Here's Why You Need To Go To The Henry Ford Museum RIGHT NOW!

Friends, Family, Fellow Jalops I come bearing urgent news. The car you're looking at in the above picture is the GT40 Mark I Chassis # 1075 currently on display at The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI. Why is this significant? Because it won at Le Mans.

Unintentional Modernized General Lee

I was up at the vacation house in northern Michigan this past weekend and the massive storm that blew through took out my flag pole (and later a tree, that rocked me out of bed but that's a story for another time).

Can anybody recommend a modern GM performance shop near Detroit?

I have a build that's been bouncing around in my head for a while now, and with my recent big job upgrade (I have to keep that under wraps for the time being, I'll share as soon as I can!) I'm moving back to Detroit. I'll be making more money, and spending less (I live in Philly now, cost of living is pretty high out… » 8/28/13 8:06pm 8/28/13 8:06pm
