Humans and Motorized Vehicles Around The Globe
For the past several months I've really been enjoying the website "The Truth about Cars."
It is unlike any other car-journalism I've encountered in its attitude and approach, making mainstream auto-writers look like the mouth-breathing, short-bus riding, never-heard-of-cynicism losers you might have always suspected them to be.
And don't get me started on the The Boston Globes long time car guy "Royal Turd (Ford)" who finds glove-box dimensions and whether his retarded-sea-cow wife likes the color more salient to a car review than purchase price or driving impressions. This site is the antidote to all that.
Recently TTAC has added comments-functionality to its posts, and it is from a nice ranting discussion on hybrids that the link I'm about to drop on ye comes from.
Essentially, one of the main dudes (Jeremy Clarkson) on the UK's "5th Gear" car-television show set out to travel the world and see how different cultures interact with motorized vehicles, resulting in a combination of sociology and vroom vroom. Everywhere from Iceland to Cuba to Vietnam. Fabulous. Its called MotoWorld.
Here is a link to all the episodes in google video format. Better click quick before they get taken down.
