    • Craig Bresley- 1956 Buick Super

      "I drive a school bus part time. I'm a disabled OIF Veteran. My wife is currently serving. I have a 1956 Buick Super that I have been working on for over a year but its got a long way to go! The shock mounts on the rear are busted off so it bounces with the wind! The transmission leaks so bad Im afraid to drive it and risk burning it up. Everything I have done to it has been on the cheap(spray can primer, blankets for seat covers). I would love to have the Super drive-able so I could have family outings in it. Not asking for full custom, just drive-able." -Craig Bresley

    • America's 5 Greatest Muscle Cars...Do You Agree?

      1970 Dodge Charger

      You know how it is when you're at a car show...you're shooting the bull with the boys when the discussion gets around to muscle cars. Everyone's got an opinion on what the top American muscle cars are, and each muscle car fan has his or her own "list".

      But I came across this list on the SenseTheCar.com blog, and to me it's hard to argue with the choices (as long as it's not listed in any particular order!).

      The cars are listed below. If you disagree, feel free to give us your list in the comments section below.

      Dodge Charger
      Immortalized forever as the "General Lee" in the TV show, "The Dukes of Hazzard".

      Pontiac GTO
      "Critics in its day pointed out the sluggish steering, sparse interior and unsteady brakes, but once the GTO hit a straight line, it blew its competition out of the water."

      Chevrolet Chevelle
      "...in 1970, Chevrolet released a bombshell with the Chevelle SS and its jaw-dropping 450-horsepower engine."

      Chevrolet Camaro
      "One of the longest-lived muscle car models, thanks to its persistent popularity."

      Ford Mustang
      "The most successful muscle car of all time...synonymous with the kind of raw power and thrills the world expects from a brilliant piece of American engineering."

    • SEMA 2012- Eastwood Company Part 4 Coverage

      Getting noticed at SEMA is very important. Show cars, trucks, and motorcycles are there for only a couple reasons. Either to show off products the company sells or to draw attention and get foot traffic through their booth (this is a trade show after all!). Whatever the reason is, everyone is trying to a different approach to draw attention. If you want to figure out which cars or booths are the best at the show, all you need to do is look for crowds around a booth. There you'll find either an exceptionl car, a celebrity, or an attractive model; regardless you won't be disappointed if you take a peak.

      Shooting pictures of some of the high profile cars at SEMA is really tough. There's always crowds surrounding the cars and often people are so excited about checking the car out, they're oblivious to the line of photographers waiting for that small window when they can fire off a few shots of the car. I can tell you from personal experience, it takes a mix of patience, skill and luck! The custom ford above is a perfect example. It had the performance of a super car and the looks of a classic muscle car all blended together to create what I'd call a "retro super car". The crowds were relentless around this car and we had to make our way into the show early just to check it out beforehand.

      Then there were cars and booths that were built just for shock value to get the attention of the thousands of cameras in attendance. The typical formula for a busy booth is to get a vehicle with some flashy/shiny paint, lots of chrome, some giant wheels, and a beautiful model standing next to the vehicle. Hyundai and an artist teamed up to take this idea to the next level and they built a Zombie support vehicle out of a new Hyundai. They then employed some attractive (is that possible?) zombies to pose with the car and show-goers! This idea was pretty cool and timely for the SEMA show taking place around the Halloween holiday each year.

      Aside from the gimmicks and crowds, there were some really nice classic cars at the show. We tried to catch some of our favorites shown below in the Mopar display. They put together one of the nicest selections of Dodge, Plymouth, and Chrysler classics we've seen in a while! Check the rest of our favorites from this portion of the show in the gallery below.

    • 11 Minutes Of Ferrari and The Stelvio Pass

      Just

      Ferrari 459 Spider.

      Ferrari

      This blog article is not about restoring a headlight or removing rust from frame rails.

      It's simply an invitation to drive a Ferrari 458 Spider through Northern Italy's Stelvio Pass Road, thought by many to be "The Greatest Driving Road in Europe".

      Well, you won't actually be "driving"...more like "watching". Car and Driver's YouTube channel has a breathtaking video of their European correspondent, Jethro Bovingdon, putting that beast of a Ferrari through its paces as it takes on the 48 hairpin turns through the gorgeous Stelvio Pass.

      Turn up the volume, maximize the screen and enjoy the rush! The journey begins here.
