PATRIOTS DINER CRUISE NIGHTS JIM WEICHERDING Patriots Diner is a nostalgia style diner located in the heart of Woonsocket, Rhode Island. Their food is great! Service impeccable and good prices for any family looking for a night out from cooking without breaking the bank in order to do so. An added feature this year will be their Monday Cruise Nights that begin on Monday, May 7th, 2018 at 6pm until dark. This centrally located diner has a very large and accommodating parking lot for quite a few classic cars and trucks along with plenty of spectator parking. The calling card to these new Monday Cruise Nights is that the popular Buckleupallofus Giant Balloon Cartoon Character reminding Kids about “Buckle Up!” and Traffic Safety will also be a showcase attraction for kids and families. That’s what cruise nights and classic auto shows should be all about; kids and families. For starters, we should be bringing more kids to classic auto shows and cruise nights in order to keep this automotive culture and hobby alive for years to come and it’s a great way to get out of the house and enjoy good company and appreciate where all of this came from decades before now. Buckleupallofus Family Cruise Nights and Classic Auto Shows takes the traditional venues and adds a whole new creative element that can have a positive affect on kids and families lives. Safety should be priority one and combining that with entertainment and events like this one has incredible value for everybody. Host Cruise Night and Classic Auto Show locations like restaurants and diners can benefit from adding a cool kids friendly giant dinosaur attraction reminding them about their safety and providing everyone with Sponsored (Take Home) Educational & Creative Content and Formats that will have an influence on their daily lives. Everyone attending these automotive venues is arriving and leaving in vehicles. Traffic Safety is the key component to add to all of these types of venues taking place practically everywhere across this region and nationwide week, after week, month, after month, until the season ends late October here in New England. Patriots Diner hosts the new Buckleupallofus Cruise Nights every Monday, weather permitting, throughout the Cruisin Season. We will have a DJ playing all of your favorite Oldies and Classic Rock Hits, Kids Coloring Contests, Prizes, Kids Meals Deals, Celebrity Meet & Greets, Give-Aways and more. Woonsocket Police Officers, Firefighters and EMT’s will be visiting often 14| Motorhead Magazine - April 2018

to pass out Kids Safety Materials and Coloring Formats and to show off their cool vehicles and apparatus to the kids. This will be fun for the entire family and we look forward to seeing you there starting this May, 7th at 6pm. Bring your cool rides to show off to all of the spectators and lets turn this weekly Buckleupallofus Family Cruise Night into the biggest venue in Rhode Island every week. No 50/50. No raffles. No pressures. No vehicle judging. We had a lot of great classic cars and trucks showcase last September at our impromptu gathering and that was generated just by wordof-mouth. Everyone loved the relaxed atmosphere and stress free classic auto show and I was asked to do the same thing weekly this year by those vehicle owners and spectators. That is what prompted us to start a Buckleupallofus Family Cruise Night this season. Everyone will be just relaxing while enjoying great songs, great food and great company surrounded by some great classic cars and trucks on a rainfree Monday Night. What else can you ask for? See you soon. And remember; “Buckle Up For Safety!”

RACING:

By SERAFINO “JIMMY” CAZZANI Not many activities can match a weekend of racing! Boats, cars, bikes anything! The sights, sounds and scents leave memories and impressions that last a lifetime. The sweet scent of race fuel, the eye irritating nitro and the aromas from vendors serving delicacies that range from hot dogs to barbeque and everything in between. The racing community in general are a traveling troupe of entertainers! We go from event to event, put on the show and engage with our fans.

FAMILY, FRIENDS, EXCITEMENT!

The racing family may be a little dysfunctional but ultimately we are family! The camaraderie is amazing. If you have a hiccup, no problem. Your family is there, even your perceived nemesis will offer parts, wrenches, free labor and even a place to sleep if all local hotels are booked! Lol Our events are typically community oriented festivals which consist of pit displays, boat parades and the always heavily attended block parties. On Friday nights Law Enforcement shut down a section of the city we’re visiting so we may set up for the block party. It’s exciting to see 40 + race teams along with their boats parked on Main St U.S.A. We host activities for families and children such as limbo, face painting, dancing and this year I may even try singing.....never mind bad idea. These displays give us an opportunity to represent our sponsors, engage with the fans, sign autographs and pass out sponsor/boat photos. I think the best part of our show is introducing youngsters to our sport and letting them see they can achieve anything they desire if they work at it. We meet many interesting people and you know anywhere we go someone will say “Hey, you guys are from Rhode Island!? So am I” I have people sign and draw on the boat all weekend. It’s an activity everyone looks forward to and transforms the boat into a mosaic as the artwork accumulates. So Moms and Dads skip the zoo, the museum or the park for a day and work a motorsport event into your summer plans!

