Hazel Green, United States - September 21, 2018 /PressCable/ —

Airkooled Kustoms, an internationally recognized classic Volkswagen restoration and customization shop, announces its twelfth annual car show, Low Down in Dub Town. The event will be held on the shop grounds in Hazel Green, Alabama on Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Gates open at 8:00 a.m. for a day of family-friendly fun. The event is free to the public, featuring an engine blow, car contest, tech talks, and food vendors. Guests can tour the car restoration shop, meet the Airkooled Kustoms Krew to ask questions about classic Volkswagens and Porsches, shop for classic car t-shirts, and help support our nation’s veterans through the Train a Dog, Save a Warrior charity.

Guests can purchase tickets for our annual engine blow 50/50 at registration. The Airkooled Kustoms krew has been hard at work bringing an unsalvageable engine back to life long enough for this highly-anticipated event. At 2:30 p.m., the engine will roar to life, and a timer will mark the seconds or minutes between ignition and complete and catastrophic engine failure. The 50/50 winner will be the ticket-buyer who guessed the time closest to the official engine failure time. The proceeds of the 50/50 will go to support Train a Dog, Save a Warrior.

“Here on the Darkside, we hold Liberty pretty dear to our hearts – and have tremendous gratitude for the men and women in our armed forces who sacrifice so much to ensure it,” said Eric “Spook” LeClair, Founder of Airkooled Kustoms. We also love our pups. So when we learned about this organization through our shop manager, Geoff and his service dog Keoki, we wanted to help. Seeing the bond between man and beast, and recognizing how the support of a well-trained service animal can change lives, we’re proud to make TADSAW this year’s charity. Donations from registration and the engine blow 50/50 will help TADSAW train dogs to help warriors live full, productive lives after giving so much of themselves in service of our great nation.”

There is no entry fee for show cars, but pre-registration on the shop’s website is requested. Local classic Volkswagen enthusiasts are encouraged to enter their vehicles for a chance to be awarded a crowd favorite trophy, designed and built by Rodney Culp.

Airkooled Kustoms is located at 458 Guy Wilson Road, (431/231 North to Pauline Drive, then straight onto Guy Wilson Road). For more information about the event, please visit Airkooled Kustoms online at: www.AirkooledKustoms.com or call (256) 828-2123.

Researchers come face to face with huge great white shark

Jan 20, 2019

HALEIWA, Hawaii — Two shark researchers who came face to face with what could be one of the largest great whites ever recorded are using their encounter as an opportunity to push for legislation that would protect sharks in Hawaii. Ocean Ramsey, a shark researcher and conservationist, told The Associated Press that she encountered the 20-foot (6-meter) shark Tuesday near a dead sperm whale off Oahu. The event was documented and shared on social media by her fiancé and business partner Juan Oliphant. The Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources said it was aware of photos of the great...

Hyundai, Kia recall vehicles due to increased fire risk

Jan 20, 2019

DETROIT — Despite a government shutdown, Hyundai and Kia are moving ahead with a recall of about 168,000 vehicles to fix a fuel pipe problem that can cause engine fires. The problem stems from improper repairs during previous recalls for engine failures. The affiliated Korean automakers have been dogged by fire and engine failure complaints from across the nation. They're both under investigation by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which has been trying to figure out whether initial recalls covered enough vehicles. But the agency is mostly closed due to the shutdown. In addition to the recall, each...

Sinclair debuts streaming service for its local TV stations

Jan 20, 2019

NEW YORK — Sinclair Broadcast wants to "Stirr" up streaming. The nation's largest owner of television stations launched a free, ad-supported streaming service Wednesday drawing on local news, sports and other programs from the 191 TV stations it owns in 89 U.S. markets. Sinclair said the motivation behind Stirr is in part to help viewers "access the local news and lifestyle programming that is relevant to their everyday life." Sinclair was admonished by media watchdogs in April after the sports news service Deadspin pieced together clips of dozens of TV anchors for Sinclair reading from the same script. The script...

Robot recreates the walk of a 290-million-year-old creature

Jan 20, 2019

WASHINGTON — How did the earliest land animals move? Scientists have used a nearly 300-million-year old fossil skeleton and preserved ancient footprints to create a moving robot model of prehistoric life. Evolutionary biologist John Nyakatura at Humboldt University in Berlin has spent years studying a 290-million-year-old fossil dug up in central Germany's Bromacker quarry in 2000. The four-legged plant-eater lived before the dinosaurs and fascinates scientists "because of its position on the tree of life," said Nyakatura. Researchers believe the creature is a "stem amniote" — an early land-dwelling animal that later evolved into modern mammals, birds and reptiles. Scientists...

No-shows for auto shows? Detroit and others aim to retool

Jan 20, 2019

DETROIT — At first glance, this year's edition of the North American International Auto Show might look like any other from the past: gleaming vehicles, bright lights and flashy displays trying to lure spectators to their offerings. But after traversing Cobo Center's massive exhibition space and ticking off the automakers, you'll notice what's not there: namely BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Audi or Mazda. Those brands had been mainstays of the Motor City's celebration of the auto industry, which opens to the public on Saturday. But they are pulling out not just from Detroit but shows worldwide because of a bad date...
