"Tires is what wins a race." That was the lesson Harry tried to teach Cole in the stock-car classic Days of Thunder. "If we can't figure a way to run so you don't melt the damn tires, we can't finish a race." How right he was: every NASCAR driver knows that having the right tires can mean the difference between a checkered flag and a DNF, but now the White House is embracing the same message to educate the public about safety and fuel efficiency.
Transportation was on President Obama's mind as he toured the Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center in McLean, VA Tuesday. In a brief, 14-minute speech, the president touched on both car-to-car communications and safety technology, as well as the need to maintain funding for the rapidly depleting Highway Trust Fund. Aside from his speech, the president also sampled one of HRC's driving simulators (shown above), which he likened to "something like Knight Rider."
Bend it like Obama. The Commander-In-Chief was just in Japan for a state visit, and his trip took him to a science expo, where he played a bit of soccer with Honda's latest ASIMO robot. The entire scene was captured on video, and showed the innovative robot as it ran, hopped and kicked a soccer ball to a bemused President Obama.
Some things are never as they seem. That's especially true when talking about the bankruptcy of General Motors. From afar, it's easy to look at GM's issue being one of decades of mismanagement, poorly built cars, and a certain, too-big-to-fail mindset. But closer to the situation, as the Detroit-based company was well and truly spiraling out of control in 2009, there was much more that the public wasn't able to notice.
Ever since the latest presidential limousine, also known as The Beast, debuted in 2009, we've wondered what's underneath that black Cadillac body. We already know a few details, like the fact it isn't a Cadillac at all, but a very heavy duty truck chassis from General Motors with a body that resembles a super-sized Caddy. Autoweek, however, has managed to extract new details from veteran Secret Service agents about the closely guarded presidential limo. Their methods, of course, are classified.
President Obama has used the same armored limo since his inauguration in 2008. Known by many as The Beast, the Presidential Limo was provided by Cadillac and earned its nickname in large part because of its massive size, which isn't surprising considering that its Caddy-shaped bodywork is said to sit atop a heavy-duty truck chassis.
