Gumball 3000 in the United States

I just returned from Las Vegas. Yeah, I went after Gumball 3000 again. It’s official: Gumball is different in the United States. There aren’t crowds of 20,000 people and there isn’t Jon Olsson’s DTM-inspired Audi RS6 (yeah, I’m a bit bitter about that). Like Germany, America has rules, and also strict punishments to those who don’t abide. I don’t even know why Gumball bothers coming back. But before you read my rant, just know there’s a silver lining to every story.

Street View Spotting Vol.12

McLaren is a name that is recognized even by people who can’t differentiate a Corvette and a Camry. So when Google takes Street View into the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, England, you know it’s going to be something special.

Street View Spotting Vol.11

Street View Spotting has primarily focused on exotics, but today we have something a little different… and more American. In Ukraine. Any guesses? Yes, that’s right. Two Dodge Charger Daytonas in Kiev.

Street View Spotting Vol.10

Today we are going to feature the most photographed car in the world in front of the most expensive store in the world. Ignoring the accuracy of those assumptions, Bijan and his Bugatti Veyron attract constant attention on Rodeo Dr. in Los Angeles.

Street View Spotting Vol.9

What are some of your favorite TV shows? If you’re reading this blog, then I’m sure Top Gear is near the top of that list. Fortunately, Google Street View has captured the Stig in one of the craziest Mercedes’ ever… the SLS AMG Black Series.

Car Culture in Los Angeles

Being a senior in college and a huge car aficionado, I wanted to make my last winter break memorable. Where else to have a good time than Los Angeles!? However, timing was not on my side. Cars and Coffee Irvine was at the top of my to-do list, but it has finally been shut down after 8 years due to ‘noise complaints’. Well, that sucks. But after all, it’s California; I found plenty of car stuff to do.
