I can see how the bicycles are supported to remain standing when they’re placed in the storage area. It looks like it’s a channel for the tyres to sit in, but I don’t imagine that would be enough to keep all bikes standing (I
They make it more difficult to visually discern the lines of the body. The swirls clearly don’t make it impossible, but they screw around with our ability to piece together the sections of the car as a whole. Also, not to be that guy,
[Boatnerd](http://www.boatnerd.com/pictures/fleet/cort.htm) has [an amazing photo](http://www.boatnerd.com/pictures/images/Stubby-rl.jpg) of her initial, temporary configuration without the cargo area. >The unusual-looking vessel was known as “Hull 1173” but acquired the nickname “Stubby” due to its appearance. Hull 1173 consisted of the Cort’s bow and stern sections, 182 feet long
Ah man you bought a year to this old eye. I bought a 70 Malibu in 85 and restored it but it was vandalized heavily one night and I had to sell it to a junk yard. Sad… I also had a 72 Monte
It looks like the low pressure turbos are in parallel. I see a few potential advantages. Small low pressure turbos would stay spooled up most of the time and cut down on the lag of the larger turbo. A smaller primary compressor is more
Never said they don’t sound ridiculous, mine was just a sarcastic comment to show that yours was a bit of a hyperbole. I get that you’re supposed to call the LaFerrari as simply “LaFerrari” without even putting a “the” in the front. So if
Never understood the point of a oscillating engine at this scale. You’ve got sliding valve surfaces that take are tough to seal, trunions and bearings that take a lot of abuse, and even more side pressure on the gland packings than on a normal
Yeah…’cause they’re not exactly getting cheaper either. Hopefully petrol-powered cars you drive yourself aren’t made illegal before we get our chance again. edit: I don’t know if it was part of this group’s business or not but there’s still a couple R34s tooling around
For anyone else who is curious, more info (including interior/engine pics) here: https://www.good-guys.com/?p=7473&option=com_wordpress&Itemid=1314 and a youtube video here: his ’36 Ford is pretty sexy too:
I have a short/medium list of cars that are examples of Automotive Perfection. This is absolutely without a doubt in the top 5 cars of eternity. This particular NSX is a great example of NSXs in general. There is/was (I haven’t seen it in
According to Wikipedia: > Together with her sister ships, MOL Comfort was the first container ship classified by Nippon Kaiji Kyokai to utilize ultra high-strength steel with an yield strength of 470 MPa in her hull structure Hmmmm……
This is Russia’s equivalent of the B-52, right? I wonder why they went with propellers while we went with jet engines. They came out within months of each other. EDIT: > The big problem for Tupolev was the engine choice: the Tu-4 showed that
Nothing really. People were expecting a huge power output but it has 156 bhp (101 for U.S) and needs the race kit to get the full 212 BHP. Which to be honest has always been Hondas way. Although I doubt many of these will
It’s actually not difficult to find parts for old Z cars. It’s a common misconception, but there’s a plenty big aftermarket for everything you’d need, rusted out S30s in junk or backyards, and some things you can roll into an Advance or dealer and
People park on the wrong side of the road all day every day. There is no such thing as rental spots in the uk. A double yellow line means no parking for ANYONE. You cannot buy a parking privelage in a no parking zone
The *Duke* was built in April 1954, and resembles most British locomotives from the 1930s onwards. The last steam locomotive built by British Rail was the BR Standard Class 9F [92220 *Evening Star*](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BR_standard_class_9F_92220_Evening_Star#/media/File:92220_EVENING_STAR_at_Bolton_Percy.jpg), built in April 1960. The last mainline steam-hauled revenue-earning service in
Lieutenant Steve Chesser was responsible for setting up the tours on the Iowa Class ships when they visited Australia in the mid to late 80s. Captain Thigpen got me abourd the nuclear sub when it ws moored in San Diego. Each member of my
Let’s set the record straight a little bit. That’s ALLLLLLLL bullshit to the highest degree. I don’t like that shit at all. It looks tacky and like they’re trying too hard to do what the actual JDM scene (in my opinion) does so well.
Personally, I think the gaudy ground effects and “in-your-face” riveted flares work pretty well on Lambos. I would venture to say that 99.9% of Lamborghini owners are buying their cars so that they can be seen driving a flashy, wild-looking exotic. Therefore, at least
Possibly pretty bad. If I had to guess, this probably came around the era when they also had gas-turbine trains. Basically they made ridiculous amounts of power. And they were cost-effective to operate. However, this was because they’re fuel was a byproduct of fuel
It was their GP bike of that era detuned and made road legal. They are very rare, yet oddly they do turn up a lot at bike meets etc. Service costs and parts are silly money.
It feels a lot like a concept car with all this crazy shit like the butterfly doors, the optional laser lights and w spoke tires, the recycled materials used in the interieur and this thing generally looking like a spaceship (all of which are
It’s certainly an exquisite looking car, but something about it just didn’t sit right with me at first glance – I didn’t know if it was just the proportions or the new front-end or what but it just didn’t look as appealing as, say,
I think the box at the back of each piston assembly is the cylinder, and they do vary significantly in size. As for the pipes, bear in mind this looks like a factory so the engine might not be complete yet.
