Lady Luck was on our side last week as the Legendary Team made its way to
the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea, Michigan.
An all night drive through a snow storm saw us pull into the proving
grounds parking lot at the crack of dawn. It was cold and overcast but no
sign of rain or snow. It looked like the weather would cooperate, the next
hurdle was having MOPAR engineers check out the Cuda. The car passed with
flying colors, testament to the sweat and dedication put in by everyone at
Legendary over the last year.
Then it was off to the black lake for some real world handling tests in
preparation for the 4.75 mile oval and a crack a breaking the 200 mph mark.
Both the Cuda and the Enzo look impressive on the track but once the sun
began to come out late that morning the setting was perfect for our high
speed run. I think we captured some spectacular footage of a once in a life
After a brief mishap, when the Cuda lost its windshield trim at 190 mph,
Peter was ready to go. We could hear the Cuda coming long before we could
see her, as the cars went by they sounded like jet fighters. Top speed 208
mph with still some leftwe did it!

Getting the opportunity to take delivery of a brand new Bugatti Veyron doesn't come around too
often. Thanks to my good friends I had the chance to get the once in a
lifetime experience and filmed it to share with all of you.
Getting from LA to San Diego on a friday night is an absolute nightmare
with gridlock traffic most of the way. Luckily I was driving my friends
Maybach which kept us comfortable for the drive there. The owner of
Symbolic Motors was extremely generous and waited for our late night
arrival to pickup the car. When we got there he had the new Bentley
lighting up the beautiful Bugatti. It was truly a surreal experience.
Once we sorted through everything that came with the Veyron we started our trip back to
Los Angeles. Make sure you subscribe for part 2 where I record our
incredible drive back including us getting pulled over!
Hot Rod Time Machine: Old vs New
Just How Good Were the Good Ol' Days? To find out, we've gathered three
