Two Polish 70s rally legends: factory spec Fiat 125p Monte Carlo (with a twin cam 1600cc engine) replica and Andrzej Jaroszewicz:

I find it wonderful how... imprefect the car is. You can see it and hear it. A lot of work has gone into that car to make it as close to original as possible: it could not be too good. Also, I think this shows that the argument about muscle cars having shit handling can be put to rest: EVERYTHING had shit handling back then, mainly due to tires.

#1401, It's actually pretty amazing how far tires have progressed....arguably more than any other vehicle component. I was reading in a magazine (Mopar Action, I believe it was) a few years back, and they did a 0-60 test on a 1968 Dodge Charger Hemi, which ran 6.5 seconds on factory-style bias-plies. They then put modern street radials on it, and that time dropped to 4.8 seconds. It's all in the traction....

Fuck you, Formula 1:

Must be my favourite form of racing right now, second to endurance racing. The only gripe I have is that you can't hear or see that the cars are turbocharged >:(

1970s-vintage police pursuit instruction video narrated by Jack Webb. Corny, but it has some good driving tips, and lots of Dodge Polara hoonage (plus some performance from a '65-'66 Mustang fastback and a '71 'Cuda).

#1405, This is actually very good. Covers all of the most important aspects, situational awarness, weight transfer, and the importance of seat time/practice: no matter how many books you read or videos you watch you will *not* be ready for what happens near, at and past the limit of adhesion. Also, it's clear and concise: something like this should be shown at all driver's ed classes. I cannot stress how appaled I am at the way driver education is handled in Poland, and the further east you go... just watch any russian dash cam compilation and count how many times they don't pay attention, speed, run red lights and loose control of their cars in the most mindfuckingnumbing seemingly impossible ways (do they have hydraulic e-brakes installed and just randomly pull on them???).

#1406, The most amazing thing for me in those Russian dash cam videos is how many people pull random left turns without any advance notice or even checking their mirrors for traffic or trying to be in the correct lane to turn from. Baffling.

#1407, Yeah, just not giving a fuck, like they are the only car in the world. How *do* they get their licenses? A separate breed are expensive cars and SUVs just trying to barge others off the road. I wonder how many times someone got shot after hitting one of them.

#1410, Pure sex. There was a short period of my life when I could afford to just take a car for a drive for the hell of it and had a car that actually I enjoyed enough to do so. I hope I will be able to do that again some time on the future.
Language question: can you say 'I had fascination ON sth' not 'WITH sth', like he does?
#1409, Shame about the quality :(

#1411, I haven't heard the former ("fascination on") used in English unless the word "fascination" is a proper noun like a product applied to house plants or a stage show on ice.

And I can kind of relate. I've cut down on driving in general due to cost, and haven't really gone driving somewhere just for the hell of it in about a year. I'd love to autocross our truck again, but the tires are at that tender spot between "they're 12 years old, go have fun" and "they're 13 years old, I don't want you having a blowout and stuffing it into a barrier". A set of new tires for that crate have almost doubled in price since my dad last bought them. Once it gets new tires, I doubt it will be seeing the track anytime soon.

I still drive for fun here and there. I drove the Granada to my high school town about 30 miles away a couple of weeks ago, for the hell of it.

I do drive for entertainment sometimes if I'm already in the area for a particular reason; usually that means I drive for the purpose of locating interesting cars to photograph as a side trip from whatever else I came for.

The fucked up situation over here means that if you have a shit job (like I do right now) a single fill up can take 1/5th of your month's wages. This is slightly offset by the fact I mostly drive on autogas. Still, because of my psychosis I'd probably spend the last penny on a rally or on blasting up and down twisting country lanes at 70mph. It's soul crushing to be a car person and not being able to afford it, especially when you have a car that you like that has some minor problems that you KNOW will get worse unless you fix them... but you can't since you are broke. <:(

#1417, Because if you have a basic grasp of English and/or French you can make great money at it? I forget if it's true but I read that Canada also has a pretty welcoming attitude toward immigrants provided you keep your nose clean before and after coming.

#1418, There a lot of stories over here of people who made good money in Canada working as lumberjacks.
