Make a New Year’s Resolution to be a Better Driver

Many of us have a list of things to improve when the New Year rolls around. Some choose to lose weight, exercise more or learn a new skill. As drivers, there are some resolutions we should always make to stay safe on the road. Here are some tips to keep you and your loves ones safe in 2018.

Great DIY Garage Improvements

If you spend a lot of time in the garage, it makes sense to turn it into a space that is not only functional, but comfortable. TV shows often focus on crazy, big-budget improvements, but the most useful (and budget-friendly) changes are pretty simple, even if they’re a little less flashy. If you’re looking to transform your garage, there’s a lot you can do on your own if you have the mind for it - and if you’re working with cars, you most likely do.

Classic Success

When Brian Smyth and Jason McClure were 14 years old, one of their favorite activities was to play tag among the cars in the recycling yard. Fast forward to adulthood and they’re still running around the yard - this time in a more official capacity, as co-owners of Desert Valley Auto Parts in Phoenix, Ariz. It’s been a journey propelled by a lifelong passion for cars and a powerful friendship.

Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey, a Category 4 storm, slammed Texas over the weekend of August 25 – 27. It made landfall on Friday between Port Arkansas and Port O’Connor, became a Category 1 storm by Saturday morning and was downgraded to a tropical storm by Sunday. Before Harvey was over, it made landfall twice more, hitting not only Texas, but Louisiana as well. Its effects will take years to recover from.

IRT 2017

Auto recyclers from around the world descended on Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada in early September for the 2017 International Roundtable on Auto Recycling (IRT). The event, held Sept. 6 - 8, 2017 at the Hilton Niagara Falls Hotel & Suites, was co-hosted by the Automotive Recyclers of Canada (ARC) and the Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA).
