HIGHLIGHTS OF THE WEEK

 
It's the end of August, and that means two things - summer is ending, and the big Goodguys show at Pleasanton is upon us.  Both are great things, both make us a little sad as they signal the end of sunny day bbqs and sunlight until 8 p.m. So to make up for it we have a great feature from reader Fred Fish, a giveaway car that wouldn't go away, a how-to on brake fittings from Hot Rod M.D. Jim Clark, and finally thoughts from Tex Smith on the American sportscar.  Let us know what YOU are doing to celebrate the end of summer!  E-mail us at [email protected].
