This video is just awesome athletes getting paid by sponsors to enjoy life. Lucky, incredibly talented, bastards


Found on http://thekevinchen.wordpress.com where so many awesome things are found

Rodrigo restored, or built, this 1949 Indian and sidecar, and does a lot of restorations, in Paranavai Brazil


See the whole process of building this Indian, http://www.donivel.com.br/restauracao_fotos.php?numero=22&nome=Motocicleta%20%CDndian%20CHIEFF,%201949 because a restoration would have the original or period correct engine, this has a Honda Magna 750. I don't point that out as a negative. This is awesome work.

For the list of vehicles that Dinivel has restored or repaired to greatness, http://www.donivel.com.br/restauracao.php

Rob Whitworth, I applaud you, this amazing video is intense, amazing and vivid


Found on that astonishing treasure trove http://thekevinchen.wordpress.com

Great car chase scene in a commercial for a cell phone... well, it's better than watching a long movie for the chase scene!


Found on http://thekevinchen.wordpress.com/ along with a ton of other cool stuff that I'll be posting my favorites of next week, I think with Mopars at the Strip, and my coverage of the Vova Las Vegas, plus the two museums I was in last Friday, I'll be busy this weekend

Cool looking Mustang made by getting rid of the hubcaps, and just showing the black rims.





the woman driving this was beautiful too, I should have asked her out after asking all about her rims. Damn, I missed an opportunity there. 

More cool stuff I found at the Viva Las Vegas hot rod show lasts weekend






 I posted a gallery of this car when I saw it at the LA Roadster, or the Grand National Roadster show last year



 I'm curious why the rear fenders are chopped off





 Last of the hand brakes of this type in modern cars? Probably













Lots more coverage of the Viva Las Vegas to come.. I have to crop and size the photos first though

drifting master, Daigo Saito's jump drift

A couple of things that caught my eye at the Viva Las Vegas hot rod show



it says in the dust, Viva or bust



 that is gonna hurt someones chest in a panic stop







 The above Mercury is eerily similar to a DeSoto 5th Avenue
