This Is A Mandatory Item For Every Car Enthusiast


Bolt drawer, bolt bucket, or junk drawer.  No matter what you call it, it is absolutely imperative that every automotive enthusiast has one of these within reach.  If you don’t, you are basically setting yourself up for heartache & pain.  This particular drawer in my tool box has saved me approximately 470 gallons of gas, several hospital trips, 1 million hours of work, and unimaginable amounts of cash.  Over the last 15 years, it has been cleaned and organized many times, but in the end it always ends up looking like this.  Though I can’t confirm whether it is a good or a bad thing, it is quite possibly the most used drawer in my tool box.   » Continue reading more of this post…

Kyle Busch Win’s In Kentucky

When you’re good you’re good. Kyle Busch won the Camping World Truck series in Kentucky on Thursday night and also won the inaugural Sprint Cup Race at Kentucky Speedway on Saturday.

For it’s first Sprint Cup race, the Quaker State 400 was a SOLD OUT show! It was so packed with race fans  reports estimated that possibly around 10,000-20,000 fans may not have been able to make it to the event due to traffic jams anywhere from 3-5 hours long on the interstate. Taking a look at the grandstand on TV I’m not sure where they would even have fit that many more race fans.

It’s seems as though some of the teams that typically run well week after week had trouble setting the car up for this track. Dale Earnhardt Jr. seemed to be having a tough time throughout much of the day. Also teammate Mark Martin wasn’t much of a threat either throughout the day.

However David Reutimann ran very well, so well in fact, that if he had a few laps left he may have well won the darn thing.

Van’s Rule!

I grew up in the 70′s and 80′s so I’ve always had a thing for vans. Here’s a pretty cool van burnout that I found on YouTube for our Friday video post. It kind of has a “Who’s The Boss” theme going on.

The 1A Blog Friday Video Wrap-Up

Tony – “Don’t forget your camper this holiday weekend!”

Jeremy – “I realize that no car video this week will live up to the video of the Seagull stealing the gopro video camera, but I do have some great ones for you! Now, if 1 Supra launching is a great time, then three Supra launches are thrice as good. AmIRite?”

Nascar Celebrates The 4th Of July In Daytona

This weeks Nascar race has to be one of the coolest races of the season. I really have to hop on a plane and catch one of these 4th of July night races at Daytona one of these days.

This is Saturday night racing at its best. With 2 1/2 miles of high speed highway and 31 degrees of banking, watching Daytona under that stars is like watching your local short track on steroids.

From the electricity of the fans in the grandstand to the drivers behind the wheel, sparks are going to fly and tempers will flare,  who will have the best dance partner in this new two car tango that Nascar has gotten these guys into?

I couldn’t even imagine driving 200MPH pushing the guy in front of you, plus having to communicate with your own spotter and switching to the spotter of the guy that your pushing. The cockpits of the Daytona cars will have dials on the roll cage so that these guys can turn the switch and pick up the other teams spotter for the car that they are pushing.

Some teams go with 2 or 4 different frequencies that they can tap into. Last year we saw a couple of cars with about 15 different spotter frequencies that they could dial up. We also we heard one driver say “Who am I talking to?” lol like a 200 MPH phone call there’s not much time for chatting.

Will Trevor Bayne work with Jeff Gordon once again? Will Dale Earnhardt Jr. finally win and break his losing streak at a track that he seems to run so well at?

Stay tuned because this is a race that you’re not going to want to miss!

Here’s  a clip from last years Coke Zero 400

You Want To See The Candy Apple Red Delorean?

 

A few months ago, we talked about a Blue Painted Delorean that had a colorful, yet unconfirmed history with it.  With some of our DMC expert readers chiming in on the topic, along with the owner himself, the story evolved into a far more legitimate sounding tale.  Today I am bringing to you a sweet candy colored, DMC-flavored first hand confirmation to one of these legends.  » Continue reading more of this post…

This Road Runner Took Full Advantage Of The 1970′s

In the beginning of the 1970′s muscle cars were it. The more cubic inches you had, the more you could brag.  Then the big bad catalytic converter jumped into the car scene, and ruined everybody’s fun. Way to go smog. By the time the late 1970′s came around, the best you could hope for in a new car was a manual transmission, some groovy disco stripes, and t-tops to let your hair breath.  In short, you hoped for this Road Runner.

Flat out, I have no idea what year this Road Runner is, but I’m quite sure its between 1976-80.  The front bumper is throwing me off because it has the parking lights in it.  I’m not sure if that was a specific year thing or a Road Runner thing.  No matter what year it is, this car is the bees knees.  Just look at it for god sakes!  360 V8, manual transmission, t-tops, side pipes, chrome Cragars, window vents, a hood scoop, and those frickin stripes!  Oh god, I gotta have those stripes!  If cool options were land mass, this Road Runner would be the Louisiana Purchase.  I’m serious.  I would put a comb in my back pocket, bury my foot into the cutpile carpet, and rock this thing hard.  Would chicks dig it you ask?  Who knows!?  Who cares!?  Just look at those stripes!
