From the PA driving booklet, Chapter 2, page 8:

NON-FUNCTIONING TRAFFIC LIGHTS
A non-functioning traffic signal should be treated as though it were a four-way STOP sign.

How am I the ONLY person to do this at an intersection with 40 people going through it?  A few years lapse and you all forget how to drive?  BTW, turn signals are also mandatory, headlights should always be on when its raining, and the left lane is for passing only.  Get off your cell phone, put down the Big Mac, and use your head!

Art is a funny thing. Most artists don’t become famous until after their death.  Visiting the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam, I can appreciate his skills. But WTF is this?  The Kolumba Museum in Cologne, Germany mixes Gothic ruin architecture (ok, that’s cool) with art.

I tried to get cultured and ended up confused.  Perhaps someone wants to explain how displaying meat on boxes next to tortue devices (?) and hanging trash under a table and attaching it to the ceiling is art… I think transcendence can be portrayed in a less crude way, or I’m just completely ignorant to the symbolism these “artists” are getting from their work.

I saw this S2000 at the track and AZ and had to get a closer look.  Check it out!

Gearhead-less

Posted In Cars

Top 10 Signs you are not a Gearhead:

1) You think your temp gauge forecasts the weather outside

2) Your car’s color could be referred to as Poop Brown or Dull Beige

3) You pepper your license plate with registration stickers from all years like a Jackson Pollock painting

4) You volunteer to be designated driver for your alcoholic friends without covering the seats and floor with plastic

5) You’ll let anyone drive it from your 90 year old grandma to your friend with a suspended license

6) You don’t dread parallel parking in the city (bumper cars anyone?)

7) You think your car has a flux capacitor

8) You think rain qualifies as a car wash and during a drought you drive close to sprinklers or knock over a fire hydrant for a good wash

9) You apply stick on wood trim to the interior and hubcap wheel covers

10) You quote things in bhp (brake horsepower) not knowing how it’s different than wheel horsepower

Figuratively, of course!

Firebird Raceway.  Phoenix, AZ.  Time attack racing, auto-x, drags, and carnage.  20′ from a car somersaulting off the tire wall.  Let’s just say covering these events might not be the safest thing.  But it WAS freaking cool to watch. And the guy only hurt his pride.  Check it out!
