I like it!
With a matte black paint job and a 6.2-liter LS3 V8, this customized Chevy Caprice walks the line between menace and sleeper.

A ride in a multi-million pound Jaguar D-Type... With Sir Jackie Stewart!

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/cars/article-3743227/A-ride-multi-million-pound-Jaguar-D-Type.html
A sister car to this one runner-up in the 1957 24 Hours of Le Mans is up for auction in America this weekend with an estimation of $25million. That makes this a very expensive flying lap.

Haven't tried Pieology. Pie5 is decent, and Uncle Maddio's (by the guy who founded Moe's - visit one and note the similarities) is decent as well. Neither are as good as my two local go-to places for pizza.
Why is America's favorite and most ubiquitous food so hard to get right? Behind the race to turn pizza into the next fast-casual success story.

These were a thing at one time...
In the 1930s, autogyros were used as a low-speed alternative to airplanes.

Interesting... From the linked article:

“Even as batteries improve, there will continue to be a small number of high-energy days that exceed the range provided by electric vehicles. For these days, other powertrain technologies will likely be needed.”

GM is already there (and has been, since the 2011 model year…) with the Volt!

Could existing electric vehicles (EVs), despite their limited driving range, bring about a meaningful reduction in the greenhouse-gas emissions that are causing global climate change? Researchers at MIT have just completed the most comprehensive study yet to address this hotly debated question, and have reached a clear conclusion: Yes, they can.
