Woman falls from car on South Korean highway and walks away
I’ve watched this astonishing clip several times and I still can’t quite comprehend exactly what is going on here. Was this woman pushed out of a moving vehicle or did she fall? If she fell, how exactly does someone fall out of a car? Aren’t the doors (and seatbelts for that matter) there to prevent you from accidentally falling out? Once she falls out, she then somehow manages to avoid being hit by an oncoming minivan although she is directly in its path. Under normal circumstances this kind of incident would end with serious injuries or death. But this woman, aside from being understandably shocked and disoriented, appears to be okay. There is no information available yet regarding this video, at least not from any reliable sources, so for now it remains a mystery. But one thing is for sure, this woman must have learned her stop, drop and roll lessons because she not only survived but was able to get up and walk away!

Teaser: 2013 Porsche 911 C4S
I am sad today. I have spent the last week putting around in a 2013 Porsche 911 C4S. It was clad in white, just as Dr. Porsche would have wanted. It had the simply spectacular 7 speed manual transmission, just as I would want. So why am I sad? Well, it had to go back to Porsche today. At least I have some video to share, shot with the new GoPro Hero3 that I bought a couple of weeks ago. I have a full review to share soon, but for now check out the glorious sound that comes from the quad pipes of the new 911.
Motor Trend tests the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51
Even as car magazines struggle to stay afloat, they still have a certain amount of pull with auto manufacturers. That means that while many auto journos were able to drive the new C7 Corvette earlier this week, the guys at Motor Trend already had spent some testing time in the beast. Not that I’m complaining, because the polished end result shows off the Stingray grandly. Like the 911 above and yet nothing at all like the 911 above, the Stingray sounds absolutely killer.
Matt Farah buys a barn find Delorean
I know I griped a little the other day that I have never had the pleasure of stumbling over a barn find car of my own. I guess having a friend, like Matt Farah from The Smoking Tire, score one of his own, is pretty close to finding my own. That being said, Farah didn’t exactly stumble across his Delorean dream car. Instead, he enlisted the help of the guys at DMC (the company that bears the name of the car) to help track one down. Semantics I know, but not quite as romantic as finding it yourself. Still, Farah has his ride to the future and I still don’t.
Corvette Stingray racing in 1959
Corvette lovers and those who are in to racing history will get a kick of this early racing video set to a jazzy soundtrack. The year is 1959 and General Motors is officially out of racing. Designer Bill Mitchell bought Zora Duntov’s Sebring SS test mule and added a new body. Dick Thompson was the driver and the car won the 1960 SCCA C-Production championship. This was racing skunkworks type of activity at its best!
