Insuring A Modified Car

The London-based beatthatquote.com is an online price-comparison service, and it did some research and figured out that modifying a vehicle could lead to a 171 percent rise in its insurance. That huge number reflects a markup in the premium with a lowered suspension. The "bargain" markups were 25 percent for a spoiler and 50 percent for tinted windows.

$5.5 Million Auction Sale: It's a Record

The car: Carroll Shelby's personal Cobra 427 Supersnake owned by Harley Cluxton III
The place: Barrett-Jackson Auction
The cash: $5.5 millionThe bucks brought in on this car broke a previous B-J record by $1.5 million. So you may be floored to learn that just a week prior to this sale, Meguiar's was called in. The car had been recently painted, but because the refinished aluminum body had swirls, scratches, and slight sanding marks, it needed a fixer-upper. Meguiar's used its new Solo "One Liquid" System to restore the shine. Hot Rims Mag & Aluminum Polish and Hot Shine Tire Gel were also swiped on to gloss things up further. Not a bad business card.

What Would Wheels Do?

Don't waste your time looking for Jesus to show up in potato chips or window frost. MHT Wheels is carrying the Dub Blessinem wheel for cars and trucks (in 22- and 24-inch sizes), so the religious experience can be right out in the driveway. We'd still charge for admission.
