You may have noticed that we have a new logo! We loved the old one but wanted a fresh look for the site, and spring seems like the perfect time to take a new look out on the town.  This week, we've got some great stuff for you: the car show of the week, a great column from Tex Smith on finding vintage tin, a cool Dodge pickup, a shop tour from Big Al, and a Memorial Day Rod Run to honor Don Pennington and help out his family.  There are big events coming up in May: Goodguys Nashville Nats, the NSRA Mid-America event in the Ozarks, the NHRA Southern Nationals and of course tons of local runs and cruises. We love to see them all so if you go, send us the photos and we can share them with everyone! Questions? Comments? Story suggestions? E-mail us at [email protected]!
