Scalp Micropigmentation is the number one non-surgical solution for male baldness, female or male balding, hair loss, alopecia condition, thinning of the hair, receding hairline for men, and women, and birth or scar camouflaging. This incredible life-changing procedure is when a well-trained Medical Certified Practitioner inserts a natural carbon-based mix dye pigments into the epidermal layer of the scalp replicating the natural appearance of real hair follicles or strands, giving you the appearance of having full hair on the patient’s head. It can be used to create a whole new hairline, cover your receding hairline, make thin hair look much fuller, cover women alopecia / thin hair, or even cover existing scars from FUT/FUE hair transplant. The result is magical with instant results that last for years! the price is a fraction of what a hair transplant would cost. Do not wait any longer, you deserve to feel and look younger. Give us a call.

Benefits of Scalp Micropigmentation includes:

• Give you the look of a real, full, youthful head of hair • Mimic your full front hairline • Restore receding hairlines on the patient’s semi- or fully-bald head • Cover up all types of alopecia condition • Density filling with long hair for both women and men • Cover up burns, defected birthmarks, and unwanted scars

• Cover up all scarring caused by unsuccessful hair-loss transplant surgery while enhancing the visual effect of real hair follicles The price is a fraction of what a hair transplant would cost. Do not wait any longer, you deserve to feel and look younger.

PAUL’S 1967 DODGE DART

READERS RIDES JIM WEICHERDING Photos ByPAUL EVANGELISTA

Paul Evangelista is the proud owner of this 1967 Dodge Dart. It’s an original GT car but the engine was only a slant 6 when it was manufactured. Paul said this Dodge Dart now features a 340 engine. Bottom end is an original 340 six pack motor from an AAR Cuda. The engine features a Crower 521/528 solid cam. Edelbrock performer RPM aluminum heads with an Edelbrock Victor intake, Holley 750 HP carburetor, Hooker Super Comp Headers, MSD 6AL, 4-Speed Tranny, Dana rearend with 4.56 gears and Master Line axles and Cal Tracs. Fiberglass fenders and hood. Flowmasters make this Dodge Dart an attention getter long before it is seen cruisin down the roads. This car is the exact same car Paul sold 21 years ago when he was about to get married. He

knew he had to make a big boy decision in life and sell it to start his family. How many of us know and understand what he’s talking about? I know that I do. Buying their first house, eventually having children, and dealing with the family life was his priority at that time. Paul sold his Dodge Dart but he never got it out of his system. A few years ago, his wife (Maria), said, “If we can ever find your old car, we are finally ready to buy it back.” Unknown to Paul at the time, his wife was searching for it without him knowing what she was doing.

Unfortunately, all of her searches came up with no information. Then about a month ago, Paul’s friend, Joey, sent him a text with a link attached to it. It was his Dodge Dart and the car was for sale. It was the exact same car he once owned and his wife had been searching for online. Paul’s wife messaged the owner and told him that her husband was coming to look at it. Paul dropped what he was doing. He and his buddy, Ernie, drove 90 minutes to go look at the car. Paul told him, “I’ll give you

the asking price.” At this time Paul was building a 1991, Chevy Camaro, Z28. He was able to sell that car the same week. Paul purchased his long lost 1967, Dodge Dart, and was then able to take it home where it belongs.

The Newport Bridge Authority is ending their normal cash payments at midnight on October 27th, 2021. They will no longer be accepting cash payments and live toll collectors will be replaced by cameras that will take photos of everyone’s license plates as the vehicle passes through the toll payment center. The long time practice of human beings collecting Newport Bridge tolls will come to an end permanently. Tolls are expected to increase before the end of this year but that toll increase has not been announced at the time of this publication’s October deadline for submissions of articles and featured content. The Newport Bridge Authority also expects that this new technology will also free up traffic clusters entering and exiting the town of Newport, Rhode Island, especially during the busy vacation and tourist seasons here in the Ocean State. As many of you reading this article are probably aware, the long lines at the Newport Bridge toll booths can get very congested during the spring, summer and fall seasons heading to Newport and leaving Newport through the toll booth areas. Trying to find cash in your pocket at the last moment when the toll booths are not busy can be very frustrating too. Technology has its pros and cons but no matter what those pros and cons happen to be, technology will always win out. I see plenty of classic cars and trucks passing over the Newport Bridge during the summer months with quite a few car shows and activities taking place in the towns of Newport, Portsmouth and Middletown that attract a crowd of people to these seaside communities. I’m not sure how the pay-by-mail process will affect all of us but I guess only time will tell if it’s a good thing or a bad thing. I’m certain late payment fees will play out and possibly generate even more revenue to the state of Rhode Island if drivers and vehicle owners happen to forget to send in their payments on time or decide not to pay the toll fees at all. I do feel bad for all of the toll booth collectors and hope the state has other jobs for them once they lose their positions on October 27th. Let’s hope that this is the case for each and every one of them. Looks like we won’t have to dig into our pockets for cash anymore when crossing the Newport Bridge after October 27th. I also hope new toll booth access fees are within reason and won’t keep people away from the town of Newport, Rhode Island next year or the years after that. We need to make sure that this new technology doesn’t have a negative impact on Newport residents and businesses in the process and increased fees keep residents of Rhode Island and visitors away from this beautiful seaside community. Time will tell.

