Odd Beast – Phil Riley

In 1963, upper management at General Motors sent word from on high that none of their divisions would be allowed or authorized to have formal corporate involvement in auto racing.

FEATURES- CHEVY THE PERFECTIONIST – Mick & Judy Bodigon 55 Chevy

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.

FEATURES- FORD WARHORSE – Joe & Leslie Murphy 1990 Ford Mustang

For almost as long as man has done battle in the air, aircraft have been adorned with cool artwork.

FEATURES- ONE OF A KIND – Doug Fields’ ’71 Chevelle

Walking toward Doug Fields’ 1971 Chevelle SS, you get a feeling that you’re in for a really nice musclecar.

FEATURES- SacrilegeLS – Bill Trovato 5th Gen Camaro

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, […]
