The most amazing vehicles were for sale today at the LA Roadster show and swap meet, wow x 2... vehicle and price combos were astonishing

The Rush truck center (repairs etc) in Fontana... has a full size Peterbilt 60 feet in the air... wow



drifters in practice laps... get into the gravel and give the reporters lots to enjoy!

I think this concludes my notion of ever getting a motorcycle... and certainty that they are collision magnets. Never ride with your kids, that's for damn sure

Best racing video I've seen in a while... clobbered on the green flag, then has to pass the entire field to win, but he DOES it!

Motorcycle riders have a protest ride to the San Diego/Tijuana border crossing.... and no media coverage from any big news organization covers it!

A reservist and veteran Marine (not active duty)  drove from San Diego to Tijuana with guns... yes, that clearly is stupid. Idiotic even... but he's been imprisoned since March, and the USA government and Marines haven't gotten his situation handled satisfactorily yet, though the 5 Gitmo for one US military member trade happened a week ago. WTF?




They’ve been on the road to California for more than a week, led by John Harrington, of Shiner, Texas, who organized the ride. “I have a core group of riders with me,” Harrington said. “We’ve got lots of other riders pledging to ride in.” They want Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi freed.

We’re told Tahmooressi, a veteran who has served two tours and is currently a reservist, called 911 when he couldn’t turn around, but U.S. authorities couldn’t help him because he was already in Mexico. Tahmooressi reportedly made his way to border patrol agents and told them he made a wrong turn. Supporters said he alerted authorities to three guns in his truck that were registered to him, but he was charged with gun running.

Tahmooressi supporters believe the federal government is not doing enough to free him, even though they were willing to release Bergdahl, who they believe deserted his troops before being captured by the Taliban.

GM decides to recall Camaros for an ignition issue... maybe they actually learned their lesson!


The latest recall includes the current edition of the Chevy Camaro, one of the company’s more storied brands and a paragon of what Detroit has always excelled at: delivering a lot of horsepower per dollar. And it’s a pretty big batch of affected cars, too. GM is telling customers to bring in all Camaros made between 2010 and 2014—almost 512,000 cars in all.

 Finally—and most importantly—the newest recalls once again stem from defective ignitions, but this time around the problems are in no way related to the ignition switches that sparked the recall crisis in the first place. The crummy Camaro parts meet all GM engineering requirements, yet they still have a tendency to shut the car off mid-drive given the slightest bump.

A judge has to throw out a ticket that accuses you of driving 563 mph, right?

The photo that blocks the speed reading over 85 is known as two things, the biker's daughter's photo, and a speed governor. Most brilliant thing I've seen all day