Outlaw Run Beyond The Book Written by Jim Weicherding / Etch turns the ignition key and then hits the garage door switch to open the bay door. In an instance, the power plant GTO lunges forward and smashes through the closed garage doors, crosses the front lot and fishtails onto the black top headed to the nearest highway on ramp about five miles down the back road. The Pontiac nearly clips two pursuing police cars coming from the opposite direction but Etch is able to stabilize the classic muscle car enough to avoid metal on metal contact at a high rate of speed. The GTO splits both police cruisers and screams down the roadway with loud exhaust and squealing rear tires. The police cars quickly pull u-turns crossing paths with each other hoping to catch the fleeing OUTLAW GTO and capture this menace behind the wheel once, and for all. Etch glances into his rear view mirror and sees flashing red and blue overhead lights closing in fast. He doesn’t

want to risk crashing his beloved GTO so he in no way has the gas pedal near the floor mat under his feet. The police cars are now advancing and his GTO is not pulling away from either one of these police officers. Etch finally sees the highway on ramp sign and knows he is less than a half a mile from entering onto the freeway. The police cars are on his rear bumper as Etch tries to avoid being pitted and lose control of his muscle car. He accelerates a little more by pressing on the gas pedal with a slight push from his black work boots. A moment later, he sees exactly what he is looking for; the freeway. The oil slick black GTO leans to the right and heads onto the on ramp with the two police cruisers in hot pursuit. Etch looks ahead of his point of entrance and watches for any highway traffic he may have to avoid as he exits the off ramp trying to escape the two pursuing police vehicles close behind his classic muscle car. He sees a couple of big rigs and some approaching

traffic but can’t slow down now. He needs to do some shifty driving in order to avoid any contact with those highway vehicles. Especially either one of those big rigs. That could spell disaster for himself and possibly some other innocent drivers who happen to be nearby when the Outlaw GTO merges onto the highway. Etch glances back into his side view and rear view mirrors and still sees those two police vehicles in hot pursuit. “They are not going to go away easy,” said, Etch under his breath. Etch mats the gas pedal and sees those two big rigs closing in on his merge point of access to the highway and cranks up his stereo. “If this is how this ends, I’m going out loud!”

Paintworks Feature Car: 1969 Mustang Fastback JED GREEKE Hot Rod City is located at 99 Oak St. in Dover NH. It’s a playground for gearheads, motorcycle enthusiast, music lovers and foodies alike! We are compromised of RPM’s Motorcycle shop, Division Custom Fab Cycle, Ralph’s House of Tone, Far Out Diner and of course Paintworks Unlimited! No matter what your car, motorcycle, music or food needs are we have you covered! Paintworks Unlimited is a busy shop as gearheads across New England get ready for the cruising season! Car shows, local cruises, rod runs or NSRA events, no matter which is your choice we can get you ready! We currently have a wide array of cars in the shop, varying from a classic 1927 Chrysler to a true American Muscle car, the 1971 Camaro! Our feature car this month is a 1969 Mustang Fastback! Like so many of the cars we see this one was in rough shape when she rolled in the door, and not under her own power. Her owner, Charlie, originally owned the vehicle back in 1992. At that time it was mostly original, with seats and door skins on the interior, no carpet or headliner. He eventually sold the car in 1996 to find it again in 2017 with yet another owner and decided it was time to get it back and give it the royal treatment. Next stop, Paintworks Unlimited!!! No detail is being overlooked in this restoration from the fitment, the paint, and the gaps up to

From its humble beginnings to now, this Mustang is being given the royal treatment and the finished product will be amazing! Doesn’t matter if you’re a Ford guy or gal, you won’t be able to

the running gear. This beauty is covered in a single stage urethane black paint polished until it looks like a mirror, look at that picture! This 69 gets its pulse form a 1972-351 Cleveland (from the owners Gran Torino) pushing close to 500 ponies! Wilwood brakes wrapped in Foose rims and Hankook tires provide the stopping power, while riding smooth on a Ridetech coil over suspension. The interior is complimented by a factory style Dakota Digital instrument cluster and Vintage Air climate control.

There’s really no other felling like taking delivery of your first Mustang or Muscle Car, especially when you’re in your early teenage years. The first time you lay eyes on that aggressive stance, the first smell of the leather interior, the first feeling of that rumble that happens after your first turn of the key. Every one of us can recall what seemed like the greatest day of our life when we got behind the wheel of our very own piece of American History. For Jason Pjojian of Cranston RI, that amazing sense of ownership and pride came to reality this past summer when he got his hands on his immaculate 1997 SVT COBRA.

OFFERING CLASSES FOR SHOOTING AND HOME PROTECTION

Superior Quality. Superior Service

BUY SELL TRADE CONSIGN

Jason is the third owner of the car, but both of the first two owners were ridiculously obsessed with keeping it clean, garaged, and well maintained. As of this article the car only has 34,000 miles and doesn’t seem to have a single chip, scratch, or fingerprint anywhere on it. Jason credits the car’s current appearance and brilliant shine to his father Bob Pjojian, who shared many of his detailing secrets. Bob is currently in search of a new 2015 Mustang GT Convertible, which will be his fourth Mustang. So we know that Jason has a great role model to follow. From the outside, the car appears to be mostly stock, with visual enhancements coming from only a handful of tasteful modifications. A Saleen S281 spoiler replaces the factory pedestal spoiler and 18 inch Steeda Pentar wheels shine brilliantly at each corner.

