FEATURES – PROFESSIONAL GRADE – Ron Fountain ’68 Camaro

Severn, Ontario’s Ron Fountain was tired of the hassle. Fed up with the fight. Weary of the war. With a 9-second capable but non-caged 1970 Nova that he had street raced for years, every time he went to the track he’d get scolded for having a car that lacked the necessary safety equipment for its […]

FEATURES – LIFE’S A JOURNEY – Bruce McConnell – 46 Dodge

Born in Indianapolis in 1946, Bruce McConnell has always been fascinated with anything mechanical. “I was one of those kids who always needed to take everything apart to see how it worked,” tells Bruce. “When I was about 8 years old, I began attending the Indianapolis 500 and knew right then that I had the […]

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 – THE MAVERICK – Dan Bosco – ’74 Ford Maverick

Dan Bosco, just like the name of his Outlaw Limited Street “Maverick” suggests, isn’t scared to cross the line of conformity. No stranger to cars growing up, Bosco’s dad always had something that would turn heads in the driveway. For Dan though, there was nothing like the thought of going fast in a drag car, […]

FEATURES – DELUXE BOOST – Jay Friedrich – ’66 Chevelle

“I bought the car in 1986 while I was a sophomore in college,” said Jay Friedrich of his 1966 Chevelle Deluxe. “It was an all original six-cylinder car with 48,000 original miles.” That Chevelle would only make it one  more year with the six in it as Freidrich was working  feverishly after school nd any […]

FEATURES – FOR THE JACKET – Al Matuska – ’65 Chevelle

Did Al Matuska intend on changing the future of the Northern Ohio drag racing scene when an old friend came knocking on his door 15 years ago? The answer is no, but that is exactly what happened! When he was just 17 years old, Matuska bought himself an Oldsmobile 442 and it was time to […]

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” […]

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 […]

They say change is one of the most difficult things we have to face as human beings. Whether it be  work-related, personal life, or changes in other major parts of our lives, like for instance our  cars.

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 […]

Sweet Z – Richie Shallcross – 69 Chevrolet Camaro

This flawless 1969 Camaro brings back the age-old debate among gearheads: what makes a race car a race car and a street car a street car? That same question has been asked ever since street car drag racing first started, but will there ever be a correct answer? We say, not likely. Deciding what is […]

Purple Rain – Heath Hisle – Chevy LUV Pickup

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. After all, the owner of New Apple Automotive Warehouse first purchased this lightning-quick 1961 Corvette as a gutted-out roller for the paltry sum of $2,000 all the way back in 1976. While nearly every aspect of the car, including […]

But like every good villain,  […]
