Wide tires and traction bars

 

And headers to make her loud

 

We don’t care how fast she runs

 

Just as long she goes WABBOW!

Tip to restoration of your engine compartmen

I thought I’d talk a little about the restoration of your engine compartment, since it is one of the problem areas in a lot of car restoration projects, the first thing that you usually notice, it’s the the engine compartment so it’s full of grease, and of course an engine, so the first thing that you need to do is pull the engine out of the car, it’s a lot easier to pull the transmission with the engine, and pull them as a single unit.

You’ll notice once you do this, that it’s a lot greasier then you thought, but now you can at least get to it to clean it up, first I’d take a steam cleaner to it, and see how much of the grease and years of dirt an road grime that will take off, and don’t be thinking that this will be fast, once you can see that the steam cleaner is not getting any more of...

Understanding Classic Car Auctions
By Andy Jefferson

Classic car auctions have always been a perennial favorite amongst car lovers, both young and old. So much so, that some of them willingly fork over huge sums of money just to get their hands on a rare classic car!

Now this article will shed some light for those of you who aren’t very familiar with these types of auctions, so you might want to pay close attention!

Classic Car Insurance

Classic Car Insurance By Jeff Foote

You can insure a classic, antique, collector, or custom car the same way you insure any other vehicle. However, many classic car owners end up regretting this decision if their vehicle is totaled. Why? Because when your classic car is declared a total loss by a standard auto insurance policy, you will receive the actual cash value of your vehicle, which in most cases will be quite low and won’t leave a smile on your face.
There are far better auto insurance policy options for classic car owners; however, you often have to meet certain criteria to apply for them.

Horse Power The Right Way

Once you have built that big bad engine for your muscle car, you’ll need to be 100% sure that a few other things match the engine that you just built, this is another one of those times when you need to think about what it is you want the car to do, is it a daily driver, or a race car / show car.

What you use the car to do will change the set up of things like the rear end, suspension, and transmission immensely, you can divide the two things evenly, but it usually doesn’t work very well to put a race engine on the street as your daily driver.

To get lower ET’s at the drag strip the racers are usually running a low rear end gear, or ring and pinion set to lower their time when they run the ¼ mile, and the lower the rear gear, the harder it becomes to drive the car on the street every day.
