Well, ridiculous for anyone not wearing Vneck Tshirts.

Based on the International MXT. Red Bull has a handful of them across the country that are kitted out with a popup roof and speakers to provide audio for all sorts of different events. A good friend of mine drives the one down here in Orlando, it's a pretty wild setup.

Spoke with the guy that drives it. He did say it's an International MXT. He pretended that he knew what he was talking about... he said he built it, but couldn't tell me the size of the tires. He also said it has a V12 Diesel in it. Quick research on the interwebs says the biggest engine was a V8 diesel.

Cars and Coffee

Had a little gatherin at C&C this morning. I still can't believe they had that P1 out with the salty roads. The P1 was pretty dirty for a million dollar car.

Modern cars don't rust like old ones. I would have no problem DDing any modern super car in the salt.
