So apparently, FedEx Ground (purple and green logo) is franchised, while FedEx Express (purple & orange) is corporate run. This can lead to FedEx more or less competing with itself. This is already silly but it gets even weirder where I live.
Went to a car show a short while ago. Here’s some pics.
This one. The original Jaguar F-Type, the car built as a successor to the legendary E-Type. Or rather, the car that was supposed to be a successor. The car that spent a decade in development before ultimately getting cancelled. Gather round, kids, and let me tell you its story.
It was designed to fly and handle like a jet, and is used as a jet trainer. It’s propelled by a mid-mounted ducted fan, and the first prototype used two NSU rotary engines. The production version has an Allison turboprop.
You could at least put an illustration of YOUR OWN CAR on the roadside toolkit. Instead you give us this frumpy, poorly drawn blob.
Long story short, the races and concours were absolutely fantastic. I’ve got about 200 images to share, so I’ll be posting in installments over the next few days so as not to melt your routers and/or the Kinja Servers. Here’s the first 50 pics. Enjoy!
Image gallery to come after the Concours show, so for now here’s a video.
Look at that. It’s brash. It’s aggressive. It’s an affront to what makes Volvo, well, Volvo. Lately Volvo has been making some of the best cars they have ever made, but there’s something missing. Or rather, something present that wasn’t there before. Panache. That’s not the Volvo that we all grew up with.
There’s a slotted disk attached to the wheel. When it is turned too far, a spring loaded pin pops into a slot and locks the wheel. The whole pin mechanism then retracts when the key is turned. This video brought to you by the fact that the center of our Jeep’s steering wheel just pops right off.
It was of the “deflate your tires” variety. Saw something awesome, you’ll have to give me a pageview if you want to know what it was.
I figured out how to embed a SoundCloud file.
I love it when stuff syncs up like that!
let's see if kinja lets us use a table.
Don't you hate it when the plow drivers don't clear the road fully and you end up with, like, half of a turning lane?
Question: Why do cars not have a vent-defrost option?
For $995, you can get your very own Lesbian!
