Site Update 2/6/11

Hello everyone on Super Bowl Sunday! I am excited about the Packers, Steelers game. Personally, I favorite the Steelers. Anyway, I’m afraid that I have to put off articles for a short time, at least until I finish the site editing. I know that a good looking site is key to page visitors. This shouldn’t take long, I have a good friend helping me. I planned on doing a few more articles on Lamborghinis, and a few other ideas in plan, but I will just have to postpone them for next week. I will be putting a few more pages up, finnishing the background and header, and maybe a few more suprises along the way.

Thank-you all for watching! Until next time, see you all. 😀

Nissan R390 Road car/website editing

Today, I am posting a truely historical car. The Nissan R390 GT1 Road Car, and the LM Version of the car. In 1995, than C.E.O. Marvin Travis Runyon got together with Nismo with the idea of a car that could compete, and win in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The idea went into consideration, and the Nissan R390 GT1 Race Car was introduced in June 1997.

The car first competed in the 1997 24 Hours of Le Mans, where it finished 12th. Four entries were in the 1998 24 hour race, each finished 3rd, 5th, 6th, and 10th. One entry was in the 1999 race, along with it’s successor the Nissan R391 GT1 Race Car. The R390 crashed in the fifth hour and finished 28th. The R391 finished 8th after an early engine problem. The R390 was then retired from racing.

Nissan also made two Nissan R390 GT1 Road Cars. One in blue, and one in a special white LM Edition. The LM Edition model was sent to storage in Nissan’s Zama Warehouse. The blue model was baught in 2002 by an anonymous Nissan Enthusiast. Here are the available pictures of the R390 that I have for you.

The Nissan R390 GT1 Road Car and Race Car were featured in the racing games, Gran Turismos 34, and 5. The Nissan R390 Road Car had a TwinTurbocharged Nissan V8 Engine that generated 502 horsepower, it’s topspeed was 220 mph. The LM Edition had a Nissan DOHC V12 Engine that had 671 horsepower, and it’s fastest speed is estimated at 255 mph. Only the Regular GT1 Road Car is streetlegal. Thank-you for reading, goodbye. 🙂

First Post! / Cicero BDB Maestro

Hello everyone! I’m Dan, I just recently made this blog to tell people about the cars of the world! Even though I’m 14 I have alot of driving experience, racing go-karts at my local short tracks since I was 8. I won the Ametur class at Ransomville Speedway two years in a row. I have 9 total Go-Kart wins out of about 40 starts. My number is 03 and my sponser is my Dad’s buisness, (which I’m not allowed to say on here without his permission :(). Anyway, I love cars, and want people to know about cars too, so I hope you will keep coming back to this blog to view my posts/reviews. 🙂 Oh yeah, also, you can view every car manufacture ever here. Thanks 🙂

Well, I’d like to start out with a bang! The first car that I will be showing you guys is a car made right in my hometown of Lockport, New York. The Cicero BDB Maestro was only made twice by the newer car maker Cicero. Cicero was established in early 2008 in Lockport, New York by Frank Booker. They made their first car in August of 2008, The Cicero Stealth, which had a Ford Boss 429 Engine that generated 412 horsepower. Five of these were cars between then and January 2010. The second car built was the Cicero BDB Maestro. Only built twice, one in red and one in black. The car had a Ford Modular V8 Engine that had 611 horsepower. One of the cars is owned by the Sultan of Brunei, and the other is owned by the owner Frank Booker. Here is a picture of the BDB Maestro.
