Car Show Season 2019

JIM WEICHERDING Car Show Season is back again folks! I don’t know how we do it though? We suffer through five long months of wintertime just to prevail and see springtime show up just before we literally lose our minds. I don’t know if it’s entirely something to blame on the weather but we gotta blame something, correct? Personally, I hate winter and everything that comes with it. The only thing that keeps my sanity in check is knowing that someday all of it will go away and the new Car Show Season will once again be starting up and showing up all across the region. Some of these popular venues have more than likely already starting popping up as primer events for when the Car Show Season really kicks into high gear in May. By then, everyone has started their Car Shows and Cruise Nights somewhere in New England and we all love it. I attend nearly two hundred Car Shows and Cruise Nights each and every Car Show Season and have done so for the past twenty years. It’s time to go cruising and meet up with my long lost winter hibernated friends at these Car Shows and Cruise Nights. Hope to see you there! CALL 401-965-9012 TO ADVERTISE

Notorious Nov

Jason Mazzo�a- 2018 Pro ED YESSAIAN

When you come from an unbelievably successful racing family, it’s only a matter of time before you are infected by the contagious rush of adrenaline. You can’t stop it, that feeling that comes immediately after your first trip down the quarter mile. And so it was with a young man named Jason Mazzotta, who just happened to be related to Mud Racing Legend Teddy Mazzotta and multiple time Pro Eliminator Champion Jared Kinson (and his wife Pro-Mod superstar Angela Kinson). Spending most of his life on the soccer field, Jason became a fan of drag racing while watching Jared compete in Junior Dragsters starting 1994, and then moving up the ranks to the 1968 Camaro he currently runs in Pro Eliminator. Teddy and Jared began hinting that Jason should think about finding a car of his own and he eventually became smitten with the 1968 Chevy Nova of Rob Hyatt who frequented

Teddy’s Transmission business. One day while joking about buying the car from Hyatt, the dream became a reality and Hyatt finally let the car go. It was from this point on that Jason Mazzotta would start his career as one of the top drivers in New England. But the Nova didn’t just start in the Winner’s Circle.

The Nova went through a series of changes, as all race cars do, starting with a mild 427ci engine that ran 11.50 in the quarter mile and eventually ending up with a monster 454 that has run a best of 10.03 @ 135.88. The 454, as it sits now, is an impressive piece based on a steel 454ci block stuffed with Manley rods, JE pistons, Comp Cam, Crower lifters, and an Eagle crank. Topping it off is a set of steel rectangular open chamber heads. Comp chromoly rockers, and Edelbrock intake and a Holley APD 1000 carburetor. The engine drinks healthy doses of VP Race Fuel by way of an Aeromotive Fuel system and produces final numbers of over 650 horsepower. Jason says he had no worries when it came to backing up that engine, because after all he had “connections” with one of the best transmission guys around. The nearly indestructible TEDCO Powerglide features 1.80 straight cut gears, a Reid case, and is finished off with an ATI converter and TSR transbrake. A Mark Williams chromoly driveshaft links the “TEDCO glide” to a Moser 12 bolt that spins 4.11 gears and 35 spline axles. Making sure that the car stays firmly on the track required a series of suspension upgrades that included Calvert split mono-leafs with adjustable rear shocks and QA1 fully adjustable front shocks. A Wilwood disc brake set up hides behind sparkling Weld wheels that are wrapped in Hoosier’s all around, delivering an intimidating stance. Inside the cockpit, Mazzotta refreshed everything including new carpets, new dash, and a set of Kirkey seats. The old mild steel roll bar was removed Continued Next Page

and Jared Kinson created one of his masterpieces in the form of a full chromoly cage while working at Dan Page Race Cars. Since its rebirth, the Nova has delivered 4 Championships in just 7 seasons, 4 WALLY’s, and over 30 total wins in multiple classes, at multiple tracks (Most recently the 2018 Pro Eliminator Championship). Mazzotta says his biggest wins were “KING OF THE TRACK” in 2013 and 2015 and the Hot Rod Reunion in 2014. He extends his sincerest gratitude to the following for their undying support… Mom (Deanna) Dad (The Great Ted) His brother Justin Brother and sister in law Jared and Angela Kinson His Niece Kayla who will heading into Junior Dragsters before you know it!!

