We are Atomic Industry. We are the voice of the working man, a tool in the toolbox of the guy that does it himself, and a place where citizen journalists can show the “big time” media a thing or two about content people really value. We haven’t done it all yet, but We’ve done some:  (these next 5 are ours)

    The Jalopy Journal
    Dedicated to spreading the gospel of traditional hot rods and kustoms to hoodlums world wide. The Jalopy Journal
    and its H.A.M.B. is the largest & most complete community in the world aimed at fellas looking to build a traditional car.

    The Ford Barn
    The Ford Barn has been around a long time… We acquired the site in April of 2010 and quickly got to work putting it 
    through an Atomic tune. It’s now… ready… set… go!

    The Garage Journal
    Originally started by Lucky Luke and named, The Garage Journal was acquired in early 2006.
    We needed a place to talk shop and tools… Luke had already built the best, so we mugged him for it. It’s all yours now.

    The Gear Journal
    The Gear Journal was started in mid 2009 after a brush with a trick “survivor” key chain. One passion lead to another
    and a site was built dedicated to the gadgets and gear that make all of our lives easier. Expect big things fellas. HUGE.
