CHRISTMAS PAST JIM WEICHERDING I often remember those Christmas mornings when I was a little kid and being excited about all of the wrapped presents under the Christmas Tree with my name on the tags from Santa during the Holiday Season. I was a kid. I loved cars and trucks. I always hoped Santa would bring me more cars and trucks for Christmas. I tried to be a good kid, especially around the Holiday Season knowing Santa was watching me to make sure I was good, not bad. Or, at least, that’s what my parents told me. I’m always on Santa’s radar I guess. I guess I am still on his radar. I’m just a big kid anyway. I still love cars and trucks. That’s probably why I write and create artwork for Motorhead Magazine. Only been six years at this but it never gets old for me. I love everything automotive. I’ve owned classic muscle cars and big trucks my entire life. I owned them as a kid, but on a much smaller scale, with Hot Wheels and Matchbox being the most popular name brands for toy cars and trucks. When I was able to drive, I put aside my car and truck toys, models and die cast vehicles and replaced them with real classic cars and big trucks. On Christmas Day, when I was sixteen years old, my parents had just one small gift under our Christmas Tree and I was a little upset because everybody else had numerous gifts under the tree. After eating our traditional Christmas morning breakfast we all sat around in a circle while my mom passed out the gifts to me and my sisters. She waited until the very last gift under the tree that morning. It was mine. Everybody watched my facial expression when she handed me my gift. I opened the small wrapped box and found wrapping paper surrounding a set of keys. I looked at my parents thinking they just gave me my own set of house keys. I was wrong. My dad took me to the back door and pointed at a shiny bright orange 1969

Chevy Camaro with black racing stripes and said “Merry Christmas”. I could not erase the smile from my face for a week. Christmas often brings back to that morning and I think about the days gone past when we were a lot younger than we are now. Every classic car and truck show I attend brings me back to that Christmas morning too. That Christmas day I received one of the best gifts I ever received from Santa and its one hard to forget. I hope everyone gets exactly what they want for Christmas this year and I hope you spend it with your family and friends. Maybe you might get lucky like me and Santa brings you a classic muscle car too. Not everyone gets this kind of gift for Christmas but I sure am glad that I did. It changed my life. Merry Christmas from all of us here at Motorhead Magazine and hope your Holidays are Safe and Happy.

ROYAL MERCURY

ROB MAY Tom Rauch, from Santa Barbara, CA, owns this Canadian made 1956 Monarch Lucerne restored to factory specs color. Originally this Royal Mercury was built in Oakville, Ontario Canada by Ford Canada. The Lucerne was bought new by his father at Maclin Motors in Calgary Canada. Tom retains all of the original purchase paper work. Thanks to Georgina Garcia May Photography for these modern photos. Rauch’s parents brought the car to California in

12| Motorhead Magazine - December 2017

1958. The car was their daily driver until 1970. A repaint was done on the car in the mid 70’s. Then the car wasn’t driven often. Tom’s father became ill, so he ensured the car back to driving condition for his dad around 2006. Sadly, Tom’s father passed away in 2014. The car sat and in 2015, Tom brought the Lucerne to a coworker for some work. Initially, the intention was only to refresh the engine and transmission. As the work continued, many issues were found on the Monarch. Each time, Tom received a call to approve the work. One day, a call stated the car was just a few bolts away of taking the body off the frame, so the frame off restoration began. The car was completely restored to stock condition including the original 312 V8 engine with 3 speed auto transmission. Only modifications were to make it electronic ignition and covert to an alternator

instead of the generator. The restoration took a long time, longer than Tom hoped, and his Mom passed away in February 2017 before the car was finished in July. This Royal Mercury cruises at 70 mph without any issues. This beauty has won best in class in all 3 shows entered including the Mercury class at the Muscle Mutts and Meows Santa Maria show hosted by Mercury Stray Cats Central CA.

www.jimsfirearmrepairandsales.com Supermarket Jay Pjojian’s Immaculate SVT COBRA Ed Yessaian

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.

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.

