Get a Look at this Wreck!

Get a Look at this Wreck! This is what can happen when a high-performance car and an 18-year-old driver hit the road. The driver was out street racing with his dad's M3 and got a little behind on his coordination, you could say. Hot tip for wannabe race car drivers: There are really nice places called race tracks. They have lots of room and far fewer things to hit. Go there to drive fast. It's what they're made for. So what do car guys do when a lower mileage hot rod like this becomes available? Well, we snatched it up and thought "what can we do with this?" After tossing a bunch of ideas around we decided to swap this into a station wagon. We did a little internet research and made our plan. This wreck would become the donor for a sleeper family wagon. We found a suitable wagon and got to work. This was basically a bolt in swap. We used a 2002 BMW 325 wagon that will take all of the M3 hardware. Due to the genius of German engineering, the chassis platforms are an evolutionar ... read more

It’s Probably Time for Your Auto Maintenance

It’s Probably Time for Your Auto Maintenance

It’s Probably Time for Your Auto Maintenance We all like to think that we're organized and get things taken care of in a timely fashion. But life gets busy and deadlines come and go, and sometimes you have too many balls in the air to take care of even the basics. One thing you really shouldn't let go of is regular car maintenance. It's not sexy and it's not a riot of fun and it probably won't set your heart atwitter, but it's as important as just about anything else on your "to do" list. Maybe the best part about it is that it will save you money down the road if it uncovers potential problems. And everyone likes to save money. And no one likes to be calling for roadside service on a dark and stormy night. All cars come with an owner's manual, so dig yours out and take a look. It will tell you how often to have your car serviced. (If you can't find the manual, you can look for one online or call the dealer.) It is generally recommended that all vehicles should be serviced at le ... read more

How to Find the Best Auto Mechanic

How to Find the Best Auto Mechanic

How to Find the Best Auto Mechanic It would be easy to tell you to not bother looking around for an auto mechanic once you've found us. Because we really think that we are the best. But we want you to be happy and satisfied from the start, so here are some things to do when you need a new mechanic and a place to take your car. Ask around. Ask family, friends, and neighbors for recommendations. Keep your search local. Unless you need a restoration for something like, oh, a 1925 Bugatti, you want a shop you can get to in a hurry. Or one that's simply convenient. See if your local newspaper does a "best of" series. Many times auto shops are covered. If you belong to a car club, all the better. The same recommendations will show up again and again. Check online. Take a look at Yelp and Angie's List and Google. It's good to see the negatives (should there be any) as well as the positives. Stop by the shops you're interested in. Take a look at the cars on the lot - hav ... read more
