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 Miguel Caparros


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

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.

Reds Auto Salvage

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

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…
