Concept Fisker Karma – a set on Flickr

Very cool set of photos that remind us car guys that green doesn’t mean ugly…..actually it looks like it can mean super sexy.

The Death Race Movie-car Mustang- Video

Alexis just uploaded this interview he did of the Deathrace Mustang. I have to admit that is one of the cool things about living in LA is easy access to these on screen legends.

Cars vs Snow, Merry Christmas!

Probably my last post until after Christmas. I’m chilling out with the Family in Pensacola, so not much time to blog, but here are a few videos from those not chill’n out in Florida…snowy crashes…

All good things must come to an end, like the Samurai Speed GT-R

Hundred launch control launches on a 600hp mid 10 second AWD monster. The only surprise to me is how strong the tranny must be to put up with that much abuse for so long!

BMW X6 = Dog Purse

BMW X6, A Sporty Dog Purse

BMW X6, A Sporty Dog Purse


I was talking with my buddies Matthew and Josh and all three of us agree the the BMW X6 is supremely sexy, but there is just something about it I just can’t get past. How can you buy an SUV of that size and still not be able to comfortably transport a real dog? (You know like a Golden Retriever) Then I realized I understood the X6 at last. It’s designed to be sexy and oddly wrong, leading me to the above.

Yoshi the GT-R takes on a Nitrous Corvette Rental

Well, as promised the video is finally out, I gave the keys to my car to Garage419, told them I didn’t want to know what they would do with it so long as Matt spanked Gene. Wishes came true

:-)

R35 GT-R vs Ducati 1098, “Goodbye Mr. Motorbike”

So I own both, a GT-R and a sportbike, so I can vouch for what they are identifying as the differences. Autocar does a phenomenal job of explaining how the two vehicles attack the track differently, though I have to admit the outcome was a bit of a surprise for me.

3 Reasons Why The New GT-R SUCKS!

So Emil and I swapped cars for a weekend. Me? I took his 997 GT3 to Malibu trying to get him a colelction of speed camera tickets in the Canyons.  Him?  Took my GT-R to a drag strip (really? Not even a road course?).  We each learned a little about each other’s cars.  For me, it’s that Porsche doesn’t make a proper racing seat for a Big Whopper ass like mine. For Emil, well click the link to read his review….

PS look for video in two days from Garage419 as they pit my car against a Nitrous rental…. Can’t wait to see the outcome.