MODIFYING THE 2009 ZO6 CORVETTE MIKE GALLO So the time has come and the speed bug seems to have bitten me once again. Every car I have had for most of my adult life I have modified to make faster and have raced. Except for my 2009 ZO6 CORVETTE. I have owned this car for about 3 years and haven’t even put it on the dyno yet, although I have done a few small exterior upgrades and interior ones. The motor is 100% totally stock from intake to oil pan. With 505hp stock these cars are very light and extremely fast. But since when is stock good enough for us? So what I am going to be doing is sharing with you my small journey with modifying my car but keeping it totally streetable… by streetable I mean having the great characteristics it has currently with its drivability and comfort. I might add a slightly bigger camshaft as long as the car still drives excellent. The days of having a giant camshaft and the poor street manners that come along with it are over for me as I enjoy driving my car way too much to screw that up. My car still has all of the factory exhaust that came with the car brand new in 2009 which includes the catalytic converters and stock manifolds and also the stock mufflers. The first thing I will be doing is getting some baseline dyno numbers to have a record as to what works and what doesn’t. I will be doing all the work with a few of my lifelong Motorhead friends.

I’m thinking with starting off with bolt ons and going from there. I will share the prices I pay for parts along with the level of difficulty it takes to install said parts. And most of all, if there is a seat of the pants difference along with dyno numbers for before and after. So in the next few months we will embark on my journey for more power. One thing I know will happen for sure is there will be a lightening in my wallet...lol. Get your popcorn and drinks ready for the modifications. See you soon guys and gals.

FACTS

THE COLOR OF TIRES Joseph Binney had founded the Peekskill Chemical Company in 1864 and specialized in producing black and red colors and paints. The red he created was used on barns all across the American countryside and was made with the same red iron oxide that the cavemen had used to make their red paint. The Peekskill chemists succeeded in creating a darker color for the tire manufacturer. More importantly, they discovered that by adding carbon black as an ingredient to the rubber they not only got a darker tire, but one that lasted four to five times longer than white ones! And from there you know how this story ends, except for one little detail. The Peekskill Chemical Company later became known as Binney & Smith, the makers of Crayola Crayons!

Driving To Endanger

JIM WEICHERDING

Spring is here and so is the nicer weather. This also means more people are driving on the roadways and the nicer weather means a lot more risks and distractions. The biggest distraction: Cell Phones. You may think it is harmless to be using your cell phone while driving your vehicle but you are sadly mistaken. Unfortunately, the consequences are not just yours to burden if something horrible occurs due to driving while using your cell phone. Those consequences way too often become a part of somebody else’s life and not just your own. I have witnessed multiple oncoming vehicles cross center lines in the road while the driver was texting or reading a cell phone. I have witnessed vehicles sway into lanes beside them almost hitting other vehicles while the driver was texting or reading a cell phone. I have also witnessed a vehicle rear ended by another vehicle

while the driver was texting or reading a cell phone. Wanna kill yourself, or worse somebody else? Text while driving. Drivers that do this are a virus. They are endangering the lives of everyone around them. You may as well be drunk or impaired while driving too if that’s the mentality you have as a driver today. You are toxic. You risk the lives of everyone on the roadway around you. Fines? Nope. Lock you up is more like it. Nothing is so important that you need to put individuals and families in harms way because you are clueless to the consequences of texting while driving. Put your cell phones away and just drive. Period! The SAFE And The SERIOUS is an Award-Winning Traffic Safety Campaign that originated in the community of Burrillville, Rhode Island and is being utilized as a strong visual campaign across the USA in communities reminding drivers not to Text & Drive. Display banners and posters are permanently placed inside high schools, high school parking lot exits, gas stations, car washes, retail stores, plazas and malls in an effort to curb this dangerous hazard on our streets, roadways and highways with high impact graphics and simple messages about safe driving. Behind the wheel? “DRIVE NOW...TEXT LATER!” CALL 401-965-9012 TO ADVERTISE

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.

