The Pebble Beach Concours has truly become �the world�s concours.� El Paxton si que es espantoso y el N� 1 no. Pebble Beach como siempre fue una gran experiencia y afortunadamente pude ver a muchos mexicanos por ah�. No me imagino la cara de los dem�s conductores al verlo??
El auto anfibio �y fabricaron muchos?, Ahora que hablando de cosas absurdas, �por qu� las limusinas conservan el tama�o de las puertas para los pasajeros de atr�s?
Hola, muy interesante este blog, coincido contigo en los autos “raros” y admiro tu selecci�n de sus fotos pero, el Crosley Hot Shot fue un auto gringo anticipado a su tiempo, presentado al mercado en el peor momento para su venta porque quer�an autos grandes y poderosos. Chequen cu�nto cuesta el Amphicar y se asustar�n de lo que cuestan estos coches hoy. Fue un placer conocerte en vivo, Alberto y nos pondremos de acuerdo para hacer una rese�a del fin de semana en Monterey, CA. Se adentr� en el fascinante mundo del automovilismo �como �l mismo lo define- hace m�s de 40 a�os, justo en la d�cada de los 60s con la celebraci�n de los primeros Grandes Premios de Formula 1. Desde entonces, su inter�s en los veh�culos ha quedado reflejado de un sinf�n de formas. El inter�s de colaborar en este espacio surge debido a que en los medios de comunicaci�n mucho se escribe y se escucha sobre la industria automotriz, los pilotos y sus escuder�as, los motores y los campeonatos de carreras, que sin lugar a dudas son los laboratorios para desarrollar nuevas tecnolog�as que nos permiten contar con autom�viles m�s seguros, eficaces y veloces. Sin embargo, Navarro Llamas recomienda no olvidar las bases que han cimentado el desarrollo de este emocionante deporte que al mismo tiempo es una importante industria no s�lo en M�xico sino sobre todo a nivel mundial.

Recently, the Internet was full of news of supercars that burnt. People pay big money for these fantastic expensive cars and they burn. I propose you to look at a Lamborghini Gallardo burned in Greece.
Shadows in combination with certain objects, and with a certain angle, can give very unexpected picture.
And it is called Enypniastes eximia or pelagic sea cucumber. This girl is an active user of one of the Russian social networks. Some people collect coins, others collect lighters but this girl “collects” men. Two days before the weekend. I have not very good news. Izismile is completely clean of all this dirt. I know this for sure.
We spent a lot of time yesterday on checking the site.
Personally, neither my antivirus nor firewall alarmed me about the threats that could be caused due to this advertising.
Yesterday, we completely stopped the cooperation with this agency and permanently removed their advertising from the site.
Therefore, I want to apologize to all visitors who were affected with this and had problems with Trojansmalware.
I want to ask all of you who had these problems to send me an email and tell me what was the day when it occurred.
How Cambridge University students celebrated the last day of exams?
The students went on Sunday to a party named Suicide Sunday and they drank heavily. Would you dare to jump from a bridge that high?
The car weights an incredible 4. 3 tonnes, but that’s less than 10% of the weight of the original tank from which the engine was sourced.
Of course Jay Leno is annoying, he is hard working, wealthy, and likes cars.
So guys, fancy hot rods?
I know, i know i am exagerating . Randy fabricated the adapter that mated the tank engine with the allison automatic tranny out of a greyhound bus. Chassis with wood bucks in Al Trumbly’s shop. Looking forward at cowl hood and front end.
Note the hand formed grill shell. Ready to show (at Goodguys 2002) with custom built alcoa style wheels. There is also a video of the engine firing up, put up in their site.
Guys, i have created this thread purely to share a work of genius. What a blast of a car. Forgot that laptop volume was set at high. One reason such hobby profession has an healthy presence in developed countries is due to patrons like Jay Leno. Here’s another tank engine car hybrid.
Amazed to see that they actually bothered about FE. The engine was not designed to sprint. How on earth did they balance the weight. How on earth did they balance the weight. Hi abhijeet, the car actually sprints more than we think, infact with the monster torque the engine generates, the car initially used to twist like a pretzel. Regarging the rover, i think the engine is more inside the car than in the bonnet.. God how did i miss that. That is one heck of a ride.
Build your hot rod and drag.
The car gets about one mile per gallon.
This unique custom car is currently owned by famous Jay Leno. It is still in progress, but the idea is obvious. What you are about to see is so custom that it may be right to state this is not 1966 Mustang any more.
