I am fed up with digital renderings that are photo realistic, as they get my hopes up, that such vehicles are real
drag racing in Mexico, just skip the first 4 minutes and 20 seconds, no one know how to effing edit a video. Or skip to the 9 minute mark for the wheelie race
when the red car crashed back to earth, he smashed the passenger side front suspension, and that caused it to veer left
In racing conditions, these open Opera windows significantly improved airflow, giving the vehicle's aerodynamics better lift in the race.
Starting with a virtually stock bright red 1959 Invicta, known in lore as the "winningest Buick of all time", the Reynolds-Kenne-Bell association was instrumental in establishing the reputation of the Buick nailhead engine as a performance powerplant and were so influential that Buick Headquarters not only touted their successes, they supplied prototype parts to Reynolds for evaluation. This partnership fielded several cars- the 1959 Invicta, a nearly identical 1961 Invicta, a very early 1965 Gran Sport (which was rolled and replaced with second '65), 1967 and 1968 GS 400 coupes, and the most famous Reynolds Buick racer of all, a white 1970 Gran Sport 455 Stage 2 which ran 10.89 at 126.85

a decrepit piece of cardboard, or the last NOS part needed for a restoration to win points at some car show?

64 year old in Glasgow pulls off the road to help a stranger fix his bicycle steering, then realizes, the bike was stolen from him!
Mr Devlin was heading home after nightshift, and was able to identify the bike as his own mid-repair due to distinctive stickers and helmet attached to it.
He then remarked: "That's mine" before chasing the thief down the street.
Hartey pled guilty, and will serve 15 months in jail
From 1994 to 2015, the Minnesota Vikings mascot was Ragnar (played by Joseph Juranitch) and he drove onto the field at the beginning of a game dressed in Viking garb, on a motorcycle..... thank you Marc B!
For these services, Ragnar reportedly made $1,500 a game. But when you've got a family of Vikings to feed, $1,500 only goes so far.
So Ragnar did what any self-respecting employee who has provided a company 21 years of service would do. He demanded a raise, to $20,000 a game for the next ten years. That would be a raise of 1,333%, a grand total of $1.6 million over ten years.
The Vikings said no.
Before he became Ragnar, he broke his father John’s Guinness World Record by shaving his face with an axe in 8 minutes, 43 seconds. This toe-curling stunt illustrated in no uncertain terms that the company is literally about the cutting edge. The firm manufactures sharpening tools, primarily for the meatpacking industry but also for the general consumer, including chefs and sportsmen.
