R35 GTR vs American Muscle
the GT-R's driver had a weak launch. Plus the GT-R isn't built for straight
lines. the GT-R is quite impressive for straights, but it depends on the
driver. its built to scream around corners on a track. that's where true
driving skill is found. Yes doing 1/4 mile runs takes skill because it is
completely different from doing a 1/4 mile on a typical road.
I would love to see those two cars on the track.

'CHEVROLET TRUCKS - Chevrolet Trucks are Champs of the Alcan Run, "a road
that lies under Northern skies, toward the land of the midnight sun. It
crosses the crest of the great Northwest, and it's known as the Alcan run".
This military type march, presents the "trucks of the task force fleet" and
shows them driving on the rough mountainous roads.'

uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise
reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound,
though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).
The Alaska Highway (also known as the Alaskan Highway, Alaska-Canadian
Highway, or ALCAN Highway) was constructed during World War II for the
purpose of connecting the contiguous United States to Alaska through
Canada. It begins at the junction with several Canadian highways in Dawson
Creek, British Columbia, and runs to Delta Junction, Alaska, via
Whitehorse, Yukon. Completed in 1942 at a length of approximately 2,700
kilometres (1,700 mi), as of 2012 it is 2,232 km (1,387 mi) long. The
difference in distance is due to constant reconstruction of the highway,
which has rerouted and straightened out numerous sections. The highway was
opened to the public in 1948. Legendary over many decades for being a
rough, challenging drive, the highway is now paved over its entire length.
An informal system of historic mileposts developed over the years to denote
major stopping points; Delta Junction, at the end of the highway, makes
reference to its location at "Historic Milepost 1422." It is at this point
that the Alaska Highway meets the Richardson Highway, which continues 155
km (96 mi) to the city of Fairbanks. This is often regarded, though
unofficially, as the northern portion of the Alaska Highway, with Fairbanks
at Historic Milepost 1520. Mileposts on this stretch of highway are
measured from Valdez, rather than the Alaska Highway. The Alaska Highway is
popularly (but unofficially) considered part of the Pan-American Highway,
which extends south (despite its discontinuity in Panama) to Argentina...
Proposals for a highway to Alaska originated in the 1920s. Thomas
MacDonald, director of the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads, dreamed of an
international highway spanning the United States and Canada. In order to
promote the highway, Slim Williams originally travelled the proposed route
by dog sled. Since much of the route would pass through Canada, support
from the Canadian government was crucial. However, the Canadian government
perceived no value in putting up the required funds to build the road,
since the only part of Canada that would benefit was not more than a few
thousand people in the Yukon.
However, some route consideration was given. The preferred route would pass
through the Rocky Mountain Trench from Prince George, British Columbia to
Dawson City before turning west to Fairbanks, Alaska.
The attack on Pearl Harbor and beginning of the Pacific Theatre in World
War II, coupled with Japanese threats to the west coast of North America
and the Aleutian Islands, changed the priorities for both nations. On
February 6, 1942 the construction of the Alaska Highway was approved by the
United States Army and the project received the authorization from the U.S.
Congress and President Franklin D. Roosevelt to proceed five days later.
Canada agreed to allow construction as long as the United States bore the
full cost, and that the road and other facilities in Canada be turned over
to Canadian authority after the war ended.
The official start of construction took place on March 8, 1942...

1971 Chevy Vega Commercial - Worst Car Ever Made in the USA in Modern Times
The Chevy Vega was built to compete with the likes of VW, Toyota and Datsun
in the USA. It was Chevy's first Sub Compact Car. Although there is
always some debate. This car is considered by many as being one of or
actually, the Worst Car Ever Made. It's very subjective. It was heavily
recalled by GM for prolbems, the alluminium engines warped, the front cowl
sections rusted thru in a short period of time. The overall build quality
was very suspect. The Ford Pinto had some Safety issues or at least a bad
reputation earned rightly or wrongly with the placement of the Gas Tank
and the AMC Gremlin had detractors to it's styling but was reliable car,
but the Vega was real junk.
