AS MOST RELEVANT COMPANIES CAN ATTEST, EVOLVING WITH THE LANDSCAPE THAT SURROUNDS THE INDUSTRY IN WHICH YOUR DEMOGRAPHIC THRIVES IS A MANDATORY PROCESS DURING DAY-TO-DAY OPERATIONS. As a media company in 2021, we can’t just stick to what we’ve been doing great for the last 21 years. We have to continue being great at print while learning and developing new and interesting forms of media to keep our audience entertained. It’s a delicate balance between quality and quantity, and we think we’re doing a pretty good job at keeping up with the pack.

ROUSH PERFORMANCE TAKING PRE-ORDERS FOR ITS OFF-ROAD READY 2021 F-150 ROUSH Performance has announced that its 2021 F-150 is now available for pre-order.

WE LIVE IN AN AGE OF INSTANT GRATIFICATION, BUT THE OLD SAYING, “IF YOU WANT IT BAD, YOU GET IT BAD,” CERTAINLY APPLIES WHEN THE CREATIVE PROCESS IS HURRIED. Great art takes whatever time it takes, especially when you are talking about building award-winning custom trucks. The combination of imagination and craftsmanship is a delicate blend that can’t be rushed, often needing years before the truck first rolls into the winner’s circle. Mel White from Boynton Beach, Florida, understands the methodical approach to success. “GREAT ART TAKES WHATEVER TIME IT TAKES, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT BUILDING AWARD-WINNING CUSTOM TRUCKS.” “I started work on my Pro-Street Chevrolet in my late 30s, and now that I’m 50, it’s finally complete,” Mel says. “The construction process had lots of hiccups along the way. Things…

EVERY NOW AND THEN, WE MUST RESET OUR MINDS WHEN PLANNING OUT A NEW PROJECT. That was the case for Henry as he is no newbie to the custom scene. His past builds involved classic cars and a few modern muscle cars that he would take to local car shows. So, this time around, he wanted to change things up a bit and build a sport truck. After seeing the sport truck scene grow larger and larger, Henry wanted his 2000 Chevy extended cab Silverado to be able to lay out on the ground as well as have plenty of power at any stoplight to take on any unsuspecting sports cars. The stock 5.3L motor was a good candidate to install a ProCharger’s high output intercooled system with P-1SC set to…
