Cyclists and car drivers have always crossed paths and they do not a very cheerful history. Cue a street in London, late at night, and a Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG Black Series roaring its 6.2-litre V8, slipping and sliding its tail around for sh*ts and giggles. Yes, it wears Arab number plates, which usually means only one thing: a show-off son of an Arab oil sheik is having a blast, waking sleepy people up at night. According to witnesses, the rubber mark he left on the road extended for over 150 feet. The perfect way to end an argument.
2015 marked the 75th anniversary of the Sturgis Bike Rally. The monumental motorcycle rally held in the town of Sturgis, South Dakota, is one of the biggest in the world and attracts motorcycle heads from all around the globe. With custom builds, FMX, stunt demos, burn-outs, beer and more, Sturgis is basically heaven for anyone who loves things with two wheels and an engine. Ride along with Dirt Shark and the Unknown Industries bike crew in this awesome edit from Sturgis 2015 and check out all the madness for yourself.
Joe Rogan takes Jay Leno on a walkaround of his 1965 Corvette Stingray. One of the most timelessly beautiful cars, Rogan discusses his journey with the Corvette. From redoing the previous owner’s modifications and adding his own, this Stingray is in show condition and fit to last another 50 years more. The car is a manifestation of Rogan’s most personal taste, a kind of freedom that only customising a car from top down can offer.
Officers with the Salt Spring Island RCMP were conducting an impaired driving checkpoint when a man driving a Chevrolet Blazer attempted to avoid the checkpoint, nearly striking an officer who was on foot. A police car, stationary on the roadway at the time, was then rammed head-on by the suspect vehicle. Officers approached the man, smashing out the driver’s side window in an attempt to gain control of the suspect. Despite their attempts to stop the man from driving away, he managed to manoeuvre his vehicle out from between the two police cars, and flee. Shout out to Jordan Griffith for the submission.
The 1997 Ford EL Falcon is powered by the last of the single cam Ford 4L’s complete will forged internals. Boost comes from a moderately sized Garrett GT3582 turbo running Haltech EFI making around 500hp to the wheels on pump unleaded fuel. Pat has also adapted a Nissan V6 6spd manual gearbox, Tilton clutch and Shockworks suspension.
It’s amazing how normal everyone else acts. There is a inbred-psycho (and his sister-girlfriend) with an axe and a gun attacking another driver, yet everyone casually passes by and even the guy in the car is pretty chill about it. Can’t say I would react the same in a situation like this. Was waiting for “Stop a Douchebag” to come and put a sticker on his window for blocking traffic with his car.
What do you do if you’re being chased by cops? Some people keep driving until they run out of gas. Others pull over. But one woman in downtown Los Angeles decided to interrupt a police pursuit to dance to Future’s Drake-assisted “Where Ya At” single. A few moments later, officers swarmed the car, pulled her out and took her into custody. The woman is believed to have been under the influence.
Watch these high speed roll races between an Alpha 12 GT-R and a Bugatti Veyron Vitesse. Keep in mind, these roll races began at various speeds and ends at 300kph. Does the Bugatti get the hit? You can decide on that. The GT-R clearly had an issue with the hood floating at high speed that needed to be addressed, but the Alpha 12 power train did its job as we expected.
I published this for the wheels, not the feels. Joking aside, this is an awesome and inspiring story and this dude definitely has some fantastic friends. Two legends right there: The Evo, and Jon Livermore. Respect brother.
