The Cars of Fast and Furious


Jalopnik went on set of Fast and Furious 4 and checked out some of the movie cars.
After watching the Grand National abuse in pre-film teasers we're happy to report they did not, in fact, destroy any real GNXs. These cars are merely clones. As you can see in the photos above, there are multiples of most of the character cars. This includes the Brian's R34 Skyline GT-R, which has a 240SX-based clone seen next to the GT in the gallery. Why accidentally destroy a real R34 when you can destroy a fake one?

Weaksauce : 1600 hp 0-60 mph in 2.1 seconds


Some people are funny. These guys are funny. The big claims guys. This is what you get when you combine one guy that is a business man, and one guy that is a chauffeur and thinks he knows a thing or two about cars. . Here is a perfect example. These guys call this a "production car". They took one Ultima GTR kit car, and put a twin turbo v-8 in it, with a 3 speed transmission.

Designer Marlon Kirby and financier David McMahan unveiled the Maxximus G-Force this morning in Beverly Hills, and they'll happily sell you one for $3 million. That kind of money buys you a car with a 7-liter twin turbocharged Chevrolet V8 engine
The car is quick. It should be quick. Its a twin turbo charged V-8, in a light chassis, with a ton of rear tire. However, it is in no way shape or form a production car. Offering a car, based on another car, is not a production car. Guys like this are a joke to me. If you put together a fast car, you put together a fast car. Don't call it a production car. Call it what it is, a kit car.

Oregon Introduces Bill to Prohibit Sale of Aftermarket Parts

Oregon Introduces Bill to Prohibit Sale of Aftermarket Parts

At the request of Governor Theodore Kulongoski, the Oregon Speaker of the House has introduced legislation (H.B. 2186) to prohibit the sale and distribution of aftermarket motor vehicle parts if alternatives are available that “decrease greenhouse gas emissions from motor vehicles.” The bill is primarily focused on aftermarket tires and would authorize the Environmental Quality Commission to implement enforcement regulations, likely based on a rolling resistance calculation.

We Urge You to Contact Oregon Speaker of the House Dave Hunt and Members of the Environment and Water Committee (Contact Information Below) Immediately to Request Their Opposition to H.B. 2186

* H.B. 2186 would regulate vehicle fuel economy, an authority reserved to the federal government.

* H.B. 2186 could ban tires that may have improved performance, handling or appearance features, based solely on a rolling resistance rating. In addition, this program could easily distract consumers from focusing on more important safety issues such as tire inflation and overloading of vehicles.

* H.B. 2186 would force consumers to purchase only original equipment manufacturer (OEM) tires because the program essentially exempts OEM-selected tires and unfairly implies that they are superior to aftermarket products.

* H.B. 2186 could prohibit aftermarket parts designed to either personalize or optimize specific vehicle performance attributes including handling, towing, suspension, fuel economy, etc.

* H.B. 2186 provides broad authority to government regulators and could limit a range of aftermarket parts currently available to consumers based on the subjective determination of government regulators.

DON’T DELAY! Please contact Oregon Speaker Dave Hunt and the House Environment and Water Committee immediately to urge his opposition to H.B. 2186.

Nissan to cut 20,000 jobs Worldwide

Nissan is going to cut 12,000 jobs in Japan , and about 8,000 other jobs worldwide.

Nissan Motor needed to shed some excess weight. About 8.5% of its entire work force, 20,000 jobs, will be cut worldwide after the automaker on Monday forecast a net loss of 265.0 billion yen ($2.9 billion) for the current fiscal year.

The cutting of the jobs will save Nissan about $2.0 billion dollars in 2009.

Nissan sold 731,000 vehicles worldwide in the quarter ending December, down 18.6% from the comparable period a year earlier.

Shares of Nissan Motor dropped by 16 yen (18 cents), or 5.8%, to a 52-week low at 261.00 yen ($2.85), following the loss warning.

Focus Auto Sales R34 in the OC Register


The OC. The real OC. Jackos R34 GT-R.

In fact, owner Jacko Luong of Huntington Beach believes there are less than 20 of these in the U.S. He acquired this yellow beauty a couple of years ago through Costa Mesa-based Kaizo, which imported this right-hand driver from Japan.

One thing Luong especially loves about this car is the big power its relatively small engine puts out. “I love being the underdog,” he says.
There aren't that many R34's in the US. Around 20-30. Motorex did about 12. Then Kaizo, plus other imports. Somewhere around there.