Outlaw GTO accelerates away from the diner and pursuing police vehicles. The police eyeball the escaping GTO but one blink of an eye later, the jet black, Pontiac muscle car, is out of sight. It can still be heard miles away traveling at a high rate of speed but seeing it is no longer in play. The police officers attempt to give pursuit, but by the time they reach open road, the high performance Pontiac is long gone from sight and sound. They are told by dispatch to break off a high pursuit due to high rates of speed on the open road and the increased probability of involving unsuspecting drivers and passengers traveling down this roadway that may initiate a vehicle crash is now a consideration that needs to be addressed. The police officers reluctantly stop pursuing the Outlaw GTO. Etch realizes that he is no longer being pursued and decides to back down his beast of a muscle car and attempts to travel at the posted speed limits. He doesn’t want anyone else hurt either and knows the consequences resulting in being involved in a high speed vehicle crash. He has lived through it many times

before. The one that still haunts him the most is the high speed chase involving the love of his life being shot in the back by a pursuing deputy sheriff on a rampage trying to catch Outlaw behind the wheel of a Chevy Camaro long before he built the OUTLAW GTO. The Camaro slammed into a guard rail cutting the vehicle in half sending Etch into a wooded area along the side of the road, while she laid dead in the middle of the road surrounded by automotive body parts and drive train parts scattered a half mile wide in all directions. His face barely able to rise above a pool of falling rain and his own blood. He watched as more police cruisers arrived followed by an ambulance and shortly after that, the state coroner vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Police officers searched the surrounding area looking for Etch while the deputy sheriff yelled out, “That son-of-bitch has to be out there somewhere... Dead I hope!” The police searched for hours but could not find Etch laying in the pool of rain water and blood. The rain fell harder, and harder. They walked past Etch plenty of times but

he never moved and never made a sound. He just stared at her body strewn on the roadway surrounded by flashing lights and spotlights. The rain just kept coming down around him. The scene was chaotic and hard to envision but it was happening just the same. The flashing lights slowly fade away. The vehicles start leaving the scene. He watches them drape a white sheet over her lifeless body. They pick her up on a stretcher and carry her to the back of the state coroner vehicle. That vehicle drives away moments later. It is now pitch black. No lights. No vehicles. No her. All gone. Leaving him alone. Etch struggles in severe pain and rolls over onto his back. He immediately passes out face up in the pool of rain water and his own blood. The rain stops. His heart doesn’t.

END OF THE

ROB MAY Disco may have been a popular sound on the radio, but July 1979 marked the demise for the genre. That year also saw the end of the 5th generation Mercury Cougar body style (1977-1979). Twenty-three year old Austin Branca from Dunnellon, FL owns a fine example of the last of the 1970’s decade Mercury Cougar cars. Working for Nick Nicholas Ford as a Service Writer, he has been a Gear Head and Musclecar guy since he was 12, after seeing his first 67 Ford Galaxie 500. As a big fan of all pre1980 models with 1967 a personal favorite, this 1979 (last of the big 20| Motorhead Magazine - December 2017

before moving on to the Fox based cats. Few examples of these luxurious Mercury Cougar remain; however, they are always treasured at car shows.

Upon initially buying this Cougar, there were only 62,000 miles on the 351W/FMX drivetrain. For 1979, the 302 V8 was standard with the 351W optional as the 400 was no longer available. Modifications he made include porting and polishing the factory heads adding Comp springs, Comp xtreme energy cam, Weiand stealth high rise intake with Holley 650 double pumper, Flowmaster series 10 mufflers, and a 9in rear with 3.55 trac lok. For a smog era car, this cat moves pretty good! The color seems to changes shades in varying light. That is one of Austin’s favorite thing about his Cougar – it reflects almost Turquoise to a bright Ocean Blue. Originally with a white top, the black top was on the car when Austin found it. 1979 was the finale of this popular chassis

