Top 5 Cars to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse!!! (results may vary)

Danny's "Top Gear post-apocalypse" blog got me thinking about other forms of apocalypse.  There's the nuclear kind which is nicely displayed in the videos.  The Mayans predict an "end of days" in 2012.  Danny Choy's fire hurricane is always just off the horizon.  Then there's the kind that seems just as far fetched yet more entertaining... THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!!!

Killer B (part 2)

While Group B rally had some amazing drivers, it was the cars that made WRC so spectacular at the time.  More often than not the drivers were just along for the ride and some didn't make it out alive.  The following are the fire-breathing monsters that crisscrossed the world in the mid-80s for global supremacy on dirt, snow, and asphalt.

Here's some music to get you in the mood first:

Racing Sequences of Steve McQueen's 1971 movie, "Le Mans."

Hope everyone's been having a good weekend so far!

Negative Camber: GM week.

This is not a coincidence.

The Chevrolet Volt has just been awarded "Motor Trend," "Green Car Journal" and "Automobile Magazine's" 2011 car of the year. Then, in perfectly synchronized timing, General Motors returns, Camaro convertible entrance and all, to NYSE.

Never trust those back markers.

This was 2008:
The party crasher: Glock

... and what about last week?
The party crasher: Petrov

Funny how both occasions could've/should've/would've been Ferrari's moment.

Tackle land, water and air with the Halo Intersceptor!

Of course, only if you have a driver's license, nautical license, aircraft license, and insurance for all three...

Death and taxes, my friends. Death. And Taxes.

And let's just hope you won't have to deal with this:

Geez, why am I so pessimistic about personal air travel?

Killer B (Part 1)

Being a twenty-something, technology has always been prevalent in everyday life.  Growing up with two older brothers and an uncle who always had the latest gadgets meant hand-me-downs like Apple IIs, Walkmans, and Atari.  Today, everyone has an Ipod, cell phone, and/or a GPS at any given time.  Sadly, this type of technological proliferation has made its way into racing.  Today, races are won by complex launch control, traction control, anti-lock brakes, computer aided design, and computational fluid dynamics.  What ever happened to simple "run what you brung" racing?  It's time to revisit those days when victory could be achieved by big wings, big turbos, and big cojones.
