Humans and heavy machinery have always suffered a love/hate relationship. Lucky for us, that relationship has been caught on film since the early 1900’s.
This train crash above is from Buster Keaton’s 1926 classic, The General, is the most expensive scene in the history from the silent movie-era. The car fails below were all shot for free, courtesy of smartphones, GoPros and dash cams.
Truck driver takes graceful exit
BMW goes cliff diving
Two Corvettes are not always better than one
Lewis Hamilton hits the wall at 21Gs
Some cars make great snow sculptures
Always wear your seatbelt when drifting
This guy was definitely busted for making an illegal left
Did anybody order a T-bone?
Train: 1 Truck: 0
