What A Race At Martinsville

If you watched last Sundays Nascar race at Martinsville, you were at the edge of your seat for the entire race. The race at Martinsville is how the Bristol used to be before they decided to change the track.

There was a ton of action during the entire race and the bump and run was alive and well. Martin Truex Jr. had a scary moment when his throttle hung going down the backstretch as he crashed into Kasey Kahne so hard, Truex’s car burst into a ball of fire before the two of them slammed into the wall.Truex immediately ran from his car to see if Kasey was ok.The two of them luckly ended up walking away from that crash.

Then with 18 to go, Dale Earnhardt Jr. bumped Kyle Bush up the hill and made the pass for the lead. He lead all the way until there was four to go when a hard charging Kevin Harvick made that pass for the lead going into the turn as Earnhardt’s car got loose in the corner. Harvick crossed the finish line first taking home the victory and a Martinsville grandfather clock!

During a post race interview Dale Jr. said “I bumped Kyle and got him loose for the lead, I didn’t want to do the same thing to Harvick and be the bad guy for the day.

SPRINGS HERE! April Fools! Oh Nature, You Got Me Again…

Snowy Rx8
......uh oh... QUICK! Check calendar!
AHHHHHH!!! Nature, You Little Rascal!

It was March 31st. The grass was green, the street sweepers were out, birds were chirping, cars were clean, jackets were off, and the snowblower was put away for the season. I then awoke on the morning of April 1st. I stood up, and peered out the window like a zombie. Just as my eyes began to focus, Nature screamed in my face “APRIL FOOOOOOLS! It’s still winter! L0Lzz!” Ugh. I hate being Punk’d by Nature.

The Original BIGFOOT Monster Truck

The original BIGFOOT Monster Truck, is by far my favorite monster truck of all time. The creation of BIGFOOT began as a brand new 1974 F250 Ford Pickup that was purchased by Bob Chandler and his wife so that they would have a vehicle with more cargo room for camping and have the ability to go off road.

While becoming frustrated with the lack of parts and services for four wheel drive trucks in his area,  Bob Chandler teamed up with Jim Kramer and began modifying his Ford F250. This partnership became Midwest Four Wheel Drive. Chandler used the truck to deliver parts from the shop. (more…)

Please: Don’t Part Out Your Rare Unique or Desirable Car.

Rare 1962/63 Nova Convertible Shell

Today I have a gripe that I would like to discuss with you all. The topic really irks me on some cars and I feel it needs to be addressed because I see it too frequently. Maybe I need to stop getting emotionally attached to rolling heaps of metal. I don’t know, just peruse this and let me know your thoughts on the subject, because I may be the crazy one. This gripe of mine is known as “parting-out” your car. (more…)

In A World Of Exotics Yellow Has A Place Of Its Own.

In a world of exotics, yellow has a place of its own. To me nothing screams “I’m here” like a bright yellow exotic sports car. If I were ever in a position to buy an exotic, it would without a doubt, have to be yellow.

Why yellow you ask? I love yellow because it’s different, it’s loud, it’s a change in the opposite direction from red, and if your lucky enough to get invited to a prestigious car show, there’s often a class for yellow car entries. To me there’s nothing cooler than observing an entire line of yellow Ferraris, Porches or Lamborghini’s on display. Most of these cars tend to wear it well. (more…)

Now you are probably thinking to yourself “yes, that was quite wonderful for my eyes, ears, and soul, but I still want more.” (more…)