DODGE RAM SRT-10

With the heart of a Viper, it was simply untouchable XANDER YESSAIAN

Every now and then I catch my Dad, Motorhead writer Ed Yessaian, looking on-line at different vehicles that don’t normally seem to be his forte. Many of you know him as the long time Mustang guru of Motorhead Magazine, but occasionally he does throw a little love and attention towards other makes and models. Most recently, as we spent a relaxing evening at home, I caught him searching

the internet for something that seemed completely out of his realm, the Dodge Ram SRT-10 pickup truck. As Motorhead Magazine’s resident Mopar guy, I was glad to see my Dad showing some interest in the brand but I had

to ask exactly what was so great about a 14 year old pickup truck. His reply and knowledge of the SRT-10 actually impressed me so much that I decided to conduct a little more research of my own and ended up adding the SRT-10 to the list of vehicles I will someday possess. The truck was produced in 2004-06 and in 2004


quite innovative back then. When the truck needed to come to a screeching halt, front and rear disk brakes from the Ram Heavy Duty were more than up to the chore, with 15 inch front rotors and 14 inch rear rotors. Hiding the brakes is one of the nicest sets of wheels to ever dress a pickup truck. With styling cues borrowed from the production Viper wheels, the SRT-10 wore a 22 inch version with 305/40R/22 Pirelli rubber wrapped around them. A model specific hood and rear tonneau cover with spoiler finished the aggressive look and made sure that no one would mistake this for your everyday Dodge Ram pickup. I have to admit that seeing my father scanning the classifieds for an SRT-10 pickup really got me excited, knowing that there’s a pretty good chance in a few years he could be pulling my junior dragster up to New England Dragway in one of these bad boys. You heard it here first- Xander Y- OUT!! won the prestigious honor of being the fastest production truck ever, with a top speed of 154.58mph, which was recorded by the Guinness Book of World Records. This was accomplished using the 8.3 liter V-10 engine derived from the 2nd generation Dodge Viper and the Tremec T56 manual transmission. The truck was factory rated to have 500hp and 525 ft/lbs of torque but many believed that these numbers were grossly underrated, with regular cab models eating up the quarter mile in 13.6 seconds, which was impressive for a heavy vehicle such as a full sized pickup. But the SRT-10 wasn’t just a straight line competitor and actually handled quite well too thanks to some upgraded components and modified factory offerings. The production rack and pinion from the Ram Heavy Duty was modified for the SRT-10 as was the front independent suspension. Bilstein shocks hung from all four corners and sport tuned springs helped carve corners when needed. Dodge also added a fifth shock attached to the rear axle assembly to help limit wheel hop, which was

The SAFE And The SERIOUS Holiday Season Traffic Safety Display Visual Graphic Billboards and Banners Reminding Drivers and Passengers to “Buckle Up!” and “Drive Now...Text Later!” throughout the holidays across Rhode Island and nearby Massachusetts and Connecticut. The SAFE And The SERIOUS Traffic Safety Campaign was created by Award-Winning Artist, Cartoonist, Author, Writer and Public Safety Advocate, Jim Weicherding. Jim resides in Burrillville, Rhode Island where this campaign first launched in 2003 at the Burrillville High School one way parking lot exit. The Burrillville Rhode Island, Police Department, recognized the visual power of Jim’s new traffic safety campaign community outreach efforts and adopted his campaign once he introduced it to their police department. A subsequent seat belt survey a month prior to, and then all month long, after Jim displayed his Buckle Up! Visual Reminder viewed by Students, School Faculty and Parents, not only in the Burrillville Community, but also surrounding community students, faculty, parents and friends visiting for their sporting events also saw this Buckle Up! Visual Reminder were buckling up a lot more than before the billboard was displayed on the school grounds. Seat belts usages increased by 55% after Jim and the Burrillville Police Department put The SAFE And The SERIOUS Billboard on permanent display. Now, a The SAFE And The SERIOUS Traffic Safety Billboard is on permanent display in front of their police department. Prior to the TSATS Billboard going on display, seat belt usage amongst students was a poor 22% exiting the high

played because of Jim’s strong vehicle graphics, straight forward traffic safety messages and it was seen on a daily basis, not a just a couple weeks out of the year during national traffic safety focus weeks. It is always sending traffic safety messages to anyone viewing Jim’s traffic safety graphics and campaign displays. Now, TSATS has added a new message to its campaign, “Drive Now...Text Later!” With a classic muscle car as vehicle of choice, and two traffic safety messages, the impact has grown even stronger in communities adopting The SAFE And The SERIOUS Traffic Safety Visual Reminders. These daily reminders are having a positive affect on younger drivers and passengers. TSATS Posters with the same exterior graphics and traffic safety messages are going on display inside the high schools in the senior lounges, nurses offices, resource officers offices and gymnasiums across New England in 2018.

