Today is Earth Day, and rather that polluting your eyes and ears with awesome videos of supercharged big block muscle cars doing smokey burnouts, we are going to give the electric cars their chance to shine. So, without further adieu, I present to you an electric Porsche 914 and a Corbin Sparrow/Myers Motors NmG (a.k.a. “Tweety Bird”) burnout video for your enjoyment. If you have one to share, post it up! Also, don’t litter.

If you have an expensive car, you should always invest in expensive ramps to get it into and out of large transport trucks. Heck, maybe even go as far as to get a high-end transport company to do the work for you. Somewhere Ferdinand Porsche is watching, totally unimpressed by the engineering of such an event.

…..or maybe he stuck it too much? Great car, big jump, rough landing no matter how you look at it.

Have you ever seen a commercial and just wanted to watch it over and over again? Recently, I was cruising around Reddit and saw this posted up by thesauce25. It is a commercial for Shell gasoline, with the help of Ferrari race cars racing through the city streets. The sounds coming from the cars are incredible.

Now you are probably thinking to yourself “yes, that was quite wonderful for my eyes, ears, and soul, but I still want more.” » Continue reading more of this post…
First off, LS series engines are a new obsession of mine. Secondly, I just so happen to own a Subaru Impreza. So, it seems fitting that I post up a video of an LS engine swapped Subaru. The video claims LS-2, but I think it’s actually a cast iron 6.0L LQ4. Be sure to crank your volume way up for this one. It sounds delish.

In the early 1980’s quite a few manufacturers wanted to get into the rally racing game, and Volvo was one of them. Naturally they needed to produce a car that had some kind of chance of fitting into that scene. So, they came out with a turbocharged 240 that made just a tick over 150 horsepower and about 175 ft lbs of torque. This was sort of the “base” for the special edition racing versions that would come out shortly after with double the horsepower and torque. » Continue reading more of this post…
One of the reasons that I love cars from the 1940’s & 50’s so much is because they were still full of crazy ideas. People weren’t afraid to think outside the box to try to make life easier. If somebody decided that driving on 3 wheels was better than 4, poof, a new 3 wheeled vehicle arrived on the scene. You want your high beam headlights to dim when another car is driving at you, poof, done! You want an extra wheel to pop out of your trunk and help you parallel park, poof……wait, huh? » Continue reading more of this post…
