Classic Custom Car Market EvaporateS
By Motor Mike
any people will point to the advent of airbags to raise and lower a car as the mainstream beginning of automobile customization, and it was truly the beginning of an era. However, the customization invention will probably have to go to the 1950’s when you drilled a hole in your exhaust system, threaded in a toggle activated spark plug and suddenly had exhaust flames ‘on demand’. That’s the real beginning. It’s those youngsters we can thank for thinking outside the box when it comes to our car. Many kids of that era couldn’t even afford a car, much less customization. Years later they were married
with children, a minivan parked in the driveway and maybe, just maybe a sports car. But the yearning for the old times remained. The 90’s came along, 401k’s, stocks, technology start-ups and a new economy. Those kids from the 50’s had well paying careers, equity in their homes, cash in the bank and a little extra to finally get
Values are currently less than 50% invested with no sign of an upswing. their dream 50’s era car. The market on classics jumped, as suddenly everyone who ever wanted a 1957 Chevy had the means to get one. The next logical step was
customization, to fulfill those childhood dreams. Shops for customization were everywhere, and in everyone’s garage, to make theirs ‘THE one’. Ten years later, with the dream realized and the wife complaining about how much money he sunk into the beast, they’re being dumped, one by one. Moaning and groaning the whole way down. Don’t get me wrong, cream puffs, or un-customized classics are still here to stay but the customized cars have seen their day. Values are currently less than 50 percent of investment with no sign of an upswing.

Blasts From The Past Audi R8 5.2 & Mercedes-Benz SLS
Written by Lyndon Conrad Bell
ithout question, the fiercest rivalry in pre-war Grand Prix racing was between Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union.
Ferdinand Porsche stepped forward and convinced Hitler to split the money between Auto Union and Mercedes-Benz.
500+ horsepower engines, and top speeds well in excess of 200 miles per hour in their ultimate iterations, the cars absolutely dominated Grand Prix racing until 1939â€“when World War II started.
While both cars echo the past, they also reflect the state of the art.
Adolf Hitler, in his determination to demonstrate the superiority of everything German, offered 500,000 Reichmarks (about $3,000,000) to any German racing team willing to run the 1934 Grand Prix season. Mercedes-Benz was at the top of the list, until
The result was the most advanced racing machines the world had ever seen. With streamlined bodies,
Mercedes used a frontengine design; Auto Union, under Porscheâ€™s guidance, used a midengine design. Flashforward 76 years, MercedesBenz and Auto Union (now known as Audi) are still producing cars remarkably like those amazing Grand Prix machines, except now, for the street.
Automotive Street Style | April 2010 | On The Cover
Audi’s mid-engine R8 and the front-engine MercedesBenz SLS are, in many ways, the spiritual successors to those all-conquering racing machines. In addition to sharing the drivetrain configuration and engine output of their ancestral forebears, both cars represent the pinnacle of each brand’s offerings. In other words, while both cars echo the past, they also reflect the state of the art. The R8’s 5.2-liter V10 engine generates 525 horsepower and 391 ft-lbs of torque. Combined with Audi’s lightweight aluminum space frame construction, and Quattro all-wheel drive, the R8 5.2 accelerates to 60 in 3.7 seconds and goes on to a top speed of 196 miles per hour. The Mercedes 6.3-liter V8 is the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 engine
currently in production. Making 563 horsepower and 479 ft-lbs of torque, the engine propels the SLS to 60 in 3.7 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 197 miles per hour. Cutting edge componentry like a dual-clutch sevenspeed gearbox, ceramic brake rotors, allaluminum construction, and computer controlled traction and stability controls, make the SLS spec sheet a veritable recipe for cutting edge high performance. Similarly, the Audi ‘s active aerodynamics, lightweight construction, automated
manual transmission, direct fuel injection, and magnetic suspension system, demonstrate what can still happen when these two automakers put their minds to building the most advanced car the world has ever seen.
s a Pastor many people are intrigued when they find out that I like watching UFC. They cannot comprehend how a minister can be into a combat sport like UFC. Or that I talk about it in my messages at The Church at South Las Vegas. Or that Wanderlei Silva “The Axe Murderer” worships at my church.
The Bible says in Romans 8:37 “…we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us”.
However I am quick to point out that UFC did not start with Dana White but rather with Jesus Christ. Over 2,000 years ago Jesus came down to earth to become the Ultimate Fighting Champion. Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil and to free us from the chains of sin and spiritual death. That on the cross, it looked as if Jesus Christ was defeated by the devil! But we all know that a championship Fight lasts five rounds. Jesus was crucified

and buried on Friday but on Sunday Jesus Christ Rose from the dead. Now that Christ has risen we can now rise up ourselves. That our lives can be filled with supernatural power to overcome any challenges that come our way. We no longer have to live life as victims of circumstance but we can rise up and be more than conquerors! The Bible says in Romans 8:37 “…we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us”. Live life today as a warrior who overcomes obstacles. You can turn to Jesus and He will give you a brand new start and life today. Benny Perez Lead Pastor www.thechurchlv.com
“When I first move to America from Brazil, I felt alone and was looking for a Pastor like my Pastor at home. Attending The Church at South Las Vegas, I find that Pastor Benny’s messages are serious, fun and they direct the heart toward the true message of God. I am so happy to have Pastor Benny as my pastor now”. “Thank you Pastor Benny”. - Wanderlai Silva

Celebrity Garage KIM KARDASHIAN April 1st, 2010
So Kim Kardashian really is a car girl — that’s not just an act.
nly a true car chick would intentionally increase the value of an expensive luxury vehicle like a Bentley by putting a kit around it and fitting it with aftermarket rims and tires. The average price of a Bentley is around $200,000. Kim’s Bentley is probably worth $20k more now. Kim and Reggie are becoming one of Hollywood’s classiest couples. She’s a party diva building a brand around herself and he’s now won a Super Bowl championship ring! Kim Kardashian had a little run-in with a motorcycle back in March that put her brand new Bentley into the body shop for some serious repair. Well, like they predicted, Platinum Motorsport hooked it up and the style is fresher than her White and Pink Range Rover that they also hooked up!

Henderson International Reading Week
he JYD project’s Jerome “Junk Yard Dog” Williams has been involved in the NBA’s Read to Achieve program since 1997, when he played for the Detroit Pistons. Mr. Williams has always encouraged youth to develop a passion to read. After playing nine years in the NBA with Detroit, Chicago, Toronto & New York, JYD continues to keep his reading campaign alive. This month he visited Henderson International School’s 2nd Grade to show how the DoggPound loves to READ! “ The
books you read, give you the knowledge you need, so join the reading team, and get in the league, if you believe than you can achieve, sometimes you need to pick up a book and read” said JYD. “We wish to thank you for your wonderful gift of
time, that it took to read, gift of joy, because you brought us happiness!!! And, last, but never least, you made reading an event to remember, a moment to cherish, and gave us a tune to live by!” - Ms. Whited’s Class
“Dear Mr. Williams, Thank you for reading to us and singing the rap song I loved it” - Elizabeth (2nd Grader)
