Hot Rod Garage: Diedelson’s Kustom Chevy

Posted in Best of, Chevrolet, Custom, Death Wish, Domestic Rides, Educational, General, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | February 27th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

1951 Chevy Scraper

Getting the stance right in a custom vehicle can either make it or break it from a visual perspective. Set it too high and it looks like a 4×4, set it too low and you’re dragging oil pans. Diedelson’s Customs in Holland has opted for the latter on their 1951 Chevy Truck and in doing so has created a vehicle that looks like it came out of some B-rated horror flick. It’s old and rusty, but thanks to a front airbag suspension it actually runs pretty good when pushed hard. Is it for everyone? Well no. However if you’re diggin’ on the rusty ole’ airbag look, then this slammed old Chevy may just be the one for you.

Levi's Hot Rod

The American hot-rod is an icon. It was crafted out of rebellion, ingenuity and the will to be different. They were meant to go fast, get looks and at days end, announce to the world that you had arrived in style. The truth is though, in the last 60 years not a whole lot has changed. Sure technology has advanced, but deep down the basic DNA has always remained the same. Levi’s recently launched a great ad that not only transports us back to a time when life was a little simpler, but reminds us why cars, of any vintage are all masterpieces just waiting to be turned into hot-rods.

5 Inspirationally Designed Camper Vans

Posted in Vans by Ryan | February 5th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

It’s important to decorate your living space so that it feels like home, whatever you want home to be like. Even if you spend most of your time in a camper van you can still add storage space and make it feel roomy and inviting. The following top 5 campers have really cool interior designs that you can incorporate into your own camper van.

1. A Double Duty Kitchen

1

Even when residing in a camper van you can still have a working kitchen. This kitchen allows users to store their stove in its special drawer when they are done using it. Items such as a tea kettle can be placed in the sink and the sink can be covered up to add much needed counter space.

2. Up High Storage Bins

2

These bins are a great example of van racking and are a great way to store little items such as toiletries or even undergarments. You can put ceiling high shelving up yourself and get storage bins to match the overall theme of your interior. To keep the bins from moving around when you are traveling, attach a piece of Velcro to the shelf and the bin to easily and inexpensively keep it in place.

3. Door Storage Shelves

3

Doors with shelves attached are a great place to store items. Shelves can be placed on the door and the items that are stored can be easily accessed whether the doors are open or closed. Things like dishtowels or kitchen accessories are the perfect items to store on shelves that are on doors. Just make sure that the placement of the shelves still allows you to access the door’s handle and locks.

4. Fun Decor

The easiest way to make a camper van feel like home is to add a fun decor. You can reupholster bench seats yourself and add matching pillows as well. Don’t forget to add a skid resistant rug to the flooring and curtains that will complement the overall interior. You can even put pictures up if you attach them to the wall securely. To make the camper van look bigger, consider using light or pastel colors that give the allusion of the space actually being larger than it is.

5. Customized Bed

You can fit a bed into your camper van by getting creative. Simply attach a bed approximately 3 feet from the ceiling to leave several feet below it for storage. You can even attach a small TV to the wall towards the front of your bed so that it feels like a bedroom.

Amazing Motorcycles

10 to 15 thousand miles per year. That’s what I used to ride when I was into motorcycles. There was a time that there were the dominant force in my life and served not only as transportation, but as my getaway from the everyday. However immersing the rider in mechanical serenity is only one aspect of motorcycling. The other is their ability to take you places that few cars would ever dare.

2012 Ford Focus Electric: Ridelust Review

Posted in Best of, Car Reviews, Domestic, Domestic Review, Domestic Rides, EcoLust, Electric Cars, Electric Vehicles, Featured, Ford, General, Other Rides, Rides by MrAngry | November 19th, 2012 | 2 Responses |

2012 Ford Focus Electric

This is the 2012 Ford Focus Electric, a variant of Ford’s already stellar Ford Focus. It’s got all the same bells and whistles as the normal Focus sans one very important detail; a gasoline powered engine. The Focus Electric is Ford’s answer to the Nissan Leaf as it’s a full-on electric car. The Focus and Leaf are about the same size and have a similar range, but the Focus has the ability to recharge in about half the time of the 2012 Nissan Leaf. I’ve been playing around with this car for about a week, and I can tell you that at this writing, I actually like it quite a bit.

Diesel Power: World’s Fastest Tow!

World's Fastest Tow

There are good ideas and then there are bad ideas. For example; eating your vegetables, going to the dentist and paying taxes are good ideas. Towing a trailer behind a diesel pickup truck at 140 mph, well, not so much. That however didn’t stop Diesel Power’s Associate Editor Jason Sands from heading out to the El Mirage Dry Lake Bed to try it though.
