Quote:
Lt. Col. David Faggard, a U.S. European Command spokesman, said the USS Porter, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer, was returning from an exercise with the Romanian navy when an Il-38 sub-hunting aircraft approached at a high speed and low altitude. The Il-38 was followed by two Su-24 fighter-bomber jets and then a single Su-24.

A much more functional rear wing on this one. That wimpy thing on that other one probably only provides 7 lbs. of downforce at 120.

They both lack one important feature, though.

From 100 meters... an RPG right there amidships. Perfect.

Owing to a team lineup with drivers of varying heights, Hella ****ty designed their Volkswagen Beetle with two drivers seats, each with matching sets of controls linked mechanically like some old airplanes.

This is really one of the most beautiful LeMons cars ever built and while we dont typically gush over race car replicas in LeMons, this is an utterly gorgeous, loving tribute to the Alpine Renault A210s that ran at Le Mans in the 1960s.

Instead, they bought an MR2 that had been wrapped around light pole, straightened it, and then shrouded it in a boxy Volkswagen Vanagon body painted in apropros Magnum P.I. T.C. Island Hopper paint scheme. It sure looks odd with the driver sitting essentially in the middle of the Vanagon, but the effect just adds to the Vanagons palpable effluence.