BEWARE THE RATS

about them that sets them apart from the rest. These Rat Rod builders are purely automotive build artists as far as I’m concerned. Takes a lot of imagination to visualize a vehicle in a completely new light, or darkness, depending on how you look at things. Their creative Rat Rod build perspectives are to be admired on all levels. I live, breathe and sleep classic cars and trucks. But these Rat Rods are starting to take ahold on me too. I’m hoping this Rat Rod trend keeps building a strong fan base and emerges as something we can all enjoy and admire across the USA and Globally. I know, that as an automotive artist, I love illustrating them. Rat Rod artwork opens a lot of creative avenues with absolutely no creative restrictions whatsoever. Any automotive artist or illustrator should embrace this Rat Rod trending as I am doing right now myself.

JIM WEICHERDING It is becoming very apparent to me that Rat Rods are an emerging Automotive Enthusiasts new passion not only here in New England but also nationwide. Rat Rods are showing up at Classic Car and Truck Shows much more frequently over the past couple of years than ever before. I’m sure that we will be seeing this Rat Rod trend continue to grow and we will also be seeing more and more of them attending car shows and cruise nights on a regular basis. I also envision the growth of Rat Rods on a grander scale with events starting to just showcase these very cool vehicles on their own automotive enthusiast merit. Rat Rod Clubs will keep expanding and Rat Rods will find their own automotive core audience practically everywhere across the region, nationwide and worldwide over the coming years. I am starting to witness this growing Rat Rod trend and I’m all for it myself. Each one of these Rat Rods has a uniqueness

So, in passing, open your eyes and Beware The Rats. Soon, these Rat Rods are gonna be everywhere!

A Trip Down MIKE GALLO So you’re back again for one of my trips down memory lane? Well have a seat and let’s get going. The car that I’ve always had a secret love for is this 1989 Pontiac Turbo Trans Am. Rated at 245 horsepower which of course is very underrated, these cars were incredibly fast right off the dealer’s floor. With only 1555 of these units built they are very rare right now. You could have any color combination you wanted as long as it was white exterior with a camel interior. This car has a turbocharged V6 that was based off the Buick GNX motor with a different cylinder head and an AI research T3 turbo charger capable of

16.5 PSI boost. This car had a top speed of 162 miles an hour that was recorded by Motor Trend back in the day with a radar gun. These top speeds we’re attributed to and helped by Eagle’s Goodyear ZR50 Gatorback radials. The car had a standard issue rear axle gearing of 3.27:1 with posi traction. The cars all came with a gold mesh wheel that looked really good with the white paint. A friend of mine from high school received one of these cars as a graduation present in 1989 and I was in awe of it. Year’s later I’m still in awe over them. A good friend of mine has one and a neighbor has another one tucked away in a garage that never comes out, unfortunately. Back to the car. With a 4.6 second zero to 60 mph and high 13 second quarter mile they were a fun car to drive. And in the last few years these cars have gone up in value. So if your thinking of getting one I suggest you get moving. I hope to own one of these some day. I never had the pleasure of seeing any of these cars street race but I’m sure they did good back when they were new. Well I hope this sparked some old memories for you. Until the next trip down memory lane motorheads….keep the wheels turning and motors revving. Peace out!! CALL 401-965-9012 TO ADVERTISE

