FEATURES – STIFF WIND – Anthony Albanese ‘ ’71 Chevelle Ragtop

It’s been said that variety is the spice of life. And try as we might to mix things up here at RPM, the truth is that for all our car guy and gal chest thumping for being different, unique, and individualistic, we sure tend to do things a lot more alike than different. We all […]

FEATURES – LEGIT – Frank & Mary Bendit – 1970 Chevy Nova

There seem to be two schools of thought in what it takes to build a dual-purpose street/strip car. One group would suggest taking an all-out drag car, doing just enough to make it street legal, and trailering it anywhere and everywhere to demonstrate its stellar—and frankly predictable—on-track performance. However, to the other bunch of street/strip […]

FEATURES – A FAMILY AFFAIR – W G Miller – 67 Chevy Nova

As the saying goes, “the family that plays together, stays together.” For Shelbyville, TN horsepower enthusiast W.G. Miller, his family games just happen to involve several hundred horsepower, thousands of miles in road trips, then beatin’ the heck out of his car most weekends during the spring and summer. “I have a 1967 Chevy ll […]

FEATURES – WILD WEST – Farrell West – ’72 Chevy Nova

Street legal is the only way that Farrell West of Beaumont, Mississippi would have his 1972 Chevy Nova. Of course that doesn’t mean the car can’t mix it up with the best of them in classes like True 10.5 or X275—he just prefers that his own car fit the true intention of a “street car” […]

I was recently told, “life is short man, enjoy what you want now as later may never come.” If we could all have a buck or two for every time somebody said that to us, we’d have a bit more to spend on our cars. We will all walk away from this article understanding just […]

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 […]

Chances are, if you picked up this magazine, you already have it. If you don’t, you most likely soon will. With both genetic and heritable trains identified already, many of us acquired it either from a family member like a dad, grandfather, or uncle or a neighborhood friend with a tool box and a crowded […]
