Surely it’s reporting like this that gives evidence to how wild his claims are? I don’t know about you but there are numerous nuggets of information in this article that makes this special to me.
Hold on. Hennessey makes a huge claim to the motoring world, no one treats it with any real skepticism or scrutiny. We take the time to really question what he said and do the research.
For a while now, the next big goal in the never-ending quest for speed has been to hit 300 mph in a road car. The race to break that barrier has been heating up lately, with Koenigsegg’s average 278 mph record-setting run in Nevada demonstrating just how close we are. Bugatti might have something to say about it too.…
That’s our 2012 Mia, a French electric car with F1-style center driving position. https://www.lanemotormuseum.org/collection/cars/item/mia-2012 It made a fantastic camera/chase car. I also use it to run errands.
For some reason, just because I always seem to seek out slow, miserable, painful failures of cars to drive on Jason Drives, the idea has gotten around that I like to drive slow, miserable, painful failures of cars. That’s only half true. While I do, perversely, like that, I also like driving things that are, you know,…
Ha ha ha! I loved my Casio G-Shock. I bought that in 1983 and was still wearing it proudly (and without a scintilla of irony) a year later.

How about a bumper sticker?
“pop-up headlights, unhinged turbo engines and stereo equalizers with sliders”
Those sunglasses are all wrong. These however are perfect.
I think you can still get these cassette tape MP3 players which came out more than a decade ago. No idea if they can handle the big SD cards of today though;
Reasonably priced, frameless window sedans need to make a return.
Yes, but in the 80s you could get a nissan bluebird SSS R. Complete with 4-point harnesses and a rollbar blocking the back seats.
“Morty was the greatest garbageman that ever lived in the history of New York City. He could push an International Harvester garbage truck to a top speed of 185 MPH, while still being able to execute a 360º turn in 1-1/2 truck lengths. And with his two partners, Jesus and Martín, he could complete a 9 hour garbage run…
I found footage of a full-power speed test:
In Rancho Palos Verdes, an affluent suburb of Los Angeles, there’s a 7,800 square foot mansion that sits atop a picturesque bluff, offering sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean. Across two stories, the home contains six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a three-car garage, and privacy. Google Maps doesn’t offer a streetview…
“You can’t know where you’re going until you know where you’ve been” is the kind of lame, sing-song fortune cookie saying you get from time to time in lieu of an actual fortune. And while on most days, I think it’s merely a hokey way of reminding people that the past is important, when it involves two very special…
Ryan, you have done a great job covering the issues with FF for quite some time...it’s been great reading!
