Take a look at this vintage creampuff. John has a long and complicated history with this car. It dates clear back to high school. After being separated from the car for a decade, a friend helped him to relocate it. The teardown began and John delivered the car to a paint shop Read More

1956 Chevy Drag Racer’s Fantasy Ride

December 24th, 2021

This 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air is the rolling embodiment of everything that inspired many of us to build fast cars and seek competition.
