EVENTS RE-LIVED – Yellow Bullet Nationals 2014

EVENTS RE-LIVED – Yellow Bullet Nationals 2014

Since most of the outlaw style events have been gone for some time in the northern and Mid-Atlantic states, the talk over last year’s 2013 Yellow Bullet Nationals was even more than expected. Picking up steam each year, the Yellow Bullet Nationals (AKA the YB Nats) for 2014 had its own share of controversy, just […]

YES – Charles Leake

It has been said that once a car has been cut up and relegated to full-on race duty, the odds of it ever returning to the street are next to zero. After all, any racer knows that the best ways to increase speed and decrease elapsed times are more horsepower and less weight. Building horsepower […]

My Truck – Ricky Ashworth

As we hit Virginia during what we like to call our 2014 RPM Magazine Search For Horsepower Tour, we kept hearing about this jet black, Shafiroff big block powered, nitroused ’57 Chevy pickup.

So few are these instances that we actually become somewhat numb to the possibility of seeing one, and when we do we can easily overlook it or immediately pass it […]

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. Long known as a performance-oriented brand, Pontiac was left only one option: turn their attention to production platforms or rebrand altogether. Thankfully for musclecar enthusiasts, […]

From Wild to Wilder – John Gerber

Quick question – how many GMC Typhoons have you ever seen? Did you know such a vehicle even existed? Well, it did, even though this muscular big brother to General Motors Corporation’s ubiquitous Jimmy was only on the scene for a brief span of two years, 1992 and 1993. During that time a grand total […]

Blown Away – Billy Meadows

In extreme sports, there’s always that thought tucked away in the back of your head that there is a certain level of danger involved. It keeps you on your toes, fully aware and in touch with everything that is going on around you. For many, when they are involved in a serious accident they rethink […]

All The Luck – Mick Bodigon

Maybe it was blessed by a priest. Or maybe it has a secret compartment of fairy dust hidden somewhere in the dash. Or maybe there’s a four leaf clover ghosted into the clearcoat.

Das Volkswagen – Troy Mason

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 […]

Howlin’ Hauler – Alan Williamson

To car enthusiasts in the United Kingdom, the United States is well known as “the land of milk and honey”.
