Formula Drift Champion Chris Forsberg takes us on a tour of garages around the country, from professional outfits to grassroots backyard garages.
In this episode of Garage Tours, we visit Coupe King in Long Beach, California. Coupe King is owned and operated by Peter and Erik “Slick” Sliskovich, a father and son team. It started as a hobby in the early 80s, but has since evolved into a highly recognized full-service BMW restoration and parts business. Slick shares their enormous collection of BMWs including a pair of rare orange 1971 ultralight 3.0 CSL. In the garage we see just how busy this shop is with an incredible number of full restorations in progress. Then it’s time to get behind the wheel as Forsberg takes a 1974 3.0 CS with 260 HP to the streets of Long Beach.
When it comes to wingsuit flights, there is already very little room for error. When that wingsuit flight just so happens to cut right through a 6-foot crevice between two rocks in the middle of the Alps, that margin is reduced to zero. Just check out this video of Uli Emanuele's harrowing flight (which he allegedly scouted for 3 years) and you'll see what we mean. Needless to say, this might well be the most technical—and dangerous—wingsuite stunt ever.
The Eyes In The Sky Visuals crew took almost two whole years to film this footage, and was it well worth it! Filmed on the East Coast of Australia, it features some of the most well-known and hidden spots with loads of pro surfers like Ozzy Wright, Craig Anderson, Dion Agius, and more. And while it's no Stu Gibson footage, it definitely is incredibly stunning!
With the age of the Bugatti Veyron now in its waning years, Koenigsegg's One:1 has officially replaced it as the world's wildest hypercar, and this footage of it tearing up the Goodwood Hill Climb offers all the proof you need. This thing makes no apologies and asks no quarter, but then again, with 1,360-horsepower under the hood, it doesn't have to.
Meet Gray, Piper, and Cale, the furry, four-legged members of the Snowmass Ski Patrol. Handled by Nathan Garfield, Dan Berg and Susan “Mouse” Carollo, these avalanche rescue dogs are not brave and intelligent, but they always seem to be wearing a smile, whether they’re putting up boundary ropes or embarking on dangerous search and rescue missions. If you're a dog person, ski bum, or simply a human with a beating heart, this one is for you.
Though widely known for his ridiculous stunts and juvenile pranks, Johnny Knoxville has made the majority of his millions as a producer of some pretty acclaimed films over the last half decade or so, and Being Evel looks like it could be his best yet. An inside look at America's foremost stuntman, Evel Knievel—who modern spectacle masters like Red Bull and Nitro Circus borrow from with reverent abandon—this one, following a Sundance appearance earlier this year, is set for a theatrical release next month, so make sure to check it out.
Let's cut straight to the chase: If you want to hear NJ BMX legend-to-be Scotty Cranmer discuss the origins of his BMX career, then tune in for the first 2 and a half minutes of this one. If you just want to see hime shred his face off, however, then skip right to the 3-minute mark, where the hammers start flying fast and loose. Whatever you choose, however, make sure to tune in for that ender, which is unsurprisingly insane.
We already brought you a healthy dose of New Zealand rad this week, but in case you missed it or simply itching for more, check out The Land of the Long White Cloud, which chronicles a week-long hiking trip deep into the Aspiring National Park. Needless to say, this one will make you want to get out and have an adventure this holiday weekend.
