Daytona Beach Florida – Jeep Beach is a week-long, city-wide event; the nation’s largest Jeep Only event held in Daytona Beach, this year on April 22nd - 27th. During Monday night’s kickoff “Jeep trail-gate” party, IASCA will produce the first ever Jeepcentric Soundoff and JeepGlo lighting competitions. IASCA and Soundcrafters’ principal Paul Papadeas said: “After Soundcrafters’ participation last year, we became fast friends with Jeep Beach producers Charlene and Kurt Greer. We suggested producing an IASCA competition during this, the next event, and the Greers were most excited to accommodate. Adding the car audio promotional element to the event is a natural. Jeepers (as owners are called) are most viable consumers”. With the Soundoff held at the ESPN Rated Daytona Stadium, IASCA has modified its SQ judging rules to accommodate the Jeep’s unique acoustical environment. In the vast expanse of the stadium’s lots, a “no holds barred” audio demo area will be allowed; there are no … [Read More...]

As a driver, you’re probably familiar with the high car insurance prices. The high costs can be explained by the large cash settlements offered by insurers—they cover the injured driver’s medical treatments as well as the lawyers they retain—but it’s not without good reason. In general, the price you pay gives you access to a greater range of advantages. While the exact amount you’ll need to pay depends on the type and age of your car, where you’re located and the laws, your driving record and your insurance claims history, the type of coverage you choose also plays a big role. So it’s a good idea to study your options before purchasing or renewing your car insurance, and to understand what benefits accompany different alternatives. 1.

The car culture in the US has always been about customization. A young man who owned a hot rod didn’t buy it brand new from the manufacturer. He would buy the car, strip it down, and modify it to his own liking. That’s how the car culture began. Even though cars are now a mass-market thing, there are enthusiasts around who prefer to customize their vehicles. Here are 9 best custom-built cars from 1952 to this day. The Orbitron Image Source The Orbitron was built back in 1964 by Ed Roth. It’s powered by a Chevrolet V8 engine and Powerglide transmission. Ed Roth built the frame himself using 2x4 inch tubes. The car may look like the future itself, but its creator was disappointed with it. The thing is, this great exterior hides a chromed engine and original chassis. But if it did show the engine, it would have a very different look. If you didn’t think the look of the car tells you a lot about how people in the 1960s envisioned the future, take a look at the … [Read More...]

There’s nearly 40 million car used car exchanges done every year between dealerships and private parties. This means that you have plenty of options when it comes to choosing the right dealer. However, dealers won’t tell you everything about the car and you to do some testing yourself. Below is a few things that you should do before you purchase a pre-owned car. Have a List of Your Preferred Models Growing up as a car fanatic has taught me one major thing about cars – brands compete with each other for the market.
