Today's photo comes from memories83's ride page. I like the symmetry of the double-yellow, and the way that the drab and slightly out-of-focus brick buildings make this beautiful Supra pop.

And you can watch the Guinness World Record brealing run happen all very calmly on video after the jump!

This is what the world needs: more mean-looking wagons! The Advanced Tourer will be a little smaller than a Legacy, and powered by an electric-hybrid 1.6 turbocharged boxer. The bad news is that it'll get a CVT, though with any luck, Subaru will have worked the bugs out by the time it goes to production. But will it go to production? The buzz is, yes.

How awesome is this Triton's burnout on blades? Video below the jump, and the action starts at around 1:30.

It’s one of the most famous automotive photos on the internet. It’s that little maroon Volkswagen Jetta with the 3,000 lbs. of wood on the roof and a rear suspension that’s in utter trauma. For years people have been claiming that this photo was indeed a fake, but according to the owner, not only was it real, but he was able to drive his ailing Jetta home. Thankfully we live in a world where myths are not only proven, but put to rest thanks to our favorite Mythbusters, Jamie Heineman and Adam Savage. In my opinion the following Mythbusters segment proves two things. First, that the Volkswagen Jetta is one hell of an automobile and two, Jamie Heineman and Adam Savage still have one of the coolest jobs ever created for television.

Subaru just uploaded a new video of the BRZ. Check it out after the jump.

Ok, now for my mini rant: this thing looks almost exactly like the Toyota/Scion version. And now it turns out it has the same drivetrain--same hp and torque numbers and everything. Now, don't get me wrong--I'm always glad to see affordable RWD cars hit the market. But seriously, what's the point of having a Subaru version if the only things different are a few minor aesthetic details (that will be lost on most non-enthusiasts) and the emblem? I don't get it.

It seems like something that shouldn't be appealing, but somehow I just can't not want it. Maybe it's because it comes with an absolutely immaculate Pinto wagon attached! See the listing for it at Classic Cars of Sarasota, via Craigslist.

The owner of this retired Viper GTS-R race car had a restoration shop in Germany build it as a tribute to the Hasseroder Viper GTS-R that won the 24 Hours of Nürburgring in 1999. And he had them make it street legal while they were at it! Street-legal mods included changing out the brakes, adding an e-brake, deleting the rear diffuser, tweaking the steering geometry and adding street tires. It also got an extensive electronics overhaul so it could look race-car authentic without sacrificing too many creature comforts. The end result looks pretty convincing! How about you: what historic race car would you choose to have converted to street-legal so you could drive it whenever you wanted? More pics below the jump, via Carscoop.
