Click Mechanic wanted to show auto enthusiasts what some unlikely car mashups would look like, and many of them are downright bizarre to say the least. For example, the image above shows a Bugatti Chiron combined with a Volkswagen Beetle. "When you see a Bugatti Chiron, the brand’s new flagship with a 1500-horsepower quad-turbocharged engine, a classic Volkswagen Beetle is not the first car that comes to mind. But since we’re thinking outside the box, of course we mashed them up! Instead of the current trend of ever-lighter cars, our car has heavy chrome bumpers and alloy wheels. It takes the fenders and the greenhouse from a classic Beetle, but the rest is Chiron: especially the ultra-modern LED-headlights, which create nice contrast," according to CM. continue reading for more.

Michael Jackson Guardians of the Galaxy


Marvel fans rejoice! If you've always thought the 80s Michael Jackson (i.e. Captain EO era) would be perfect as Starlord in Guardians of the Galaxy, this poster should do the trick. Even though Marvel has had the license for many of these characters, like Iron Man, Daredevil, Avengers, etc., they really didn't have the budget necessary to create blockbuster movies, that is until...Disney bought them out. Continue reading to see seven more Marvel movies reimagined in different eras, and the stars who would play the leads.

Christmas is just around the corner, and many have not yet started on their decorations. If you fall under that category, here are a few clever, yet lazy, ideas that may spark something.

Disney illustrator Brian Kesinger has spent over 16-years at the company, but what has really made him stand out is his work outside of the studio. Simply put, he has combined the worlds of Star Wars and Calvin & Hobbes into one. "Being a kid in the '80s I was raised on a steady diet of Disney, Star Wars, and comic books, so being able to work on so many amazing films and projects has really been a dream come true. I'm not the first to mash-up Calvin & Hobbes with pop culture," the artist who has worked on Wreck-It Ralph, Tangled, and Tarzan said. "[but] I think the difference here is that I went a little deeper with the idea. Once I really made the comparison that Kylo Ren was probably a difficult child much like Calvin, it really resonated with people. The metaphor was solidified when I made Darth Vader Kylo's imaginary friend," said Kesinger. Continue reading for more.