Burrillville Police Officers were dispatched to roadside detail on the main road exiting the high school grounds surveyed and documented seat belt usage jumped up to 77% in just one month after the traffic safety billboard was dis-

It’s already started in Burrillville, Rhode Island and almost every other community across the state of Rhode Island has followed their lead in their own high schools and even middle schools knowing that these students are passengers in vehicles now, but will soon be licensed drivers. Jim has received numerous Awards, Honors, Recognitions and even a Citizen Service Medal from the US Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Police Chiefs Associations, State Police and Public Safety Advocate Groups and Organizations over the past few years for his dedicated creative efforts to try and prevent traffic related injuries and save lives involving kids, teens and families. Jim’s TSATS Creative Traffic Safety Community and Statewide Campaign Efforts are recognized and utilized nationwide by DOT Department of Traffic Safety Offices, State Police and Community Police Departments in an effort to Save Lives in their own Communities, Cities and States. Jim simplified the need for Heightening Awareness and Education by creating strong visuals and straight forward traffic safety messages that have been proven to be effective because they are viewed on a daily basis everywhere his The SAFE And The SERIOUS Traffic Safety Billboards, Banners and Posters are displayed. Whether it is in front of a police department, a high school or middle school, or displayed inside these same locations on walls in the community, city and state that you reside in, the messages are perfectly clear: “Drive Safe, Drive Serious!” Have a Safe and Happy Holiday Season and remember to Always “Buckle Up!” and “Drive Now, Text Later!” These are words to “Live” by.

Friend ”

By JOE FORTE Back in 1971, I had a 442 Oldsmobile on order. A friend, Louie Abbenante, suggested I look at a particular ’70 Corvette Stingray, which had 4,000 miles on it and would have been the same cost as the new 442 Olds. There was no choice to be made here. I had always wanted a Corvette and now my dream was finally coming to life. I purchased the Corvette and, for just a few years, kept everything stock… until I met the street racers. I thought I had a fast car... no. The street racers had all the power! I met John Conti, a good friend of my cousin, Steve Spera, who had introduced us years ago. At the time, John was working out of his home garage which was basically a full blown machine shop. John worked on my car and installed a “Holley” carburetor with a hi-rise manifold, headers and a super tune up. Now I had a street racing worthy car! Soon after, John moved his shop to a two bay garage on Park Ave in Cranston, RI. That’s when the fun really started. In the mid 70’s, John suggested, “A turbo charger with nitrous oxide?” Of course I said “Okay!”

‘70

Keep in mind this was ‘70’s technology applied to a basically stock 4 speed 1970 Corvette driveline. The 400 Turbo and 4:11 gears were installed with a custom console shifter. The engine was internally beefed up with the existing forged crank, Pink rods were beam polished and forged low compression pistons were installed. The 2.02/1.58 cylinder heads were given a multi angle valve job, ports were blended and enlarged at the required areas with the intake manifold ports also modified. A draw through T4 based Air Research Turbo was installed with a 42 DCOE Weber Carburetor, mounted to a weld on turbo inlet adapter. No waste gate was installed with the CFM limitations of the Weber, limiting boost to 14 P.S.I. A modified Mallory Unilite distributor was installed with a trial and error weights/ springs juggled, allowing street drivability with 30% CAM 2 racing fuel and a crude (by today’s standards) water injection home fabricated system, to eliminate any possible detonation during fuel throttle/Joe Forte extravaganzas.

“My Oldest Friend ” Continued from page 33

All “AN” stainless steel (the real McCoy) fittings and lines (no aluminum) were installed and every hex was 320 grit Satin finished, with the fitting bodies being high luster polished (fussy). To boost the nitrous fuel supply pressure above 14 lbs boost pressure, a 1975 280Z auxiliary fuel pump was installed for the nitrous fuel delivery only, after extensive

nitrous and fuel jets were juggled-all activated by a full throttle switch, if the console mounted toggle switch was previously set in the “on” position.

