Ferrari Enzo Ferrari, Porsche RUF, Nissan GT-R, Mercedes AMG. Just a few cars I have filmed during their stop at this gas station at the Nurburgring in Germany.
This was during the Scuderia Hanseat 2011. These cars are all filmed in one hour. nfortunately I couldn't record all cars of the Scuderia Hanseat.

One of our most popular world records over recent years has been the hotly contested tightest parallel parking title.
The record has changed hands five times in the past two years, with our video of German driving ace Ronny Wechselberger 's successful attempt last year becoming something of an internet sensation with viewing figures hitting the millions.
When Patrik Folco neatly slid his way into a gap measuring just 22 cm (8.66 in) longer than the car he was driving last month it set a benchmark that looked unlikely to be broken.
However, the record has indeed once again been smashed , this time by Chinese master wheelman Han Yue.
Han last week managed to shave off an incredible 7cm from the record, drifting into a space of just 15 cm (5.91 in) longer than his vehicle during an attempt at the launch in Beijing of a new special edition of the Mini called The Chinese Job.

Bad drivers in Portland! It would be a great time for Alice Cooper...but someone stole my Alice Cooper Greatest Hits CD in middle school...so no "School's Out for Summer"...today at least. Even though today (Mon, Jun 11) was in fact the last day of school. Technically we have school tomorrow, but it's just a day where we get to blow the tax payer's money and play around in the rain at Silver Falls. I just love June in Oregon...rain...freakin' all the time.
Today also marks the 40th anniversary of the Bad Drivers in Portland series!! This summer is looking a little bid odd for video uploads. Every ten days, I'm with my mom. The other ten days I'm with my dad. On days with my dad I'll have one brother to watch, and probably won't do a ton of driving. Probably still a little though.
On the ten days with my mom, I'll have 3 brothers. And we live in a tiny condo (thank god they just put an offer down on a 5 bedroom house!) so there will probably be an incredible amount of goofing off and driving. Maybe we feel like going to the beach...the zoo...the mountain...the river...the lake....the rain forest....the desert. All of these things are less than an hour and half from Portland! What I think will end up happening is that I'll get about twice the amount of clips I need for a video at my moms...and a little less than I need for a whole video at my dads. So what will probably end up happening is clips won't be very chronologically organized, but I should still have a good video up per week. Worst case scenario, I post one every two weeks. Or a shorter video every week? Leave your thoughts about that in the comments' page.
Moving on...This week involved be being nice! Well...a little anyway. I didn't use my horn a whole ton (little beeps here and there though, probably still near the number I use it on a regular basis) but only laid on it for the dumbass who decided to pull a U-turn immediately after pulling onto a side-road. I nearly hit them - the car behind me very nearly hit me - and there was a near-pileup on the main road because the car behind me stopped with his ass sticking out. There was skidding, though the camera did not catch that for some reason (I would get a rear-cam, but they are expensive).
Lots of other people honking too (in fact it might have outweighed mine)...couple I had to look closely to figure out what was going on.
So yeah....enjoy! Happy 40th to you all!

What Car Would Steve McQueen Drive Today?
If the only car Steve McQueen ever drove in his day was a 1956 Jaguar XKSS he'd still be one of the coolest car guys around. But what new cars would he drive if McQueen were alive today?
Not to mention, McQueen also had a 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, a 1976 911 Turbo and a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTS/4 NART Spyder, a 1953 Siata 208S boutique sports car, and that's not even scratching the surface. But would any modern cars pass the McQueen test? Sure. What would they be?
