I was really late getting in to work today. I didn't wake up until 12 minutes before I was supposed to be here. I debated calling in sick and I thought and thought to try to come up with an excuse I hadn't used some variant of already. Tandra said she would be my scapegoat so if I get asked I will probably go that route. Tandra is cool :-)
As I mentioned yesterday I'm out of crop circles, so I'm going to something much more typical - cars. I like all kinds of cars, as long as they go fast, so I'll be posting a car of the day. I'll still check the crop circles, and whenever there are new ones, I'll post them instead, but it looks like the season is coming to a close.
The car of the day is not meant to be the ultimate car. It's not there to be the fastest or the prettiest or anything else. I might post a picture of a Le Mans car, or a rally car, or a street car, or a car stereo, or whatever.
Today it's the Toyota TS020 GT-One.
This car has a 3.6 litre twin-turbo V8. It makes around 600 hp and weighs 1984 lbs. The engine is mounted amidships and the car has a 6-speed transmission.
This car led the 24 hours of Le Mans race in 1999 up until the last hour when it had a tire blowout. It still finished second.
This is one of my favorite cars in Gran Turismo 2 and 3.
A cool explanation of some of the unique aerodynamic properties of the GT-One.
