Ryobi 18V One+ Power Inflator Title Image

Ryobi 18V One+ Power Inflator

Recently I tested the Ryobi 18V One+ Dual Function Inflator/Deflator to pump up the tires on my project cars, but found it too large to fit in the Cobalt SS/SC for extended road trips.

To remedy that issue, I picked up their handheld, trigger operated Power Inflator.

Check out this review to see how well the Ryobi 18V One+ Power Inflator performed on my most recent road trip into Glacier National Park.

Ryobi 18V One+ Dual Function Inflator/Deflator

I've needed a convenient way to pump up the tires on my cars for years, but haven't ever gotten around to doing anything about it.

The persnickety nature of the Cobalt's tires have finally gotten me to do the deed and I chose this Ryobi 18V One+ Dual Function Inflator/Deflator to do it.

Read on to see how well it performed.

Motoring: The Highway Experience in America

Motoring

The automobile has had a permanent influence on America.

From its very beginnings at the tail end of the 19th century up to today, it has shaped and been shaped by the world it serves.

In Motoring: The Highway Experience in America, academics and authors John A. Jakle and Keith A. Sculle explore the significant role the automobile has had in shaping the American landscape, including the largest built structure on the planet: America's interstate highway system.

Go for a drive back in time with Motoring as the authors take you on a tour of the forces that shaped the automobile, our roads, and the very foundations of modern America, itself.

The Complete Ultimate Factories Car Collection

Ultimate Factories

I haven't found a series that does a better job illuminating the subject of manufacturing than National Geographic's Ultimate Factories.

When you restore or customize your ride, it's difficult to do it well if you don't understand where it came from or how it was put together. If your serious about your hobby and it involves being hip deep in your car's parts, then Ultimate Factories is a must-see.

Although this is a review of the series, it's also a guide that references every single episode I could find with a perspective geared specifically towards the automotive enthusiast.

Check it out and enjoy!
