    To any car lover, this is a real pain.

    Driver, 27, crashes his rare $1.15M McLaren just one DAY after picking it up

    I'd say she got a little "loose" on the brother, one of the twins hit a patch of ice in the old Chev Trailblazer, jumped a ditch and up the bank into a row of hedge trees, daughter is fine, but Trailblazer, not so much??

The Artcurial car collection department found 60 luxury brand cars which had been stored for 50 years under makeshift shelters in the west of France. Another classic included in the sale is...

    Nice design of the BMW. It looks like the vehicle in Tron movie. Will they ever make this vehicle real?

    Well of course but you're not comparing apples to apples here.
    A base corvette is more than double the price of a 'Stang.

    Of course a GT350R is more expensive than a run of the mill vette but that's not a fair comparo either. When the new C.7 ZR1 comes out I'm sure it's be close to the $125K price point. A Z06 is already a hair short of century mark.

    Short answer NO. They may make a vehicle that looks somewhat like this but won;t be exactly. This is an artist concecept, possible technology demonstrator and does not adhere to the rules that makes a car viable to be sold to the general public or for mass production. Things like emissions, safety features, crash standards, creature comforts etc.
    That windshield alone that goes halfway into the hood is already a BIG no no for production.

    As a teenager, myself and my brother Greg (God rest his soul) - who went on to play four years college football for BYU on scholarship...he played with Jim Mcmahon while there - we fixed up a 1967 Dodge GTS.

    383 cu in, Holly four barrel carb, glass packs, nice wheels, nice tires.

    She was a beaut and we worked on her all the time. We both ended up using her in college until I got married.

    Lots of Hay Hauling money went into that hot rod.
