Municipal Hoonage: 2007 Elgin Pelican P

The mighty Mike Austin, former of MPH as well as ours truly, now spends his time at the head of the class, long-lead testing such automotive n00bs as the Jaguar XF and Mitsubishi Evo X. Of course the key benefit to such a gig is getting on the horn to a supplier of municipal maintenance vehicles and barking something… » 11/15/07 10:45am 11/15/07 10:45am

This Shit is Genius, They Are Indy, Etc.

So you know, Austin's all about the ladies forming a line to his left for makeouts and dudes forming a line to his right for hi-fives.

One of the big events on Indy Weekend is the IPL 500 Festival Parade, and yeah, we were there. Actually we weren't just there we were in the parade.

But we're… » 5/27/06 8:50pm 5/27/06 8:50pm

I Am Indy: Drive-Time For Us; Contest For You


Austin and I have our bags packed full of pork rinds, coors light and our good friend Jack — well, that's a lie — we actually finished our good friend Jack well before we packed up. But we'll bring Jack with us though, kind of like our own little mascot / friend / trainer to keep us company for the trip. It'll be … » 5/26/06 12:59pm 5/26/06 12:59pm

I Am Indy: Wert and Austin Cover Indy; Indy Runs In Terror


Have we got a treat for you. We're sending Mike Austin, of Davey-coverin' fame — and our very own Ray Wert on a mini Cannonball Run to Indy and back to cover the grandaddy of automotive whiplash, the Indy 500. Here's the better news — Mike's conned the General into dropping off a sweet ride for the trip — the… » 5/26/06 8:00am 5/26/06 8:00am
