It always hurts to see a fellow car enthusiast’s hard work go down, but sometimes there’s nothing that you can do but watch as thousands of dollars and countless hours of work plow right into a fence.
This time, it isn’t a Ford Mustang like we’re used to (sorry Mustang guys), but rather a Chevrolet Camaro whose driver get’s a little bit too skinny pedal happy and ends up losing control.
We watch as the Camaro rolls out of the local cars and coffee, laying into the gas pedal and not letting out until it’s too late as the car fades out of our vision and plows into an immovable object.
The camera man caught up with the aftermath and we have to say that the scene isn’t a pretty one as a fairly extensive amount of damage was done. Luckily, the driver wasn’t banged up too bad, though.
Take a look at the footage captured in the video below. The owner says that he plans on having the car back together again for an event later this summer.
These days on the web, lots of people arguing back and forth will provide some turmoil but amongst all of the negative, there are still some positive and inspirational stories out there. With something as seemingly simple as a video of changing a tire, we found ourselves to be completely motivated.
Now, as you could probably imagine, this isn’t just any old tire change. For YouTuber, Tisha UnArmed, she manages to head out and get to the task without arms. Even though she starts off with a handicap that would seem to completely prevent someone from carrying out this task, she won’t let this obstacle deter her in the least.
With a little bit of guidance from important people in her life, Tisha gets down to it, using the best of what she has to remove the wheel and tire from her car and replace it with another. If she can do this, then you surely can get over whatever obstacle it is that’s facing you these days.
Check out the video below that allows Tisha to show off exactly how she would go about getting such a job done. Even when the road seems to have many twists and turns, with enough determination you can do anything!
If you head out to the drag strip, you’re bound to see all sorts of different creations making their way down the track. There’s always a different twist with each time you head out and we definitely mean that because pretty much everybody brings everything down to the quarter-mile to see how it will do, whether it’s built for the racing surface or not. With that in mind, it’s not too common that you’ll see a dually make its way down the track and certainly not one like this. Generally, if that happens, it’s just somebody looking to see what their factory powered machine can do but not this time.
This time, we check out a Cummins powered Dodge Ram that is able to really scoot as it gets rid of the pair of tires in the back and uses the wide stance to the fullest extent, stuffing a big, fat slick under the rear end. This certainly isn’t like anything that we’ve ever seen before and we were kind of shocked to see it making its way up to the starting line at Maryland International Raceway, smoking the tires and getting ready to race. Honestly, we really weren’t quite sure what to expect here and the results are really enough to make you think twice about racing one of these things if it pulls up next to you at the light.
Follow along in the video below as this thing is able to smash its way into the 12-second range with ease. In the grand scheme of things, 12s might not be the fastest that you’ve ever seen hit the strip but when you consider all other factors, that’s not too bad for a truck that has to weigh a ton. After you see this thing roll down the strip for yourself, be sure to tell us what you think of the heavyweight as it manages to pack a punch in a straight line. It’s not too often that you see something like this so be sure to keep your eyes peeled because it all happens mighty quickly!
You would think that this had happened enough by now for people to have learned not to do it, but for whatever reason, it just keeps happening.
At Cars And Coffee in Houston, the owner of this gorgeous red Viper was making his way out of the venue and decided to throw down on the throttle and let the monster V10 engine loose for the crowd of onlookers. While we can certainly understand the temptation to put on a show for the people watching, who definitely do their own part to try to get the drivers to show out, we can’t wrap our heads around how often these drivers lose control of their cars. Almost on cue, the tail of the Viper slides out to the left and the car spins almost 180 degrees before slamming into the curb with a sickening thud.
The crowd, all of whom thankfully were out of harms way, immediately began laughing at the driver, who was unharmed in the crash. The reaction from the spectators seems a little excessive considering what had just happened, but we also understand their response after having seen countless videos of this happening. You really can’t help but laugh at the guy, who’s almost certainly seen at least a few of these videos, becoming the star of his own clip.
As far as the car itself, the damage looks to be pretty severe. The drivers side front wheel was knocked completely off the car and the rear end was most likely knocked out of center when the rear wheel stuck the curb. It’s hard to say what else was hurt on the car, but it seems inevitable there is a good bit more damage underneath the car.
Hopefully this driver learned his lesson, and maybe some of you can take away a little knowledge from this too. We understand that desire to be the star of a viral video, but you don’t want it to be for something like this.
When it comes to the way that trucks are built today, they’re certainly nothing like what they used to be. While, once upon a time, the genre might’ve been constructed with the only goal in mind to get work done, these days, it’s certainly nothing of the sort as they have really been put together with a nice touch, taking the concept of being completely dedicated to work and flipping it on its head, taking everything that you knew about the pickup truck and refining it until we get what we see today where trucks are outfitted with just about anything that you would expect to see in a high-end luxury car and then some.
