Automotive

All hail the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. According to the recent press release, the 6.2L V-8-powered ZL1 is a 640hp monster with magnetic ride suspension and a 10-speed(!) automatic transmission.

Chevy is releasing a new trim for the popular Colorado pickup. It's called the Shoreline, it's completely cosmetic, and it pays tribute to the gold coast. The trim comes in red, white, blue, or silver, and the front bumper will match the body color. In addition, the Shoreline will have a blacked out grill, wheels, and door handles.

BMW has stated that they will in fact produce a spyder version of the i8. The drop-top will have the same performance numbers as the coupe but without, you know, a roof.

Gear

Life is all about exploration, stepping outside your comfort zone and enjoying the simplicities of nature. So stop lazing on the couch and invest in a Classic American Dream Trailer. This 4x8 foot, 650 lb trailer has everything you need to comfortably house two people, and when you get bored the roof doubles as a row boat. Do it!

Lifestyle

In honor of SXSW, today’s beer pick takes us to Jester King Brewery in Austin, Texas. This farmhouse brewery is all about truly adventurous brews using unique fermentation processes and local grains. Plus, the brewery has a massive outdoor space perfect for SXSW social event.

Deal of the Day: Modern, fancified workout gear is seriously expensive, so when something goes on sale we usually jump on it. Kettlebells open up a world of exercises—which does help justify their cost, which can run the equivalent of a month's membership at a good gym. Fortunately, Amazon is selling 45-lb kettlebells for 53% off.