EASTCOAST MOTORSPORTS RESTORATION: ‘69 CHEVELLE

This 1969 SS396 Chevelle was purchased 25 years ago and was in pieces. It had been cut up and rear halved to be a race car and never was completed. We started by replacing the frame then put in a new one piece trunk with two rear quarters. The fender, doors, hood and trunk were still original to the car and it is a factor SS396. We used Billy the Kid at Performance Engines, Torrington, CT, who built us a pump gas engine 565 cu. in. with 730 hp. The suspension is all updated with UMI Performance Stage 3 Handling Kit to make it drive more modern. The body and paint was done by Eastcoast Motorsports, LLC using triple black base coat/clear coat, sanded and buffed to a mirror finish. This car was built by Eastcoast Motorsports, LLC in a matter of two years.

New England X-275 a 2

TOM McCARTHY

New England X-275 drag racing action is just around the corner with the first race slated for May 5th, 2018, at New England Dragway. This will kick off a six race series for the radial-tire racers and their radical machines. This season will include four events competing at New England Dragway and two at Lebanon Valley Dragway. For aggregate points, racers will claim their best five point races for the season to tally their point totals. So racers can drop a race if need be and still be in the thick of the championship points race. However, there is a ten point bonus reward at the end of the year for any racer who competes in all six events.

The NE X-275 racers include some of the best door-car drag racers in New England, like: Mark and Jack Dykeman, Keith Douglas, Robert Baptista, Danny Reis, Derek Mota, Tim Dutton, Dan Christopher, Tommy DePriest, Joey Furtado, Don Curtis, Scott MacDonald, Matt and Angelo Lombardi, Joey Mauro, Jake Conant, Jeff Taylor, Gary Gonzalez, Jim Coger, Dan Filippelo, Dan Christopher, Jim Costa, Andrew DeMarco, Mij Regoc, Glen Fernandez, Chris Magnano, Scott Ulman, Angelo Tranquillo, and Eric LaFerrier.

X-275 cars race only on drag radial tires and the cars are vicious! Wheel standing, sideways action, the type that puts fans in the stands, is a hallmark of X-275 racing. Another element the fans and racers enjoy about this racing is the diversity of

Andrew DeMarco has a vicious Mustang he enjoys destroying tires with.

the car types competing in the class. It’s more than just Ford Vs Chevy, it’s boosted versus, nitrous cars, versus mountain motor; the power combinations are quite diverse. Yet the bottom line remains the same for this 1/8th mile, heads-up class – first to the stripe wins. Low four-second elapsed times are the norm at speeds close to 160 MPH are standard for these cars which push close to 1,000 HP. Many of the current New England X-275 racers who race locally, also race on the national X-275 event scene. Mark Dykeman and his well known “Blue Goose” recently advanced to the semi-final round of Lights Out 9, one of the biggest events that will run this season. Mark has been pecking away at the power of his big, blue Camaro and he has it at championship level where he can compete with the best of the best. And he’s not alone. Keith Douglas and Jake Conant were also giving it heck at LO-9. New England X-275 racers have been doing so well with their cars and power production they were invited to race in front of the biggest drag racing crowd of 2017, at the NHRA New England Nationals. The big NHRA Mello Yello series attracts thousands of spectators annually, as well as the biggest names in drag racing. When a drag racer finds themselves competing at the same drag racing event with John Force and Tony Schumacher in the line-up, that’s as big as it gets. It was quite an honor for the X-275 teams to perform at that event. The top teams included: Robert Baptista, Tommy DePriest, Mark Dykeman, Aaron Bates, Derek Mota, Rich Brudder, Manny Bunginga, and Mean Dean Marinis, who won the event dubbed “The Pilgrimage.” There are major changes to the NE X-275 program ahead in 2018. The leader of the class, Torrey Browne has moved from the South Shore area of Massachusetts to a new home down-south, so Torrey will not be running the events each meeting, as he has for years now. Torrey, a hard core drag racer, has piloted this class, acting as the racer liaison with New England Dragway track operations. This coordination is vital to smooth racing during the course of a race day. It’s a big deal when X-275


a 2018 Season Preview The six events for the season are May 5th at New England Dragway, June 6th at New England Dragway, July 14th at Lebanon Valley Dragway, August 4th at New England Dragway, September 5th at Lebanon Valley Dragway and they finish out the season on October 6th, at New England Dragway. Don Curtis has one of the fastest and quickest P/U trucks you’ll ever see.

Jake Conant has Pro Charger peaking through the hood of his Mustang.

Keith Corriea is a fast guy from the two-wheel world heading up X-275 this year.

