Redusernab Wagon Wednesday – When the Going Gets Weird, The Weird Turn Pro Stock

Redusernab February 9, 2011 Terrible Ideas

Hunter S. Thompson probably drove one of these.

Just when AMCs of yore are transcending their ironic-kitsch status into becoming genuinely collectible cars, here comes a Pacer that threatens to blow everybody’s cheeseball notions right back into the Stone Age.

How Is This Even Possible?

Reviews called the Fusion "balanced," but this is ridiculous.

A pileup during Snowpocalypse 2011 (aka Snowtorious B.I.G.) along New Hampshire’s I93 resulted in one of the most implausible accidents we’ve ever seen. Somehow, despite physical probability dictating otherwise, a Ford Fusion ended up perfectly balanced on its nose, sticking straight out of the snow.

Hoonicast #4: Epic Podcast of Epicness Edition

Redusernab February 1, 2011 In General

Gilgamesh would be proud.

The word “epic” is frequently overused to describe things that aren’t necessarily, , “a long narrative poem in elevated style recounting the deeds of a legendary or historical hero.” I mean, hell, thanks to the Internet it’s been used to define everything from to . What’s the fun in that? Is Gilgamesh scarfing down the size of herself before defeating the Bagger 288 in ? Hell no. And I’m pretty sure the preceding sentence has never been uttered (or typed) in the whole of human history.

But this Hoonicast, however, finds itself more in line with Wagner’s  than any mere hour of nonsensical gasoline-scented rambling. We embark on a heroic, meandering, booze-filled quest that spans the subjects of British motorcycles, tipping Reliants, Nickelback, salacious gossip about , smuggling ammunition from the Great White North, the importance of putting water pumps in dishwashers, old Car and Driver issues, pool tables fashioned from or inside Datsuns, Amber’s amazing Secret NinjaClaus gift that we’ve finally gotten around to and also puts the rest of ours to shame, and our wonderful lack of pants. Also, I order a pizza made by a vending machine.

Daily Drivers

Redusernab January 28, 2011 Submission Thursday

The Fiesta did not make a good first impression.

What awful seats, I thought as I struggled to find the recline lever.
What an awful noise, as the engine wheezed to life.
What an awful car.

I had been curious about the Fiesta ever since I’d ridden in a European model with an acquaintance who works in Ford’s Vehicle Dynamics department. It had a nice interior, good looks, and a chassis that, from the passenger seat, seemed oriented toward handling rather than comfort. It was the first time since the first-generation New Mini JCW that a front-wheel-drive car had interested me. It had the makings of a truly ideal daily driver- comfort, style, space, economy, and, most importantly, driving excitement.

I had resolved to drive one as soon as it arrived in the States, but the combination of a cross-country move and a plethora of available supercars in my new location conspired to keep my attentions elsewhere. Finally, on a lazy Sunday afternoon, I went forth in search of an appropriate test vehicle.

The Sound and the Fury: Redusernab Reviews the Soundracer (with video!)

Redusernab January 26, 2011 Gadget Reviews

Are you ready to UNLEASH THE FURY?

Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Ol’ Billy Shakespeare (college hip-hop name: “DJ Shaky P”) wrote this when he was going through his rebellious teenage phase in . But the quote is surprisingly accurate: this world, , is far too short to drive a 1998 Honda Accord LX with enough miles to recreate the first two days of the Apollo 11 mission, especially when you really lust after a Zonda. What happens if you might not have the $350,000 to afford the fine Italian/Argentine stallion? You can either take an senior analyst position with a leading financial firm and run the company into the ground over the course of a decade for a lucrative severance package, or—for an option that won’t result in a Senate hearing—you can recreate it for 0.1% of that price with the .

Bikes You Should Know: The Kawasaki W650

Redusernab January 18, 2011 In General

Speaking of British bikes, may we present an alternative?

What’s more British than a Bonneville? Besides warm beer and putting leftovers in pies?

Kawasaki dared to suggest their W650, first built in 1999, as a way to capture the café-cool nostalgia of the old Bonneville, two years ahead of the new one’s rebirth. Those who lived through that era might think: what’s more Japanese than a knockoff?

2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392: Wandering Wildly Through Wine Country

Perhaps the biggest fan of the new 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 came from an unlikely demographic: a shaggy, bearded man with dulled blue eyes under a dirty wool cap, scars and scabs all up and down his gaunt cheeks, pushing a woman wrapped in faded blankets and sitting cross-legged on a wheelchair, holding a cigarette from a hand that was missing a ring finger. Upon seeing the Challenger in front of the hotel, his face broke out into a grin. “Is that the new one?” He pointed with a scraggly hand. “That’s the one with the six-point-one HEMI? Damn! I want the one in the front, you wanna give me that?”

1936 Auto Union Type-C Schematics, Be Still My Beating Heart.

Redusernab January 4, 2011 In General

For reasons requiring no explanation, the 1936 Auto Union Type-C is one of the most lustworthy race cars in automotive history. Unapologetically sleek and sinister and revolutionary, the scariest of the Silver Arrows is one of the best things ever to come from Nazi Germany and someone’s dug up absolutely stunning schematic illustrations. Desktop background? Yes, desktop background. … Continue Reading
