Ok, so I was trying to relate this clip to cars.... also demonstrates why you need a car that starts right up every time.
So, most of us would probably chill out for a while and nurse our wounds if we were ejected from a high speed vehicle. But not this guy. Nope. He still manages to
run jog from police after a little stumble. Was he drunk or just running on shattered bones? I don’t know.
So I saw this commercial for the first time today. It makes me cringe, in a laughing sort of way. I’m not going to say why. Just watch and see what you think. And weigh in.
Come on, people. Do we put car parts on our dogs or our horses? I’ve never seen a horse with a spoiler on the rear. So don’t hang horse sized privates on the back of your truck.
It’s a 1991 Lotus Elan. I stopped to look at it, just out of curiosity. I looked it up, and found out that it is the only FWD car that Lotus has made. Doesn’t make a lot of horsepower, but also only weighs in the low 2000’s. Fair price?
Just watch the spectators cower and flinch as their inner ears are destroyed by this “exhaust note”. I call it an exhaust amplifier. Be sure to turn the sound way up for a more realistic experience.
Tesla P85D. Yeah that’s a pretty fast electric car.
The only three reasons I can think of are the following:
I still had to drive to another state, so I had to rent a 2015 Hyundai Veloster for a week! Ordered new shocks for both L and R rear. The flange (ring?) that holds the bottom of the spring broke off on the passenger side.
In a controversial move, Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) president Michael Larsen has announced that the spec Miata racing series will be phased out by the end of 2015. Even more shocking is what it will be replaced by.
Like hitting an empty soda can with a hammer.
For some reason, I find glowing brakes fascinating to watch. I can't quite place the reason, but it's somewhere in between "Fire!" and "car's kinetic energy being dissipated by infrared and visible light energy!"
It's almost as if the ol' E34 wagon was protesting with unusual creaking and squeaking noises. So I let the car have some fun in the snow with the "asc" off. :)
I've always thought that the rear-opening hoods looked cooler. Also, a rear-opening hood will not fly up into your line of sight and possibly smash your windshield if there is a latch failure at speed. As far as working on things under the hood, I haven't noticed a significant difference between the two. Please weigh…
This looks like a fun twist on the drag racing theme. You go as fast as you can and then have to immediately brake for a turn. The only thing I would change is the starting position. The outside lane seems to have the clear disadvantage in traction.
After reading Jason Torchinsky's Jalopnik post about modern cars replacing spares with run-flat tires I began thinking. Who benefits from this? Do the majority of car consumers prefer run-flats over spares? Or do car companies prefer run-flats so that the space where tools and a spare would traditionally be can be…
I believe it was last year that I stumbled upon "spectator drags" videos on Youtube. I had never seen this before and they are very entertaining to watch. It's like a drag race but in a 1-lap oval. Genius. It must be a New England thing from what I can gather. Here's a good video of edge-of-your-seat action…
Well, I visited the North American International Auto Show on Friday in Detroit. My 1st time visiting Detroit, and it was a good trip. You may be over-saturated with pictures from the show, as there have been numerous articles on Jalopnik on this theme. However! Maybe I got some angles not previously posted or cars…
