Valiant Charger

As I was doing some research on the Australian based Chrysler Valiant Charger, I came upon the short film, Peace & Quiet : Fast Pants – Tight Cars. To be honest it’s quite terrible and it reminds me of the video Sabotage from the Beastie Boys. There is however some kick-ass footage of old Valiant Chargers and classic motorcycles so it’s definitely worth the watch if you’ve got nothing better to do and lots of time to kill. Check it out after the jump.

Rage Comet R: Off Road Supercar – XCAR

Posted in Cool Stuff, General, Off-Roading, Toys, Videos by MrAngry | August 29th, 2013 | 1 Response |

Rage Comet R

This is the Rage Comet R, and it’s as equally at home off-road as it is ripping around your favorite motocross track. It’s powered by a Kawasaki 1,352cc motorcycle engine that cranks out 200 hp. Pretty good stuff when you consider it weighs in at just under 1,100 lbs dry. 0-60 mph happens in around 3.5 seconds with a top speed of over 120 mph. Oh and by the way, it’s street legal… at least in the UK anyway. This is the type of road legal vehicle that enthusiasts over here in the U.S. would kill for. However since we can’t have it, you’ll just have to be content with watching the video. Click through and check it out.

Australian 4X4 Adventure: The Gall Boys

Outback Off Road

Camping sucks – there I said it. Why anyone would want to go out into the elements, pitch a tent, and shit in the woods is beyond me. However there are those who love doing it. My idea of camping is different. You see I want a real bed, a toilet and a set of doors I can close that will actually keep wildlife and natures critters away from me. The Gall Boys Adventures down in Australia have camping down to a science, as not only do they make it fun and give you a roof over your head, but they give you a full dose of off-road awesomeness in the process. Check them out after the jump!

Dodge Polara CHP

If you’re like me then you can pretty much tell any type of police cruiser from the way the headlights look in your rear view mirror. Be it a Ford Crown Victoria, Mustang, Dodge Charger or even the Chevrolet Camaro’s that were used in the 1990’s, a good driver was always on the look out for these bad boys. Jay Leno recently had a chance to meet up with CHP Captain Matt Guthrie and former commissioner Spike Helmick, as well as five of the finest patrol cars of the last 40 years. This is a very cool episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, so make sure to click through and check it out.

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee: Don Rickles

Don Rickles

Don Rickles is one of the last true hardcore comedians. He made his bones in a time when you were either funny or you starved to death as a comic. His friends included such fellow icons as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. At age 87 he’s as sharp as ever and has the ability to come at you in such a way that your jaw will hit the floor. Rickles is this week’s featured comedian on Seinfeld’s, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and I have to say, that thus far, he may be my favorite guest to date.

Becx-TDS Racing: Semi Truck Drift Gymkhana

Semi Truck Drift

When Ken Block’s original Gymkhana One came out it set the stage for an entirely new genre of motor sport video. It’s been imitated and parodied, however with all the second hand videos that have come after, there is still nothing like the original. Take this attempt by Becx-TDS Racing where they’ve managed to get a semi-tractor to drift. Is it cool? Well, kinda. But the friggin’ thing is 10,000 lbs. and unfortunately lacks the quickness and grace of Block’s original video. I understand they’re trying to take the sport of gymkhana to another level, however I’m just not sure tractors are the best way to go about doing so.

Dad's Car

Sometimes we find the most precious gifts when we aren’t even looking. They generally come to us by chance at a time when we need them the most, and reward us in ways we could never dream possible. This episode of Petrolicious is one of my favorites, and after watching I think you’ll see why.

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee: Sarah Silverman

Seinfeld Coffee

Here it is people; the lead off episode of Season 2 of Jerry Seinfeld’s, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Jerry’s co-driver for this episode is funny lady Sarah Silverman. The car of choice? A stunning 1969 Jaguar XKE Series II E-Type. It’s powered by a 4.2-liter straight six that not only sounds glorious, but helps motivate the old cat to 60 mph in just 6.7 seconds. It also looks remarkably, like a penis…

But whatever, Silverman and Seinfeld are no doubt friends, but by the looks of the episode I get the feeling that they may have even shared a pillow or two – OR… I could be totally off base on that one. Just click the link below and watch it, because at days end it’s pretty damn funny.
