The Batmobile… er… Ankonian

This is a pretty sweet Lambo, if you like that sort of thing.  This is also, coincidentally, part of my halloweeen costume.

Throwback Whips: Reliant Robin

Top Gear is endlessly entertaining.

Name aside though, the term Robin Reliant goes one step further because not only do some people think Reliant Robins are Robin Reliants but they think all 3-wheeled Reliants are. Regardless if the vehicle is a Reliant Regal, a Reliant Rialto, Reliant Regent or a Reliant Ant. All the models are very distinctive in their shape yet all get called "Robin Reliant". It’s a bit like calling all Ford cars regardless of model, "Fiesta Ford" after all they all have four wheels so they must be the same? Strangely, it is a relatively modern term as Reliant were founded in 1935 and the Reliant Robin was not introduced until 1973. Up until this point Reliants were Reliants and not called "Regal Reliant" or "Regent Reliant". Some Reliants even get double barrelled names so a Reliant Rialto becomes a "Robin Reliant Rialto" such is the notion that Reliant is always preceded by Robin. #Source

Motorbiking

Besides the gratuitous "butt-view" camera angles, this video, made for the American Federation of Motorcyclists 2010 banquet, is pretty awesome. If you’re into that sort of thing, that is.

Take On Me

The last time I posted I tried to say that we really never post commercials.  This freakin’ commercial, however, is killing me.  And for those of us who never watch TV, this sort of thing is exciting.

Talking Cars

Image source

You must have seen talking cars only in cartoon films or must have read about them in fictions. This technology can help in reducing the number of road collisions in a big way. Very soon such cars will become a reality, without the condition for human-like facial features, if scientists from the University of Bologna in Italy are to be believed. These scientists have formulated a software that allows cars to "communicate" with one another on the road. Similar technology may have been applied previously, but scientists claim that this time the car would be able to know what had happened kilometres ahead.

Car Accidents and Alcohol

In the United States, the blood-alcohol limit may be 0.08 percent, but no amount of alcohol seems to be safe for driving, according to a University of California, San Diego sociologist. A study led by David Phillips and published in the journal Addiction finds that blood-alcohol levels well below the U.S. legal limit are associated with incapacitating injury and death. (Source)
