For Sale: Authentic Barn Dust for your Classic Car

If you’re looking to get rid of an old car you got laying around, a Craiglist ad from Vancouver offers a foolproof way to increase your car’s value. We all know cars create more of a buzz when they’re “found” in a barn with some dust on them, and that buzz can get you more money on Bring a Trailer and a feature on YouTube. That’s where this Craiglist ad comes in…

What you get here, is original barn dust. Sprinkle liberally on car and instantly add $10-20,000 to the value of your heap parked in the garage or carport. For every 4 buckets you buy I will throw in the tire deflation kit at not extra cost. This completes the illusion , but wait, if you buy 6 or more buckets I will also give to you as a gift a story about an elderly person who used to own this car but passed away many years ago.

To take advantage of this incredible offer, check out the original posting here.

A Hoon’s-Eye View of the 2018 Rolex 24 at Daytona

The Rolex 24 at Daytona gets harder to survive each year. My third trip down to the Daytona International Speedway should have been the easiest one yet because the weather was almost perfect. It wasn’t very cold as it has been the last two years and it didn’t rain during the race for more than a few minutes, a far cry from last year. Despite all the odds for surviving the full 24 hours being in my favor, I only saw 18 of those this year. Something about it just felt tougher.

I’d imagine the drivers and teams felt the same way because this year’s Rolex 24 was one for the record books. With one less class in the running to mix things up, we only had four full course yellows during the entire race. That led to the previous distance record being broken in hour 23 with a new record of 808 laps later set by the winning car. That many laps at the pace today’s IMSA drivers set? Yeah, this one felt tougher.

As is tradition, here’s a photo recap of the action as I saw it through my lens.