Passion! By JED GREEKE Passion. It’s the way Paintworks Unlimited operates, it’s the reason the crew makes sure every detail you want is correct. Passion is how the reputation of Paintworks has been built over the last 20 years! For some their automotive passion starts much later on in life after they get their license and feel the freedom that comes with it. For some it’s at a young age when they visit a track for their first time. For others it’s purely visual, the first time they see an American muscle car, the first time they saw a lowered tuner or an exotic on a poster in their bedroom. For others it starts much earlier, Sean, the owner of Paintworks was brought home from the hospital in the back of his parents 72 Buick GS 455. That was all it took, that sound, that muscle that ride, he was hooked. Sean still owns that exact GS and drives it regularly, in the pictures you can see him peeking in

the trunk at the age of 2. Rumor has it; he was told there was a Stage 1 kit in there, lol. Sean has a varied collection which includes his 72 GS, 66 GS convertible, 91 Toyota Tacoma with a Buick 300, 60 Buick and Gremlin X! Stop by one of our cruises (Thursday nights) or our 20th celebration open house June 8th (more details in next month’s article) to see our passion first hand.

THE DEMON DOLLY M-H RACING’S SOLUTION TO DEMON CRATE MOBILITY

By XANDER YESSAIAN In the May 2017 issue of Motorhead Magazine your little buddy Xander brought you a sneak peek at the soon to be released SRT Dodge Demon that simply blew the minds of the Muscle Car faithful by offering 840hp and an unbelievable 770ft/lbs of ground-pounding torque. This level of firepower was good for an elapsed time of 9.65 @ over 140mph right off the showroom floor and the NHRA immediately BANNED the Demon from competition, stating that additional safety equipment and driver training was needed before the Demon could compete in NHRA sanctioned events. Owners of the Demon, usually had no problem bringing things up to par however, as the car was purpose built to dominate the drag strip. Dodge made their intentions further evident by the fact that owners could order, straight from the factory, a collection of track necessities in a container known as the DEMON CRATE. Flipping open the lid of your DEMON CRATE reveals a collection of tools and performance parts to make the most of your SRT DEMON. The list includes… • a hydraulic floor jack with carrying bag

with high-octane engine calibration • replacement switch module with high-octane button • conical performance air filter • passenger mirror block-off plate

• a cordless impact wrench with charger

• front-runner drag wheels

• a torque wrench

With the DEMON CRATE components, DEMON owners could drive to the track, change out a few parts and run high nine second times all day long, then swap back to street trim and drive it off to a car show or cruise night for the remainder of the evening. But there was always the concern of transporting the DEMON CRATE, which was fairly large and somewhat awkward to move around. Which is why the folks at M-H Racing decided to invent a device that would make it far more convenient to

• a tire-pressure gauge • a fender cover • a tool bag • a foam case that fits into the trunk and securely holds the front runners • a performance powertrain control module

hit the drag strip with your SRT DEMON; they call it the DEMON DOLLY. The DEMON DOLLY is a simple but effective solution consisting of a durable powdercoated frame and four severe duty swivel casters. It is made in the USA and is guaranteed for life. Ordering a DEMON DOLLY couldn’t be easier, either checkout their website at www. Maxantindustries.com or Give Jake and Bill a call at 978-772-BEES.

By RICHARD FLEISCHER The ’68 TR-250 was my first ‘toy car’. By that I mean extra. Though I’ve enjoyed sports cars all my life, they were always my primary drivers. Coming to Rhode Island in 1968 and eventually graduating from URI, I needed something more reliable than my mom’s old Biscayne, which I had brought with me from New York. The first ‘sporty’ car I bought was from Bob Russo. Actually, it was two cars, but Bobby had managed to sew them together to make one good one. That led to a succession of 510s and Celicas. Next up was a 1970 911T. We got our money’s worth out of that running up a quarter

of a million miles with non-stop trips to Texas and the legendary (in my mind) trip back from DC; me having pneumonia and my wife, Joyce, driving it back with a completely blown clutch. Ultimately,

rust won over wax which led to a variety of Z cars. By 1986, business was looking good and I felt I could finally afford that extra car. I had fallen hard in the early ‘70s for a TR6, or the owner… I can’t really recall which. Pre-internet, it was classified ads and used car magazines. I discovered a TR-250 for sale in the Boston Globe. I really didn’t have any idea what it was, and after a brief discussion on the phone, the seller said, though he lived in Boston, he commuted daily to a construction company about a mile from my house in Edgewood. He brought it over the next day. I did a quick trip around the block, watched the pavement pass under my feet through the large holes in the floor and basically said, “You’ve got a deal”. We picked it up the following weekend in Boston at night time. The headlights didn’t work, which of course I hadn’t noticed in the daylight.

