Turbinator II, the first car to reach 800km/h On October 2, 2018, Team Vesco's Turbinator II with Dave Spangler driving became the first wheel drive car to exceed the 500 mph barrier. Owner, designer and builder, Rick Vesco and his late brother Don began to pursue this goal 17 years ago. Tragically Don died of cancer in 2002 and never saw his dream fulfilled. In 2013 Rick began to upgrade the car with a new turbine engine, new drive train, new traction control, new brakes and new body. It was sweet success when on the first (and only) day of the World Finals event on the famous Bonneville Salt Flats, Dave Spangler powered the car through to a spectacular 503 mph run!

It’s not you. Commuting is bad for your health. My commute is like a second job, and it might be killing me. Millions of Americans commute to work. It can be a stressful journey that involves cars, trains, bicycles, and even airplanes. This video breaks down the pros and cons of long commutes -- it's by someone who actually has a painfully long one: Vox's Kimberly Mas commutes to Manhattan almost every day. She drives her car to the train station, takes the train to the subway, and finally rides the subway to the Vox office. She's had this routine for a long time and she always wondered what kind of toll it's taking on her. Her reporting shows that, while commutes may just be an unavoidable part of life for many Americans, they don't have to be all bad, all the time.
steam train hits car leaving lot in Jim Thorpe Today, Reading and Northern steam locomotive #425 was pulling back into Jim Thorpe on the 11:00 train when a car darted in front. The driver and passenger both seem to be okay, just a little shaken. The passengers on board the train reported that they didn't even feel the train hit the car, which is a testament to the sheer power behind this 1920's steam locomotive. The locomotive was going a relatively slow speed, and sent the car flying as if it was nothing, so if you think you can beat a train through a crossing, don't even try. For those concerned about 425, she suffered a few bent grab irons and had a big tire print on her rear, but she'll be fine. Let this serve as a lesson to everyone: Look. Listen. Live.
Train Crash While working on a Rock-afire Show 12 6 2015 I was working on a new Rock-afire show late Saturday night when this happened. I watched these guys get stuck on the tracks and, even with a dozen or more people trying to help them they couldn't get their car off the tracks. I was about to call 911 to stop the trains as I have done so many times before when the drunks pour out of the bars and get stuck on the tracks. But, for the second time in my life, I heard the train whistle before I could make the call. I have seen a train smash a car in this exact place before, so this was no big deal to me. Just another train wreck beside my building. I never even thought I would upload this for Rock-afire fans. Just another tidbit of my life for friends and family. But, when the phone started ringing off the hook from news desks around the world wanting this footage, I decided I wanted to share it with Rock-afire fans. This also will become part of the new show I was working on when this happened. It fits right in, amazingly enough, almost as if G-d said, "Here Aaron. Stop struggling with what to put in your new show. Just, step outside, grab your camera and shoot." So, watch the full video now, and look for a new Rock-afire show based on this in a few days.
