Too Fast, too furious, too much Damn Traffic
Memepunks calls metro Detroit our real world home, so when this video was passed along to us by Juggy1337, we thought it would make a great post. The details are a bit sketchy right now, but our local news affiliate is running a story about this video later today and the teaser mentioned "rich men, fast cars, and an illegal street race that costs ten thousand dollars to enter" I have no idea if any of that crap is true, but here is a Z06 Chevy Corvette tailing the new Ford GT on the freeways around Detroit. The video file is titled "Bullrun" and seems to entail a new era of "Cannonball Run" fun and hyjinx.
Listen closely to the video and you will hear the passenger mention that they are following a Ford GT driven by thechief designer of the GT.... I wonder what ole Bill Ford thinks of this?
Anyways, check out the other cars in the footage. Not often the streets of Detroit have this kinda exotic muscle rollin on it. (although we do see a lot of Vets in these parts, not many Z06 models)
The only thing sorta depressing about this video is that its American Muscle on Motor City Freeways... and the dude rolls down the window and yells... "WE NEED FUEL! PETROL!!!!"
UPDATE (10/10/06): Well the local news ran their story, and as was expected, they uncovered exactly the same things we did. Although they actually spoke to the lead designer of the GT, so I guess they got that on us (or at least they CLAIM they talked to him). Anyways, here is a bad TV rip of the original footage. I would have liked to have the original video without the commentators opinion and news directors edits. They cut out most of the other exotic cars that appear, but you can see them briefly. Sorry folks, but this is the best we can do for now.
