A Tour of Omix-ADA’s Historic Jeep Collection

DSCN9029_lzn

In the modest town of Suwanee, Georgia, there lies a remarkable collection of rare, unique, and otherwise significant Jeeps of all types and decades under a single roof. 27 Jeeps – all in full working order – reside at Omix-ADA’s headquarters and have just recently become accessible to the public through complimentary guided tours.

They were kind enough to invite me to Suwanee to see this collection of theirs firsthand. I live within driving distance of this wondrous place, so I happily accepted.

Omix-ADA is a name that many Jeep enthusiasts will likely recognize as one of the world’s largest independent manufacturer and wholesaler companies that specialize in all things Jeep. To those who aren’t familiar… well, there you go. These guys live and breathe Jeep and this new collection of theirs really shows just how passionate they are about preserving them.

This collection is not the biggest or the shiniest around, but if anything that only adds to how awesome it is for enthusiasts like you and I. Click past the jump and I’ll show you what I mean. There’s a lot here so get comfortable and enjoy this virtual tour of some of the best from this collection (note: not everything will be shown).

If you saw the news today, you know that Modern Muscle Design (MMD) and Chip Foose unveiled a one-off 2015 Ford Mustang with unique styling and some awesome power to back up the good looks.

Hooniverse Reviews: Project CARS

234630_2015-05-14_00079

Crowd funding is perhaps the most common and easiest way to launch a new product or business these days. It seems like everyone is doing it and the video game industry has fully embraced it as well. So it’s nothing new. At all. But what happens when a game developer turns to crowd funding but then makes their backers a part of their development team?

What happens is Project CARS, a several-year-long labor of love from British developer Slightly Mad Studios and their backers. Project CARS [Community Assisted Racing Simulator] is a racing game that manages to be truly unique in a world where Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo reign king. It’s packed with features, armed with jaw-dropping visuals, and boasts an immersive racing experience that you really can’t top unless you do the real thing.

Project CARS checks many of the right boxes on a gamer’s list of what they expect from a racing simulator because there were true racing sim fans behind the scenes making sure that it did. It’s a different take on video game development that returned some very impressive results. All of that makes this one of the best racing games I’ve ever experienced.
