2017 Ford GT

The 2017 Ford GT has been seen testing for the first time without a paint job. The car looks somewhat sinister and is coming into shape.

Ford has said that it will be powered by a V6 eco boost engine with over 600hp. There are a few out there that are quietly hoping that the 2017 Ford Gt is released with a V8 engine. Time will tell.

Check out the photo here.

Great White Shark causing excitement in Auckland

According to the NZ Herald, there is a 4 meter juvenile Great White shark that is visiting folks in their boats as they are out for a quiet days fishing. Surprise...


The quiet days fishing turns into mass hysteria as the shark jumps into the air and flops back into the water and the occupants of these boats are preforming world record anchor pulling and getting a few extra knots out of their beloved fishing boats as they travel back to terra firma.

All is good I guess, as long as you catch a few of these...

and none of this...

Who's going to be 2014 F1 driver champion?

With Mercedes AMG F1 winning the 2014 constructors championship at the last race in Russia, we are left with the exciting racing between the two Mercedes AMG F1 drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton as to who will be the champion this year. If both Nico and Lewis fail to get over 300 points and Daniel Ricciardo of Infiniti Red Bull racing wins the last 3 races, then he will be champion.

Lewis Hamilton is currently leading the championship with 291 points

Nico Rosberg is in second with 274 points

Daniel Ricciardo is third with 199 points.

Points awarded per race are:

1st : 25 points
2nd : 18 points
3rd : 15 points
4th : 12 points
5th : 10 points
6th : 8 points
7th : 6 points
8th : 4 points
9th : 2 points
10th : 1 point

The last race of the year which is in Abu Dhabi on November 21-23rd 2014 will award double points for the season finale.

If Lewis Hamilton comes 2nd in the last 3 races and Nico wins the last 3 races, Nico will be champion.

If Nico wins the next 2 races and Lewis Hamilton comes second in the next two races and wins the final race with Nico coming second, then Lewis Wins.

If Nico comes in second to Lewis Hamilton in the next 2 races and wins the finale, then Lewis wins.

If either retire a race or two then anything is possible.

Who ever wins the championship this year will have well and truly earned it. #ForzaJules

California Legacy Plates

The California DMV has an awesome program which will enable you to order reproduction 1950 (yellow and black), 1960 (black and yellow) and 1970's ( blue and yellow) style number plates for your car or bike registered in California. This was created as California Vehicle Code Section 5004.3 and was added by Assembly Bill 1658 (Gatto), enacted in the 2012 Legislative session.

For the program to be implemented and for the plates to be made, at least 7500 of the style of plates need to be ordered and paid for. The plates can be put on any vehicle and is not part of the YOM program, which is for 1972 and older vehicles only. Currently the most popular is the black and yellow plate which has 5383 orders.

I would like the blue and yellow plate for my 74 vehicle, since the DMV and YOM program currently will not allow me to put the original blue and yellow plates that came with the vehicle originally to be re registered to the car. I hope that we get to 7500 in the Blue and yellow plates, or the DMV changes the YOM program to enable all cars with blue and yellow plates originally issued, to be able to re register if you have the original plates.

The DMV website says that they have until January 1st 2015 to get the required 7500 paid orders of any one type of plate to start the program, so time to get cracking and order your legacy plate, or one as a gift for your friends and family.

 Assemblyman Mike Gatto of Los Angeles 43rd district came up with this bill and I like it.
