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!

Apocalyptic and Post Apocalyptic Vehicles #1

ford f650 Flat Black china

The Ford F-650 seems like it would be a good candidate for an end of the world scenario when it come to needing power and cargo room this would be a good choice. a downfall of this rig would be the amount of gas it burns. The F-650 would be able to ram through miles of abandoned cars but in the event of a gas shortage it would run out of fuel laving you stranded and wishing for a more eco friendly utility vehicle.

FX-4 Defense SUPER-LIGHTWEIGHT CONCEPT   MOTORCYCLE

The FX-4 From FX Bikes is the worlds lightest adult sized dirt bike/ motorcycle. It has a 125cc engine and only wights 125lbs this is definitely being added to my survival list! That thing is so light I could lift it over a fence myself! It seems like you could take this thing though any kind of terrain and it also looks like it would be really fun!

Believe it or not the VW Beetle makes the list! These tried and true rigs are very easy to work on with their simple air-cooled engine and are also very reliable. I say the most important thing about an end of the world vehicle is the ability to find parts and VW produced around 21.5 Million of them and has the 4th highest production numbers of all time.

If I had to choose one of the three I think I would pick the bug!!! and it looks really sick!!!!

Outrageous Motor Trends

Okay, rides like this are called Donks. They usually have really big wheels, are lifted and are generally late 70’s to early 90’s cars.

Donks can generally be found in more urban areas. I gotta give props to the work and dedication it takes to create a ride like this!

Bosozoku car

We probably won’t see cars like this in the U.S. for a bit but the style of these cars are called Bosozoku. They generally have crazy body mods and huge exhaust pipes.

Cars like this are more popular in Japan right now but I’m sure that we will see more of these type of cars in other parts of the world soon enough.
