It seems like the internet has taken a back seat in my life and I’ve been doing a lot of more real-world activities (aka job + school). You can say that I’ve been marketing for Fat Cat Motorsports non-stop ever since Shaikh and I had a long talk about the direction of the shop. I can say with certainty that the future of Fat Cat Motorsports is bright. I spent one night creating a fan page for FCM last week and it’s brought some interesting results. It also helps that I have some pretty awesome contacts: (RA64Freddy, Jason’s Grain of Salt, and Ro_Ja. They were integral for the 5-day improvement in fans that Fat Cat has received on the Facebook page. It’s great to know that there are people out there who continue to support the grassroots motorsport scene.
As for the direction of the blog, I’ve decided that because I have two very interesting and factual car books, I’ll use them as inspiration to find pictures of the cars I come across and post facts about them. The name of this blog has “Vocabulary” in it, so I have to at least make sure this site is factual :D.
In either case, I’ll learn to make time for the blog and learn to balance my time between the blog, Fat Cat, and school. Btw I just turned 21 so…..YAY. I feel like I need to be responsible now =p.
I watched Transformers: Dark of the Moon last night with Ro_Ja and I was really surprised to find the Ferrari 458 Italia as part of the Autobot lineup, considering the two other movies in the past featured Autobots that used American cars as their cover. It may have had a small part in the movie, but I could not keep my eyes off that car every time it was being shown.
I was also really surprised that they showed a Maybach 62S Landaulet and a Mercedes SLS AMG in the movie. Then again, in the last movie, they featured a Decepticon Audi R8, only to be sliced in half moments later. In this film however, the SLS was a (*SPOILER ALERT* Decepticon) but actually had more screen time than the R8 of the last film. Needless to say, I think America still hates the Germans, save for the Maybach coming out of the film unharmed. Political undertones? Meh. I won’t dive into it. Then again, Italy did join the Axis powers first in WWII but turned into a co-belligerent with the Allies midway (damn Italians and their wishy-washyness (sp?) through the war up until the end.) I’ll stop there :D
I show no hatred towards the Italians (or Germans), but I found it appropriate, then, to post pics of the 458. Not 1, not 2, but 3 458s riding together. Ah you see what I did there? Transformers 3? 3 458s? Yeah, I went there.

Up until the film’s release, many people speculated that the modified and beaten up Datsun 510 would be Bumblebee’s new cover, but alas, America loves their muscle cars, and it turned out the 510 was only there for a comedic effect. Super lame.

You know, to be fair, I may as well post pics of the other cars that I mentioned.
Maybach 62S Landaulet
The car costs $1.2 million dollars. Damn, it better be a smooth ride and should come with its own chauffeur and hot model…

Oh Transformers, just another excuse to show the world the cars that we normal people cannot attain in this lifetime…
P.S. Ken Jeong (aka Mr. Chow from Hangover I/II) was HILARIOUS in the movie.
If you were to someday acquire not one, but two high-performing Toyota Supras, what ride would you choose?
I’ve been to High End Performance in Camarillo, CA and I have to say that seeing these cars in person is awesome. I’ve only been able to ride in the G37, but I NEED to ride in the Supras. My favorite would have to be the one on the left (coined Supra #2 by the fellas in the shop). These two lovely Supras are owned by none other than Richard Carino, who first grew up fixing muscle cars, but decided to move into imports after Ben, the owner of High End, influenced him.
These Supras have generated so much buzz that it’s destroyed any other competition out there, and sometimes competes against each other for the top spot.
I hear if you were to put either Supra on a dyno, the power from the cars generates so much HP and torque that it’ll spell out your name!