The entire block and cast iron cylinder heads were ground in 7 grit sizes, primed, sanded and “Imron” painted Chevy Orange, with the

intake thermally coated satin black. All brackets, mounts, etc. were Imron painted or plated. Fast forward to current day modifications/ upgrades. Now, back at John’s shop, he said, “Let’s do a little more”. I said, “of course!” John went to no ends to make my Corvette as perfect as it could possibly be for a 47 year old vehicle. Currently a 45 DCOE Weber upgrade has been installed, along with an “Aeromotive” boost reference bypass type regulator, to control more precisely, 34| Motorhead Magazine - December 2017

the nitrous fuel pressure supplied by a new “Walbro” auxiliary fuel pump. Nitrous/fuel jetting will be recalibrated with this new set up. An “Aquamist” methanol injection system has also been installed with a custom stainless steel tank, buried in the left fender/louver area, with a fill neck near the master cylinder for easy access. The right rear compartment mounted “MSD Ignition” boost retard control pulls timing out with a twist of the dial in the passenger’s compartment, maximized at 15 degrees, along with a Nitrous retard box when the pedal is floored. In the interim, I had my car painted at Crans-

ton Auto Body by Willy and Randy, who were equally as talented as John. I consider both shops second to none in their expertise, attitude and service. John has worked on my car for over 40 years from his home garage to his shop… wherever he went my Vette went, right up to present day. When I sit in my Corvette, my oldest friend, and go for a drive, I’m back in the ‘70’s in my mind and body. Well, maybe not the body… I wonder if John can do anything about that. The beauty here in that when I drive my Vette,

there are no navigation voices telling me where to go, no satellite radio, no GPS, everything is in my control-just like back in the ‘70’s. I have such an appreciation for my friends who have helped me create a truly unique car. Many thanks to John Conti and his family at Conti’s Auto Service & Motorsports. Willy, Randy and the crew at Cranston Auto Bodyto all of you extremely talented professionals-Thank you! See you on the road!

READERS RIDES JIM WEICHERDING

What is it about our rides that separates us from the rest? Is it because we have a tendency to love fast muscle cars, hot rods, cool classic trucks and big show trucks verses the conventional vehicle owners out there? That’s why I write our Readers Rides every month. I like to take these cherished rides and profile them along with their owners. Put them under a spotlight all by themselves and not with the crowd. Now, we all know about the crowds. We see them day in, and day out, week, after week, month, after month at all of the area weekend car shows and cruise nights from March through the end of October every cruising season across New England. Many of us die hard enthusiasts don’t stop there. We travel far and wide into the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC. to attend big cruising scene events. I know I do. I can’t get enough of this classic and show vehicle lifestyle and hobby. I like writing about people’s pride and joy classic and show vehicles. To see their faces light up with a smile when I deliver their copies of Motörhead Magazine

to their homes, shops or meet up with them at an area car show or cruise night. The issue that features their own READERS RIDES Articles every month. This is December. Finding a specific Readers Rides vehicle is not as easy as it is in early spring, or even late winter, if the weather is mild enough to go meet with somebody and take some photos for their upcoming READERS RIDES Feature Article in the next month, or two. Spring 2018 will be here before you know it. If you happen to have a cool classic car or truck, or even a show car or truck, do not hesitate to contact me via my email @ jwpisces14@aol.com and make sure that you include at least six good photos and information about your rides. Type READERS RIDES in the Subject Box to avoid being sent into the Internet void of floating unanswered emails because it ended up in my Spam Folder and not arriving directly into my New Mail Folder. I do not want to miss any opportunity to showcase your cherished ride in Motörhead Magazine READERS RIDES Section in 2018. From all of us here at Motörhead Magazine, we wish you a Safe & Happy Holiday Season. See you next year! CALL 401-965-9012 TO ADVERTISE

