Every month that there are five Fridays the fellas at the White Hall Drag O Way have a cruise in. It’s always filled with good cars and good people. This month was a little different with the event moving about 10 miles south to the small town of Carrollton Illinois. I had a few technical difficulties with my camera so pictures are a bit light this go round but never feed the issues are fixed and the big White Hall Drag O Way Reunion is right around the corner.
A good 16 hours later then I hoped we return to the Loafers Car Club Car show in Hannibal, Missouri. I almost forgot what a sheer amout of photos I had taken until I got back to editing over the weekend. There were so many good cars and trucks to photograph I think I went …View full post
This time a year is car show heaven in my neck of the woods because the weather is cool, the leaves are turning color, and everyone wants to get out and enjoy the local festivals and other happenings. This weekend saw no less then three car shows in the immediate area and several more with …View full post
Jackpot! While doing some hard drive cleaning I found some photos I hadn’t posted yet. I think last fall when I had some computer trouble these got backed up and forgotten about. New content is good content. I’ve got a little Ford, Mopar, and Chevy so something for everyone today. This is just a taste …View full post
It is pretty rare we look at imports here on Infinite Garage. Nothing wrong with them or anything like that it is just we prefer big honking V8s and the occasional slant six. However there were a few imports of note at the Barry Apple Festival so I thought I would dedicate an entire article …View full post
A few years ago Dodge had that George Washington commercial where he was running off the red coats in a Challenger. That was cool. Then Ram had the “God created a farmer” commercial which if you come from a farm background got you right in the feels. Now Dodge has done it again showcasing the Hellcats and the Viper. It’s simple, empty streets, lots of hot nasty bad ass speed, and a some Mopars. These guys are genius. If this doesn’t make you want to run out and buy a Dodge maybe a Honda Civic is more your thing?
Hey look I’m not dead! As you have noticed I haven’t had much time to update the old Infinite Garage page here much. Real life gets in the way of fun sometimes. I still hope to get out to a bunch of shows this summer and do my usual thing there will just be less of it unfortunately as there just isn’t enough time.
The topic at hand today is Forza Motorsports 6. Now I know a lot of you guys aren’t gamers but a lot of you guys are and if you are like myself and the other cast here at IG you play games for racing simulators. That’s where Forza 6 comes in. In fact IG started with Forza Motorsports and that’s how this entire crew got together. That’s the power of the world we live in today. Guys all across the world can come together with something they love and become good friends. Heck they can even start a website about cars!
So Forza 6. What we know so far is it looks good, it sounds ok, it will have 450 cars at launch and 26 track locations. Follow the jump for the track locations and cars that we know about so far.
It’s here, and if you haven’t seen the photos yet you are in luck. I’ve got a few. I’ll hold judgement until I see them in person. Part of me loves it, part of me hates, it but a bigger part of me loves the 455hp V8. You’ll get three options of engine a 275hp turbo four banger, a 335hp V6, and the big dog LT1 455hp V8. You’ll want that last one. The interior is pretty darn sweet so that’s a nice step forward. I’m sure it will be a hoot to drive. Who knows maybe we’ll get to test one someday.
Recently Tesla decided they could get 900hp out of their model S. That’s impressive and it means 0-60 times will likely beat everyone with an engine. That too is impressive. Still speed isn’t everything and anyone whose ever been to the track knows that there will always be someone faster.
That’s a Lamborghini wheel btw, I don’t have a Tesla picture
Anyway, my gripe isn’t that the Tesla isn’t a great car. Oh sure acceleration drips off after 65mph, or if you use the AC, or if you have to drive very far but it’s still impressive. It’s just not special.
Let’s take last weekends cruise with the WHDOW guys. It had a nice mix of cars. Some fast, some not, but they all had something great. The engine. The sound to me is at least half of what’s important in a car. From ignition when the engine comes a live to full chat acceleration all of those cars last week had more character than any electric car ever will. I may very well drive an electric car as my daily driver someday, but for fun give me an engine.