down route 95, the adventure began. After thirty plus years of owning the car and maybe 100,000 miles, it’s like an old shoe. Few things are more comfortable. In the beginning, pre-cell phone, we always travelled with a bottle of wine and two glasses in the boot. Every breakdown was a picnic. As electronics was my hobby, Lucas electrics never bothered me but the body was in rough shape and I often needed help with the mechanicals. The car was originally blue according to the numbers but it was a deep burgundy by the time I got it. I had it bead blasted and painted. A number of years later, an admirer wanting a closer look plowed into the rear. The insurance company tried to total it but by then it was a car I wanted to keep. Because I had to put in additional funds to cover what the insurance company didn’t, I wanted to change the look, hence the black paint job. I’m not much for car shows as I like to drive. After years of just making it home, I hooked up with John Conti at Conti’s Auto Service & Motorsports in Cranston. My wife and I love the car and felt it was time to invest in both bullet proof reliability and performance, as breaking down in the middle of nowhere no longer had the same cache like it did 30 years ago. These days the car is still driven regularly. It comes off the road with the first salting and goes back on after the next heavy rain. It goes to work. It goes on casual runs. For the last few years, it tangles regularly with a group of other old sports cars, sometimes on hour long jaunts in the county and annually, a 150-200 mile rally throughout RI, Mass and parts of Ct. With John Conti’s touch, the TR stands up well to almost everything but a small block TVR, which kind of pisses me off, but I’ll talk with the Conti team later on this year about that.

The TR-250 was only produced for one year, 1968. It was a transition model between the TR-4 and the TR-6, the body was similar to the TR-4 but the drive train is almost identical to the TR-6. Triumph TR-250 was produced in the U.K. by the Standard Triumph Motor Company.

SE BIKES 29” BIG RIPPER By MIKE GALLO

First off, I know this is a car magazine, not a bike magazine. But I had to share this with you. I’m sure some of you - if not a lot of you - grew up riding BMX bikes as kids. For me, bikes were my life when I was younger. I was constantly on my BMX bike or my freestyle bike from sun up to sun

down and could not get enough of it. I also rode for a BMX freestyle team back in the day named Ocean State BMX. As the years went on and I got older and a lot bigger, I no longer fit on regular 20 inch bikes. I had a few mountain bikes here and there but it wasn’t the same. But as of recently I found that SE bikes made a 29 inch BMX bike for us older guys. I was so excited that I bought one. Now let me tell you something, I’m 6 ft 3 and this bike fits me very well. I have the seat a little ways up and my feet barely touch the ground and there is a ton of room on this bike. It’s basically a giant BMX bike of the past. Now, these bikes aren’t that cheap - I paid $550 and put another $500 into it to get it the way I liked it visually. The reason I bought the bike was to get some extra exercise besides the gym and also to go on bike rides with my son.

This past Sunday me and my son went out for a cruise on the bike path and we had a blast. Me especially. It felt great to be out on a nice day with my son Antonio beside me trying to keep up with his old man. I still got it...or at least in my mind I do. Lol The bike is pretty light and handles well and its pretty comfortable. And it looks great.

If you’re looking for a bike try this one out or one of the other SE BIKES. They have a few different 29 inch models to choose from ranging from $550 up to around $1000. I’m gonna get some use out of this thing this year one way or the other. Well, hopefully you enjoyed my insight and fun. I’ll see ya next month.

