This topic used to be popular so I thought I might resurrect it. Just some interesting news I read.

Video: Nick Faldo vs. the Mercedes-McLaren SLR
Mercedes-Benz has entered a strange contest with English golfing legend Nick Faldo by pitting its McLaren SLR Roadster against Faldo’s golf swing. It may seem a little unfair, but the SLR does have a major advantage. While the golf ball decelerates as it flies through the air, the 626hp (427kW) supercar only gets faster and in fact can reach 200km/h in just eight seconds. Follow the jump to see whether it’s the supercar or the golf ball that makes it to the finish line first. Link

Japanese bridges to generate power from vibration
It’s not the first time the Japanese have taken the novel concept to reality. A bridge over the Arakawa River already uses the vibrations from passing cars to power some of its lights at night. The new project will expand the technology to the other four bridges on Tokyo’s Shuto Expressway. Link

Caparo to debut at 24 hours of Le Mans
Caparo is set to make its first ever appearance at the 24 hours of Le Mans this year, after signing a partnering agreement with the Barazi Epsilon team. The team will be competing in the LMP2 category and will provide Caparo with the opportunity to develop lightweight structures and components to further develop its T1 road car and future projects. Link

The race with the SLR McLaren was pretty cool. And the Japanese bridge thing is just amazing stuff. Not that I'm really surprised, Japanese technology is just amazing stuff.

I actually don't have a car of my own. I just drive my dad's van wherever I go.

But I'm going to work every summer between school and the money is going into GICs (Guaranteed Investment Certificate). So I'm guaranteed interest on the money. I'm going to put around $6000 a year in there. So by the time I finish 4 years I'll have around $18000 before the interest I earned (That's only 3 summers because the summer after I graduate I won't be getting a summer job, for obvious reasons). Plus if I do masters I'll get another 2 years of money bringing that to $30000 before interest.

With that I'm going to go buy a Certified used Mercedes or Audi. Until then, I live at home during the summer, work at the same place as my dad, and live at school during the year so I don't need a car. But it'll be worth it to have a first car being a used $30000 Benz and maybe even an AMG.
