What to watch this weekend during your NYE hangover (Dec 31st - Jan 2nd)

  • Wheeler Dealers Marathon. Saturday @ 6am - Sunday @ 6am (Discovery's High Def Theater)
  • Off Road Championship. Sunday @ 10am - 11am (Discovery's High Def Theater) replay
  • Mille Miglia - The Spirit of a Legend. A look into this historic race. Sunday @ 11am - 1pm (Discovery's High Def Theater - THD) replay
  • Top Gear America - Used Car Salesmen. Sunday @ 10pm - 11pm (History Channel/History Channel HD)
More slim pickin's this Winter season. Good thing there are college football bowl games to watch. Oh wait, did I say that out loud? Speaking of shows I don't mention often, Wheeler Dealers is another. WD is a UK based automotive show following a mechanic and salesman who buy cars, do necessary repairs then flip them for profit (sound familiar?). The good thing about this long running television series is that they cover a wide variety of makes and models, from Mercedes-Benz 190E 16-valve Cosworths to Toyota MR2s to Porsche 928s, while providing good insight to buying each model used including typical issues. The key here is finding value in vintage, as there are plenty quality automobiles out there with a hundred thousand miles or two on them.

For the love of P. #6 - GT3R Hybrid

Porsche's continuing R&D on the technology being utilized within the GT3R Hybrid takes them to the Petit Le Mans, on Road Atlanta this past September. No major victory here, but a quality outing with great data to use going forward. This was speculated to be the last appearance of this true Porsche Works team until 2011, but it reappeared to win it's first race at the 1,000km race in Zhuhai. It was definitely good to see the brand push the envelope this year.

Car Pron: FLD Episode 1000

I was thinking of what the headliner Monday post was going to be, for this last week before the new year, but it couldn't have been better timing. One of my favorite webshows, Fast Lane Daily, whom I've mentioned before on here just celebrated their 1000th episode by filming a special in the Ring' to be specific. Enjoy (in fullscreen HD).
