Tried to track down that picture. It's been on the net since before 2013, mostly Russian sites, but it's only on sites that post pictures without explanation or background. :(

Moving forward, Caterpillar tires...

I figure they're delivery vehicles of some sort.

Maybe they pick up ya at the curb at the airport and take ya to your car in the parking lot.

xoxoxoBruce 12-27-2018 12:56 AM

That's an interesting idea I hadn't thought of that. I was thinking advertizing or hell drivers(thrill show).

Damn it took forever for that post to make the trip.

I've been noticing that it's been taking longer, a lot longer, for my posts to go up onto the Cellar. I've noticed no difference on other sites.

Remember the Dodge/PPG M4S Pace Car?

Attachment 65984

Here's a fairly good, and fairly long, write-up on how it came to be. Pretty good, if ya like the story of how a one-off car came to be.

Tidbit: The back glass on this one-off, totally fabricated, hand made car? Off a Datsun 240Z. I said Datsun.



ETA: My Firefox did not get along amicably w/that site at the link.

Here's a one-off that was total bullshit, just a promotion piece that you can't drive and too big to put on your fireplace mantel.
All Barris did was the paint but takes the credit for the "creation".

Selling at auction is this 1965 (?) Shelby Cobra 289 4-spd. The last 289 4-spd Cobra made, and the last 289 Cobra sold to the public, Mr. Shelby kept the very last one.

Mecum's pre-auction estimate is that it will bring between $1.2 and $1.4 million.:eek:

It's purty and all, but, daaaaaaaaayyyyyuummmm.

Attachment 66040

The 2019 McLaren Speedtail makes 1,036 hp.

Price: $2.62 million

A total of 106 will be made.

All of them are already sold.

About a third of those will come to America.

No side airbags (driver sits in the middle), and no side mirrors (cameras are used instead) means this car cannot be titled, registered, licensed, or driven in America.

Zero - 186 mph in 12.8 seconds.

Top speed limited to 250 mph because of the tires.

Stuck, a cry for help...

Gravdigr 01-27-2019 02:23 PM

I can tell ya exactamundo how to get that lug nut off.

First, cuss. If you can't cuss worth a damn, get help.

Then find yerself a drill, and some little bits. Then drill a series of holes around the perimeter of the nut.

Sooner or later, if ya make enough holes, ya can just tap a screwdriver in there and break the nut apart piece by piece. Viola.

Or ya can drill the stud out from inside the nut. That takes more drill bits. Studs are tough.

Ask me how I know these things. Go ahead, aks me.

Had to do this very thing to GrandCherokeeOne, because Wal-Mart put the lugs on with Paul Bunyan's personal impact wrench.

We've went through this twice. Broke a four way lug wrench.

So...

I got this used set of wheels and tires.

Attachment 66243

They got 85% treadlife left on 'em. I'm asking $100,000. Interested?

Some info:

They're off a Bugatti Veyron.

They're made specifically for the Veyron, to handle it's top speed.

At top speed, the tires are good for 15 minutes.

Bug charges $150,000 for replacement wheels/tires.

They recommend replacing the tires every 2,500 miles.

The wheels only need to be replaced every other tire change.

xoxoxoBruce 01-31-2019 12:18 AM

Great, now gas is cheaper I could take a trip to CA and only have to replace the tires twice and wheels once before I get home. :rolleyes:

But the trip would only take 20 minutes.

Back then they had been surpassed by newer models and available cheap, now there is less than 62 left of all the years they were built.

Gravdigr 02-07-2019 12:54 PM

The Ferrari Enzo ($670,000, new) has non-power, roll-up windows, and no provision for a radio.

$670,000.

Just 36 250 GTOs were manufactured between 1962 and 1964.

Not picking nits, just happen to be reading about them a few minutes ago.

But then again, 36 is less than 62.:)

Wiki
Quote:

Ferrari eluded FIA regulations by numbering its chassis out of sequence, using jumps between each to suggest cars that did not exist.[20] When FIA inspectors appeared to confirm that 100 examples had been built, Enzo Ferrari shuffled the same cars between different locations, thus giving the impression that the full complement of 100 cars was present.[21]
I have no idea, the closest I come to Ferraris was going to the mailbox one morning and taking out the latest Car & Driver magazine with the new Ferrari California on the cover. While I'm standing there looking at it two brand new California's rumbled by and stopped at the stop sign by my driveway.

About 2 or so miles from me is where they are unloaded off the enclosed transporters, prepared for delivery, then driven to the dealer.
