For the past few months, GARY BUSEY has been doing ads for car dealerships in Pittsburgh and Houston. And they're all awesomely bad.
--The newest one is a Halloween ad for a Kia dealership, where Busey makes a bad joke about witches and brooms, says the cars are "scared priceless" TWICE, then just goes nuts.

Indy 500 Winner Dan Wheldon Was Killed in a Horrible 15-Car Crash at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway
33-year-old Indy 500 winner DAN WHELDON was killed yesterday in a 15-car pile-up at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. On lap 13, two cars bumped and set off a chain reaction. Then Wheldon ramped off another car, hit the wall, and his car caught fire.
He was airlifted to a hospital, but two hours later, they announced he didn't make it. He'd won the Indy 500 twice: In May, and back in 2005. Three other drivers were hurt, and it's not surprising . . .
In the video, you can see THREE cars go completely airborne at one point. The rest of the race was cancelled.[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/IK7gICqz3aA" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /]
Amazing video has surfaced of several bystanders rushing to the aid of a motorcyclist trapped under a BMW.
It happened in Logan, Utah, near the campus of Utah State University. The video shows a group of students, construction workers, and others lifting the car from atop the pinned man as his burning motorcycle begins to engulf the car.
Police say the man is in stable condition. So far, none of the anonymous heroes have come forward.

KISS members Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer took time out from recording their new album in Los Angeles to appear last Thursday at the New York Auto Show. Wearing their stage costumes, they helped unveil four KISS-inspired custom-painted and autographed Countryman Minis, which will be auctioned off to aid UNICEF's efforts to help children in Japan and around the world. The auction starts on May 29th.
AND JUST FOR THE HELL OF IT, HERE'S ME WITH A GUY FROM "MINI KISS"
Imagine cleaning out a garage and finding something so amazing that it was like winning the lottery. It happened to a Kansas businessman.
Working as an auctioneer for the last 40 years, Bill Fair said he has come across some weird stuff. "A skull, body parts," he said. But Fair said even he wasn't prepared for what he found recently.
What Fair found was a classic 66 Shelby Mustang one of only 1,100 made, and sold from Carroll Shelby's personal carÂ lot. The fastback was sitting in the middle of a huge pile of junk in a storage unit. It has been there 26 years and was in near perfect condition. "In the middle of all the trash was a car," he said.
Fair didn't really know what his company had just found. A little research showed that similar carsÂ have sold for upwards of $2 million. To read more and see a video on this story, FOLLOW THIS LINK:
One of the most famous monster trucks in the history of the sport is called GRAVE DIGGER, and the driver's name is Dennis Anderson. But at Monster Jam 2011 in Las Vegas over the weekend, it was Dennis's son Ryan who stole the show.
Driving a truck named SON-UVA DIGGER, Ryan successfully landed a BACKFLIP. Apparently it's not the first backflip ever landed in a monster truck, but it's still impressive. And it looks like it shouldn't even be possible.

A few days ago I was having some work done at my local garage, Quality Tune-Up on Douglas in Roseville, and a blonde woman came in and asked for a seven-hundred-ten knob. We all looked at each other and a customer in the lobby asked, 'what is a 710 knob?' She replied, 'you know, the little piece in the middle of the engine. I've lost it and need a new one.' She also said she didn't know exactly what it was, but this piece had always been there. The mechanic (owner Chris) gave her a piece of paper and asked her to draw what it looked like. She drew a circle and in the middle of it wrote 710. He then took her over to a car which had it's hood up and asked, 'is there a 710 knob on this car?' She pointed and said, 'of course, it's right there!'
