Okay, I'm being lazy and don't want to go take a picture of it. This is from the website, and it's the Nissan GT-R. (Only way he'll get one.) If you click on the link, you can learn ALL about it. Because, I'm sure, most of you want to know. ;)
Now, first and foremost, Brian is a car guy. He loves working on cars, tearing them apart building them up, spending a whole Christmas installing an engine (*grumble*), customizing, etc. etc. And right now, we don't really have the place, the extra dough, or the need for a "spare car." So, this is his current outlet. You can customize this car through various means, tires, shocks, batteries, etc. It's actually pretty cool. The little bastard can reach about 35-40 mph, I think. He was giggling so hard, I couldn't tell what he was saying.
Anywho, along with any expensive hobby, there comes a need to show it off. Here in El Paso, there's a local hobby shop, Hal's Hobby Warehouse, that has two tracks for these cars. A dirt one, and a "street" one. The dirt one's way more fun to watch. So, this past Saturday, we went and watched a race.

AND THEY'RE OFF. Crashing into each other, of course. The people on the track are not driving the cars, but they pick them up when the cars flip over and get stuck.
It's seriously amusing to watch these little cars going around this track. What's even more funny are the super serious people racing them. They'll freak out if you don't flip their car over fast enough.
If I can only remember to bring sunscreen...
