Give a Lexus LFA to an auto journalist and there's going to be an attempt to drift it. Give that same LFA to the gents at Blendtec and they're likely to see if it, or at least a piece of it, will blend. Then turn that LFA over to Tony Hawk to use for his birthday and he will, naturally, line the thing up outside of his office and see if he can ollie it.

Sure, he had the help of a generous ramp, but we can't blame him. The LFA is $375,000 of sensitive parts that wouldn't react well, nor inexpensively, to flying skateboard trucks. Scroll down to see the 44-year-old Hawk do what he does best.

        Tony Hawk (or almost any somewhat serious skater) could've done a hardflip or kickflip late shuvit... I would've liked to see something with some style; a mute grab or something.

      Thanks for another great article TMZ. When will we hear about what Kim Kardashian will be driving this year or whether or not Kristen Stewart can drive a manual trans?

      I don't care if it is proper car news or not because I got to see the LFA. It was worth the 31 seconds to see it in that beautiful yellow!

      Let's see him jump his SRT Jeep. That would be cooler in every way.

        He does an ollie over, there was no grab. This is the problem for using the same name for two slightly different things.
