The Mustang Cobra is known as one of the best models of the Mustang that Ford created. It was one of the fastest models of its time and because of decreased weights, has the ability to be modified for even faster speed. In fact, Shelby?s original AC Cobras were designed to be Corvette Beaters, although they weighed almost 500 pounds less than the Chevrolet Corvette. The Mustang Cobra remains a highly popular vehicle in the race world and is one of the most common authentic replication projects today.
The speed was, and still is, one of the most desired aspects of the Mustang Shelby. It was originally fitted with a V8 Ford Windsor engine, something that was unheard of in its time. The Mustang Shelby has only increased in speed in newer models, Continue Reading
Do you have a big event you and your friends want to attend? Maybe you are planning a bachelor or bachelorette night out? Even if you and your friends just want to paint the town red, going with a party bus rental can be a great way to do it. Here are some reasons why you may find party bus rentals the way to go:
- It is an economical way to go. While this may seem counterintuitive, if you split the expense among everyone in the group, you will see that the price tag per person is very reasonable.

Your son’s automotive class in high school has gone a long way toward preparing him for a career within just a few years of graduating from high school. The fact that the high school your son attends offers a wide array of vocational education classes is encouraging. The fact that they also offer a program that easily feeds into the local community college program is more than encouraging, it is motivating. In fact, your son who has never really been a fan of school in the past is now a straight A student.
Your son’s favorites classes, of course, are the auto shop classes that fill his afternoon schedule, but the community college counselor has convinced your son that all of the classes on his schedule are important. In fact, the counselor is willing to offer your son a mostly free education if he can finish wit
How are your tires holding up? If you haven’t replaced them lately you might want to drop by your local repair shop for a check-up. Winter isn’t getting any easier, after all, and a quality pair of used tires will go a long way in keeping you safe and your car in good shape every time you’re out on the open road. Retreating, inflating and winter models are all par for the course when it comes to keeping your car’s health in top shape. If you’re a little out of practice, never fear — below are the top five things you should know before you invest in a new set of used tires.
Tire Alignment And Adjustment
Car maintenance is a complicated and technical issue. There are so many important things to be aware of before you prepare to have maintenance done on your car. Issues with used tires are some of the most common because they are hard to maintain. Experts recommend checking your used tire alignment every 6,000 miles, or when you have your oil changed because a lot can happen in that time. Additionally, a tire rotation should generally be done around every 7,500 miles, or as often as the car manufacturer recommends. Most people don’t keep up with these checks for a variety of reasons, but the underlying cause is simply vehicle neglect. Neglecting vehicles costs the economy over $2 billion every year. If every vehicle owner took the time to take the proper precautions, this cost could be drastically reduced. After all, tires are just as essential to a working car as any other part, and properly maintaining them can add many years to your car’s life.
Issues with used tires aren’t always easy to spot. Under inflation results in unnecessary tire stress, irregular wear, loss of control and accidents. A used tire can lose up to 50% of its inflation pressure and not appear to be flat. That’s why doing frequent tire checks is absolutely crucial for proper used tire maintenance.
The condition of your car’s tires can also majorly affect your risk of being involved in an accident on the road. A study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determined that vehicles driving on tires under-inflated by more than 25% are three times more likely to be involved in a crash related to used tire problems than vehicles with proper inflation. Remember, a quick stop at the gas station to put some air in your tires could truly prevent an accident and save a life!
Another maintenance issue you don’t want to overlook is retreading. When your tires’ tread has worn to 6/32nds of an inch, it’s time to get them replaced. Even though you may not feel a difference in the way your car drives, it can majorly affect a number of different aspects of your car’s overall performance, such as gas mileage.
Overall, car and tire maintenance is extremely important. Think about how much time you spend in your car – your safety comes first.

Buying a car is often someone’s first big purchase.
