Good news, and more evidence that quickly posting a "Be On The Lookout" on social media can be more effective that filing a police report that is tossed into a filing cabinet

Dwight Sanders is a truck driver and was on the road in Kentucky last week when his neighbor called to tell him that someone broke into his place, and stole his dead wife’s Mustang

He and his wife, Dolores, bought the car brand new in 2011 and worked on customizing it for years after. Dolores died in 2014 from cervical cancer. Sanders says the Mustang is more than just a car, it’s the last memory he has of his wife.

“It was me and my wife’s project,” said Sanders. “She was a wonderful person, everybody loved her. She never made an enemy. She was just a great person.”

He immediately posted photos of the Mustang on facebook, and within days the car was spotted 70 miles away. Police were sent to verify and arrest the perp.

The city of Warren Ohio is now making purple parking spots, reserved for wounded veterans only. That is damn cool

June 28th, 2016 by admin

Although this is the first purple parking spot designated for combat wounded veterans in the city of Warren, officials say there is more to come. In fact, they will be putting one at every city building.

‘Leave It to Beaver’ actor who played Wally was just reunited with his 1st car, a ‘62 Corvair he bought when 16. The man he sold it to 50 years ago died and left instructions to return the car to the former actor.

June 23rd, 2016 by admin

The Corvair in question was Dow’s first car, purchased during the show’s original run. He drove the car for four years, until soon after the show ended. At that point, he sold the car to Alan Dadisman, who built props for Universal.

More than 50 years passed without a word about the car’s whereabouts, until the phone rang recently. “[H]e and his wife, Lauren, received a call recently from a stranger who identified himself as Marty Tryon,” reads a piece in the San Diego Union-Tribune. “The caller…explained that a dear friend had recently passed away and had asked Marty to track down Dow, the Spyder’s former owner, and give him the Corvair. Dadisman thought the actor might like to have his first car back.”

Dow remembered that it was Alan Dadisman’s first car, too. “Who keeps a car for 51 years, then goes to the effort to try to find its former owner to give it back,” Dow asked.

“At first I thought this guy was kidding,” said Dow, who lives near Malibu. “Who keeps a car for 51 years, then goes to the effort to try to find its former owner to give it back? It was Al’s first car, too,” he added.

Not knowing in what kind of shape the Corvair would be, it hadn’t been moved for seven years , but had been restified in 1987 with blue lacquer paint, new wheels, an updated dash and and a beefed-up engine. “It was gorgeous,” said Dow.“I still can’t believe it.”

The Dows hired a tow truck driver to transport it to their home on a flatbed where Tony plans to be behind the wheel once again.

the million mile 2007 Tundra… Toyota has got to be happy with this accomplishment

May 13th, 2016 by admin

Victor Sheppard averages over 125,000 miles per year, resulting in over one million miles logged on the odometer of his 2007 Toyota Tundra.

According to Toyota, Sheppard covers this insane amount of miles thanks to regular trips between his home in Louisiana to North Dakota, Wyoming, and Virginia for work. Surprisingly, the truck carries the original engine and transmission, along with the same paint from the factory. (Similarly, a 600k Toyota Prius taxi made the news

all those rip off bastards who wanted to profit 200-500% on the Art Of Von Dutch book, can go to hell. It’s been reprinted, and a new copy is less than 1/2 any used copy on Amazon

Compare having your own brand new copy to getting a used copy, at twice the cost!

new are even worse rip offs!

and that, is good news to me, I missed buying a copy when they first were published, I just couldn’t afford one. But, my tax return still has 75 dollars left in it!

In this all-new attraction, Luigi will turn the tire storage yard behind his Casa Della Tires into a dance floor! Cars Land guests will be able to ride along with Luigi’s cousins as they move and spin to upbeat Italian music, performing the traditional dances of their hometown village.
