Huge Group of Nissan Skylines Gather for R’s Day Event in California

There aren’t a ton of Nissan Skylines traveling down North American streets, regardless of what Instagram would have you believe. Sure, there are examples from just about every generation that you can find at a car show, meet, or sometimes a local track event, but in the big picture of things, there’s but a handful in comparison to domestically sold enthusiast vehicles—and that’s part of what makes them so special.

Being that they’re still relatively rare, highly sought after, and serve as aspirational dream cars to countless enthusiasts, Jack Yi thought that bringing as many owners together as possible would be a good way to celebrate all things Skyline. So, having successfully formed R’s Day back in 2016 at Laguna Seca, he’s since managed to assemble even more participants. For 2022 the event landed at SoCal’s Streets of Willow on April 30 for the King of

Technology and high-tech stocks are suffering. The Vanguard Information Technology ETF (VGT) has dropped 24%, and the ARK Innovation ETF (ARKK), once synonymous for a strong energy market, has dropped almost 75%. However, despite our expectations for continued weakness in the markets, we see several opportunities we’re tracking.

It’s worth noting that we already own positions in all of these stocks, however, we’re looking to use the below price targets as “back up the truck” targets where we maximize our investments.

1. Interest Rates

It’s not a secret that inflation has been running high. The strong economic recovery after COVID-19 has pushed up prices. The central bank has been doing its job of raising

The Brabus 900 Crawler Is a Tubular Twin-Turbo Desert Toy with Portals

This thing might be a tad hard to wrap your mind around, but if you give it a chance, it’s likely the Brabus 900 Crawler will grow on you. It would be quite incredible, if you can imagine the scenario, showing up at King of the Hammers in this supercar-esque off-roader and watching literally everyone stare you down, as if they had seen a real-life unicorn—which it pretty much is, glorious glittery aura included.

Brabus Goes Off-Road: We Have Liftoff!

To celebrate its 45th anniversary, Brabus, a German high-end automotive manufacturer, came up with this crazy doorless, windowless “crawler.” That’s weird; we’re used to road cars and of course G63s out of Brabus, but not this. The Brabus 900 Crawler is wholly unique, and if you had to describe what just passed by camp, you’d probably have no idea what to say: super-fancy side-by-side, Jeep-ish
