Night time driving

So I do a lot of nighttime driving, particularly on road trips. recently I drove from Phoenix to Seattle and back (3,000 mile round trip). I suffer from glare and fatigue issues and night, and have been searching for a good pair of glasses. I found these on Amazon and I have to say they work great!

Hurricane Sandy Cars

As we saw with Katrina and other storms, there's a rather sketchy market out there scrubbing car titles and reselling salvaged classic cars that were ruined during Hurricane Sandy last year. We've seen some MGs and other marques popping up on EBay in the past weeks.

So right now, if the price sounds too good, please be careful. A tell tale sign is cars with New Hampshire titles. It's relatively easy to scrub a title in NH. Ask for ownership information, and history on the car. Since many of our cars do not have the modern long VIN # you won't be able to look them up via one of the Vin Check websites.

As with buying anything in this world, caveat emptor. If the price sounds too good then you should be very skeptical.
