Install Xenon HID Lights in your Vehicle for High Illumination & Low Cost

A somewhat pioneering technology in lighting has arrived at the scene in the form of Xenon HID lights that have given traditional Halogen lights a run for their money. Xenon lights are better in every aspect than Halogens. They are more cost and energy-efficient and last even ten times longer. Five times more light is also generated by Xenon HID lights. If the popularity of Xenon bulbs continues like this, you’ll soon find Halogen bulbs missing from automobile headlights.

Xenon HID… Continue

The Latest Fad: Build a Muscle Car that can handle!

Hi VRLers,

Welcome to my blog post! Over the 4th of July weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Heartland Nationals Good Guys show in Des Moines. It was a huge show - cars (and people) were everywhere. I took my family along and we had a great time - especially watching muscle cars at the autocross! Without a doubt, the biggest trend happening in the industry today is getting our old cars to do things they originally hated to do - handle well!…
