I think we can agree that cars and girls go quite well together. Sometimes, even more so than one might expect. There are more than a few examples of influential women in the car scene, whether it’s in motorsports or automotive media.
Faye Hadley, also known as the automotive technician from All Girls Garage, is one such example. Between being a car mechanic, entrepreneur, co-star in a TV car show, and a teacher, Faye is one of the most diverse and interesting car people. And although there is an undeniable charm to a woman who’s not afraid to get some grease under her fingernails, this begs the question, how did she get where she is, and what makes her tick? Here are a couple of facts you may not know about this charming car girl.
Screw The New Batmobile, We’re More Interested in Bruce Wayne’s 1963 Corvette Stingray Daily Driver
Batman may be driving a jet-powered Batmobile while fighting crime in Gotham City, but Bruce Wayne’s daily driver is actually a vintage Chevrolet Corvette. Robert Pattinson, the actor that will play Batman in the next iteration of the movie (The Batman), was spotted driving a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray in Liverpool, England, where filming for the upcoming Batman movie is currently taking place.
Trump Sign Off the 405 Torn Down by Officials
Mere weeks separate us from the 2020 Presidential Election that sees Democrat candidate, and former Vice President, Joe Biden try to end President Donald Trump’s tenure at the White House. The battle has proven to be fierce, to say the least, but the most recent chapter doesn’t even involve the two candidates directly.
A Trump supporter’s decision to erect a sign that says ’TRUMP’ in big, white letters had local authorities knock on his door within hours due to the sign’s size, location, and proximity to the 405 highway. Trump supporters say it’s a clear case of ’socialism in action’ but there’s little more than meets the eye in this story.
Tom Cruise and a Doorless BMW M5 Take the Mission Impossible Set By Storm
While most of us fawn over all the cars that appear in the Fast & Furious and James Bond franchises, the Mission Impossible franchise has had its fair share of fancy rides. BMW, in particular, has been a partner of the Tom Cruise-led franchise since 2011 when the i8 Concept made a cameo in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.
Since then, BMW has been the go-to ride of Ethan Hunt and company, and that will continue in the next Mission Impossible movie. The yet-to-be-named movie is the seventh one in the franchise and filming is taking place in Rome, and, to no one’s surprise, a BMW model is being used in what looks to be an action-packed chase scene around the streets of the Italian capital.
Supercar Blondie Took a Break From Supercars To Hit The Beach In Something Unique
Supercar Blondie is known to review supercars primarily, but this time, she’s gotten hold of something completely different. Filmed on a beach in the UAE, she laid her hands on an amphibious beast known as Avtoros Shaman 8x8. The Shaman 8x8 is a monster in terms of size and has some pretty large wheels and tires. The best part about the Shaman 8x8 is that you can take it for a swim in the ocean if you’re bored with roads. If this was part of GTA: Vice City, it would be the only car that didn’t need the “SEAWAYS” cheat code to swim in water!
Eddie van Halen Once Owned The Coolest Lamborghini Miura In The World
The Lamborghini Miura was Lamborghini’s brash, unlawful, in-your-face statement that Ferrari is no longer cool. As the first modern supercar and the first mid-engined production car, the Miura set the tone for everything that came after it. Similarly, Californian hard rock and heavy metal group Van Halen revolutionized the genre with its brash, unlawful, in-your-face debut album that came out in 1978. It signaled the change of the guards as the new boys walked in with steps as loud as Eddie Van Halen’s guitar licks. A few years later, these two worlds collided.
The Hottest and Most Talented Female Race Car Drivers
Racing has been a male dominated sport ever since the automobile was created. And that won’t change anytime soon. However, women have also driven cars at a competitive level since the early days.

Nowadays, the sports is still dominated by men, but there are hundreds of women competing in all series and on any level. Here’s out top 10 list of the hottest and most talented female race car drivers.
Shaq and the Tesla Model S - Not a Match Made in Heaven
Shaquille O’Neal needs no introduction. The four-time NBA champion is one of the most renowned and celebrated basketball players of all time. As a sports fan, you will surely be amazed by his career stats. But, as an automotive nut – whether you care to admit or not – you’d have wondered how can this man get into cars.
His tall stature means he can’t enjoy the low seating and the not-so-big dimensions of any hot hatch or sedan. And, the Tesla Model S, despite its spacious interior, is no exception. A TikTok video posted by Anthony C.Hall proves exactly that. After finally making his way inside, Shaq had a piece of advice for Tesla’s CEO - “Elon, you wanna make a big boy Tesla?”
This Is The Best Look At the New Batmobile That We’ve Gotten So Far
Obviously, you know that a new Batman movie is coming – we’ve even written about how the Batmobile looks like a crazy blend between a muscle car and a mid-engined supercar. That news was published after Matt Reeves posted a handful of dark teaser images that were revealing enough but didn’t show us everything. Now, the new Batmobile has been caught on camera during the day and, well, you just have to see it.

Just like any other superstar athlete, Michael Jordan knew his sports cars and supercars. He’s known to have owned anything in between a Corvette C5, Ferrari 550 Maranello, slant-nosed Porsche 911 Turbo, Corvette C4 ZR-1, and the W140-generation Mercedes-Benz S600 tweaked by Lorinser.
The latter is now up for sale, if the ad on Beverly Hills Car Club is to be taken seriously.
