We can't believe it's almost March, and with that daylight savings time and spring, for most of us. We're looking forward to so many upcoming shows and events, to new finds and great stories from you, our readers. In the meantime, in our Classifieds, we've introduced a new option for folks. You now have the option to list your ad in the Goodguys Classifieds and in the Goodguys Gazette right from Hot Rod Hotline's listing. Check it out, and let us know how you like this new function!  This week, we've got some cool classics for you - a fab '40 Ford, and a '36 Plymouth Coupe, along with SEMA education days. Have a story, a show, a sweet ride, or a great garage to share? E-mail us!
