Kia Motors to compete with Audi ? Surely not?
Korean car manufacturer Kia motors certainly made a shrewd move around a decade ago employing Peter Schreyer, one of Audi’s former senior designers. Working for his former German employers has certainly made an impact on Kia’s range of hatchbacks, saloons and crossovers, that Peter himself has overseen for his Korean employers. Kia’s production of these 3 ranges of motors has shown originaility from Schreyer, aswell as ‘loaned’ ’ features from his former employers at Audi. The maturing of Kia in the motor industry is now certainly taking hold as their motors now seem of a more original design, particularly with the third-generation Sorento seven-seat SUV. Kia themselves have stated that not only Audi, but the whole SUV market should be shaking in their shoes at this next phase in the companies R & D and recent production. This is obviously a bold statement from a manufacturer who not so long ago had the basic Pride and Magentis models as their best of breed. Read more
My John Deere Side by Side
Hey there everybody, I would like to welcome you all back to my vehicle blog. Today I want to talk about something that, as a farm boy, I have wanted to talk about for a long time and that topic is side by sides. I recently picked up a John Deer Gator Dump online from http://www.for-sale.com/john-deere-gator-dump for way less than I would pay in store and I love it. I used to use these all the time when I was working in the oil field, they are amazing vehicles for driving around fields full of rocks and dips, we even managed to get one up a creek once! These awesome machines fall under the category of UTV, or utility terrain vehicle and are one of the most helpful vehicles you can use when there are no roads. I want to share with you my love of these awesome vehicles. Read more
My buddy and I are looking forward to our next big hunting trip. The last one was almost a disaster as his piece of junk jeep broke down en route. Luckily for us, we broke down very close to a hillbilly mechanic who patched the old motor up in no time. Back on the road, hungry and tired, we made it to his hunting lodge around 12.30am. After sinking a couple of beers we both collapsed into a heap in our respective bedrooms. Our alarm clocks sounded at 4am. It’s very important to wake early when hunting for deer in North America. Wake too late and you’ll miss the deer during their own early morning hunting games. Read more
My friend Eddy has a couple of kids, both boys, and he’s as mad about motors, sports and motorsports as I am. He really wants the boys to join us on some of our adventures as they’re becoming older. Eddy is not the type of Dad you’ll find on a soccer field. You’re much more likely to find him buzzing around on dirt tracks or waterskiing at the local reservoir. He wants his boys to join him so they can have some father to son bonding time and they have been asking him eagerly if they can come with him, especially on his quad biking ventures. Eddy is very concerned about the boys’ safety. After all, all of his activities are high adrenalin junkie pursuits and come with risks attached. His wife is constantly worrying about him so goodness knows how she’ll feel about her two son’s also taking part in thrill seeking activities. Read more
Hi folks! Welcome back. I have had a very busy week at work and at home but I am excited about the coming months!! Read more
Welcome back again, how’s everyone doing? Well I’m doing pretty sweet I must say, works going well, everything’s settled at home and today the rain has finally stopped outside so I really can’t complain. So I’m going to get things rolling with my next post and, it’s kind of following on from my last one really. Remember that I was talking about my prized asset, the 50’S R-Type Bentley sitting pretty in my garage at home and I also mentioned about wanting to get it to some car shows this year? Well, I think I also said that I was a bit nervous driving it when I last took it for a spin as I was so worried some dimwit was going to pull out from nowhere and dent it. I would be absolutely beside myself if that happened so my senses were on overdrive as I was trying to keep my ears and ears focused. Read more
Welcome back guys. I bought this early last year in mint condition but have had a few tweaks made to it over the last 12 months so that its ready to parade at this year’s classic car shows. The soft tan leather inside is set-off beautifully against the silver exterior. The little additions that you got inside these Bentley’s were great. There’s rear foot rests, picnic tables and vanity mirrors. It even has the original old radio installed. Read more
Now if you’re one of those guys that always makes an excuse about not having time to go to the gym (but still manage to watch Eastenders), or you’re one of those people that does work truly mangled working hours where forming any sort of routine is just a nightmare, or there are any other excuses you can think of, but deep down, down in the depths somewhere is someone that actually wants to a bit (or a lot) or exercise, or at least try and keep fit, or get that beach body next time you go away on your summer holiday.

Hey everyone, hello and welcome to kind of the first official entry into my blog of sports and cars and all that goes with it. I’m not your average American motorsports fan because I actually like F1. A lot of us shun F1 for some reason, probably because it wasn’t our idea, and you know what us Americans are like! Read more
So I said that I love all things cars and sports, and I’ve just been reading up about one of my favourite cars, one that I would love to drive one day; the Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2. Read more
Hey everyone, welcome to my blog on sports and cars and sports cars and motorsports! Ha! Do you think I like sports and cars? Even better when the two are combined. My name is Luca and I love watching anything with an engine racing something else with an engine!
