on my plate

KJones@enthusiastnetwork.comI’LL BET ANY amount of money that everyone experiences a feeling of being instantly pissed off at some point in life. I’m including people who are purportedly always calm, never truly bothered by anything, and such.For the most part, I’m one of those folks. I don’t let too many things rattle me to the point of being blood-boiling mad, and I definitely don’t yell or let loose a verbal stream of expletives as a method of finding solace on the infrequent occasions when something actually does get my goad. Calm, cool, and collected. Yes, it’s a cliché, and maintaining all three states of being—at the same time—is a pretty big challenge, but I think I do a decent job of managing things.Well, I’m using my column to confess this month.…

benefits of the power war

john.lehenbauer@motortrend.comBeing a fan of engines that make a lot of power, I’m really excited about the horsepower and torque war that’s currently being waged between the Big Three diesel-truck manufacturers. Ford, GM, and Ram are making huge efforts to one-up each other in the heavy-duty-pickup segment.Honestly, I don’t think their horsepower differences really matter too much when the amount of power they are making today is fully taken into consideration. The “war” seems to be more about bragging rights, no matter how short-lived they may be. This “who has the most power right now” competition is only part of the equation. The companies are building trucks that are also amazingly plush and more technologically advanced than ever.Ram is the first heavy-duty-truck manufacturer to hit the 1,000–lb-ft-of-torque mark with a diesel…

TWENTY-ONE-year-old Brett Young had the good fortune of growing up in a family of gearheads, surrounded by their various street rods, hot rods, muscle cars, and sport trucks. The young diesel mechanic has owned many cars and trucks himself, most of which had oil-burners under the hood. While attending University of Northern Ohio in 2016, he happened upon an ’05 GMC Sierra 2500HD that had a bad encounter with a large tree.Rather than shy away from the wrecked truck as many would have, the intrepid builder opted to trade his running and driving ’97 Dodge Ram 2500 for the totaled regular cab that in two years became the truck of his dreams, thanks to hard work and the help of his family and many friends.The build started with Brett focusing…

RIGHT NOW, you might be wondering why a classic European car is gracing the pages of this truck-focused magazine and who would even build a car that’s as obscure as Marc Terrien’s ’64 Volvo Amazon. Well, first, it is diesel-powered, which makes it unique. Second, Marc’s company, Heritage Driven, actually specializes in projects like this.Heritage Driven is best known for preparing classic import vehicles such as Land Rover Defenders for off-road and overlanding purposes. However, like most shop owners, Marc enjoys having a fun side project to wrench on after hours. For this effort, Marc wanted to build a vehicle he figured was lost and forgotten. The Amazon definitely fits the bill, because original Volvo ads stated the car would not last longer than one would expect it to, and…
