But, do you know where hot rods got their start or the reason folks started customizing their vehicles? In this week’s blog, we will talk about the history of the hot rod.

The Prohibition During the prohibition era of the 1920s and 30s, the demand for illegal booze was big business. Big city gangsters paid small town moonshine brewers to provide them homemade alcohol. Of course, it didn’t take long for the government to take notice. The government sent out Federal Agents, known as “Revenuers” or “G-Man”.

How to Protect Your Car from Summer Elements

Image
Summer officially starts in just a few days. We are always excited to see summer come and we can get out our classic cars and muscle cars for a cruise. Just like spring, fall, and winter, the summer months can also be harsh to our rides. That’s why in this week’s blog, Farm Boy Garage will give you some helpful tips on how to protect your car from the summer elements.

Keep Your Car Covered Especially in the early summer, we can see some strong storms, heavy rain, and tornados. With the storms, we often see trees uprooted, falling limbs, and hail. All these things can be detrimental to our classic cars, trucks and muscle cars. So, while you are out in your car, always pay attention to where you park. If possible, find a parking garage to keep the car under cover. If no covered parking is available, take a car cover along. While a car cover will not protect from falling limbs or hail is will keep the car protected from small debris and hopefully save your paints finish in a mild storm.
