This week's featured classified ad is a cool blue 1963 Plymouth. It's listed at $35,000 and is located in Spencer Port, NY.  

This sleeper hit is as close to perfect as it can get. With a 440 that puts out about 375 HP, this Plymouth is quick off the line, but still practical.

While you read this, we're in the last two days of full SEMA immersion. We've seen some crazy things and we can't wait to share them with you (when we've recovered from a week in Las Vegas with the best the auto community has to offer). If you happen to still be there, drop by and see us in Booth #24392! Meanwhile, we've got a review of a headlight restoration kit from Surf City Garage, a column from Tex Smith, and a fantastic collection of car shows from our roving reporters, great products from our sponsors, and links to events that we know you'll want to attend.  We'd love to hear what YOU'RE up to, so e-mail us stories of your vehicles, your cruises, your adventures and your next big projects! Happy Rodding!
