@wheatgod All WRC cars are street legal, since the drivers are required to drive on public roads connecting the timed stages.

@pbussey @Csihany It is not de-restricted. Technically, you're not allowed to go over 100km/h on the Nordschleife as on any public road outside of settlements in Germany.

@japanophile25 Brutus is basically a plane engine on wheels; a chassis that was custom-built around a WW2-era engine. It normally sits at a museum in Sinsheim, Germany.

Every time such a VW pops up on speedhunters.com, I fear that Jeroen Willemsen might be back... :(

Please do something about the heavy OEM wheels, since they're actually hideous as well :(

I still think that after almost 30 years, the Mk II Golf is a beauty.

 @Nemes That's right. The verb is "horchen", which means something like "to listen in concentration". So Audi is the literal meaning of the imperative "horch!".

I dig classics with aftermarket foglights attached below the front bumper <3

I can't even tell if it's a Kadett B or C. Probably B, I guess.

I don't like the look a bit. The rear is too wide for the rest of the car, the taillights look like they've been stolen from Aston Martin... Only the front looks okay.

I'm not so sure about that, Mike. The Nürburgring is not the same as the Nordschleife, at least since they built the new track. I doubt that the Nordschleife will be sold, since it's a public road. The disastrous "let's take a race track and turn it into motorsport disneyland" project is a whole different matter.

The Challenger was and is a pretty bitchin' car, and I say this as a European. I'm totally fine with that video ;)

The guy with the pristine RX-7 should be awarded a medal for keeping the car in that condition.

NGV probably stands for "Nitrous Gas Velocity".

I was wondering Mike, do you speak or at least understand some Japanese, or was someone (Dino?) there with you to translate?

Am I the only one who finds all that Drift Championship a bit pointless and boring? I can't help myself...
