Simoniz Auto Detailing Products & Chrome Car Antennas – An AutoAnything Weekly Update


Well, another week has passed. Here in California, the weather’s getting cooler and at 64 degrees Fahrenheit, the ocean is downright frigid! It makes it tough to surf, and somewhat chilly for scuba diving.  But Colorado’s seen a huge snowstorm, leaving several feet of fresh powder behind.  I’m sure a bunch of my friends are out at Vail cutting first tracks and demolishing pints… yes, I’m jealous.

But I can already smell the turkey that mom’s cooking in the oven, so that makes everything better…

Thanksgiving Turkey with all the Trimmings

You know what I also smell?  New product.

Simoniz Products – Simon says Simoniz all you need to make your car shine like new.  Even works great on rusted out 1982 Toyota Tercel’s… really, it does.

Chrome Car Antennas – Because some people just want a shinier place to put their Jack-in-the-Box Antenna Balls.
We also revamped some of our old shopping guides with a better layout, updated information and more detailed descriptions. So whether you’re trying to find the best detailing products, pick out some aftermarket lights, or you need help choosing the right car bra for your ride (hint: just like junior high, it’s probably the push-up bra), we’ve got you covered.
That’s it for now, check back later for your Friday Afternoon 5 O’Clock Countdown post.

Car Vacuums, Tonneau Covers & Light Bars – An AutoAnything Weekly Update


It only comes ‘round once a year, and we’ve all been anxiously awaiting its delivery. Finally, it’s September 4th—national Newspaper Carrier Day! Hey, Barney Flaherty, this morning we’re chucking something onto your lawn: a couple of soggy new products.

Smittybilt Light Bar

Smittybilt Street Light Bar

It looks a little like this with lights: 0000

It looks a little like this without lights: ____

Pretty boss.

Metro 500 Car Vac

Metropolitan 500 Hand Vacuum

We could make a cheap joke about how these vacuums suck, or an underhanded crack about Metro-sexuals—but we won’t.

Undercover SE Tonneau

Undercover SE Tonneau Cover

A more stylish version of the original UnderCover Tonneau Cover, the SE is the James Bond to the original’s Colonel Samuel Flagg.

But wait, there’s more…not only did we get these three new products up, but we have also loaded a brand new dash covers and dash kits department! It the new dash covers department, you can find plush carpet dash covers, swanky suede dash covers, and velvety velour dashboard covers.

In the new dash kits department, we choose to do a similar breakdown, so know you can easily sort through them by material type: carbon fiber dash kits, molded dash kits and wood dash kits.  Pretty slick, huh?  If you want to know more about dash covers and trim, we updated our dash covers shopping guide (and dash kits shopping guide) to help guide you in making the right decision.

New Templates + Car Massagers, Heated Car Blankets, Lap Desks & More – An AutoAnything Weekly Update


After an hour long surf session, a brief swim with some dolphins and a little breakfast, I made it to work and checked my inbox.  Sure enough, we had released a bunch of new stuff on our site…I love the smell of new product in the morning!

And not only do we have all this new product for you, but we also did a little redesign on the site.  Here’s a link to our seat covers department; if you click it, there’s a good chance you’ll see the  new template.  If you see the same old site, dump your cookies and refresh the page.  If that still doesn’t work, check out the snap shot below.  There are a few big changes and a lot of subtle ones, but overall we think the (re)design is a big improvement.  Hover your mouse over one of the products and click the “Quick Look” button for a nifty preview of the product.

Our category pages also went under the knife and they share a similar look and feel to the departments, but now have some filtering options to help you find what you’re looking for.  For example, take a look the left navigation on our neoprene seat covers page.

Without feedback, we’re shooting in the dark, so if you’ve got some thoughts about the new templates, we would love to hear it!  As for the new products…

Concept: MCE MC1 Super Car


It’s been a while since I’ve seen a concept super car that really wow’d me, but I recently stumbled across this little gem that was created in a joint venture between MotorCity and C2P Automotive.  It’s powered by a 600HP V10 sitting in an all-carbon fiber monocoque chassis.  With 20″ wheels up front and 21″ wheels in the back, this ride has got the rubber to put all that power down in style.  Physically, it’s a little shorter and narrower than a Murcielago LP640, but 15 mm higher.

While this car is still only a concept, both companies are seeking more funding to put it into production.  I sure hope they find it, because this car is gorgeous!