Keith Douglas put up some towering wheel stands at Lights Out 9 this year.

Mark Dykeman goes faster and quicker every year with his Blue Goose Camaro.

Robert Baptista won the New England X-275 class in 2017: beware the black Camaro.

If you like race cars that look like every day cars you see on the street, but can wheel stand the height of the starting line Christmas tree, come up to New England Dragway or Lebanon Valley Dragway on the dates mentioned here and enjoy the action. Be sure to look up NE X-275 online, or visit the race track of your choice online, for full details.

cars are called to the lanes, the track-prep and the cars must be in sync when it’s time to race. So when Torrey decided to move south recently, a change of leadership became necessary for the local racers. New for 2018 will be a change at the helm of the good ship NE X-275. There is a new Captain in charge steering things in a new direction. Keith Correia Scott MacDonald’s silver bullet Bow-Tie is a beast! of Westport, MA, will now be the main-man for the NE X-275 program. Keith has been a part of the drag racing scene for over a decade and is a car guy at heart. But he is best known to New England racers as a Torrey Browne served New England X-275 for years and motorcycle will still be an advisor after his move south. drag racer who has piloted the fast stuff, including Pro Street motorcycles. The six-second, 200 mph kind, without wheelie bars. Keith knows fast and understands track conditions: he’s no stranger to the high end of high performance. Keith and his wife Laurie will be working closely with all the racers and the race tracks throughout 2018.

1990 MERCURY COUGAR XR7

ROB MAY

Rod Maksimovich owns this 1990 Mercury Cougar XR7. Married, soon to have their first kid, and along with this cat, they make their den in Imperial, Missouri. “My father and I built this car during my college years, driving home from college nearly every weekend to wrench on it. This car also was the spark that fueled the startup of my now side-business, AzzKicker Cars.” A twilight blue metallic ‘89 Mercury Cougar LS was Rod’s first car. While he loved it, soon he was on the hunt for another to build up while using the ‘89 as a daily driver. Rod bought the ‘90 for only $200 in 2001. 1989 / ‘90 Mercury Cougar XR7’s offered a supercharged 3.8L V6. Sadly, upon purchase, the ’90 had a healthy rod knock, but the body was in excellent shape. The drivetrain was ripped out, and a friend at St. Louis Auto Body painted the car in the same hue as the ‘89. A ‘94 Mark VIII 4.6L-4V engine and the IRS subframe from a ‘94 Mark VIII replaced the stock stuff. A ‘97 4.6L Thunderbird EEC-V gained OBD-II capability/tenability. In August 2005, dyno rated at 243 rwhp / 248 rwtq in NA form, the cat ran 13.9’s at the drag strip. Desiring more power, in December 2006, a it didn’t last long. The engine spun a rod bearing and quickly trashed itself. Out came the engine for a rebuild. The stroke increased to 3.75”, dropped the compression to 8.9:1, installed Ford GT Supercar cams, and coatings were applied to everything. Alan Brown of DirtyDog Performance helped rebuild the transmission. Rod’s father grabbed the hood from the now defunct first car, cut a hole in it to clear the supercharger, then formed a scoop.

Kenne Bell 2.1L twin-screw SC was bolted on netting 313 rwhp. However,

At a national meet in October 2007, the car made its first passes running 12.7’s. In 2010, a Snow Performance methanol injection system allowed for a smaller blower pulley and 12.0’s at the track. His shelf is full of trophies from various car shows and races. Driving the car three to four times a week, cruising down the highway is comfortable. Mashing the throttle is exciting, to say the least. What it does very well is produce smoke from the tires.

YEAR

By James N. Viara At an early age, the Viara brothers, Jim, Manny and Ralph worked their father’s farm. There were many trucks there and they soon learned the skills and the fun of driving trucks and hearing the noise of the loud engines. The louder the better! On their way to school, they would pass the Rumford Fire Station, gazing wide-eyed at the beauty of those big red trucks. Jim’s love for fire trucks had begun. As they grew older, Manny loved mechanics and Jim loved antiques; particularly restoring vehicles. Jim’s first restoration was a 1927 Pierce Arrow, which won the Vandeveer Trophy, the top prize, at the National Pierce Arrow Show. Along the way, he and his brother, Manny, restored a 1941 Willys, red, with a 572 Chevy blown engine, 950 HP. Jim then started buying old fire trucks. He found out that when the trucks were taken out of service during the 1900 teen years, they were converted to “Speedsters”. The “rich and famous” would rebuild these Speedsters on the fire truck frame using parts from cars and other trucks. The six cylinder engine of 855 cubic inches made the Speedster ideal for racing. The cars were raced at tracks around the country, including the Indianapolis Speedway. The estimated top speed at that time was 60-70 MPH. Through Manny Souza, who owned a welding shop in East Providence, RI, Jim found and bought a Speedster from a friend of his. The Speedster needed a lot of work. Jim and Manny decided to tackle the challenge of restoring the Speedster. They knew they would either have to find the parts or fabricate them themselves. Their first job was to rebuild the engine. Once completed, nickel plating was added. Next came the work on the starter, generator, water pump, carburetor and magneto. The frame was in somewhat good condition. They built a new body and added a fuel tank. The fenders were a problem. They were important because they guarded the chains that drove the rear tires. It took almost three months to get the fenders just right so they could bolt onto the body properly. There were no floors or seats on the truck. A floor was installed with stainless steel molding. The work was tedious. A seat from another fire truck was installed. Next, they worked on installing all the gauges-making them fit properly. Complete rewiring of the entire truck was a necessity. A monocle windshield was installed on the steering column (for the driver only). The original hood covered the entire engine. As they wanted the engine to be on display, they kept the frame and built and new hood that covered only the top of the engine. It was lined with rivets to give it that nice antique look. The original radiator wasn’t is the worst shape. It was dressed up with German silver and brass wings were added to the radiator cap. The truck was sand blasted then painted “Fire Engine Red” with black pin striping to add a nice touch. The project was a “labor of

