Fast & Furious Car Theft!

E-mail Print PDF
 

Is nothing sacred? Not even a man’s car(s)?
 
Not according to a story that the HollywoodReporter.com broke recently. The story states the estate of Paul Walker, star of the Fast and Furious movie series, is demanding the return of seven cars that were allegedly stolen from the actor’s extensive car collection.
 
According to court papers, an individual who handled the paperwork for Walker’s car collection stands accused of removing the cars from a warehouse and hiding them for his own benefit. And, the kicker is, the guy allegedly swiped the cars mere hours after the Nov. 30, 2013 crash that killed Walker.  
 
The suit states that in March 2014, the man provided Walker’s estate with an inventory of his collection that included 31 cars—a mere six cars fewer than the estate alleges should have been on the list. The missing cars include a 2011 Porsche GT3 RS and six others.
 
Walker’s estate is suing for the return of the cars or the value of the vehicles if they cannot be delivered.
 
Walker was killed when the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT he was riding in slammed into a light pole and burst into flames in Valencia, CA.

It’s shaping up to be a cold weekend here in the Midwest so, fire up your 918 Spyder, slap on a set of spiked tires, and hit the ice for a bit of hoonage.
 
What’s that you say? You don’t have a Porsche or spiked tires? No need to worry, we’ve got you covered. Just sit back and check out a few of our favorite ice driving videos.
 
Admittedly, if we lived conveniently close to a nice frozen lake, and actually owned cars that we wouldn’t mind smashing into a stray polar bear, we’d totally do the same thing—Minus the whole car breaking through the ice thing.








And last but not least, what to do if the ice isn’t quite as thick as you thought.

Monster Truck Smashes Speed Record…And A Camaro!

E-mail Print PDF
 

Have you ever dreamed of tearing up a straight track behind the wheel of a monster truck in an attempt to break a world record? Well, neither had we. But, after watching the “Raminator” set a new Guinness World Record earlier this month—we still aren’t sure how the heck this made it into the hallowed pages of the Guinness Book.
 
As anyone with redneck friends can tell you, monster trucks were built to smash, jump, and crush cars like grapes. AND, they definitely were't built to reach speeds of nearly 100 mph.
 
Despite this well know fact, driver Mark Hall pushed his Hemi-powered, car crushing monster machine to a top speed of 99.1 mph down the straightaway at the Circuit of Americas in Texas to set a new record.
 
According to a press release issued by the truck’s owner, Hall Bros, Racing, the truck has a 565 cubic inch supercharged alcohol-powered drag-racing Hemi mounted in the center of the truck that puts out a massive 2,000 hp. When you consider that the truck weighs a in at a hefty 10,300 lbs—and that each tire weighs over 900 lbs.—it’s hard to believe this top-heavy beast could achieve such an impressive speed.
 
Check out the videos below and let us know in the comments whether you think this beast has what it takes to break the century mark on its next record breaking run.



And, for your viewing pleasure the Raminator doing what it does best…
