More Shock: You Can't Keep Your Doctor, Either | Main | Excitable Andy has had enough of Alec Baldwin

Saturday Car Thread - [Niedermeyer's Dead Horse]

Here we are again. Time for another tech/spec-free car post. Thanks to all the morons and moronettes who offered tips in last week's thread.

Built Tough:

Just try and take this Toyota down. It dares ya.'. (HT Comrade Arthur)

Perfection, Lunacy, or Hoax:

A serious WTH moment in automotive history. (HT Mike Hammer)

Because Cars:

Paulina Porizkova.

Luxury and Class, American-style:

Grab your Harvey-Wallbanger and your cigarette case and slip back in time.

Volvo Trucks:

A smooth ride and tight controls. And... Enya?


2013 Performance Car of the Year:

No driving in front of airplanes, check. Cars on this runway, airplanes on that one. Check. Still, I momentarily contemplate defying the man: waiting for a Gulfstream to rotate into position on runway 33, then lining up next to it in the sleek Ferrari F12berlinetta or the stealth-creased new Corvette or the brutal Competition Pack BMW M6. Giving the universal signal: Let's go. Then the screech of tires and the roar of the turbofans, the asphalt rushing to the windshield, 5000 feet to the finish. Fist in the air, Top Gun-style. Childhood dreams are made of stuff like that.

Dreams, indeed.

Indy Car Loses A Great:

Blessedly, it's to retirement. It could have been so much worse.

Women and Cars:

Covered elbows edition.

Music to Cruise by:

Never before and never since has any television show so seamlessly blended fast cars, hot women, guns, fashion, and music. Miami Vice, during its time, was a phenomenon and, even now, I catch episodes on On-Demand. Scenes such as this are one reason why. And, if you deny removing both hands from the wheel to commit to a blazing air-drum solo while listening to this song, well... you're a damn dirty, stinkin' lying liar. (HT to Taro Tsujimoto for the song suggestion)
