GHE-O Rescue

Ever turned on the news only to find out that a town or city has been wiped out by a natural disaster? Thankfully most people will never get up close and personal with one of these events.

Be it by land, sea or air, assistance is usually required when Mother Nature hits us over the head. This is where the Ghe-O RESCUE comes in. It has room for 11 people, can tackle the toughest of terrain, and when equipped properly, can even traverse open bodies of water. Check out its capabilities after the jump.

Volvo Trucks

At what point do you risk your life for your company? Is it when they pay you an exorbitant amount of money, or perhaps it’s when they’re the only game in town and you need a job.

Wouldn’t it be nice if all CEO’s and company President’s felt this way…

Virgin Galactic Prepares to Blast Off

Posted in Best of, General, News, Pop Culture, Press Release, Science by MrAngry | October 20th, 2011 | Leave a Reply |

Virgin Galactic Spaceport

Well, it’s official. Virgin Galactic has opened the worlds first spaceport in New Mexico. The $200m state funded project was agreed upon back in 2005 and covers a 27 sq. mile parcel of land known as “The Land of Enchantment”. This is pretty big news when you get right down to it, because billionaire businessman Richard Branson is now the first man to actually privatize space travel. Tickets are selling for a mere $200,000 a seat, and while that won’t get you to the moon, that will get you about 60 miles straight up where you’ll be able to float around weightless for a few minutes. Now while $200,000 may seem like a bunch of moola’ for most people, rest assured that there are plenty of people that will see this as a bargain and take full advantage of being one of the first private citizens in space.

Honda To Press: Ridgeline Isn’t Going Away

In a recent statement to the automotive press, Honda seems to be channeling Mark Twain. In regards to the Ridgeline pickup, Honda’s release essentially translates to “rumors of my demise are greatly exaggerated.” In fact, Honda wants the world to know that the Ridgeline will soldier on well beyond the current 2012 refresh.

For the coming year, a Ridgeline Sport joins the product line, and the Ridgeline gets a boost in fuel economy. That’s a good thing, since the current Ridgeline’s 15 mpg city and 20 mpg highway aren’t exactly “class leading.” In fact, Honda has struggled to move Ridgeline pickups in 2011, selling just 6,476 units year-to-date through September. To put that in perspective, Ford sold 7,154 Ranger pickups in September alone (and 49,788 YTD), and the current Ranger model really hasn’t been updated since 1998. Read More…

Would you drive a Ford F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab at 182 miles per hour, even at the Bonneville Salt Flats? My answer to that question, without much consideration, would be a resounding “no.” Ask Brent Hajek, a farmer from Oklahoma and owner of Hajek Motorsports, the same question and you’re likely to be met with an enthusiastic “hell yes!”

Hajek just set two land speed records in a slightly modified 2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup equipped with the new 6.7-liter PowerStroke diesel engine. On pump diesel, the truck ran a top speed of 171.123 miles per hour. Running B20 biodiesel, the truck clocked a top speed of 182 miles per hour, besting the old biodiesel record by over 52 miles per hour. Read More…

Sabine Schmitz gets frisky with CAR Magazine’s Juliet McGuire.

It’s loading… trust us.

You may know Sabine Schmitz as the Wonder Woman of the Nurburgring, or as some folks like to refer to her, The Hottest Woman On The Planet. Sabine is best known for her skills piloting the Ring Taxi around the Nurburgrings many corners, but when not giving people paid tours around the Ring, she’s out test driving the worlds latest and greatest super cars. For example here we see Sabine taking CAR magazine’s Juliet McGuire for a little run in a BMW M3 Frozen Edition. Ms. Juliet is right on the edge of her seat for the entire ride and truth be told, Sabine looks as though she is totally enjoying making her passenger freak out. All I know is that Juliet McGuire is loving being in the passenger seat of that BMW, and I have a feeling that after that ride she’ll be satisfied in more ways than one.