The Koenigsegg

MIKE GALLO

Okay first off, any of you have 3 million dollars laying around that I can borrow? Well I’ll take that as a no. Anyway let’s talk about the new car from Koenigsegg named the JESKO. I’m sure you already know this is considered a hypercar. With a claimed top speed of over 300 miles per hour and a reported 1600 horsepower this car is absolutely stunning. This car succeeds the Koenigsegg Agera. This new car was built by the founder, Christian von Koenigsegg, and is a tribute and named after his father. The car’s current configuration has a 9-speed transmission with 7 clutches... is that mind bending or what? This gorgeous car was unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. They are only building 125 of these cars and as of right now they have all been sold. Some will be allocated to dealerships so if you do have the $3 million hanging around you still might be able to get one. The JESKO is one of Koenigsegg’s highest volume cars they ever produced. And I’m sure it would be unbelievable to see one of these cars in person or to take a ride in it. The build quality on these cars is absolutely breathtaking. These cars are like a finely crafted machine and no expense was spared when it came to performane, speed and, of course, functionality - and let’s not forget safety. The pictures in this article do the car no justice if you get a chance take a look on YouTube or on the good old internet and see what this car actually looks like. I for one know that this car is a tad bit out of my price range but none the less I can always dream.

BLUE MERCURY CARS IN hot rodding along the streets of San Francisco in the ’61 Galaxie Starliner which fueled my passion towards these fine Fords. My first car (before I had a license) was a 1967 Fairlane.” Found in Aug 1998 in Redwood City, CA, the ’66 Comet Cyclone GT was a rolling chassis theft recovery vehicle missing the engine, transmission, and interior parts. The original GT 9” rear-end was still there which was Tom’s initial interest. Tom and his friend, London Feibusch, determined that this Comet Cyclone deserved to be put on the road. Tom explains “I still remember London saying ‘If you don’t buy it, I will.’ So, this became my first Mercury.” Tom wanted a slightly modified stock look. Along with the rear end, factory options include the fiberglass hood and tach. London, who sadly passed away in Feb 2018, completed the machine work on the 390 4V now found under the hood. A 68 Mustang GT block was utilized along with most of its internal engine parts from a Mach 1. The color is a 1967 Fairlane option. “This is a solid driving car, just point and shoot. It has a very neutral feeling.” Tom certainly enjoys driving his award-winning Comet Cyclone GT. John Foust, of Lompoc, CA states “We purchased this Cat in June of 2018 to be a project car for our son, Johnny. (Note: Johnny’s 16th birthday was celebrated in March of 2019). My wife, Tracy, was the one to locate the Cougar and is supportive of our project. While in high school, my dad ran a garage, and I spent two years helping-out working on the cars. I also owned a 1965 Ford Fairlane Coupe. Our son, Johnny, has been a ‘car guy’ since he was little. He wanted 1966 Mercury Comet Cyclone GT By ROB MAY a project car that he could work on and put his own stamp on.

EVALUATING THE TRUE CONDITION OF YOUR VEHICLE By BILL PRATT One of the most frequent conversations we have with customers concerns the condition of their truck or Jeep and it typically happens in the context of how much labor is required to install a lift kit. That’s just one reason to evaluate condition but the need to accurately assess condition covers many situations beyond installation time. We need to understand the true value of our vehicle when we are deciding what to invest in it or determining fair market value for selling or trade-in purposes. Here is a way to think about evaluating the true condition of your vehicle. INSTALLING AFTERMARKET PARTS When we are discussing lift kits with customers, the time to install is always a

In general, this concept applies to any part that will need to attach to your vehicle. Is the mounting surface clean, solid, and factory straight? ASSESSING VEHICLE VALUE There are multiple ways to assess value but the most common method is to compare your vehicle against a general set of condition categories. The example below is my personal favorite for appraising vehicle value. It’s part of the Edmunds used car appraisal tool online. OUTSTANDING - Exceptional mechanical, exterior and interior condition; requires no reconditioning. (Think of this as the Certified Pre-Owned class of vehicles on a new-car dealer lot.) CLEAN - Some normal wear but no major mechanical or cosmetic problems; may require limited reconditioning. (This represents a very carefully maintained, well-treated personal vehicle) AVERAGE - May have a few mechanical and/or cosmetic problems and may require a considerable amount of reconditioning (Most vehicles belong in this category. They don’t get regular detailing or preventive maintenance. Their owners view them as transportation tools.)

