  • Though not exactly a dash cam video, this particular hit-and-run is a perfect example of why one can be important, or at least capture some interesting footage (and thankfully he did so in landscape mode). In today's example, a driver who decided to flee after rear-ending another car ends up causing another accident when she runs a red light.In this familiar scenario, Alan Wang happened to be driving when he came across a woman in a black Acura TSX. The car had pretty severe front end damage and its airbags freshly deployed, but was still driving down the road. It was pretty clear to him that the woman had fled an accident, so he began to film the details of the events on his phone. Shortly after, an Audi Q5 passed by the camera car showing damage to its rear bumper and suggesting that it had been the victim in a rear-end collision with the Acura.The driver of Acura then comes to a stop in the center of an intersection and puts her car in reverse, but doesn't move. Wang dec..

  • I have been barraged with messages asking for an explanation as to why an American nuclear submarine would be flying a big black pirate flag as it pulled into its home port. The black flag with a skull embossed on it is commonly known as the Jolly Roger. It has been made famous by countless stories of swashbuckling pirates who used it to strike fear in the hearts of sailors aboard ships that were about to be commandeer. The Jolly Roger plays to an even greater symbology in which a monotoned skull and crossbones serves as a warning for impending danger and death. But when it comes to America's most capable and versatile nuclear submarine—a vessel used for espionage and spying of the grandest order—the Jolly Roger holds a very different meaning.On September 11th, 2017 the Navy released images of the USS Jimmy Carter (SSN-23)—the Navy's one-off, heavily modified Seawolf class nuclear fast attack submarine—as it made its way through the Hood Canal on its way back to its home por..

  • Dollar Tumbles while Euro Firms as Storms Fuel Worry in U.S. Low expectations for another U.S. Federal Reserve interest rate increase in 2017 helped pull down the dollar to its weakest in over 2-½ years on Friday while keeping gold near a one-year peak. According to economists, hurricane Harvey could weigh on U.S. economic growth in the third quarter. The euro notched multi-year in the aftermath of a European Central Bank meeting. Persistently weak inflation continues to add pressure on Fed policymakers. Recently, New York Fed President William Dudley did not reiterate that he expects to hike rates once more this year. Another factor that weighed on the dollar and also reduces the likelihood of another rate increase was the agreement in Congress to push U.S. debt ceiling talks to December, which corresponds with the Fed's policy meeting. The Japanese yen firmed 0.61 percent against the greenback at 107.80 a dollar, while the euro climbed 0.12 percent to $1.2036. The euro&..

  • In production since 2009, the Nissan 370Z is one of the oldest sports cars on the market. Few cars are built on a platform as dated as the current Z's. In fact, the only two older platforms we can think of are the Chrysler LX-based Dodge Charger, which traces its roots back to 1998, and Nissan's other sporty offering, the GT-R, which predates the 370Z by two years. Even the preceding 350Z's stay on the market lasted only seven years, and now at eight years old, the 370Z is on track to record its poorest sales since launch in 2009, worse even than the current low set by 2016.Rumors of the next Z car, dubbed "390Z" by some, circulated in January after Car and Driver reported the new Z would debut at this year's Tokyo Motor Show, maybe alongside Mazda's RX-9, but former Nissan Australia managing director Richard Emery swatted these rumors down this past Monday.“Even we don’t know,” said Emery to Motoring, “and we would know if there was something pending, so the..

  • This happens so often that you might read this thinking the whole article was copied and pasted from something that just happened a few weeks ago. However, this is a brand new instance of another young man getting drunk and crashing a rented Lamborghini in a failed attempt to show off, according to the Daily Mail. Rental Lamborghini crashes are becoming as common as Mustang wrecks at Cars and Coffee events.This time it happened in Jinhua City, in the Zhejiang province of China. The victim: a bright green Lamborghini Gallardo. It was being driven by a 22-year-old gentleman chasing a 19-year-old woman he met at a bar, who reportedly rejected his advances. Other than his pride, the driver was reportedly unharmed.After he swerved out of control and crashed into a tree attempting to show off, the girl he was chasing did what any reasonable young woman would do: Made a video recording his failure and mocked him.However, the joke was on her, because police used that video as evidence to ..

  • The craziest bikes Kawasaki has ever built are now entering the 2018 model year. Starting September 1st and going through November 30th (or until supply runs out), you can order your very own 2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 or H2 Carbon street bike or the bonkers track-only H2R.For those unaware of the insanity of the Kawasaki H2, it’s the first four-stroke, supercharged motorcycle from a major bike manufacturer. Basically, the H2 is the Hellcat and the H2R is the Demon of the motorcycle world. The H2 Carbon is a version of the street-legal H2 with—you guessed it—more carbon fiber along with special paint. Kawasaki accurately markets these rockets as being “Built Beyond Belief.”They all share a 998cc DOHC liquid-cooled inline-four engine with four valves per cylinder. The star of the show is the variable-speed centrifugal supercharger. The H2R cranks out 310 horsepower or 326 hp when equipped with ram air. The street-legal H2 makes significantly less power (but still a lot) at 200 hp or 210 h..

  • WASHINGTON -- Cargo terminals at Port Houston, the largest import/export gateway for vehicles on the Texas Gulf coast, opened for business Friday after the U.S. Coast Guard gave the go-ahead for ships to navigate the Houston Ship Channel. Port Houston is a growing terminus for auto imports, handling 85,499 vehicles shipped by water in 2016. Volkswagen operates a major processing center on port property that delivers more than 120,000 vehicles to dealers in Texas and nearby states, but much of its volume includes vehicles produced in Mexico and delivered to the port by rail. Meanwhile, railroads continue to face operational challenges in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Repair crews for all three Class I railroads are fixing tracks and signals, and inspecting bridges so trains can run in all areas. Freight railroads have been rerouting trains in some cases to keep customers' shipments moving. Kansas City Southern's network remains shutdown between Laredo, on the Mexican ..
