SilverPig in a SilverPorker

Just got married on the 1st of july, and as present my wife had arranged for me to enjoy a spanking new 997 Carrera 4S for a weekend! She's a good girl...

And what a weekend this has been!!! 1300 km of pure fun! I can't remember having driven anything else like it...including Ferrari 550 Maranello, Lambo Gallardo and Porker 996. Even the classic 911 Turbo from back then in the mid 80's seems a much tamer car than this. And at the same time...while whipping it through sharp bends and turns and making 0-100 out of red lights in under 5 seconds, even with 6 speed manual transmission, the missus would have NO problems whatsoever driving the kids to kindergarden every morning, if we would have hade kids that is. Now what other car can do that?! My lottery ticket has been handed in...

Heavy luggage

This car must have som heavy shit piled up on the roof rack...or maybe it's just slammed beyond belief.

Horsepower

We can all agree that an original beetle is NOT one of the most powerful cars, but I doubt this "conversion" will make an increase in horsepower...

You've got a fast car...

I've got a ticket to anywhere...maybe things will get better if we can escape this police van...ooops...there we go!

Ice ice baby

We live in Norway, ok, so DEAL WITH IT! Ironically this is an ice cream van...

Boys of winter

The summer is soon over for this year, and the white shit will in a few months come falling down from the sky. But no need to worry, as there is PLENTY of fun stuff to do even then...

Renault Rally

What is it with those Renaults? They seem to be unable to turn a single corner without imposing a deadly threat to everyone within 50 meters. But those Turbo 5's are just soooooooooo cool...eh?

Lookers galore!

Since I haven't been posting anything new in a while, I hope to bring it all to justice by posting this pic of these nice lookers.

Kickstart

Since it's monday...a rather gloomy one as mondays often are...I thought I'd kick it off with this über-cool wheelie. Have a fabulous week y'all!

Swedish dynamite

Out of courtesy its common to let the Am Cars get a head start just to let them have a feeling of being first...at least for a little while.

If I only was a rich japanese dude...

...I would also own a couple of the coolest cars ever to have run down the quarter mile strip.

Sweet little sixteen

What do you do with four flat fours on your hand and too much spare time?

Scary shit!

Is this cool or what?! But I wouldn't want to drive off the road in one of these, or smash into the car in front of me...or bend the car like a banana around the nearest tree. Beetles never were the safest cars around, were they?

Is it a building?

Or a plane? Or what the heck is this huge carbonfibre thing? Since it's mounted on the rear of a Mitsubishi Evo VIII, it has to be a coffee table of some kind, for quick snacks by the road. This "table" can easily seat 12 people...it's absolutely HUGE!

I've been out playing again...

OK, it's japanese...it's even a Mitsubishi...and it's full of plastic trim (except the rear wing, which actually is made of carbon)! But it was loads of fun to drive, and very VERY fast! Yeeeah!!

What's the recipe then?

Do you think cal-look is the coolest thing since the invention of ice cubes, but don't know quite HOW to build your own? Well...this simple and informative illustration might give you some clues.

How low can you go?

If it ain't low - it ain't no lowrider. You simply can't get any lower than this without getting stuck on a fly's pubic hair.

Got air?

To adjust the rear shock absorbers, you simply fill them with air, or let air out, through a valve under the rear bumper. As you fill 'em up, the car gets a familiar ass up stance! The two absorbers are connected with a hose, and the air is distributed evenly between them. Strange concept...

A tight fit

Now how the hell do you change spark plugs in here? The bulky thing on the left is the air condition unit.

Cruising

Since there has been very little progress with my 67 these days, I spent the last sunny day we had out cruising with my friend Marius in his recently US-imported Super Beetle Convertible. The car has only been driven 19.000 miles since it was new in 1979, and the driving experience is absolutely fantastic! Now where did I put my sunglasses...?
