Billet Braces: Installing Eddie Motorsports Hood Braces

Installing Eddie Motorsports Hood Braces While we were installing the new Holley LS valve covers on our 1955 Bel Air, we noticed the big ugly bracket supporting the hood.

We've always had a love for the Wagons - you can fit four people plus all their stuff and still cruise! When we saw this one, we knew it would make a great Pro Touring ride. The wagons are a little different than the norm and we've always had a bit of a infatuation with … [Read more...]

The General Lee Goes Postal With QA1 Upgrade!

These cars had massive engines and ran like a bat out of a hell in a straight line but taking a turn at speed resulted in tires screaming for their life.
