Ken Block’s Gymkhana

Posted in Drifting, Fun, Rally, Video with tags , , , , , , , on May 31, 2011 by FullLockAndTwoSmokingTyres

Definitely well worth taking 8 minutes out of your day to stop whatever you are doing and kick back to watch the beautifully choreographed automotive Ballet of this Rally beast.

And I absolutely love this handbrake as tacky as it is it ROCKS!!!!

Not the best drifting in the world but different and amazing to watch!!

A Motorcycle (More or Less)

Posted in Fun, Motorbike with tags , , , , , , , , on May 30, 2011 by FullLockAndTwoSmokingTyres

I’ve always told myself that I will get my bike licence one day and that I would be a very sensible rider unlike whenIi first started driving, but I can quite imagine that after many a safe journey the hooligan inside me will find a way out and all the crazy things I tried in cars I will find equally stupid things to do on a bike. So I have started to look more towards the choppers and trikes as a slower maybe safer form that I could actually one day imagine myself cruising around on.

In my search i have managed to turn up some amazing creations along with many a strange WTF creations that put a smile on my face, this is a collection of a few of the motorcycles I’ve found with more or less that  wheels.

Deux Chevaux – the Citroën 2CV

Posted in Fun, Project with tags , , , , , , on May 26, 2011 by FullLockAndTwoSmokingTyres

Such a simple car I can quite honestly admit that I thought the 2CV was just one car with no variations and little interest to me until I decided to take a dig about to see what was out there ad boy did I like what i found. I was completely shocked to find a convertible coupe that’s for sure and definitely didn’t expect it to look good!!!

The humble French farmers car rumoured to have been designed to “traverse the ploughed fields without breaking a tray of eggs held by the farmer’s wife” now I’m sure a lot of car designers would love such a simple design brief like that now a days LOL.

I believe this could be my next project if eBay can turn up a cheap decent example, I really feel it perfectly suites the ratrod/hotrod kind of look and have found some superb examples and renderings for your viewing pleasures and my ideas box alike.

I’m off to buy myself some eggs and looking for a plowed field to test them on 🙂

Flat/Matte or Chrome Effects

Posted in Supercar with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2011 by FullLockAndTwoSmokingTyres

Right or not I’m loving Flat/Matte and also Chrome effects whether it’s paints or wraps it makes cars look slicker than slick or tougher than Bruce Willis in a blood and oils soaking white vest 🙂

Some cars really look gaudy with top to toe Chrome but others look slick and definitely gives them a look of traveling at a 100mph while still standing still but the Flat/Matte would have to be my first choice, there just aren’t words descriptive enough to say how tough it instantly transforms any car man enough to don this stealthy, kevlar bullet proof vest of an outfit.

The Limo!!!

Posted in 4x4, Fun, Supercar with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 13, 2011 by FullLockAndTwoSmokingTyres

When I think of a Limo it’s either full of School leavers or a Hen Doo, window down with some in comprehensible, almost Tourette’s like screech bellowing out or half a body holding a bottle of cheap sparkling wine “Woowing” like some overgrown child pretending to be a steam train rolling into station.

Out of the blue i stumble across this SuperBus on the Daily Mail website and it made me rethink my whole idea on the Limo? Maybe there is a Limo out there that would change my view and convince me that they have their place and boy oh boy did I find some different Limo’s all with different appeal.

Next special event I have to make an entrance at I’ll definitely be  looking to see if I can’t hire one of these Unique creations
