This freakishly warm weather in Maryland has got me in a great mood. I'm thinking about blowing money on my car again and that's always a good thing. Not for long term, but in the short term it's pretty damn awesome. In the meantime there's a bit of variety on the automotive entertainment front this weekend; more Top Gear of course, but also a marathon of Street Customs to setup the premier of the newest season of this series named Inside Street Customs at 9pm on Sunday. This doesn't check the motorsport box by any means, but about 70% of being an enthusiast is wrenching so building cars, regardless of style, is always relevant.

Car Pron: Racing in Slow Motion 3

My buddy Brian, who takes care of my VW parts needs, put me onto this series of vids right before the new year. What can you say besides it's the best of all the stuff we all love, in sweet HD. This is the third video in the series, resulting from one mans vision, so check out his youtube channel(s) and support him by subscribing if you like his work. Enjoy.

For the love of P. #7 - 9ff GTurbo 1200

9ff is at it again with the GTurbo 1200 package. I'm not sure if any of you frequent the M5boards and their races between new exotics and exotic tuner cars, but there's been a orange 9ff GTurbo 1200 running around on that airfield causing a ruckus for some time now. The GTurbo 1200 is based on the GT3RS but benefits from two very large turbos. This is the most hardcore and high powered package that 9ff offers. Option Auto has gotten a hold of one of 9ff's GTurbo 1200 customer cars for a thorough test drive. Turn on the HD, subtitles and enjoy this video series.
