Gotta love the meaty tires on this S2k.  No hyphy stretched camber madness going on.  GRIP!

This thing is muy caliente!  NSX…so jummy.

I seriously don’t know if I’ll ever get tired of the lines of the NSX.  Can’t stop, won’t stop.

Ridin’ Dirty

While on the topic of Bisimoto, check out the 2012 Civic Si he built and debuted at the 2011 Honda SEMA booth.  Nope, you’re not seeing things…that’s a parachute on a 1,000hp civic being driven on the street next to a police car!  I can’t even imagine what thoughts went through the cops mind when he saw this thing.  Simply MONSTER!

HEART

4 12 2011

There are some people you come across in life where you say…wow…they are just really lucky and fortunate to be where they are…

Then there are the others.  People who have succeeded time and time again no matter the cards that they were dealt, just pure sheer will and heart.  People who have accepted their fate, and overcome their weaknesses instead of crying about them.  It’s hard enough to be a champion in life, to truly believe in yourself, and to push  yourself to compete harder than anyone day in and day out no matter the results.  It really is a different breed, the heart, the hunger, the strength and the courage of a lion.  Do you have what it takes to climb to the mountain top, and then look for the next highest peak to challenge yourself? And what if you were at the top…but wake up one day realizing you were now at the lowest of lows…would you still have that winning competitive strength to keep going?

At this point, you might be asking yourself, what is with all this mindless banter?

One man is responsible.  Alex Zanardi

If you aren’t familiar with Alex Zanardi, he was a dominant Indy Car open wheel race car driver here in the United States in the mid to late 1990’s.  In 2001, he suffered a near fatal accident seen below.

Sorry for the German version, I couldn’t find a decent English clip, fast forward to about 1:40 to see the accident itself.  This was, and still is one of the worst accidents I’ve seen in my life…I’ve literally seen fatal accidents less violent.  As a result of his cockpit being sheered in half, Alex Zanardi lost both his legs.  Well…time to throw in the towel right?

Not for Alex.  This past November, Alex won the hand cycle division of the 2011 New York City Marathon in 1 hour, 13 minutes, 58 seconds. It was his fifth time in the NYC classic  Alex hit a curb entering the final 1/4 mile in Central Park loosening his bike’s chain.  With the end in sight, Alex was able to power back and take P1 beating Poland’s Rafael Will by just 2 seconds!  At 45 years old, Alex is considering representing Italy in 2012 at the Paralympics in London.

The next time you think it’s you against the world, be thankful for what you still have to work with..not what’s missing.  Bottom line, you live your life, no one can fight the fight for you…if you want it bad enough drive toward it and don’t stop.  We are all juggernauts if you set your mind to it.  Cheers to Alex Zanardi!  I’d say I respect him, but respect doesn’t even do him justice.  Admirable beyond all means.  Let his will and his fight inspire us all.

Two DECADES

18 11 2011

It’s amazing that the NSX design has essentially been the same for over the last two decades, yet it is still always able to captivate my attention.  It just goes to show, when you do something right, it can capture a consumer for a life time.
