Mid Engine Single Seater

Mid engine, single seat vehicle. Built from scratch. (not a Kit) How this car came to be: Three years ago my wife left Des Moines for Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She was driving a 1994 Chrysler LHS. She had her trusty cell phone and she had triple "A" (gold) with 100 mile towing. There was only one slight problem, there was a slight water leak in the cooling system. My twin sons were riding with her. They were eleven. My sons told me the story. According to them trouble started about twenty miles from Des Moines. That's when the red dash lights and bells started. She answered those warnings by pressing down harder on the accelerator. Later the car answered back with a loud knocking sound. She stomped harder on the gas. "Half a league half a league, Half a league onward, All in the valley of Death Rode the six hundred: 'Forward, the Light Brigade!" Then the knocking sound and the vibration seemed to double. "It sounded like two drummers having a drum battle" according to one of my sons. I noticed a sort of glazed look in the eye of my other son. He said there was a lot of smoke coming out the back of the car. "Theirs not to make reply, Theirs not to reason why, Theirs but to do & die, Into the valley of Death Rode the six hundred. " I asked my wife why she didn't use the cell phone and triple "A" gold towing option. It seems that because we had all been to her sister-in-laws funeral the day before, she just knew that the dead woman's spirit would get her through this difficulty. So she just gave it a little more gas and pressed on. "Cannon to right of them, Cannon to left of them, Cannon in front of them Volley'd & thunder'd; Storm'd at with shot and shell, Boldly they rode and well, Into the jaws of Death, Into the mouth of Hell Rode the six hundred. " Finally, they did get the Cedar. But the car didnt quite make it all the way home. When the little lady slowed to leave the interstate at the Cedar exit, the car died and could t get up. "When can their glory fade? O the wild charge they made! All the world wonder'd. Honour the charge they made! Honour the Light Brigade, Noble six hundred! " I found that I could sell the car to the junk yard for $150. Repair it, or get really upset about it. So I repaired it. While repairing the engine I found that it had a single overhead cam with roller rocker bearings, four valves per cylinder, and hemispherical combustion chambers. Also it had a very short transaxle and the engine was positioned for to aft, not side to side. I was going to just put the car back together (I really was) but with the engine / transaxle sitting on the floor I realized that I was looking at something very similar to a formula 1 power plant. That's when I decided to design and build a mid-engine, single-seater. It's a work in progress and probably always will be. It has been fun to design and build, and even more fun to drive (I would imagine).

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

Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on official racing events. This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more money than driving skills... (Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.) Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10 with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up, don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video. The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with money. Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre" is incorrect spelling.

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.
