Ryobi 18V One+ Project Wet/Dry Title Image

Ryobi 18V One+ Project Wet/Dry Vacuum

I have the same problem vacuuming out my car, that I do with pumping up my tires — the fuse blows on the only electrical plug-in I have access to.

After great results using both the Ryobi 18V One+ Dual Function Inflator/Deflator and the Power Inflator, I decided to give their Project Wet/Dry Vacuum a try.

To find out how well the cordless Ryobi 18V One+ Project Wet/Dry Vacuum did vacuuming out the Cobalt SS/SC, check out this review!

Longacre Pro Precision Tire Gauge

Is there an advantage to precision instruments like the Longacre Racing Products Pro Precision 4.5" Tire Gauge?

That's a valid question and in my personal experience I've formed the opinion that there definitely is.

In fact, I've wanted a quality tire gauge for years, but never gotten around to laying out the cash to buy one — there's a reason, they aren't cheap, and I'm poor.

That's a situation I've recently corrected and you can check out this review of the Longacre Pro Precision Tire Gauge to see if it really was worth it.

How to Rebuild and Modify Rochester Quadrajet Carburetors Front Cover

How to Rebuild and Modify Rochester Quadrajet Carburetors

The Rochester Quadrajet has been around for a while and during the last 50+ years it's gotten itself a reputation for being a lackluster performer, but in How to Rebuild and Modify Rochester Quadrajet Carburetors, author and Q-Jet guru, Cliff Ruggles, disagrees.

This book goes about systematically explaining how the Quadrajet works — including its strengths and weaknesses — and proceeds to show you how, in careful detail, to rebuild and modify Rochester's spreadbore fuel mixer for street use in your Muscle Car as well as all out performance on the race track.

To see if How to Rebuild and Modify Rochester Quadrajet Carburetors is the book you've been looking for to understand this misunderstood carb, check out my thorough review.

The Complete Ultimate Factories Car Collection

Ultimate Factories

I haven't found a series that does a better job illuminating the subject of manufacturing than National Geographic's Ultimate Factories.

When you restore or customize your ride, it's difficult to do it well if you don't understand where it came from or how it was put together. If your serious about your hobby and it involves being hip deep in your car's parts, then Ultimate Factories is a must-see.

Although this is a review of the series, it's also a guide that references every single episode I could find with a perspective geared specifically towards the automotive enthusiast.

Check it out and enjoy!
