We expect 4chan to be a good place to meet bronies and possible sexual deviants, but not a place to get reasonable car-buying recommendations. It turns out their advice is actually not terrible. More »

Some may say that "the best revenge is living well." But, sometimes the best revenge is just straight up revenge. Like when the owner of this Ferrari 360 tried to screw his body shop out of paying for a repair. In return, they crashed his car straight into a wall. Now that's living well. More »
