I Saw My Second Nissan GTR!

I just saw my second, live, honest to goodness Nissan GTR.  This one was black, and this time I had my iPhone handy. 

The photos aren't the best, since I took them while driving behind the GTR, but I'll take what I can get.

Oh yeah, it looked very, very nasty and nice!

Nissan GTR - Cool Fact

I learnt a new cool fact about the Nissan GTR.

In Japan, road cars are electronically governed to a maximum speed of 112 mph.   The Nissan GTR is meant to act as a sane road car, when needed, and it follows this rule.

However, if you drive up to a race track in Japan, the GTR's sat nav system figures this out, and switches the governor off, so you can thrash the car around the track to your heart's content.

That's cool!

Fifth Gear Video Of The Week - Lamborghini Gallardo

This week, instead of a Top Gear video, I'm putting up a Fifth Gear video.  Why?  Because its awesome, that's why!

In particular, check out the sideways action half of the way through.  Makes me feel I wouldn't mind switching my rear-wheel BMW 335i convertible for the LP560-4

GM's Pains Continue

GM continues its downward spiral, with an announcement for another 10,000 job cuts. 

Depressing.  But they still gainfully employ 80,000 - 85,000 people, so hopefully their strategies make sense.

I'm expecting more job cuts by the end of April, however.
