The Sheep Dogs - I don't know

There ain’t nothin’ better then getting up at 6am on a Sunday morning to hit the open road with a cup-O-joe in hand. It’s one of my favorite things to do and I relish in those drives. I’ll climb into my ’68 Charger still a bit foggy-headed, crank up that big ole’ 440, turn on the radio and roll. That my friends is the perfect start to the day. Music is a very important piece of this equation as hearing the right tunes blast from the radio can either make or break your cruise. If you drive a muscle car you must have a little Lynyrd Skynyrd, a little Allman Brothers Band and of course, a touch of Molly Hatchet. These guys will get you in the mood. Recently though I heard a song from a band called The Sheepdogs called “I Don’t Know”, and well… it made me want to drive again so I figured I’d share it with you.

Bohemian Rhapsody, a VW Polo and a Finnish Street Band

Porkaa Playboys

When the movie Wayne’s World came out in 1992 we were treated to two of the greatest rock groupies in history, Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar. These full grown adolescents hosted a cable access show in Aurora, IL and single-handedly revived one of the greatest rock ballads in history, Queen’s legendary Bohemian Rhapsody. Now, almost 20 years later an award winning Finnish street band called the Porkka Playboys is taking their own shot at Bohemian Rhapsody, but this time they’re doing it from the inside of an old rusted out Volkswagen Polo. Oh and by the way, their version kicks ass. Click through and take a look.

A Kind Of Passion: Vintage Motorcycles

Posted in Best of, General, Horsepower, Movies, Music, Racing, Rants & Raves, Videos by MrAngry | May 9th, 2011 | 2 Responses |

A Kind of Passion

Ducati, Laverda, Honda, MV Agusta, Yamaha and Bultaco are just some of the names that come to mind when I think about vintage motorcycles. Classic bikes are a labor of love. They’re finicky, sometimes unreliable, but in the end, they provide their owners with a kinship that is seldom matched in the realm of motor sport. Owners of these classic machines tend to know them inside and out. They’re attune to every noise, rattle and smell that these wonderful machines emit and strive day in and day out to keep these rolling pieces of history on the road. This video was shot by Squadra Sutge, a group of classic racing enthusiasts at the Classic Moto 2011 event on the Jarama circuit in Madrid, Spain. The footage, music and gray feel of the video brings forth the true essence of these classic machines in a way that will make you want to start scouring your favorite sales publication for a two-wheeled classic.

Beastie Boys

You may be asking yourself, “why in the name of God is the new Beastie Boys video being posted up on an automotive website?” The answer is simple – the cars. Let’s see now… we’ve got an AMC Pacer, an early 70’s Chevrolet Caprice, a Toyota FJ40, Chevy C10 pickup, Toyota Corolla Wagon, a Volkswagen bus and many many others. Oh yeah, there is also a Delorean along with just about every celebrity that Hollywood has to offer. Combine that with the fact that the Beastie’s still kick some serious ass and well… the new question should be, “why hasn’t every other automotive website picked this up?” Click through for some Easter awesomeness…

AcoustiVision System Eliminates The Subwoofer

Posted in Car Tech, Music, News by Kurt Ernst | February 20th, 2011 | 5 Responses |

Imagine having bass AND trunk room.

Magna International calls themselves “the most diversified automotive supplier in the world”, providing manufacturers with everything from electronics to body and chassis components. Need to design or manufacture your own vehicle from the ground up? Magna can help with that, too, so when they claim to have developed “a whole new way to generate sound in a car”, I’m inclined to believe them. Read More…

Automotive Music Videos

I’m always stoked when I see a new music video come out with a hot car, truck or bike in it. I mean hell, all of us who are car enthusiasts have great memories of, at one point or another, cruising down the highway with the stereo blasting with our favorite tunes. While some of us may dig tunes like Sir Mix-A-Lot’s: Carz or Audioslave’s: Show Me How To Live, I generally find myself cruising out to the likes of the Rolling Stones. Whatever your poison though, it doesn’t change the fact that cars and music go together like peanut butter and jelly, only without the mess. The following is a short list of video’s (that I don’t think I’ve posted before) that utilize some sort of bad-ass vehicle as one of their main characters. Click through for the vids and enjoy.

