Here is another blast from the past for you, it’s a classic car commercial featuring the iconic Volkswagen Beetle. In the ad the presenter actually drives the bug into a lake to prove how well built the car is and to show that it floats, they certainly don’t make commercials like this anymore.

The ultimate driving simulator that allows you to race your own car

Posted: 09 Mar 2011 08:14 AM PST

An Australian company by the name of Tag systems has created a unique driving simulator which can be played using your very own car. The company set up the simulator in Jay Leno’s Garage, rigged up his Corvette to the system and let him it for a spin through different scenarios.

With this new driving simulator you can now take your car to a racetrack, drive it flat out through city streets and even race it against your friends ride.

The simulator works by strapping your car onto a special rolling road, an exhaust extractor is positioned behind your car and a massive cooling fan is blasted at you from the front.

Watch the video below which shows Jay Leno trying out this new advanced driving simulator.

Now as cool as this seems I am sure this is going to burn away your fuel pretty quickly but after seeing how much fun Jay Leno had in the simulator maybe it is worth it.
What do you think?
