Welcome to rollingviolation.com!

This is the "funstuff" page.  It is perpetually under construction with various pics, videos, etc.  Most will be car related, or just stuff I found funny.  Where known/possible, I will include links back to the owner's site.  If you own something on these pages and you aren't being properly credited, please contact me - you can find the link at the bottom of this page and most pages.

Play them in: Get Windows Media Player or  or  they're free.
(I'll try and add notes for "minumum" versions for clips if I know what they need.  When in doubt, download the clip and try it.  Come back here and get the player, and email me with what clip didn't play in what version so I can add notes!)

To download clips instead of watching them, right click or shift click the link.  It will probably prevent the video becoming jerky.

Exotic and Show Cars:

A couple shots of the Pontiac Rageous - a "dream car" from the early-mid 90's.
Note:  the Rageous has a V8 and rear-wheel drive.  Pontiac keeps teasing me with this stuff and then NOT building it.  Instead, we get the Aztek. <sigh>
