Death Sprint In Terror Canyon

Death Sprint In Terror Canyon

In 1971, three men lined up in Terror Canyon with an eye towards figuring a grudge only to get interrupted by the fuzz. The result was costly… deadly even… and Terror Canyon has NEVER been the same. Amazingly, it was all caught on film: This film was created by Pete […]

Finally…

Finally…

It’s about damned time – 2013 Alliance tags are finally here. I will be spending much of the rest of the week in front of my stamping machine and getting these things out. A big thanks goes out to all of you that have been patient in waiting for these. […]

2013 RCCRC

2013 RCCRC

Every year, my brothers in Australia put on a killer reliability run. I went last year and its hard to describe how natural the whole affair really is. After a while, the funny accents went away, the cars began to drive on the right side of the road, and I […]

So a friend of mine… a friend of ours… a friend of yours… just found out that he is about to be a dad. He doesn’t own a late model car, drives an old car every day, and emailed me looking for advice. As the father of three (7, 4, […]

Junkyard Memories

Junkyard Memories

Some of you can probably relate to this story, as I grew up in the late 70s and early 80s suburbia going to ‘real’ car junkyards as a kid. They used to be those dirty old places on the “other side of the tracks” where dogs roamed the streets and […]
