New New Jersey Inspection rules

New NJ inspection rules
 
Are you a vehicle owner in the state of NJ?  New Jersey no longer checks basic safety items during the biennial inspection of passenger vehicles. Vehicles that are from MY 1995 and older with a gross vehicle weight of less than 8500 lbs. now are no long required to be inspected at all.   It is now up to you as the vehicle owner to properly maintain all of your safety and emission components on your car.  This is a quote directly from the NJ MVC website.

When is it time for a new car?

One question that comes up repeatedly in the car repair business is “ Do you think it’s time for a new car?”  This question usually comes up just after someone has spent a good chunk of money on a large repair and now is faced with another looming expensive repair.  The thought of continuously dumping money into an older car month after month gets people thinking a new car payment may be less in the long run and I would have a new car with no issues and a warrantee.  With proper maintenance and repairs when needed almost any car can be kept on the road for many many years.  So what would be the killer failure that would render your car up for replacement?  One thought comes to mind and that is rust.  Any rust that compromises the overall structure of the vehicle will make it unsafe to drive and much less safe in a crash as the structure will not protect the passengers as the engineers intended.  Rust repair when done correctly is very expensive and can quickly overtake the value of the car itself.  Replacement or rebuilds of large components like the engine and transmission can also be very expensive.  The bottom line here is what works best for you financially.  Remember to always do all of the service at the intervals mapped out in your owner’s manual to get the longest life possible out of you vehicle in the first place.  Never put off servicing main safety items like tires, brakes and suspension.  It doesn’t make much sense to compromise your safety on the road to save a few bucks.  One of the main advantages to going with a new or newer model vehicles is advanced design.  Newer cars are cleaner, safer and more efficient with every passing model year, interior comfort and convenience has also improved vastly over the past few years.  On the other hand there is always a certain amount of pride in ownership of an older car that you maintained and cared for decades, some even consider an old car part of the family.  So what’s it going to be? New or stick with the old car? , it’s up to you.

Tomorrow's collector cars

Overlooked affordable collector cars
 
Do you want to get into the collector car hobby and have limited funds? There are plenty of currently undesirable or overlooked future collector cars out there that can be had for a bargain basement price now. Think about today's most sought after collector cars like big block muscle cars and exotic sports cars, there was a time when these were just used cars that sold in the classifieds of your local paper barley notice. There is really no sure fire way of determining what cars will shoot up in value in the future, but a few basic rules seem to apply historically.

Product review

I don’t normally do product reviews here, but when I find something that works well form me in the shop environment I feel I should pass along that information.  In the shop keeping my hands, tools, customers cars and just about anything I touch clean is very important. Lately I have been using Monk Mechanics Hand Cleaner 3-D Textured Towels. They come in one of those plastic containers that you can pull up and rip off a single towel when needed.  The towel itself has sort of honeycomb texture to it and is very durable, its also moist with a pleasant scented cleaner.
