    The fail of the water rocket pack man makes me laugh so hard.

    Why doesn't Jim Clark have a Scottish or even Northern (to my ears) accent?

    This weird hippie British guy wants to collect one 911 from every year of its production. He's just missing a 1972 Porsche.

    Sounds expensive.

    I guess you can ask Matra about the intricacies of the Scottish accent.

    I'm watching it now- it does sound British, just not Scottish.

    By the way- thank you for sharing, I always want to learn more about the earlier days of motorsports.

    it is there but too subtle for many not exposed to the wide varieties of accent we have in Scotland
    More so with Clark as he was educated in private boarding schools around Edinburgh at a time when speaking "proper" was considered desireable. So much of a local accent becomes hidden by the enforced "london english" of 'received pronunciation' ([ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Received_Pronunciation"]see[/ame]) the BBC were so poroud of back then.

    Love how the motor press just "discovered" him... everyone into early 911s knows and appreciates his passion. Magnus & his wife bought the LA warehouse in a sketchy area a long time ago and built a successful clothing business there, so he's doing alright financially. Appearances aside he's an unassuming, cool guy and admits his dedication to one model is obsessive. But good on him... people piss greater sums away on less useful hobbies.

    With the video, he sorta tapped another business opportunity, selling the Urban Outlaw brand. Not my thing, but I do like him.
    Some great cars in that fleet!

    Thanks for posting about it- I noticed that his sister has the iconic Scottish accent. I thought that education might have something to do with it.

    He seems like a nice guy, and his collection is freaking awesome. But the way he speaks he sounds like he's stoned all the time.

    I wish the video talked more about his cars and less about his properties and what he wanted to do with it.

    Excellent professionalism and racing guys...

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7q1PYYlUArU&feature=plcp"]Clint Bowyer And Jeff Gordon Fight! Crew Fight in Garage! FULL - YouTube[/ame]

    When the racing involves fistfights too!

    I've seen drivers fight but I've never seen full on pit crews dueling it out with each other.

    Real smooth NASCAR.

    On a side note, I have no idea about the background of the two drivers.

    This is the most ridiculous car commercial I've seen yet.

    It features the new Mercedes A class chasing a Mercedes 300SL transporter with a noodle stand in the back.

    And it's in anime form.

    I seriously don't understand why Mercedes is spending so much money promoting its cheapest car. I'm not even sure if it's the volume seller for Mercedes.

    Its probably a volume seller for them in everywhere but here(since they are not selling it here, not in the hatch form at least...). They did say it is the best pre-order model ever in their history...

    I am sure it'll sell well in Asia too...its a Benz that more people can afford...

    The A45 AMG is pretty interesting also...
