Drive Clean

Every time you head out for a drive, there is a risk that road or track debris will chip your paint. Should this affect the frequency and intensity with which you drive? We don’t think so. This week on DRIVE CLEAN, we teach you the basic techniques for paint chip repair. While the chips are esthetically painful, what’s even more painful is the rust that will form from leaving them uncovered. With patience and proper application the results of your correction can be surprising. Most importantly, the substrate is once again protected from oxidization. – Larry Kosilla

Today’s story is about a true barn find. The car in question is a 1966 Porsche 912, which was last registered 23 years ago. We discovered the car thanks to our friend Roger Garbow, from Full Throttle Marketing. He had received a call about the car’s discovery and immediately forwarded the info to us, here at Drive Clean. Address in hand, we turned our crews around and headed-off to a northern region of Connecticut where we unearthed and restored this classic car. Watch as we assess our find, remove years of accumulated filth and grime, and initiate the paint correction phase on this 912′s “Irish Green” shell. – LARRY KOSILLA / FOUNDER: AMMONYC.com

AMMO NYC founder Larry Kosilla knows a thing or two about automotive detailing. You see after caring for some of the most priceless automobiles in existence over the last decade, Kosilla became so disenfranchised with the car care industry that he took matters into his own hands and created AMMO NYC, a company dedicated to creating products that cater to the toughest automotive enthusiast. To start the year off right AMMO hosted a party at Manhattan Classic Car Club. The automotive press turned out in droves to not only have some fun, but celebrate a company that finally understands what we as dedicated petrol-heads want for our vehicles.

Studs are for Duds

Posted in Car Care, Rants & Raves, Roads by Dustin Driver | February 16th, 2012 | 4 Responses |

Studs. Much studs.

When Old Man Winter belches hoarfrost over the land, it’s only natural to seek solace in a nice set of studded snow tires. The grinding metallic paws provide a sense of security. They just feel like they’re slicing through the ice, delivering life-saving stability and grip. Au contraire mon frère! Studded tires are terrible. They provide less grip in frosty conditions than their specialized studless counterparts and they pulverize pavement, turning roads in to rutted moonscapes. Stop buying studded tires. They suck.

This is why I said, 'be careful with a heat gun.' Image: Ward Kadel

After years of washing, waxing and turning wrenches on cars and bikes, I’ve got a good feel for what works and what doesn’t. The latest “miracle glaze” polish usually doesn’t look as good or last as long as a good-old-fashioned hand waxing, and I’ve given up trying new cleaners for wheels or preservatives for tires. I know the brands I trust, so I stick with them: ironically, sometimes the best products aren’t even designed for use on cars. Below are five things you probably have around the house today that can serve double-duty when cleaning, polishing or wrenching on cars. Read More…
