Watch A 60HP Ford Fiesta Pulls Off The Cheap Version Of Gymkhana

Videos like Ken Block’s famous Gymkhana series never fail to set boy racers’ heart fluttering. It even aspired some to do the same, but there’s just one problem: money. It is true that some may have the talent necessary to pull a Gymkhana off (even with R/C car, if I may add), but their abilities to do so is, like I said, only limited by the money they have. Nobody can’t afford to Hoon like Ken Block without the dough, or so we thought. As it turns out, you don’t need monster (pun intended) budget to pull a smooth Gymkhana as proven by Etienne Guerra.

Here’s How You Can Get A Moving Car Simulating Baby Cot By Ford

Let me see. This news came up on April 6, so the MAX Motor Dreams Baby Cot you see here is not an April Fools prank. The thing is, it is not a creation of some startup nor is it a product of a baby care company. It is in fact a product by Ford. Yes. An automaker. Apparently, some new parents resort to driving the baby in attempt to coax them to sleep and hence, Ford thought it will be nice to have a cot that simulates a moving car, complete with motion, engine noise and even passing street lighting, so parents get baby off to sleep at night without actually going on drive. To be honest, this has to be the first time I am hearing this theory, but hey, who am I to doubt this, right? Continue reading Here’s How You Can Get A Moving Car Simulating Baby Cot By Ford
