The Dodge Viper Is the Last Great American Car

From Road & Track This is the way the Viper’s world could end: not with the bang of obsolescence or defeat at the hands of its megabuck Eurotrash competitors, but with the whimper of a union contract that just happens to close one small-scale manufacturing facility. The supposed end of the Conner Avenue plant in 2017 would also be the end of the Viper. There’s just no case to be made for restarting production somewhere else. It might impact FCA’s ability to turn out more crossovers or something like that. (Note: This…

The death of the internal combustion engine

By Theeconomist “HUMAN inventiveness…has still not found a mechanical process to replace horses as the propulsion for vehicles,” lamented Le Petit Journal, a French newspaper, in December 1893. Its answer was to organise the Paris-Rouen race for horseless carriages, held the following July. The 102 entrants included vehicles powered by steam, petrol, electricity, compressed air and hydraulics. Only 21 qualified for the 126km (78-mile) race, which attracted huge crowds. The clear winner was the internal combustion engine. Over the next century it would go on to power industry and change the…

The 500-hp Corvette That Chevrolet Didn’t Talk About

Rarely does a manufacturer make a point to not advertise one of its products, particularly one that is its peak performance offering. An exception to the rule was this 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray L88. And that intentionally low profile when new is part of what makes this car so valuable today. The brainchild of Zora Arkus-Duntov, director of GM’s performance division, the 1967 L88 Corvette was powered by a highly modified version of Chevy’s 427-cubic-inch V-8. Although the factory-claimed horsepower was 435, real power output was likely somewhere between 540 and…

Auto Mechanics Hilariously Recreate Renaissance Paintings

US-based photographer Freddy Fabris had always wanted to pay homage to the Renaissance masters with his photos in some way, but he wasn’t sure how until he stumbled upon an auto-mechanic shop in the Midwest. This led to a brilliant series of portraits with auto mechanics reenacting famous Renaissance paintings. “Translating painting into photography was a challenge I looked forward to,” Fabris wrote on Huffpost. “I wanted to respect the look and feel of the originals, but needed to come up with a conceptual twist that would create a new…

The creator of “Carhenge,” the Stonehenge of Nebraska, built it in honor of his father

The fame of Stonehenge, the giant ring of standing stones as well as the mystery surrounding this prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England, located two miles west of Amesbury and eight miles north of Salisbury, has led to numerous efforts at re-creating it. There are dozens of replicas throughout the world made out of a variety of materials. Some have been meticulously constructed as astronomically aligned models, some as socioeconomic statements, while others are examples of artistic expression at its best. No matter what their purpose might be, they mostly stand as tourist magnets, as…

6 things you probably didn’t know about the Dodge Viper

By FoxNews The Dodge Viper will end production this month after a 25-year run. A little sad, right? Before you start the water works, remember that the Chevy Camaro went out of production in 2002 with no plans for revival, yet Chevy brought the pony car back in 2010. The same could happen to the Viper. We recently had a chance to be a fly on the wall as the people responsible for the V-10 sports car looked back on the Viper’s history. Their war stories gave us new respect for…
