The Top 10 Things You Need To Know Before Buying A Lift

December 14th, 2009

It’s no fun spending a small bundle of moolah on what should be one of the best purchases of your life, only to be let down by the reality of an underpowered auto lift or a disreputable automotive equipment company. Here at BendPak, we hate it when we hear about fellow auto-enthusiasts getting burned by a bad deal. That’s why we devised the following checklist to help you avoid an unfavorable fate and get the car lift of your dreams.

Detroit Bros. Featured in New Discovery Channel Series

December 9th, 2009

Prepare to have something BIG to look forward to later this month. Dave and James Kaye of Detroit Bros. Custom Cycles are being featured in a new Discovery Channel series called Motor City Motors, to premiere December 28th.  The original series focuses on some of the most memorable, challenging and innovative builds ever witnessed on the small screen.

Motor City Motors brings the metal back to Detroit.

Dave and James Kaye started Detroit Bros. Custom Cycles in 2002 and built a name for themselves with cutting-edge, quality metalworking. However, due to the economic downturn, sales haven’t been quite what they were half a decade ago—a situation that a lot of the US can sympathize with. So they’re going to try their luck in front of the camera and bring some much needed attention back to their hometown of Detroit.

The stars of Motor City Motors

From the producer of such Discovery Channel hits as Deadliest Catch and Pitchmen, the first season of Motor City Motors is comprised of 13 hour-long episodes. This is as real as it gets.  The majority of the series takes place inside a leaky, rusty warehouse in south Detroit—NOT a sound stage in Hollywood, California.

All of us at BendPak / Ranger can’t wait to tune in. It’s exactly what the doctor ordered to drive away the post-holiday blues.

Jay Leno’s Garage Opens Doors, Jalopnik Gets Tour

By now, we’re sure it’s pretty obvious that we have a deep, abiding affection for Jay Leno. Aside from being a great entertainer, the man has a vast collection of drool-worthy vehicles that he not only drives and admires, but he also puts his own hands to work on. He also owns a veritable armada of BendPak car lifts.

So when we saw that auto-blog Jalopnik got to take the grand tour inside of Jay Leno’s Big Dog Garage, we were pretty jealous. But since they were kind enough to make their treasure trove of pictures from within those hallowed halls available to everyone via the internet, we can’t help but smile.
