I filmed this on the way to work this morning; this guy overcooked it while attempting to drift and proceeded to spin out in to a 360/burnout. At the previous light, a left turn, he drifted it rather nicely around the turn. Seeing this, I grabbed my camera when we were stopped at the next light. He saw me pick up the camera and started to film and then proceeded to go a bit throttle happy. … [Read more...] about 30-year-old Toyota’s drift antics shame its offspring
AE86s are cheap enough that any kid can buy one if they can find one that hasn't been crashed into a tree by now. You're looking at the car with which thousands and thousands of drivers have learned how to go sideways, how to run a racing team, how to have fun with cars. … [Read more...] about Three Cheers For The Great AE86

Well, they did it a year ago but its the 2000s, man — you gotta wait for the statute of limitations to run out secure the book movie deals before you break something this big. As Davey G points out, Roy and Maher's accomplishment lends even more credence to your collective assertion that the E39 M5 is the greatest M5 of all. On a personal note, I'm totally proud to be laterally associated with record breaking hoon-history. Even though like the rest of the world, I was kept in the dark (Davey told me all about it last night at 2:00 am). But remember what the Romans told their conquering generals; glory fades. As outstanding as Herr Roy's achievement is, how long will the new record stand? … [Read more...] about How Long Will Roy and Maher’s Record Stand?