This time, thanks to the crew over at Triple-X Motorsports, we get to take a nice close look at the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado, a truck that they think might be the best one yet. Not only is this thing offered up with some of the most impressive features that we have seen in a pickup truck to date but because Peter’s Elite Auto has also taken the liberty of strapping it up with some extravagant features, it looks even better as it’s been lifted up a little bit and some Specialty Forged wheels are put on it to bring the look together. After getting a couple of glimpses of the truck, we can certainly say that’s a head turner, to say the least!
If you follow along with the video below, you’ll be able to get a whole range of shots that outline exactly what the 2018 Silverado is all about. If you would classify yourself as a truck fan, I would be so inclined to say that the current day and age of trucks is definitely a good time to be alive and ready to go out there with some four-wheel-drive beneath you. After getting the full rundown on this 2018 Silverado, be sure to tell us what you think of this shining set of wheels.
The Chevrolet Corvette is a very capable and surprisingly cheap sports car. A Stingray with 460-horsepower and a 0-60 mph time of 3.7 seconds will only set you back just over $55,000. Unfortunately, that makes it a relatively affordable high-speed getaway car for criminal activities. Recently, a suspect in a rented red Corvette led police on a high-speed chase through Florida streets and escaped custody. The Corvette comfortably outruns cops on the ground, but no matter how fast your sports car is you can never outrun a helicopter.
Video footage shows the Corvette driving erratically, running through red lights, driving on the wrong side of the road, mounting the median to overtake traffic, and knocking over cones at a construction site. According to WKMG News, the chase started after Florida’s Volusia County Sheriff’s Office made seven arrests in an undercover drug operation.
Deputies spotted the driver of the Corvette “involved in some suspicious activity” and made a traffic stop, but the driver took off at “high rates of speed” almost hitting other cars. The driver pulled into an apartment complex and bailed out and fleed on foot. Police attempted to track the suspect using the helicopter’s FLIR thermal imaging camera, but were unable to find him as he hid under some trees, successfully evading police. A stolen gun, marijuana, heroin, and money was found inside the abandoned Corvette. Another chase that erupted as part of the same drug operation had a more successful conclusion.
The police helicopter tracked a speeding car until the driver and passenger bailed out and ran on-foot. Fortunately, the chopper was able to direct officers to the driver who was trying to hide in an apartment complex.
For most of us owning a Lamborghini is a car we spend years saving for or years dreaming about so when people like the guy in this video are snow drifting and going nuts in such a high priced beauty it is almost hurts to watch!From drifting to taking out part of a snow bank the owner of this car obviously has the cash to backup the way he is driving his Lambo! Check him out in the video below!
I was at a loss for a starting point as far what what to say first about this Rolls Royce, so I figured why not start up front? No, no at the trademark Rolls grill, but at the large intercooler mounted out in of it. If that doesn’t give you a hint as to what’s coming, just look a little farther back, where the long, expansive hood has been sliced up to make room for the pipes running from said intercooler to the carbureted engine. Bolted to the other end of the intercooler, the piping that sends the air from the turbocharger into the aforementioned intercooler and engine. All of this in the first few feet of the Rolls, but there’s ohhhh so much more in store.
Moving to the back, there’s an intake. “Intakes go on the engine, Taco!” you say? Normally, yes. But this is a totally different type of intake, this one more like what might be found on an aircraft. You see, the radiator had to be relocated to make room for the turbo setup, so where better to move it than the trunk. Of course, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out there’s no airflow in the trunk, and that’s kind of a key factor in having a radiator effectively radiate. That’s where the intake comes in.
Cut in the side of the rear fender is a large hole, but to make sure air really flows through the hole and over the fins of the radiator, there’s a large, boxy intake that scoops air from the outside and blows in down through a custom duct and over the radiator, which happens to be out of a Toyota Supra.
Beneath the radiator, a large fuel cell hangs precariously beneath the trunk, carrying enough gas to send the car a few miles down the road to the next filling station.
Believe it or not, that isn’t all the surprises awaiting our favorite Virgin, Parker Nirenstein, from the YouTube channel Vehicle Virgins. We’re not going to give away all the fun, you have to hit that play button below to watch and see for yourself what else this Rolls Royce has to throw at Parker.
Eerily, there is not much drama in this little video, released today by the good folks over at Koenigsegg. Noise, yes. Lots of it good. Thunderous. Pleasing.
