HIGHLIGHTS OF THE WEEK

It's been a sad week for those in the Southern California hot rod community. We said goodbye to hot rodder and LA Roadster Club legend Jack Stewart, and our thoughts are with his friends and family. We have a bio on Jack from Richard Parks, and a loving tribute from Anna Marco. We also have a column from Tex Smith, brought to us from his hospital bed where he's recovering from a nasty fall. We send Tex our best and appreciate his thoughts on the industry.  And finally, for those of you in the Northeastern U.S., check out the search for the 2014 Northeast Collector Car below. Does your ride have what it takes to be named a Collector Car of the year?  As always, if you've got stories or car shows to share, send us your description and photos to [email protected]!

Happy Rodding!!
