Now that our 1960 Austin-Healey Bugeye Sprite project has been disassembled and media-blasted, one of the biggest challenges from here on out is keeping all of those loose pieces and parts organized. How do we do it?

We won’t spoil the video, but it's important to remember that organization is important for two reasons: Reassembly is simpler, and it's easier to see which parts you're missing. Presented by CRC Industries.

Video: Why This Porsche Is Actually a 901, Not a 911

What looks like a first-year 911, sounds like a first-year 911, and drives like a first-year 911? That’s right, the Porsche 901.

The Petersen Automotive Museum gives us an in-depth look at one of the very first 911s—an example from 1964—and explains why it is one of only a handful with a “901” designation.

After disassembling a project car, you should spend some time assessing the condition of those parts. Years of dirt, grime, paint and even body filler can easily obscure the true condition of the project.

We took our 1960 Austin-Healey Bugeye Sprite down to Blast Masters to get it media blasted. Why not just use sandpaper and some elbow grease? Media blasting offers a number of advantages, namely reduced risk of damaging the surfaces of those potentially rare and fragile components. Presented by CRC Industries.

Many people might think that disassembling that new project car is the easy part, but missteps in this early stage can quickly make your restoration more difficult later down the line.

Since we’ve restored a number of classic cars over the years, here is how we tackle the first step in the restoration process with our newly acquired 1960 Austin-Healey Sprite. Presented by CRC Industries.

Save for a little incident known as the Second World War, the 24 Hours of Le Mans has run every year since 1923. And although there are many endurance races on the calendar, winning the iconic race is a sure way to make ensure car and drivers make it into the history books.

If nothing else, it’s interesting to see the gradual evolution of the race car over the many years the race was held.

As well, which Le Mans winner from this list is your favorite?

Video: This 1957 Promotional Film Features Two Chevrolet Trucks Climbing Pikes Peak the Hard Way

Pikes Peak may currently have a fully paved road that reaches the peak, but that wasn’t the case back in 1957. At that time, the only way to the top involved a rough dirt road.

However, Chevrolet wanted to make the challenge of reaching the top of Pikes Peak even harder by having two of its production trucks make the climb without the use of any roads–like, at all.
