  • SEMA 2010 Excitement rising!

    For anyone that is into restoring, modifying, or making a car look cool, the place to be early November is in Las Vegas for the SEMA show. This show is for all of the movers, shakers, and "up and comers" in the automotive aftermarket. Once inside, it's almost common place to be rubbing elbows with celebs (try not to spill your coffee on Chip Foose!). Unfortunately for most of the auto community, this event is for people in the "industry" only. This means that you need an "in" with a business or company to get into the show.

    Luckily for everyone stuck at home this year, I am going to be posting live from the show to give you updates on whats hot, new, and exciting this year at the show. I also am asking for YOU the Eastwood reader, to feel free to tell me what YOU want to see. So if there is a hot new product or show car you've hear rumors of being there.. let me know, and I'll do my best to track it down and snap some shots for everyone!

    Lastly, keep an eye out for videos and an interview with our "Eastwood Vegas Dream Ride Tour" contest winner Tom Shinn. This will be his first SEMA experience, and we want to get his thoughts on the entire SEMA show, and his favorite cars and booths from the show!

    So let me know what you want to see, and I'll try to work my magic to make it feel like you are right there hobnobbing with other well-known motor heads!

    Check for my first post sometime Monday early evening! Also keep an eye on our Facebook page for mobile uploads directly from the show, never know who I might see or run into (hopefully without spilling anything on them)!

  • J.R.'s Dream Car Gets some Love

    Some of you may have caught the short promo video we did for our Vegas Dream Ride Tour. It showcased J.R.'s recently acquired Mercury Capri project car. Well, this week he finally started digging into the car in the first of many restoration projects on the car. Check out the video below, as well as the rust he is dealing with initially repairing! More pics to come as we dig in!

  • Getting a little too loose

    While doing my daily search of hot automotive topics, viral videos, and general forum gossip, I came across this video.

    Now I am all for doing burnouts, getting sideways, and having a little "fun" in your ride. But sometimes you need to make it a practice of taking that split second before you do something silly like that, to check out your surroundings and rethink the consequences. This fellow obviously did not have the control or experience to be doing something like that with a crowd of people around. Everyone was luckily ok, but that could have turned out way worse.

    Speaking of burnouts, I shot a fun video/commercial yesterday involving the little gem pictured below doing some smoky burnouts and promoting our current contest Eastwood's Vegas Dream Ride Tour. Watch this space, and our Youtube channel for the final edit!

    -Matt (the Capri runs much better than it looks!)

  • Whats all this talk about the new Ferrari 458 Italia?

    If you follow current automotive news, you may have heard a lot of talk about the new sports car to come out of the Ferrari camp. This thing oozes "sexy sports car", and most any red-blooded car enthusiast would love to own, or even have a chance to drive one. I decided to save you guys and gals the research and reading on the different opinions on "why this car is so great", or "why has a handful of them started on fire recently?", or "what can this car really do if "beat on"?, and post a couple of videos that seem to be getting some buzz that cover all of those questions. I highly recommend the Top Gear review, both humorous, and really makes you feel like you are right there driving it with them as they test it! There is even a teaser video for the popular video game "Gran-Turismo".. looks like they may be including it in a future game! Enjoy!

    And if you want to drive a Ferrari and other dream cars, don't forget to enter our Vegas Dream Ride Tour contest!!

    Feel free to post a comment below on your thoughts on this new sports car!
