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.

There Is Such A Thing As Too Much Negative Camber

Maybe it’s the minitrucker in me, but I like my wheels to tuck.  Hellaflush? Yea, I can be on board with that too. But this?  This is just getting silly. I can appreciate the work that goes into any car, but this much negative camber leaves me at a loss for words.

Your Wheel Just Fell Off… WAIT WHAT!?!

Have you ever heard somebody proclaim “I’m going to drive this dang car until the wheels fall off!” ?  Well, a friend of mine literally did drive at least 1 wheel off, and he captured that very special moment on video for the world to enjoy.  Luckily for him and his Subaru, he knew something was horribly amiss before the wheel decided to take an early apex without him. He immediately pulled the heck over before the car could begin its full acrobatic yard sale routine. Extremely Lucky!

Note to self: Always film automotive adventures, because you’ll be glad that you did.

Enjoy!

You Like Legos? You Like VW Buses? Well Then You Like This!

Over the last few weeks, I have spent a fair amount of time wrenching on an early 1970′s 1600cc air cooled Volkswagen engine. Before I acquired this relic, it had been sitting for oh… maybe… 20 years or so. Needless to say, it needed a teeny bit o’ lovin’ before hitting the streets again. In the days ahead, I will be tossing it into the back of a 1969 Karmann Ghia, so that my mom & dad will be able to attend Broke Down 2011.  Yes, you read that right.  Anyway… with the VW juices at an all time high this week, it was an absolute pleasure to lay my eyes upon this video posted up on Jalopnik. It instantly reminded me of two things. The first is just how much I loved Legos when I was younger, and secondly, I probably have a TON of Legos buried somewhere in my attic. Hmm. Regardless, whether it is built of fine metals or fresh Legos, watching a vehicle assembled from nothing is always a pleasure to me.  I hope that you thoroughly enjoy the video, as I surely did.
