afghanistan.

I am struck by the beauty of this video.  A beautiful country with a deep, rich, and beautiful culture which has been stranded in a state of perpetual, drowning, overwhelming conflict and war for many, many years.  Will it ever end?  For the sake of the young and of the hopeful—I would like to imagine there a solution that doesn’t involve more bombs, tanks, landmines, and guns.

epic Alfa Romeo Montreal for sale.

I don’t know how much it will go for—-but it looks pristine.  Totally restored and a beautiful shade of Blue.  I’m not sure if the interior looked like that originally—-but I don’t care, it is stunning.

The Alfa Romeo Montreal is definitely one of my favourite Alfas ever made—maybe THE most favourite Alfa made as far as i’m concerned.  This one hits all the right buttons.

Panamera.

EDIT: THIS IS NOT AN APRIL FOOL’S JOKE!

Yes I will take the bold step—-against all the opinions which say it is ‘ugly’ i will come out and say that I think the styling of the Porsche Panamera has grown on me significantly, to the point where I really am digging the looks of it now.  When i first saw it in test mule form, I was deeply disturbed.  When the production version was introduced last year—-i thought Porsche missed the boat a bit, however after seeing it in person I thought it was an ‘interesting’ design albeit not entirely convincing.  After some time and many more instances of exposure, I’ve had an epiphany;  I think this is one of the most unique, compelling, and bold car designs in recent years.  I think Porsche really made a bold step in designing it, and I can honestly say I love the way the Panamera looks in real life.  I think pictures don’t do the car justice—-it has much more presence than pretty much ANY 4-door sedan on the road today.  The interior, additionally—is one of the nicest interiors I have ever sat in.

Here is a wonderful Sportec-tuned SP560 Panamera.  I think it is all types of hotness—-yes I know some of you will laugh at me—but i’m glad many deride it, so the resale value will fall dramatically! plan in effect….

McLaren MP4-12C: how to build an unimaginative, ugly, and boring supercar.

The McLaren MP4 can do blahblahblahblahblah in blah.blah seconds.  It can reach a top speed of blahblahblahblahblah.  It has technology everywhere, including a blahblahblahblahblahblah….it is the successor to the legendary blahblahblahblahblah.

Don’t even care.  It’s so bland and painfully boring from every angle.  It looks like a rejected 90s build-your-own-supercar-kit-car.  Yeah you copied a Ferrari from the front, you copied the outline of an R8, and you tried add some Lamborghini-ness……BLAH BLAH BLAH.  blech.

Hey McLaren! YOU SUKZ AT DESIGN!  try again sometime…..
