Danica Patrick and the 'Speeding' ad for

* You know those annoying "Heelys" shoes that kids have been wearing for the past few years? Well, an industrious transportation nut has taken the idea and, ahem, run with it. On the upside: a mall full of people using his "Treadways" could get awfully hilarious. [AutoMotto]

* Has anyone ever taken a good driver's license photo? In our wallets, you'll find nothing but a bunch of drunkfaces and Manson lamps. But hey, at least most of us are smiling--which is something that the good citizens of Arkansas, Indiana, Nevada, and Virginia are now forbidden to do. [KickingTires]

* In the 1980s, we were kind of jealous of Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis--she was everywhere, and she knew everyone, like the best-bred groupie on Planet Earth. Now we're jealous of her gearhead son, who's just added a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 to his already-bursting garage. Some people. [MotorAuthority]

* Remember that house from Ferris Bueller's Day Off? The one with the plate-glass windows that were shattered by that beaut of a Ferrari? Well, it's for sale. The car isn't included, but here's a video that'll bring back warm fuzzy memories. [Gizmodo]

* We aren't sure what Bob Parsons was thinking when he launched the latest web-only ad for Seriously: Danica Patrick in vintage Mustang getting a lap-dance from a ladycop who pole-dances on road signs...oh, wait. We know exactly what he was thinking. [Edmunds, YouTube]