VIKING MOTORSPORTS Ford vs Chevy Shootout

By ED YESSAIAN Photos By PRIMETIME VIDEO AND PHOTO In a race season plagued by rain and unpredictable weather patterns there was a bit of concern leading up to Sunday August 1st, which was scheduled to be the 8th Annual Viking Motorsports Ford vs Chevy Shootout. Luckily Mother Nature cooperated and racing went on without a hitch, having one of the best attendances in the event’s history. New for 2021 was both Junior Street and Junior Dragster classes as well as the usual bracket and “Heads Up” classes. New personal bests were recorded for multiple competitors and a whole lot of new faces made their way to the Winner’s Circle…

BRACKET CLASS/ BOX A handful of very tough competitors went at it in this class and the final round put Dave Cieslik up against Chris Croteau. Cieslik would take the win in BOX.

BRACKET CLASS/ NO BOX This has always been the largest and most competitive class and 2021 continued that tradition with the biggest names in Street Eliminator and Pro Eliminator joining the party. Viking Motorsports head honcho Scott Erickson put a hired gun in his car for the day and that man Glenn Boudreau made it to the finals against everyone’s favorite good guy Dave Furtado. Furtado would win that matchup and head to the Winner’s Circle.

HEADS UP CLASS/ TRACK DEMON Nick Stack would capture top honors in the wheelie popping little blue truck that spent the day ripping off some seriously impressive timeslips. Looking forward to seeing that thing at future events!!

HEADS UP CLASS/ STREET DEMON

In a class that previously hasn’t had more than 2-3 cars, a total of 14 competitors jumped into the “Heads Up” action this year!! 3-time Street Demon Champion Gregg Boudreu would finally be eliminated after Motorhead’s Ed Yessaian would put a cash bounty on whoever could slay the former Champ. But the story of the day was Vinny Tessitore and the Mean Green Machine running very low 9’s on his way to the Winner’s Circle.

NHRA JUNIOR STREET Kaylee Genualdo and Alex Erickson continued their rivalry, this time it would be Kaylee taking the win in her MINT Chevy Camaro. Keep an eye on her this season, she is absolutely on fire.

JUNIOR DRAGSTER Kaylee Genualdo would once again take no prisoners, this time besting Travis Paquin as she pulled double duty for the day. The future of drag racing is definitely looking bright based on the number of Juniors that were at this event!!

The weekend of the North East Auto Show was intriguing with new models introduced from all makes to say the least. What really hit home with us was the all new 2015 Camaro Z28 on the showroom floor. Not only did it bring back memories from when it was first introduced in 1967 when the Chevrolet Camaro first

four wheel anti-lock disc brakes and there are Multimatic DSSV dampers. A dual-mode performance exhaust gives the car a nice rumble but will surely not cause any headaches. The car is lubricated by a dry sump oiling system and has a standard track-designed cooling system that is liquid to liquid between the oil lubrication, the transmission, and differential. The chassis is rolled off by nineteen inch forged aluminum wheels with high performance Pirelli PZeroTrofeo R “summer only” tires.

Tutto Italiano – The Art of Italian Automotive Heritage

By ALLEN HARRIS

Photos By: JENN HARRIS

If you are any sort of automotive enthusiast, you owe yourself a trip to Larz Anderson Automotive Museum. It’s a very unassuming place stationed in what looks like a gentle parkway in Brookline, Massachusetts. The driveway up actually used to be the old driveway and the large building, reminiscent of a castle, sits aloft the main driveway is the home of an amazing collection. The main building is actually the carriage house and is home to the oldest collection of motorcars in the United States. The collection was begun by Larz Anderson himself. It all started in 1899 when he purchased a horseless carriage made by Winston Motor Carriage Company. That collection would grow to over 32. As vehicles became retired they’d be placed in the old carriage house. By 1927 it began to take on tours and in 1948 when Isabel Anderson died she gifted the estate to Brookline with the stipulation that it would continue as the Larz Anderson Collection. Later they began to add lawn events. One such event is Tutto Italiano. The show is a dedication to vehicles of Italian heritage, but due to that heritage and its close ties to the title supercar, it actually became something of an exotic super car show. It took me a few years to even realize that it was just an Italian car show. If you weren’t privy to automotive styling or terminology there’s still a good chance you wouldn’t know that even now. The reason being that vehicles like Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin and even McLaren share space in the venue with more notorious brands like Lamborghini and Ferrari. I mean who would even question the heritage of a Pantera? These brands blend so smoothly together that some people even confuse the source of brands like McLaren and I’m sure that’s a plus. All in all the drive to go there is simple: Pure and unadulterated horsepower. It’s a candy store for both boys and men alike. How far does Tutto Italiano go back is a question I couldn’t answer. For me it’s just always been there. I have featured displays in both 2009 and 2010, but I’ve attended far before that and seen pictures that go back as

far as 2003. I’m sure it goes far beyond that, but the feel is distinctively classic. The music played comes from old sources blended in with tunes from the Godfather, the relaxing vibe only broken by the roar of a flat plane crankshaft revving up over 8,000 rpms, and even that can be soothing at times. What I do know is that Tutto is truly a family event. For some you can even see the passing of the torch as young men and women of all ages soak up the sights in a field of red paint. Some father’s teach lessons of turning wrenches and problems that are unique to the Italian brands while children school their elders on new vehicles, their titles, and their impressive figures of horsepower, top speed, and even lateral G’s. While other, like paparazzi, break out their cameras and phones to capture any footage they can, like Ahab at a White Whale convention. Truly everyone that comes here seems to have something to offer and something they take with them. For me, Tutto Italiano has become a way of life. One moment of the year all my friends come together again. Friendships I’ve built over 20 years. We’re all like moths drawn to the flame. I used to be matador of the arena and now I’m a humble spectator as a new guard leads the charge of Bulls, both old and new. That’s the beauty of the association of these cars, we age like fine wine, the bottle only growing more experienced, more expensive over time, but distinctly never forgotten. Once you’re a member of this fraternity you’re a member for life. Here elders are still cherished and revered, not forgotten. I can appreciate that. Kindred spirits. As long as this torch burns, we will have a place. And if today was any indicator, this fire will never burn out. And that’s is indeed a world I can live in. CALL 401-965-9012 TO ADVERTISE