SPEEDSTERS Continued from previous page love” between Jim, Manny and Ralph. The plan was to make the Speedster stand out. Everybody had ideas as to how to do so. Once an idea was approved, the thought was “How can we do it?”. As a result, many items on the vehicle were added and/or changed.

Over time, Jim has acquired all different types and sizes of fire trucks. He enjoys driving the trucks and seeing them restored to new life. The Speedster always draws the biggest crowd; chances are, no one has seen anything like it. With three speeds, it makes a great roaring sound. Let’s just say you can hear it coming! The guys enjoyed working together on this project so much that they are now in the process of rebuilding another Speedster!

20 years later a young man named Vin Latona, Joe’s son acquires a late model Monte Carlo intent on creating a street sleeper drag car. Vin described the car powered by a mild 355 as a “dud”. He and his partner promptly had a “Killer” 377 built by a local Long Island engine shop and Vin said “she’s still a dud!” Unfortunately at the track dialing in on motor only the “pro built” 377 expired on it’s second pass. Frustration and disappointment is compounded when Vin dissects the motor to discover it’s only a stock 350 with mismatched heads!

After negotiating with the un-named, unscrupulous engine shop Vin decides to scour dad’s scrap heap of treasures. Most car guys have old parts hidden somewhere all covered in dust. The caveat here is that these spares are abused leftovers of the Fever boat’s fabled high revving 375’s which were there for the taking. Vin says the challenge was finding 8 matching rods and 8 pistons. He did however find matching flat black Bo Laws modded Holley carbs and if you remember Bo Laws your showing your age! With an old block, a crank with one bruised journal an unknown roller cam with lifters and some used crane gold rockers the build commences. I can tell you from experience some of our best screaming street engines were built from good junk. Loose, free revin’ oil burnin’ screamers just work! The biggest investment was in a set of used AFR heads capped with one of Fever’s origi-

To handle the power Vin installed a modified Buick Grand National differential and as he said “I had Crazy Dons do a mini tub on the rear frame rail, a full chromoly roll bar, and a few other chassis modifications to keep the car as stock as possible suspension wise and maintain a full interior, yet be safe and efficient for the track.” With a used plate nitrous system of unknown power this Monte with the heart of Fever ran wheelstanding 9.30s through a glide first time out. After some some adjustments and a cylinder head swap Vin cracked the 8’s. Not bad for a “Street car” that hits the local cruise nights and has occasionally taken an unsuspecting victim’s $$!

RI DMV

NIGHTMARES JIM WEICHERDING “If it’s not broken, try and fix it anyway!” If you are a Rhode Island resident and own a commercial pick up truck then you know what the month of March is; “It’s Truck Month.” Normally, the Rhode Island DMV sends registered truck owners across the state of Rhode Island a re-registration form in the mail prior to the registration expiration date so we know if we have to pay vehicle taxes in the communities that we live in. It comes with a red stamp that reads; [Taxes Owed Your Town, Community of City] on the front of the form so you are aware of those vehicle taxes before you spend a week and half standing in line at the registry of motor vehicles office trying to re-register your pick up truck.

Nope. Not anymore. Now, they don’t send you anything in the mail like they have since the dawn of the motor vehicle assembly line back in the early 1900’s. They updated their system. They updated their system so much that most of us are finding out that we owe taxes since the stone age and dinosaurs roamed the earth. Yep. The RI DMV is acquiring tax information from RI Fire Departments and Town Halls that are filed in back room storage boxes being rummaged through by Gremlins, Goblins and Ghouls searching for tax information on all of us that happened long before computers even existed. Our tax information is stored in files, in dusty boxes in back rooms with one dimly lit lightbulb but Gremlins, Goblins and Ghouls can see in the dark so that’s how that works out. I have been in contact with my friends and family members who have been informing me about the nightmares they have been enduring over the past weeks dealing with something that should be relatively easy to do pretty much anywhere; re-registering a pickup truck. They go to the RI DMV or AAA Office with a stamped paid notice on a receipt from their resident town, community and city only to be told; “You still owe taxes from this town, this community and this city.” The normal response is; “Huh? 48| Motorhead Magazine - April 2018

