New Beemer kisses a pole.

This 2007 BMW 750 is going to need a heep of parts to get it back on the road. Truthfuly, I don't think that anyone in their right mind will even dream about repairing this one. This is most likely destined for the auto parts yard.

The auction in North Carolina had a few of these high end cars today. I will look out for the price next time so I can post it here. Wondering how much it sold for.

Finding Used Auto Parts Online

Actually finding a used part online for your car is very simple if you know where to look. From looking on Yahoo Answers site and the emails and questions I get, there are a lot of people that are having a hard time finding the parts they are looking for. I thought this was common knowledge but I was wrong. So this post is my attempt to make it common knowledge. is it. This site is the most usefull used auto parts locator on the internet. If you go to their site you will see that you can enter the criteria into the form, click Search and you have an extensive list of parts that you can filter through by price, location, description, etc.

The nice thing is that you can sort the search by location, where you will get a list of salvage yards and auto parts suppliers in your town that carry your part.

I have used this site for over 6 years and it is still the most powerful used auto parts locator tool.

Trademark Infrigement

Opened up my email this morning and got a not-so-pleasant surprise.

SATA wants my domain, because I infringed on their trademark. This domain -, was a good domain, good traffic producer. Haven't made a cent from it but nevertheless, was fun to own a good domain. When I got it I didn't even think about the trademark issue. I guess I should have.

Oh well, next time I'll think twice before getting a domain that has a trademark in it.

So remember 2 things boys and girls, 1 - is closed and 2 - Don't buy a domain that has a trademark in it.

I think I heard a story about someone getting their mcdonaldssomethingsomething domain taken away by mcdonalds, so be careful about picking your domain.

1998 Toyota T100

Here's my Toyota T100. Finally done. This is the photo of what it looked like when I just bought it.

And here is the photo of it now.

To see more photos of the build go to I was going to use it as my shop truck but when I closed the shop this truck became my toy.

One Hot Looking 1967 Ford F100

So I'm done with this 1967 Ford F100. Was a lot of work. Soo many dents and peeling paint, scratches. So much blocking, sanding and smoothing out. It was quiet a job but ended up looking so hot.

We used a Lamborghini orange color:

Color Name: Arancio Atlas
Orange Metallic
PPG Code: *0058

Plus over the top of that we applied Radiance candy coat, well actually five coats. Five coats of clear and this baby is awsome looking.

Check out the complete "photo documentary" of this project at

I don't care if you are not into cars, you were obviously interrested enough to get this far, I am telling you this is awsome photos! I keep coming back to this page to look at this color. It is amaizing.

For this project I used one gallon of orange base coat for the body, one quart of cream base for the top, 3 quarts of PPG Radiance candy and one gallon of clear (the 4CR clear that I wrote about before, awsome clear).
