Orange County Choppers or other wise known as OCC is a manufacturer of custom motorcycles in Orange County, New York. It was founded in 1999 by Paul Teutul Sr and his son Paul Teutul Jr. As a custom motorcycle manufacturer, they have found fame and fortune after Discovery Channel aired them in American Chopper, a reality TV series showing the father and son building custom made motorcycles for their customers. Viewers loved the constant bickering of the father and son as well as the crew and they have made some very unique but functional motorcycles that could almost be considered works of art.
Couture looks as relaxed as can be, smiling in the cage. Toney a bit more tense, pacing back and forth. He’s got ankle wraps on both feet. The two touch gloves before the opening bell.
Round 1: Toney’s on the ground in 15 seconds. Couture straight to mount. He usually prefers side control. The crowd chants “UFC! UFC!” Couture lands hard strikes from the top. Toney is so wide that Couture has a tough time staying on top, but he takes him to the cage. Still in full mount. Toney’s survived midway through. Couture goes to the arm triangle. Toney survives that too. Couture is still on top. It’s one-sided but Toney survives. Couture goes back to the arm triangle. This time he advances position and locks it in, and Toney taps out.
Winner: Randy Couture via arm triangle choke, Rd. 1
Toney goes over to shake Couture’s hand after the fight.

Various sources are reporting today that the record BMW M3 GTS Nurburgring lap time has been set to 7 minutes and 48 seconds. The BMW M3 GTS Nurburgring lap time has not been officially confirmed by the German carmaker, but if it’s real, it means the GTS is the fastest BMW production model to ever run around the Nurburgring. The time is two seconds faster that the 2003 BMW M3 CSL.
The BMW M3 GTS is powered by a 4,361 cc V8 engine that develops 444 hp at 8,300 rpm and 440 Nm of torque at 3,750 rpm. This means that a standard M3 is 30 hp short of BMW M3 GTS’s output. The official performance figures say the M3 GTS needs only 4.3 seconds to reach 60 mph and that it has a top speed of 190 mph.
Having a firmed up chassis, weighing 150 lbs. less than the M3, and costing $120,000 without taxes, the hope was that the BMW M3 GTS would fare better on the Ring. It did do fairly well in Hockenheim, where its 1m 12.5s time even beat the Ferrari F430.
Megan Fox will replace model Lara Stone as the face of Giorgio Armani’s cosmetics. The 24-year-old star of Transformers already models for Armani in its jeans advertisements. “Mr. Armani is an iconic visionary for all things fashion. I’m honored to be associated with him and this campaign,” Fox said in a recent interview. She will appear in the make-up ads starting in October. “Megan embodies the spirit of the women of today. …Her beautiful features reveal femininity, sensuality, and strength,” Armani said of his choice.
Caught this movie this weekend and I loved it. And if you were a fan of the latest “Rambo”, then you will be a fan of this movie as well. It is a total guy movie with lots and LOTS of action and little story, just enough story so that you didn’t feel it lacked any. So in short if you have not watched this yet go now.
“The Expendables” is a hard-hitting action/thriller about a group of mercenaries hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. Once the mission begins, the men realize things aren’t quite as they appear, finding themselves caught in a dangerous web of deceit and betrayal. With their mission thwarted and an innocent life in danger, the men struggle with an even tougher challenge – one that threatens to destroy this band of brothers.
Director: Sylvester Stallone – Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Randy Couture
PS: I took the wife and she loved it too.
The Continental GT is not a sports car. Nor is the Continental Supersports. Nevertheless, both Bentleys do things that only sports cars can do, and the Supersports does some of them more quickly – like 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds. The difference is in how they do it. In our review of the GTC Speed, we wrote that it achieves these feats by taking the goddess of physics hostage, forcing her to obey. Bentley should be commended for engineering a 5,182-pound beast to perform such feats at all, but it remains an act of coercion.