However, Hoosier Tire East officials have indicated the tire situation should be resolved by the time the World Series arrives on the calendar. Based on this information, ACT and PASS officials are making the Sunoco Modifieds a centerpiece of the three-day racing festival, which also includes the $20,000-to-win Thompson 300 for the Outlaw Open Modified Series. The Sunoco Modifieds are running one event each on Sunoco World Series Friday, Twisted Tea World Series Saturday, and Sunoco World Series Sunday. All events will count towards the 2021 Thompson Speedway track championship. More information is to-be-determined. “We wanted to do something for the Sunoco Modified division and its fans,” ACT managing partner Cris Michaud said. “The tire shortage has affected tracks and series throughout the country. In our region, the SK Modifieds were who got the short end. Thankfully, it looks like there will be plenty of tires available by early October. It created a great opportunity for a Sunoco Modified mini-series to end their season on a high note.” With the announcement, the division line-up for the Twisted Tea Tripoint Showdown 75 on September 15 has been set. The $5,000-to-win Outlaw Open Modified Series feature, which is the final tune-up for the Thompson 300, headlines the card. It’s joined by a $1,200-towin ACT-type Late Model feature plus the Vandi Auto Supply Limited Sportsmen, SK Light Modifieds, and Thompson Mini Stocks. ACT and PASS are still offering bonus money for Sunoco Modifieds who enter the Tripoint Showdown 75. The highest-finishing Sunoco Modified will receive an extra $400 on top of the posted purse. There is also a $300 bonus for the second-highest Sunoco Modified, $200 for the third-highest, and $100 each for the fourth-

and fifth-highest. SK Light Modified teams will be able to buy at least one tire for the Tripoint Showdown event and possibly two depending on availability. More information, including the schedule of events, will be announced next week. The Sunoco Modified Triple Crown Series is also the latest piece in the puzzle for the Sunoco World Series of Speedway Racing schedule. Other confirmed events include the Thompson 300 on Sunday, the ACT Late Model Tour and PASS Super Late Models on Saturday, the track’s local divisions, and an 8-cylinder Street Stock Open. Officials are finalizing the division line-up and should have an announcement ready soon. The Wednesday racing series at Thompson Speedway wraps up with the Tripoint Showdown 75 presented by Twisted Tea on Wednesday, September 15 at 6:00pm. The Outlaw Open Modified Series has a $5,000-to-win showdown featuring some of the biggest names in Tour-type Modi-

fieds. They’ll be joined by the Late Models, Vandi Auto Supply Limited Sportsmen, SK Light Modifieds, and Mini Stocks. Admission is $30 for adults, $10 for kids ages 6-12, and free for kids ages 5 and under. There will also be a live pay-per-view on Speed51.TV for those who can’t make it to the track.

MOPAR HONEY ‘72 CHARGER JIM WEICHERDING Her nickname is Mopar Honey. Her real name is Gail Buffone. She loves Mopar’s. Gail’s very first vehicle was a 1968 Dodge Charger. She purchased that Mopar when she was just a teenager attending her junior year in high school. She eventually had to part with that car and it was very hard on her to do that. She loved that car. Gail also knew then, that she had a love for everything Mopar. She moved on from her first vehicle purchase and sale just like most of us have done over the years.

In the spring of 1989, Gail found her next Mopar and knew that she just had to have it. She said she heard it screaming for her to rescue it and she did just that shortly after finding it. This 1972 Dodge Charger features an original 400 under the hood and a 727 Torqueflite transmission. The exterior is a bright red that stands out in a crowd. Its dual exhaust sounds great and it’s a real head turner at the car shows and on the roadways. Gail said it had 52,000 original miles on the odometer when she purchased this beautiful Mopar and it currently has 164,000 of cruisin’ miles on it to date. Gail attends and showcases her Mopar Dodge Charger at classic car shows across New England and loves the car show scene and the people involved with them. She’s definitely a Mopar Honey!

CEMENTING A DYNASTY: JUSTIN BONSIGNORE CLINCHES THIRD NASCAR WHELEN MODIFIED TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP WITH STAFFORD WIN By SOUZA MEDIA / KYLE SOUZA

STAFFORD, Conn. -- Justin Bonsignore sealed his third career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour championship on Saturday, September 25 at Stafford Motor Speedway. Bonsignore accomplished the goal in fine fashion -- taking down his first career win at the Connecticut half-mile after 40 times of coming up short.

get to Victory Lane. Tonight, to finally get a win here at Stafford to top off our third championship, it’s special.” Bonsignore used a strong car during the first 128 laps -- all under green -- to motor to the front. He started on the outside pole after qualifying second, and dropped to the bottom of the top-five early -- but it wasn’t long before he was charging back to the front.

Bonsignore led the field for 74 of the 152 laps in the NAPA Fall Final 150, including for the final two, where he pulled away from six-time tour champion Doug Coby to score his elusive first Stafford win. In the process, Bonsignore cemented a growing dynasty with his No. 51 Phoenix Communications, Kenneth Massa Motorsports team.

He took the lead from Anthony Nocella on lap 78 and led through the caution that was thrown at lap 129. The only time someone bested Bonsignore was when Doug Coby edged him to the line at the restart for a green-white-checkered finish at lap 150 -- but Bonsignore drove to the bottom of turn one and powered back to the lead, never looking back.