significant factor. Lift manufacturers provide installation time estimates but those estimates typically are based on new or extremely clean used vehicles. In other words, they represent optimal conditions. When we advise a customer that their truck may take longer, especially if it’s older, due to frozen bolts or road wear. Invariably, the customer will tell us how clean their truck is, that it has no rust, etc. But it’s not just about rust. It’s about whether a bolt will turn without needing to apply heat or whether the surrounding components are worn. Sometimes we end up having to cut parts off and that means additional parts and labor expense. These are some of the reasons why we are careful to note that our estimates are never not-to-exceed in nature. We also typically can tell how a job is going to go within the first 30 minutes. At that point, if it looks like the vehicle is going to be fighting us all the way, we’ll call the customer and make sure it’s OK to proceed and that they are forewarned the original estimate is unlikely to hold. What about other parts? One frequent type of add-on is fender flares that are being purchased to hide wheel well rust. In these cases, we need to closely examine the wheel opening lip to make sure it’s solid enough to install a flare. If the rust has extended up the side of the vehicle, we need to make sure there’s enough clean metal to create a good seal between the body and the flare. Often, the customer has not measured how high the rust goes or tapped on the wheel lip to see how solid it remains.

ROUGH - Several mechanical and/or cosmetic problems requiring significant repairs. (There’s a good chance that a used car dealer will take a truck that should be in this category and bump it up to appear average by using a bedliner or fender flares to hide rust, so look carefully and deeply at anything that might really belong here. Pay close attention to parts that appear newer than the vehicle itself and try to see what might be behind them.) DAMAGED - Major mechanical and/or body damage that may render it in non-safe running condition. As owners, we all have the tendency to rate our vehicles one category higher than they really deserve, so look closely and critically before deciding to refresh, sell, or trade-in your vehicle. Having an accurate understanding of its value will lead to better decisions and outcomes and will help explain why an aftermarket shop such as ours may hedge a bit on estimating install times, especially if you don’t have the vehicle in question with you at the shop. That happens much more frequently than one might expect. Bill Pratt is the Owner & General Manager of Rock ‘n Road Outfitters.

Etch keeps glancing back into his rear view mirror and then into his side view mirrors and sees absolutely nothing behind him that would lead him to think that he is still being pursued by law enforcement or any other federal agency for that matter. “Where in the hell is everybody? Why aren’t they still chasing after me? They all give up? Headed back to that Dunkin Donuts for more power circles, coffee and hot chocolates? This makes no sense to me.” Etch keeps cruising in his muscle car GTO and keeps his speed limit about five to ten miles above the posted speed limit. “So, what in the hell am I doing now? Just above the posted speed limit when half the state was after my ass a little while ago? I’m just as bad as they are right now. Not like nobody is going to notice an illegal 1969 Pontiac GTO traveling down this freeway all of a sudden. It’s all over the news!” Etch knows something is

not right with this scenario and pulls over to the side of the highway. “No traffic in either direction. Nothing flying over my head. And nothing positioned on either side of me.” Etch proceeds onto the highway and gradually begins to push the GTO harder and harder as if acting in desperation. The Pontiac GTO is now redlined with nothing but open highway in front of it. Etch sees an exit ramp sign reading exit next two miles. He plans on taking that exit and removing himself from his current situation and hopefully try and make his way back home or to some place he can access sanctuary from the law. The exit ramp sign is now within eye sight and Etch knows that he needs to find sanctuary somewhere out of view from pretty much anyone that knows the difference between a new car or a classic muscle car cruising down the highway or any roadway for that matter. Taking the exit

he sees nobody as he looks down the open highway and nobody at the end of the exit ramp leading to a backroad in a rural country community about fifty miles from his own home and garages. “What in the hell is going on?” Etch crawls his GTO onto the backroad and slowly starts heading towards his own community about an hour, to an hour and half away, if he continues to drive the posted speed limits. The backroad is void of any other vehicle. It’s as if Etch and his wanted GTO are the only person and vehicle left on the planet. But, Etch knows that is far from the case. Even though it feels that way.

cruising in your very own convertible or drop top hot rod back in the day or may even own one of them today and still enjoy mild spring and summer days and nights of cruising with your tops down.

