You may not have even heard of the Hudson Hornet – the make hasn’t even been around since the early 50s, and was crowded out of the market by the Big Three from Detroit. The Hornet, however, left a pretty significant mark on automotive design and performance in its day.
Starting with the ’48 models, the Hornet incorporated a “step-down” design, with a dropped floor pan and chassis that lowered the car’s center of gravity and enhanced handling dramatically (it was also the industry’s first true unibody design). The edge in handling made the Hornet a natural for racing, and by ’51 the Hornet was available with the “7X” engine, a 308-cubic-inch flathead straight-six. The engine featured modifications like twin side-draft one-barrel carburetors, a split exha ...[more]Read More

Let’s face it – modern tire designs are much, much safer than the tires of a couple of generations ago. Rubber compounds are better, steel belted radials handle better and wear longer than older bias-ply tires, traction is better, tires are less prone to blowouts or failure, and performance during braking, acceleration and cornering is much improved over 60s- or 50s-era tires. Still, if you’re restoring a muscle car or vintage truck, you want tires that are appropriate as far as size and appearance for your vehicle (if it’s a British car, perhaps we should say “tyres”).
If you’ve got a vintage muscle car, the BF Goodrich Radial T/A is an excellent choice, with period-correct raised white letters and 22 sizes to choose from. The Radial T/A is a low-profile classic-look tire that benefits from modern design and manufa ...[more]Read More
Tires. If you own a car, you have probably bought a set of tires at some point in your life. You may have opted for the cheapest brand you could find, or selected an ultra high-performance tire to suit your cars‘ needs.
Now, there are many different sources for consumers these days. Whether they take a trip to their local repair shop to pick a tire, or search the many websites that offer discount tires, you really can’t go wrong. While a repair shop can provide you with information about the correct fitments for your vehicle and what tire would be best for your uses, they often are forced to charge a premium of their tire prices. On the other hand, many people have opted for buying tires online. This is another great way to fulfill your tire needs. You can research, shop, and then buy at usually a cheaper price then the store. However, you often lose some of those savings on shipping charges. But ...[more]Read More
