This newsletter contains highlights from the car showsstoriesevent listingsnew vendorsnew products and classified ads that appeared this week on Visit us daily so you don’t miss anything!


We've got a bunch of great stuff for you all this week. A crash in Burbank, CA has us talking about hot rods and safety, Jim Clark has a new article on installing blinkers, Gunner remembers the original Holley vehicles, and Tex talks back-fence talking.  We've also got some great Pros Picks from the past few NSRA events, and some koul tips from Koul Tools for DIY mods and shop safety.

We also have a correction on a story from last week - we published our piece on the Northeast Collector Car Winners a bit precipitously and the photos failed to appear. So we're linking to it again below so you can see these gorgeous vehicles and their owners.

Don't forget that we're collecting entries for our Virtual Car Show that will run October 15th.  Send in a photo of your vehicle, your name and location with a story about why your vehicle is great, and we'll make it part of the show!

This week's featured classified ad is a 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible. It's listed at $125,000 and is located in Arlington, TX.  

This classic convertible has gone through a frame-off restoration and is powered by a 283 V8.

Russ Nomore Streetrods has built a reputation of building quality fiberglass bodies, chassis and many supporting components. Some of the many things that have made this reputation possible is the hand lay construction on the fiberglass bodies, superior TIG welding on the chassis along with the use of CAD Design/CNC manufactured parts and support to our customer before, during and after the sell.
