Motorhome Mashup Part 1: Building a Monster Go-Kart from a 1986 Pace Arrow! [Dirt Every Day Episode 27]

Have you ever dreamed of building a giant go-kart powered by a Chevy 454 big block?

On this episode of Dirt Every Day, Fred enlists the help of the Poly Goats, a local university four wheel drive club, to help destroy a 1986 Pace Arrow motorhome and transform it into a giant go-kart.

Watch the destruction as Fred and the Poly Goats take sawzalls, sledge hammers, and crowbars to this Pace Arrow RV, stripping it down to the bare frame and drivetrain in preparation for building the baddest V8 go-kart of all time!

Super Mario Mercedes-Benz GLA Class Commercial (Japan)

Forget Yoshi! Mario has a new, much sweeter ride and it’s from Germany. Mercedes Benz Japan made the right decision to promote their famous German made cars in Mario’s homeland by merging Mercedes with the classic Super Mario Brothers game. The resulting commercial is just perfect.

2014 Tesla Model S vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550! [Head 2 Head Episode 54]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, the newest luxury heavyweight takes on the reigning champ.

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has ruled the luxury roost since it created the segment decades ago. However, Elon Musk’s revolutionary Tesla Model S has single handedly disrupted the established luxury paradigm and has recently outsold the mighty S-Class. What’s most amazing is that the Model S doesn’t use a drop of gas. The S-Class does, but it rewrites the luxury car playbook in other ways.

So which $125K big lux whip is best? Watch and find out!

Lamborghini Countach: When Outrageous Was Possible

There was a time when an art form known as coachbuilding existed.
Back then, the coachbuilder did not have to answer to a CFO.
Back then, the coach builder did not have to compromise his vision due to government regulations.
Back then, the outrageous was possible.
The Lamborghini Countach could only have been born then.

Live the Super ’70s in a Ferrari 208 GT4

The Ferrari Dino 208 GT4 is a unique car. Overshadowed by its bigger brother, the 308 GT4, the 208 was originally created to skirt under the Italian tax levied on engines above two liters. What the 208 GT4 lacks in displacement it makes up for in sound and style.

For Bradley Price, designer and owner of Autodromo, the opportunity to acquire a practical “super car” of the ’70s with its famous wedge styling was too hard to ignore. After a year of ownership, Bradley can consistently be found escaping the city and revving the sweet-sounding V8 along the roads and hills of New York.

2014 BMW M235i vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG! [Head 2 Head Episode 53]

Fast, small German cars are back with a vengeance on this episode of Head 2 Head!

Join host Jonny Lieberman as he compares and contrasts the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG with the brand new BMW M235i.

Mercedes and BMW have had small car rivalries like this in the past, most notably the Benz’s 190E 2.3-16 versus Bimmer’s E30 M3. Fast forward three decades, and times have changed. Forget natural aspiration, as turbocharging rules the day. The CLA45’s engine is even mounted sideways in a complete departure from Mercedes’ tradition. Regardless of the details, both cars are fast and fun.

So much so that Jonny feels the need to get racecar driver Randy Pobst involved in the decision-making process. In the end, this one proves to be the closest H2H comparison yet. Watch and enjoy!
