Some Cool Autophobia Pics!

Hurricane Sandy

As we all batten-down the hatches and make the best plans we can with Sandy bearing down on all of us here on the East Coast.  Just a quick note to all my views in these impacted areas to please stay safe & be smart!

NY Comic Con, all I can say is WOW!

This was a first for me to go to NY Comic Con and I have to say it was truly an experience!  The first thing you notice is the sheer volume of people attending this event over the 4 days. Next was the time, effort and money people spent on their costumes, some of these people should be working in Hollywood. Last Geeks & Nerds of the world you have done it, shows like Big Bang Theory have made you COOL!  I never expected to see the range and scope of people at an event like this, plus attractive women dressing-up as Superheros when did that happen? The Big Band Theory's writers may have to re-think their premise that Greeks can't attract babes;do you hear that Stewart from the Comicbook store your time has come, you no longer have to spend your nights alone sharing a can of tuna-fish with a stray cat. All kidding aside it was fun and a heck of a crazy time, my recommendation is that everyone should experience it at least once in their lifetime.  So put down that comic book for now and run don't walk to a party in your honor!

Ferrari's "50th" Anniversary in Italy.


Well just encase you all out there were wondering, we've been car people for over 25 years! Let's hit the way-back button to show you this photo of our Ferrari Factory Tour in Maranello, Italy in 1997.  This was my Graceland, I was soooo stoked I couldn't wait to get there.  It was at the end of our trip to Europe and it never seemed like it was going to arrive.  After the factory tour we received a tour of the test track, then it was off to the Ferrari museum and then my personnel favorite lunch at the factory restaurant.  We sat right next to the CEO of Ferrari Lucca di Montezemolo, Enzo Ferrari's second son and then VP of Ferrari Piero and Ross Brawn one of the heads of Ferrari's Formula One Team.  I know its crazy, I don't even remember what I ate but I couldn't get over that everything and I mean everything was embossed with the Ferrari Prancing Horse symbol even the tooth picks!  I still have those tooth picks today 15 years later, in-fact I'm starring at them right now.  Crazy huh, what you remember.  Well tooth picks or not it was one of the Best trips of my life, how could it not be when I have JC by my side!  Ciao

Time for me to rail against the machine!


Ok, I'm jumping up on my soap box to ask the question, are we for real in this country about seat-belt laws!?!  Come'on really, this is a pressing issue in today's society?  So let me get this straight I can ride a motorcycle with NO helmet, NO seat-belts, NO airbags but in a car surrounded by metal and full of airbags I have to wear a seat-belt to protect myself?  Am I a danger to society?  Ok don't answer that!  As an adult do I NOT have the ability to make my own decisions?   Or like in this South Park clip above will I get a ticket next if I don't wear a seat-belt on the john?  This is truly to much interference by our government, is it for our own good? or wait a minute is it just simply about the $$$$$$!!!  Whatever it is, I think it is Ridiculous and a total invasion of my privacy to boot!  Free will that's dead too and if you're wondering YES I did get a ticket! LOL



Zombie Apocalypse everyone knows its coming, otherwise why would everybody be talking about it?  Maybe because the Mayan's predicted  the end of the world later this year or the fact that every movie and TV show producer has done a show about it and if ratings are any indication we're all watching or is it that we are all just crazy?  Who knows but if the End of the World is really coming (tongue-in-cheek) then this is the Car/SUV I want hands down no question.  A Knight XV Armored Assault Vehicle, it makes a Hummer look like a toy car, damn I'd better trade-in my Hummer SUT now and beat the rush.  Now I'm sure you're saying Mac what about all those cool custom vehicles with the spikes and  re-bar welded all over them.  Well I'll give you that in the over the top department they win but they'll probably be about as effective as taping a sign to the side of your car that reads "NO HUMANS IN HERE".  If I'm going-out I want to go out in Style!  Not to mention comfort & roominess, heck I can even take 4 additional desperate friends/family members with me (seats up to 6, so my wife, do the math) Plus it's armored; encase those crazy zombies learn how to shoot guns too.  Maybe just eating brains isn't enough in their zombie arsenal.  It could happen, it's as likely a scenario as anything else???  All kidding aside I watch all these TV shows and movies too, hell I love the "Walking Dead" on AMC, I never miss an episode.  The bottom photo cracked me up, after all you're gonna need a ton of firepower for the end of the world.  Everyone knows it, Dr D, Kuhnz, me, everyone that is except Curtis!  And you know come the end of the world he'll want a seat too, "the jury is still out on that one" LOL.  So whether it comes or not it can't hurt & its a heck of a lot of fun to be prepared, even the CDC, that's right the CDC released a survival guide to the Zombie Apocalypse.  What do they know that we don't, makes you think hmm.  Well this is your part-time Zombie guide signing off for now, so keep vigilant my friends and as the quote below so eloquently puts it "the zombies aren't going to kill themselves" now are they!


Does this picture really need a caption?


OK, now do I have to put text under this picture!  Guys I ask you?  What a Hot Bentley, right?  Maybe this is a blatant attempt by me to get more guy readers?  Maybe I just appreciate the photographers eye for form and beauty?  Maybe this photo is the fantasy of like 99% of the guys in the world? (Not me of-course, because I'm already married to a Hot woman & I have a different super car ride in the garage, hence the 1% discrepancy) But I digress, lets face it this is the picture that should have spawned the phrase; "A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words"  Well enjoy, my small following of readers and remember there will always be more to come!!!

CRUZ'N on a Sunday afternoon.


My Favorite Car for Summer cruzing.  This is a 1949 Mercury Led-Sled.  Restomoded and chopped.  I love this car, doesn't it just make you want to get in and drive.  Some of my favorite drives are when I have nowhere in particular to go, just top down wind in your hair the sun on your face not a care in the world CRUZ'N!  That's also my favorite time to think, I think we could all use more times like that.  All of us right now just have to put down that boring work for today & just go for a drive, like the old days.  Forget about gas prices for one day and just enjoy how truly cool a car really is and if you don't own a convertible then you can come with me, I have 3 spots open first come first served.  Remember: "Vintage is never out of style".

Jet-packs what happened?


I think we got side tracked with technology, what happened to our jet-packs?  I don't want our best minds thinking up stuff like twitter. Twitter really a short version of an email or text come-on people you're satisfied with that?  That's not the high-tech gadgetry I was promised as a child, no sir.  I thought I'd be strapping on my jet-pack and heading to my next meeting.  I thought we'd all be complaining by now about how crowded the skies are and waxing-back nostalgically about what it was like to drive to work everyday in a car.  And don't you readers out there say hey Mac we've got those jet-packs on water at least, because I say NO that's not a jet-pack if it has to have a hose attached. Where am I going with that I ask you.  So jet-pack scientists get on the stick because I really wanted one of those things.  Let's try recommitting yourselves to what's important and not coming up with another type of computer.  

Well alas it isn't going to happen so I guess I'll just have to be happy with going 200 mph in a car, tough life I know.  I have issues!
