While I have always celebrated cars and motorcycles of all kinds, it is natural to have favorites. I fell in love with Porsches on the Interstate years ago when I was passed by a 356 Speedster! This was a number of years before the tragic accident that took James Dean’s life in a…Continue

Steve Ashby, founder and co-owner of The Battery Man, loves to go to car shows, including a recent one in Biloxi, Mississippi. Twenty-five years ago, he and his partner, wife Brenda, bought the company when it was still called Jiffy Jump Atlanta and moved it from Lilburn to Marietta, Georgia.

The manual transmission is on the endangered species list. Every year fewer and fewer cars are offered with a clutch and a shifter. Why? Americans just don't want to be bothered with the chore of working a clutch with their left foot and shifting with their right. And sports car manufacturers are the worst offenders when it comes to quitting on the stick shift.…Continue

C&O was started about nine years about at a Panera Bread in Marietta, Ga and has outgrown a number of locations, steadily growing over the years to a new record set at Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody, GA last Sunday at an estimated 2500 vehicles! It is now owned by the third owner, Bruce Piefke, who clearly has a handle on how to make it better and better. Over the years, the numbers have intimated some of the owners of the older more classic cars, yet there still is a highly respectable…Continue

For several years, www.SouthEastWheeslsEvents.com and a mix of TWs, Georgia Street Rodders and Master Car Club members have been having a regular breakfast cruise-in called the “Coffee Brake” at the Main Street Diner in Snellville, GA.

This article in Road and Track celebrates a man I really enjoyed meeting in Las Vegas at the SEMA convention last year.

So many company leaders seem to put paid staff out front and keep out of the way of press and the general enthusiasts and buyers. But not Rob Dickinson! He seems to enjoy getting to know people and when they gush over his "art work"…Continue

I visited with my old friend's family last night. I have lost a good friend with Mark's passing. So has the Hobby. Here is a great eulogy written by our mutual friend Rickey Dailey.

Hot Summer Days In The South East!
I love my cars when the tops come off, but even then I run the AC when the temps go to close to 100 or more! I have memories of cooking in my old Model A's in August. Here is a video on how important AC can be for you an your car in the Summer; but what is does not tell you is that this company "Air Cool", are experts at installing AC in your collector car or hot rod, inexpensively! And they do it without damaging your classic look!
