firing up editor’s letter

Looking back at 2020, I have to say, hands down, it was the worst year I’ve ever experienced. The reasons are obvious and many, so I’ll skip putting together a list. If there was anything positive to come out of living during a global pandemic, it did allow for some additional time spent at home with my family, which hasn’t been a bad thing—although sharing a small converted bedroom office with my wife is a different story. I’ll just leave that one alone for now. After all we’ve gone through this past year, there’s no doubt we’ve been spit out of 2020 stronger and more resilient than expected. From a personal, and an industry, standpoint, if we can pull through the last 12 months, we can pretty much handle anything. Although we…

chevy concepts

Vehicle: “Masq Supernova” Owner: Joe Masquelier When Joe Masquelier contacted me about drawing up his 1966 Nova project, I could tell that he had a solid vision already in his mind of what the car should be. The elements were all there and Joe was kind enough to let me link them together with some interesting design elements. We started out by designing a custom hex-pattern grille insert and then moved around to the front fenders. A batch of front wheelwell vents were presented and we settled on a clean-looking carbon element that would be a custom layup. Sheetmetal hood vents, SPA Technique mirrors, and a custom rear spoiler round out the exterior. Inside the cockpit, we designed a simple dash that center-mounts the Holley digital display. Custom-designed door panels with some carbon elements…

street-friendly 1969 camaro

Owning and driving a top-notch Camaro can be downright addictive. Just ask Vinnie Rosato of Union Beach, New Jersey, and he’ll tell you the same thing. You see, Vinnie always had a thing for Camaros—especially the 1969 models. “I’ve always been a car lover, but the 1969 Camaro has been my favorite model by far,” Vinnie says. He’s obviously not alone in his thoughts, as the 1969 has become the most sought-after F-body design of all time. So, when Vinnie got the urge to design himself a drag car to hit the local dragstrips, there was no question which car would be the basis for his new racer. “I found a suitable 1969 Camaro and turned it into a track terror. I raced it through the ’80s, ’90s, and early ’00s.…

front suspension, brakes, and steering upgrade

When laying out the plans for a fresh build or updating your present ride, it’s always a good idea to try and establish performance goals before getting started. It’s nailing down a budget to work within to be able to score the best technology available. It’s also important to make the determination if you want to have a tame boulevard cruiser, hopped-up Saturday night special, or an aggressive cone-carver. Any way you look at it, if you want to put down the power, you’d better have a rock-solid base to work with, starting with suspension, steering, and braking. On a recent visit to Procision Industries in Taunton, Massachusetts, we met up with shop owner Pat O’Brien who had recently purchased a 1971 Camaro project. The stripped roller had been blasted clean…
