firing up editor’s letter

As we continue navigating our way through the muscle car hobby, there seems to be no shortage of changes and innovations. That’s good for us as it keeps things fresh. Decades ago, the average day two mods included a few basic engine bolt-ons consisting of performance carburetors, manifolds, headers, exhausts systems, mufflers, and the like. Aftermarket wheels and tires were a must if you wanted your ’60s muscle car to look cooler than what the factory offered. Over time, upgrades became more elaborate and extensive by way of suspension modifications, full chassis installations, and complete engine swaps. Today, seeing an LS or LT between the framerails of a classic muscle car is more common than finding one with an engine reminiscent of what the car originally came with. When it comes to…

1. GATED SHIFTER Clayton Machine Works’ gated shifter for automatic transmissions allows for virtually any shifter lever and knob combination. The gated, side-detent feature eliminates the need for a shifter button, making gear selection as easy as a flick of the wrist. Each shifter features a neutral safety switch; the shifters are available as complete assemblies (with lever and knob) or can be purchased separately to work with aftermarket levers that have a 7/8-inch bolt spacing mounting scheme such as TREMEC-style shifter levers. All mounting hardware is included. CLAYTON MACHINE WORKS (877) 469-7440 lokar.com 2. GO-FUEL HOSE KIT Whether you’re plumbing a fuel system for use with a carbure-tor or updating to a fuel injection system, FiTech’s new Stainless Braided Fuel Line Kits will help you get the job done right. The stainless steel braided line, available…

chevy concepts

INSTAGRAM @TAVISHIGHLANDER TAVISHIGHLANDER.COM Chris Holstrom Concepts tasked me with helping to restyle an auction-purchased Corvette that was already done. Done is never really the final stage of any classic car though, and this Vette needed some help. A modern driving experience with classic looks is the goal here, and the foundation of this build is an Art Morrison GT Sport chassis with IRS. Up front, there’s a 427ci LS3 topped with Borla stack induction. A T56 handles the gears and Baer 6P 14-inch brakes keep everything in check. The exterior has been kept simple and classic but has an attention to detail that makes it that much nicer than any 1964 ever was when it rolled off the assembly line. Bumpers have been tucked and adjusted, gaps scrutinized, and the fenders/quarters have…

pro touring 1966 chevy nova

FEATURE OF THE MONTH SPONSORED BY OPTIMA BATTERIES Basically every muscle car enthusiast has no problem recalling the person or event that pulled them into the scene. Marc Albright remembers the path quite clearly. “My dad got me into cars as a young kid,” Marc says. “He raced Formula V in his youth, which was always his interest growing up. That passion carried over to me early on, as every year we would go to the Long Beach Grand Prix for my birthday because I had such a love for IndyCars.” With racing and horsepower in his blood, Marc drove a healthy 1969 Nova throughout his high school years. The car was fast and well known within the local street scene. It was his daily driver—his only mode of transportation. Being his…

how to get the most from your air conditioning install

HOW TO GET THE MOST FROM YOUR AIR CONDITIONING INSTALLATION Of all the additions that can be made to any early car for passenger comfort, a modern climate-control system has to be at the top of the list. Riding around on a hot day without A/C can feel like you’re in an oven. When the weather turns cold, it’s even uncomfortable for brass monkeys. Fortunately, we don’t have to suffer due to Mother Nature’s whims no matter what we drive, thanks to Vintage Air. The heater portion of a climate-control system is relatively simple; hot water passes through the small radiator like a heater core with a blower motor to warm the passenger compartment. On the other hand, air conditioning is more complicated; it cools by removing heat and humidity from inside…