The championship was Bonsignore’s second consecutive, and third in the last four years. The Holtsville, New York, native became just the fourth driver in the 36-year history of the Whelen Modified Tour to win three or more championships -- joining Mike Stefanik (seven), Doug Coby (six) and Tony Hirschman (five) on the list.

Stafford -- a place where Bonsignore had run well at before -- was the most prestigious track on the list that Bonsignore had not been to Victory Lane. Finally, he can check it off his bucket list.

“I don’t even belong in that crowd, those guys are unbelievable,” Bonsignore said of the group. “It’s special. To come back after last year, with the shortened season, we had really good cars each and every week this year. We just couldn’t put the whole race together like we have in years past and

“One-for-41,” Bonsignore screamed after climbing from the car, jumping on top of the No. 51 in celebration. “I’m so glad we could get the win here. Three-time champion, but I can’t get past winning at Stafford. To beat Doug Coby to do it -- it’s special.

Y 2019 -- is one of the more impressive in series history. Since the start of the 2018 season, Bonsignore has 19 wins, 42 top-fives, 39 top-10s and 14 poles in his last 54 races. In 15 years of Whelen Modified Tour competition -- all for Ken Massa Motorsports -Bonsignore now has 31 career wins -- tied with Jeff Fuller and Coby for fifth on the all-time wins list. Crew chief Ryan Stone jumped into the team in 2018, and things have taken off from there. “Ryan walked right into the middle of a group of guys that had been together for a while,” Bonsignore said. “He just jumped right in with all of us instantly. His personality fits right in with our guys. We just have a great time as a team, no matter what. Ryan hates losing more than I do. He’s ruthless. We’re really fortunate to have found him.” The commitment that Massa and Bonsignore have shown to each other, after years of coming close, is finally paying off, in a big way. “Ken Massa, whenever Ryan calls and says we need something, he just doesn’t flinch,” Bonsignore said. “The combination of

leadership on our team from top to bottom is unbelievable. No one pulls in the opposite direction. Everyone has one goal in mind -- to come out here and win races and win championships every year. I’m glad we could do it again for number three.” Bonsignore bested Patrick Emerling by 22 points in the final tally on the heels of two wins, 11 top-fives and 12 top-10 finishes in 14 championship points races this season. Justin Bonsignore will return to the track on Sunday, October 10 at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park for the historic Thompson 300.

HIGHWAY TO HELL JIM WEICHERDING The owner of a black-as-night, 1969 Pontiac GTO, has a long ride ahead of him as he heads out onto Route 666 located out west somewhere in the desert states. He has to attend a cruise night on Halloween because he has a trunk full of trophies that need to be handed out to show vehicle owners that win the hearts of classic car enthusiasts at the event. He drives onto Route 666 and puts his foot heavier onto the gas pedal. Time passes by. He eventually sees a young woman walking on the side of the highway facing away from him and headed in the same direction. He pulls off the main road at a rest stop area ahead of the young woman and waits for her to approach his car. She opens the passenger door, sits down, and looks out of the passenger window never looking over at the driver. He assumes she’s tired from walking so far alone and continues on his way without asking her where she is heading. He drives his GTO for many more miles down the deserted highway and finally asks the woman where she wants to go. She doesn’t reply. She faces away from him and looks only out the passenger window. He is getting a little nervous about his silent passenger and hopes that he can reach a diner, or a gas station soon, so he can find out where she wants to go. Time goes by, and he hasn’t seen another vehicle or rest stop area anywhere for miles. He keeps checking his gas gauge and notices that it never reads less than a full tank of gas even though he has been driving for a very long time. “This is not normal,” he says under his breath. He turns on the car radio to break the silence and only hears static on every radio station he tries tuning in. The young woman continues to look out of the passenger window. He finally pulls over again and asks the woman where she is heading. He’s feeling frightened and unsure of himself. He puts his hand on her left shoulder to turn her around to face him. She turns towards him with a gruesome and hideous expression on her face and answers his question; “I’m going to Hell... and you are driving me there!” The GTO drives onto the highway Route 666, travels for miles and then disappears over the horizon never to be seen again.

Model: Jennifer Cain with one of the best spray booths imported from Italy. This spray booth is a true down draft booth with climate control. Having a climate controlled booth means you can get the perfect paint job, no matter what the New England weather entails.

This 1970 Boss 429 is very rare car. There were only 499 Cars produced. It is top coated in PPG Grabber Blue with in paint code “J”. There were only 272 produced in this color, and only 52 that had the black interior. This Kar Kraft built Boss 429 #2556 was meticulously rotisserie restored all the way down to the correct inspection paint markings and even has the date coded tires. It was originally purchased in Littleton, CO at Courtesy Motors. The original owner had it right up to the day he passed, then was handed down to his beloved son. A client of Cain’s Kustoms purchased it from the original owner’s son. During the disassembly process, Cain’s Kustoms actually found a hand written note that was tucked under the back seat from the original owner stating the history of the car and his intentions with it. The pedigree on the Boss 429 is, by far, one of a kind. The Boss 429 has won numerous awards, including 1st place at the World of Wheels in 2018. It is what is known as the Holy Grail and is the pinnacle of American Muscle Car and NASCAR history.

At the end of the day, Cains Kustoms strives to make your dreams a reality and puts customer needs and wants above all other. Give them a call today at 603-582-5553 or stop by 27 Middle Pratt Pond Road in New Ipswich, NH. Check out projects they’ve completed on their website at CainsKustoms.com.

