There was a caution at Turn 1 of Bristol at today’s NASCAR Truck practice. The culprit? A rabbit on the loose.
Masturbation: It’s dangerous and will likely kill you, if you’re masturbating in the comforts of the open road with a rabbit vibe while a seafood truck is careening towards you.
Low-volume British luxury car manufacturer Bristol Cars confirmed that their new performance car debuting later this year will come with a BMW engine. Which makes all the sense in the world.
With Bristol Cars preparing to re-launch just as its celebrating its 70th anniversary, Tony Crook’s locked up basement office under the famous Kensington showroom has been revealed for the first time in five decades.
Not only was the 327 the first BMW designed in Munich, but also a car that later got a red/white badge instead of the blue/white. It even ended up as the Bristol 400 on the other side of the Channel.
Bristol Cars was once a pioneering maker of some remarkable cars, back in the '40s to the '60s or so, but for decades they've been this strange, hermit-like vendor of distilled and refined snobbery, and that's it.

Bristol Cars was a small British manufacturer that was famous for being one of the most mercurial, obscure, and downright befuddling of all the small British manufacturers, which is a claim to fame.

Take one part Talbot–Lago, one part Bugatti, season with a dab of Ferrari and a dash of Gullwing Mercedes, and you end up with this Bavarian chimæra of taxative desperation: the 1955 BMW 326 LeBlond.
70 homes' waste is enough to power this eco-friendly VW Beetle for a year. Whether you'd want to drive the "Powered by your own waste!"-emblazoned car is another thing entirely, however.
If you're crazy about classic roadsters with racing heritage, Nice Price or Crack Pipe has found one that you'll go totally wacky over.
