WTF Friday: Scooter with VW Bus sidecar

0

For those of you following along you already know that I think vans can rock stance just as hard as cars but I have not really said anything about scooters being able to do so. I know about the movement that’s going on, but only in passing, and I have no intentions on ever owning one however I think this scooter with a VW bus sidecar is absolutely amazing and warrants a post regardless of suspension setup. I wonder how many drinks were involved when this was thought up.

Riding this around without drawing attention is probably impossible. Look the lights even work!

I can’t find a lot of additional info on this scooter so I don’t really know wtf inspired the person to build it which makes it perfect for wtf Friday!

This weekend there are three big shows in the GTA that I know about, and I am going to be hitting at least two of the three so expect lots of new original content on Monday and Tuesday. Get stoked!

Hump Day

Wednesday is known as hump day so I gotta ask did you make it? Or did you have as hard of a time getting over your hump as these cars did?

Speed Issues = Maintenance Saturday August 15th

1

I am sure some of you have noticed that the site has been crawling lately. The home page can take up to 14 seconds to load and sometimes the admin page takes 43 seconds. Lame and annoying.

Therefore on August 15th between between 8-12pm Eastern Daylight time I am going to to increase the performance of the site. Hopefully after that the site is back up to snuff. If not time to work on version 2.0

This picture has nothing to do with speed but I've been sitting on it for awhile so what the hell

Theme Tuesdays: Civic EFs

0

The concept of theme Tuesdays here on Grosirbajuanak is simple, every Tuesday I pick a theme and post a collection of vehicles with that theme that meet the stance criteria (modified suspension that fit the vehicles overall theme). This weeks theme Tuesday topic is: Civic EFs

Having just come from the 6th Honda Tech meet I figured what better time than now to post up some of the EF pics I have been collecting. As the years go by these cars are getting rarer and rarer due to the notorious so let’s appreciate them while we can.

Event Coverage: 6th Annual Toronto H/T

The sixth annual Toronto meet went down yesterday and initially the weather looked as though we would all need scuba gear to attend but it all cleared up and when I showed up around three it ended up being so hot that other than a few puddles here and there late risers would have never known it rained.

Note: I apologize for the speed issues on the site of late. Something is up with my hosting package and I am working on sorting it out. I can’t even connect to the ftp half the time… anyway.

Event Coverage: The Bimmer Experience

My gf gave me the heads up on this show last weekend, and even thought I had a lot of things going on Saturday I was able to make it out with the point and shoot and take a few photos at this charity BMW show. Though the turnout was kind of small when I was there the show¬† had a great family/positive atmosphere it’s always good to see people come out and support local events and charities.

WTF Fridays: 10 Crazy Youtube Street Racing Crashes

0

This is a little cross contamination from my other blog, , but I feel the post fits Grosirbajuanak really well and a lot of the crashes are of the wtf how did that happen or wtf were they thinking variety. And with the recent local new story of this weeks WTF Friday fits.

I’m sure most of you stance readers have either¬† seen or heard of a street race in our time, lets all just be thankful none of them ended up like this.

Local Bonus!
I was called out to drift the ring this night way about in around 2006, Jamaicans don’t like the rain however so I stayed my ass inside. I regret it because I would have loved to see this in person.

10. We will start this shebang off with a good old engine failure. No crash but I bet the repair bill wasn’t cheap.

9. Two civics, one parking lot, tons of space, and yet they still manage to find each other.

8. This one is kind of hard to see but, a typical situation. Person A passes Person B then person B passes Person A, this goes back and forth until they actually race happens, or this.

7. Mis-shifted himself right into the ditch.

6. Flipping a car off a race track is normally a hard task, unless you lack the common sense that tells you not to do a burn out on a slant. I bet dad is pissed.

5. This type of thing happens often, since a lot of the spectators at street races are paying attention to a lot of things other than the race that’s going on. This guy probably got a call from his mom to come home and forgot where he was.

4. Oversteer can be a bitch when you are not ready for it. I feel bad for the people in the other lane.

3. Could it be that the above happened to two Mustang owners on the same day on the same corner?

Nah… right?

2. This one is really, really old, but still to this day I am not really sure how he managed to ball up a burn out so bad that he had enough forward momentum to carry him uphill into the Jetta and do so much damage to it. That takes some sort of skill.

1. Number one is the longest one but by far the funniest. The way these two geniuses try and deal with the problem by staging an accident at the end is just too much.

I think this mk3 is one of the cleanest and lowest in the GTA. I have seen it in person at a few meets of all places and I think the Audi TT fat fives on this ride are another example of one brands trash becoming another brands treasure. The vr6 under the hood and the recently updated front will keep this car looking, and sounding (nothing sounds quite like a vr6) sexy for years to come.
