El Diablo Magazine

Here’s one I hadn’t seen yet. El Diablo magazine is an online ‘zine that is published over seas and while it does contain a bit of questionable content, it gets away with it by being youthful, fresh, and artistic. It’s hard to throw stones at quality and creativity and El […]

Tom Carsten’s Allard

Sydney Allard, a British fella, designed one hell of a sports car in the early 1950′s and called it the Allard J2. The design was so successful that it’s racing victories made stories around the world. It wasn’t long before American hot rodders were licking their chops trying to get […]

More His… More Traditional

More His… More Traditional

I’ve talked about it in the past, but I love the idea of taking a well built contemporary car and “saving it” back to the traditional side. My good pal Don Moyer showed us a perfect example of this transition while thrashing on his Olds for Detroit this past year. […]
