It’s amazing how many people you can meet being involved with a hobby. Automotive gatherings are obviously a mecca of hot rodders, gear heads, and casual enthusiasts just wanting to mingle. It’s a great place to make friends and unfortunately… sometimes enemies.

Think back…remember all the gauges? It was like sitting in the cockpit of a commercial airliner. Between the tuning and gauges cost, you were knee deep in a second mortgage on your house. Finally (thank god) technology has caught up, and being a muscle car enthusiasts in the 21st century is the best place to be
When you’re in the automotive publishing business, one of the consequences of the job is that you often get asked, “how do I get sponsorship for my race team?” What I usually find, though, is that the racers have only a vague idea of what a sponsorship really is, or how to go about getting one.

Recently my car was a victim of vehicular vandalism, and I’m now in the process of getting the whole car resprayed. Seen as both a blessing and a curse, I’ll be without my own daily driver for over a month, but at least it will be like new again when I get it back. Shouldn’t it be a crime against nature though?
Our mission with Project Y2k – take America’s Sports Car and make it better on a blue collar budget, turning this decade-old platform into a car that’s good at a little bit of everything.

I have a confession to make. Even though I’m going to be writing about cars for powerTV, I haven’t actually driven a car in the last two years. Scandalous – I know!

The answer to your in depth technical questions might be more available to you than you realize. Imagine sitting down with the likes of Doug Yates, Keith Dorton, Dr. Dean Hill, Ron Shaver, or Gary Stanton. Impossible? It might be easier then you think!
Lately, there’s been a lot of talk in the industry about how the LSX engines are the new replacement for the classic SBC and the BBC engines. Although there are some skeptics out there, I sort of believe this to be true, especially as time goes on.

Is GM’s latest and greatest vehicle platform, codenamed Alpha, growing too fat and expensive? That’s what a new report says, as GM is struggling to keep weight down to accommodate better performance and fuel efficiency. The underpinnings of the next-generation Camaro are at stake…
This summer, instead of spending hours on end polishing your car or endlessly beating on it at the track all weekend, set aside time to grab some of your favorite music, and take a ride through the countryside. In an age where everybody’s on the go-go-go, it’s nice to step back and take time to relax.
As I sit here, I come to realize that next month will be nine years that my Trans Am and I have been together. She’s a 2002 WS6 that I ordered and purchased new, and though we’ve had our ups and downs together, I don’t ever regret my purchase.

We all did stupid things growing up. Hopefully we learned from them, and we’re better, more responsible adults for having made the mistakes we did. But then again, for many of our readers our adolescent indiscretions took place in a very different time.
If you were ever to ask the majority of Pontiac Trans Am owners what their inspiration was for purchasing one, it would most likely be the 1977 film classic, Smokey and the Bandit. It’s been 33 years since the summer that release hit theaters and the automotive landscape will never be the same.

Performance at GM can be broken down into many groups and several activities. This is in no way intended to be a comprehensive guide to all of this, but it will at least give you some idea of what GM has to offer. First, and foremost, GM has several incredible new performance cars that you can choose from.

Is it arguable that some vehicles are better left alone? Vehicles with unique high-performance powertrains, that were built in limited production, for only a short amount of time, are considered by some to be sacred territory and are better left with their original powertrains under their hood.
There’s no easier way to get out of the stands and onto the track than drag racing. Nobody’s born knowing how to drag race though, and everybody was a newbie once. Going to the track for the first time can be intimidating – nobody wants to look like they don’t know what they’re doing.

It is quite simply impossible to predict the future. Such is the case for the C7 Corvette. We’ve heard rumors, we’ve seen renderings – yet there is not a single reliable, absolute piece of information except that there will eventually be a C7 Corvette.

The last two weeks have been filled with “car guy” moments – more so than what I usually get at my day job as Product Integration Manager at GM Performance Parts. The irony here is that even though I work for GM, and I’m constantly talking to the media, I rarely get the opportunity to [...]
