Video: Driving High (On Weed)

I know this is from back in January 25th 2007, but I just wanted to share this open minded loosely controlled interview about the effects of marijuana on a driver. You might be shocked at their findings :)

Video Highlights:
The guy rolled an impressive cone spliff also known as a bat.
Baked drivers are aware of impairment and drove more cautiously.
The finding was the complete opposite of alcohol impairment which promotes risk taking.

Video: VOD Cars Presents Ferrari CS Tunnel Runs

vodcars.jpg

In case you have been living in a cave or simply new to cool automotive sites, let me introduce you to www.VODCars.com. VOD Cars claims to be the #1 Broadband Car Network, and they post new video episodes every Tuesday submitted by users.

Most of their videos are pretty cool and cannot be easily found anywhere else on the internet, most are worth a watch, but recently I have become more and more unimpressed with some of the over-advertising that they stick into the videos. I don’t want to see more than a quick add at the start of a video, and a quick one at the end.

Their latest Episode 124 (Titled Sounds Of Fury) consists of a Challenge Stradale singing beautifully in a tunnel, a passenger car making fun use of underground train station stops, Captain Kirk approving his test drive, another Ferrari doing 160mph in a tunnel, and a MC12 learns how not to film itself going through a tunnel.

CLICK HERE to view this awesome sounding video (p.s. the first minute of the video is PURE GOLD SOUND from the CS)

Steve Saleen Retiring… I’ve heard that before from Jay-Z

saleen-banner-retire.jpg
Its hard to keep any real master from performing beautiful feats of destiny on whatever they call their canvas. Did you really think that Jay-Z would stay retired for ever? No, I wasn’t fooled either. Call it a legitimate stealth break from your work. A well deserved one in each of these two masterful domains. However nothing can ever hold back their DNA’s screams to continue enjoying what they have been creating for years.

According to Saleen.com on May 14th, 2007, Mr. Saleen, founder and vice chairman of the board at Saleen Inc., Steve Saleen has announced his official retirement from the company’s executive team.

Test Drive #1: Hunting for an Acura NSX

acura-nsx-07.jpg
Welcome to Part 1 of however many it takes to find THE ONE.

Due to an unfortunate incident, my 1993 Honda Prelude SR-V requires a new engine. I had just installed a JDM H22A no less than 4 years ago when I bought the car and it still drove like new. I will get into the full details about my prelude issue once I serve a particular service station with a small claims suit. Yes they don’t want to take ownership for something they did resulting in my engine requiring to be replaced.