Though eerie because the footage showcases the Agera RS racing up to 284.55mph in Nevada.
Remember last month when Koenigsegg claimed five speed records along a section of closed road? Yeah, this is the onboard footage of the highest speed run of the day, the Agera RS hitting 457.94kmh.
This was achieved during its north-westerly run, from the Las Vegas end of Nevada toward Pahrump. The south-easterly run clocked 271.19mph, meaning it averaged out at 277.87mph.
That of course, makes the Koenigsegg Agera RS the fastest production car in the world.
The other records you can read about here, which includes the fact that the RS smashed Bugatti’s 0-249mph-0 time (by eight seconds). In any case, the footage above would never suggest that driver Niklas Lilja was gunning for an outright top speed. More a Sunday drive.
Like we said, eerie…
Tim Allen’s 1968 Camaro 427 COPO. Did you know Tim Allen is a car guy? Check out the muscly Camaro of his teenaged dreams, exquisitely upgraded with a 505 hp 427 and lots of other great stuff by Allen and Bodie Stroud. Get ready for an awesome burnout…
Lamborghini has finally joined the ranks of the competition in the recent and rather confusing trend of supercar manufacturers deciding that they want to get in on the SUV market. It’s definitely something that has managed to polarize the community and the latest release is absolutely no different as Lamborghini has recently rolled out their very own machine that’s pushing the envelope on the market and really getting us excited to see how this thing is going to perform when it gets the opportunity to make waves against the competition.
Here are the specifics:
The machine that will be known as the Lamborghini Urus will be powered by a bi-turbo Volkswagen based v8 cranking out 641 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque, a pretty insane number when it comes to what you normally see out of performance SUVs. Backing that up is an 8-speed transmission that will help that power get to the ground and four-wheel-steering is thrown into the mix with an air suspension just to make things more interesting. All factors considered, this thing is stacking up to pretty intense and is already making waves in the performance community.
However, as with most big releases, the court of public opinion isn’t necessarily all on the same page. In fact, we’ve stumbled upon just as many people who seem to be in lust with this thing as people who are wondering exactly what Lamborghini is thinking! By taking one look at this thing, I don’t think that it’s necessarily surprising that the SUV has garnered a love-or-hate consensus among fans. Check out the video below and, when combining it with all of the nuts and bolts backing this thing up, be sure to tell us what you think is in store for the Lambo that will let you bring the whole family along! Don’t be shocked to see this at a country club near you in the very near future!
When you’re the proud owner of a hot rod that’s pretty crazily modified, you can’t help but want to show it off. After all, all of that hard work coming together is something to be proud of, something that the car community around you would certainly love to check out and a place like Cruisin Weekend would seem like the venue to do it. However, for Brandon Good, the owner of this Chevrolet Malibu, this passion for his automobile would come crashing down hard at this year’s Cruisin’ Ocean City car show, an event that centers around the city’s convention center but also has enthusiasts spreading out throughout the entire town with countless muscle cars, imports, and just about everything else that would draw the attention of a gear head, for the entire extended weekend.
Most of the time, the major storyline is how strict the police are going to be with enforcing vehicle codes and this time most of the talk around town would be about one black Malibu whose owner would seem to really get the short end of the stick. Most of the time, police officers tend to look the other way at these kinds of infractions as long as the cars are staying within the law and not speeding around town. From my perspective of someone who has frequented the show for years, many times, they will look the other way for this weekend as they understand that the hot rod enthusiasts that come to town really provide a major hike for business. It has even been publicly stated that Wawa, one of the weekend’s hot spot in this major summer vacation destination, has managed to scribble some record weekends in the books thanks to the show and its supporters.
This time, however, the police would come out with a vengeance, apparently, picking this Malibu out of the crowd and chalking up a book of citations before putting it on a tow truck and forcing the owner to go and retrieve it out of impound before stacking it on his trailer and heading home. The owner tells us that he “just got into town about two hours before that and drove across the street to Wawa to get food and hang out.”
This is when the video would start rolling as the car would be surrounded by nine officers that would escort the vehicle around the corner for inspection. When all was said and done, the Brandon tells us that the police told him that the car was “too dangerous to be there and [he] could have an equipment malfunction and run people over.. and it draws too much of a crowd.” This was followed up by being given an inspection which Brandon says isn’t even valid due to classic vehicle laws that makes cars this old exempt from inspection. The officers conducting the investigation would proceed to rip him off a stout nine tickets, anyway, said Good. He was told that if he proceeded to drive it in town again that he would be arrested.
We reached out to the Ocean City Police Department for comment and have yet to hear a response. This is definitely a story that we would love to hear your opinion on.
