Meet the Detroit Diesel-Powered 6×6 Cadillac Hearse That Rides on 60-Inch Mud Tires

I’ve always been fascinated by vintage Cadillac hearses; not because of their association with the end of the road, but they look cool in a Johnny Cash sort of way. However, this 6×6 diesel behemoth is now more Black Sabbath than Cash. The master mechanic who built this big-daddy Caddy is named Jimmy Driver. He, along with his wife Leah and friends, created this impressive machine in true Frankenstein fashion. They ripped parts off school buses, tractors and industrial equipment and put it together one piece at a time to create this killer mud bogger named Mortis.


YouTube channel Barcoft Cars took an in-depth look into Mortis in 2018 as part of its Ridiculous Riders series. Driver tells the story of how the idea for Mortis was born in 2004. He saw purpose-built mud bogger rigs and decided he wanted to do that too. That was all the motivation he needed to buy a $600 1967 Cadillac Superior in Utica, Mississippi, and haul it back home to the snow covered mountains of Naples, Idaho. Over the next 14 years, Driver and his family tinkered, welded and fabricated parts to build Mortis. The finished product is a ten-foot-tall Cadillac Superior with a 22,000-pound curb weight, thanks mostly to its massive 60-inch tires.


Powering this six-wheel-drive heavy metal album cover is a 6V53 Detroit Diesel engine located where the Cadillac’s back seat used to be. Mortis is no longer a street-legal hearse thanks to its limited top speed of 12 mph and the fact that you need to wear ear protection while driving it. The Detroit Diesel needs to be provoked into starting, too-sort of like aggravating a bull at a rodeo before the rider gets on. Also like a raging bull, once Mortis gets going, it’ll mow down anything in its way. From driving over boulders to knocking down trees, Mortis is not just for show, even if it is slow.
Driver has no intention of ever selling Mortis as he didn’t build it to make a profit. He built it to be enjoyed and ends the video by saying the vehicle will more than likely be passed down. How’s that for a family heirloom?

Why it’s important to look for the limitations in coronavirus studies

This week, I got to talk about vaccines and vaccine information with Natalie Dean, and The Verge’s Nicole Wetsman and Nilay Patel on The Vergecast. It was a great conversation with Dean, who is an assistant professor of biostatistics at the University of Florida and an expert in infectious disease epidemiology who has worked on designing vaccine trials.
After the podcast, I got to ask something that had been on my mind: how did she – a person who works with scientific data every day – feel about the flood of early versions of scientific studies being posted online? And how much attention should the general public be paying to them?
Before we get to her answer, let’s take a quick step back to talk about what these early studies are. Scientists call them preprints, and they are studies that get posted online before they’ve been published in a scientific journal. They haven’t been fully vetted by other experts (a process called peer review). Preprints are helpful to scientists because they quickly put data out into the world that could be useful to other researchers.
The downside? They’re essentially first drafts, and conclusions could change after the researchers get feedback. Balancing the need for speedy data with the need for reviewing work before it goes public is especially tricky during the pandemic – and both the pace of publication and attention to preprints has definitely amped up in the past several months.
“There already were these preprint servers before, but they’ve never been used to this degree,” Dean says. For a long time, prestigious journals would refuse to publish a paper if it had been posted elsewhere, which meant scientists kept their research under wraps until they had their final draft.
That’s started to change over the last few years as journals have loosened their restrictions. Now there’s a flood of coronavirus-related papers available online, and some can attract a lot of attention – and confusion. Not all of that attention is a good thing, as Kelsey Piper wrote for Vox back in May:
The newer, faster pace could mean that badly flawed pre-prints get widely shared and covered in the media, fueling the spread of misinformation and forcing other scientists to waste valuable time by publicly debunking papers that would ordinarily be rejected in the peer-review process.
Piper pointed out that there were plenty of advantages to preprints, too – they force data to move at 21st-century speeds instead of staying stuck in the 19th century, and when lots of experts are actively participating in the process, they can cut out a ton of unnecessary downtime.
That’s especially true in a pandemic. “My feeling is the benefits outweigh the risks in the situation where time is of the essence, and we’re all learning from each other,” Dean says. And the pace of academic publishing is so slow, that I just don’t think it is still viable.”
But there’s still that one big disadvantage. “Scientists know how to evaluate the limitations of preprints. But it’s challenging for the public to do so,” Dean says.
She’s got a good tip to help readers start assessing news stories about preprints: look for the limitations. A story that tells you what the study doesn’t is helpful. This doesn’t just apply to preprints, either: it’s good advice for any story about a scientific paper. All studies have limitations; good reporters tell you what they are.
In other words, look for the peer review in a news story, especially when it comes to a preprint. Look for it on Twitter, where Dean and other researchers have thrown cold water on extraordinary claims. Look for it in dedicated volunteer efforts, like Johns Hopkins’ 2019 Novel Coronavirus Research Compendium which actively assesses papers that get a lot of media attention. Look for it at Rapid Reviews: COVID-19, an open-access journal explicitly devoted to peer-reviewing COVID-19 preprints. And most of all, as we keep wading through a flood of information, take a beat to look skeptically on claims that seem incredible.
“The more extreme a result seems, the more evidence we need to support that,” Dean says.
Here’s what else is going on this week:

