Can you believe that we’ve all been working together on the Carnival of Wheels for TEN editions already? It seems like we’ve only done a couple so far. I say we, because this puppy really is a group effort. Firstly, there is all the car bloggers who work hard to put together posts to submit each week. Some weeks, I’ve had more than 15 to read through, you’d be amazed how long that takes to read and comment on that many posts. Most importantly, there are the readers. Without you, none of our work would be worthwhile. Fortunately, we must be doing something right, as the readers keep coming back each week to get their fill. So, not wanting to disappoint, here we go…
At Driving Enthusiast, Jeff got all fired up about a post on TTAC earlier this week where Farago goes on about the whorification of the automotive media. Jeff takes the thought a few steps further when it comes to the challenges facing online media versus traditional print media.
Jeff actually submitted a bunch of articles this week, but I’m too tired to read them all today. You’ll just have to visit yourself and see what’s new.
GM has made some pretty smart marketing moves with their warranties lately. Chuck Russell sells cars for The General and he’s pretty happy about the new warranties GM is offering on used up cars. I’m sure they’ll make his job a whole bunch easier.
At the down under garage, Craig has been on a roll with the brake how-to’s lately. This week he’s explained the mysteries of brake disc resurfacing.
Those guys at Wisebread are becoming regulars here in the CoW, with all sorts of advice on how to save some cash while driving. This week’s topic? Wrap it up Johnny! No, it’s not love advice for your teenager, but a way to drive a free car. Sounds pretty cool to me.
Brian from RaceDriven is fueling his passion for racing this week with a discussion on alternate fuels and their place in NASCAR. Come on Brian, those turds have only just discovered unleaded! If they were to start playing with Hydrogen, it would be like 44 Hindenburgs circling the track just waiting for a place to ignite! Brian also thinks they should institute the instant on yellow dash light for when a caution is thrown. Great idea!
And that’s it for Edition #10 of the Carnival of Wheels. Be sure to visit our Submissions page with your posts for next week. As always, the CoW will be up next Sunday.
