Whenever you combine Jeeps and sand pits, you end up with a touch of danger and a whole lot of awesomeness. This video, which is truly unmatched on several levels, will prove exactly that. It also proves that Grand Cherokees can elegantly fly through the air just like the General Lee once did. Well done boys, well done.
Race car driver or not the law is the law and must be abided by. Kyle Busch went to court on Tuesday from the violation that he had received on May 24th while taking a Lexas sports car out for a test drive with his wife.During his test ride Kyle was clocked at 128-mph in a 45-mph zone which was in a residential area in Mooresville N.C.
Kyle reported to N.C. district court for Iredell County, where he pleaded no contest to careless and reckless driving. Judge H. Thomas Church, gave Busch a 30 day suspended jail sentence in which if Kyle doesn’t receive any other driving infractions within a year he will not have to go to jail.
He also lost his license for 45 days, had to pay a $1000.00 fine and was ordered to do 30 hours of community service with the B.R.A.K.E.S teen safe driving program.
Kyle apologized for his actions and said that “Obviously I had a lack of judgement and just made a mistake”.
If you have ever hung out in a garage before, you know that seating is usually limited to old wheels, plastic crates, and cold concrete. While this concept may seem crazy to some, the reasoning for this is quite valid. Floor space in garages is extremely valuable, and it should not be wasted with non-tools, parts, or vehicles.
GREAT NEWS THOUGH! There is a solution that is logical, comfortable, and down right decorative! I found this amazing idea posted by “Outcast99″ on Killbillet.com and was instantly filled with jealousy. You basically grab an old truck bed from your back yard, a nearby field, a scrap yard, or the woods, and start cutting. Once the bed is commandeered, you begin the project by cutting the sides and floor out of the bed. You then weld the front to the back with only a couple inches of space between the front of the bed and the tailgate. Next up, you add a metal base made from the scrap steel you have under your workbench. Before long, you have sweet folding seating for up to 2 adults or possibly 3 lovely ladies! When you need the extra space, you simply kick your friends out and fold the tailgate up. How cool is that? Jealous yet?
Pictures borrowed from Outcast99’s build thread HERE
I’m not sure that this picture does justice for the ungodly size of the wheels and tires on this truck. In person, this truck is massive, and disturbingly awesome. The tire size was claiming 22.5 inch, and I’d agree. The rear differential must have weighed about 800 pounds, and the brake drums looked big enough to stop a large locomotive. I’m not sure who’s idea this was, but they deserve a high 5 and a free sandwich or something for pulling it off. Just gawk at the rear tire for a while and let me know what you think.
If you are going for the ’55 gasser look, you’ll want to first get some advice from this guy because he has clearly got it locked down. The headlights and the rear quarter work are really what seal the deal for me. A…mazing.
When the dust settled during the green-white-checkered finish, it was Marcos Ambrose who scored his first Sprint Cup Series win on the Watkins Glen road course.
Ambrose made his move through “the bus stop” passing Brad Keselowski in the blue deuce. Ambrose was in the lead and Keselowski was second when the final caution came out which froze the field.
The accident that brought out the caution was when Boris Said hit the rear quarter panel of David Ragan’s machine sending it into David Reutimann’s car which ping-ponged across the track, flipped over and exploded into a thousand pieces.
Greg Biffle had enough of Boris Said, and expressed his opinion on the track towards Boris, which in turn infuriated Said. After the race Boris stormed over to Greg Biffle looking to settle the score. He was restrained by Biffle’s crew.
When interviewed after the race Greg Biffle said, that this isn’t the first time that Boris hasn’t given any room to the full-time Sprint Cup Series drivers on the track, and he has caused wrecks on the carousel before. He also stated that instead of showing up at his hauler that Boris should have went to see if David Reutimann was okay first.
This made the already angry road course driver even more mad, and Boris stated that if he sees Biffle that he was going to even the score.
Oh yah…. last week Brad Keselowski won with a broken ankle, and this week he came in second driving a road course of all places with a broken ankle and severe pain in his back from the crash he was involved in during testing a week before.
Who says that watching cars go around in circles is boring!
When I first spotted this at a car show, it felt so wrong, and yet… oh so right. I instantly realized that all of these years that I have watched patiently as my toaster added crispy deliciousness to my bread, I had totally overlooked its true calling. The toaster wasn’t intended to further cook my already-cooked dough. Oh no! This baby was dipped in chrome at the toaster factory for a very different and specific purpose. A toaster’s destiny is to be inside a car! My life was forever changed. Toasting bread, bagels, and english muffins would never, nor could ever, be the same again. Do your thing toaster, it’s what you were always meant to be.