I travel the streets, roads and highways every single day across the region and I am already seeing vehicles cruising by with their tops down. It’s officially Drop Top Season here in New England. Isn’t a wonderful thing? People cruising down our roadways driving and riding in their convertibles with the wind blowing through their hair. Big smiles on their faces from ear to ear while the oldies are playing on their radios making their way from one destination to another without skipping a beat. I love rag tops. I’ve owned quite a few of them in my early years and they were a lot of fun to drive and everyone riding with me always enjoyed the view.

Tyler Timmons’ Blue ’68 Mercury Montego By ROB MAY Our Blue Mercury theme continues in Hagerstown, Maryland with 18-yearold Tyler Timmons’s Blue 1968 Mercury Montego story (photos by Tyler Timmons). “It was February of 2018, when I saw the car on Facebook marketplace. My father talked me into going to look. When the car started up and backed out of the garage, I knew I needed it. It was in great condition, other than a scrape along the side and the driver’s front fender being rotted out in front of the car door. I have always liked Ford and Mercury.” The interior was cleaned, engine painted, carpet updated, a set of Cragar SS’s added, and an aluminum 4-barrel intake installed. As of December 2018, the engine has been out. “So far, other than all the gaskets, the main improvements are a new timing

chain, a set of 289 heads I’ve ported and put new valves in, a new stock cam, and new pistons. I’m still tossing around the idea of daily driving a dual quad car over a single 4-barrel along with headers.” It’s a 302 2-barrel C4 car. “I learned a lot about engines on my Fairlane owned previously. My father helped me a bunch, as he is incredibly knowledgeable. My dad has been a Ford guy all his life, and he had the same color blue on a 1968 Cyclone. This Montego is going to be my daily driver. Many people notice the Transformers Decepticons logo I added to the hood.” CALL 401-965-9012 TO ADVERTISE

carried. Therefore we need different switches and sensors to protect them from theft and vandalism. Because work trucks have different doors, lids, covers, windows, etc. there are many different security solutions. Some work vans have only their outside doors and windows. While other trucks have an array of tool boxes, cabinets, covered trays and drawers exposed to the outside. As a result we use different switches and sensors to protect these different areas. In this way we recommend solutions for each of your vulnerable areas. View the many car & truck security alarm accessories here for a look at an array of vehicle security options. • Cameras: Today we have dash cam systems which record driving activity and traffic incidents. However not only do they protect the car and driver but they also record vandalism and theft activity. For example we can mount cameras inward to record what happens within the vehicle. As a result if the truck is struck in a break-in attempt, the camera automatically turns on and records. • Safety Features: If your truck isn’t equipped with it we offer backup cameras, blind spot mon-

“LIFE’S A DRAG”

By JIM WEICHERDING

Yup, it is Drag Racing Season here in New England. There are plenty of drag racing enthusiasts and drag car owners and teams out there that are once again going to be able to show the rest of the regions drag racers and enthusiasts who the top dogs are in their drag racing classes.

doing something that they love to do.

I love nostalgia drag racing myself. I cannot get enough of drag racing and the thrill of it all at area dragways all season long. Just being around all of these great people having a great time

The drag car owners, drivers, teams, family members and friends surrounded by thousands of drag racing enthusiasts again and again, week after week, month after month, until the fall arrives. But it’s way too early to be thinking about fall right now. The drag racing season has only just begun. It’s true about what they say too, “If You Build It, They Will Come.” That’s the truth. Build a drag car or drag truck and see who comes to watch it drag race. Literally, thousands of drag racing fans with come to watch you drag race whatever it is you built. So, good luck. Stay safe but most of all, have a great drag racing season. My only real drag racing driver safety tip; “Stay In Your Own Lane & Off The Wall!”
