After seeing so many wacky exterior mods, it’s about time we switch it up and show you one of the silliest car interiors ever. All we know is that it belongs to a Chevy and that it’s geared up for war. Seriously now, we don’t even know where to begin with this one. For starters, why have two separate buttons for firing your imaginary missiles? Is your imaginary war truck equipped with multiple types of imaginary missiles? If so, we assume the big red button would release the main payload, whereas the smaller button to the left of the steering wheel unleashes your typical surface-to-air missiles, or whatever. Of course, that’s not all, because just under that specific button is another identical one that’s supposed to “fire lasers.” As for what’s blocking out the gauge cluster, it looks like some type of missile guidance screen, which is there probably so that you know how to turn the steering wheel when you’re ready to fire. … [Read more...] about Modded Chevy Interior Goes To War With Common Sense

Billy Caldwell, 12, was admitted to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London on Friday after his seizures intensified. Speaking outside the hospital on Saturday, his mother Charlotte said: "Unfortunately, Billy had two more seizures overnight which has pushed him more into a crisis situation." She added: "The Home Office, myself and my team have been working extremely hard throughout the night to make this happen, which is truly amazing, but there can only be one conclusion here: that my beautiful sweet little boy, who has a life-threatening form of epilepsy and one seizure can kill him, he needs his medicine back today."

Most drivers try to refrain from texting and driving, but it’s easy to yield to the temptation of an incoming text. While it may seem harmless to glance at your phone just long enough to scan a message, it’s not. Texting and driving statistics reveal reading one text message takes your eyes off the road for 4.6 seconds. That might not seem like a long time, but if you’re traveling 55 mph you can cover the length of a football field in 4.6 seconds. That’s a long distance to travel with your attention diverted.

The low key transaction is quite different from the buyer-seller experience people encounter when at a car dealership.

When Ford launched the Transit Connect in North America in 2009, it was little more than a budget-friendly hauler for small business owners who needed a small van to help with their blossoming flower-delivery service. By the second generation, it received new engine options and became decidedly more passenger friendly, but remained light on features and refinement.
