Shakedown 1979 // LS swapped Jeep Cherokee Chief

My wife, Amber, and I have always talked about building a muscle car together. She's fond of the first few years of the Mustang; I'd love a Mopar. Maybe a Charger R/T, a Cuda? So many good choices. So anyway, we bought a 1979 Jeep Cherokee Chief lol. Well… I did....

Foxbody Movin’ – low & steady wins the race

So many times do we see the clear divide between a purist’s restoration vs a builder's wild modifications. Rarely do we see the two meet so gracefully as with Andrew Schenk's ‘86 Foxbody Mustang GT. While it may seem the best of both worlds, the reality is, it’s a...

Gramp’s F150 was sitting on 20s, and it juuuuust wasn’t clicking for me.

So I got a wandering eye, and stumbled on these old American Racing wheels for the lowered Bricknose F150… super cheap & super local. 15x10, mega-low offset, old-school 3-spoke style. Curiosity killed the cat, and I copped ‘em!  TIRES: Cooper Cobra Radial GTs in...

KW V3 coilovers on a 944: How low can you go

How low will the new KW V3 coilovers go on a 944?? Lower than this actually lol... but not much. But let me back up & fill you in, because this is an ongoing project/saga. The KW coilovers only come for 'late-model' 944  fitment.  That means models 1985.5 and up....

Stand up Jet skis

Not car related, but do you know what you should buy?? Like right now?? A damn stand up jet ski! Holy crap! So until yesterday, I've had absolutely zero experience with these things. Weirdly, I grew up in Jacksonville Florida, which is a perfect place to own one. In...

Ford Lightning // Electric F-150

So Ford introduced the new electric Lightning F-150, and it pretty much just looks like a regular-ass truck if we’re being honest. But is that good or bad? I mean it certainly has it’s benefits. Full-size truck owners expect a truck to look a certain way, and that way...

Wooley’s Editorial from Issue 56: Losing your cool

I tend to lose my cool when I’m working on cars.  That’s not how I want to be. I hate that about myself. Because it’s bigger than cars; it’s personality flaws. We all know cars can be a royal pain in the ass sometimes… and I’m fine with that. It’s worth it in the end....

Chameleon 450SE (W116) Benz

Time is a necessity to freedom. Meaning - you can’t truly be free if all your time is spoken for. Remember that. Because the people out there with real money?? With opulence?? Often what they DON’T have… is real time to invest into themselves, their passions, or their...

Lifted 2wd Silverado Trophy – LEX Motorsports

You can only drive 1 vehicle at a time… so why not try & build 'everything you love' into 1 vehicle? ? This is Jason Lader’s turbo LS Silverado trophy truck - 2008 2wd. And with this build, the motive was to create something wild, capable, versatile, and street...

The Elements

I never thought much of BMWs... Writing them off mostly as status symbols. See - I like raw & visceral cars. Buuut I ended up buying a 1992 E34 5-series with a manual transmission last year for $500. I did it on a whim, with no particular love for the car other...

Be Your Own

I feel like this car sets some trends, and I think it’s maybe a new direction in this culture, and on its own curve. See – for some reason, the people in the import scene are always their own worst enemy. We’re all copycats when it comes to styling… and playing out...

Mastered at 10k

    I've known Tommi for a long time. Almost a decade. At times, knowing him has been frustrating… at least when it comes to the car scene. Tommi has always been the guy with the coolest shit. No matter if it’s a big-dollar car that he's building, or a...

Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle…Yeah!

The SEMA Show is where the aftermarket industry goes to hard park. It’s a lot of glamor, a lot of indulgence, a lot of excess, a lot of stardom, a lot of big egos, and a lot of big time showin’ off… with a lot of money to back it up. On one hand, it’s the coolest...

Silly Rabbit! …VR6 are the shiz!

This is a pretty good story. Because it shows the evolution and progression of this culture. I hate to sound cliché… but it shows what we can do if we all put our minds to it. As an editor – this is right up my alley. It’s what I look for… it’s what I want to see...

SupercalifragilisticexpialiDOOOPE!cious

Alright get this – I didn’t talk to this guy Gerald for a super-long time. But I did study him while we talked. And I did watch some videos online of his crew. And what I saw was – comfort. These guys are comfortable in their own skin. They’re cool with being who they...

Don't be a…

Alright sloots, wake up and pay attention while I drop some knowledge on you hoes. Marley is the owner of this S14. Yeah – he’s named after Bob, so listen to what the man has to say. I recently had the fine privilege of talking to Mr. Marley… and had the opportunity...

Lic Lic Lic

Stupid Americans have stupid cars these days that are too big for them. And they come with dumb stupid trinkets… like a backup camera for example. Your new SUV has a backup camera? That’s so cool. This Miata only comes with an owner who knows how to f*cking drive and...
