    Sacramento County makes DIY vehicle repairs illegal

    This isn't entirely uncommon. Many laws are already on the books concerning working on cars in residential neighbourhoods. These laws are in place designed for making it illegal to run a repair service out of a garage in a residence. I'll be dammed if anyone tells me what kind of work I can...

    1958 Dodge Coronet 2-door Coupe

    I love the exterior color two tone. It looks decent but I couldn't buy that car without seeing it in person. Im also suspect of any car advertised with no underneath pictures. I love those fifties Mopars and if that car checked out, I had the space and some extra cash that car would be...
