Bicester Heritage is heaven for classic car fans. There is some seriously cool metal on show in the restoration shops that have found their home there. But right in the middle is something that looks classic, but is in fact brand new. Something that looks like it could have been the Batmobile in the 1930s. Something called Atalanta

The Old Car Nut Book: "Where old car nuts tell their stories" (Volume 1)

The Old Car Nut Book was designed with the idea that EVERYONE in the old car hobby has a story or two to tell. These are stories from regular Old Car Nuts from across America. Contributors range from people like the average Joe at a car show to collectors and restorers that are very well known and respected in their local communities. The stories in this book tell about the contributor’s experiences from the time that cars first caught their eye up to their latest project and reveal the people and events that made an impact on them. You’ll laugh and you’ll cry. You’ll step right into the past with each story told.

Excerpts from The Old Car Nut Book

My wife said, “You paid how much for what? What are you, president of the Stupid Club?” I guess I have yet to learn my lesson. Maybe my dad was right! Excerpt from Lessons in Stupidity by Gary M. Hughes

She had heard me coming from a block away and watched with amusement as I tried to extract myself from the Pantera. As I clumsily attempted to exit the car, my foot caught on the seat and I almost landed on my keister in front of the whole neighborhood! Vicki chuckled and said, wryly, “Any cool factor you may have by owning that car will immediately be obliterated when they see you trying to get out of it!” Excerpt from Pandora by Chris Kimball

I put my foot to the floor and unleashed its full explosive power. It kicked the car into a hard fishtail to the right, which is exactly what I wanted. I held my foot to the floor while looking out the right side of the windshield. I could kinda hear my passenger screaming something, but didn’t care. I slammed it into second gear and the force caused the rubber dash pad that covered the entire length of the dash to fly off into John’s lap. Fishtailing to the left now, the screaming was getting much louder but I still couldn’t make it out clearly. I slammed it into third, revving between gears enough to go sideways one more time before shifting to fourth and coasting. Excerpt from A Ride To Remember by Jim Muchenfuhs

I’d slide behind the huge steering wheel, peer out the tiny windows, and dream that I was driving it. Of course, in my dreams it was pristine, rather than the rusting hulk sitting in the briars on two flat tires that it really was. Someday, I’m gonna have one of these, I’d tell myself. Excerpt from Good Job Kid by Tom Glide

Resigning myself to saying goodbye, I bent and gave her a final kiss on the hood and walked away. I was so upset that I forgot to even take any pictures. Walking away, I didn’t look back and I’ve never seen her again, but I keep going back to the New England Summer Nationals every year. Excerpt from Telltale Skirts by Domenic Tringali

I raced with some of the biggest names in Stock Car Racing, like Ralph Earnhart, Gale Yarborough, David Pearson, and Lee Petty. I remember a young Dale Earnhart hanging around with all of us drivers at the track when he was just a little boy. Excerpt from Go Karting in the Fast Lane by Captain Jack McClure

Again, he revved his engine to demonstrate the deep throaty sound of the old glass pack mufflers as he rocked back and forth in his seat, anxiety about to get the best of him. I was sure he was going to jump the light early. I revved back. Excerpt from The Race That Never Happened by David Dickinson

He was awe struck, to say the least, and didn’t speak for a few minutes. He was just taking it all in. This was an extremely “special” moment for us both and one I will carry for with me forever. Excerpt from”Bonneville Bob” by Ron Shincke

Some Tips For Your Car Conversion Project

Having a car has been the symbol of status from the years and will continue for many more years to come without any dispute. But, in recent years going through regular hike in the prices of fuel and gas across the world, maintaining the car is becoming quite difficult for lots of the owners and they are finding alternate ways to minimize their investment on fuel. Moreover, with increasing concern of the government’s ruling in different countries towards the pollution free vehicles, day is not away when there will be no fuel vehicles running on the roads.

Going through all these concerns, not only the car owners, but also the manufacturers have started developing strategies for manufacturing vehicles that do not run on any type of fuel. As an impact of this, endeavors for manufacturing electric vehicles has gained momentum in recent years throughout the world and today every manufacturer is launching the electric variant of its newly launched car in the market along with its regular versions running of both petrol and diesel.

Although this is an interesting and revolutionary step towards the pollution free environment and has succeeded in receiving the huge support by the people within the world, but on the other side has also developed the lines of tension on the heads of owners having luxurious cars parked in their yard. Because, in the future when there will be no fuel or the government of their country will strictly restrict the use of fuel, will their car be waste material that is of no use for them and will their money go into the waste box?

Interestingly, these owners need not have to get tensed for their car, as going through their concern lots of repairing experts are offering the facility of car conversion, and converting their existing car into an electric vehicle which is not only fuel-efficient like their existing car but also pollution free. Besides this today, you can also find conversions kits available in the market that are easy to use and can be easily used by the person having little knowledge about car mechanism. In-fact use of the electric car conversions kit is gaining huge popularity among the drivers struggling with the problem of increasing fuel consumption by their car. The power generation efficiency of the electric cars is measured in kw rather than bhp as measured for the car running on the fossil fuels.

Tips for car conversion: Now the question arises how to convert your existing car into an electric car? Before installing the kit into your car make sure that you have removed useless accessory items like powerful sound system, or powerful lights etc from your car. In simple words you have minimized the weight of your vehicle so that it doesn’t consume much of the power. While converting the car into an electric car only the gasoline component of your car will be removed with electric motors and the other components like brakes, steering wheel, safety features etc will remain unchanged.

Advantages of car conversion: Some of the advantages related with electric car conversion are referred below:

1. As the car conversion is do it yourself project, if you have appropriate knowledge about car mechanism you can easily change it without giving a singly penny to the mechanic for conversion.

2. You will not have to fill any type of petrol and stand in the queue for filling, but you can charge it at home without consuming much of your time and electricity.

3. There will be a decline in the level of emission generated by your existing car.

4. You will be able to drive at the speed of 65 miles an hour.

5. Finally the last but not the least, an interesting feature of the electric car is that it doesn’t make any type of sound while driving. Therefore, if you are irritated from the irritating sound of your existing car, then converting it will get you relaxed from this problem also.
