This Ken’s Block Gymkhana Six… that is all.
Ah, the school bus: the place where you got teased on your way to school, watched the world go by, snuck in naps, traded lunches, and possibly got your first hand job. But those days are long gone; here are 15 insane school bus stunts by people who just couldn’t let their childhood go out without a bang. And some explosions. Read More…
Bullitt and Vanishing Point. Two cheesy films from the late 1960’s and early ’70’s that have only one redeeming quality – the car chases. These films set the standard for what many believe to be the best automotive car chases in history. Fast forward now to 2007 – Director Quentin Tarantino decides he’s going to have a go at creating his own version of the car chase using the same cars in the aforementioned films. He took a 1969 Dodge Charger (Bullitt used a ’68) and a 1970 Dodge Challenger, filmed them at speed and hoped the entire car chase world would love him for it. Hmm… not so much. While the chase was indeed good and actually filmed at speed like the originals, it simply lacked the overall grittiness that the first two had. Yes the cars were cool (anything Kurt Russell is in is cool), and yes the action great, but for some reason I just don’t think it lived up to the originals.
Am I wrong? Let me know what you think.
There are few things more joyful than watching two motorcycles, a police inspired trophy buggy and a drift car all frolicking together at one time. Simply put, this video is epic and will most likely be the best thing you watch all day. The fun begins after the jump.
Watching any manner of car, truck or motorcycle fly through the air is generally considered to be an exciting event. However when that vehicle weighs upwards of 17,000 lbs and comes in the form of a Freightliner Tractor, well then it graduates to EPIC. Scott Godfrey decided that he wanted to best the long distance record that was set by his little brother, so he decided to take a shot. How did it turn out? Click through to find out.
Wouldn’t it be great if everyone had access to 130 GoPro cameras. Ever wonder what kind of videos you could create? Ken Block, the marketing master, shows us just how far you can take your imagination with the right tools (and sponsorship) behind it. Check it out after the jump.
Now this is what I like to see. A $600,000 Ferrari Enzo getting flogged like the hot-rod that it is. I have no idea who the owner is, nor do I care. All I can do is give them full props for kicking the shit out of that thing and driving it like it should be driven. BOOYA!! ENZO DOIN’ DONUTS IN THE MUD!!
The Subaru BRZ has been getting so many accolades over the last year that it’s hard not to hate the little bugger. Yes it handles, looks good and makes all your naughty bits tingle, but at days end it still only comes with 200 hp. To quell the fears of perspective horsepower junkies, Subaru has created a little video that will fill your head with “what if’s” so as to get you re-excited about their little gift to the motoring world. Click through and check it out.
It’s not overly complex, there are no explosions, and the only sounds you hear are those bellowing from the 1JZ engine of Ryan Tuerck’s drift car. This is Tuerck’s latest video and I’ve got to say that thus far, it’s one of the purest we’ve seen to date. So now click through and get ready to listen to 5-minutes of power-sliding action.
