FEATURE – Howlin’ Hauler – Alan Williamson

To car enthusiasts in the United Kingdom, the United States is well known as “the land of milk and honey”. First, because of the relatively low cost of building a hot rod, but even more so because of the availability of the donor cars and trucks themselves. What we sometimes take for granted, others can […]

How many people first learned to drive in an old VW Bug? Myself, I remember coming home from school to hop in a ‘69 Bug that sat at my grandfather’s shop. I must have put 100 miles on that thing and taught myself how to drive a stick in it. It almost broke my heart to see […]

FEATURED – SUIT and BOWTIE Mark Lohr 1968 Camaro

Nicknamed “The Wax Wagon,” Indiana native Mark Lohr’s 1968 Chevrolet Camaro has been an ongoing project for nearly three decades. Although the original 350 cubic inch, 4-barrel, 4-speed drivetrain was long gone when Lohr took possession, the SS still exhibits the original paint color. Mesmerizing under the noon day sun, the Corvette Bronze Chevy is […]

FEATURED – NO POSER Harold Caron 1984 Chevrolet Camaro

When the third generation Camaro was first introduced for the 1982 model year, it was heralded as a next-generation muscle car for a new era. Although the F-body cars always handled adeptly, they sported such forgettable engine combos as a 2.5L four-banger and the almost-perfectly named Cross-Fire Injection (many refer to the setup as “ceasefire […]

Like most of you reading this magazine, Jesse Coburn has a long and sordid history when it comes to his love affair with the automobile. “Growing up, as a kid I was always around cars with my dad,” the Basehor, Kansas resident reflected. “As long as I can remember, my dad Randy was always tinkering […]

FEATURED – OUTTA CONTROL Steve Wojcik 1969 Camaro

Buying a project car is always a bit of a crapshoot. Oftentimes, you never really know if the “facts” provided in an online ad are legit or not until it’s too late. And while the optimist in us all wants to believe every would-be salesman would never intentionally mislead, story after story of folks getting […]

FEATURE- THE STICK SHIFTERS

In every race community, there are groups that form and come to light. The Pro Stock and Pro Mod scene in the ’80s grew into Pro Street, while the current radial tire craze that started with the NSCA and NMCA has spawned multiple new classes of drag racing like no prep and the drag n’ […]

Jerry Gary, Jr. was sick. Really sick. The likeable Smithfield, Virginia auto parts consultant spent more than a few days wondering if his time was almost up.

Face it: some of us just can’t leave well enough alone. When “good enough” is rarely (if ever) good enough and when “decent effort” is unacceptable in light of best effort, rest assured that you’re afflicted. The unshakable roots of perfectionism have a way of plunging hard into the depths of your psyche, leaving you […]

‘My first pass down the track was a blistering 14.85 @90 mph,” said Scarborough, Ontario’s Chris Damovski with a hearty laugh. And fast it wasn’t. But a start, it was. And we all gotta start somewhere, right? Damovski acquired the car as a hand-me-down from his uncle while working in his grandfather’s shop at the […]

Most of us are familiar with the idea of hibernation. You know the drill: animals bury themselves deep in a hole and sleep through the winter. Hibernation is an energy-saving measure that allows the critter to survive long periods of time when food is typically scarce. However, some animals like snakes who live in milder […]

There’s nothing like the satisfaction of building a car of your own. Whether it is your driver with a few mods or an all-out race car, the feeling of seeing your hard work and effort come together in a well-built project is second to none. John Sears has known that feeling time and time again, […]

For almost as long as man has done battle in the air, aircraft have been adorned with cool artwork. Growing significantly in popularity during World War II, nose art in particular grew both more common and more elaborate. Sometimes intended to intimidate like ferocious shark teeth and other times intended to unify ground and air […]

Walking toward Doug Fields’ 1971 Chevelle SS, you get a feeling that you’re in for a really nice musclecar. As you get in for a closer look, though, and notice the beefy meats out back, side exit exhaust, and stance that is anything but typical, you know that something special is lurking within the confines […]

Face the facts: if a man knows enough about anything to write a book about it, he’s probably an expert (or darn close). The hours upon hours of research, writing, revising, and writing some more builds a familiarity that simply cannot be forged any other way. For BTR Performance’s Bill Trovato of Rochester, New York, […]

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 […]

EZ Does It – Sam Furfaro – EZ Street Big Block Nitrous Grand Prix

At the age of 16, Salvatore “Sam” Furfaro fell in love with musclecars and hot rods. By 20, he purchased his first “semi-musclecar” (as he put it), a 1977 Pontiac Grand Prix. “It had a mild cam, a 750 carb, some head work done to it, and of course, headers,” said Furfaro. Although he wouldn’t […]
