OK – since we’re a Toyota fan site let’s get one thing straight: any four pickups could have done this. Four Fords, four Rams, four Nissans – they all have enough torque to pull down the facade on an already partially demolished building. SO, if you’re a “Chevy is number one” kind of person, and you think this video somehow proves that Chevy’s are the greatest, you’re delusional.
Now, without further delay, I present a video showing Four Chevy Trucks Helping To Demolish A Building:

NHTSA has released their crash test ratings for many of the 2011 half-tons on the market – here’s a summary of the ratings.
So far, it looks like the 2011 Tundra is the safest half-ton on the market, with only the narrowest lead over the GM trucks as a result of the Tundra’s superior IIHS test results. The F150 and Ram come in to third and fourth place respectively (the Nissan Titan has not been rated by NHTSA, so it’s not included in our comparison).
Once the Toyota Tundra gained a 5.7-liter V8 engine with nearly 400 horsepower on tap, it didn’t take a crystal ball to predict that pretty soon YouTube would be filling up with tire-melting shenanigans caught on amateur video. Burnouts are fun – especially if it’s not your tires going up in smoke – and the Tundra has more than its fair share of cool brakestands and donuts preserved for the ages by camcorders across the country.
Let’s take a look at some of the best Tundra burnout videos available on YouTube.
The Toyota Tundra is one tough truck, which has helped to make it a popular platform for mudding. For anyone unfamiliar with the sport, “mudding” (also known as “muddin“) is the act of taking a pickup through one or more deep mud holes without getting stuck – or at least, without getting stuck too badly.
Some people choose to mod their Tundras for more effective mud play, while others run what they brung and take their stock rigs through the pits without batting an eye. Either way, it makes for some entertaining video footage. Let’s take a look at some of the best Toyota Tundra mudding videos available online.
It’s one thing to know how something works, but it’s another to be able to explain it. When I find myself struggling to explain the mechanical function of a turbocharger, for example, I often head to YouTube.com to see if I can find a nice video that explains it for me.
Here are 10 nice videos that explain how car parts work – everything from the basic 4-stroke engine to turbos to clutches to differentials – quickly and easily.
How A Rear Differential Works
This is an excellent explanation of how a rear differential works, produced by Chevrolet back in 1937. It’s a must-watch video if only because the explanation is conducted so clearly…but it’s not the only great video I’ve found.
