Ricky Bobby in a V8 Supercar!

How Touring Car racing was never able to catch on here in the US still baffles the mind, as it’s probably the most exciting form of racing in the world. One of the biggest aspects of Touring Car racing is the fact that the cars that are racing on the track are the closest that the anyone can get to own in real life. While rules vary from country to country, most series require that the competitors start with a standard body shell, derived from actual production cars.

As the video shows, even a Four-time NASCAR Champion gives his respects to Touring Car speed and agility.


Red Bull: Schuster Skate Villa

Taking a neglected hunting lodge and adding a few thousand pounds of wood and concrete, skater Philipp Schuster and a motivated group of friends transformed an old lodge into one of the cooler indoor skateparks around. Highlighted here by Red Bull, the space, complete with hunting decor, represents one of the most unique skate spots around and arguably the best in Salzburg.

Morgan Motor Company Car

The legendary Morgan Motor Company remains proudly independent to this day, run by Charles Morgan, grandson of founder Harry Frederick Stanley Morgan (or “HFS”). Based in Worcestershire, the luxury car manufacturer employs less than 200 people and produces less than a thousand pieces a year. This is because every Morgan is painstakingly and lovingly hand-made. Another shocking fact: while the shell of a Morgan is metal, much of the car remains made of wood. Because each one is put together by hand, every Morgan is also uniquely beautiful. The waiting list for one of these can range from a year to two, but one might develop patience for such quality.

 


1972 Datsun 240Z

1972 Datsun 240Z

$125k

Finding a 40-year-old ride that’s as good as new? Extremely difficult. Finding one that’s even better than when it rolled off the lot? Nearly impossible. Yet that’s the case with this lovingly restored 1972 Datsun 240Z ($125,000).

Coated in an attention-grabbing lime green, it features a 100% stock interior in perfect condition thanks to every piece having been replaced or restored, a body that’s been completely restored by the experts at Miller Brothers Hot Rod Barn, a suspension that’s full of upgrades from Arizona Z Car, and a lightweight SR20DET engine that’s been tuned for two settings depending on your mood: 320 hp when you’re cruising, and a raucous 439RWHP on pump gas with a beautiful graph to boot.

Its been fully rotisserie restored by one of the biggest names in Barrett Jackson auto restoration. No expense has been spared.  The interior of this car is 100% stock and 100% PERFECT. The owner had to track down every piece and replace it or restore it. This is why this car took nearly 4 years at 40hrs/wk to finish.

Huun-Huur-Tu

How I found this youtube video by watching dub stepping turkeys, I don’t know. But I’m pretty stoked that I did. After listening for a few minutes, I found myself closing my eyes and bobbing my head like those haole people in the audience.
