Curing your car’s cholesterol problem

Whenever the engine in your car is running, the gasoline IT is burning to make power is leaving behind harmful, power-robbing deposits inside your engine.

Replacing a windshield in a Mopar A-body

Replacing a windshield in a Mopar A-body

A new outlook on the road

Rebuilding A Pontiac fuel pump

When rebuilding the original is the best way to go

A multitude of decisions are required in the restoration of any classic or muscle car.

Transforming a 5-liter powered pony into a stallion

Back in the day, 5.0 Mustangs ruled the streets. Eventually, Ford ditched the 5.0L pushrod motor in favor of the 4.6L motor, which carried on Mustang’s proud heritage admirably. Ford tweaked the 4.6L to near perfection over 14 years of faithful service in the Mustang, but ultimately came to the conclusion that bigger was better.... more
