For all you LBC guys......MG..Triumph....Healey

 

 I just got word that Atlanta Imported Parts over in Decatur has closed the doors. Most of you in the Atlanta area know it was the mecca of LBC parts & pieces. This is going to leave a large void in the used LBC parts market. The only recourse now if your restoring an LBC or trying to keep one on the road seems to be aquiring a parts car. If someone knows of another LBC salvage yard around I'm sure everyone else would like to know. Some of the stuff isn't repopped so a used item…

Recreating a photo of your car

Have you ever wanted to recreate a picture of a past car you owned? With Photoshop and some effort it can be done. When I was eighteen I bought a stock 1955 Ford Customline, but it didn’t stay that way for long. Very shortly it had a four barrel carb installed on the 272 V8, a floor shifter for the three speed overdrive, dual exhaust and coils cut for a 60s style dropped front.  Sadly I didn’t keep any pictures of the car but by using Photoshop I was able to recreate the 55 and the memories…

NHTSA’s 2011 Crash Test Results Place BMW 5 Series and Hyundai Sonata First..by Miguel Caparros

 

Back in October of 2010 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released a new set of

standards for crash safety, raising the bar for the coveted 5 Star



rating by a considerable amount. Initially some 2010 models that did



get a 5 star rating under the old rules did not fair well. The new



crop of vehicles designed with the tougher standards in mind are



doing much better. See the bottom of…

The last Avenue at Cobb Sunday is the December fifth. Did anyone else hear that? And that the tenants say they get no benefit, except the coffee place.

The last Avenue at Cobb Sunday is the December fifth. Did anyone else hear that?

And that the tenants say they get no benefit, except the coffee place.We shop there and my wife spends a lot of money there. The event lets a lot of people get familar with the location. They don't know when they have a good-no-great thing. Most businesses would die for promotions that draw that many high income qualified customers. Couldn't you figure a way to capitalize. There has not been one store flyer… Continue

Reds Auto Salvage

Reds Auto Salvage by Hugh Dudley (a short story) C2010

The old saying "You can never go back" is true in most senses, but not in this case. You see...when I was just a young teenager building my first car, there was a place called Reds Auto Salvage....or just Reds for short. He had all kinds of neat stuff dating back into the late 30's and that made it a wonderland to a guy like me. Old Red was kind of a grumpy type fella.....if he didn't like you,... you were doomed, but if…
