While the east coast is once again getting hammered by terrible weather, and the south tries to figure out why nature is including it in its terrible joke on nice people, we here in California are enjoying sunny skies, mild weather and the Sacramento Autorama this weekend! Sorry folks! To make up for the unfairness of it all, we bring you the latest from the NHRA Winternationals from Pomona, a stolen car, and some great garage shots and field finds! Tex also offers some of his thoughts on the intersection of business and media in the wake of more layoffs in the automotive media world. We hope everyone is staying safe and warm and dreaming of summer days and car shows to come.  Have story suggestions or shows to share? Email us at  [email protected]!

This week's featured classified ad is a numbers matching 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner. It's listed at $44,900 and is located in Prescott Valley, AZ.  

This is a special ordered Roadrunner that was built in the Los Angeles plant. Frame on restoration. No expense spared.
