10 Tips for Tackling Your First Major DIY Automotive Repair

Editor’s Note: This a guest article from Tony Galloway. I started my automotive DIY journey about 12 years ago when I was supporting a family of three on a salary of $28K a year. It was the height of the economic recession, and I had to cut costs somewhere, so I decided to change my own oil. It wasn’t long before financial necessity dictated I graduate to brake pad replacement as well. Each year some new problem would pop up, leading me to question whether I might be better served by a trip to...

Another observation - if you're a consumer product company, you might have an easier "in" to gather attention from the kids on campus than non-product companies.  No one has done it better recently than Natural Light (that's right, the beer).  Natural Light, better known as "Natty Light," the...

Customs were Red Hot—In More Ways than One–During an Eventful 1957

Kustoms. What a year this was for George Barris, starting with unprecedented media exposure and concluding with the disastrous shop fire that nearly put the planet’s best-known customizer out of business. George calculated damages to be a quarter-million dollars (equivalent to $2.2M now). Sure, the shop was insured for anything short of acts of God—one of which the courts determined to be exploding transformers, thereby relieving both the electric utility and insurance company of responsibility....

The Girl On The Team: How Julia Knapp Is Changing High School Football As We Know It

Julia Knapp’s rise to starting kicker on a top-ranked high school football team doesn’t start with a made-for-TV-movie tale of blood, sweat, sexism and tears.

It’s What All The Cool Kids Are Doing: The 7 Degree Switch

Years ago, buckle-up campaigns helped get motorists in the habit of wearing seat belts every time they’re in a vehicle (I can’t imagine not wearing one now, but apparently it was common place not to at one point, wow!) Most recently we’ve seen a huge push to get drivers to put down their (*#$!^) cell phone behind the wheel, something that I’ve spoken about many times and a huge pet peeve of mine. Hopefully, dropping your phone in your purse or console will be as common-place as clicking a seat b...
