spark joy

Not to put too fine a point on it, but Marie Kondo would lose her mind if she had to work with car people. If the famous clutter killer is on your radar, you know exactly what I mean. If not, let me explain. Marie Kondo is a petite Japanese woman who’s having an outsized influence in popular culture these days. Her bestselling books and popular Netflix TV series take a unique approach to one’s belongings and how to keep them tidy. In essence, it boils down to this: If something you own doesn’t “spark joy” when you hold it, it’s time to thank that particular thing and send it away. By “spark joy,” she means your whole body should perk up, literally, when holding it, as opposed to feeling let…

legacy of justice

Sometimes we take the title of this department figuratively, but this time it’s literal. The two young men in their small Kansas hometown are Ed and Lawrence “Zeke” Justice, brothers whose lubrication products and racing sponsorships would reach the highest echelons of motorsport in Indy Car, NASCAR, NHRA, and IMSA, to name just a few. Ed is sitting in the brothers’ very first race car. Zeke, who preferred motorcycles, is astride a well-dressed Harley. It was the boys’ mother, Anna, who kindled the flame of their mechanical passion by encouraging them to fix, rent, and sell bicycles, just one way the large Justice family made their way through the Great Depression. It wasn’t long before Ed and Zeke applied their newfound talents to repairing automobiles in the neighborhood. Early in their teen…

hot rods, roth & von dutch at rm sotheby’s petersen auction

RM Sotheby’s closed its 2018 auction season in December with an eclectic sale at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. The 64 vehicles and 77 lots of memorabilia on offer ranged from high-brow to low, mixing exotic European sports cars and art by Von Dutch and Ed Roth. Headlines were made when a 1956 Ferrari 290 MM, a Scaglietti-bodied Scuderia Ferrari Works car driven by the likes of Juan Manuel Fangio, Phil Hill, and Stirling Moss, fetched $22,005,000, putting it on the list of the top 10 most valuable cars ever sold at auction. The sale generated $39.8 million in total sales, with an 88 percent sell-through rate. Among the several historic hot rods and custom cars consigned to the sale, the highest selling price of $252,000 was paid for a…

ambr alert: george poteet’s ’36 ford wins the big one

Memphis, Tennessee’s George Poteet is no stranger to the pages of hot rod magazines. His cars have been the subject of multiple articles over the years. You might also know him for being the owner/driver of the piston-powered Speed Demon, a Bonneville racer that reached speeds in excess of 450 mph on multiple occasions. Always ready to take up a new challenge, Poteet set a goal to enter a worthy candidate in the 2019 Grand National Roadster Show’s America’s Most Beautiful Roadster (AMBR) competition, with help from Eric Peratt and his team at Pinkee’s Rod Shop in Windsor, Colorado. The result of their collaboration is a ’36 Ford dubbed the 3-Penny Roadster, a model rarely entered in the field since the show’s inception in 1950. Its concept might differ from what…

more navarro speed parts

Elsewhere in this issue is a profile of prolific speed parts pioneer Barney Navarro and his rolling R&D mule, the No. 31 Model T roadster. Author Scotty Gosson’s research also turned up this intake manifold, made by Navarro Engineering for Chrysler Corporation insider Norm Thatcher. Gosson wrote, “Thatcher prepped two blown Plymouth Sport Furys for the 1964 Bonneville Nationals, plus a naturally aspirated A/Production version, driven by Doug Lovegrove (a crewman on Thatcher’s car). The ‘16-pack’ crossram fed Lovegrove’s Stage III Max Wedge 426, backed with a B&M Hydro-stick trans. The quartet of Carter AFBs flowed a combined 2,200 cfm. Alas, we have no results for Lovegrove’s Bonneville efforts (likely due to rainout conditions), but we do know that he ran mid 11s at 120-plus with the car at the 1964…

scene at the mcacn nickey gasser display

For the past 10 years, muscle car fans in the know have made a pilgrimage to Chicago on the weekend before Thanksgiving for what has become the center of the muscle car universe, the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, or MCACN (mick-KACK-en) for short. It would not be an overstatement to say this show draws the best of the best: the rarest, most desirable 1960s and 1970s cars in the hobby. Cars are restored just for this show. Cars are dragged out of barns and sent there, still covered in dust and droppings. Unrestored cars with just a few thousand miles are inspected for what they will teach others about factory assembly techniques. What the Pebble Beach Concours is for classic cars, MCACN is for muscle. The 2018 show had a…
