That's just silly. And a waste of a good RX-8, IMHO. That thing was a sports car - quick off the line, fast around the corners, power down! Oops, it's on its roof!

Looks positively Amish to me.

Nah, that'd be these.

Moving along...this pic's filename indicates a Camaro, but, I'm reasonably sure that's a Mustang. Either way, it's fucked up.

I especially like the miniature no-U-turn and no-left-turn signs mounted above the rear tail light.

Nice shiny summertime car - in the garage.

Great! My pimped out ride has attracted a female. Now, I'll just slide into the back seat with her and ... oh, damn.

I yielded the right of way to this guy from Ben-Hur trucking this morning. Gladly and smartly.

ZenGum 03-15-2012 07:02 PM

That's amusing but would definitely be illegal here.

BigV 03-15-2012 07:13 PM

You should have seen them turning. Ben Hur? Maybe Mad Max. It was pretty intimidating.

xoxoxoBruce 03-15-2012 07:19 PM

Yes they are. I've seen them on innies like that front wheel, but never on outies like that drive wheel. Pretty sure that's illegal. :ymca:

BigV 03-15-2012 07:26 PM

Technically, not on a drive wheel, that was the tag axle. It was deployed since the dumptruck was full. Over some stretches that thing was really bouncing!

A tag axle, or a pusher axle?

xoxoxoBruce 03-15-2012 07:32 PM

Oh, a dump truck? I thought it was a tractor.

I don't think I know what a pusher axle is, can you elaborate?

A pusher axle is like a tag axle.

But I think what you're talking about is a lift axle.

BigV 03-16-2012 08:06 AM

I bet you're right.

BrianR 03-16-2012 12:36 PM

A pusher axle is the rear drive axle. A Tag axle is the (normally) unpowered axle. A drop axle is one that is only deployed when the weight conditions warrant an extra axle. Tractors that routinely haul nose-heavy loads use them but they are not standard equipment on tractors.

Those spiky things are legal all over the US, as they are only covers for the lug nuts, They are made of plastic or very thin aluminum. I have accidentally dented them with my thumb. I cannot speak for other countries tho. :)

I like how the steering wheel matches the wagon's wheels.

I can see it as a tow bar, but would that thing really work in a roll-over ?

Gravdigr 03-17-2012 03:56 PM

Assuming you mean the 'handle', I doubt it.

I wonder how many miles to the galleon that thing gets...

burns334 05-18-2012 06:45 AM

This whole thread is so amusing, just so many "off the wall" ideas, most of them just make me say "why"?

We used have a bunch Shriner activities around here, but, I don't think I've seen a fez since I was teenager.

ZenGum 05-18-2012 06:48 PM

You're a shriner? I'm sorry, I can't think of your name, but your fez is familiar...

Since I've devolved this thread to anything auto-related, it's as good a place as any for this:

from Kentucky.com

Behold; the new KY State Police cruiser.

Attachment 39055

Quote:

...state police public affairs division said Wednesday that each cruiser cost $25,400...The Caprice is a full-size, rear-wheel drive sedan developed exclusively for the U.S. law enforcement market. It has a 355-horsepower V-8 engine that provides high performance to meet police needs...Webb said that a research committee tested the cruisers and that they were cheaper than the new Ford alternative.
I wonder if this will be better than the last time our Troopers tried a Chevy. Remember the whale-bodied Impalas that cops all over America couldn't get rid of fast enough? They topped out (the cop version, mind you) at around 100-110 mph. I remember listening to the police scanner one night, and hearing the absolute hatred one trooper had for his Impala, as he was completely left in the dust by a four cylinder Ford Ranger (he outran the trooper, but, he couldn't outrun the radio).

Only a few months later, I listened as a Crown Vic-driving trooper read off the license number of a Mustang GT at 140-something mph.

We'll see how this one does.

xoxoxoBruce 06-13-2012 08:29 PM

The crown vic is dead. This past spring, the testing of cruiser offerings at U-MI, where cops come from all over the country to see the cars and testing, the Chevy came out on top. The only drawback was the Chevy doesn't offer a column shift. The cops are hoping Chevy will cobble together some Aussie parts if demand is sufficient.

BigV 06-13-2012 09:24 PM

RIMS, PEOPLE, RIMS!!!



my god, this would be soooo cooool.

ZenGum 06-14-2012 08:16 AM

Grav, fret not! The caprice is made in my home town, and is a specialised version of the Holden Commodore. Unless it has been totally pussified for the US market, it has PLENTY of grunt and should be able to keep up with everything except overpriced supercars.

Here's the caprice:


Here's a close relative, the Holden Commodore HSV. Not sure if the Caprice gets the supercharger.


I'll stop here, else, I'll keep posting links of hoons in commodores for hours.

Gravdigr 06-14-2012 02:39 PM

They better do something to keep that inside rear tire on the road in the corners, looks like a lot of lift there.

But, I guess once it's weighed down with all the sh--stuff that goes in the trunk it'll probably tame down some.

Thanks for that post Zen!

An unloaded tyre doesn't really do anything grip-wise anyway, it may as well be up in the air. What you really need is something like this...

xoxoxoBruce 06-14-2012 11:38 PM

The reality is they can't outrun the radio, and collateral damage to the public is expensive, so high speed pursuits are falling out of favor. Now they are more concerned with gas mileage, and the ability to idle for hours on end without overheating.

ZenGum 06-15-2012 07:21 AM

That's bean-counter thinking.

If you want good quality police, you have to keep the good people. One way to do that is give them a car that makes them feel awesome. What do you think all those flashing lights are really for? :D

Took these yesterday. Door left open & not a person around - weird.
I figured there was some wacky security system installed so I took the pics from a distance.

Gravdigr 06-17-2012 01:43 PM

It's perfectly safe to leave that car like that...

Who the fuck would want it?

Gravdigr 06-17-2012 01:45 PM

Wait...is that a video display in the passenger door?

Top cheetos looks puffy, but the bottom cheetos is definitely crunchy.

What could possibly cause a car like that to crash???
