A Day at the Goodguys 33rd All American Get-Together in Pleasanton

by Tony Huntimer It was Saturday March 28th at the Goodguys 33rd All American Get-Together held at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, CA. I had been hearing commercials on the radio.

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...]

Shiftin’ Gears With Lokar Performance Products

When you're swapping motors and transmissions in a car, there are a lot of challenges. What motor mounts to use, what headers will fit, and so forth. Sometimes those are rather easy to find swap kits for, or pieces that will work. But just like the old saying, "the devil is in the details," we found out on an LQ4 and 4L80E swap that saying was all but too true. One area … [Read more...]

Street Machine And Muscle Car Nationals 2015

The Street Machine And Muscle Car Nationals in Pomona, CA has quickly become one of our favorite shows. We were there last year for the first year, and had high hopes for this year. The event was held at the Fairplex which is the same grounds as the famous NHRA drag strip and home of the NHRA museum. This show is what I would consider a "new school" show. What I mean by … [Read more...]

That just goes to show you that this was a real-world show, not scripted, edited or extended. This also shows you that even with the best parts, people and tools available, things don't always go … [Read more...]
