Monkeemobile vs. Shelby Daytona Coupe

Now here's something you don't see every day.  A very rare Shelby Daytona Couple racing the equally rare Monkeemobile (a modified Pontiac GTO).  Enjoy!

Getting Buzzed

This would fall under the category of being caught *above* the curb, but pretty cool anyway.  This past June, I happened to see something go past my front window that seemed a little unusual....and airplane!  

I grabbed my video camera and went outside to video my own personal airshow.  It seems that something appears to have broken on a combine that was working the field across the road from my house.  It had been sitting for a couple of days when it seems that the parts needed to repair it arrived by air-mail.  

The Piper J-3 Cub first made a low pass (the one I originally saw), then landed, delivered the part, and took off again.  Then, the pilot thought he would have a little fun so he buzzed the combine (and my house in the process) a few times before taking off for home.  

This is how we do things out here in the country!

Olympic Ski Jump -- For Tires

Have you ever wondered what kind of tire performs the best?  You can go to Tire Rack or Consumer Reports to find that information. 

But what if you want your tires to win a gold medal at the next winter Olympics in the ski jump competition?  What kind of tire would you choose?  As luck would have it, we have your information right here.
