The Can-Am racing series was by far and coolest and one of the craziest racing series that was ever to exist. Huge horsepower, big wings, and even bigger tires made these all out monstrosities something to behold. Only some of the best drivers in the world were crazy enough to climb in behind the wheel and pilot these wild beasts. Drive too slow and the aero doesn’t work so you’d crash. Drive to soft and the tires won’t get hot, and you crash. Bring a Trailer is currently listing one of the all-time greats, the 1968 Lola T-160 and it doesn’t get much prettier than a car like this.
Jerry Seinfeld is in the midst of a lawsuit claiming that he allegedly sold a faked Porsche for over $1.5 million dollars. The entire process will still take some time to sort out, but the buyer, who purchased the Porsche at a Gooding and Co. auction last year is claiming this vehicle isn’t what it’s supposed to be. The claim is that it’s a 1958 Porsche 356 Speedster, but the buyer is claiming that the vehicle isn’t a GS/GT like promised at the auction and Seinfeld himself knew about it! Apparently, Seinfeld is working with the buyer to make sure everything is handled properly and corrected, but what a bummer for the buyer! You can read more about this story over on Jalopnik.
There was a rather large game this past weekend, and we had to pick our favorite automotive commercial from the spotlight ads. We went with the Mercedes A-Class commercial because it’s both funny and informative. It features the all-new voice control in the A-Class, but you can watch for yourself as Willy Coyote and the Road Runner also make a nice appearance. Let us know what your favorite commercial was, or at a minimum what your least favorite was because it wasn’t the best year for commercials.
