Imagine finding and buying a ‘68 Charger or ‘70 Challenger from a junkyard and bringing it back to life. It’s likely that the cost of the car would be fairly inexpensive and restoring it will be where you really spend the money. But that doesn’t mean it can’t done, there are a couple tips and tricks that restoring a classic car to its original beauty can be done on a budget!
Purchasing Necessary Parts
Purchasing the necessary parts to restore the vehicle can be the most expensive part of a classic car restoration. However, there are some tips to make this process easier and more affordable.
First you will need to do a walk around and check EVERY part of the car that may need new parts. If you don’t have the knowledge to do so, you will need to hire someone to help.
Make a list of all the parts and find out if any of the old parts can be refurbished as opposed to replaced completely.
Contact vehicle salvage stores and other local junk yards and enquire about the parts. This could save a lot of money if they have your parts.
When it comes to CUVs there are plenty of choices, which is great, but also overwhelming. So, we narrowed it down to two very popular CUVs and compared them to help you out, the Ford Escape and Dodge Journey. Based on three huge categories people look at when looking for a CUV (space, towing and price) the Dodge Journey takes home the winner title. Check it out.
CUVs are great because generally you get the space you need without the big bulky exterior you may not like. When it comes to interior space and seating, the Journey wins. If you have a big family or a lot of friends, having seven seats is great. Not many CUVs come with that option. The Ford Escape for example only comes in five seats. However, the Dodge Journey comes standard with five, but has the additional option for a seven-seater if you need it. The Dodge Journey is a better option for families!
Even with a CUV, towing can be important. If you need to tow a small boat, ATV or off-road vehicle, or even a small moving trailer the Journey gives you an extra 500 pounds over the Escape. The Escape can tow a maximum of 2,000 pounds and the Journey has the ability to tow up to 2,500 pounds.[click to continue…]

Planning on getting a muscle car, but not sure which one is right for you? Here are some factors you should consider when starting to shop around.
How Are You Going to Use It?
How are you going to be using this muscle car? Will it be your daily driver or a car you bring to the drag strip on the weekend?
If this car is going to be your daily driver and have a family or friends you drive with a lot, you are going to want a five-passenger car and maybe even four doors. If you are interested in a muscle car for leisure or the race track and you don’t plan on not having many passengers, you can sacrifice seats.[click to continue…]
When looking for a vehicle for your family, there are several things to keep in mind and safety and convenience are probably at the top of your list. One brand that has perfected their family vehicles through the years is Dodge.
Currently, Dodge has three different models that have seating for seven people, the Journey, the Durango and the Grand Caravan. Although they all have a unique build and style, they all have a great list of safety and convenience features. Check ‘em out.
The smallest of Dodge’s three seven-passenger vehicles is the Dodge Journey, which is a midsize crossover. The Journey is a versatile choice for consumers because it is available as a five or seven passenger vehicle and the seating can be easily configured for cargo. For maximum cargo capacity, users can fold the the Journey’s seats down to open up 67.6 cubic feet of flat space and there are also extremely convenient built-in floor storage bins that double as built-in coolers.[click to continue…]
Many FCA vehicles, including several Dodge models, are available with Lane Departure Warning with Lane-Keep Assist, which is a new preventative safety technology that monitors the lane a driver is in and keeps the car from accidentally straying into another lane. The new technology makes drivers, passengers and the road much safer.
Though new, this safety feature is very popular among shoppers because it can save lives. Below you will learn more about Lane Departure Warning with Lane-Keep Assist.
Dodge has won some pretty significant NASCAR races over the decades. One of Dodge’s most successful drivers, Lee Petty, won over 37 races and Dodge has won a slew of races including the Daytona 500 four times, Talladega, and two NASCAR manufacturers championships.
Despite Dodge’s successes on the track, after losing team leader, Ray Everham, Dodge tried to sign a new NASCAR team, but they were unsuccessful. Additionally, Dodge was still recovering and regrouping after the 2008 bailout and their focus was more on consumers and developing their brand rather than investing in titles on the race track. So in 2012, Dodge left NASCAR.[click to continue…]
