I wanted to break the pogo stick world record when I was kid. I quit after about ten minutes. This guy was serious about breaking the world record for donuts. I guess the previous record was 116 but he managed 238 in his Lotus 7 replica. I think I'd puke. Video after the jump! Via Jalopnik

Sometimes a car commercial comes along that just makes you smile. Who knows, maybe it hits that little nerve inside your head that reverts you back into a 4-year old, or maybe it just has the ability to bring your mood back to normal after a crappy day. Whatever the reason, this commercial for the Peugeot 207 does just that by giving us a little bit of Disney’s “Cars”, a great tune and some stellar CGI. Sure the commercial is a few years old, but in my book that doesn’t make it any less entertaining… click through and enjoy.

That's not very nice! But you gotta admit, that Volvo is pretty tough.

I got to go camping in the Mazda 5 after all! I took an impromptu roadtrip into Eastern Washington to see the Balloon Rally in Prosser, and camped in a farmer's field a ways from the event (you can see the balloons rising in the background, below the jump). Along the way, we spotted these cool hot rods at a truck stop on their way to a show, one with an Olds Rocket motor, the other packing a supercharged small-block topped with three Strombergs. Funny thing was, we saw them again the next day, driving on the highway on their way home. I recognized them by the motors.

How aboout you? What did you do this weekend?

I've seen some serious paint jobs in my day, but this one was way outta control. The owner and artist, Earl Shepard, hand painted this piece simply because it needed to be done. And the work is awesome and inspiring. He not only spent weeks and months painting, but had a tremendous time mixing and working the colors to match and transition. If you take a brief moment to think about the work that went into it, then you'll realize it's truly an amazing peice. Way to go, Earl. Want to see more? Check out his site...

Mike Miller's 320i project is a great example of how peeling back a single layer can make you realize you have to do the whole thing. Removing a fender to address a tiny spot of rust, he discovered the had his rust-repair work cut out for him: in a sequence heartbreakingly familiar to those of us who love 70s and 80s unibodies, the cancer-prone bimmer was turning into Swiss cheese from the inside out. Thus Mike embarked on an epic restoration 20 years in the making, and now the 320i is perfectly finished, from its precisely grafted-in shock towers to its glowing final coat of original BMW polyurethane enamel, stockpiled in the 80's. The driveline is a little hopped up too! See full details on the build at Hemmings.

We've had some awesome Festivas on CarDomain over the years. Remember this one? Well, Dan converted his Festiva into a mini pickup. The little runabout has over 300,000 miles and gets 44mpg. And here it is hauling a Chevy 350. Be sure to check out his ride page!
