reading is fundamental

Nick_Licata@motortrend.com Now that we’ve arrived at a point in time (with me kicking and screaming) where our attention span is rapidly shrinking due to the massive amounts of information that is so easily attainable via the Internet, and particularly through social media, there doesn’t seem to be a “pause button” in sight to slow things down … even a little. Whether you are addicted to Facebook, Instagram, or spend a good amount of time thumbing your way through the Twittersphere, like millions of people worldwide, you are absorbing tons of info (much of it sketchy in the truth department) in a short amount of time. Add to that the many binge-worthy television shows available through Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, and our “go-to,” MotorTrend, our brains are way up on…

From the McCarthy Era Kentucky’s Jack McCarthy checked off a bucket list item during the 2019 NHRA Lucas Oil Winternationals. Following his recent retirement, for the first time in his long racing history he was able to campaign his iconic 1960 Chevy Kingswood wagon at that fabled season-opening event. Jack made the 2,500-mile tow (each way), which is something he had long desired to do. McCarthy has been racing this machine since 1980, beginning all that with his then-partner M.J. Quinn. Over the years, the car has seen only slight modifications. “It’s really an old-school Junior Stocker that still races,” he confirmed. The race car has seen action in U/SA and R/SA, depending on weight, all the time using a 283ci (230hp) engine and a three-speed transmission. Jack has lost count…

the cobbler’s new kicks

“He who makes shoes goes barefoot himself.” Though the proverb isn’t as common as it was in the 17th century when it was first recorded, the idea is enduring. Those who do for others seldom have the time, money, or both to do for themselves. It explains why so few car builders have a functional hot rod of their own. Chris Holstrom hasn’t had a personal project—at least a running, functional one—since 2008, the year he sold his 1968 Camaro to establish his company, Chris Holstrom Concepts. The number 10 has a kind of significance to it, especially when rendered in years. “I was sick and tired of not having anything of my own,” he laments. So in early 2018, he took action to get back what started him in the…

engine blueprinting tips, part 2

In Part 1 of this series (July 2019) we offered a few nuggets on how to measure proper bearing clearances and other techniques. This month we’ll expand on those ideas with a few more. By design, we are only able to deliver just the basics as we could easily do a story on each of these separate techniques. But this initial foray into the world of engine blueprinting will give entry-level engine builders an idea of what it takes to properly assemble an engine. With all the effort and expense that goes into building an engine, including the machine work, custom pistons, bearings, and valvetrain parts, it only makes sense to assemble the engine as accurately and as cleanly as possible. This story will set you on the right path…

In a nutshell, this is what happened with Todd Cherniak’s Nova. “My neighbor Glen Dixon put a one-piece floorpan in it. My wife, Stephanie, helped me put the motor and the rearend in. Car runs on pump gas. I drive it to work a lot. We love to take the kids cruising in it.” More on the cruising part later. Todd’s a working man, someone who knew he’d have to go it mainly on his own but also knowing he’d have the support of those close beside him, as well as his accumulated expertise. He began his trip into history when he was 16 and hungry, put a toe in the doorway and flexed the ropes by working at automotive shops where he experienced every dirty facet of the automobile. As for…
