Honda Thanks Motorcyclist for Saving Kitten


Getting off a motorcycle in the middle of a busy intersection is never a smart choice. However, one biker threw caution to the wind to save a little orange kitten, a bold move that was captured by the rider's helmet camera. 

According to the footage, the orange kitten was hiding in the suspension of the maroon-colored sedan that is seen driving perpendicular of the bike, until it plopped onto the concrete. It is quite common, especially has the temperatures begin to dip, for small strays and wild animals to wiggle their way into engine blocks and small spaces under cars to find warmth.

The video has since garnered quite a lot of attention, climbing to over 3 million views in just a few days. Taking notice as well was the mega manufacturer, Honda. Their YouTube account expressed their pride and gratitude for the rider and, of course, remembered to compliment her choice in bike.

The kitten, appropriately named Skidmark, has taken a liking to his new home with the biker that saved him. "His name, Skidmark, is a little bit of dark humor, but we thought it was appropriate considering that's exactly what he could've been," she told ABC news

Man Jumps from Burning Vehicle


What do you do to celebrate the end of the summer in Alabama? The answer, according to a group of six 21-year old dudes is simple-- light a car on fire, launch it off of a hill and perform one of the most insane amateur vehicle jumps to ever circulate the internet.

The video, uploaded on Sept 8 by aguyfromalabama has already accumulated over 750,000 views. The entire thing looks like something out of a summer blockbuster action flick. However, Jed Huie, the "brave soul" who can be seen flying out of the vehicle, did hold his nose upon hitting the water. YouTube commenters are less than impressed by that rookie mistake. Check out the full stunt below.

Huie is still active on social media, so it's safe to assume that he did in fact survive the jump. Got a thing for flames? Here's a hot Overhaulin' deception for ya! 

The Classic Cars of Glacier National Park


Today marks the 99th birthday of the National Park Service and believe it or not, they don't just preserve nature, they preserve the nostalgia of classic cars. Well, mainly one in particular. 


Meet the Red Buses of Glacier National Park, made by the White Motor Company in 1914. The classic 17-passenger vehicles were designed by Count Alexis de Sakhoffsky, an industrial stylist who collaborated with the White Motor Company and the Bender Body Company, in order to transport sightseers along the mountainous glaciers. To this day, tourists flock to Glacier National Park for a ride back in time. 


Here are some fast facts about the vehicles:
(provided by Glacier National Park Lodges)

  • The color of the Red Buses comes from the Ripe Mountain Ash Berry found within the park.
  • Of the 33 buses on the road today, 17 are from 1936, 11 are from 1937, 4 are from 1938 and 1 is from 1939.
  • The Red Buses have oak frames.
  • The drivers are called “Jammers” because they could be heard “Jamming” the gears of the red buses going up Going-to-the-Sun Road when the buses had standard transmissions
  • There were over 500 White Model 706’s made for different national parks in the US.
  • Women were discouraged from riding in front because they distracted the male drivers.
  • No tours were offered in Glacier between 1943 and 1946 due to fuel rationing caused by the second World War.
  • The Red Buses received their first automatic transmissions in 1989.
  • On the bottom of the grill of the Red Buses, you can still see the area were the crank start used to be.
  • The Red Buses, on average, transport 60,000 tourist each summer through the park.
  • Ford Motor Company donated over $6 Million to restore 33 buses to keep them in operation.
  • The fleet of 33 buses in Glacier are widely considered to be the oldest touring fleet of vehicles anywhere in the world.
