Here’s a very entertaining stop motion movie of an engine restoration. It makes it look so easy!
Our friends over at Attic just opened their 3rd retail store and it looks to be another hit. It’s in the heart of Alhambra on Main St. which is a pretty happening location. The grand opening event brought out a big crowd to wish the Attic family lots of success in the new location.

Saw this crazy hella flush GS on the freeway with some major poke going on. The car was pretty clean but not really my style and apparently the CHP didn’t like it either. The guy was just cruising slowly along so I felt bad for him. I would never wish someone to get pulled over no matter how their car looked, unless they were driving like a dumbass or maybe rocking replica parts.
A headline about Audi bringing its TT RS with the 2.5L I-5 to the US made me think of how desperately Honda needs to take a little risk and produce another great sports car. The S2000 is a great platform with a good engine but if it stuck to the original SSM design study and used the 2.5L I-5 it would’ve been even better. Just imagine, a 300hp 2.5L VTEC engine revving to 9000rpm. Just wishful thinking but some manufacturers these days are actually making wishes come true.

It must be nice to work for a car company’s performance division and have the budget to produce automotive April Fool’s jokes. There’s been shots all over the web of this M3 Pickup circling the Nurburgring but BMW debuted it today as sort of an April Fool’s joke. It will serve as a parts truck for the M division but it must have been fun designing and building this thing. They say it has almost the same drag coefficient as the M3 Coupe and with the same engine it hit 186 mph on the Ring. I kinda like it…
I was literally speaking mid-sentence and chatting with some of our suppliers in Japan while the earthquake struck and I’m happy to report that all our friends and family are OK over there. Unfortunately there are hundred and thousands of others who weren’t as lucky. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those in Japan.
Weds put this video together describing the testing process and how imitation wheels don’t meet these specification.
