My Uncle is The Best Kind of Insane

He needs both a wakeboard boat and pontoon boat to replace his current fleet before summer (#richpeopleproblems) and today he texts me with this that could fulfill both roles as both purpose-built tow boat and party barge. 28 feet long, seats 15 goddamn people, and powered by TWO 400hp SBC’s LAWD HAVE MERCY. » 3/31/15 7:55pm 2 minutes ago

How In The Hell.......

I never thought I'd ever see one on CL. Much to my surprise, I just found this all original '77 Matador on my local craigslist. While it may be utterly terrible to drive, I'm just amazed that there's still one in existence that's in good shape. Resto-mod, anyone? » 3/31/15 7:50pm 6 minutes ago

My big break in television advertising

So our local Charter Media affiliate is doing their freebie TV commercial for us. The last one was done years ago and is embarrassing, as I'm sure this one will be. Below is their proposed script, and my brilliantly re-imagined one follows. I think it'll be a hit. » 3/31/15 7:37pm 20 minutes ago

I need some help

Just had an excellent idea for a design, but I can't find a good picture of a tire worn to the point of showing cords. Does anyone know the term for this/have a good picture of extreme tire wear like this? » 3/31/15 7:33pm 24 minutes ago

Outrun the Explosion - Formula One's Insane 1986 Turbo Era

1986 marked the first only time before the 2014 season when Formula 1 went all-turbo. Except that the '86 cars went to top fuel dragster territory when it came to specific engine output. Stay on track and try not to explode. » 3/31/15 7:33pm 24 minutes ago

New tires for #MR2sday

Wouldn't normally post about new tires, but it's #MR2sday! Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Specs 196/50R15s all around. I quite liked the last set. Alignment monkeys fucked up again, but hopefully I can get them to get the camber back where it should be before autocross this weekend. » 3/31/15 7:27pm 29 minutes ago

deadmau5 is on a Batshit Automotive Shopping Spree

This past winter, Canadian electronic music artist and owner of epic personalized license plate collection Joel Zimmerman (better known as deadmau5), has amassed a car collection that’s not exactly similar to your average celebrity / musicians’ garage. I say this because your average celebrity has a G-wagon out front,… » 3/31/15 7:20pm 37 minutes ago

Summer tires fitted - MR2sday

Now I just have to refurb the wheels before putting them on the MR2. Color suggestions would be much appreciated! Wheels and car for reference. » 3/31/15 7:09pm 48 minutes ago

To The Kids Riding Through My Aunt's Neighborhood In The Golf Cart:

Yes, you two, the ones riding shirtless through the rain in a golf cart through a neighborhood holding an (at least) 3 foot tall bong. We may not partake in the same recreational activities, but I would be remiss if I didn't tell you that I admire the scarcity of fucks that you seem to give. Godspeed gentlemen, may… » 3/31/15 7:01pm 56 minutes ago
