… that’s the age old question isn’t it? If you could have one car that fits all of your needs and wants, what exactly would it be. I go through this dilemma on a daily basis as I am always on the lookout for my next new ride. Americans as a whole live in their automobiles as we use them for everything from going to the store, to taking the kids to soccer practice, to hitting the race track on the weekend. Therefore when the subject of buying a car comes up, the process is nowhere near as easy as people think. You’ve got to consider price, usage, seating, storage space, MPG, performance and most of all, you’re lifestyle. Ask someone what they could buy if their funds were unlimited and odds are they’d choose some sort of exotic. Ask them again, but this time interject that it will be the only car that they can have, and all of a sudden their answer may change.

Yep, there are still those out there who have a few beans in the bank and it seems as though they’re spending them on Porsche’s. When Porsche announced recently that the new 2011 GT2 RS, their most powerful car ever, was only going to have a production run of 500 cars, people got excited.

Top 10 Cars to Get Laid In.

Top 10 Cars to Get Laid In

Before you guys get all uppity and start ragging on all my selections I want you to go back and reread the title of this post. Keep in mind that it DOES NOT say, “Top 10 Cars That Will Get You Laid”, it says, “Top 10 Cars to Get Laid In” – there is a very big difference here. We all know that if you’re pimping in something super exotic at the club that your chances of getting a little action will go up. There are however some problems with this, for instance; have you ever tried to get laid in a Lamborghini, Ferrari or Corvette. There is no head room, no back seat and at the end of the night you’re going to be totally pissed if you get any bodily fluids on that fine leather. So, for that reason I’ve decided to give you a list of 10 pre-approved rides that are conducive for bangin’ boots.

Porsche: Use Your Time Wisely.

Posted in Cool Stuff, Pop Culture, Popular Cars, Porsche, Videos by MrAngry | October 14th, 2010 | 1 Response |

When the first Porsche was built back in 1948 Dr. Ferdinand Porsche had a very good idea of where he wanted his automobile company to go. He understood all those years ago that because our time on this earth is limited that we must use it wisely. Over the years Porsche has produced some of the most iconic cars ever to be created. The 356, the 911 and even the 928 are all cars that have left their stamp in the pages of automotive history. The key, according to Dr. Porsche is to create something that will live on by reputation long after our physical being has gone. That is what he wanted with Porsche. Some people go through life without ever leaving their mark, Dr. Porsche however was not one of those people. So, what’s your legacy going to be…

Ever Ask: What Does Richard Hammond Think?

Richard Hammond Top Gear

If you’re any type of car guy worth your salt then you know who Richard Hammond is. I could go on about how he is one of the hosts of Top Gear, the greatest automotive show ever created, or how he is a rabid muscle car nut who loves vintage American iron. I think however that in this instance I’m just going to tell you about his top 10 favorite muscle cars. As most of you know America’s muscle cars were produced from 1964 to 1973. Back then the manufacturers had a very simple formula. Take a nice mid-size sedan and stuff in the biggest, baddest and most powerful engine you could to create a tire shredding beast that all others would fear. It was a simple concept really and one that until recently was all but lost in the American auto industry. The Hamster though, he’s decided to take us back in time by providing us with a list of his top ten favorites.

Posted in Celebrity Cars, Cool Stuff, General, Movie Cars, Movies, Pop Culture, Popular Cars, Videos by MrAngry | September 21st, 2010 | Leave a Reply |

Most people know Danny Trejo from such movies as Heat and From Dusk Till Dawn. Trejo is a character actor, and a damn good one, but it hasn’t been until now that he’s landed the lead in his own movie, Machete. When Machete premiered back on August 25th, Trejo who is heavily involved in the Los Angeles lowrider seen invited a bunch of his buddies to come as well and bring with them some old iron. In fact the entire cast saw fit to ditch the conventional Hollywood limo’s and instead roll heavy in some of the most beautiful lowriders that L.A. had to offer. Machete was directed by Robert Rodriguez and co-starred Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Jeff Fahey, Don Johnson and Steven Seagal.

Top 10 Cars of the Jersey Shore.

Posted in Audi, FAIL, General, Hummer, Infiniti, Lamborghini, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Pop Culture, Popular Cars, Porsche, Scion by MrAngry | September 21st, 2010 | 13 Responses |

We all know how the MTV reality show Jersey Shore has popularized the crap out of the New Jersey Guido. Sure it’s a fun place to go and hang out and to people watch there is probably no better place on earth. The guys and gals that populate this area of the stinky state show up around June 1st and don’t leave until the end of the Labor Day weekend. One aspect of the Jersey shore that some people fail to take into consideration are the cars in which these wonderful individuals showcase themselves in. Just like Los Angeles the Jersey shore is all about show and bling. Sure, most of the beach and club goers live at home in their parents basement in real life, but once the sun comes out it’s all about rolling heavy and showing off. Here is a listing of some of the Jersey Shore’s rolling hardware.

2011 Ford Mustang GT: RideLust Review

2011 Ford Mustang GT

The 2011 Ford Mustang GT; return of the 5.0.

Thumbs Up: Finally, a Mustang GT that’s good enough for track days, even bone stock

Thumbs Down: Interior of base GT is bland, cloth seats aren’t comfortable

Buy This Car If: You want a muscle car and sports car rolled into one

I’ll admit it: I’ve always liked Mustang GTs, since back in the day when the Fox bodied GTs were available as rentals from Hertz. They were fun cars to flog on a road trip, particularly if that road trip involved the sparsely populated roads of the American Southwest. They were amusing, but only for short periods of time. I was a sports car guy, after all, and flogging a Mustang around a road course just seemed wrong, like using a garden shears to cut hair. Even if it gets the job done, it isn’t going to be pretty.