taxes should be a factor in this process. They don’t like all of the phone calls and disgruntled vehicle owners walking into their offices all upset about the new RI DMV System. Now, residents of Rhode Island are going back-and-forth from the DMV and AAA Offices to fire stations and town halls they haven’t dealt with in more than two decades just to re-register their pickup trucks. And now, the RI DMV doesn’t send out re-registration forms at all if you happen to be in their new system and show back taxes owed anywhere. I know people who have been driving around with expired registrations only because they did not receive notification in the mail like they have been since forever and don’t think about it because they happen to lead busy lives.

What? Where is this coming from?” The RI DMV or AAA Office employee informs these individuals that they still owe fire taxes and vehicle taxes as far back as twenty-five years ago or even farther back. No computers. No automated systems. Boxes with files in them stored in back rooms somewhere between The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones universes. That’s amazing! So now, the local fire tax offices are inundated with phone calls and walk-ins because Rhode Island can’t re-register their pick up trucks because they still owe fire tax bills they never even knew they owed in the first place. One gentleman I spoke with said he doesn’t owe any fire taxes or town taxes to anyone and the computer system shows that he does. He can’t re-register his pick up truck and it’s his work vehicle. Much like most of the pick up trucks out there being used as work vehicles. Not now. A lot of them are sitting in driveways and garages right now because the state of RI DMV is on a witch hunt to try and grab as many dollars and cents out of Rhode Island residents as they possibly can by holding their registrations hostage in order to do so. Since when does owing a fire tax have anything to do with vehicle registration anyway? It’s a vehicle tax that precludes us from re-registering our pick up trucks. Not fire taxes. Most of the fire tax offices I have spoken with agree with me and say that fire taxes should not play a role in registering vehicles. Only vehicle

Way to go RI DMV! Drop the ball and walk off the playing field before the game is over and not telling anyone why you are leaving. If stunned and surprised Rhode Islanders is what you were going for, then great job! You could have at least let us know what you were doing and how things are gonna work from now on instead of letting us find out during RI TRUCK MONTH. The busiest and most frustrating month of the year to re-register our vehicles. These trucks are our livelihoods and we need them to earn a paycheck to feed our families and pay our bills every week. But, what do you care? You are so busy rummaging through files in dusty boxes in back rooms somewhere trying to dig up that missing $3.85 in past due fire taxes and town taxes so you can hold our registrations hostage until you get paid. Most fire tax and town tax offices have actually waived those long overdue taxes but your new system doesn’t reflect that does it. Worry about vehicle taxes and keep your hands off of other agency taxes. It appears that you have a hard enough time managing your own jobs without taking on the jobs of everyone else. And send those re-registration forms out to Rhode Islanders, whether they owe back taxes or not, so they are aware of their vehicle situations. Called due process. They lead busy lives and have more important things to worry about than when their registration expires. Do your jobs. Stop passing the buck onto hard working Rhode Islanders.

FACTORY FIVE RACING ED YESSAIAN

Built Not Bought Since 1995

For years I kept saying I would somehow make the trek down to Wareham, Massachusetts to check out the extraordinary operation known as Factory Five Racing. But no matter how hard I tried, something always got in the way of my plans to tour the world’s premiere specialty vehicle manufacturer. Finally, with the help of the Mustangs of Massachusetts Club, I was able to break away from life’s never ending string of mishaps and get out to see the where all the magic happens. A tour of the facility starts in the showroom where about half dozen meticulously completed kits get your mind wandering and your checkbook ready! With an endless array of possible body and drivetrain configurations

choice of kit, including the new 35 Hot Rod truck!!

available, there is quite simply something for pretty much everyone on the planet, with my own personal favorite still being the Type 65 Coupe. And not only does Factory Five sell the kits to complete your dream ride, but they have people there for you every single step of the way, as well as connections to clubs, groups, and experienced enthusiasts that will make sure you’re not alone in getting your wheels to the pavement, regardless of your

I’m not going to lie, the new 35 Hot Rod truck was a blockbuster announcement that immediately grabbed my attention. Based on the 33 Hot Rod Chassis, but extended for a truck bed, the kit includes a full width roll bar and options that allow for multiple engine and suspension configurations. Complete kits address literally every nut and bolt, with owners only needing to provide engine, transmission, rear end, wheels, tires, battery, fuel pump, and paint. As dazzling as the website’s gallery is with photos of the completed build, I’m making it a point this summer to take another trip up to Factory Five racing to see one in person. To schedule your own tour, feel free to contact Factory Five Racing 9 Tow Road, Wareham, MA 02571 info@factoryfive.com 508.291.3443

