though it looks like he may be up for vehicular assault charges. What would you have done? Video after the jump!

It was 1976 when the last Dodge Dart rolled off the assembly line. It was the car for the masses and if you grew up between 1970 and 1980 then it’s almost guaranteed that you knew someone who owned one. Back then the Dart was an economy car, and even though they were a bit on the ugly side that didn’t stop Dodge from selling a boatload of them. Now it’s 2012 and the Dart is back as a brand new 2013 model in the hopes of rekindling some of that old spark. It’s based on the Alfa Romeo Giulietta and comes equipped with the same 1.4-liter Fiat 500 Abarth. So does this mean the Dart is a sporty American car with Italian DNA or simply a pile of pasta with ketchup on top? Click through to the video to find out.

This weekend I got a chance to ride in a 2011 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, and I have to say I'm impressed. Around my neighborhood, I am a well-known Prius hater, because of what they do to bikers (flatten them) and because of the vibe that sometimes surrounds the owners, which appears to be an expression of environmentalist nirvana. But this weekend my view of hybrids changed. I liked the Highlander not from a standpoint of mph through the slalom, not 0-60, not even overall looks, but instead passenger comfort.

Remember being a kid and day dreaming about how awesome it would be to have a tv in the carduring those long boring drives? I sure do. I remember first learning about power converters and how genius I felt when I hauled my little ten inch tv and playstation out to our Suburban and hooked them up to keep my brothers and I company during the long yearly trip from Southern Utah to Northern Utah. We played Madden the entire time and before we knew it we were at Grandma and Grandpa's. We might not live in a world of flying cars and robot servants yet but things have definitely changed in the last 15 years. Now most people haulers, whether it be a van or an SUV, come stock with entertainment systems that include T.V.'s, DVD players, aux hookups for your xbox, etc. But some companies don't believe in just satisifying their customers, they'd rather blow their minds.

Sod is smug and deserves every last bit of punishment it can get. There it sits just thrown into a life of pampered watering, fresh fertilizer, and an army of "no tresspassing" soldiers ready to defend. Why is sod so lucky to enjoy such a luxurious lifestyle? We need to keep sod in check or it is going to think it can get away with anything. Kentucky Bluegrass, Bermuda, and even Zoysia are all in on it and the rumor on the web is that they're conspiring a new world order. Our only choice is to fight. Weapon of choice? 400 horsepower STi swapped 20G Subaru Impreza WRX!

As godawful TV tribute cars go, it doesn't get much worse than this recreation of the original GTO-based Monkeemobile. Though the Monkeemobile admittedly wasn't the worst thing about the made-for-TV bubblegum band, the real crime here is that a salvageable 4-speed convertible was sacrificed to build this replica. And yes, the fender headers and gold-plated blower are fake. On eBay now!

Jeez, remember when Scion was all the rage? Well guess what? The brand is struggling. The iconic xB is getting the axe next year--they only sold 17,000 in 2011. The xD is going away, too. Can the FR-S save the day? Via Autoblog
