First, a big thank you to all of our reporters for your excellent work this past weekend covering Detroit, Goodguys, and the March Meet! We love seeing your photos! I know many of you will be attending the NHRA Gatornationals in Floriday this weekend, or the Goodguys show in Texas, and we can't wait to hear about your adventures.

I also wanted to give you a head's up on a few small changes around here - we are in the process of tweaking the site so it works better for everyone, and the banner at the top will now be smaller as a result.  But none of the great things you love on the site have changed, so don't worry! We've also made some updates to our photo upload page ( so if you use that to send us photos, check out our new tutorials.  Again, none of the functions have changed, it just may look a little different. If you have questions, or comments, or want to send in stories, photos, features or ideas, please e-mail us at [email protected]!

This week's featured classified ad is a 1933 Ford 3 Window Coupe. It's listed at $45,000 and is located in Whittier, CA.  

This cool coupe is filled with goodies, including a 400 cu. in. small block Chevy motor, 3.875 stroke, 400R Trans and more!
