    The 1998 Daytona 500 won by Dale Earnhardt! THIS was when Nascar racing was KING!

    Amazon Fire TV question for our video experts.

    So I've been using an Amazon Fire TV 4K stick for about 2 years. About two weeks ago I noticed that ESPN basketball games were sub-par quality. Very noticeable. I had to watch the last two UConn Women's NCAA championship games with some distain. The video was fuzzy and looked to be like 480...

    1968 Shelby GT500KR on BaT

    Really nice 1968 Shelby GT500KR.....but it would be getting more money if it was a 4-speed manual. With 6 hours to go, it sits at $186,000. Wonder what the same car with a 4-speed manual would fetch today?

    Only 535 miles on this one. Nice looking S281. I thought it would be higher than the current $35K bid, but there's 8 hours remaining. Any guesses on where it will end at?

    So over the past year, thugs/thieves from surrounding local cities have been stealing catalytic converters at night here in town, usually between midnight and 3AM. They're hard to catch in the act because they can cut the converters off in 5-10 minutes. And, it's been at times when the...

    I found this really need article and thought I'd share it since there have been some other neat articles touching on ordering cars back in the '60s and early '70s. Brings back a lot of memories. There are a few points made in the article that I don't really agree with, but overall it's good...

    Hennessey Mammoth 1000 RAM Truck.

    I'm not a fan of Hennessey Performance, but this is one hell of a truck. Interesting to view the specs of this beast. Power-wise, a TRX owner can easily duplicate the performance at a much lower cost. Only 200 being made. Will they sell that many? Performance! (y) Design/Looks! (y)...
