"Get On It!"

Jay Leno's Garage

Check out  "Jay Leno's Garage". If you haven't seen this site yet it is pretty cool. Jay's latest video is "Driving the Nissan GT-R". The video is informative and entertaining.

Maybe some day soon I can cancel my cable service (or cancel SPEED TV) and get my car enthusiast fix through cool sites like Jay's.

Half day with five hot super models

by motorfoot 4/22/2008 4:37:00 AM

Want to spend a half day with five hot super models, and not have to resign in disgrace? Well now you can, and its absolutely legal!

We're talking about getting intimate with a Lamborghini Superleggera, Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, Ferrari F430, Porche 911 Cabriolet, or an Audi R8. And if any of the aforementioned are not available, you can pick a Ford GT, Corvette Z06, and a few others.

So, what are you planning for your next vacation? How about taking part in a scenic road trip with five supercars, and getting to drive all five?

For about $1495 you, yes you, can experience supercar nirvana! And for an extra $300 you can bring a friend!

Now I doubt many friends would shell out $300 to ride shotgun, so I would at least put them in charge of the video camera. That way you can at least relive the moment every so often and remember why you spent $1800 hard earned bucks in half a day. But hey, that's what vacations are all about - the experience and the memories.

You can save some money on travel too because the folks at World Class Driving do the traveling! They tour all major cities in the United States!

The Open Platform Car

by motorfoot 4/18/2008 1:05:00 AM

What if designers could come up with several styling versions of a car, and sell them all?

What if you could drop your two year old car off at the dealership styling center and have it "re-bodied" with a new design?

What if an auto company designed a platform car with fixed three dimensional body attachment points that were guaranteed not to change for ten years? The engineering underneath could change, but the fixed coordinates could not be altered.

With this fixed three dimensional contract, the aftermarket could invest in designing compelling niche body styles. The money they invest would pay off because the product would be valid for a long period. This would open up the visual aspect of auto style to match the pace of demand and give us more choices.

On a smaller level, Harley-Davidson has been doing this for decades, and because of this, has a huge after market for bolt on products because their basic platform design changes very slowly. Do auto companies see this?

There's room for a new auto company. An auto company that will free us from the tyranny of time to market. An auto company that embraces choice and style and engineers its platform to enable this aspect of car culture.

What do you think?
