Making The Link: Sub-Frame Connectors and X-Brace

The uni-body cars of yesterday had some downfalls. While they are lightweight and provide a smooth ride, they flex - a lot. We've heard stories where cars were drag raced and every time they made a pass down the strip, the doors shut differently. With a big enough motor and big enough tire, you could damn near twist these cars into a pretzel. For the Chevrolet platform, this … [Read more...]

The Perfect IROC?

https://youtu.be/NHVgysHVOAU The Third-Gen Camaro's are a bit of a cousin in the Camaro line. The hey-day of muscle cars ended with the second gen, the fourth-gen got the powerful LS engine but the third-gen just never seemed to got the appreciation that the other generations did. Personally, I love the third-gen Camaros. Yes they are boxy, but there is just something tough … [Read more...]

Converting From Two Leaf Springs To A Four Link Coil-Over

The trusty ol' leaf spring. It's been holding up vehicles from trucks, cars and even horse drawn wagons for over a hundred years. It's one design that's withstood the test of time and is still being used today. The leaf spring is just about as simple as it can get in its design - a piece of metal that springs back into shape after you apply force to it. They can be stacked … [Read more...]

Goodguys 29th West Coast Nationals

  Photos and Text by Tony Huntimer So it all started back in 2001… Not Goodguys. I’m talking about when I started writing my first book.

I was drawn in by the interesting paint color, killer wheels and a … [Read more...]

Chance of a lifetime! The Part Deux!

Story by: Tony Huntimer First, with Big Red in Columbus and then with Adam Carolla! Somebody pinch me. I’ve been listening to Adam’s nasally drone since Loveline back in 1996! His drone is much like mine, but he’s funny. I personally enjoy Adam’s comedy. So much so, that I partake in his many different podcasts on a daily basis. Not only does he have an entertainment … [Read more...]
