Say Goodbye... It's Independence Day!

Alright, aside from the reference to Bruce Springsteen, today's installment of BBtW is a bit special. I decided to forgo this week's Wreck it Wednesday and Fail Friday to bring you a 4th of July special addition. It has been a longstanding tradition to celebrate this day with fireworks and explosions, so please expect nothing less from me today.

So as my way of celebrating our country, those who served, those who help build, those who continually fight for our freedom and those who proudly call America home, I decided to have a car-themed celebration. Please click below and enjoy the show!

Funny Car explosion, but Jack Beckman get the last laugh. NHRA Explosion

The random stuff that happens while driving down the highway. Spontaneous Combustion

We gonna blow'em up really good! Stuntbusters meets a Volvo

The best thing to have ever happened to the LeBaron. This LeBaron is loaded... with Tannerite

This is a great use of a G-Wiz. Top Gear BBC Repurposes the G-Wiz

    My goal in life is to have "been there, done that" be the answer to most questions asked of me. Despite the lack of a map and compass, I am an explorer and always seeking out new challenges. People have referred to me as a "renaissance man" and to be honest- I can't think of a better description for myself. For years, I have always had a lust for the automobile and I am grateful that the staff at ChicagoNow has given me this opportunity to share my passion with you. In addition to researching the latest trends in automobile design and engineering, I am also an expert on web streaming video and enjoy spending time behind the camera as either a producer and/or photographer. My blogs are always open to comment, discussion or ridicule, so please feel free to engage with me.
