Lacuna Coil.

May 8, 2009

Lacuna Coil

Keeping with the theme of super-hot female musicians, today’s music is from Lacuna Coil.  Lacuna Coil is an Italian gothic metal/rock band.  Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferra handle the vocals.  Cristiano Migliore and Marco Biazzi are on guitar.  Marco Zelati on on bass/keyboards.  Finally, Cristiano Mozzati is on the drums.  I first heard this band on the Resident Evil: Apocalypse soundtrack.  Here are more YouTube music videos and Amazon links to albums than you probably want.  Then again, you should like seeing Cristina.

Popular Mechanics has an article up with some video of the truck in action and an interview with an SVT engineer.  I can’t wait to see one of these driving around and see some more off-road video.

Great Idea To Decrease Street Racing.

May 3, 2009

Police

South Florida police actually take their cars down to the drag strip once a month and line up to race anyone over the age of 18.  This is actually a great idea.  While most drag strips usually have a test & tune day once every week or two, not many people take advantage of it.  Being able to smoke a cop would probably bring in more people.  My only gripe is that you have to pay $25 to race.  Yeah, it’s not much, but if the police department would cover the track fees once a month and let people run for free against them, you’d get even more folks in there and off the streets.  It’s a great and creative idea, nonetheless. And who knows, maybe BS’ing a little with the police about cars would decrease the resentment a lot of people have toward them (including myself).

Supercharged Emblem.

May 1, 2009

I had someone ask me where I got the ‘SUPERCHARGED‘ emblem on my car that is mounted right under the ‘SVT’ emblem on the trunk.  I actually didn’t get it from anywhere, the previous owner had put it there and I left it.  According to him, he got it from a supercharged Buick and 3M taped it on there.  I’ve since removed it because it seemed like overkill on the rear of the car between the chromed COBRA letters, the license plate frame, SVT logo and Ford logo.  If you really want one, you can pick one up cheap while this eBay auction is active.

Test Drive A Ford, Donate To Charity.

Charity

Ford is making the most of having a little bit of extra fat during these lean times by sharing its fortune with the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. If you test drive a Ford, Lincoln, or Mercury before June 1, Ford will give $20 to the foundation, up to $1,000,000. Dealers can match the contributions up to $1,000 per store, and you can choose which local Komen affiliate you would like to receive your donation.

There are two ways to take advantage of the charity offer: before you go for your test drive, log on to www.fordcares.com and print out the registration form. After your test drive, the dealer will give you a code to enter on the Ford Cares site, and that will activate the donation. Or, if you’re in a Komen Foundation Race for the Cure, your race packet will have a registration form you can take to the dealer before your test drive

Click the link to see the full press release.  From my experience, don’t expect to be able to test drive a GT500 unless you have $50,000 in your pocket!  You might have to settle for a GT.
