    • Remembering 9/11 through Moving Art

      11 years ago our country was devastated by the acts of terrorism that occurred on 9/11/01. By now many of us have begun to heal, but the memory of that day will always remain. Some great people over the years have done many different things to remember those who passed. One of the great things about the automotive aftermarket is that in times of need we always seem to pull together and give back in some shape or form. We've seen a number of cars, trucks, bikes, etc built in remembrance of 9/11 and many auctioned or displayed to benefit those directly affected. We've decided to share some of our favorite tributes in the gallery below. Thanks to all that put in work to build these great works of art.

    • Saving A Veterans Classic Car- Pottstown Classics Restore A Local Hero's Galaxie

      It's no secret that Pennsylvania, especially the eastern portion where we reside, is a hotbed for classic cars and the automotive culture. Over the past 1.5-2 years the Pottstown Car Club (with help from local businesses), have restored a 1967 Ford Galaxie for veteran infantryman Brad Herron. For this build the entire automotive community in the area pulled together to get Brad cruising in his Galaxie.

      The story began when Brad's wife Dina came to the Pottstown Classics to ask for their help in finishing Brad's stalled '67 Ford Galaxie project. Since serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, Brad was having severe post-traumatic stress disorder, making it difficult to bring the car to where he envisioned it. The club graciously agreed, and after an "Overhaulin'"-esque pickup of the car... they took it into their hands and began putting their experienced touches into the car. We at Eastwood were lucky enough to see the car taking shape as they showcased the car and progress display at the Eastwood Summer Classic Shows and other local shows. During the build we were able to donate a number of products including Thermocoustic Sound Deadener, Underhood Black, and Rust Encapsulator, etc, to help move the project along.

      Fast forward to this past August 4th, and the Pottstown Classics delivered the car back to Brad at their monthly classic car cruise-in on High Street in Pottstown. Brad was overwhelmed with the condition of the car and the help from the community. We at Eastwood are proud to say that some of our products were donated and used on this great build. We want to thank Brad for serving for this country, and the great crew at the Pottstown Classics for seeing this project through and making a dream become a reality for this veteran.