Porsche 911 Turbo S Vs McLaren 600LT Drag Race Has A Clear Winner

If you were skeptical about just home impressive the new 992 Porsche 911 Turbo S’s straight-line performance is, we have the video for you. Sure, beating a lowly hot hatchback in a drag race is great, but the team at Carfection has an even better plan to test the 992 911 Turbo S. Drag race the track-oriented McLaren 600LT supercar. We liked this plan a lot and sat down to watch the ensuing carnage.

The 992 Porsche 911 Turbo S is one of the most impressive new cars on sale today. Powered by a 3.8-liter flat-6 that develops 640 horsepower (477 kW) and 590 lb-ft
(619 nm)of torque, the 911 Turbo S can match the performance of just about any car on the planet. This superb engine is mated to Porsche’s lightning-fast 8-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission which allows this impressive 911 to use all of the boosted flat-6’s power.

To ensure optimal grip and acceleration, the 911 Turbo S uses an all-wheel-drive system that can vector torque and make sure power is being sent to the wheels with the most grip. These impressive features are good for a 0 to 60 mph run in 2.6 seconds and a top speed of 205mph. One could write a book about the impressive engineering that underpins the 992 911 Turbo S but these are the highlights that grab headlines.


The McLaren 600LT is a stripped-down track weapon that benefits from additional engineering inputs from the McLaren team who tweaked the 570S supercar into a more focused performance machine.
The 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 in the 600LT develops 592 horsepower (441 kW) and 457 lb-ft (619 nm)of torque. Power is routed through a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and sent to the rear wheels.

Now this drag race would be a little different if the track was longer, but in this shorter sprint, nothing can touch the 992 Turbo S.

New Mercedes C-Class Sedan Spied Testing In Tandem With Wagon Version

Mercedes-Benz has been testing the C-Class more often recently, with sightings coming out here and there. The latest of which is from walkoARTvideos on Youtube, which spotted the compact luxury vehicle in Germany.
Interestingly, it isn’t only the sedan version that was seen in the video embedded on top. The C-Class Estate has also been spied testing on the same route as the sedan, giving us a glimpse of the forbidden fruit for the American wagon fans.
Coded W203 (sedan) and S203 (wagon), there has been several tidbits about the upcoming revamped version of the Mercedes C-Class. Ola Kaellenius, chairman of the board of management for the Daimler group, has recently hinted that the C-Class will be heavily influenced by the S-Class. This supports the previous sightings wherein the C-Class showed a number of screens inside. Of note, the new S-Class comes nothing short of high-tech with its bevy of screens in the cabin, along with new powertrain options and other extensive updates.
It’s also expected that the new C-Class will come with mild-hybrid technology in tow, while a hybrid version of the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder from the AMG A45 will likely appear in the next-generation model.
As for the C-Class Estate, wagon fans from the U.S. will be disappointed to know that the chances of it reaching the states is really low, considering that Mercedes is trimming down its lineup. This is, of course, a business move since a complicated lineup would be costly for the German marque plus it isn’t helping the brand in terms of sales at all.
More details about the upcoming C-Class will be revealed in the weeks and months to come as we draw closer to its reveal, which will most likely happen in 2021.

Robert Pattinson hid his Southern accent from The Devil All the Time director till day one of shooting

Pattinson’s other co-stars, who include Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Bill Skarsgard and more, worked closely with a dialect coach and would send Campos recordings of their progress. In contrast, Campos only heard Pattinson’s accent and his “character in person” on his very first day of filming with Elizabeth Scanlen.
While it may have been a massive gamble, Campos explained that he wasn’t worried. He continued, “There was no way in my mind that he wasn’t going to come on set with something bad. I might not have dug it, but it wasn’t going to be bad.”
“I’d rather have someone come with something weird that’s a choice than something that isn’t thought out. So I knew he would come with something interesting,” he said.
Campos and Pattinson were friends prior to the film and once the script was ready, Campos shared the project with Pattinson – asking him who he was interested in playing. Pattinson immediately was drawn to Teagardin and Campos recalled the actor said he “would be fun to play.”
Besides his role in Campos’ film, Pattinson is currently playing Bruce Wayne in an upcoming Batman reboot alongside Zoe Kravitz. Filming on the project ground to a halt however as Pattinson tested positive for coronavirus, but it has since resumed filming according to a Warner Bros. spokesperson yesterday.
The Devil All the Time is currently streaming on Netflix.
