Musk’s new lawyer fights ‘pedo guy’ defamation lawsuit claims, questions motive

SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s lawyer argued Tuesday in a court filing that the British cave diver who became embroiled in a public spat with his client and later sued for defamation can’t recover damages because his reputation was not harmed. In court documents filed Tuesday, Musk’s new lawyer Alex Spiro of Quinn Emmanuel questioned the motive of Vernon Unsworth, the British cave diver, who filed a defamation lawsuit in September 2018 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District ...

Indian Motorcycle and Motorcycle Missions Do ‘Motorcycle Therapy’ Build-Off

Turf & Terrain: SUVs & Footballs Have Something In Common

The Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots will square off in Super Bowl LII on Sunday, February 4th. At first glance, it may not seem like SUVs and game day balls have much in common, but believe it or not, there is an aerodynamic science to both. In advance of the big game, GMC and Wilson Sporting Goods gave us some insight into how SUVs and footballs are both influenced by aerodynamic design. In The Tunnel When it comes to the 2018 GMC Terrain, engineers spend more than 300 hours ...

Exclusive: The Indian Scout FTR1200 Custom

The bike we’ve been waiting for Indian to build is here. Well, almost. We’re told it’s a prototype, but we know it’s also a big step towards a production-ready Indian Scout tracker. This is the world’s first glimpse of the FTR1200 Custom, to be revealed in the metal at the huge EICMA show in Italy. It’s inspired by the Scout FTR750 flat tracker, the race bike ridden by the Wrecking Crew to the first three places in the American Flat Track Series. The FTR1200 has been built with the help ...

This Just May be the Baddest 1966 Chevy Nova on the Planet

Despite what you might surmise, this is a genuine success story. Despite a long, arduous journey finishing the car, it wouldn’t be a real project unless adversity prevailed, at least for a while. Dedication is what saved the day, and relatively speaking, the results were spectacular. Jarod Wenrick’s storyline is familiar. His dad was a hot rodder who loved street rods and Jarod helped him build them. That routine was anything but routine. He learned. He saw his dream unfold before him like a map...

Raul Torres’ transformed 1999 New Edge Mustang is a South Florida Terror

You may have heard the term “China White.” For the purposes of Raul Torres’s story, let’s just say it means a kind of addiction. An addiction that Raul Torres has had for Mustangs since 1993. In fact, Torres has owned 22 of them but none more special than his 1999 Mustang, aka China WhiTTe. The two capital Ts in the name stand for Twin Turbo. Torres says, “I saw this car being assembled at Lujan Motorsports and immediately gained interest in it due to the quality of the build. Shortly after that...

1970 Monte Carlo with 1,000-Plus Horsepower

In ancient times, Detroit Raw supplied the youth market with hot cars, defined it with them, but they easily handed off the muscle car powertrain to a bunch of mature sheetmetal, including the Monte Carlo, a car that wasn’t necessarily meant to be a hot rod of any stripe. In the weed-smoky ’70s, our pal Berserko Bob had one. Not some small-block/slushbox wheezer, either. His Monte had a 454 backed by a Turbo 400. No one we knew had anything like it. But Berserko didn’t hot rod it. He just drove ...

Emerson Fittipaldi announced as 2018 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance honoree

Emerson Fittipaldi at Daytona, circa 1975. Photo by Bill Warner. He’s a two-time Formula 1 World Champion, and at the time of his first title in 1972 was the youngest driver, at age 25, then crowned. He’s also a two-time winner of the Indianapolis 500 (1989 and 1993), and in 1989 captured the CART series championship while driving for Patrick Racing. A member of the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America and the focus of a recent Road Racing Drivers Club dinner, Emerson Fittipaldi has been named ...

‘Cars 3’ Review: Better Than the Second Movie, Not Quite as Good as Part One

The Cars movies have been the redheaded stepchildren of the Pixar filmography for just over a decade. While the films are a merchandising cash cow, the 2006 original and 2011 sequel are among Pixar’s weakest creative efforts, the latter being their outright worst. A more positive spin on Cars 3 might suggest that the studio has something to prove, that they wanted this movie to exist for reasons aside from selling toys. The good news is that Cars 3 is mercifully a step up from Cars 2; the less ...

Watch a Ferrari F40 LM run flat out at Goodwood

They say meeting your heroes in person usually ends in disappointment. We'd say that can't happen if said hero is the Ferrari F40. Chris Wilson, the driver of this Ferrari F40 LM—a racing variant—proves the F40 is all it was ever cracked up to be. That is, raw, exhilarating, and a little scary, too. Wilson participated in the 75th... [Author: [email protected] (Sean Szymkowski)]

Emerson Fittipaldi honored at upcoming Long Beach RRDC dinner

If made into a Hollywood movie, the story of Emerson Fittipaldi’s rise to the top of Formula 1’s ranks would likely be deemed too far-fetched to be believable. After retiring from F1, he’d go on to win a pair of Indy 500s, as well as the 1989 CART Championship for Patrick Racing.  On Thursday, April 6, Fittipaldi will be honored by the Road Racing Drivers Club (RRDC) as it presents its annual “E...

Consumer Reports Takes a Stand Against Goofy Modern Gearshifts

Oddball gearboxes have been around forever. Cord’s 810 had a Wilson preselector back in the 1930s, Chrysler had the the mid-century pushbutton PowerFlite, and Oldsmobile was throwing Hurst Lighting Rods into its H/O cars in the 1980s. However, the overwhelming majority of automatic and manual transmissions have come with a strikingly familiar column or floor-mounted […] The post Consumer Reports Takes a Stand Against Goofy Modern Gearshifts appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Seed 9 Rally 2016 Edition

  November means a return to the Mojave desert for the last rally of the year, Seed 9 Rally Presented by Gold Strike Hotel & Gambling Hall. In what seems to be a new trend, at least in West Coast rally, is the inclusion of UTV’s – and the Seed 9 entry list had two. One driven by third place on last year’s podium, Brent Lee with co-driver Ericka Sacks, and the second was Mihai Gologan – whose co-driver was MIA, but he braved the rough desert stages alone. While there are mixed feelings about in...

The President on Wheels – Part I

In the spirit of the 4th of July, I decided to repost this look at the most famous of all government cars, the presidential limousine.  Most people have seen a presidential motorcade on television, and recognized it as a powerful symbol of the presidency.  I have been lucky enough to see many of them up close and personal, attending inaugural events dating back to Jimmy Carter.  I have always been fascinated by the changes in the president’s limousine through the years, and enjoyed watching the ...
