todays episode of The Grand Tour

December 16th, 2017 by admin

Jeremy races Capt Slow and Hamster from NYC to Niagara Falls… they have to take public transport, he takes the new Ford GT….

but then, he calls the airplane reservation people, and screws with them. Switches them from Business Class to Economy, and tells the airline to not let them drink alcohol on the flight.. that’s funny, in a mean kind of way

Also, Jeremy points out that the engine in a new AMG GT R has 577 hp, but the same engine in an E Class Mercedes Benz produces over 600 hp

the GT R sports a 4 liter twin-turbo V-8 with a revised intake, new forged aluminum pistons, and a higher compression ratio. The ­output is 577 Hp and 516 foot pounds

and Jeremy is indeed absollutely correct, I looked on the Mercedes Benz website, and the same engine is in the 2018 E 63 S Sedan Engine: Handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 biturboPower 603 hp @ 5,750-6,500 rpm

Steve McQueen’s pickup truck loaded-up with his Bud Ekins’ desert-modified Triumph Bonneville desert racer. I bet the tailgate is lettered by Von Dutch, he worked for Ekins at one time, and did a lot of work for Steve McQueen

Maybe "drive around" is what the sign should say instead of "drive through"

If you have to ask "what the hell is that" then I’m happy to say, it’s a Argentinian Torino, and ain’t it cool that we still have cars to appreciate that we’ve never seen or heard of before? Not just another Chevy!

The Torino is an Argentinian car that was born in 1966, as a licensed redesign of the AMC Rambler by Pininfarina, produced originally by IKA ( Argentinian Kaiser industries), a partner with the Renault company that would eventually buy them out.

Mario Suárez and his son Francisco are responsible for restoring the original #1 and #2 Torinos from the three built to challenge the Europeans on their home turf in one of the most grueling races in the world. 84 hours of the 1969 Nurburgring endurance racing Marathon de la Route.

the #3 Torino resides in the Fangio museum

Fangio oversaw the IKA-Renault Torino effort at the Nürburgring and his son was among the team of of Argentinian drivers assigned to the three cars.

Fangio traveled with the team to the ‘Ring to guide the cars around both the Nord and Südschleife, and though the team would complete the most laps with their #3 car (the other two, #1 and #2, retired early), an assortment of time penalties would see the Torino finish in fourth place officially.

At the end of 84 hours, only one of the three Torinos finished, and though it completed the most distance, it was penalized because of the high decibels of the exhaust, and so a Lancia Fulvia HF finished as the winner officially.

That race represented a remarkable milestone in the Argentinian motoring history, and it proved the country could build cars that could compete with the likes of Porsche, Lancia, Ford, etc.

the #2 car, with the yellow nose, has an astonishing rebuild story:

Mario or his son decided to search in old magazines in order to find information about what really happened. In one from 1971 a driver called Juan Carlos Palma was said to have bought a Torino to compete in the TC series, and that the vehicle was the #2 car ran at the Nürburgring.

When searching for Palma they figured they could find his phone number by his mechanic that was also mentioned in the article. So, the number was got from him and then they called Palma.

With the license plate number that Palma had they went to the Registry to look for the report and

Crawfish boats… crawfish, are like tiny lobsters, that live in swamps, marshes, and ponds and are trapped like minnows.

December 12th, 2017 by admin


These little crafts, heirs to the old Cajun swamp-going boats but with the benefit of generations of creativity and modern materials, are constructed both to glide along the top of a flooded field and to ride easily along dry roads, even going along the side of the highway toward the next crawfish field. No two of these boats are exactly alike because they’re not mass-produced in factories. Instead, they’re just made in the area where they’re needed by a handful of men who know how to build machines.

An engine operates a hydraulic pump and motor to propel a metal wheel that extends beyond the boat. Metal cleats are welded to the wheel, which is mounted to the rear to push the boat in shallow water. The hydraulic steering can be operated with foot pedals, leaving the driver’s hands free to empty and rebait traps.


there is even a good book about them

The Amazing Crawfish Boat chronicles the development of an amphibious boat that transformed the Louisiana prairies into alternating fields of aquaculture and agriculture. In seeking to understand how such a machine came into being, John Laudun describes the ideas and traditions that have long been a part of the Louisiana landscape and how they converged at a particular moment in time to create a new economic opportunity for both the rice farmers who used them and the fabricators who made them.
