Pope Insurance Agency, Inc. Provides Classic Car Collectors with Tips on How to Stay Organized and Safe when Performing Restorations

Plainville, MA (PRWEB) January 17, 2013

Classic car collecting and restoring is a common hobby across the country. Just like the collector, each vehicle differs in its needs, which is what Pope Insurance Agency, Inc. understands due to its extensive experience in the antique car industry. The agents here want to make sure avid collectors are careful to avoid injuries, accidents, and potential damages to their precious cars after starting a new project.

Here are some safety tips to keep in mind when performing restorations:

    Formulating a restoration plan is one of the most important steps during this process. This way, stress can be avoided. Creating an organized plan can also reduce the risk of a failed project or injury along the way.
    Do a thorough inspection, going over the vehicle one section at a time. Take into account the condition of the body parts, interior, electrical, engine, exhaust, suspension, and frame.
    When planning to disassemble and reassemble an antique car, document the disassembling so confusion can be avoided upon reassembling. Write down some notes about how parts fit together, or take pictures and even video of the disassembling process.
    Restoring a car can be a dangerous undertaking if experience is lacking. This is why using the correct protective equipment such as ear plugs, safety glasses, leather gloves, etc. will help protect health and safety.
    Depending on what type of vehicle you are working on, whether it is one of the most common antique cars or a rare one, the number of parts used can vary, but also be numerous. Therefore, the ability to easily find any given part will be key to staying productive and maintaining safety.
    There may be situations when a professional will need to be hired to help get the work done. This can save time, but it may also save money.

It is important to take a realistic approach when embarking on a project to restore an antique car. Pope Insurance Agency, Inc. encourages collectors to shop around for parts, conduct research, and prepare an affordable budget over time to eventually come to a positive result.

A classic car is a huge investment, which is why the agency advises potential enthusiasts and current collectors to protect their vehicles first. By having their reliable muscle car insurance, they can help ensure their valuable possession is safe from covered mishaps.

Mob Fest ’29: The True Story Behind the Birth of Organized Crime

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 02, 2012

Just in time for the season premiere of the hit HBO show Boardwalk Empire, Bill Tonelli arrives on the scene with his brilliantly subversive Byliner Original Mob Fest 29: The Correct Story Behind the Birth of Organized Crime. Tonelli investigates the lengthy-standing myth of the mobs foundinga legendary week in May 1929 in which a whos who of American crime (Al Capone, Lucky Luciano, Meyer Lansky, and Frank Costello, amongst a lot of others) were said to have assembled in Atlantic City, the hedonistic Playground of America, to make peace and divvy up the countrys illegal enterprises.


But what truly occurred that criminally star-studded week on the Jersey Shore? At this informal summit, mobster bosses allegedly gathered to invent the idea of organized crime in America. Prohibition had transformed all of them from two-bit thugs into underworld bigwigs, and they had a vested interest in keeping illicit booze flowing effortlessly across state lines. In Atlantic City, these hoods played as tough as they workedif indeed they worked at all. As legend has it, writes Tonelli, as a lot of as thirty leading gangsters [enjoyed] wild parties and heroic feasts, with fancy ladies provided for any who hadnt brought his own. In brief, this was absolutely nothing like the office meetings you and I have been made to attend.


How a lot of of these accounts are actually true, and why do they differ wildly in their retelling? Did the mobsters truly wheel about the Boardwalk in rolling chairs, smoking cigars and cutting offers? Did they threaten 1 yet another in swank conference rooms in the Ritz-Carlton? Did they force Al Capone, fresh from the St. Valentines Day Massacre in Chicago, to turn himself in to the cops in order to take the heat off everyone else? And what about the infamous photo of Nucky Johnsonthe benevolent but undisputed king of Atlantic City, much better recognized as Nucky Thompson on Boardwalk Empirestrolling the boards arm in arm with Capone? Was this a staged shoot caught by early paparazzi or a Prohibition-era Photoshop job created to ignite conspiracy theories that would thrive for years to come?


At a time when the early mob days are all the rage, Tonelli sifts the details from the malarkey and in so undertaking shows that when it comes to the birth of organized crime, a great lie is hard to beat.



Bill Tonelli has written about the mob for the New York Instances, Slate, and Philadelphia magazine. He is the author of The Incredible Story of the Tonelli Family in America and editor of The Italian American Reader and was an editor at Esquire, Rolling Stone, and Condé Nast Portfolio.
