We're always looking for interesting car stuff to share!  Here are some links to articles, videos, photos, or other things that got our motors running!

What a piece of machinery!!! – The best photography of a car I have seen. Under-the-hood shots show some amazing details. Like, apparently a full set of spare spark plugs mounted just behind the fire wall and what appear to be four carburetors. What appears to be the ignition switch has a “heat” position, which makes me think the engine is equipped with glow plugs in the inlet manifold. The radiator cap is a real gem, with its own cam and lever system. The jump seat for the third passenger, plus its location would seem to add emphasis that he, or she, is along strictly to tend bar. http://www.thewholecar.com/1930-bentley-blue-train-recreation

Corvettes at Wal-Mart – Though the building in Punta Gorda, Florida was once a Wal-Mart, it's not any more. When Rick Treworgy saw that it was vacant, he decided it would be the perfect place to showcase almost 200 Corvettes and other GM muscle cars he owns in a vast collection begun more than 30 years ago. He bought it, and now, it's open to the public. Called Muscle Car City, the venue is attracting thousands of people who harken back to the golden days of muscle cars and their youth. It's also drawing a newer generation of enthusiasts.
