I’ll be honest, before SEMA, Hotchkis Sport Suspension wasn’t a company I was very familiar with. After a quick look at their website you get the impression their bread and butter is modern suspension systems for classic domestic muscle cars. I’ve always loved the idea of an old school hunk of Detroit steel with the handling of a modern car.
This video has a certain feel to it, like I’ve seen this style somewhere before. The way it’s filmed reminds me of a top gear car intro minus Jeremy Clarkson ‘segwaying’ (if that’s a word) into abusing the hell out of it in the following minutes. Check it out and see if you agree…
With the new car season upon us I took a look back through some old pictures and found a few shots I took from events and meets back in the ’09 to ’10 days. Really something to see how much friend’s cars have changed in only a few short years. Lets begin…
Here’s a cool find about the old days of land speed records. This one was “Inspired by the life and death of German racer Bernd Rosemeyer whose career came to an tragic end when he was killed attempting to regain the land speed record on the Autobahn in 1938.”
Absolutely love this concept, well both concepts featured in this vid. Old cars restored with modern tech under the hood and the idea of building a car your not afraid to use and drive on a daily basis.
The Gumball 3000 is one of those things that is definitely on my to do wishlist as well I’m sure on many of yours. Until the day comes where I can experience it myself, videos like this will have to fill the void.
Here’s a cool video I came across last week showing the lengths that Porsche engineers go to ensure a quality product. Pretty cool to see a 911 thrown into extreme environments, I’m so used to seeing cars like this get babied and not enjoyed to the fullest. I think a 911 could make a pretty decent all year daily even in our Canadian climate, what do you figure?
