In the quest to give you an insiders view of what is going on behind the doors of the best builders and suppliers we cornered Lingenfelter Performance Engineering’s Mike Copeland to see what’s new and upcoming with LPE. Check it out here!
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.
With carbon fiber construction, LS7 power, and US design and construction, the Falcon F7 is a true American supercar on par with the best Europe has to offer. We got to spend some time with Falcon CEO Jeff Lemke and get the inside story behind this striking new exotic.
Kurt Urban has been the go-to guy for some of the most prominent LS builds known to mankind. We recently got him to slow down just long enough to give us some insight into where he’s been, and where he’s going next…

David Burroughs introduced judging against how original the car is, compared to when it left the factory. “Every Corvette left the factory as a Gold Certified car,” he told us recently.
Paul “Scooter” Brothers is the President and co-founder of COMP Cams and chairman-elect of the SEMA board of directors.
