Wall of Death Riders

What would you do in order to make a living? Would you risk life and limb on a daily basis and, if so, how would you justify it to others. India’s Wall of Death Riders are a group of daredevils who look death in the face for a bit of fame and very little in the way of fortune. Some people say their insane, but for these men, it’s just another day at the office.

Motorcycle Safety: Think! Don’t ride too fast

Motorcycle Safety

When I first moved to California I was taken by surprise at the number of motorcycles that lane split. Now granted, it is legal to do that out here, but generally it’s to be done as a way of alleviating traffic and should be done safely. The majority of riders though seem to throw caution to the wind and simply run through traffic at highway speeds. This is not only dangerous, but irresponsible as well. A new ad for Transport for London (TfL) is aimed at giving riders a unique perspective as to the consequences of being overzealous on the throttle during traffic. It’s not subtle, but it does get the message across.

What’s the best, worst car you’ve ever owned?

1989 Toyota Tercel

Ever have a good car that you simply love to hate on? Mine was a 1989 Toyota Tercel like the one you see here and looking back on it, I feel truly guilty about the way I treated it. This car was all about basic transportation, which was something it did quite well and it deserved better than a young adult who simply wanted to beat on it and go fast. If you look at the spec sheet it’s really quite dismal. Power came from a 1.5L I4 that produced 78 hp and 87 lb-ft of torque through a 3-speed automatic with manual overdrive. Mine only had two options – the aforementioned automatic transmission and A/C. Everything else was bargain basement. It had an AM/FM radio with two speakers, crank windows, cloth seats and that was it.

Hot Rodding

There’s really no one way to describe what hot-rodding is to people. Some perceive it as a bunch of guys that roll around in shitty old cars trying to look cool. Others view the hobby as one that brings out the best of your automotive imagination. Whatever group you fall into though, rest assured that most true hot-rodders could give a shit what you think and simply roll to their own tune. Flake & Flames is an upcoming documentary that explores rods in general and gives us all a little insight into why the custom car culture is one of the greatest hobbies to be associated with.

Model A Ford

It’s got no roof, no hood and tires that are about as wide as a pencil. Handling, braking and climate control are also not in its resume, let alone anywhere near this vehicle. This is a Ford Model A, a car that is basically an engine with some external plumbing equipment bolted on for good measure. To most people it looks unfinished, but to its owner, this old car is just perfect.
