    Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird Reconnaissance Plane

    My ultimate aircraft dream machine: the SR-71 Blackbird. Growing up I daydreamed how radical it would be to fly or ride in this plane. As black as an Ace of Spades and capable of a sustained cruising speed of Mach 3+, there was never any chance of being overrun or detected...

    AA-12 Full Auto Shotgun

    Devastating. If you were to splice a 30lb sledgehammer with an M16, this is what you'd get. Hehe ;) Please send check or money order to: Your *** Is Pwned  :)

    Southern Pacific Locomotive Plowing Snow

    I have always loved trains...basically they are the pinnacle of motive, land-based power.  In this clip a single Southern Pacific locomotive is seen busting through drifts pushing a plow car ahead of the engine. The diesel engine you hear is the sound of the railcrew's...

    2003 Cadillac Deville 572cid Burnout

    Now, for all the gearheads and wrench jockeys who see this clip...I know you think its cool. For everyone else, I think its sweet to throw a massive fatblock into a car and just let it rip!  And for those who have never seen something like this or ever hotrodded before...

    Truck Pulls: V12 Detroit Diesel

    This truck belongs to Valley Truck Parts out of Flint, Michigan.  I'm a redneck and I love it. I always loved going to truck and tractor pulls, since I was a kid and my grandfather would take me to the county fair.

    Here we have another sort of semi truck....many of the parts are similar to street stock, but beyond the chassis and cab, the rest is highly modified. From what I gather, this truck, "Built For Business," is running in excess of 3000 horsepower easily. And it has a triple...

    Semi-Truck Racing

    Now, a couple years ago when I was at my cousin's place, he says hey, look at this. And we watched several videos like this. It was the first time we had seen them. My cousin is a diesel mechanic, heavy equipment operator and has driven semi trucks for over 15 years. I also am...
