    “All cars must have tracking devices to cut road deaths, says EU (The Telegraph)
    The EU has passed a law requiring all new cars to have OnStar-esque tracking devices to alert emergency services in the event of a crash.”

    Exactly how many people have died in unreported accidents waiting for EMS to arrive? It seems like it makes the national news here in the US whenever a car is found in a gulley days after the crash, and that it happens about 1-2 times a year in a country of 310 million people with lots of empty space.

    That makes for a nice looking ambulance, I like it.

    Nice “Mad Max” link, those are some very ridiculous cars.

      The Star Wars, Mad Max, and Jurassic Park trailers have made me excited about movies again for the first time in awhile. There is nothing I don’t like about the Fury Road trailers. My wife may even go to see it with me. Because Tom Hardy.

        the Star Wars trailers give me goosebumps, Jurassic World looks col, but also a lot like ‘turn it up to 11’-remake.
        I’ve been waiting for Mad Max (4) Fury Road forever and have been hanging out on the fan forum ( for 10 years, so I’ve seen these cars (and a lot better pics) for years. Only two more weeks of waiting now :)

    For extra credit, who can identify the most makes and models used in the Mad Max cars?

    I like the little pickup. It looks, quite unintentionally Im sure, a bit like Pontiac design language just before the brand was killed off.
