I’m not a big drift fan, but I have the biggest, dumbest grin on my face right now. Huge sedan drifting is the best.
In Southeast Ohio this is something too common to make the morning news. I’m likely related to someone that has done this.
From what my friend has said about their 675LT and P1 with pretty high miles, you have to literally drive a McLaren daily. It’s not like a Ferrari where you can put 500 miles on a year and it’ll still run perfectly. Plus, why wouldn’t you daily drive it. All supercars depreciate about the same value and mileage…
I have a close friend who had a 12c and now has a p1, and another close friend who is an instructor at the McLaren school at Sonoma Raceway. The reliability has definitely improved a bit since the 12c, but they still have quite a few issues (the sport series cars at least dont have the high maintenance hydraulic…
If being rich means no modified cars or liquor, I’ll happily stay poor.
I went to that car show too. Rather a good one:
What sort of amazing rockstar reality are you living if you can say “A Lagonda. So what?”
I agree with Raph.
Jason’s craft would be so cool that even if it failed and we began to drown, we’d probably just look at each other in our final moments (likely at the bottom of the sea trying to walk in a bubble made of knitted-together lizard stomachs) and say “Ah well, at least this thing was freaking awesome!”
Truthfully. They were made to get the intake out of the dust of vehicles in convoy. There were water based uses for them obviously (especially militarily), but they were popularized because of their ability to keep the filters and bowls from getting clogged with dust.
Snorkels were invented for dust, not water.
Team Chicken (and Rally Chicken is definitely a chicken) takes no pleasure in this wanton destruction of duckie. RIP duckie. You were cute.
This reminds me of a story. In my youth, my folks had a sweet 1985 Ford Bronco that was tan and brown. It was the poverty trim level, so straight six, manual transmission, and rubber floors instead of carpets. That thing was awesome. We took a summer trip from our home in UT to Hermosa Beach in CA. On one of the…
Me in public VS me at home
RIP Rest in Peace ducky. You were Stefs rally ducks lost Japanese sibling.
RIP Dash Duck. We hardly knew ye.
You want geese. Lots and lots of...um,geese.
The front badge, man. That thing was real cloisonné enamel, not resin. A lot of care went into that car (and an LS, both Nissan and Toyota were really really serious at the time).
Yup, miss mine every day. Was probably the best car that I ever owned. Drove it to 257,000 miles. Minimal maintenance. Just power, comfort, and reliability.
My MIL had 97 or 98 Q45t with the 4.1L V8. Comfortable car, plenty of space, good on the highway. I drove it on occasion, but the most seat time I ever got was a run from Chicago (ish ...okay, technically like Naperville) to Des Moines IA for my (now wife’s) college graduation.
It wasn’t a torque monster, so stop and…
My daughter bought one of these for her first car in high school. She’s been away at college in Boston so it serves as the emergency wheels for us here. I call it the Yakuza Cruzer and try to imagine myself having the guts to spend $50k on a Japanese luxury car in 1994.
