Not everyone who tries to make the transition from racing to building and selling car parts does so successfully. It takes a mix of technical know-how and business savvy to pull it off.
Heidts Automotive Group has been helping musclecars and street rods handle the bumps in the road, and helping them handle the autocross tracks with IFS and IRS systems. We visited their facility to see what they do, and how they do it. Take a look inside.

Chevrolet’s Head of Consumer Affairs, James Bell, hit the automotive journalist talk circuit with a vengeance, and we had a chance to ask him some questions about the announcement of the Stingray’s estimated fuel economy, what the LT1 will mean for Chevy as a whole, and the future of the C7 Corvette.

Although the winter season means no racing and rarely driving your performance car here in Colorado, Dragon Pro Street Engineering, a local performance shop, is changing the idea of a miserable winter into an exciting time to modify cars for the good weather to come. But this isn’t just your ordinary shop…

Every year on the Friday following Thanksgiving, millions of people in this country camp out in front of their local department store or mall to take advantage of the apparent “good deals” to kick off the Christmas shopping season. Since we’re not interested in it, we decided to shoot this killer Z06 instead.

When it comes to Corvettes, you can’t go wrong with the classic C1 body style, especially if you ask Corvette owner Dick Brazzell from Arvada, Colorado. This enthusiast has owned a couple Vettes in his time but always favored the 1959-1960 first-gens, and his ’60 show car is a testament to why.
