Mazda RX-7 Crash at 225 MPH!!

At this speed, the tire patch that is touching the ground is LESS than the
width of your index finger across each tire.
Furthermore each patch is encountering dust and small sand-like particles
often. If you could keep the pace with this car and remain standing next
to it, you could reach over and push it away from you sideways with little
The announcer claims that an additional burst of oxygen in the fuel causes
a loss of control, but in all likelyhood, the wind just changes ever so
slightly, or began to blow (even lightly) and it was actually this that
nudged the cars nose off by just enough to start a flat spin.
Yes, a flat spin, like an airplane goes into!
No rudder on this vehicle, so no control!
2009 Cadillac XLR-V Supercharged Start Up, Exhaust, Short Drive, and In Depth Tour
Pardon the voiceovers, had to fix some scenes that got destroyed by wind.
The day I filmed this car was one of the worst I've been through in a
while, thanks! In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2009
Cadillac XLR-V. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and
exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and
noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine
and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under
acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

Mickey Thompson Breaks 400 MPH Speed Barrirer
Thompson's life in the fast lane provides ample material for the
filmmakers. From the drag strips, to desert racing to land speed record
challenges, to car building, designing and race promotion Thompson earned
his place as a certified automotive icon.
He started calling himself the Fastest American on Wheels in 1958 after
setting a record of 194 miles per hour. His goal was to break the world
record of 394.2 miles per hour set in 1947. He began to build a world land
speed record car -- the Challenger 1.
Thompson took his new car out to the Bonneville Salt Flats on October 6,
1959 and piloted it to a World Speed Record of 363.48 miles per hour. He
also set a world speed record in A/BFS Class that remained unbeaten
until1990 when Al Teague broke it at 389.372 miles per hour in his
In 1960, Thompson returned to the Bonneville Salt Flats with a modified
Challenger 1 for another record attempt. Its four 410 cubic-inch engines
secured his title when he set a new American record at 330.51 miles per
hour. He bested the world speed with a run at 407 miles per hour (which
was faster than any man had drive
a car before) but crashed before he could make a second run and thus secure
the official record.
The Challenger 1 had its last record run two year later on July 24, 1962.
The poor conditions of the salt flats halted the first attempt because he
couldnt get any traction as the car bounced on the salt bed. He found a
smoother part of the Flats for another run and turned in a speed of 357
mph. But he announced that the Challengers days on the Salt Flats were

2004 Cadillac XLR Retractable Hardtop Convertible
I thought you'd like a look at this beautiful 2004 Cadillac XLR. It is a
convertible that features a very cool retractable hardtop. This car was
built for performance and comfort. The exterior is painted in Crimson Pearl
with a black leather interior. The XLR was built on the same platform as
the Corvette but had a $30k premium over the Corvette. This car is powered
by Cadillac's Northstar 32 valve V8 with 320 h.p. mated to a 5 speed
automatic transmission. This combination will give you 25 mpg on the
highway. The XLR has only 42,000 original miles with less than 1k miles on
the new tires. This car has power everything! Options include: Power
Windows, Power Locks, Power Heated Seats, AM/FM/CD player, GPS and Push
Button start to name a few. For some fun in the sun all this Caddy asks for
is a touch of a button and the Power Retractable hard top disappears!
Thanks for taking a look!
