The battle between the EPA versus Vehicle enthusiasts continues: Non-road vehicles are at stake

By Tara Hurlin Cars are an enormous part of my life. They are my livelihood, my passion and my love. They give me joy, a reason to smile and an outlet when I need a break from day-to-day dramas. Nothing makes me giggle like hearing a car’s engine backfire or the blow-off valve flutter. And the EPA wants to take it all away. For those who haven’t “heard” from the…

Camo Cars

Hi, my name is Doni, and I’m a gear head. I am a bit crazy about motorized vehicles in general, but especially when I see one of those ‘camoflauged’ cars. You know the ones.. Wrapped in crazy stripes and the drivers drive weird so you can’t check them out too closely.  I’ve been catching glimpses of them around the M59 corridor lately, and it had me thinking: how much fun…

Ford GT350 Review

“It’s a great time to be a geek.” What? Geek? Geeks are people who are into the latest technology. The ones who love gadgets.  Jim Owens, of Ford Performance explains, “Today’s cars are amping up high performance like their 60’s muscle counterparts – but with the latest in safety and performance gadgets. When you grab one of these (GT350R) cars and misjudge a braking distance, these cars will stop! It’s…

Ride. Repair. Repeat. (Great Race 2014 – From Issue 12!)

by Tabetha Hammer Ride. Repair. Repeat. That’s the motto of the Hemming’s Motor News Great Race Presented by Hagerty – a nine day, 2,100+ mile time-speed-distance rally put on annually at the end of June by the Coker Group. More than 100 vintage vehicles, ranging from a 1915 Hudson Indy racer to a 1972 Corvette, started the race that began in Ogunquit, Maine. By the end, 97 were still running – many only after having several ‘repairs’ – to cross the finish line in The Village, Florida. The Great Race is the most bizarre, challenging yet exciting and addicting ‘Car Gal/Guy’ game you can play. For nine days, teams rally through the beautiful back roads of the great American countryside, living by the exact directions and speeds as set and given…
