Here is what was happening, the oil companies were getting 45 cents per gallon to mix ethanol with gas. They pocketed that instead of passing on the savings to YOU the tax paying consumer. If they...

I remember years ago when the restored 1920-1941 cars brought more than the hotrods. Now you get vastly more for a hotrod than you do for a perfectly restored car of the same vintage. Look at what a...

I know the cop who busted these guys, and they went away for it. They also ended up losing a bunch of cars for the owners. There is a reason it is a felony and an even better reason not to do it. If...

That is a seriously scary car, booger welded frame, rust just painted over. Wow. I would feel ashamed to have that go out of my shop.
