Automotive Recycling: What Happens When Your Car Goes To The Graveyard?

Automotive Recycling

Many of us love our car. Sometimes we love it to death, literally. Maybe it was our first car and so we drove it until it wouldn’t drive anymore, or maybe it was your teens older car, and it just can’t be fixed in an affordable way. Maybe, you just want an upgrade since your old jalopy is falling apart. So when your car is ready to “die,” what happens when it goes off to the car graveyard?

Car dealerships will most likely take your vehicle in on trade when you are ready for it to go. When they take an older vehicle, many times, it will be sent off to auction, and even if it isn’t going to be resold, they will be purchased for parts. Other scrappers will sell vehicles to salvage yards to earn a quick buck, but what happens when your loved one arrives at its final destination? Continue reading

The New Porsche 911 GT3 RS is Made for the Track

2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

As one of the world’s greatest performance cars, especially with the long run of success  the 911 has enjoyed, the GT3 RS variant of the 911 comes in as a sports car that has it all and will keep you easily rolling as fast as you want (as long as that speed is not above 188 mph) and gives you back everything you put into this amazing car.

Even without the RS kit the GT3 makes 475 horsepower and will make a better top speed, but this car is really about going to the racetrack where there’s a pack of talented drivers waiting to take the lead away from you and actually reaching this top speed is a rarity even on straightaways.  The need on a track is to have awesome downforce, airflow, aerodynamics and handling.

From streaming music and navigation, to apps that allow you to play games, find the cheapest gasoline, and skype or snapchat that allow you to talk face to face, our smartphones seem to do it all.

Finding Exclusivity on Common Ground

Ford SkyRanger

The Ford Ranger was one of the most popular and most sold trucks of all time but is now a thing of the past. Many times when you are looking for something that is unique, you have to search where you wouldn’t expect, a place that shows you similarities but differences. This brings us to the Ranger in question, which isn’t just any Ford Ranger, but one that was built in 1991 and had only twenty versions of it actually built. Why so few, maybe because of the limited market, or possibly because Ford realized it should not have a truck with these features, but either way this Ranger was one of intrigue and interest.
