Cool Vehicle Sighting

Daily Double of Orange Jeeps.


370 Snow Rally

How much fun would this be?  They should sell tickets for this ride (or a conversion kit…).








Raptor Arrival Imminent

Anxiously awaiting the arrival of the not quite officially announced Ranger Raptor for the US market…



Cool Vehicle Sighting

This deserved a post.  Someone has clearly spent some time on this project.

If only I was fabulously wealthy…








Mercedes will bring the G550 4×4^2 to the US, after all:

Ford Bronco Mythology (The Continuing Saga)

FordBroncoConcept-smCount this blurb from Road & Track as further evidence of the loyal following enjoyed by the Ford Bronco, and the ongoing mythology of the 2004 Bronco concept vehicle.

This particular piece is short and sweet, detailing a last minute engine swap that was required to get the concept to the show floor.  True dedication.

I’d say the most meaningful line here is “Sadly, no one’s driving a production version of that spectacular Bronco concept.”

Take Your R/C Seriously

I love R/C cars.  As a matter of fact, I picked up a ‘starter’ model Losi Mini Desert Truck for Father’s day this year.  The official reason for this childish indulgence was to race and thrash around the neighborhood with my son, with his Losi Mini Desert Buggy.  The truth is, I just needed another vehicle to tinker with, and an R/C truck makes a pretty affordable diversion.

So I understand the fascination with the vehicles and hobby, but these guys take it to a rather bizarre extreme.  Typical R/C vehicle are scaled to 1:18, 1:10, maybe 1:8 or 1:5.  However, this Tamiya Wild Willy’s (and a Previous Tamiya Sand Scorcher) have been brought to real life in 1:1 scale by a German tuning house.

Makes me want to see my old Tamiya Grasshopper, or the classic Frog brought to life in the same way.
