…It’s Website Wednesday: Google Street View – Laguna Seca?

Laguna Seca Street View

It’s no speed demon, but when the Google Street View car was snapping shots of the roads around Laguna Seca, it also managed to grab some track time with a few of the ALMS race cars, including the Corvette C6.R, the Flying Lizard Porsche GT3 RSR, the Lola B08/86 Mazda, the Acura ARX-01b and the Audi R10 TDI.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Mid-Engine Integra?


This might not look like an Acura NSX (which is good, ‘cause it’s not), but for Dave, it’s even better (and I hope it is, since Dave sold his NSX to build this). What is it, you ask?

It is a 1994 Acura Integra GSR that has been converted into a mid-engined, rear wheel drive concoction via a transplanted 1997 Honda Prelude VTEC engine (and a ‘few’ other parts).

Designed to fly in stealth mode, both on the track and in the parking lot, Dave’s creation cost him only $10K, weighs only 2,700 lbs, and has an almost ideal 45/55 weight distribution. NSX it’s not, but who needs flashy, when you’ve got fast?
