I think I liked the Prius best out of that bunch, with maybe the R8 second.

Cannonball only with 100 hp cars - they called it the musketball

I keep thinking I knew of this before but this video was only posted a few weeks ago.

A 260 Oldsmobile is the perfect motor for this event. A late 70’s early 80’s Cutlass
would be a wonderful candidate for this….

Super cool. Or HOT inside the cabin. That motor is literally a foot behind him with no protection. At least it runs and drives well. Sounds really cool too.

This is a fun story from 1963 where somehow a Pontiac Tempest had to race against Ferraris, Porsches and Corvettes at Daytona

If you look around you will find many examples of this that didn't go so well - so don't bring anything you don't mind getting dented up

The Cod (WW2 submarine) has been in Lake Erie docked in Cleveland as long as I can remember.

I didn't realize it went into dry dock last year for repairs. https://youtu.be/6cxLDHukRF4

If you follow his videos you will see it out on Lake Erie pushed by a tug on its way back to dock.

That's a lot of work for a 6-8 week repair period.

I was thinking the same - that got done pretty fast. Would have been interesting to get a time lapse video, and also to know how many people were working on it.

I heard they didn’t do any of the work themselves, they “sub-bed” it out
to a contractor. :lol:

Touring the Cod was good fun, it's a must see at least once.
