    Re: The Car Topic

    It has made for an eventful season. It has gotten to the point of “What are they gonna do next?” Sad note this begins the long season of withdrawal. No more racing NASCAR,F1,Indy,Supercar, all done until next year. Nothing to watch on the weekends.

    Holy hell they're finally being allowed to do it, the Absolute Madmen. Wonder if it's because Ferrari is finally relenting or they're using some other underpinnings and power.

    Hmm... it looks like they're using the rear architecture of an Alfa Romeo for it. Still, pretty neat that someone is bringing back the Lancia Stratos (even if they're only making 25).

    Well they had allot of trouble getting them out, they wanted to do it years ago like the article said just, Ferrari as always, is a stick in the mud for reaosns laid out in the article about the 430. So the fact they're even making 25 is impressive. Especially since they're all built to order with a variety of specifications. I can't wait to see the off road spec.

    Also if that's too exclusive Lister Bell has a neat Kit car based off of the old one. http://www.listerbell.com/ It honestly looks pretty damn good compared to most Stratos Replica's I've seen.

    Speaking of cars, racing season has begun again! The Winternationals for the NHRA are going on this weekend at Pomona, CA. Plus pre-season testing for Indycar is going on right now the Phoenix Speedway.

    Re: The Car Topic

    So the other day Porsche revealed their liveries for the 911 RSR's they'll be running in Le Mans this year in celebration of their 70th anniversary this year (in motorsport) and as a big Porsche fan I have to say I'm head over heels in love with these.

    Personally I love this especially the pink pig as it was extremely unique, and the Rothman's livery as well though barring branding because can't have Cigarette companies on liveries anymore (RIP Marlboro liveries)

    Eeeugh, that livery reminds me of Sahara Force India's color that they have for their Formula One cars.

    Speaking of race cars, the museum I work at will rotating out it's cars for it's annual Summer Car Collection and this year's theme is Vintage Motor Racing, and it will be featuring a special tribute to legendary American driver Dan Gurney. One of the cars on display will be this beauty:

    Re: The Car Topic

    Anyone here have a bike? If so have you ever pulled a trailer with your bike? Im considering getting a hitch and trailer for my honda vtx 1300 so i can go camping further out. Ive been looking at this https://theusatrailerstore.com/lumin...rcycle-trailer it looks well built and like it would last a long time. And have a lot of storage.

    Your best bet is to check Goldwing sites, anytime I see a bike hauling a trailer it's usually a Goldwing
