Scary movie vehicles

Since it is Halloween today I thought a list of my personal top 13 scary cars from the Movies and TV were in order.  See if you remember the movies some of these iconic cars came from.  Maybe you will be watching the movies tonight while you celebrate Halloween.  Many of these cars definitely look different from when they rolled off the assembly line.  The studios had to do a lot of modifying to get them to look so menacing.  So without further adieu, on with the list:

How did girls get so important at a Car Show?

NC roads

By Todd Schafer on January 22, 2014

North Carolina is the meca of fast cars and moonshine.  No wonder there are so many great driving opportunities in the 12th state to join the union.  Whether you’re looking to test out those new Bilstein shock absorbers, various other Honda parts, or simply looking for a nice scenic Sunday drive, North Carolina has a driving road that’ll peak any motorist’s interest.

The state has been known for its driving roads since the Prohibition Era, when moonshine runners would use the mountain roads to transport their illicit goods quickly and quietly. After Prohibition ended, the state became known for racing and still is. It’s the home to two major NASCAR tracks, Charlotte Motor Speedway and Rockingham Speedway, it has more NASCAR offices than any other state despite the company headquarters being based in Daytona Beach, Florida.