David Beckham’s 911 Turbo for Sale on eBay.

Posted in Celebrity Cars, eBay Motors, General, Music, Pop Culture, Porsche by MrAngry | January 7th, 2011 | Leave a Reply |

David Beckham 911 Turbo

What we have here is soccer star David Beckham’s 2008 Porsche 911 Turbo and it’s up for sale on eBay. Aside from soccer though Beckham is also known for being married to one of the old Spice Girls, not sure which one though, nor do I care. This particular 911 Turbo has been given the full murdered out treatment, and while I dig that, I can’t really get with the fact that his number (23) is plastered everywhere. It’s on the seats, the center caps of the wheels, and the floor mats. Who knows, maybe Beckham just has a bad memory and constantly needs to be reminded of who he is. Aside from the numbers everywhere I have to say this car truly is in pristine condition, and with just over 6500 mile on the clock it’s also just barely broken in. Other custom modifications aside from the paint and upholstery work, are a nice set of rims, Techart exhaust system and bass speakers hidden under the rear jump seats – all in all a great car. I’m just wondering how much moola’ it would cost to get all those 23’s out of that thing.

Merry Christmas from Queens, NY.

Posted in Celebrity Cars, Music, Videos by MrAngry | December 25th, 2010 | 1 Response |

Unfortunately when you live in Queens, NY there is simply not a lot to brag about. Our houses are stacked on each other, our neighbors can be somewhat aggravating and now and again, even a car gets vandalized (really it’s true). From time to time though we have produced some quality things. For example our Korean and Italian food kicks some serious ass, as does our access to two of New York’s major airports, LaGuardia and JFK. Our biggest achievement though came back in the mid-1980’s, when the first pioneers of rap burst onto the scene. I speak of course of RUN-DMC and since it’s Christmas I figured I’d put up a little tune that is near and dear to my heart. Now I know this has nothing to do with automobiles, but hey… it’s Christmas so lighten up, hit play and enjoy a great Christmas classic from the hometown of your Editor-in-Chief.

Pioneer Electronics USA Releases ‘Top Ten Road Trip Songs’ List

Posted in Bizarre, Cars, driving, Lists, Music, Road Trips by Kurt Ernst | December 9th, 2010 | 11 Responses |

Fact: you cannot begin an epic road trip without an epic playlist, but no two people can ever agree on what constitutes an epic playlist. My musical tastes run to extremes, so there’s no telling what’s going to come up at random. It could be Vivaldi, it could be Nine Inch Nails. It may be some obscure Delta blues musician, or it may even be Rammstein (and trust me on this, “Du Hast” doesn’t mean what you think it does). In any case, there are two absolutes with me and road trip music: sooner or later, we’ll be listening to Reverend Horton Heat (“Holy Roller”, most likely), and with the exception of “Highway to Hell”, none of the other songs on the Pioneer list would make one of my playlists.

Sir Mix-A-Lot’s ‘Carz’ Is An Epic, NSFW Video Win

Posted in Cool Stuff, Exotic Cars, Expensive Cars, Fast Cars, General, Music, Videos by Kurt Ernst | November 24th, 2010 | 7 Responses |

There are car guys and then there are car guys: when you think of rap and hip-hop stars, I’ll bet most of you think “posers who own a Ferrari or a Lamborghini just for their image”. After watching this video, I have to give serious props to Sir Mix-A-Lot; not only is he a bona fide gear head, but the man even speaks our language. “Carz” has something for everyone, with rhymes like “my car’s got miles – garage queens, that’s YOUR style”. Even Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood’s got to dig the line “turn off my phone, hear THESE tones”. I wonder if he’ll license the video for an upcoming PSA?
