Drag cars. Love them or hate them, they never seem disappoint underneath the hood.
I’m sure some of you are familiar with this particular Audi R8, which belongs to Red Bull skier Jon Olsson. Rain, snow or shine, he drives a variety of his personal supercars to where ever he needs to go.
In this video, posted this morning on his Facebook page, he shows us just how he takes care of business.
“It sure has been awhile since I’ve updated” is a phrase I use all too often on my website. Why? Well, I don’t like posting stuff that plenty of other media outlets already cover. In my struggle to post the most original content possible, I may go on a hiatus from time to time.
I haven’t forgot about this website, though! I’m slowly, but surely, back on track to focusing more of my time keeping this place updated with fresh new material on a monthly basis, even if it’s stuff about my own personal car-related life (which you’ll be seeing more of). Stay tuned!
I’ll leave you with this picture of Daigo Saito’s 1,200HP Toyota Soarer.
Most people are lucky enough to see 1, maybe 2 Bugatti Veyron’s in their lifetime, but when you work next door to the Mullin Automotive Museum, which happens to house the largest Bugatti collection in continental North America, you often come across things that most people won’t ever see in their lifetime.
I’m the world’s biggest procrastinator…
A teaser of what’s to come…
This past weekend was USDM Jam in Mie, Japan. I almost didn’t get coverage from this event, but luckily my friend & photographer Masaki Hamashima was able to get the time off of work to make the 2+ hour drive from Osaka to Mie. Major thanks, Masaki!
Are we in the right place?
I remember back in the late 90’s when HIN was at its prime, when “Nights” actually meant that event started at 7pm & ran until 2AM. Since then, I lost count of how many different owners HIN has gone through, most of which did a pretty bad job at hosting the event. A lot of them failed at bringing back the event to what it used to be, but the guys who run it now did a bit of a better job. Not nearly as close, but it’ll do. Anyways, the turn out was pretty good & the crowd was steady throughout the night. I’m not going to post every single car at the event, but here’s the cars I think are worth mentioning.
