staying safe out there

We usually try to keep things on the lighter side here, but sometimes a serious topic needs to be brought up. This is about safety and how a small thing can lead to big consequences. Many of our hot rods don’t see a ton of street miles compared to our daily drivers, and therein lies the rub. You see, parts don’t just wear with use, they also wear over time. That’s why oil change intervals have time, as well as mileage, attached. This also applies to tires. If you drive your Chevy a few hundred, or even a few thousand, miles a year then chances are they are going to age out well before they wear out. Yeah, you’ll look at the tread and think they are great, but, in…

double deception

“Double Deception” was the title of a Dec. 1965 Hot Rod magazine feature on Don Nowell’s 1937 Chevy. What was deceptive about this cool B/Gasser? “Outward appearances of Don Nowell’s ’37 Chevy suggest a docile piece of transportation,” read the story’s subhead. “But the hidden craftsmanship and performance have earned it awards at both shows and drags.” We also know—and maybe this was left out of the story during editing—that the car started life as a 1938 coupe. When Don bought it as a roller in 1960, it had been a Southern California dry lakes racer. Don intended to drag race the car, and among the changes he made was to replace the car’s original steel front end with a tilt fiberglass nose using a hood, hood sides, and fenders splashed from…

split decision

Making the choice to build a custom muscle car is not one to be taken lightly. For Dave and Jamie Smith of Blue Springs, Missouri, the stunning twin-turbo ’71 Camaro you see here came after much discussion and deliberation. The longtime car lovers are fixated on all things automotive related and wanted to own a car that turned heads no matter where it was displayed. “We love cars, plain and simple. When we aren’t watching sports on TV the channel is usually tuned to some car restoration, auto auction programming, or movie about a car,” says Dave. “A few years ago, Jamie and I decided we wanted to see what kind of creation we could come up with. We wanted the looks to stay true to the original car in most respects,…

one stop g-stock!

Chevrolet brought us a mighty handsome second-gen Chevelle with its broad-shouldered quarter-panels, carefully chiseled grille, twinset headlights, and deep inset backlite for a slippery aerodynamic demeanor. Inside, these good-looking Chevelles deserve exciting and informative full instrumentation designed specifically for enthusiasts. Classic Instruments saw the need and provided us with a full set of gauges and a drop-in, perfect-fit Classic Dash instrument panel insert for our Chevelle project. We’re working with a base Chevelle 300 sedan, which was long on function, but not much on bling. That’s why we looked to Classic Instruments for solutions. “These are our G-Stock series instruments mounted in a Classic Dash panel for 1966-’67 Chevelles,” Devin Butterbrodt of Classic Instruments told us. “The Classic Dash line includes a selection of dashpanels for a wide variety of classic…

60 years new

When your hobby is your job, it’s always fun to go to work in the morning. When your job is to build cool custom cars, having fun is not only good for your soul but also for the bottom line! That’s how it works at Streetheat Customs in Melbourne, Florida. Gavin Broome and Matt Verzi worked for others for many years before teaming up to create their own business. Boasting more than 30 years of combined automotive experience, this pair of master craftsmen transforms rusted hulks into pristine show winners, exhibited and enjoyed with an active fan base around the world. Their latest, this beautiful 1958 Chevrolet Impala, had a humble beginning. Located on Craigslist, the car was fairly presentable, equipped with its original V-8, Powerglide, and drum brakes. It was…
