James Haefner loves cars, especially the old ones. This is just a small collection of works created by this famous American photographer in his typical hyperrealism technology. All photos are beautiful.
Wild boars are common guests on German roads. They can run into traffic, thus automobile clubs conduct crash tests to see the impact of a collision with a horde of boards. The life-size models were attached to a rolling platform. The car smashed into boars at 62 mph (80 kilometers an hour) damaging the front. The passenger cell was untouched, so if this happens in reality, people inside the car will survive.
Hondabaru is a new type of car. As you might have guessed, Hondabaru has parts from both Honda and Subaru. This car was built by a 27-year-old guy named Yannik who had a Honda Civic, but always dreamt about a Subaru WRX. As he didn’t have money to get his dream car, he bought a battered Subaru for less than $2000 Canadian and laid the Honda Civic body on the WRX frame. He spent on his Hondabaru “mutant” $5300 Canadian in total. The car still needs to be finished, but you can take a look at it now.
This is from the series ‘Only in Russia’ :)

This is Big Bud. For many years it was the largest tractor in the world. It was built by Ron Harmonn’s crew in Montana. The largest Big Bud 747 appeared in 1977 for deep plowing on a cotton farm in California. Only imagine: this tractor weighs over 45 tons! And it still runs, though some manufactures build even bigger tractors today.
It is very easy, you need to go finishing on it somewhere in Russia…

Some of these scooters are so cool they’d better be stored at the garage rather than being ridden. What is your opinion about their designs?

This 500 hp Porsche has seen some better days. At one time this car was worth some $250,000 but has now been reduced to mere junk. The accident happened in Siberia, Russia and left this very expensive sports car good for nothing more than parts.

Drivers, you should be more attentive on the road! Incidents of cars being pierced through by rods do happen once in a while.
