Even more impressive then the fact that the 747 was designed and engineered on drafting tables by hand is the fact that it went from Juan Trippe at Pan Am requesting a big ass plane to production model delivery in just 2 years... That's staggering when you think about what was involved (they didn't even have a… » 6/29/14 3:50pm 6/29/14 3:50pm

I often feel like in stunts like this I'm the only one that's surprised they DIDN'T crash... I get having confidence in your ability to pull it off, but statistically speaking his odds of wrecking were substantially higher then his odds of pulling it off. Hell, why wasn't the medivac helicopter on-scene beforehand!?! » 6/19/14 4:35pm 6/19/14 4:35pm

Have you considered sending him a link to this article? That, may in fact, give some proof of intent to the guy... Just saying it's doubtful you started this site and wrote all these articles with the sole intent of scammin this dude out of a few grand. » 6/19/14 4:11pm 6/19/14 4:11pm

I will say Atlanta's carpool lanes are pretty awesome... On our way to Florida for the 12 Hours of Sebring this year we ended up hitting Atlanta right at rush hour (or stop for the night was south of Atlanta in... somewhere, I don't recall). Anywho, we were dreading it, but I saw the HOV +2 and in we hopped. It felt… » 5/08/14 7:47pm 5/08/14 7:47pm

I've dealt with it in some small commercial building projects, low-scale stuff and I was involved from a distance but point is. How and WHY do you fuck that up? The guys I worked with on it seemed to be able to weave and install it as almost second-nature... I don't get it, sound like serious corruption and a… » 5/08/14 6:11pm 5/08/14 6:11pm

I love Lime Rock, I also have a full iracing setup in my house (I have a home office... sometimes I need to blow off steam)... DO THIS and I'll be on. I regularly join and race with other teams in hosted sessions (the TRG crew seems to be on quite a bit), it's a lot of fun. » 5/08/14 4:05pm 5/08/14 4:05pm

I believe the reason this article gets reshared so frequently isn't an error, but actually the authors being pretty smart/efficient. This story was recently in the top one or two comments on a front page article (it may have even been on the front page... I don't recall). So, when that story gets on a site like… » 5/07/14 2:59pm 5/07/14 2:59pm

Oddly enough I'm about to walk out my door to go look at a 1991 Grand Wagoneer (the rare "final edition", only ~1600 made that year) as a possible restoration candidate. I had one a few years ago but it turned out once we got into it the rust was so bad that it went from a resto candidate to a part-out. » 5/06/14 11:00am 5/06/14 11:00am

I have a similar story. I was in my 2013 Charger R/T Max AWD last year I picked up a friend from the bar, who just so happened to also be a state trooper. We're in a typical small town, and we notice the beater Nissan Maxima in front of us is swerving pretty heavy, especially considering we're only going 25mph at the… » 5/06/14 5:47am 5/06/14 5:47am
