COOL TOOLS – Meta Fab Dimple Dies

Fabrication tasks depend on two things: craftsmanship and quality tools. And just as we discussed last month in our Cool Tools spot, usually the more cool fabrication tools you have, the more you find that you absolutely HAVE to have. Such is the case this month. Way back in our July 2016 issue, we featured […]

FEATURE – Storm Warning – Troy Lacrone – 1968 Camaro

You don’t have to be around the custom car scene long to learn that there’s no shortage of Camaro fans out there. And why not? The classic Chevy lines are unmistakable regardless of generation, and build costs tend to be reasonable compared to other popular Ford and Mopar body styles. But while there may be […]

TECH – Cover Your Butt – Engine Diaper Install

If there is one thing I’ve learned in my first 14 months of fatherhood, it is the vital importance of diapers. I never gave them much thought for the first 38 years of my life, but now I realize how fast things get out of hand without one. Even 10 minutes with a miniwild man […]

NEWS – Scorpion Endurance Series Shaft-Mount Roller Rockers from Summit Racing: Over-Engineered for Better Performance

Shaft-mounted roller rocker arms That’s because shaft-mount rockers don’t deflect and move around, throwing off valvetrain timing and costing you power and component life like stud-mount rockers can. Scorpion likes to point out that its Endurance Series Shaft-Mount Roller Rocker Arms are over-engineered so your valvetrain timing stays rock-solid race after race. Looking over the […]

COOL TOOLS – Making AN Braided Hoses with Koul Tools

If you have ever tried to assemble Army/Navy (AN) braided  hoses, then you have most certainly experienced the dreaded braid spread.” No matter how carefully you try to tape and cut the hose, as soon as you attempt to thread the fitting in place,  the braid frays, exits the inner surface of the fitting, and […]

It’s T Time – Lisa Fischer – 1987 Buick Regal

Lisa Fischer fondly remembers riding in the car with her dad and brother playing “what year is that car,” as they drove down the road. “I quickly learned the small differences between many makes and models and I loved them all,” tells Fischer. “It’s either in your blood or not!” she added. As a child, […]

Toy Story – Garrett Barker – 1986 Chevy Monte Carlo SS

Nostalgia drag racing is still on a major upswing, and it’s crazy to think that cars built in the ’80s and ’90s qualify as nostalgic. But, in the case of this wildly modified Chevy Monte Carlo, it takes people back to a simpler time, and it certainly takes its owner back in time. Garrett Barker […]

Full Assault – Mark Robert – 1966 C10 Pickup

There was little doubt that Waterdown, Ontario Canada’s Mark Robert would be wheeling some sort of fast car on the street—and eventually the dragstrip—as soon as he was old enough to drive. “I can remember my dad bringing a transmission into our apartment living room to rebuild it, and he was repairing and rebuilding cars […]

For The Love Of The Game – Justin Lopes – 1963 Nova

In this game we call life we make choices and take chances every single day. Some work and, well, some don’t. So that being said, even though we know the outcome of our last endeavor, would that stop us from trying it again? For most of us the answer is probably a resounding hell no! […]

10 Piece – Tony Adkins – Chevy S10

I bought it eight years ago for $600.

And with an estimated 1,300 ProCharger assisted horsepower on tap, we certainly won’t […]

Label Shaker – Rick and Kathy Bryant

For as much as we are a family in street machining circles, there sure is a lot of infighting in our brood. Need proof? “Shiny car” guys hate rat rods. Rat rodders hate craftsmanship (too much? Am I showing my allegiances?). Pro touring folks hate pro streeters. Tubbed lovers hate “coners” (i.e.-autocrossers). It seems that […]
