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…
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.
This month ebay Motors is celebrating Collector Car Appreciation Month. Within this celebration is a featured eBay listing for one of the original 1939 GM Futurliners. If you aren’t up to par on your Futurliner history, they were basically tour buses that Harley Earl & his crew produced 12 of way back in the 1930’s. When the Futurliners combined their superpowers on the open road, they became General Motors’ “Parade of Progress”. This futuristic parade toured the entire United States along with parts of Canada, Mexico and Cuba. Their goal was to show off some of the newest technologies that were going to make the world a better place. » Continue reading more of this post…
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.
In the post Y2K world, Hyundai’s are rear wheel drive, and can be found shredding their Potenzas with 429 meat filled V8 horsepower. On Friday, anything is possible.
Can’t see the video? Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJAbrSWujv4
Today was the final launch for a manned space craft by the NASA program (for now). That means that all of your lofty dreams of being a real life astronaut, and repelling off of that weird mysterious face on the moon are now null and void. You will never feel the force of a rocket on your back pushing you to 17,000 mph, and you won’t be taking the moon rover over any sweet jumps. Again, sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Luckily for you, you have something more exciting than intergalactic space travel in your life. I’ll give you a hint. The special thing is in front of you right now. It’s called – a sextuplet of shiny new NASA related pictures! » Continue reading more of this post…
