letter from the the editor

WELL, WE FINALLY GOT BACK ON THE ROAD AFTER MONTHS OF LOCKDOWNS AND QUARANTINES, AND WE COULDN’T HAVE BEEN MORE EXCITED TO DRIVE 10 HOURS NORTH FOR THE 2020 SOUTHEASTERN TRUCK NATIONALS IN LEBANON, TENNESSEE. It felt good to see the countryside again, and what a great first challenge this was for Stella, our ’95 Chevy 1500 project truck. Putting more than 1,200 miles on this brand-new engine and transmission combo was exactly what she needed to give us confidence that the engine swap is finally fully complete. We’ve had a few gremlins along the way, including a bad header gasket, some loose coolant hoses and even an uncooperative oil cap. Now that they’re all taken care of, Stella is a completely reliable and fully dependable daily driver, which was our…

THE TRUCK YOU SEE BEFORE YOU IS A REVVING, TIRE-BURNING EXAMPLE OF JUST HOW STRONG THE PERFORMANCE TRUCK SCENE IN TEXAS CURRENTLY IS. Now, building badass pickups is nothing new for Texans—let’s make that point very clear. For decades, we’ve had the privilege of featuring countless builds from the Lone Star state, and there is a certain style that comes from this particular region we (and our readers) have grown to love. There’s an old saying that proclaims everything being bigger in Texas, and when it comes to the custom trucks out there, that certainly is the case when looking for huge billet wheels. Large diameters and wide lips are practically the norm out there, which makes a hell of a first impression when seeing how low they like their trucks…

hollister covid-19 spring cruise

THIS WHOLE PANDEMIC THING HAS REALLY PUT A DAMPER ON GET-TOGETHERS, AND AS SERIOUS AS IT IS, A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN HOPING FOR A SENSE OF NORMALCY IN THEIR LIVES. Shows have been cancelled left and right, which means that a lot of vehicle enthusiasts haven’t been able to get their proper fix. The town I live in is pretty small, but somewhat famous—or infamous—depending on how you look at it. Hollister, California. Ever heard of it? If you’ve ever owned a Harley, you have. It’s often touted as the “Birthplace of the American Biker,” and as the location of the legendary “Hollister Riot” of 1947, it shone a huge spotlight on “outlaw biker” culture. Heck, even the Marlon Brando flick “The Wild One” was based on the event. The…
