FEATURE – BIG SHOT – Tony Harlin – 1968 Dodge Dart

Sloatsburg, New York resident Tony Harlin is no stranger to world-class performance. The former competitive track & field athlete was a highly decorated shot putter, finishing fifth in the 1984 U.S. Olympic Trials by launching a 16-pound steel shot over 66 feet. Such results require lots of hard work, flawless execution, and plenty of muscle. […]

FEATURED – PRO PINK Dale Renner 1970 Plymouth Duster

We hear it all the time here at RPM. “I used to have a Boss 429 Mustang…” or “My first car was a Hemi Cuda…” or “My cousin had an original Yenko Camaro, and I could have bought it for next to nothing back in the day…” Almost universally, such opening statements are quickly followed […]

FEATURE – WICKED WILLYS David Murdoch 1933 Willys

Imagine trying to build the hot rod of your dreams, but living 400 miles away from the nearest chassis builder and thousands of miles away from most every part you’ll need to build it. Not an easy task, and definitely not something that most readers can even imagine, however, such were the challenges of South […]

FEATURE – PRO STREET EVOLUTION – Jeff Fern 1970 Camaro

Make no mistake. RPM Magazine isn’t the place for theological debate or scientific arguments of a non-automotive flavor. We won’t ever discuss the social implications of the Pope’s visit stateside or the existence or fallacy of greenhouse gases and their impact on climate change. But for the next few pages, we’re going to prove that […]

FEATURES – NO REGRETS – Tony Merlic ’69 Camaro

Hindsight can be a tricky thing. Most of us can reflect back and wonder how our lives might be different had we taken that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, asked out that cute brunette, or tried out for that exclusive team or club. And when we get right down to it, most car guys and gals can usually […]

FEATURES – WHO’S THE BOSS – Jamie Pipher ’70 Ford Torino

We aren’t afraid to admit it. In a veritable sea of Mustangs and Camaros, we at RPM are suckers for relatively obscure body styles, alternative colors, and off-the-beaten path engine and transmission combos—especially when such rides are able to crank out insane power. Don’t get us wrong—there are plenty of gorgeous mainstream cars out there. […]

FEATURES – LOVE AT FIRST BITE – Jim Sciortino – 1970 Barracuda

For some of us, it takes a while to settle on the perfect car for a build. We scour the available targets, consider the pros and cons of each, hunt for a good buy, and eventually we make our choice. But for others like Trumbull, Connecticut’s Jim Sciortino, it is a far simpler choice. “I […]

FEATURES – CUTS LIKE A KNIFE – Brent Groh – ’72 Ford Mustang

It was 1980. Rock-and-roll still rocked. Teen fiction spoke of a bright and promising future for us all.

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 […]

Chances are, if you picked up this magazine, you already have it. If you don’t, you most likely soon will.

Overkill – Rod Bollini – 1991 Dodge Dakota

Pro street comes in many flavors. If you think of fat-tired rides like language, then there are plenty of “accents” based in region, based in availability, and based in personal taste. Some opt for sleek and  modern, while others go for the wildest, most over-the-top build they can conjure up. It’s safe to say that […]