When Cars Are The Stars JIM WEICHERDING I often watch older movies made back in the 50’s and 60’s, and even the early 70’s, not just for the sake of watching these great nostalgia movies because of storyline content or the actors and ac-

chase scene was going to last for half the movie. Speaking of half the movie: What about Vanishing Point and Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry? Now, those are full length chase scene movies but that’s a topic for another issue. Then again, we have the movie Death Proof but that had chase scenes and was

after the movie premise. Mad Max Movies come to mind. Death Race Movies the same thought process. Even The Transporter Movies were about the cars and the chase. As far as I’m concerned The Cars Are The Stars and the actors and actresses are not playing the leading roles. For an example, and I know a lot of you saw this coming: OUTLAW RUN The Book and OUTLAW RUN Beyond The Book Series is all about the Badass Muscle Cars and Police Chases but there is an underlying UnderDog premise to this story that actually has an action-packed storyline that eliminates classic cars and trucks from our lives as viable means of transportation anywhere across the USA. The Government takes away our rights and our freedoms to drive our classic cars and trucks freely on America’s roadways and then outlaws and bans them for life. OUTLAW RUN is not a movie yet, but it will be. It will be a car guy and gal worst nightmare come to life for real across America. We are already facing these state restrictions and regulations right now in some states and that list will continue to grow over time. OUTLAW RUN The Movie will have Star Cars but there is a very compelling story premise that touches every single classic car and truck owner and enthusiast across the USA. Love the cars, but appreciate the story premise too. If time has something to say about this, the only classic cars and trucks we will be seeing will be on the movie screen or on our own television sets. Not on our roadways.

tresses that I like to watch in these types of movies. It’s also about the cars. I love watching a 60’s movie and seeing all the classics I enjoy seeing at car shows and cruise nights in almost brand new showroom condition on the big screen or my television. Then there are movies that use classic cars and trucks as vehicles of choice. The photos in this particular article are the actual classic muscle cars from one of my favorite movies: THE PUNISHER.

not a chase movie like the two previously mentioned movies. You have got to love car and truck chase movies by any standard even if the chase is just part of the movie, or the chase is the movie. The Chase with Charlie Sheen actually was titled

Yup, that’s The Punisher’s Pontiac GTO and The Singing Guitar Killers Mopar Muscle Car in these photos. These photos were sent to me from the movie set location in southern Florida where the movie was filmed. You gotta love that GTO! That Mopar ain’t too shabby either. In fact, after The Punisher totals his GTO after leaping through the air over a lifting draw bridge to escape the killer. He kills him and takes his car. Now, that’s class! Let’s not forget about the greats like Bullitt. This movie has an awesome Mustang verses a Mopar in what is called The Greatest Chase movie ever filmed. But that was filmed long before Bad Boys ll. And as far as great chases goes. That chase scene with multiple classic muscle cars, foreign vehicles, SUV’s, tractor trailers, police cars and even a boat being flipped, tossed, turning head over heals, bursting into flames and exploding on the roadway and very long bridge is unbelievable! Michael Bay must have had a field day after watching that unfold. And long? That chase was longer than any chase I have ever seen in a movie before that was not a chase themed movie and that includes Gone In Sixty Seconds. I thought that Shelby Mustang 46| Motorhead Magazine - December 2017

Let’s hope OUTLAW RUN stays fiction for as long as it can stay that way. For now, let’s watch some classic movies and watch a 1960’s vehicle driven down the road like the owner just bought it and drove it off the lot. I know I will. I love those Cars Stars Movies!

2017 Points Seri

ED YESSAIAN Red’s Shoe Barn Super Pro Points Standings

E.C.O.P.E. Jr Dragster B Points Standings

The Super Pro Championship was up for grabs for a good part of the season with Rick Bell eventually gaining and defending the top spot. Dave Miller made an impressive showing, as did Ken Leblanc.

Aiden Baker had a tremendously successful season, finishing off with a significant lead. Runner up Madison Douglas also had an impressive showing with a handful of wins as well.

A&B Tire Pro Points Standings

Dennis K. Burke Super Comp Points Standings

After three seasons out, I came back to Pro and in my very first round of competition I had to face Jared Kinson. Obviously that didn’t go well. But with 6 wins in 15 races there was no one else that could catch Jared Kinson this season.

Chris Damiano was the top dog in Super Comp with Mr and Mrs Michaud following close behind. This was an awesome class to follow and should be just as exciting in the 2018 season.

Diesel Direct Super Street Points Standings Tim’s Speed & Custom Street Points Standings NEW GENERATION star Brandon Karaguezian held the lead in Street for a good portion of the season and sealed the deal with the 2017 Championship, successfully fending off the Veteran Dan Caissie.

