I will admit that just the word “vintage” conjures up memories of poorly organized antique shops and mysterious pungent odors. I love the thought of vintage, but most shops I have ventured into leave me wanting to run for the hills. However, a new website called Reppio.com is out to help guide true lovers of all styles to the best and brightest privately owned shops in Chicago neighborhoods. “It’s all about helping small businesses,” states Reppio Rep Annie Dean. “A lot of people who come to the city don’t know where to begin and might end up dismissing the charm of a neighborhood like Wicker Park just because they wandered into a store that’s wrong for them and their style.” Reppio is online and ready to help you find the designers, shops, and items that will suit your style whether you’re shabby chic or trendy urban.

Singapore – That time of year again for Formula One’s only entirely night race on it’s calendar. Welcome back to The Lion City ladies and gentlemen, and to the Marina Bay Street Circuit which has hosted the SingTel Singapore Grand Prix since 2008. The past four races have proven to be quite the spectacle with 2010 edition showcasing four drivers within ten points of each other in the F1 Drivers’ Championship.

This 2012 addition finds a different scenario entering the race with Spaniard Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) leading the field by a 37 point margin. (Remember that a win gives a driver 25 points while top ten finishers all receive a lesser amount based on final position.)
But the right-sided steering column is not the only thing different between Australian and United States automobiles. How about cars that supplement their fuel usage with Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG)? We have school buses, heavy machinery and public worker fleets that run on it in the States, why not cars?
