Posted in Educational, General, Porsche, Videos by MrAngry | November 5th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Magnus Walker

By this time you’ve probably all heard of Magnus Walker and his Urban Outlaw Porsche 911. Walker has an affinity for the 911’s in particular, however now he seems to be moving up through the generations as his new toys are early 930 Turbo’s. These cars are powered by 3.0-liter turbocharged flat-six engines and when released they were sketchy as hell to drive. For Walker though, this is all part of the 930’s charm, so make sure to click through and check it out.

Shinya Kimura Motorcycles

Shinya Kimura builds motorcycles. He uses steel, aluminum, copper and rubber and crafts with only his imagination and the tools around him. His bikes are not conventional an seem to possess a soul that few others can match. Maybe it’s the fact that he grew up in a blue collar town, or the fact that he views a motorcycle as a piece of art that is not complete until it’s sat upon by its rider. Whatever the case, we’re just happy that there are people like Shinya Kimura out there as they help all of us to aspire to be more creative.

Posted in Educational, Funny Videos, General, Pagani, Racing, Videos, Volkswagen by MrAngry | October 24th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Pagani Huayra

The 2014 Pagani Huayra is nothing short of an automotive masterpiece. It’s stunning to look at, is a world class performer and at the same time, has the ability to make just about any other super car out there feel inferior. Under the hood lies a mid-mounted 6.0-liter, twin-turbo V-12 that’s hand built by AMG to the tune of 730 horsepower and on paper, the statistics look to top all. The real question though is – does it? Motor Trends Jonny Lieberman recently headed to Modena, Italy to find out.

Porsche 2.7 RS and the Pursuit of Purity

Posted in Educational, Porsche, Videos by MrAngry | October 21st, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Porsche 27RS

To some enthusiasts, the Porsche 2.7 RS was the first true production sports car. Basically a race car for the street, the 2.7 RS was the car you bought if you wanted to go racing, but weren’t part of a race team per say. Jonathan Segal is an architect, which means he knows a thing or two about design and engineering, therefore it should come as no surprise that a car like this has found a spot in his garage. Check it out after the jump!

Regular Car Reviews: 2003 Honda S2000

Posted in Educational, General, Honda, Videos by MrAngry | October 19th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Honda S2000

There are some cars that have the ability to develop a fan base long after they’re gone. The BMW E30 M3 is one, and the Honda S2000 convertible is another. The S2000, while a great little car, seems to have developed into the stuff of legend posting amazing times both 0-60 mph, in the quarter mile and on the skid pad. The interesting thing though is that very few of what’s been posted by the fan-boys is actually true. Regular Car Reviews takes a look into the Honda S2000, and more importantly, pokes fun of everyone who simply makes stuff up.

I love these guys.

Posted in Best of, Educational, General, News, Police, Pop Culture, Videos by MrAngry | September 28th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Old Patrol

Body roll, bias-ply tires and brakes so bad that maybe you’d get one or two good stops out of them before the pedal went to the floor. These were the Police cars of the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. Cars like the Dodge Monaco and Plymouth Satellite graced patrol fleets across the United States. They were big, lumbering beasts, but then again so was everything else on the road. The following film demonstrates not only how bad these cars actually were, but more so, how good patrol officers had to be to drive them!

Ammo NYC

Common sense dictates that before you purchase any used vehicle that a pre-purchase inspection should take place. This is something that can be taken care of as easily as bringing the car to your local mechanic, or hiring an expert to go and check it out for you. Larry Kosilla of AMMONYC.com recently traveled to Pittsburgh, PA to inspect a beautiful Ford GT for a client and explains the ins-and-outs of what to look for.
