  • The car repossession business is a notoriously risky one, and there's no better evidence than this shocking video out of Compton, California showing a man armed with a crowbar riding on the back of a tow truck and attempting to free his Nissan Altima as the panicked driver dragged the car through city streets.Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department investigators tell NBC Los Angeles the repo man was in the process of collecting the street-parked Altima over non-payment on Monday morning when the owner came out of a nearby residence and confronted him. He tried to quickly hook up the car and escape, but the owner jumped on the back of the truck as he drove away.In his haste, he also apparently neglected to take the front-wheel-drive Altima out of Park, which is likely the reason for the front tires blowing and the resulting metal-on-asphalt fireworks. Of course, it's also a cardinal rule of towing to keep the drive wheels off the ground with an automatic transmission—bu..

  • Are you an enthusiast who wants to wrench on cars you can't afford? Are you someone who knows nothing and wants to learn the basics? Or maybe you're a full-time mechanic who can't get enough time in the bay, and loves to take work home? Well, have we found the game for you. Meet Wrench.Wrench is a project in development by Digital Mistake, a studio ran by Alec Moody, who The Drive had the pleasure of chatting with. Working as a video game artist since 2002, Moody had taken on the task of mechanical modeling early on in his career. Being an avid gearhead, he saw an opportunity to combine his work with his passion, and that's where Wrench was born. The hardest task to learn was the actual programming behind the scenes. "Building game systems like this involved a lot of learning and stubbornly working through problems that seem impossible", said Moody. "Learning something new can be a slog, after you solve a problem it often times seems obvious and trivial. It is ver..
