and by small, i mean only a couple hundred acres. and by close, i mean about 4 miles from home. notice the small plane dropping the red retardant upper right, working with a couple of helicopters dropping water.
well i guess all that Sweedish moose impact testing paid off, since everyone in the vehicle was able to get out. High winds near Georgetown, CO are nothing to fool with.
this is what a $20millionUS Ferrari looks like after driving the Colorado Grand all week
this is the end result of a vehicle rollover on a 75mph interstate- passenger compartment intact. hell, even the driver side window isn’t broken. but no seat belt means the driver was ejected and died. so sad. oh, and the state patrol says it is a Jaguar XKR, if you can’t tell.
just enough accuracy to the visuals to remind me of Fluid Mechanics class back in the day.
so I’m at a local collector car auction and this rolls over the block just before the car I was actually considering. A disposable bid of $3500 by me puts me in the lead. one more bid and holy moly, I’ve got a 94 Mustang GT Convertible with a stick!
oh great googly moogly what have we here?
“Why do you ride?” That’s a question that every motorcyclist has to answer at some point. The answers are as varied as they are clichéd.
I have been obsessed with American muscle for as long as I can remember. I never could get enough of the aggressive throaty American V8 exhaust noise - the kind of noise that pisses off your neighbors and makes people around you look at you with disgust.

In Loving Memory, the new film on the Isle of Man TT, the deadliest race in the world, is so good that it deserves another trailer.
Ducati gets it. Honda is getting it. And now Yamaha nails it. This is the XSR700, the retro-modern roadster based on one of the best bikes in Yamaha’s stable.
At a certain point, you stop being shocked by how many people have died here. The shock is how many are still alive.
I’ve been wanting to post a good how to of this for a while but never seem to have the time. I hope a quick guide will do here. I started making these keys just as a goof but people seem to really get a kick out of them. If done right they will roll around and help spark conversation or just kill boredom on tabletops.
We’ve all seen it: some confrontation, somebody angrily thrusts themselves into their carmobile, puts that bitch in D like they’re opening the gates of Asgard, departs with a ferocious tire chirp. Pro tip: this is not expressing your emotions, it’s making you look like an asshole.
this FF is absolutely filthy and I love it.
TrueDelta's Michael Karesh breaks down risks associated with dealing with the Porsche 996 naturally aspirated, flat-6 engine. He looks at long term reliability studies and has determined that it is not of matter of if this motor will fail, but when. He also provides a nice alternative.
There exists an insane performance value in the used car market, and it's called the Porsche 911 – specifically, the 996 chassis that spanned the years between 1999 and 2004. However, there is a catch: They experience premature engine failure due to a small but integral part of the engine. Here's how to fix it for…
There are few things I love in life more than Steve McQueen movies. And there's nothing else out there that sounds like analog synthesizer music. So when my Giz coworker Andrew Liszewski turned me on to this TRS-80 music video combining the two, I couldn't take my eyes or ears off it.
We want a better Formula 1. Cars at the cutting edge of technology and freakishly skilled drivers to manhandle them. We're not alone. And Niki Lauda has some ideas.
