The southern United States is playing host to two great events this weekend: The Goodguys 9th Annual Nashville Nationals and the NHRA Summit Racing Southern Nationals at the Atlanta Dragway.  Both should be a riot of fun, but there are tons of smaller, local shows and cruises that we know you're attending, like this week's featured show: the Shake, Rattle and Roll Spring Car show submitted by Roving Reporter Bing Gatewood! We love to share those shows with readers. Have car shows to share? Send us your description and photos to [email protected]!  We've got some other great stuff for you this week: Tex Smith talks about why Route 40 is overlooked, a Kickstarter campaign is looking to fund a genuinely cool striping tool for wheels and tires, and Gary Rosier brings us the tale of a special '34 Roadster that represents a life-altering decision for its owners.

This week's featured classified ad is a 1933 Plymouth Coupe. It's listed at $27,500 and is located in Idaho Falls, ID.  

This cool coupe features a steel body, flat black exterior and gold/black interior. It's powered by a 355 cu in small block Chevy with a 671 blower.
