Fast Cars - Loud V8 Holden Torana Automobile Vehicle - Targa Tasmania 2011

More at http://www.thetraveltart.com and http://bit.ly/g5NbIl Fast Cars - Loud V8 Holden Torana Automobile Vehicle - Targa Tasmania 2011. High noise drive by of a tarmac rally car in Australia via a time trial undertaken on public roads. The Holden Torana is a circa 1970's muscle car at high speed. Very,very noisy automobile. Was great listening to the car as it went past! I didn't have anywhere to hide if this thing came off the road! Back in the 1970s, the Holden Torana was a very popular road car in Australia and was at the top of car sales for many years. It was small in size, but had a V8 engine (called a 308) which gave it a high power to weight ratio. Many car enthusiasts have maintained their Toranas until this day so some of them now are collectors items and are highly sought after by Holden fans. In the Targa Tasmania, there are many different categories of cars, including ones of different capacities, sizes and eras. This can range from classic cars to supercars like Ferraris and Lamborghinis. Petrol head heaven! The Targa Tasmania takes place all over the state of Tasmania around April of each year. This is quite different to dirt based rallies, as this rally occurs on public tarmac roads and cars must be able to be registered to be driven on public roads. What happens is that the rally occurs over a number of stages via a time trial. Marshalls go ahead and clear the course at specified times to ensure that other cars don't enter the course and cause an accident. They do a number of clear throughs before all of the cars line up and then race down the section at certain intervals. Members of the general public usually stay on the side of the road to check out all of the fast car action. While this car wasn't the fastest in the field, it was definitely one of the loudest out there and sounded like one of the best. Judging by some of the comments on this YouTube video, many rev-heads love this video simply because of the V8 engine noise! I stood next to this car at the starting line and I could barely hear myself speak. Turning the speakers up to maximum goes nowhere near the crazy noise that this sounds like in real life! And this is a fast car, considering the age and era of where this comes from. I think the driver has souped up this car a lot just for the noise factor! Holden is also a subsidiary of the General Motors organisation. The Holden Torana was also designed, engineered and built in Australia. It was famously driven by the legendary Peter Brock who won a number of Bathurst 1000 titles, which is an endurance race for touring cars that has been held for decades and is usually a battle between Holden and Ford. So anyway, for the fast car fans out there in petrol head land, enjoy this very short but sweet video of a V8 Holden Torana tearing down the road. The driver is really giving it heaps here!

V8 Cars - Holden Torana Standing Start - Targa Tasmania 2011 Australia
More at http://amzn.to/hTjVoh and http://www.thetraveltart.com/ V8 Car Holden Torana Loud Standing Start - Targa Tasmania 2011 Australia. Very, very loud video of the start line. I could barely hear myself above the engine noise. This is what you would call a muscle car in the United States, like a Camaro or Ford Mustang. Australia loves producing their version of the American muscle car. I really love the comments from everyone below about how good this sounds! This is obviously a highly modified V8 car (or Muscle car) that sounds fantastic! The way cars should sound me thinks! I've written about this elsewhere on another related Holden Torana video ripping down the road as fast as possible. Anyway, the Holden Torana is a circa 1970's muscle car. Was great listening to the car at the starting line here, even though I now suffer from industrial deafness! I was right next to this beast! Back in the 1970s (yes, well over 40 years ago), the Holden Torana was a very popular road car in Australia. It was small in size, but had a large, loud and noisy V8 engine (called a 308) which gave it a high power to weight ratio. Many car enthusiasts have maintained their Toranas until this day so some of them now are collectors items and are highly sought after by Holden fans. This was the General Motors Holden weapon used against the massive Ford Falcon, and this is a rivalry that exists until today In the Targa Tasmania, there are many different categories of cars, including ones of different capacities, sizes and eras. This can range from classic cars to supercars like Ferraris and Lamborghinis. Petrol head heaven! The Targa Tasmania takes place all over the state of Tasmania around April of each year.

I'll never forget listening to this loud V8 muscle car, and neither will you!

Best Paint Touch-up Tricks: Mercedes G55
This is one of the worst key scratches I have ever seen. This car needed to be repainted, but I thought I would give it a shot...nothing to lose. It covered 3 separate door panels with varying depth levels. 98% of the 9 feet was through the clear coat, paint, base, and into the substrate. EXTREMELY bad scratch. In this episode, I discuss multiple ways to approach this type of paint damage. I want to be crystal clear: THIS CAR NEEDED TO BE REPAINTED FOR 90-100% satisfaction. My techniques here, with the understanding of the customer, had the best-case final results of 70% to 75% "better or touched-up" appearance. See how it turned out. Thx for watching! -L

Брошенные автомобили Дубая часть 2 (Abandoned Cars in Dubai part 2)
В каких-то городах особенно остро стоит проблема мусора, другие страдают от высокого уровня преступности, в третьих не найти доступного жилья. А вот проблема, с которой столкнулись жители Дубая -- совершенно особенная, можно сказать уникальная. Этот город задыхается от... брошенных роскошных автомобилей, которые покрываются толстым слоем пыли на парковках аэропорта и по обочинам дорог всего города. Если вам приходилось бывать в Дубае или вообще в Объединённых Арабских Эмиратах, то вы наверняка замечали, что там существует определённая автомобильная культура: самая последняя и самая крутая модель -- важнейший показатель статуса. Однако Дубай, как и весь остальной мир, тоже пережил тяжёлые времена. Иностранные инвесторы, преимущественно британцы, охотно инвестировали в стране с высокими нефтяными доходами и процветающим рынком недвижимости. Разбогатевшие эмигранты тратили сумасшедшие деньги на покупку последних моделей итальянских и немецких спортивных автомобилей, чтобы подчеркнуть свой статус миллионеров. А тут нагрянул экономический кризис и все пузыри полопались. Тысячи самых роскошных автомобилей, которые только можно вообразить, оказались никому не нужны -- с того самого момента как Дубай настиг финансовый крах. Они пылятся, брошенные хозяевами-эмигрантами и местными, которые в спешке покинули город, поскольку оказались не в состоянии расплатиться по огромным долгам. Понимая, что взятые в банке огромные ссуды им не осилить (а невыплаченный долг или даже возвращённый чек считаются в Дубае уголовным преступлением), владельцы роскошных авто в панике устремились в аэропорты, и улетели, чтобы никогда не вернуться. Бесчисленные Феррари, Порше, БМВ, Мерседесы и более скромные автомобили стоят бесхозными на автомобильной стоянке Международного аэропорта Дубая. На лобовых стёклах некоторых машин хозяева оставили кредитные документы и записки с извинениями. Некоторые оставлены прямо с ключами, и всё равно никому нет до них никакого дела.
