Forget Ken Block, You Need to See This: Ken Box

Phillip Roberts 10. December 2014 Entertainment, Magazine, Videos & Movie Reviews No Comments

Every time someone comes out with a picture, article, film or even a short video there are people that make fun of it. This time Ken Block got the roasting treatment in the form of Ken Box. More specifically a guy that looks a bit like Ali G sits in a tiny Crazy Cart made by Razor with card board panels reminiscent of Ken’s past cars: Ford Fiesta and a Subaru Impreza.

The video starts and continues like a classic Ken Block performance except there is no burning rubber, screaming horses or burning fuel. The Razor Cart is a toy, one would say, with an electric motor and batteries good for 40 minutes (which is better than BMW ActiveE in terms of running time). The cart has a special “Drift Bar” which prevents the rear wheels from going straight. The turning circle is like a shopping basket with 360 degrees.

Getting back to our video, Ken Box is driving an Impresa by HooIsKen with Mister advertising. We sense the obvious irony at once. All this combined with a Poker-face of Ali makes up a very entertaining video. See what you think…

About Phillip Roberts

As a little boy my Dad always told me stories about the glorious days of automotive pioneering and days when classics were common. This has influenced me in such an effect I have become a helpless petrol-head...

…my driving license was still on it's way when I had bought my first petrol-smelling Italian stallion... No, it wasn't a Ferrari... It was Fiat Regata, twin choke Weber 1.5 in neat condition with bad attitude. It wasn't in any way quick by today's standards nor was it a good handler. More like an SUV actually. It was so high that my girlfriend at the time, (a little taller than a bucket,) almost needed a ladder to get into it. However, it was a good car till the first winter came and I wrecked it.

My next car was a BMW E30 1987 2.4d. It is still my all-time favorite. It just had a black metallic paint job done when I bought it and shiny chrome bumpers. As Steel Panther would say say, "that car was bitchin'." I had nice Alpina alloys that I kept getting nicked for. Apparently they were not marked in my documents so each time the police caught me I got a fine.

After about a dozen fines in 3 months I said `sod it` and had BMW amend my documents. This one wasn't really quick off the mark but once it was up to speed you could throw it into any corner and it would come out still alive and pointing the right way. I sold it eventually because I didn't have the time to get it back to original condition and I later found out that the guy I sold it to wrecked it couple of months after. What a shame.

I also had a BMW E46. I liked the look of it but it was useless. It had so many problems one day I wished someone would run into me so I could get rid of it and get some money back. Guess what... a week later a Spanish fellow in a borrowed company Skoda ran up the boot and parked on my back seat. My girlfriend got a panic attack and became so furious she would have beaten him up if I`d let her. However, I had successfully gotten rid of the car.

So this is the story of my beginnings. There are two things that I love other than music and my family. Writing and cars. Why not combine them? I figured there may be more people like me and so I wanted to participate in this amazing opportunity for everyone to share their knowledge, experience and passion, and build something unique while doing it.
