Guy stops wild police chase by ramming the fleeing crim with his lifted truck. Guess who came off worse?

30th June 2014 | BY Adam

Series of crazy events unfolded in Syracuse, Utah when a 14 year old boy stole his Grandfather’s car and took off on a joy ride around the neighborhood.

Luckily, father and lifted truck owner Bryson Rowley caught wind of the police chase and saw the danger the local kids were being put in and took matters in to his own hands.
As the Hyundai Veloster came screaming round the corner, Rowley was there waiting and ploughed his Dodge Ram head first in to the car (whilst rolling some coal!), bringing the chase to a swift stop.

Hit the jump for the crazy video and shots of the damage to both vehicles…place your bets as to which one came off worse!

Invisibility cloak will be an option on the new Land Rover Discovery Vision

22nd April 2014 | BY Adam

Land Rover have unveiled the new ‘Discovery Vision’ concept and it’s fair to say some of the optional extras are pretty bat-shit-crazy-but-awesome. Most incredibly, it’ll feature a ‘transparent bonnet’ which allows the driver to see exactly what they’re driving over (and perhaps if their oil or air filter needs changing).