GHOST TOWN

Halloween Cruise Night By JIM WEICHERDING The elderly couple finally purchased the car of their dreams after raising a family and eventually retired from decades of hard work in the local factory. The gentleman that sold them their newly purchased 1955 Chevy also handed them a flier for an upcoming cruise night hosted a few towns over on Halloween Night. The flier read: “Ghost Town Halloween Cruise Night / Dusk Until Midnight”. The couple had always wanted to attend a cruise night but never owned a classic car until now. That evening, they bundled up, and proudly drove to this unusual cruise night in their 1955 Chevy. There were ghosts, goblins, witches, mummies, zombies, vampires and werewolves all cruising in with their classic rides for a fun night of chills and scares along with oldies songs playing loud into the moonlit skies. The couple sat in their car and watched as parades of cool classic cars and trucks all gathered in the center of town.

Chevy leering and staring at the couple sitting inside. All the while, amazed at what they were watching around them. They both began to feel uneasy and afraid to be there but couldn’t leave because of other classics parked closely around them. Terrified, the couple quietly watched as everyone walked past them. Some costumed creatures even peered inside their windows with their scary faces and dead stare appearances. The big clock on the bank wall started to chime midnight so loudly the couple had to cover their ears to muffle the tolling bells. They watched in fear as the creatures of the night slowly made their way back to their classic rides parked in the center of town. Shocked, they watched every parked and exiting car and truck vanish before their very eyes while the clock struck down to midnight. Twelve bells chimed loudly as every classic car, truck, ghost, goblin, witch, mummy, zombie, vampire and werewolf disappeared in front of them. The surprised couple looked across at each other, reached out and held their hands tight, as they too, vanished into this Ghost Town Halloween Cruise Night. “BOO!!!”

For hours, the oldies played while creatures of the night walked up to their CALL 401-965-9012 TO ADVERTISE

Nikki Cinco�’s Turbo LS Chevelle

ED YESSAIAN

If the name Cincotti sounds familiar to you, it’s because in the last few years we have featured a handful of masterpieces belonging Nick Cincotti, the Godfather of Muscle cars. (He’s also the guy that gave my daughter Zoe the Hot Rod Wagon that was featured in the July 2020 issue of Motorhead Magazine). Trips to the Cincotti home are always an adventure because the inventory of Muscle Cars changes CONSTANTLY. Every car, truck, threewheeler, four-wheeler, motorcycle, dirt bike, or other contraption is show quality but also FOR SALE if the price is right. So, when we were invited over for a barbecue this past weekend, I could hardly wait to check out the new lineup. However, for once, Nick wasn’t the star of the show. Today the spotlight belonged to his daughter Nikki, who is by far one of the most badass chicks on the planet!! You want to know the definition of a badass chick? Nikki Cincotti sat behind the wheel of her Dad’s other Chevelle and learned to drive a stick-car in literally three minutes flat. She was a natural and she immediately demanded the keys to the 68 during what is now being referred to as a hostile takeover of this Chevelle. And this car is no joke, packing a turbo LS and a five-speed, Nikki is handing out beatings to all the little boys in town. But on top of the driving skills, she knows her mechanics as well, as she gave us full details of every aspect of the build.

with RC Purchase

The heart and soul of Nikki’s Chevelle is a 4.8 Liter LS with a 78mm turbo. The motor was torn down, inspected, cleaned up, and reassembled by the legendary John Schmitt. The stock block was stuffed with all the good stuff including a custom turbo cam. The stock heads were reworked and tweaked and an LS1 Camaro intake tops it all off. Precision Transmission in Woburn, Massachusetts accepted the challenge of building a Turbo 400 that could handle the nearly 700hp that Nikki is putting to the pavement while she whips around the Hurst Quicksilver shifter. A GM 10 bolt brings up the rear, filled with a Summit Racing Posi unit, upgraded axles, and 3.36 gear set. Getting the car going is certainly not an issue but bringing things to a halt presented its challenges until all four corners received a more capable disc brake setup. The mostly stock suspension received a once over and helps the car corner surprisingly well, keeping the Weld Wheels and BFG radial TA’s Continued Next Page

where they need to be. Overall, the car was a blast to drive, but if Nikki was going to use it as often as she planned to Papa Nick wanted it to be more reliable and predictable. Enter our good friends at K&E Engineering in Tewksbury, Massachusetts. Over my eleven and a half years at Motorhead Magazine and with decades in the car scene, I have learned to be very selective in who I refer people to for any type of automotive work, especially performance stuff. I can honestly say that since Nick Cincotti introduced me to Evan Jaffe and Kevin Fonseca at K&E Engineering they have gained my confidence as top-notch performers in their field. Anyone I have sent to this shop has been completely satisfied and has become a lifelong customer. So, when it came time to take the plunge to EFI I knew Nikki’s Chevelle was heading their way. The setup of choice for this build was Holley’s Terminator X Management system. After K&E did their thing to meticulously wire it up, John Schmitt and Carlos Yanes worked their tuning magic. With Schmitt in the cockpit and Yanes working remotely, the final touches delivered impressive drivability, excellent around town manners, and the ability to destroy everyone, including George Roberts, when Nikki gets on it.

With such an impressive ride, Nikki wanted it to stand out from the crowd. Loud flashy colors could have accomplished that goal but she wanted to be a little different. After some serious thought and a brainstorming session with dear old Dad, the answer was staring her right in the face, literally, on the TV screen. She was going to transform the Chevelle into a movie tribute car from Talladega Nights “The Ballad of Ricky Bobby”. Luckily for Nikki her sister’s boyfriend, Nick Bordenca, is the owner and chief technician at Primo Printworks, specializing in vehicle wraps and other high-end automotive services. Nick got to work with dozens of photos of the movie car to make sure he created an exact replica for Nikki to roll with. The finished product is quite impressive and gets attention everywhere she goes, especially at stop lights where Nikki makes short work of the competition, reminding all those lesser folks that “If you ain’t first, you’re last”.