He met his wife Sherry (of 25 years) at Cuesta College, who just happened to be driving her family’s ‘65 Mustang Coupe. The Coupe was her high school and college car. Based on the Ford Registered Owner Plan, it was purchased in January of 1965 in Los Angeles brand new by her father. In the late 70’s Gene’s father-in-law had an unfortunate

accident and rolled the car. The Mustang was totaled by the insurance company, however rather than junking the Mustang, he decided to have it repaired as best as it could be for the time.” In 2012, Jonathan received the Mustang from his grandmother as a gift. This was to be his first car, and a way of keeping it in the family. The car was just in need of a new paint job, so everyone thought! The car was shown to Eric Beecher at South Beech Rods and Restorations in Goleta, CA Eric offered Gene these options: ”there are two things that I can do, put the car back together and send it back to you to junk, or I can restore

Photos by Georgina Garcia May it”. Turned out the Mustang was that bad due to its previous roll-over accident back in the 70’s. It

was decided that based on the family history of the car, the Mustang was to be restored. So South Beech Rods and Restorations did a complete rotisserie restoration on the Mustang, finished after 2 years. During the complete tear down of the Mustang, they discovered how things were “restored” back in the 70’s. The front right side of the car was shoddily replaced by a different year Mustang. Perhaps the most unique feature of this Mustang was the decision to stay away from any of the original Ford paint colors. The wide rally stripes and pin stripping along with removing all the badges made for a cleaner look. This restoration has a mix of both old and new. The current engine is a 302/331hp by Phoenix Engine Rebuilders. Given that the Mustang was more for street driving, they built the engine accordingly. The transmission was rebuilt (it

12 VOLT NEWS To Be Cool or Not Be Cool??

GEORGE ARAKELIAN, JR.

you drive safely.

Before I talk about the benefits of tinting your vehicles windows, I would like to explain what tint is and how window film works.

Harmful UV rays and heat cause car upholstery to crack and fade. Car tint is sunscreen for your car. Tinting can protect your skin. Harmful UV rays from the sun can cause skin cancer. Tinting your car can block 99% of these damaging rays.

A Custom Car Stereo Center

Tint is created when tinting film is bonded onto a piece of glass. Tinting film is usually made out of a piece of clear polyester film with a very thin and even layer of tinting agents such as dyes and/ or metals deposited onto the film. Once tinting film is applied to a window, the characteristics of how visible light comes into the car changes. Normal auto glass without tint reflects around 5% of visible light (known as VLR%), absorbs another 5% (known as VLA%) and transmits 90% of visible light (known as VLT%) into the car. Depending on the type and quality of tinting film applied to a window these percentages change dramatically. Some tints are more reflective and others absorb more light. So as we approach the summer months there are many reasons to tint your vehicle. Such as staying cool, protecting against health concerns, safety reasons and privacy reasons, as well as preserving your investment in your car. One of the reasons to tint your vehicle is to stay cool. Your car’s interior can be 60 % cooler during those hot summer days with proper tinting. Another reason to tint your vehicle is to contribute to safer driving. Tinting reduces dangerous glare from the sun, snow, and other headlights, helping

Tinting your vehicles windows protects your privacy and contents within your car. What a burglar can’t see, he won’t steal. One last benefit of tinting your windows is in the case of an auto accident, a tinted window can help shattered glass to hold together, protecting the occupants of the car. A common misconception is that window tint is dark and night time driving is impossible when a car is tinted. The truth is that there are films of any darkness that suits your preferences. Tinting film is designed to reduce glare and not impede upon night time driving. So the Question…. To Tint or Not to Tint? It is a personal choice and IS permissible in the State of Rhode Island, if you stay within the legal requirements as defined under Rhode Island General Laws 31-23.3. R.I.G.L. 31-23.3-3 defines the use of non-transparent or sunscreen material or window application on motor vehicles which has a total visible light transmittance of not less than seventy (70%) percent. Windshield Banners are also permissible

under R.I.G.L. 31-23.3-4 indicating that the use of transparent material limited to the uppermost six inches (6”) along the top of the windshield provided the strip does not encroach upon the drive’s direct forward viewing area. As a perfectionist of tinting windows for over 30 years, I have tinted just about every make and model of vehicle, I have also tinted Boats, Tractor Trailers, Vans & Limousines and although the majority of my work is automotive, I have tinted windows on residences as well as commercial buildings. When I am finished with any job, it is very difficult to see that an after market service was performed on your vehicle. I carry the most up-to date colors and shades to match the latest factory tints adding a stylish look to your car. The tint will stay sharp and crisp, with no chipping and peeling guaranteed. In addition to tinting windows, I also offer the services of Paint Protection. Paint Protection is an invisible shield that protects your vehicle’s paint from damaging elements. So this Spring, be prepared for Summer have your Window’s Tinted by A Custom Car Stereo Center, get the Hot Looks while staying Cool! Call for an appointment & Pricing (401) 946-0010

Cruisin’ Tunes

JIM WEICHERDING

What’s going on? What gets you from point A, to point B, without pulling what’s left of your hair out while you are out on a Sunday cruise? Is it the sunny and warm skies? Is it the green trees and green grass? Is it the company that you keep? Or, is it something else? Me? It’s the music playing

on my vehicle stereo that keeps me grounded and keeps the hair on my head. Now, I would imagine many of you reading this article right now must have a favorite sound track, band or music era that makes you happy and feel good every day just by listening to what keeps you moving on. I love the oldies and classic rock music myself but everyone has their own favorites. We are all different when it comes to musical preferences but some of us just love music in general. I’m not talking about those morons that drive through our neighborhoods with noise pounding from their stereo speakers just for the sake of making noise.

