The Honda Accordion

Speedycop & The Gang of Outlaws have transformed a mundane 1998 Honda Accord V6 into the Honda Accordion! With an added 4' telescoping center section, a fully functional accordion keyboard on the hood, 32 buttons on the trunk, and custom made accordion bellows, it entertained the crowd at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Dressed in our Oktoberfest leiderhosen, with our ladies in their finest beirhaus dirndls, we played live accordion music (badly) and danced (poorly). No one seemed to mind---there were smiles and laughter all around!

Speedycop's Automotive Oddities Go Drag Racing!

Maryland International Raceway has become one of the premier drag racing venues on the east coast, and its location (a mere 40 minutes from Casa De Speedycop) makes it a prime destination for some Friday night team shenanigans. Speedycop & The Gang of Outlaws took the Upside Down Camaro, the Spirit of LeMons Cessna, and the Geo Metro Stretch limo to MIR to pit them against each other. Strangely, they all achieved almost the same MPH in the 1/4 mile, although the 1.3L Camaro/Festiva hybrid was about a second faster than the 2.2L plane, and several seconds faster than the 1.0L (3 cylinder) Geo limo. Built for racing the 24 Hours of LeMons, they are set up for maximum reliability and great fuel mileage during endurance road races---not low ET's and quick 60' times. Mostly, though, they are just built to entertain the spectators, and entertain they did. Even the track announcer said "This [upside down Camaro versus Cessna] may be the most interesting drag race in MIR history!" Labor Day weekend meant very low numbers of race cars present, and plenty of passes down the 1/4 mile for those who showed up. Both the Geo Limo and the plane were driven to and from the track as well, making for lots of dumbfounded expressions (and countless photos) from the other motorists on the road.

 
Speedycop Radio Interview

I gave a live radio interview about my latest creation, the Upside Down Camaro race car, on South African National Radio during a primetime (9 a.m.) morning show Saturday, August 17, 2013. It was 3 a.m.my time, so I was a bit groggy, but it went well. Have a listen!

Behind the Upside Down Camaro Race Car

Watch the story of how the Upside Down Camaro race car came to be, and have a few laughs along the way! For the record, we finished 98th out of 139 cars, beating 40 proper race cars, and one Rolls Royce along the way. Our fast laps, unfortunately, failed to record on our Go Pro, but they were roughly 40 seconds/lap faster than the slowest car in the race.


 
Upside Down Race Car On The Track

My latest creation, the upside-down Camaro race car, has finally hit the track here at New Jersey Motorsports Park! Check out the video of the much-anticipated unveiling of this top secret project, and see it in action:
