Upside Down Truck

Mechanic and Kathy's Collision owner Rick Sullivan stumbled upon his latest project in the most unexpected way. He received a call last winter to transport an overturned Ford Ranger to his shop, but when he saw the vehicle with its roof and four wheels sticking up in the air, a big idea came to him. Simply put, it's a 1991 Ford Ranger pickup truck with an upside down 1995 F-150 placed over the top, complete with spinning tires. After spending 6-months and $6,000, the vehicle you see above became a reality. It recently won the WTF award and the Innovation Award at the Car Craft Street Machine Nationals in Du Quoin, Illinois.

Comic Sans Typewriter

Microsoft designer Vincent Connare began work on Comic Sans in October 1994. He completed the face too late for inclusion in MS Bob, but the programmers of Microsoft 3D Movie Maker, which also used cartoon guides and speech bubbles, began to use it. The typeface later shipped with the Windows 95 Plus! Pack, and became a standard font for the OEM version of Windows 95. Now, Pittsburgh-based artist Jesse England has created Sincerity Machine, a typewriter that uses this font exclusively.

Custom DeLorean

The DeLorean DMC-12 was manufactured by John DeLorean's DeLorean Motor Company for the American market in 1981-82. Featuring gull-wing doors with a fiberglass "underbody", to which non-structural brushed stainless steel panels are affixed, the car became iconic for its appearance as a modified time machine in the Back to the Future film trilogy. The company went into liquidation as the US car market went through its largest slump since the 1930s. In 2007, about 6,500 DeLorean Motor cars were believed to still exist. However, there are still some diehard enthusiasts who go to great lengths to customize their vehicles, as you can see above. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
