    • Did you celebrate "Friday the 13th"?

      If you're not too superstitious, and you're an Eastwood customer, you probably celebrated Friday, July 13, 2012, as "Collector Car Appreciation Day". That day was designated by the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Action Network, and was celebrated throughout the month of July with events in 38 states, two Canadian provinces, and even in Australia.

      While Eastwood customers certainly need no one to remind them about the pleasures of car restoration, others do! So, July 13 marked the third commemoration of what has become an annual event to celebrate and raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society...and we're proud to be part of that!

      Now, if you didn’t get a chance to attend one of these events, the next best thing is to check out some of the 600+ pictures of all those custom rides that were on display throughout North America. Click on the link below:

    • SEMA or SAN and Classic Car Enthusiasts Fight Raised Ethanol Levels in Fuel

      Ethanol is a "hot term" right now in the automotive industry. New car manufacturers are developing modern vehicles to run on fuel that has progressively higher ethanol rates all the time. Helping to fight pollution and emissions emitted from a vehicle is great. But, it can be extremely harmful to older vehicles that came from a time before the addition of ethanol into fuel was even thought of. Recently SAN (SEMA Action Network) released a report on the SEMA Push to Ban E15 Fuel until official studies are completed showing how dangerous E15 (gas with 15% ethanol) are for older cars, trucks, motorcycles, ATV, and even lawn mowers.

      SEMA is urging classic car owners concerned about the effects of ethanol on their vehicles to contact their members of congress and voice their opinions on this potentially dangerous new fuel. Check out the video above where Mark R. from Eastwood discusses the dangers of high amounts of ethanol in fuel to collector and antique vehicles. Eastwood offers our Fuel Guard additive that you can add on each fill-up or before storage to help fight the corrosive properties of Ethanol in modern day fuel.
