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.

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” […]

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 […]

10 Piece – Tony Adkins – Chevy S10

I bought it eight years ago for $600. It was white, beat up and slow so I gave it a complete 180,” said Tony Adkins of his wickedly cool black Chevy S10 pick-up. “Now it’s now black, straight and fast!” he added. And with an estimated 1,300 ProCharger assisted horsepower on tap, we certainly won’t […]

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 […]

What’s not to ‘love’ about a Chevrolet LUV? It’s definitely not a ‘me too’ ride one sees very often on the street, let alone in racing. These light utility vehicles (aka: LUV) are an instant conversation starter and the center of attention when and if you actually come across one, especially when it is as […]

Still The One – John Caruso

Islip, New York resident John Caruso isn’t the kind of guy to make a hasty decision.

While nearly every aspect of the car, including […]

But like every good villain,  […]
