The Smoking Tire heads to the Motor City for the annual Woodward Dream Cruise, the biggest single-day car show in the USA. But we need a ride, and what makes a better show car in Detroit than the Firebreather Prototype?
Art Morrison 1955 Chevy Bel Air - Faster Than a Ferrari?
The Smoking Tire hits Supercar Sunday and the canyons with the Art Morrison
1955 Bel Air, one of the best handling hot rods around. We toss this 55
year-old car through some of the tightest curves in California to find out
if there really is such a thing as a Hot Rod for drivers.
The 180 MPH 1969 Dodge Daytona: "Project Angrier"
The Smoking Tire heads to East Hampton to terrorize yuppies in the baddest
muscle car around: Mr. Angry's 1969 Dodge Daytona. Blasphemous to some,
envied by others, this is one tire-shredding muscle machine we'll take in
our garage any day.
2011 Shelby GT500 vs. 600 HP 2011 "Firebreather" Camaro
The Smoking Tire hits the Mailbu canyons for one last hurrah with our
Shelby GT500, and we brought along our closest competitor: the Classic
Design Concepts/Exxodus Pictures "Firebreather," a 600-horsepower
Firebird-converted Chevy Camaro. For more info about the
Firebreather, check out www.Firebreathercar.com
Sneak peak at a one off custom Trans-Am and GTO Concept /Camaro Morph
These are the new 2010/11 Camaro's that have been
completely customized by the tallented gentlemen at OTTO body shop in
Nebraska. Great guys and maybe an even greater pair of cars that bring out
the boy in any real american car lover. Hats off to these guys and there
vision. Ps In the video I guessed and said they base car was a 2008 or 9
Camaro. Its a 2011 come

Best of the 2010 Bullrun Rally - Too Hot for TV!
We shot a TON of video on the 2010 Bullrun Rally, more than we could fit
into our daily videos. Here are the best moments from this year's rally,
with tons of never-before seen footage. We find the best pull-overs, the
best personalities, and the best driving shots from this amazing,
Motorcycle Briefcase made by Honda!!!
I think Tony Stark has one of these as well.
mykarz: "...those scooters actually came as an optional accessory with i
think it was a civic or accord in like 82-83. They were built to
specifically fit in the trunk of that car, which is pretty cool in my
opinion. Only however many cars that were sold in that time span that
had those scooters added, are how many of those that exist. Its a super
rare little scooter, so you're lucky to see one."
Can a Nissan Versa beat a Corvette?
Matt always buys impractical cars and tries to justify them as practical,
even though they are far from it. Dan makes him put his money where his
mouth is by holding a practicality challenge against the most practical car
in the US: a base Nissan Versa.
Air Suspension - Can You Really Have it All?
In the past I've thought of air suspension as a modification reserved for
trucks, low riders, and show cars. But what about sports cars? Is it
possible to have the look you want at a show, the handling you want at the
limit, and the practicality of clearing speed bumps and driveways? The guys
from Accuair Suspensions say there is, so we put their Audi S4 to the test.
Lamborghini vs. Turbo Ford GT vs. Audi R8 Supercharged
The Smoking Tire heads out to Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in a 370Z
Roadster to find out which car can attain the highest speed on Spring
Mountain's 2.7 mile road course. Can Matt Farah, driving a Lamborghini
LP550-2, outgun a Twin turbo Ford GT and
a Supercharged Audi R8? We will see.

The $25,000 Challenge: BMW E46 M3 vs. Ford Fiesta ST
The BMW E46 M3 is regarded as one of the best drivers cars of all time, and
they can now be had for under $25,000. In our opinion, the Ford Fiesta ST
is the best new car you can buy for under $25,000. So, which is better? We
hit the canyons with both to find out.
