From Car and Driver

Sometimes, like it or not, the satirical website known as The Onion makes fun of the things that you love. And we get it; cars, evidently, are great fodder for jokes. The internet's favorite satire site has produced some noteworthy work on the automobile, although admittedly, it can be hard to laugh when they do things like a mashup of a 14-wheeled "Chevrolet" SUV and the front end of a Porsche Macan–looking vehicle (we took the Macan part personally, because, well, we're Car and Driver).

With April 1 in mind, there's no better time to go back to some of our favorite headlines and stories from The Onion and share them with you.