Another member of the NEW GENERATION walked away with championship glory as Chris LeBlanc took the Super Street title. Bob Wollseiffen and Bob Martinelli were both close behind with just a couple rounds keeping them from the top.

MOMS Motorcycle/Snowmobile Points Standings

Top Bike Points Standings

This was a pretty competitive group with Ed Hughes, Kevin Mathews, and John Civitarese all in the running for most of the season. Eventually Ed Hughes would capture the Championship.

Tom Peterson rode his way to victory with Carl Cicchetto and Ed Hughes right behind him. This was another class that was a lot of fun to watch, as you just stared in amazement at the elapsed times these guys were running.

E.C.O.P.E. Jr Dragster A Points Standings

Street Fighter Points Standings

Brandon Miller started the 2017 season with a win in the very first race and just kept on stacking the points. There were a few instances during the season where a couple different competitors almost caught up to Miller but eventually he would just run with it until the end.

Dave Nadeau took an early lead in Street Fighter and never looked back. A couple times during the season different competitors had a chance to catch up but Nadeau successfully fended them off for the Championship.

What’s On Your Shelf? What You Should and Shouldn’t Be1935Tossing This• Warwick, Winter Elmwood Avenue RI 02888 • 401-381-1350 Insuring All Aspects of the Automotive Industry

Lauryn “Hotwheels” Pontiac-Vernancio

The most challenging task that we are trying to put off this winter is ultimately cleaning out the garage. There are a ton of items to go through, from left over assorted tools, to containers of grease, to half empty bottles of fluids that are bringing us a sense of unnecessary clutter. What even the most vigilant person hasn’t considered is the actual probability of their products being “expired” or well past use. When perusing through your stash of goods on top off your toolbox and shelves, you might want to keep one basic question in mind. “How long have I had this?” One of the most prominent contaminants that will unfold right before your eyes which can be a dreadful harm to your vehicle is hydroscopic fluids. What does hydroscopic mean? Hydroscopic describes something that will readily take up and retain moisture. A common hydroscopic fluid that would cause quite a conundrum is brake fluid. When brake fluid absorbs moisture, the boiling point of the fluid becomes lower and will cause the fluid to compress less. Moisture within your braking system will give the fluid the ability to limit your braking power, and in turn rust out your brake lines and all necessary hardware and components. Being a New Englander during the winter months will accelerate your fluid’s water-sucking habits and this is why it is discourage to keep larger containers on your garage shelf. If possible, buy the Serving Commercial Clients in RI, CT and MA smallest bottles at your local Auto Parts retailer.

The Do’s and Dont’s of Buying a Remote Car Starter GEORGE ARAKELIAN, JR.

right? Sure they are, but they are definitely not the same!

The subject of this article will mainly be centered on the key things you don’t want to do when buying a remote car starter this season, with a few do’s thrown in as well. Keep in mind these are basically universal truths. Even if you don’t buy from A Custom Car Stereo Center, sticking to these will definitely pay off!

Rule #2 is….. DO ask what the warranty is on the system! Any reputable remote car starter manufacturer will warranty the main equipment for the life of the vehicle. The remotes for the systems themselves will vary from one to two years. Mainly due to the remotes undergoing a decent amount of abuse over their lives, being dropped, getting wet, etc. Make sure the shop installing the system will also be warrantying the installation labor. The manufacturer of the automatic starter will warranty the parts, but the shop will be the one footing the warranty of the installation. This is something where we strongly suggest going to the location you’re thinking about using, and checking out their facilities. Have they been in business for a while? Do their facilities look like they are serious about doing the best job for their customer possible? Just being in business for a long time doesn’t equal quality. You can really tell a lot about a business by the way they handle and present themselves. Check their reviews! Do they have quality control procedures in place to make sure employees don’t take shortcuts that could endanger you or the people around the vehicle? (I am talking about multiple thousands of pounds of vehicle starting while unattended!

