The world’s premiere car aftermarket exhibition, the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, was full of amazing restored and customized vehicles. Showing off many of them were another pretty set of models. Other attractive faces were on hand, from NASCAR racers Danica Patrick and Juan Pablo Montoya to the strangely compelling zombies [...]
I truly cannot believe that we are at the end of the 2013 season already. However before you tune in for this weekend’s season-closing Brazilian Grand Prix, I want you to apologize to your neighbors in advance. Then, despite the late hour of this weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix, I suggest that you turn up your [...]
