The Family Time 1963 Chevrolet Chevy II Station Wagon Is Underway! Watch This New Project Come Together!

(Words and Photos by David Carroll)  Where do I begin?  The process started about 2 years ago when I asked a few Norcal Nova friends to be on the lookout for a 3rd row seat equipped early Nova...

The Auction Mistake Corvette Lives Again! Dyno And Dragstrip Time!

One C6 Corvette with a lifetime of hell already seen blows up a transplant engine after making some big-boy power at the strip. Surely, that same Corvette deserves a chance for redemption, right?...

Cheap Racing LUV Still In Progress With Days To Go Before The $3K Hooptie Challenge…And They Shortened The Frame!