A Custom Car Stereo Center

Rule #1 is certainly the most important of all… DON’T buy a remote car starter system from one place, and have it installed at another!! Whether it’s the internet, auto parts place, or some random Black Friday deal, buying from one place and having it installed somewhere else has the potential for disaster. First, imagine dropping your vehicle off for the day to have your remote car starter installed. The anticipation and excitement grows as the day goes by and it’s almost time to go pick up your awesome new convenience feature! All of that excitement turns to frustration as the shop calls you to let you know the remote start you brought in isn’t working properly. Now what do you do?? They’ve already installed the complete system, so you’re forced to pay for the installation, ship the main control unit back to the place you got it from, and hope they get it taken care of and back to you in a reasonable amount of time. Once you get it back, assuming they were even an authorized dealer and the warranty was good, you then have to pay the technician to re-install and program it all over again. Not only is there a cost involved that just negated any saving you initially had, but you’ve also been inconvenienced by having to drop your vehicle off multiple times to be worked on. So much for your new “convenience system” huh? Now, assume you had bought your remote car start from the same shop. If the product had an issue, you wouldn’t have a care in the world! The technician simply walks in the stockroom, picks up another unit, programs it and your vehicle is ready to go right on time.

ming, and intricacies of the systems I install. When you ask that same technician to install a system they are not familiar with, it’s going to take longer, with more potential headaches. The last thing you want are return trips to fix random programming issues. It’s kind of like taking your windows computer into an Apple store for service.

It’s a fact that installation is the single most important thing when it comes to a remote starter, so important, that most companies won’t even warranty their product unless the selling authorized dealer did the installation! I as a mobile electronics technician install numerous car remote starts each year, and they become intimately familiar with the wiring, programCALL 401-965-9012 TO ADVERTISE

NEW GENERATIO

ED YESSAIAN Over the years, I have always praised the New England Dragway Junior Dragster program and now look forward to the time when my own son (Motorhead writer Xander Anthony) will be able to compete in Juniors with so many great young racers. Through the years I have watched countless kids grow up at NE Dragway and have always admired the family environment that the

sport provides. By the time the kids graduate from Junior Dragsters they have acquired countless life lessons that will stay with them all their lives, helping develop them into productive and successful individuals. These kids learn at a young age the spirit of competition, good sportsmanship, and gain many friends for life, as they move into full sized vehicles and go up against racers with decades of experience. In 2016 the New Generation Challenge was formed as a way to

showcase the talents of racers age 16-25 and in 2017 the tradition continued with some of the top talent in the New England area showing off their stellar reaction times and killer bracket racing skills. Normally I run the New Generation with a handful of assistants from the NE Dragway staff, but on the morning of October 14th, on my way to the track, my little buddy Xander wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feeling

too good and we had to turn around and go home. This is when the New England Dragway RACING FAMILY stepped up and made it happen. Raffe Karaguezian and Ray Knight stepped up with no hesitation to help get the event going with Raffe even borrowing the Plum Crazy Challenger RT of Dan Grimes to fly 50 miles each way to my house so he could grab the trophies and prize money for the kids. I have never felt more proud to belong to such an incredible group of people as I did this day!!

After that short morning the delay and a couple of Qualifying runs, the Eliminations began and round by round here is the recap of New Englands best young drag racers going head to head… ROUND 1 1. Steven Knight would have the reaction time advantage with a .061 versus AJ Cowing .152 light. Knight would take the win with a 11.24 on an 11.22 dial. 2. Tony Benea would move on to round two thanks to a break out pass by Jason Moniz, who had a huge reaction time advantage of .019 versus Benea’s .080. 3. PJ Lorenti with a .008 light would take the win against Robert Lavoie whose .175 was just too much of a deficit to overcome. 4. Brandon Karaguezian would have the reaction time advantage with a .033 light vesus JT Holmes .284. Both guys were right on their respective dial ins but the win light went to Karaguezian. 5. Brandon Cate and Kyle Murray ran a real close race with Murray edging out Cate for the win. Murray had the reaction time advantage with a .057 versus Cate’s .064 with Murray running very close to his dial of 17.16 with a 17.11 run.

1. Steven Knight would take the win over Tony Benea after both gentlemen had nearly identical reaction times. Knight would be just a little closer to his dial for the victory. 2. Brandon Cate would break out trying to stay ahead of Brandon Karaguezian who would rip out a .004 light to make a big difference in this one. 3. PJ Lorenti would red-light to push his sister Michelle Lorenti on to Round 3 ROUND 3 1. Michelle Lorenti would red-light to send Ste-
