Supra Loses a Door at 185mph at TX2K12

Since the year 2000, there has been an event going on called the TX2K.  It was initially intended as a drag racing event for Toyota Supras, but quickly grew into a thrilling cornucopia of insanely fast cars, including many, many exotics. This year I have a friend that went to it, which I’m hoping to steal some pictures and video from in the future.  Until then, here is a video of a Toyota Supra losing a door at about 185mph.

The same guy that posted that video also has some amazing Supra dyno pull videos where 800 horsepower seems to be the minimum. Absolutely. Sick.

Supercharged Trailblazer SS

One vehicle that is often underrated, and almost unnoticed in traffic is the Trailblazer SS.  They came with 6.0L LS2’s under the hood that pushed nearly 400 horsepower through the AWD drivetrain.  In stock form these things are sick.  Stuff a supercharger under the hood of one, and you have yourself a gigantic load of fun, especially in a large empty parking lot.

Oh and by the way, these run low 14 second second quarter mile times in stock form, and 11’s at 120mph with this supercharger strapped on. I would link to the video, but it’s got some questionable language in it, so…I’ll let you hunt that one down yourself.

Can’t see the video? Here is the link:

Automotive Sheep Cyclone Spotted

It’s no secret that when you mix vehicles and excitable farm animals, you can nearly guarantee yourself a great youtube video (and entertaining car blog). Today, for all of you animal/automotive lovers out there, we have just that. It’s a sheep cyclone, no… a sheep… tornado! I cannot even begin to imagine why these sheep decided to create a such a whirlwind around this car, but I know a humorous situation when I see it. Enjoy!

Nissan 350Z Highway Wreck

It isn’t often that a real life car wreck between two pretty nice cars gets caught on camera and posted for the world to see. Unfortunately for these Nissan 350Z drivers, it did. I recommend that BEFORE you watch the video, you mute your volume. Then watch it over again with the volume up. I did this and it gave me two totally different views on what exactly happened here. Whatever the case may be, it looks like they both need quite a bit of work before they are shiny again.

Want to see the aftermath?  You can see the Black 350Z Here and the Silver 350Z Here and Here. Not pretty, that’s for sure. Click them while you still can!

Journey WRX: A WRX Journey

Over on VWVortex, there is never a lack of greatness being posted from people that are far more creative and talented than myself. This video is from one of those posts.  From what I have gathered, the creator of the video’s friend (did I lose you there?) bought a Subaru WRX, but that isn’t his only claim to fame.  He can also tear up a basketball court like he invented the dang Reebok Pumps. Naturally, the two friends decided to combine these two passions into one cinematic adventure that strangely makes me want to purchase something at the end.  I just can’t decide whether I want some classic Air Jordan’s, or a new WRX.  In any case, it is amazing what a couple of talented folks can do behind a camera.  A simple idea turns into something that could easily be a great TV advertisement for……. something I have yet to decide. Well done!

Diablo in the Snow.

Normally I have absolutely nothing nice to say about winter. However, watching this video of a guy in a Lambo did remind me, that I do in-fact enjoy the heck out of some snowy parking lots. RWD, FWD, AWD, it just doesn’t matter.  Spinning around in circles, and pretending you are Ken Block for a few minutes before the police show up, makes you feel like a true champion. Doing it in a Lamborghini, well, that is probably even better, though I will likely never know.

A Cruise Through Boston’s Zakim Bridge & Tunnels At Night

Have you ever wanted to see what Boston’s “Big Dig” looks like these days? Have you been dreaming of seeing the Zakim bridge at night?  Have you been wondering what do with the next 4 minutes of your  life?  Well, if you answered yes to any of the previous questions, I have the video of your dreams.  See, a friend, of mine has been recently testing out what he can and cannot do with his GoPro HD 960P camera, and in the process has come up with some pretty nifty footage of the surrounding areas.  He then adds some sweet beats, and WHAMO! entertainment for us. I have absolutely no doubt that there is more cool video in our future, as he is just getting started.  Sadly, unlike A Rendezvous In Paris, there is no beautiful girl at the end of this ride. Fingers crossed for next time.
