video of the day. 510

My first ‘real’ car (not counting my lime green 1977 Buick Le Sabre i had when i was 15/16) was a 1993 Nissan Sentra SE-R which was just a fantastic car….i still miss it sometimes.  It was quite pure for its time.  That SE-R was a natural descendant of this; the 510.

I found this great 26 minute vintage film called “Against All Odds” about the 510.  Well worth a watch!

Just a photo of the new season of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge GT Class, where there is an APR tuned Audi S4.  Don’t ya love the photo of the S4 and the tuned, trans-am livery Chevrolet Camaro duking it out?  Very cool!

Lingenfelter makes an ass out of the 2010 Camaro.

Lingenfelter_455_Trans_Am_Camaro

For ages, Corvette fanboys have been singing the praises of Lingenfelter Vettes and how they can tear up supercars for breakfast, but obviously even Lingenfelter has grown so bored and tired of Corvettes that they have decided on new project.  They have turned to making tacky looking body kits for the new Chevy Camaro.  The car is now making 650+hp, up from the stock 430hp or so in the Camaro SS. But holy wow, it looks ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE!  Advice to Lingenfelter; go back to working on Corvettes and stop trying to built body kids, because you suck at it!

BMW 3.0 CSL “art car”

This was commissioned by BMW, and the artist’s name is Frank Stella; a minimalist painter/artist from the USA.  The other “art car” designs i’ve seen BMW commission have really been quite disgusting and disgraceful to the faithful classics….this one, however, looks fantastic in IEDEI opinions!

2008 Coronado Festival of Speed

Several weeks ago, I found myself in San Diego for a conference.  That saturday, I, by chance, found out about a ‘festival of speed’ going on at a military base in Coronado.  So i took a cab over there, got lost on the naval base, however proceeded to end up at an AMAZING day of Can-Am, Trans-Am, and vintage race cars and street cars going at it on a runway.  It was a superb day, with some of the greatest cars in history going at it!

Here are a couple videos i’ve found on YouTube documenting that fly day.
