Some shutterbugs will go to great lengths to get the perfect shot. Just ask Tim Scott of Fluid Images. To capture this moment at England’s Silverstone Raceway, he rigged a camera to the side of the car and triggered the shutter by remote while following behind. You’re our latest Flickr photo pool winner, Tim. Enjoy your car care prize!

Admit it. You want this BMW E30 driving simulator.

Admit it. You want this BMW E30 driving simulator.

You know you’ve thought about it. You and a bunch of friends are lapping the Nürburgring in a Ford GT on the latest rendition of Gran Turismo or Forza and you think, “This would be so much cooler if I was sitting in a racing seat with a steering wheel, shifter, and pedals in front of me.” For my friends and I, this dream has become a reality.

Got any cool car photos? Share ’em on the InMyGarage Flickr Group and you just might win a prize. Group member John Hietter was in the right place at the right time to get this shot of a city bus rolling past a Lamborghini LP640 Roadster. We love the way this Lambo creeps out of the shadows. Great capture… enjoy your car care prize!

Car Quotable – War on Speed Edition

Car Quotable – War on Speed Edition

The Internet’s been buzzing about Jeremy Clarkson’s final segment on this week’s episode of Top Gear. With the so-called “War on Speed” raging strong, this older quote from him falls right into place: “You can’t rationalize cars like these. They’re not something you buy with your head, you buy them with your heart because you love them, and who can explain love?”

There’s just so much that’s right about this shot from our Flickr Group member, Chad Lunn. Great perspective and composition, awesome contrast, and just enough black to let us know this menacing hot rod is not to be trifled with. Thanks for being part of our group, Chad. Hope you enjoy your car care prize!

Burnout at 1000 Frames Per Second

Burnout at 1000 Frames Per Second

Carfilms has unearthed this awesome dragster footage from 1969, filmed at 1000 frames per second. Watch for exhaust pulses hitting the tire smoke as the big rubber spins around like it’s on crisco. Unreal! Turn up the speakers for this one, kiddies.