Hello Motorheads!! My name is Mark LaBranche and I’m a huge fan of all things Drag Racing. My first time at New England Dragway was back in 1968, when I was brought to the Funny Car Nationals Event. Well, little did I know that my brother was setting the hook in me, and I would forever be changed by this little adventure. I have said this from that day forward and will keep saying it until the day I pass; I LOVE NEW ENGLAND DRAGWAY. I have been very lucky to have spent most of my weekends in$150.00 my life up there and will always appreciate those times. I have met so many people who have become$125.00 like

One particular day that stands out for me was on Wednesday night August 25, 2021 when I was taking pictures for PRIMETIME Video and Photo. This light green Chevy S10 pickup came to the water box. It was trying to do a burnout, but the tires just did not want to break loose. I looked up to see the driver and all I saw was this little helmet just barely sticking over the dashboard. The water box personnel were trying to help them by giving them the thumbs up to try to tell them more gas. They tried directing them back into the box to try it again but it was not going to happen, so they moved up to the starting line and went down the track. They did 16.58 for the ET. About an hour later I saw the same truck come up and someone different was driving the truck. This time they did a good burnout and went down the track, finishing with a 12. 70 E.T. The track then took a short break and I had to go look for this truck, I wanted to try and help them out if I could. That is what we all do at the track, we are a family, and we help each other out.

I found the truck and I introduced myself to the drivers, David and Avril. We started to talk and got to know each other. There was something different, something special with these two. I had no clue but these two where like high school kids. Smiling at each other and just goofing off together. I asked if they were having a good time and if they needed any help with the truck. I mentioned that I saw the first time that it did not do the burn out and if everything was ok. They started to laugh and explained to me that it was Avril’s first time in a drag truck, and she did not have a clue what to do. David and I kind of explained it to her and they were going to let the truck cool down for another run. David and Avril again started smiling and goofing off again. I asked should I Continued Next Page


D Honeymoon know something; I feel like there is something I am missing here? They both started to tell me that this is part of their HONEYMOON. I said come on, you are kidding me right. They said nope, we were both in a long-term marriage and both of their partners decided to move on. Well, my jaw hit the hot top, I never heard that before. They started to tell me about the incredible journey they were on together. They were both single for about a decade. They met at a dinner/dance in September of 2018. Their parents had extra tickets and somehow, they both went to the right place at the right time. Dave’s aunt was Avril’s mother’s best friend. WHAT are odds of that happening right? Come

to find out they live 2.5 miles away from each other in the same town. Are you getting the picture now? At the end of the night David was pretty much hooked. He loved the curly hair, the easy smile, and Avril’s tattoo. David asked Avril’s mother for her phone number. They went out on a date to the movies and continued to get to know each other better. David invited Avril over for Thanksgiving and things kept going well. One night Avril asked to brush David’s ponytail then put the elastic from his ponytail on her left ring finger. Avril did not take it off until February when he said, “I don’t want you to be my girlfriend anymore, I want you to be my wife.” That is when David gave Avril the ring. They got married August of 2019. Avril wanted to surprise David with a special wedding, a theme wedding. There theme was and still is:

Give a man a car and he’ll be happy for a day. Give a man a woman and he’ll be happy for a night. Give a man a woman who loves cars and he’ll be happy for life.

Avril went all in on the Gearhead wedding idea, little gas pumps for the center piece, cardboard cars filled with candy, all kinds of cool car stuff. After the wedding they took a horseback ride to get a coffee, in their wedding attire and did not have a worry in the world. They were never concerned with having the big Wedding and huge Tropical honeymoon. I asked why and they said we don’t need that, we got each other. They worked second shift jobs, not much time off, and they just wanted to be together. One would think this is a dream come true with a fairy tale ending but shortly after David started to get bad headaches, the type that you need to just sit down in a dark room and try to get things together. The headaches got stronger and more frequent. They went to the doctors and David had a Pituitary tumor at the base of his brain. They were not even married a month yet and were faced with this. Ironically the medicine that they gave David to shrink the tumor made it triple in size. David then got surgery and took a turn for the better. Fast Forward to tonight where cares and concerns floated away like tire smoke and they were ready to have back at it. We headed to the staging lanes. The second run for Avril did not happen because the transmission blanket was hanging down to low, we fixed that and David went up for his next run. David did a blast down the quarter mile, but the transmission line blew off and leaked the entire quarter mile. We got the truck and the trailer and went to the top end and got the truck. Both were bummed out. David and I crawled under the truck and were expecting a blown transmission. The racing GODS above granted them some luck tonight. It was a transmission line clamp that blew off the trans cooler under the bed in the back of the truck. Needless to say, they were smiling again. I asked if they needed anything or if I could go get some parts. They said no and they would clean it tonight in the hotel parking lot and get the clamps they needed. We bid each other farewell and I said how great it was to meet you both and sorry it ended this way. We all agreed that we hope to see each other again soon. David and Avril said definitely, and that they will be back Friday night. They did, in fact, come back Friday night and both did their personal best times. This was the best honeymoon imaginable for them and it was at NEW ENGLAND DRAGWAY. This will be something that I will never forget, especially forming a new lifelong friendship with such great people. I also will continue to say pray for them and hope that the cancer does not come back. God Bless you Avril and David and welcome to our racing family!!!

