Why are wagons undoubtedly the best vehicle? Watch and find out.

In this week’s 1A Auto Talk & Tune Video, Dan and I discussed the many reasons why wagons are the future, and why everyone needs one. Between the obvious good looks, terrific engine options, incredibly spacious interiors, and low insurance costs, wagons are the best kept secret in the automotive world. They hold enough people to call it a party, they can substitute for a camper, they are low enough to wash the roof of without a step ladder, and are nearly always filled with luxurious options. If you don’t already own a wagon, you are going to want to after this video.

One Of The Most Impressive Driving Videos On The Internet

There is no shortage of videos on the internet, especially when it comes to automotive hijinks.  This particular one is several years old now, but it still leads the pack as far as impressive driving goes.  When you combine an ultra light super 7 with a driver that knows what the heck they are doing, it is truly a sight to behold.

Got a more impressive video?  Well, I’d like to see it.

Watching A Lamborghini Crash Is Mostly Just Sad.

Watching a car crash is like, well, watching a car crash. You see the impending doom, time slows down and you start moaning like a zombie. Then the inevitable happens, the car collides with something and your zombie-esque moan turns into a breathy lung exhausting “aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh”.

This video is one of those moments.  You know what’s about to happen from the first rev of the engine. One minute later, the Lamborghini becomes the swirly meat in a giant car sandwich. The only word that comes to mind in this instance is a sarcastic “unprofessional“.  Sorry for your loss of nice bodywork Lambo.

Doing 185 MPH ? on Public Roads

Sometimes people do stupid things. Riding this fast on a public road is most definitely one of them. The video claims 299 kmh, which converts to roughly 185 mph, but some math wizards out there on the internet are claiming more like 135 mph. Regardless of the actual number, I think we can all agree that the rider was clearly not following the rules of the road. Let’s review the facts:

1) The symbol on the upper triple tree is found on a Yamaha R1.

2) R1’s are rumored to be able to reach close to 185 miles per hour. Real life, tire size,  and sprocket sizes will throw these numbers off.

3) The rider likely has some serious seat time considering he/she didn’t get swallowed by the back of a Subaru.

4) The rider is probably more young than old. Helmet cam + zero fear + motorcycle + posting on internet.

So who is this man of mystery? A professional racer? A fearless teenager? Or maybe it just a random guy on a fast bike that was extraordinarily lucky that he didn’t slide himself into a truck at 185 mph that day. Will we ever find out? So many unanswered questions within this video.
