Judge Phil posted a pick of his Lemons Jacket with new patches

While a couple were given by teams as bribes some of the cooler ones like the K Car or Cordoba ones were found on eBay. So of course this made me look them up and found that this pretty easy to find and pretty cool looking Oldsmobile Patch

Of course I also found a couple places that will produce custom patches for you. Of course for that we would need some sort of logo. If only some award winning artist had promised to make us a logo. Would that be great, really FRANZ GAMBE Wouldn't that be great.

The $500 E30 Craigslist Mexican Adventure

This is the epic story of a Chicagoian's $500 Craigslist find. Its just amazing what no money, a 20 year old car, and one of the most prestigious and world popular (outside the US for some reason)racing series when thrown together becomes.

First is the drivers story.

And then the Co-Drivers Story

Rims technology good enough for a ferrari race car

The Formula 1 Season started this weekend and among the controversial technological advances were the Ferrari's rims.

Rule changes have made all the teams remove the the spats all the teams had on their wheels to increase airflow and cool the brakes. While all the other teams seems to have just taken them off and figured they would have to deal with it Ferrari decided to add some extra parts to the rim to make for the loss. Here is an article detailing it.

When you look at the rims of the Cutlass Ciera you will notice that the holes are lifted up and angled out to get the same effect that the add pieces to the Ferrari rims do.

Sure the Ferrari rims are for more elaborate and fancier, but that is what you get for 21 years of extra development and millions of dollars to design it. Ours came stock on the car and can be had at junkyards for $35.

5 points for Safety

Thanks to Eric and Martha we have a 5 point racing harness which fits nicely in our budget.(meaning free)

Of course after seeing how sweet it looks in the car I sort of want to steal it for my own car. Think duct tape would be good enough to install it or should I use Super Glue.

Why put it in Music Videos

You making a music video, what would you rather have a Bugatti Veyron or a beat up Escort.