the iconic Cougar insignia on both driver and passenger side. The interior features unique huntsman cloth seating with strapping, custom door panels and tiffany carpeting. This package mimics the Lincoln Mark V designer series at a much more reasonable cost. The option was found in the more

expensive XR-7 models in 1978. “This has been a holy grail car for me, as I’ve chased down many like these over the years since seeing these cars on the road as a kid, with my dad having driven a new silver 1977 Cougar which sadly had been totaled soon after it was new. I remember that car well with a smooth ride, ice cold AC, and great looks.” After seeing a Midnight Blue/ Chamois decor edition Cougar XR-7 on the road, similar to the one he currently owns, Steven was obsessed. “A friend in High School drove a Cat exactly like this one, and I even tried to buy it from his mom. She thought I was nuts and sent me away. I knew I had to own one at some point, and now I do! I’ve always loved the 70’s land yachts, particularly the Ford product variety.” The 5th generation 1977-79 Mercury Cougars always stood out to him. “It has striking bold looks that cannot be ignored no matter how hard you try. It’s comfort cruise, it’s in your face, and the experience of enjoying the smooth ride and the by gone era of finger touch steering while floating over the road as if on a couch, is an experience that stays with you.” Steven chased down many others. “The first one I bought around 2002 was a White/Maroon ‘78 XR-7, then a black ‘79 XR7. Other yachts included a ‘79 T-bird, a ‘76 T-bird, and a ‘72 Mark IV among others. He acquired The Big Cat from a post by a fellow member of a Mercury Cougar appreciation group. “I followed up with the owner who was located in Continued Next Page


Bucks Country, PA.” Steven knew he had to take the two plus hour journey to see this Cougar, dragging along his friend, Jim. “It appeared to be what I’ve been searching for!” The Mercury was stored in a garage for close to 15 years by the previous owner, and the Cat appeared remarkably well preserved. Occasionally, that owner would run it, and drive around locally. While the Mercury was in for servicing over the years, the car clearly needed a new curator. It ran very rough and had rotted brake lines. “I arranged to have the car flat bedded to its new home, where I began the

tank and sending unit; passenger side power window motor changed; and windshield washer switch replaced (very hard to find the correct one) The Big Cat gets lots of thumbs-ups, nods, and smiles. “Older folks will sometimes stop me to discuss the car and reminisce.” This car exudes all the funk and awesomeness of the late 1970s. What it lacks in performance due to malaise era guidelines, it makes up for in flash and style, especially in this color combination. While driving, only ‘70s tunes play on the stock AM / FM quadrophonic 8-track player through a cig lighter Bluetooth adapter Steven connected wirelessly played through his Iphone’s satellite radio account. The sound from the stock speakers is exactly as it was when new. “It really brings you back to a very unique time in history and reminds me a lot of how it felt to be a kid. It’s a total time warp!” “Currently this Mercury is used regularly, on

restoration process of getting the Big Cat back on the road again.” This was a special Cat. The previous owner inherited it from his parents

errands, to car shows and cruise nights and out for ice cream with my wife Joanna and my 5-year old son, Nigel. I’m very proud to have been able to save this Cougar and plan to enjoy it for many years to come.” In 1978, about 166,000 XR-7s were produced. Sadly, many have fallen prey to the crusher. Who knows how many even remain out there!? “Of the small yet growing amounts of fans of these cars, it’s up to us to restore, drive, and save as many of these increasingly rare classics as we can!”

THIS CAR IS UNDER ATTACK. THE WATER IN YOUR COOLANT IS RUTHLESS.

Fight boilover and corrosion with the only waterless coolant. The water in your coolant is your engine’s worst enemy. It lurks in your engine’s cooling system, waiting to boil, expand and build pressure. Causing boilover, bursting hoses and corroding your engine’s components. That’s why Evans is 100% waterless.

Evans Waterless Coolant + Griffin Radiator = A Perfect Match Since 1981, Griffin has been dedicated to leadership in the design and manufacture of the very best high-performance aluminum heat exchangers in the automotive industry. A Griffin radiator is not a one size fits all, off-theshelf product, but is performance matched for optimum cooling and built for your specific industrial or automotive application.

system configurations.

Will I Need to Use a Chemical Flush or will Prep Fluid be Sufficient? For neglected cooling systems or high mileage vehicles, a chemical flush may be necessary to remove rust, scale and residue prior to using Prep or Evans Coolant. Evans offers a Cooling System Flush for neglected cooling systems.

How Much Coolant will I Need? EWC is a stand-alone coolant, not to be mixed with water. You need enough to completely fill the entire cooling system. Check your owner’s manual for coolant capacity

Will Evans Lower my Engine Temperature?

Evans Waterless Coolants stand out in the world of engine coolant/antifreeze formulations where almost all of them are a 50/50 mix of ethylene glycol and water. For over a century, automobile owners, particularly collectors of vintage vehicles, have battled the effects of water in the cooling system. Evans avoids the problems caused by water such as corrosion, electrolysis, and scale. In addition, Evans high boiling point of 375°F means it will not form vapor, build pressure, or boil over. Evans is used by a growing number of car museums and prominent collectors to protect against metal degradation and ensure long term preservation.

The Benefits of Using Evans Waterless Coolant

Typically, no. Vehicles running under normal operating conditions should show either no change or a slight increase in temperature, but that will depend on cooling system configuration as well as driving conditions. Certain systems that use incompatible components, have an existing problem, or are poorly designed could run hotter. The ability to lower the operating temperature depends on multiple factors, primarily coolant flow volume and air flow temperature. For example, multi-pass radiators will result in higher temperatures due to decreased coolant flow volume vs. large tube multi row radiators that improve coolant flow. Different thermostats may increase flow volume because of less restriction. Water-based coolant boils at a temperature only slightly higher than the operating temperature of the coolant. Localized boiling releases water vapor that can only condense into coolant that is colder than the boiling point of water. Vapor that doesn’t condense occupies a volume that displaces liquid coolant. Hot engine metal, insulated

Evans high boiling point virtually eliminates vapor in the engine, ensuring constant liquid-to-metal contact. Evans draws more heat from the engine, which may lead to slightly higher coolant gauge temperatures (by 10 to 20 degrees). Heat management is improved as engine component temperatures are kept under control. Lower Pressure: Evans’ lower system pressure reduces stress on hoses, seals and gaskets. Corrosion Protection: The absence of water also means no corrosion and electrolysis. This is particularly important for cars stored for long periods of time.

