RC Drift Cars

These tiny drift cars look sick! Just as much fun and customization as a life size car without the worries of a wreck!

Made possible by a collaborative effort from GM and a chemical company by the name of Rohm & Haas.

Rohm & Haas had just developed plexiglass.

I love how you can see the inner workings. It’s an interesting concept. More people would know more about how their cars work every time they opened the door.

Miniature Vintage Street Scenes

Michael Paul Smith recreates scenes from the 1920’s through the 1960’s using small scale models and some clever ways to trick the eye. The scenes look so real!

It’s amazing how forced perspective can trick the mind into thinking these cars are life size.

Smith does all of this without the use of Photoshop.

These scenes look like they would be fun to recreate!

Peugeot 202 motor lust

This is what the Peugeot model 202 would have once looked like. I love the way the headlights look under that grill!

Very beautiful…

Rocket Powered VW Beetle

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

How often do you see 1350 horse power in a car that is street legal? That would be a lot of fun on the freeway during rush hour  traffic!!! I would probably get arrested!!!

I gotta say that home built rocket powered cars don’t look very cool at all.

VW jet engine car

The funniest thing about this car to me is that its bone stock minus this gigantic jet engine in the back!!! I’m sure the stock ride height and wheels help with stability and whatnot but come on… at least get the rims painted black or something!

Check out that filter! I wonder how loud that thing is on the inside of the car? Sure looks like it would be a blast to drive though!
