Summer is ending. The time to kick back, drink caipirinhas and listen to Will Smith is almost over. In my hometown of Detroit, we have a tradition of ending the summer by driving classic cars up and down a famous street, cranking some Whitesnake, and drinking some brews. It’s called the Woodward Dream Cruise and anyone with a working car that was cool at some point in the last 100 years will be there.
The muffler is one of the easiest ways to add class and style to your vehicle. The rotating six-shooter adds a touch of the old West along with a whole lot of noise. Add it to the side of your lime green Ford Fiesta for a Last Starfighter-type machine gun turret.
If you want to alter the muffler, but don’t want to be so ostentatious, try out this classic from the 1920s. The whistle on the muffler puts out some smooth jazz tones to perk up your morning and put a hop into your step. It’s like Kenny G is sitting next to you on the way to work. Bubb Rubb would be proud…whoo, whoo!
As anyone knows, drinking and driving is bad. Seriously, don’t do it. However, watching people drink is perfectly ok. So why not install an entertainment system into the back of your classic car, giving your passengers uninterrupted access to all the advertising they could wish for. More John Madden please.
The sun is shining, the air is warm, and your classic car is calling your name. Only, you have a little tyke to take care of. Why not add this bubble seat? Now you can enjoy your Sunday drive without the neighbors calling Child Protective Services. Feel free to add side vents for all-natural air ventilation on those scorching hot days.
For those of use who think four wheels are unnecessary, there is the three wheeled car. Stability and handling, who needs that? The perfect segue way into motorcycles, the three wheeled car comes in death trap black or blood stained red.
So you’re slowly grinding through the traffic of the Dream Cruise. You aren’t going fast enough for your muffler to whistle and people are laughing at your lack of a fourth wheel. Good thing you were prepared and added a propeller to your car. Now you can fly away faster than someone on the Jersey Shore can take their shirt off.
