I previously thought the new Charger to be pretty ugly but man it looks real good in that deep grey. Sounds pretty wonderful too. :o

They tweaked the rear end on the refresh and drat if that lightbar doesn't look cool as hell now.

Tony obviously doesn't watch Roadkill. "Oh the Viper? I borrowed it from the Roadkill guys" and no crazy reaction.

It's the shop owner's project, if I recall correctly from the first episode.

What exactly is the point of that hoodbonnet opening system? Is it really that hard to open it manually?

Because he felt like it? If this thing even gets used for a raceday and he has an oops, the entire assembly seems like it'll either come straight off, or jam up, anyways.

This gets a bit cheesy at times, but this video, detailing the restoration of a pre-war Mercedes 540 Streamliner, is pretty neat:

my favorite part was when they took it for a drive at night with the hood off, and then it broke down on the side of the road

Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved?

Wheeler Dealers is a lot of fun, as is Victory By Design, where Alain de Cadenet takes museum-level historic race cars and beats the living hell out of them on some private estate. Luckiest son-of-a-bitch on the planet.

There was a "How It's Made - Dream Cars" series that is outstanding, as well.

Of course, most anything from Jay Leno's Garage is amazing too.

Seeing as how it's May, Legends of the Brickyard is always appropriate.

what?


I just found Mud, Sweat, and Gears. It's a BBC America show starring Jonny Smith and Tom Ford (both from Fifth Gear) doing team-based challenges with cars kind of like a Top Gear challenge meets any of the "build a car in a short time" type shows.

So far I'm about 15 minutes in to the first episode and it's not terrible. They're building police cars out of a Firebird and a Jaguar.

edit: Just finished the episode, it was pretty entertaining though I'd really have liked a bit more time spent on the builds.

I love that Mercedes brings it out for him to drive. I'm also amazed that after driving that car in anger for 10 hours that he wasn't stone deaf for life.

Not video, but Dan Neil did a piece on his ride along with Sir Stirling and the Mercedes for This American Life, found here. It's pretty good. I think the whole show is pretty good.

There is also a NUMMI episode that I thought was really good.
