NY Times’ Lawrence Ulrich is a Hater

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/21/automobiles/autoshow/NY-Camino.html?_r=2&oref=slogin&oref=slogin

 Ulrich is apparently a tree-hugging hater of cool American cars. Even worse, he’s not man enough to provide a comments section below his poorly written article that shows a complete lack knowledge of anything but pop culture, or for that matter an email address where we could send comments. I’d me more angry perhaps, but as the Times’ reaches so few people these days I think it isn’t worth the time.

Monstrous American Big Block Power to Propel New Uber Exotic!

This is the Locus, the brainchild of Canadian exotic tuner Luc Chartrand. Chartrand envisaged a car that would have no need to be envious of any car it met on the street, and came up with this piece of insanity. If these go into production, they could be this century’s McLaren F1! It’s even a three-seater with center driving. The over-the-topness of this is probably summed up best by the tire size–the rear sports ridiculous 415/30/18 Goodyears. Who knew tires that wide even existed? They are mounted on megabuck 3-piece 18×13 rims. Still, my beating heart! And best of all, the beast is propelled by good old Chevrolet muscle. Can it be put into words the awesomess that is when a lifelong Lamborghini tuner powers his ideal supercar with a 502-cubic-inch Chevy? Doubt it. Bottom line, we at Daytona Blue are big fans of Luc Chartrand, a true visionary who realizes that 550 horsepower can be had for little more than ten large when you choose Bowtie power.
