Open vs Enclosed Transport The cheapest way to ship a car is open transport. FYI, almost all the quotes you get from any transporters and brokers will be for this method. Open transport is the method of choice for most customers for a couple reasons. There are more open carriers on the road than enclosed trailers, and it’s the least expensive way to ship a car. If the car you’re shipping is the vehicle you drive every day, open shipping is the way to go. If it’s a classic, vintage, or restored vehicle, you may opt for enclosed transport, but it is significantly more expensive than open transport. As a rule, enclosed transport is about 60% to 2x as expensive as open transport. J&S only offers open transport, as it is what we do best. Cheapest way to ship car not always the best idea When you search for auto transport companies online, you will instantly realize that there are hundreds of car delivery services out there. It can be a little overwhelming. Your first instinct may be to just go with the cheapest quote you receive and leave it at that. However, take caution. A low-priced auto shipping quote is not always a good deal. There’s a high chance it will end up costing you more in the long run. Saving money is important, but when it comes to the cheapest way to ship a car, going with the least expensive option usually isn’t your best bet. It’s no… Read more »
Drive It Like You Stole It and Feel the MOPAR Magic with Our Soundtrack Comin’ in Clutch – A modern playlist evoking gangsters, stock car racers, and classic car lovers. Swaggering, rebellious independence works for both rock ‘n roll and fast cars. We wrote about music and muscle cars and their shared rough and tumble, rebellious spirit. We’ve come to the conclusion this is a lot like the attitudes people have about racing any kind of car, not just the ones loaded with muscle. Turns out, this swaggering, rebellious attitude started decades before Muscle Cars came on the market. It started way back with the bootleg moonshine drivers. The Roaring 20s were known for a lot of things. Outrageous parties, good music, fast cars, outlaws smuggling hooch, the lot of it. Needless to say, the romance and swagger went hand in hand. We like to think our playlist does a pretty good job of the same. Catch me if you can… Every driving aficionado has at least some degree of a need for speed within them. Feeling the power of an engine rumbling through ones feet on the floor is an irreplaceable magic. We’ve sought to preserve this driving magic with a playlist for all to enjoy. Inspired by our friends at Graveyard Carz and their undying passion for all things MOPAR, it’s a soundtrack meant for being on the road, and behind the wheel. Classic rock meets new voices, and old legends give way to up-and-comers. Full of rebellion,… Read more »
Bet you didn’t know there were so many artists out there taking the old classic rock sound you love and putting a new spin on it. Lucky we’re here! If you’ve got a Muscle Car, Street Rod, or maybe an El Camino, you’re in for a treat. (Treat still enjoyable even if you’re driving something not so exotic – we promise). America is home to a driving culture unlike any other. Wide open spaces, and more miles of road than you could shake a stick at. Unlike most other countries, our borders are distinctly different, and far, far apart. With this comes an impressive variety in cars, races, shows, and driving environments. Muscle Cars are a special breed; and both the Hot Rods that came before them, and the Street Rods that followed, have a long and rich history. A lot changes over the years. Paint jobs, what kind of engine you’re allowed to put in a car, speed limits, the amount of grease in your hair, and how beat up your leather is. Music changes, too. The old lays the foundation, and the younger generations appreciate what came before, learn from it, and create a new kind of art entirely their own. That’s what the beauty of this playlist is to us. Much like how an old Ford Model-T can be swanky and faster than lightning with the right modifications, new life can be breathed into old music: Car lovers form a friendly community bonded by their love of… Read more »
Try out this epic playlist and see how it compares to the glory days of old. We created it with our friends at Graveyard Carz, the only MOPAR show on television. Like us, they enjoy driving with the top down and the music loud! via GIPHY Muscle Cars are America’s gift to the automotive world. Europe makes elegant, famously fast vehicles, and America found its own way to make a mark in typical fashion. Loud, fast, mildly aggressive, and oozing sex appeal – the late 1960s gave the first taste of muscle. These magnetic vehicles gave their driver a sense of swaggering independence like no other. The 1960s were a time of emotional, social, and political turmoil. It was only natural this was reflected in pop culture. The 1950s encouraged the rise of Rock & Roll, and the lifestyle that accompanied this. Rock & Roll was an undeniably American art-form. A fusion of roots-country, old jazz, rhythm & blues, and a little taste of the new generation – Rock & Roll was loud. It was messy. It was fierce, rough and tumble, and it was not backing down. Sound familiar? A fast car goes a long way… but half of the experience is the soundtrack backing up that cruise. We’ve curated 20 songs that provide a contemporary take on the classic MOPAR driving sound. Not all of the lyrics are car-related, but we promise they sound so good you won’t mind the change of pace. Muscle Car Romance… Small body,… Read more »

Graveyard Carz is an automotive show focusing on restoring Chrysler muscle cars. Not only are the cars wrecked, they are beyond repair. Broadcast on the Velocity Channel, Graveyard Carz is one of if not the most popular shows on the network, and has fans across the country, and J&S’s drivers are no exception! Our driver Ben Rodriquez is a huge fan of Graveyard Carz, and when he dropped off a 1971 Dodge Challenger in desperate need of restoration, he got the chance to check out the repair shop and meet some of the crew, including Dave Rea and the man, Mark Worman, the driving passion behind Graveyard Carz, himself! Mark and his team of auto restoration experts specialize in MOPAR cars that have seen better days. They scour the country for classics in desperate need of resurrection! The cars Mark and his crew work on are found far and wide throughout the US and can’t be driven to their shop in Oregon. How do they get the cars delivered to their shop? We’ve been lucky enough to transport a few cars for Mark Worman and the crew, and we’re delivering a few for the 7th season, which is set to premiere in March. We’re looking forward to seeing a few of the cars we transported for them restored! Check your local listings to see the day and time Graveyard Carz comes back!
