So, when I was growing up in south Texas, I had a bud named Kevin Cooper - Coop was mad about car audio. He had the biggest, most ridiculous car stereo I had ever seen - about 8 grand worth (in 1980's dollars) - crammed into a beat-to-shit Plymouth that no car thief would ever give a second look to. It was louder than fuck, but all the speakers converted that 4-door behemoth into a 2-seater. That system had the first CD player I had ever seen. It was the shit.
Now then, THIS GUY makes Coop look like small potatoes. His system is so huge, there's no room in the van for anyone - not even a driver. Plus, it can't play music, just a single tone. And it plays it with 130,000 watts.

Anyone who knows me halfway decent knows that I am passionately in love with aircooled VW's, and have an equally passionate hatred of the 'new Beetle', and the Volkswagen corporation for ever belittling the most popular, practical, and beautiful car in the history of transportation by peeling off some stylized Jetta and calling it a Bug. Back in the day, I even had a dangerously venomous club of enthusiastic supporters, which now only exists in a fragmented form on the Internet Archive. As you can imagine, I wet my pants with glee and did a little dance when those soulless money-grubbing assmonkeys announced that they were stopping production on the new 'Beetle' - forever!
thanks to m0j0 for making my month with this news!

What could possibly be cooler than rigging your old car up to run via radio control? Rigging your old car up to run via radio control and then driving it into the ground!
UPDATE: The videos were taken down, no doubt due to bandwidth constraints - but don't fret, you can still see them here.

When Volkswagen stopped mass production of the Beetle in 1979, Mexico continued to turn them out, where they're largely used for cabs and municipal vehicles. Unfortunately, Mexico City has passed a law mandating that all taxis have 4 doors, which means no more vocho cabs.

Okay, admit it - seeing some rich dude's fancy BMW get smashed beyond recognition makes you feel pretty good, doesn't it? I mean, as long as no one was hurt.
Something tells me I'll never own a car expensive enough to be considered for this hall of shame.

Just got back from watchin Spider-Man with Sunny and my limey pal Ed. It was a great evening, lots of laffs and a great movie - the only blemish on the night was toolin around town in Ed's new Honda - it was nice, mind you, but it just didn't have that Honda Power!
