TIME ATTACK - A GIANT-KILLING HONDA!

There are rare occasions when electricity chooses to remain a distant friend. There is no other way to account for my utter ignorance or my 'in the dark' status as it relates to this machine which is known affectionately as Mighty Mouse. The machine was born and raised as a Honda CRX but somewhere along its trek to maturity, its owner decided to hurl the tiny creature into ring in which voracious sharks are permanent residents. Time attack is a one [...]

FORMULA 1 NEEDS THIS!

So, I am somewhat befuddled. In this the year labelled 2017, technology continues to claim success in areas that only the Jetsons were aware of. If a smart phone is stolen, we have the ability to activate that which is unknown to the thief and grab him while he boasts about his new acquisition. Drones currently ply their search and destroy trade devoid of human occupation. But, we are still engaged in clueless, head-scratching searches for behemoths such as an aircraft [...]

Although donations are asked for throughout the year at certain times it seems as if everyone is asking for a donation. [...]

Do you have an unclaimed bank account?

I can't imagine anyone forgetting they have money in a bank. Every account I have, is monitored very carefully. That's why it was shocking to learn that there are a number of persons who leave their money untouched in the bank for years. If I had some money out there then certainly I would be at that bank as soon as it's doors open ready to claim my money! Accounts which havenít been touched for 15 years or more, despite attempts by [...]

THE 2JZ IS STILL A MONSTER - SUPRA LOVE!

Weather permitting the NDRC will be allowed to unveil the next edition of its Full Throttle series. The revised date is November 19th. So, if the sun grows a pair, warms up and decides to overthrow the raging systems which continue to pummel us with relentless rain, we will be rolling to Clarendon's official speed-spot. All things being equal, we will get yet another opportunity to experience the ensemble of speed which will disperse force-fed and n/a notes from Vernamfield's proven [...]
