Hello, and welcome to Rusted and Rebuilt.
This blog will be covering various aspects of the automotive culture. We will be going over topics such as the importance of preventative maintenance, the significance of cars in our everyday lives, and how to make your daily commute more enjoyable.
Mechanical knowledge is extremely important to have, especially when it can save you from paying $500-1000 in repair bills at the local garage. By doing repairs and installations at home, you can save a lot of money, and have the peace of mind that the work was done correctly. It seems that self-driving cars are the way of the future, but those cars are still not going to fix themselves or stop themselves from rotting away. There are many great ways to keep your vehicle on the road, and out of the junk yard.
I have always been extremely passionate about custom car culture. My family and friends are all car freaks as well, so I am naturally drawn to anything with wheels and gears. Whether its a car, a truck, a motorcycle, or even a lawnmower, I want to know more about it. My father and I are currently in the middle of restoring an 1968 Checker Marathon, and it has been very interesting to see how 50 years of weather, corrosion, and improper maintenance can effect a vehicle, as well as how automotive technology has changed in both positive and negative ways.
I would like to share automotive knowledge and interest with as many people as possible. I believe everyone has a connection to automotive culture in their own way, whether you’re a NASCAR driver or a shuttle bus commuter. We rely on vehicles to get us where we need to go, which is why we need to be aware of both new and old technology in order to make our lives more efficient.
