MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
The year has flown by and if you are reading this, you made it through the challenges 2021 year brought you.
For those we have lost throughout this year, we hold them dear in our hearts and wish peace for their families.
The January 2022 issue of RPM Magazine will be released to subscribers on December 24th to allow time to read your favorite features and stories before the Festivities of Christmas begin.
Here’s a sneak peak at Who’s In This Issue – January 2022!
Legendary – Rod Saboury’s latest ’63 Corvette is over the top cool!
There’s no doubt that Rod Saboury’s most recent build will follow suit with his past work and be recognized at the top level of our sport, but when you’ve been instrumental in putting massive movements in car culture on the map; such as street car drag racing and Pro Street, both of which still thrive today, and building race winning, record setting, show stopping combinations using naturally aspirated, blown and turbo combinations, in our book you qualify as a legend.
Wonderbread – This deadly boosted Mod Motor Mustang is no soft squishy bag of bread!
Long before there were racetracks of any kind, let alone drag strips, if you had a beef with someone about who was quicker or faster you cranked-up (literally) your ride and hit a side road to settle it. Initially, automobiles were owned out of necessity, then status, but once horsepower became part of the equation it wasn’t long before street racing became part of American car culture.
The Natural – Joe Muro’s smoke gray naturally aspirated 2nd Gen Camaro is a rare but vicious animal.
So how exactly did the Camaro get its name? First off, it has been said that all car lines of the day were to start with the letter “C”. From there, Camaro was chosen from thousands of options and was initially said to mean “comrade” or “friend”, however, apparently when reporters asked various GM execs about the name they were told it was, “a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs.” Joe Muro likes the latter.
II Fly – After getting in and out of drag racing more times than he can count, this wild nitrous Chevy II is exactly what Josh Forbes has always wanted.
By the time he got his driver’s license, he was hooked! “Savannah Dragway on Wednesday nights then became a religion for me,” said Forbes. Fast forward just 6 months and he had already bought his first project, a 1991 Chevrolet S-10 pickup, and what was his first purchase for it? A 6-inch cowl induction hood!
Never mind the fact that his truck had no drivetrain, it didn’t matter, the hood was awesome!
Lucky Kid – Cole Sammartino got his first project car at 10 years old, and is still running it today!
The dads and moms who grew up with muscle cars owned by their dads and moms are passing the torch down to their children, only now, horsepower has taken on a whole new meaning thanks to the ingenuity (and piles of broken parts) from the 40- plus crowd. This is exactly the kind of story New Jersey native Cole Sammartino had growing up, which eventually led up to one pretty badass LSX powered Nova.
