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 and 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 garagejunkies.net, 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.
