Car Feature: Joe Haniszewski’s “SiniSSter” 1966 Chevelle

The 1966 Chevelle was, to date, the best Chevelle that Chevrolet had ever produced. After the success of the Z-16 option for 1965, the 1966 Chevelle Super Sports received the 396 cubic-inch power plant. These SS Chevelles terrorized and pummeled everything that lined up next to them, even for years to come. For Joe Haniszewski, a basic SS 396 Chevelle wasn't enough. … [Read more...]

Car Feature: Jon Free’s 1968 Camaro “The Greedy Bitch”

April ’15 Feature of the Month: Bob Bertelsen’s 1969 Chevy C-10 “Orange Rush”

The Chevy truck line has been around for decades and decades. In reality, up until the 1990's they were never viewed as a performance-type vehicle. Chevy trucks were the workhorses, the back-bone of America. In the mid-1990's Chevy created one of the very first ever performance minded trucks, the SS. This truck packed a 454 cubic inch engine, into a single cab truck. Now if you … [Read more...]

March ’15 Feature of the Month: Chris Wissing’s 1970 Chevelle, “Wissing’s Wish”

The 1970 Chevelle is regarded by most as the epitome of performance in the muscle car era. With the LS6 package that shoved a 454 cubic inch motor under the hood, there weren't many cars that could touch this fire breathing dragon. Chevrolet was on their game - and winning. Enter Chris Wissing and his overly supportive wife Rebecca and their 1970 Chevelle. Wissing grew up as … [Read more...]

As we wound our way through the cars in front of the buildings a bright … [Read more...]

January ’15 Feature of the Month: 1969 Firebird “Wild Turkey” built by Josh Baker

Story by Josh Baker This project has been a long and “wild” journey that has filled me with moments of great satisfaction, subdued by annoying frustration, feelings of euphoria and great loss. To explain the longevity of the build, it wasn’t that I worked at it slow, but that I started a shop and did many complete restorations and only worked on this on the side. It all … [Read more...]
