Wow. After yesterday, we just didn't think that LS Fest could get any better. Much to our surprise though, day two blew day one out of the water. There was even more cars, more people and more action than yesterday. Sitting down to write this, it's like we just got off a carousel, and we are trying to figure out what the heck happened. There's just so much action at LS Fest, … [Read more...]

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...]

Going Full Throttle With Lokar Performance

On our 1965 Chevelle, project Teachers Pet, we experienced a problem that many people run across - throttle linkage. This is especially true with motor swaps, and going from a traditional engine with a carburetor to a fuel injected motor with a throttle body. In our case, the original SBC was long gone, and we had installed a warmed up LS2 several years back. In an attempt … [Read more...]

Forgeline Looks Behind To Forge Ahead

In grade school they teach us that we must learn history in order to prevent history from repeating itself. What the teacher meant is that some of the problems facing the world today have already been faced, and some of those we don't want to face again. Just like asking for your parents for advice, learning history can teach us about the future. What if we looked back to the … [Read more...]

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

Special thanks to Classics Daily for the text and photo's! During the Hot Rod Power Tour 2015, I stumbled upon a first-gen Camaro outside of my hotel in St. Louis. A Camaro on the Power Tour is a common thing. However, Jonathan Free’s ’68 stood out from the crowd, which is hard to do with such a common car. I was drawn in by the interesting paint color, killer wheels and a … [Read more...]