CALL 401-965-9012 TO ADVERTISE

I’m talking about real music. The kind that gets you tapping your steering wheel with your fingers and tapping your boot heels on the floorboard of those rides you cherish so much. The songs that remind you of better days, and less stress, without the day-to-day grinds we all deal with today in our lives. The Beach Boys, Supremes, Buddy Holly, Four Tops and Jackie Wilson are some that come to mind for the oldies. Led Zeppelin, Cream, The Yard-

birds, Steppenwolf and Creedence Clearwater Revival are some that come to mind for the classic rock era. All, in all, it’s all pretty good music. Even better when you are Cruisin to, and from, a classic auto show on the weekend or a local cruise night anywhere across New England. Chances are strong that the DJ has just played a whole lotta oldies songs and classic rock hits at the venues you attend surrounded by classic cars and trucks and the people that love them. So, the next time you turn the key in your ignition, don’t be shy about the songs and music that you love to listen too. Crank ‘em up, sit back into your drivers seat and Cruise on down the road. Enjoy yourself. Have some fun! Shine on! We only go around once in this life so be happy and do what makes you feel good. See you soon!

Jamie Kelly’s Mind Blowing Metal Art from Car Parts By XANDER ANTHONY Being the son of Motorhead writer Ed Yessaian provides me with many opportunities to see pretty much anything and everything automotive related. I have seen Drag Racing, Car Shows, Cruise Nights, and pretty much anything else that involves modifying things with wheels, which is awesome, but at the end of the day, I’m still a kid and let’s face it, kids love toys and toy related items. Now I’m not saying that the masterpieces created by Jamie Kelly are toys, but as a huge fan of Spiderman, it was that particular piece of artwork that first caught my eye.

In 2015, after losing his best friend and four legged sidekick, he decided to create tribute to his dog that intertwined with his hobby as a metal artist.

This was his first major project and from there he decided to dabble with online sales of his products in his spare time. Little did he know that his stuff would blow up the internet, with demand that he simply could not keep up with. Shows such as “All Girls Garage”, “Ripley’s Believe it or not”, and “Shameless” all took interest in his creations and sales skyrocketed. On display at World of Wheels, was just a sample of some of the brilliant creations he is accomplished recently including the previously mentions superheroes, the entire cast of sesame Street, all four Ninja Turtles, Optimus Prime, and a selection of both military and sport insignias. Jamie does most of his business through social media and encouraged us to

UNDER THE HOOD SHOW JIM WEICHERDING UNDER THE HOOD SHOW is a very popular Syndicated Car-Talk Radio Show broadcast from South Dakota, USA. This popular automotive radio show first hit the air waves back in 1990. Since then, Under The Hood Show has syndicated nationwide and worldwide with a listening audience and podcast audience in the millions. Their fan base tunes in every week to hear Russ, Shannon and Chris talk car stuff that hits homes and garages everywhere from coast-to-coast and in 179 countries globally on the American Veterans Radio Network. It’s a very impressive radio format and these three individuals know everything there is to know about cars and trucks in all brackets, makes, models and years. Got automotive questions? They have the answers! Under The Hood Show recently reached out to me, due in a strong part, because I was recommended to them by the good folks at Horsepower for an Hour Radio Show broadcasted from Los Angeles, California, also syndicated nationwide. I have been creating Horsepower for an Hour Radio Show Clothing and Merchandise Automotive Artwork and providing them with my Clash of the Classics Coloring Formats for nearly five years with great success. Horsepower Radio Show recommended that Under The Hood Show reach out to me about my Creative Capabilities and Cartooning Talents especially related to Kids and Kids Safety Content. Over the past few weeks Under The Hood Radio Show Partnered with my Buckleupallofus Child Passenger Safety Mascot by featuring Kids Cruisin Safety Coloring Pages, Bucky Balloon Events Photo Slideshow and important links regarding Kids and Family Safety. They also feature a 30 second Buckleupallofus Radio PSA on their radio broadcast each week along with website promotions that reach millions of Kids and Families. Their partnership and ongoing participation is very valuable and can also help prevent serious injuries and even potentially save lives related to traffic and vehicle safety. You will see a lot more activity from Under The Hood Show over the coming months in regards to my Automotive Artwork, Kids Traffic Safety Content, 70| Motorhead Magazine - April 2018
