The end of one and the start of another….

June 12, 2008

Well I no longer own a 2002 Chevy Blazer, i do still have my truck, I now own a 2005 VW GTi.  My very first non-GM vehicle.

So I am sad to say that I will not be updating Zero To Sixty with GM info.  This is now a VW blog.  I hope that many of my regulars will keep reading.

Soooooo what is up in the world of Das Auto?

Well the new Scirocco has been annonced and did well on the Nürburgring Ring in a 24 hour race.

They place 1-2 in their class and 11th overall.  Not to shabby for a 2.0l.

Well look for more in the coming days…lots of changes…

Zero to Sixty to change a little…

May 14, 2008

As we, my wife and I, will be going from a 2 Chevy home to a 1 Chevy home the blog will change a bit.  I am gonna keep it on the down low till the paperwork get through…

To go along with the theme of this post, there is a good article for all us gas guzzling truck and SUV owners, over at Yahoo.

I want to live in Austrailia…

I love Holden.  The designs, the power, everything….well the cost is out of my range but nonetheless.

So I am looking at the Holden site and come across this Coupe on the main page.  I clicked it and I now want one of these…the Coupe 60.

This thing is nice, 2 door piliarless design, six liter, 6 speed….its stunning.

So go here…

Ahhh, the car truck…..

April 28, 2008

I can remember the first time i saw a car/truck….the El Camino. I wondered to myself, what an odd little vehicle. Looks like a car, yet has a bed…..weird. The El Camino is back in the states….well kinda.

Thanks to Jalopnik for posting this vid…it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.
