How much is too much to drink? It depends on a lot of things, such as body size, sex, how fast you’ve drunk, and what you ate before or during drinking. Most states consider legal intoxication to be a blood alcohol level of 0.80% or more; however, in many states you can still be arrested and convicted even with a blood alcohol level of less than this.
There are many ideas constantly floated to deal with the issue of DUIs, and since the cost every year of alcohol-related crashes is more than $59 billion, it’s in everyone’s best interests to minimize drunk driving. The sad truth is that drivers with a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or higher that are involved in a fatal crash are six times more likely to have been convicted of a DUI at more »
The car. It is a statement in America of the open road. A person driving behind the wheel of the car. Air whipping his or her hair back. Sunglasses masking their eyes from the glare of the sun. The ability to go anywhere in America, on their own terms. The ability to see the country, to stop at destinations, to see the world.
Since then, the car has lost some of its luster. Back when the car was first invented, few people could afford it. It was a privilege of the rich and the wealthy. Then slowly, more and more people were able to buy a vehicle. There are situations in which the vehicle became less pricey. More and more had a car and soon it beca more »

You want a party. It’s going to be a big party, with lots of friends. You want to live the high life and show people a good time. This party, which is going to be phenomenal, needs to come with the boundaries. There will be fun but not too much fun. And there will be a safe way to get around.
The limo is something that is seen often in movies and more rarely in real life. A limo is a stretch vehicle, where the driver is up front and the passengers are in a long section in the back. The long section in the back often has drinks and food. It is the ride for a party, often used during prom or other events.
It can be a staple of New Year’s Eve. Or St. Patrick’s day. The limo is a safe way to get around. It also conveys a sense of grandeur and sophistication. There are some statistics worth noting about li more »
Did you know that a study has shown that 84% of consumers indicate that they would like to buy a car in person? That’s likely not a surprise, as there are many good reasons to check out both new and used vehicles before you buy. That’s why local car dealers are an important part of any purchase you are looking to make. If you are looking for something specific, but are having trouble finding the right ride, a dealer of used cars might be able to source your desired vehicle from elsewhere more »
There was a moment in most every child’s life when his family will decide to take a long vacation to another state or somewhere at least 50 miles away. The child might be excited at such an adventure; after all, the child will wonder where they are going, what sights they will see along the way. The child will likely be happy to see another part of the world.
In 2017, 35% of Americans are planning to take a vacation 50 miles or more away from home with two or more immediate family members. And compared to 2016, 10% more families are expected to take road trips in 2017. That’s a big difference and shows that more families are deciding to travel together and achieve some much needed family time.
Families are loath to travel with each other in some cases as traveling can grate on all the f more »
While your first car might have been a family hand-me-down (thanks older sis!), you might want to think about investing in a new muscle car. A “muscle car” is a term used to describe high-performance, American-made cars. In fact, Merriam-Webster defines “muscle cars” as “any of a group of American-made 2-door sports cars with powerful engines designed for high-performance driving.” So sure, your older sis’ soccer mom van might have gotten you around a college campus, but it might be time to visit an auto dealership.
It’s totally okay to buy a pre-owned vehicle as well. In fact, in 2015, manufacturer certified used cars sales reached 2.55 million units and in 2016, that number increased to 2.6 million more »
Are you looking for a Shelby Cobra kit for sale? These kits are available from Cobra kit car manufacturers which only offer authentic replications. Since you want your Cobra to be authentic, this is where you’ll find the best Cobra car kits.
You’re probably aware that Carroll Shelby built 654 small-block Cobras from 1962 to 1968. During that time period, he also built about 350 big-block versions. Even though his original AC Cobras were designed to be “Corvette-Beaters,” they weighed considerably less than the Chevrolet Corvette. In fact, they weighed in at nearly 500 pounds less.
In 1964, the AC Cobra Coupe went for a test drive on a British motorway. At this time, it reached 186 miles per hour, which def more »
Many people are mindful of how tidy they keep their vehicles. From floor mates to custom car carpet and leather seats, there are many features inside vehicles that tend to attract dust and other debris. That doesn’t even include the air pollution drifting in through the windows, infecting the air inside a car or truck. But did you know that vehicles are actually typically dirtier than homes, or that the lane you drive in could impact the quality of air in your car or truck? What about the carpet in your vehicle? Did you know you can purchase replacement carpet to keep your ride looking brand new?
Let’s start with air quality. There’s nothing worse than getting stuck behind a mammoth of a truck spewing thick clouds of smelly black more »
You have rarely seen your teenage son so excited, but ever since his school schedule changed at semester he has come home full or energy. So much energy, in fact, that he sits down and takes care of his homework every day as soon as he gets home. With talk of stainless steel hose clamps and other things that were not even in his vocabulary a month ago, your son is excited to tell you about his day in his industrial arts class and is anxious to finish his home work so that he can head out to the garage. Between time working with both his father and his grandfather, your son hopes that the addition of the industrial arts class will provide him the skills that he needs to get hired on by a repair shop.
The fact that his grandfather used to o more »
