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.
It’s the best week of winter with the North American International Autoshow kicking off. I think I’ll just call it the Detroit Autoshow from now on. It’s been a little bit since I’ve done any writing and I think it’s time to get back on the loud peddle and make some noise. We’ll try and …View full post
I’ve decided to take a bit of a different direction with the rest of this month’s White Hall Drag-O-Way coverage by focusing more on singular vehicles. The details are what makes a car, so why not show more of them? And that brings us to today. This beautiful Chevelle started life as a standard SS …View full post
The amount of Mopar at Wentzville cruise night this year was pretty impressive. On my side of the Mississippi River you just don’t see that much. It’s heaven for Camaro and Mustang fans, but when you cross that river over into Missouri it seems the Mopar comes out in droves. As they say Mopar or …View full post
Infinite-Garage editor Chris took over some photo duties this week to bring us some coverage from the World of Wheels show in Omaha. I’ll think you’ll see from these pictures he did an awesome job. Being a behind the scenes guy he doesn’t get enough credit usually and never gets to take out the company …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.
