Chevy Chase I Got Swift Kick to the Shoulder In Road Rage Incident!!!

2/22/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chevy Chase tracked down a truck he says cut him off, but when he tried to confront the driver he ended up getting booted to the ground ... according to a police report.

Chevy claims he was traveling over NY's Tappan Zee Bridge on February 9 when a black pickup cut him off. He told cops he thought the truck hit his car, so he flashed his high beams and followed it until the driver pulled over.

According to police docs ... Chevy realized there was no damage to either vehicle, but approached the driver to "speak to him about his reckless driving." He claims there were 3 other people in the truck, and one of 'em flipped him off. Apparently not "Fletch" or "Caddyshack" fans.

Chevy says he fired back, "If I were a lot younger I'd bust your nose" ... then one of 'em got out and kicked him in the shoulder so hard he went to the ground.

According to docs, the pickup driver claims Chevy tried to throw a punch first, and the alleged kicker was just blocking Chevy's fist ... with his foot.

Cops cited ol' quick foot for 2nd degree harassment with physical contact.

There was a 3rd party witness who, according to cops, pulled over because he didn't want to see an old man "get his ass stomped."

'Dumb and Dumber' Mini Bike Sells for $50k To Lucky Single Guy

2/21/2018 12:10 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Just when you thought the sale of the "Dumb and Dumber" mini bike couldn't possibly be any dumber, it was.

The hog featured in the classic 1994 comedy, and used to get Lloyd and Harry to Aspen ... hauled in $50,000 for the Houston man who sold it on eBay to fortify his kid's college fund. Considering the opening bid was $8,500 ... nice work, Dad.

The new owner is Todd Lyons from New York, who tells us one of his friends told him he wanted to bid on it, but his wife lowered the boom. Todd had no one dissuading him, so he went for it. Three cheers for bachelorhood!

As we reported ... the mini bike was one of 2 used in the film, specifically in all the close-up riding scenes with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels.

Todd tells us he was 13 when he first saw the flick with his buddy, so he's thrilled to own a piece of it ... which he will proudly display on his wall.

Prince William Gets Your Motor Running!!! (Maybe Just a Little?)

2/20/2018 7:22 AM PST

Prince William ain't exactly the "Easy Rider" type, but he's trying his damnedest to look the part.

The Duke of Cambridge suited up Tuesday, hopped on a Triumph motorbike, popped the clutch and zoomed off -- but not too far. This was mostly a photo op, after all.

Wills visited Triumph Motorcycles and MIRA Technology Park in England -- and took a tour to celebrate the British company's world-class facilities.

Really though ... it was an awesome excuse for the father of 2 to live in the fast lane again. William used to own a Ducati back in his youth, and seemed to recapture some of that while test riding a Triumph Tiger 1200 around the factory's private track.

He got an up-close look at the assembly line and the slick machines they're producing -- but, let's be honest, he's got baby number 3 on the way. Probably best if William sticks to this kind of racing.

John Cena Slams Ford In $500k Supercar War ... You Suck at Paperwork!

2/13/2018 12:17 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

John Cena is giving Ford a little attitude adjustment of his own -- telling the car company to take their lawsuit over his old $500,000 supercar and shove it.

We broke the story ... Ford claims it sold Cena a super rare "limited edition" Ford GT supercar -- 647 horsepower, 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine with an MSRP of $450,000.

Ford claims they only selected a few people for the privilege of buying the car -- and Cena was one of the lucky ones (Justin Verlander and Joey Logano also own the whip).

The caveat, according to Ford, owners CANNOT resell the car during the initial 24 months of ownership. Ford claims Cena broke the rules and flipped his ride for a profit. They're suing Cena for every penny he got from the sale. 

But in new court docs filed in district court in Michigan, John says he did nothing wrong -- because the final contract he signed said nothing about a 24-month no-resale clause.

Cena says Ford screwed up by not putting the sale restriction in the final binding contract -- and he shouldn't be punished because they suck at paperwork.

Now, he's asking the judge to throw out the case against him.

Stay tuned ... 

Elon Musk's Falcon Heavy Rocket Freaks Out Over Launch 'Holy Flying F**k'

2/11/2018 11:42 AM PST

Elon Musk was just as shocked as anybody over the successful launch of his Falcon Heavy rocket ... perhaps even more so, actually, based on his colorful language. 

National Geographic captured the SpaceX CEO's reaction Tuesday as his company sent the most powerful U.S. rocket in nearly half a century into space from the Kennedy Space Center. His immediate response ... "Holy flying f***, that thing took off." 

Musk and staff essentially freaked out over the launch, and appropriately so. SpaceX sent a rocket into orbit with a Tesla Roadster attached as part of its payload ... a major step forward for colonizing Mars.

Besides ... the launch and touchdown of their booster rockets was quite a sight to behold. So we'll pardon his French on this one ... it was pretty f****** cool.

'Dumb and Dumber' Mini Bike for Sale But, No Trading a Van for It Straight-Up

2/10/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The mini bike from "Dumb and Dumber" -- which Lloyd and Harry rode all the way to Aspen -- is in good running order and looking for a new owner ... but ya can't just trade your Shaggin' Wagon for it.

This "hog" is one of 2 used in the classic 1994 comedy, and we're told it was featured in all the close-up riding scenes with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. It was gifted to Gordie Merrick, the movie's transportation coordinator, who had it for about 20 years before the current owner acquired it.

