    www.howstuffworks.com has a good automotive section.

    Mags is a term for magnesium wheels, these were used back in the 60s as a lighter alternative to steel wheels. Now most wheels are aluminum, which is even lighter than magnesium. If you see sort of dull gray metal wheels on an old muscle car, those are problem mags.

    Spoilers are the things on the back of cars, like the big things Trans Ams have, or the big useless ugly things that all ricers have.

    go to 7 Eleven and buy a Car craft every month , popular hotrodding is another good one, you might now understand everything in them but you will be better off after about a year of reading em all. Order free catalogs and stuff too from places like Summit Racing
