In their latest episode the wizards of Petrolicious (what the hell — when do you produce all this awesome stuff?) portray Jack Olsen ("Horsepower is something that looks great in a magazine article, but suspension is actually what gets you along the track ... fast."), his "Black Beauty II" 1972 Porsche 911 and his famous 12-Gauge Garage. Especially the garage is nothing for the faint-herated. Or is it just me who went green with envy?
Btw, 'episodes'. It ain't easy to follow Petrolicious' and their new releases, so here is everything you may have missed 'em. Enjoy.
If you live in Germany, the whole "Baader-Meinhof/Red Army Faction"-topic is ... err ... kinda precarious. Not so for Richard Huffmann, who just released this video. Richard explains: "[...] BMWs became so strongly associated with terrorism that a common joke emerged among Germans: "BMW" didn't stand for "Bavarian Motor Works" but instead stood for "Baader-Meinhof Wagen" after the notorious Baader-Meinhof Gang that was waging war against the German state. [...]".

"It's unfortunate the kids think that if they have spent 18k on a sport bike, that they are gonna be admired. Where did their dreams go? [...] It's sad, because it's the American Way of living. [...] It's not the pride of ownership — it's the pride of learning, it's the pride of building, it's the pride of creating something."
