When I comb through eBay and Craigslist for cars that I can’t have and can’t afford, I’m really looking for two specific things.
1) I want to see barn finds.
2) I want to see race fuel huffing, hell fire spraying, tire-hanging, M/T smoking, YouTube-video-filled listings that make me want to rip the exhaust off my snowblower and hit it with a 100 shot of nitrous.
The Ebay listing I came across today is pretty darn close to an exact match of my second request. It is tough to wrap my brain around it to be honest.
I’ve done a lot of things on motorcycles including jumps, wheelies, rolling burnouts, and donuts, but never have I seen or heard of motorcycle drifting. This is definitely a first for me. As if that isn’t enough for a great video, then they drop a Corvette powered, 2300lb, 3rd Gen RX7 into the mix for official brain mushification. Watch it, stew on it, and let me know what you think.
We’re about a month out from the start of the 53rd annual Daytona 500. With every year that passes and when the green flag drops during the Daytona 500, you can’t help but think of Dale Earnhardt Sr. and what he meant to the sport.

Watching a gross display of horsepower is probably the only thing better than the actual act of building a vehicle with such mouth watering abilities.

Hanging off the back of the all aluminum V8 is a T-56 6-speed manual transmission that sends power out to the 275/40/17’s. This really is a great way to start a Monday. Maybe every monday will begin with a burnout video…. hmmmm.
I don’t have a clue of how this is done, but this is apparently a real drift event filmed through a tilt shift camera. I think it is absolutely awesome, but I don’t have any clue of how it works, which bothers me. That being said, watch it, enjoy it, and then could somebody please explain to me what the heck tilt-shift photography is? I read the wikipedia, and I can’t wrap my head around it. Now all I can think of is the fast talking micro machines guy.
