Three 280ZX’s and a 9 Fo Fo.

When going around town today I spotted some Datsuns parked in front of someone’s house. I had to turn around to get pictures. When I got in front of the house I was amazed at the sight — three 280ZX’s and a maroon 944. I whipped out my camera and got these pictures:






UPDATE: Apparently the red one got in a wreck.

Ebay Find: $7,054.60 in Model Cars

Someone in Fremont, California decided that they could make a great deal of money off his father’s model car collection. The models have a range of $8-$150 value. All but six are still in their boxes. All but one car is American — and that one car is a 1989 Porsche 911 Turbo. As of Oct. 23, 6:00PM EST, there have been 3 bids with the highest being US $1,136.00. The shipping is another US $300.

Free online car magazines? Ooo!

My buddies at http://www.theautounion.net/ have informed me of two free online car magazines. They are called iMotor Magazine and Road Magazine. Both are somewhat new, one of which has four issues and the other seven.

iMotor magazine features high-resolution photos and is interactive if you read it online. The articles are somewhat stubby, not loaded with information, but getting the point across. You can download the entire magazine as a .pdf, however, it loses the interactiveness of it, and the text dissapears, leaving you with a .pdf full of pictures. Issues remain around 30 pages.

Road Magazine has over one hundred pages in their issues, but the image quality is incredibly poor. The articles are longer and more detailed. It is not interactive, and remains quite dull throughout the entire magazine. Road Magazine can also be downloaded in full as a .pdf, but keeps its text.

If you want to read on the go where there may not be internet acess, have a Road Magazine downloaded and ready to go. If you will have internet acess and you’re just bored, stick with iMotor. Or, you could just play it save with the real, solid, material magazines.

In the video, only a short glimpse of the Panamera is shown, along with the Panamera badge on the rear. Regardless, a teaser site for a new Porsche: Awesome.

Dodge Challenger SRT-10 coming to SEMA, I want a Dodge Challenger SRT-10 ACR

Not much to say except that Dodge is bring a modified Challenger with the Viper’s 600hp V10 to SEMA in November. However, I prefer the SRT-10 ACR to the base SRT-10, so with maybe an hour in GIMP and some Mountain Dew, I bring you the Dodge Challenger SRT-10 ACR!

I added an ACR badge, the black roof, black wheels, and splitters. Now if only I can find a good way to stick that stripe in… As you could easily figure out, I’m not the best at photochopping.

Spotted: C5 Corvette Drag Racer

I would have pictures too, but they turned out quite badly. Some performance was done by The Vette Docters for the Red Sled Racing.
