You have to get to a Rally America event now. Not really close in anyway, but it's cools to see rally in our country. Just no historic cars.......

Yea this car is cool, but what about a Group B car? What car? The car here is awesome, well, amazing. But that color combo is what really does it for me. It looks awesome, but the grey and orange together just look epic.

@Jonathan Moore Ah, of course! I forgot about Alpine for a second. I blame the fact that they're all blue.


And I did read it a while back, but I feel I need to read it again.

Replaying to myself, but what's the car on the Bonus Images page that's six photos down? Those headlights look like the older Jensen, but the car looks French. Is it a Matra? I love Matras. I need a Matra.


Did I mention I like Matras? It literally hit me early today too. Not even kidding. I thought about the MS670 and now I'm hooked. I love all odd French cars. Panhards? Yes please.

I love how nowadays every sport is "Scripted" to people. I never understand why people assume this, NASCAR or whatever are scripted.

It reminds me a lot of my 240 style wise, aside from the fender. It's almost even the same color too, I love it.

I like everything about the car, except the wheels and ride height. Give it a decent drop and some meaty tires around a mesh wheel or something, perfect. 


But it's his car, and I have to admit, it is crazy which was the point. So it's all good, it's what makes the car scene so awesome!

I saw that blue Camaro, the first photo in the story, this year at Road America. And wow, the tires were massive on that thing, and he could just whip it around anything. And that Rocket Bunny RX-7 was there too, you did know that car was the US debut of that kit? Debut during a NASCAR race in Wisconsin. who'd of guessed. 


But after seeing it myself, and this post, I'm starting to like the Optima Challenge. Seeing how the cars move and hustle around those tight courses is insane.

I wish we here in the states had cool hill climb venues like that. I went to the Prescott hill climb in England last year and it was awesome. I love the tight narrow roads they use. Not to mention all the awesome classics there. 


And to be on topic a little, I really want a Morgan. Always have, and even more now.

Yea like Rotorhead said, there were a few AWD Mustangs built back in the '60s and '70s, including in '65. They look completely normal from the outside, which make them completely unassuming. 


And that Rampage Camaro won the Gran Turismo award, so be looking forward to driving that in the future in game.

And here's a possibly silly question, but I've always wondered why their logo is an F instead of a P.

I know a lot of people who don't get drag racing, and I always tell them it's awesome. I've been to two historic drag events here in Michigan this year, and I left both times with a smile, and almost bleeding ears thanks to the funny cars from the '70s. And then there's the altered wheelbases. They are easily near the top of the list of the coolest race cars out there.

Michelle Mouton, Shirley Muldowney. They're just two examples, but they both jumped into two of the most extreme types of racing and were amazing at it. I was/still am a photographer for a rally team here in the States, and our driver is a girl. She loves it, she drives her rally car all over town, and always tries to help out the crew when they're working on her car. There's a few female rally drivers in the Rally America that come and go, and they just enjoy racing. My mom is even a little into cars. She goes to rallies and on the rare occasion a car show. She didn't really grow up in a car centered family, her brother had some nice muscle cars, but she just kind of got into it herself and with my dad. Even some of my friends that are girls seem to understand cars a little more. One even wanted to try drifting in the snow once, that's when she buried my car in snow bank. But at least she was having fun with something automotive. I don't know if there's a point to that long comment, but I feel like I've been lucky with female car enthusiasts. Or at least semi interested in a way. You better believe my girlfriend, whenever that happens, will be surrounded by cars, and if she doesn't like them now, hopefully someday she'll show some interest. If not, no worries.

I've always loved the stuff I've seen from BTCC. I always remember the drivers just pushing each other like it was just part of the way to race. Then the way they just hop the curbs like it's nothing is awesome.

I used to play Midtown Madness back in the day like it was my job, and I had every mod and custom car out there. But the one I remember the most was the Rapid Fit Mondeo. I'm not sure why, but I think it was a mix of my young age and see a race car that sat so low but looked so good, and a car I've never seen before in America. I saw it as a cooler racing version of the Taurus. And the Nissan Primera brings up memories, but I can't pinpoint them other than just a feeling of my past.

I like how he went from a Beetle, to a Ferrari to a Lola. Talk about an epic history.


I've been complaining that racing is kind to the privateer anymore because of what he said, high price, non street legal, etc. But that is pretty awesome that he's trying to make a car that is a through back to the days of racing where anyone could race. That is probably the coolest thing someone can do in the car world like him with money and being well known. If I had the money for one, whatever it may cost and be, I'd be first in line to get one and race it everywhere and anywhere I could. I can't wait to see where it goes.


None of those were questions, I'm just amazed that someone had the same thought as me and is trying to change it.

My only negative note here is, don't show a story shot in the winter in August. I live in Michigan and the last thing I want to see on a nice warm August day is snow. And wasn't this the car at Air Lift in Michigan, or is this after your Michigan visit? Either way it's Michigan/Illinois snow, NO!


I like the car though, so clean.

@itswhitenoise It's an awesome garage. People bring in their cars during the car show too. That alone is usually pretty crazy. A few years ago a guy brought in the most recent B.A.T. concept car from '08. Vettel's F1 car from the Detroit Auto Show this year showed up, you can never really guess what will show up until you get there. If you guys are ever around Ann Arbor, MI during the first of the month, I'll get you there. Happens every month!

There's a place like that here in Michigan kind of. It's an unmarked building filled with about 100 cars from a mid '80s Diablo to about five E-Types and Rolls and Cadillacs. It's a storage place for locals around, and every first Saturday of the month they have a car show, but the only way to know about it is if someone "in the know" tells you about it. Reminds me a lot of this place, just the one you guys have here, has a lot rarer cars and it's all one person. Very cool place though!

So cars like this are built in the peoples garages and stuff? I can't even fathom the cars I've seen here that people have built themselves. I mean, I had a hell of a time just just swapping out my clutch in my 240, but a lot of that is due to or incredibly cold winter here in Michigan we just had and the fact that our garage is only a two car and not heated. But the people in Scandinavia are just insane with their cars.
