Detroit has essentially been “the Motown roller coaster.” It is worth looking at the history of this Michigan city, which dates back to 1701, to gain a perspective on it’s growth and eventual decline. At that time, what is now referred to as the Motor City, started as a fort in the wilderness. A French settler by the name of Antoine Laumet de Lamothe Cadillac founded Detroit, which was then a mere fort.

Well done Mr. Hammond. Well done indeed…

Super Van Movie

The mid-to-late 1970’s here in the United States was a pretty interesting time period. The Vietnam War was over, disco was in full-swing and people simply wanted to express themselves anyway they could. The custom van culture was a prime example of this and although considered to be EXTREMELY creepy by today’s standards, you’ve got to give these guys some credit as they came up with some pretty interesting rides.

Honda Drive-In

The drive-in movie theater is just as much a piece of Americana as is hot apple pie or baseball. From the 1950’s throughout the 1980’s drive-in’s were scattered throughout the country. However over the last 25 years, with the advent of digital projectors, there popularity has sadly fallen. Honda has recently launched a campaign to save some of these wonderful theaters and help keep the tradition going strong. It’s called Honda Project Drive-In and thus far they’ve helped out quite a few family owned theaters.

Old Patrol

Body roll, bias-ply tires and brakes so bad that maybe you’d get one or two good stops out of them before the pedal went to the floor. These were the Police cars of the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. Cars like the Dodge Monaco and Plymouth Satellite graced patrol fleets across the United States. They were big, lumbering beasts, but then again so was everything else on the road. The following film demonstrates not only how bad these cars actually were, but more so, how good patrol officers had to be to drive them!

Common sense dictates that before you purchase any used vehicle that a pre-purchase inspection should take place. This is something that can be taken care of as easily as bringing the car to your local mechanic, or hiring an expert to go and check it out for you. Larry Kosilla of AMMONYC.com recently traveled to Pittsburgh, PA to inspect a beautiful Ford GT for a client and explains the ins-and-outs of what to look for.

1959 Bianchina

If you’re ever in the city of Rimini, Italy, then you may just be fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of Annalisa and her little blue 1959 Bianchina. It was chosen from her fathers collection to be her daily driver, and even though it’s not fast, the personality it exudes more than makes up for its lack of speed. It is perhaps, one of the cutest cars we’ve ever seen and we need to thank the crew over at Petrolicious for bringing it to us!

A look at the 1980’s…

The 1980s

If you were to look at what was perhaps one of the greatest transition decades in the automotive industry, the odds of the 1980’s showing up would not be out of the question. It was the decade that saw the death of the carburetor, the inclusion of on-board diagnostic systems, and new safety features like airbags and anti-lock brakes. The industry centered around futuristic hardware and design, and promised people that amazing things were on the horizon. For the most part it was true, however looking back on it now, in 2013, we can see just how lost the 1980’s and the automotive industry as a whole, really were.