The other bike was gifted to Planet Hollywood.

The Houston man who owns this mini bike says he spent over a year fixing it up and restoring it to the original condition, and now it's good to go. We're told he's selling it on eBay with the opening bid starting at $8,500, to make some extra dough because his kid is going off to college.

As an added bonus, the buyer of the bike also gets the helmet, bag and briefcase thrown in ... although those aren't film originals. It also includes a signed and notarized letter of authenticity.

The mini bike's up for grabs until February 18, and animals lovers will be happy to know -- 10 percent of the proceeds will go to the Best Friends Animal Society.

Floyd Mayweather Bugatti Oil Changes? $25,000-A-POP!

2/10/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Owning exotic cars ain't cheap -- just ask Floyd Mayweather who spends more on an OIL CHANGE than some people make in a year!!!!

TMZ Sports spoke with Floyd's longtime car guy Obi Okeke -- aka Doctor Bugatti -- who was on his way over to oversee maintenance on one of the boxer's "triple red" 2012 Bugatti Grand Sport Convertible. 

Okeke has previously told us the car is worth around $3.3 MILLION

So, how much does an oil change and a tire replacement run on one of these supercars? Obe breaks it down ... and it's gonna make all of us feel really, super poor. 

There's more ... Obi also tells us what Floyd looks for in a super car and if he's in the market to buy right now. 

Spoiler Alert: When you've made more than $300 MILLION in one day, you're always in the market to buy. 

Keegan-Michael Key The Tesla's Great, But Here's What Elon Should Launch Next

2/7/2018 6:51 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Keegan-Michael Key is blown away by Elon Musk's latest triumph, but he has the perfect household item the great explorer should hurl into space next.

We got the "Key & Peele" star Tuesday in Bev Hills leaving The Palm and asked if he'd caught the launch of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket -- which was historic for lots of reasons.

He says he missed it, but sounds pleased with the results. Then he hits our camera guy with a little bit of a hot take -- humans aren't stepping foot onto Mars anytime soon ... despite the Tesla Roadster and the mannequin spaceman zipping toward the red planet. 

Keegan thinks the car is cool, but there's something that Martians may find more useful.

He makes a solid point ... that a private citizen with a passion for space exploration might be better suited to tool around the galaxy than NASA.

SpaceX Launches Powerful Falcon Heavy Rocket ... And a Tesla Roadster!!!

2/6/2018 12:25 PM PST
Breaking News

Elon Musk is a very happy (and still very rich) man after SpaceX successfully launched its Falcon Heavy rocket toward Mars -- and it was freakin' awesome to watch!

SpaceX sent up the most powerful U.S. rocket in nearly half a century from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Elon had previously said there's a good chance the Falcon Heavy rocket won't survive liftoff. He's never been happier to be wrong.

The mission goal -- send the payload beyond Mars' orbit.

Musk added, "I hope it makes it far enough away from the pad that it does not cause pad damage." Well, it did, and really cool part -- they also safely landed the reusable booster rockets back on Earth.

The launch test is another step toward colonizing Mars, which is why SpaceX is sending a Tesla Roadster as part of the rocket's test payload. David Bowie's "Space Oddity" was playing on the car's stereo system. Serious style points.

The Falcon Heavy will generate 5M pounds of thrust ... making it the most powerful launch since NASA's Saturn V that had 7.5M pounds of thrust during its Apollo mission.

Mike 'The Situation' Exotic Car Flexin' After Tax Evasion Case

2/6/2018 9:39 AM PST

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's in a dancing mood checking out luxury whips ... probably because he doesn't have to stress about dropping cash on one of them.

The Sitch was with his 'Jersey Shore' pals Ronnie, Vinny and Pauly D Monday in Miami filming for their reunion show, and visited an exotic car dealership to take a couple badass rides for a spin.

Ronnie took the wheel of a Lambo, with Mike riding shotgun -- while Pauly D and Vin hopped in a Bentley.

The sad situation is ... Sitch ain't getting any closer than a test drive. As we reported, he recently pled guilty to tax evasion, and owes a big check to the IRS. He's also looking at up to 5 years in prison and a hefty fine.

Window shopping ain't a crime though.

Travis Barker C'mon and Ride His Green Goblin!!! Then Buy It, Please

2/6/2018 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Travis Barker's old flame is back on the market, and she can be yours ... for a cool $16,900.

The flame is his 2007 Honda CBR1000RR. The Blink-182 drummer sold it a few years ago, and now the guy who bought it from him is flipping the sweet green ride. The seller tells us the bike had a mere 12 miles on it, because Travis mainly used it to promote his clothing line, "Famous Stars & Straps."

It's been featured in more photo shoots since Travis sold it, and it's easy to see why.

The 4-cylinder is quite the looker with custom rims, whitewall Pirelli Diablo tires and its glossy, show-stopping green paint.

Envy included with this purchase.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Hasta La Vista, Bugatti!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Arnold Schwarzenegger is one happy used car salesman after someone took his Bugatti Veyron off his hands ... for about $2.5 million.

We're told Arnold's 2015 Veyron -- which goes 0-60 mph in 2.5 secs -- only had about 1,000 miles on it ... so it's a sweet ride. 

The buyer is Obi Okeke, aka Doctor Bugatti ... the same guy who sold Floyd Mayweather a similar whip. Okeke plans to resell it, if you're in the market for something that tops out at 267 mph.

And you can afford the inevitable tickets.
