…Mustangs need more Vanquish V12?

Sure, you could coat your Mustang in the body of an Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, but it’s still going to be American muscle on the inside, right?

Apparently not, as one crafty ‘stang owner has managed to find room for the Vanquish’s V12 motor between the wheel wells of an already tastily modified pony.

Check out the video for more info, including the exhaust sound that was never supposed to come out of a car costing less than $100,000:

…Adi Dassler has quite a history?


Do you know your Adidas history?

Did you know that Adidas was owned and founded by a man named Adi Dassler?

In case you didn’t, Adidas wants to give you a full rundown of the story, though with their beautiful combination of stop motion, claymation, and video inlays, it’s definitely worth the time it takes to sit through a bit of an Adidas history lesson.

And here you thought it stood for All Day I Dream About Sex.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Honda Mile Makers?

If you happen to have a high mileage Honda, then check out the Honda Mile Makers Club, a social network for owners of Hondas that have already passed the century mark.

    Honda Mile MakersSurpassing a mileage landmark is no small feat. And it’s as much about the devoted driver as it is about reliability and care. It’s a shared journey: car and driver. And that journey is a ride worth sharing. So Honda has created a space where each Honda Mile Maker can pass on their own personal adventure when the odometer hits that mileage milestone. Honda Mile Makers is simply recognition of the passion, inspiration and dedication of these Honda drivers. And the loyalty, durability and reliability of the Hondas driven. Welcome to the club.

Owners can upload a photo of their car, and then add a story of how they got so many miles on it, along with info about what the car needed along the way.

Though it’s basically just a giant advertisement for Honda, it is impressive that the little [H] mobiles just keep going and going and going…

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Lamborghini Jalpa?

Lamborghini Jalpa

With only 255 horses on tap, the Lamborghini Jalpa was not known to be the fastest of bulls. However, that doesn’t mean there wasn’t room for improvement.

The Jalpa that you see here, owned by a Lamborghini enthusiast with a big dream and a bigger wallet, was the beneficiary of a twin turbo implant from a Mitsubishi 3000GT, and has apparently shown a few Murcielago owners a thing or two on the track.

Sleeper and Lamborghini in the same sentence?

Apparently so.