Why Griffin Recommends Evans Coolant Evans Waterless Coolant provides distinct advantages over traditional water-based coolant. The absence of water avoids the formation of vapor, high pressure and boil-over, and prevents corrosion and electrolysis. Evans’ high boiling point and lower freeze point allow a wider and safer operating temperature range. The benefits derived from Evans can be achieved in most vehicle applications and engine types, although Evans’ performance may vary depending on cooling

by water vapor, becomes an engine “hot spot” that can cause pre-ignition and detonation. Evans’ high boiling point means it will not turn to vapor.

TRI TRACK OPEN MODIFIED SERIES ADJUSTS STARTING LINEUP PROCEDURES By SOUZA MEDIA / KYLE SOUZA

session, cars will have to run that same set of tires in the heat races.

SEEKONK, Mass. -- Tri Track Open Modified Series officials announced on Friday that the series will be adjusting starting lineup procedures for qualifying heats beginning with the final event of the season at Seekonk Speedway on October 23.

Teams will be grouped by practice speed and sent out on the track during the scuff session in groups of five. They will then be part of a four-lap green flag session, with the fastest individual lap time from the four-lap session for each car determining the heat race lineup. Once the lineups are set, the top-four from each heat will be inverted to make the starting grid.

Tri Track will eliminate the blind draw that drivers have been doing to set the lineup -- and instead will base qualifying starting spots off a final scuff session that will occur on race day. In between practice and heat races, all cars will be required to go over the scales in the reserve order of practice speeds, with the slowest cars first. This means that all cars must be heat race legal -- including having their heat race tires marked, and on the car. Following this final scuff

Exact breakdowns are dependent on the number of cars entered to race. The below document will provide specifics. TRI TRACK NEW STARTING PROCEDURES Continued Next Page

Proposed Tri-Track Open Modified Series Qualifying Procedure

“We’re making this adjustment in an effort to remove the element of luck involved with the blind draws we have been doing,” Ed Bennett, Managing Partner of the Tri Track Open Modified Series, said. “We’re looking forward to seeing how this change works out and we think it will be beneficial for all involved.”

After the heat races are lined up and complete, consi race lineups will be straight-up off the heat finishes, as usual. The feature lineup will be inverted. Just before the start of the race, a wheel will be spun at the start/finish line to determine the number of cars that will be inverted for the start of the race. The number will range from zero through 12. It could be a straight-up start, a 12-car invert, or anything in between.

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.

Etch watches the police officers eating their free pastries and drinking their free coffee that he paid for with his own credit card from the tree line at the end of the diner parking lot. He just smiles and keeps waiting to see what they do next. From what he sees the officers are in no hurry to go find out where he is but Etch knows that they know that he is somewhere nearby. The endless game of cat and mouse is taking a whole new direction and the police officers know that and so does Etch. The police officers eventually finish their breakfast

and begin to exit the diner. One of them stops and pays for the spilled coffees and crushed pastries the other patrons were drinking and eating near the front windows when they got up from their chairs to search for the Outlaw GTO and it’s driver earlier outside the diner. He tells the patrons, before he exits the diner door behind his other police officers, that they are sorry for the inconvenience and that their breakfast is on them. The officers search around the parking lot for the Outlaw GTO and Etch but see no signs of the wanted muscle car and

NJ TO FL CAT By ROB MAY and STEVE SAPOLIS More Cats for Motorhead! This East Coast Cat was built in Lorain, Ohio and shipped to Newark, New Jersey where it was purchased by its original owner. The 1979 Cougar XR-7 lived in Jersey until the late 90’s and became a Florida transplant when the owner retired and moved to Florida. Unfortunately, the owner passed away in 2011, and the Mercury sat in the garage until June 2020 when Steve Sapolis purchased it. Currently, the Cougar makes its den in Longwood, Florida.

Steve found his Cat on Facebook Marketplace while looking for an older car to purchase. “I was actually looking for a ’77 – ‘79 Thunderbird. The ad said 1979 Mercury Cougar XR-7 63,000 miles which caught my eye right away.” The 1977-1979 Cougars are the 5th generation. The son of the late owner was selling the car for his mother as she sold the house. He managed to get the car running to drive it to a friend’s house. “I went over there, looked at the Mercury, and drove it around the block (not knowing the car had sat for 9 years).” Although it started right up, it was Continued Next Page

running rough. The back brakes were basically locked-up, but the Cougar did move. “After test driving, I almost didn’t buy it because I wasn’t looking for a project car.” A week later, Steve decided to buy the Mercury. “After I purchased this car, I rebuilt the carburetor, put in a new gas tank, changed the oil, installed all new brakes, and swapped the spark plugs. Believe it or not, the Cougar still had the original spark plug wires from the factory which I changed. I will be putting dual exhaust on with factory mufflers as it’s not the kind of Cat that needs to be loud, just needs to breathe a little better. It really didn’t take much to get the XR-7 road worthy again.” The Cougar cleaned up well. The Mercury has had a repaint sometime in its 42 years, and it does need the vinyl top replaced. Steve takes his Cat to shows in Central Florida, and it gets lots of attention.
