28’s On Your Wrangler: “Carolina Boi” Edition.

Back in my high school days, installing 20 inch wheels on your truck was a serious endeavor.  We were notching A-arms, trimming wheel wells, rolling fenders, and absolutely ruining our 3-point turning abilities.  These days, 20’s come stock on a bunch of trucks and Jeep Wranglers on eBay are rollin’ on 28’s boi.  I must admit, a Jeep on 28’s seems about as logical as adding bead-locked Super Swampers on a Trans Am, but hey, to each their own.  The first person to post up a Ghost Riding video link gets a free Upvote from me!  8 more pics after the Jump! > (more…)

TITANSILBER METALLIC: 2011 BMW 328Xi

Over the weekend, a good friend of mine bought a stunningly beautiful new 2011 “BMW-Titansilber Metallic”  328Xi.  From the name alone, I had assumed that it was a 3 Series BMW, 2.8L engine , all wheel drive, with fuel injection (that’s what the odd lowercase “i” means believe it or not).  However, it’s a 3.0L!  Apparently the “28” in “328” is a total lie these days.  The other thing that I didn’t know was that I may actually be a fan of BMW’s? Gasp!

Naturally, the first thought in my head was jumping in, turning the key to light the fire in the legendary straight 6, and test out the awd launching  capabilities.  Back in reality,  she handed me the key and I quickly realized that this was not the same technology and luxury that my 1989 Dodge surrounds me in.  The BMW key isn’t a key at all.  In fact, it is a fancy plastic Chicken Mcnugget that plugs into the  dashboard.  (Two of my favorite things by the way – chicken & dashboards.)  Once the Mcnugget is fully latched in, there is a start button that immediately makes you feel like a really big deal.  This button is surrounded (more…)

Stretched Bike vs Vette Powered RX7 Drift Battle.

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.

Remembering Dale Earnhardt

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.

I’ve been to the Daytona 500 many times myself and was fortunate enough to have been at the 1998 Daytona 500 with friends and family when Dale Earnhardt Sr. won. If you weren’t a Dale Earnhardt fan,on that day you were.
