…It’s Movie Monday: Redline?

Redline Poster

Porsche Carrera GT Wreck

They could take out all of the actors and just have a bunch of cars driving around and I still think I’d want to go see Redline. Described as The Fast and The Furious for exotics, this Daniel Sadek creation is a who’s who of the supercar world, including Ferrari, Saleen, Koenigsegg, Ford, Lamborghini, Mercedes, McLaren, and Porsche. Though I’m sure the acting by such greats as Eddie Griffin, Nathan Phillips and Nadia Bjorlin will be nothing short of Oscar worthy, it’s all about the car porn anyways. Plus, they even manage to wreck a perfectly good Porsche Carrera GT at some point in the plot line. Set for a February 23rd release date, this is going to be the car movie of 2007. Fear Nothing, Risk Everything.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Galpin Auto Sports?

GAS Mustang

Galpin Auto Sports might be the guys famous for pimping rides, but they’re also out to show the world they can do more than just mount a blender in your bumper. Specializing in putting everything and anything into and onto your ride, they teamed up with Ford for the debut of the new Boss 302 engine. The “Galpinized” BOSS Mustang features the 360 hp Boss engine under the hood, a Tremic TKO-600 5-speed to handle the shifting duties, and plenty of go-fast goodies to keep your back aligned. The car was then coated in a beautiful Grabber Blue paint job with matching black accents, and given a custom wing, shaker hood and rims to match the original 1970 BOSS cars. Xzibit would agree, the GAS Mustang has officially been pimped.

…Storm Launcher is the coolest new toy?

Storm Launcher

Here’s my prediction for the hottest new toy this holiday season: Storm Launcher by Spin Master Toys. I know, I know, TMX Tickle Me Elmos are already going on eBay for hundreds of dollars, but we’ve played that game years ago, and try as they might, the Tickle Me Elmo stampedes are a thing of the past in my book. The Storm Launcher is like every possible remote controlled vehicle rolled into one. It’s a car, it’s a boat, and a plane, all at the same time. Though it lacks wheels, a hull, or any discernable wings, it can cross any surface, including: grass, sand, concrete, water, air, and space (probably not space). If only Ford could make real vehicles that do all that, they’d be out of their financial quicksand. Don’t want to crash your brand new toy and burst it into flames on your first day of learning how to control the thing? Perfect, slide it into beginner mode and away you go. Itching to do some tricks and impress the neighbors? That’s what expert mode is for. Sounds pretty cool huh? I thought so too. Pick up a few and hit the eBay express, this thing’s gonna be hot.
