Burt Reynolds Unveils New ‘Bandit Edition’ Trans Am And It Sounds Incredible

Burt Reynolds Unveils New ‘Bandit Edition’ Trans Am
“The Pontiac Trans Am was originally manufactured by General Motors from 1967 to 2002 but with the folding of the Pontiac brand back in 2009, it seemed like we’d never the badass car again. However, that all changed when a company called Trans Am Depot licensed the name and badge.”

Is it just me or is this….disappointing? While I like the paint and the engine (840 horsepower!), the body style isn’t anywhere near as cool as the original. And, if you’re going to update the car, why not update the transmission, too? I mean, an automatic? Lame! (To be fair, the original was an automatic – only thing I hated about it).

I’d still take an original 1977 Bandit Trans-Am over this.

Extreme Enduro Race POV

Extreme Enduro POV Race Through the City – YouTube:

Follow along from Ben Hemingway’s point of view as he goes head-to-head with Andreas Lettenbichler for the city portion of Extreme XL de Lagares.

I love riding motorcycles but even in my wildest dreams, I couldn’t A) ride a bike like these B) ride a bike like these that fast and C) ride a bike like these that fast through the course these guys are on!

The fault lies with both. The humour comes from the rider!

Watch this video of a motorcyclist’s encounter with a car. Don’t worry – no one dies and there’s no horrible crash video.

But the reaction of the rider after what happens happens is *priceless*.

(It’s Facebook video so, if it doesn’t work, let me know and I’ll upload it)

I love their reaction to Naniamo bars (SO GOOD!) and poutine but I’ll admit to having no clue what “All Dressed Chips” are. And I’m dissapointed they didn’t get to try Ketchup Chips.

Yes…I said, Ketchup Chips. Potato chips…that are ketchup flavoured…

How to do a Whisky Tasting

Highland Park Whisky 101 – How to do a Whisky Tasting:

First thing we do, we look at the colour. We hold it up and look at the colour. Now, colour in whisky tells us….absolutely nothing…basically, all you’re doing is making sure your glass is clean…”

The Highland Park Distillery has posted this funny and very informative video on how to “taste” whisky (no “e” means it’s Scottish booze). Bad whisk(e)y tastes like gasoline but good whisk(e)y is sublime. I’m always trying to get friends to try out the good stuff. It’s a wonderful spirit.
