Have been busy living my life and not blogging. I feel a little bit bad about not writing anything for nearly a month, but then I think, So what? I'm busy!
I was at Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend. This was one of my first ever job perks - free Sunday tickets for me and the lady. Thanks, Ford! Heres some pictures of some things I liked;
Jaguar CX-75 finally saw what all the fuss what about seeing it in the metal. the proportions, surfacing and details are really good.
I heard an awesome story about the engine of the one-77. Apparently, at a certain stage of the assembly a part has to be attached to the engine, right at the rearward edge, Pretty much under the windscreen. This part can only be put in after the engine has been put into the car. As the engine is so far back in the chassis, and the car is so wide, there is no easy way to do this. it is unreachable from all sides. The solution, apparently is to suspend an engineer from the roof, Mission impossible style, and hang him over the car with the part and a screwdriver!
nothing quite like a Ferrari engine bay.
Bugatti EB110 and its misleading badging. Lindsey asked why such an old looking car had an 11 gig memory and what it would be used for. fantastic. the bugatti 11gb.
Why can't we have bumpers like this on cars anymore??
