It's Good to be the King

For some, doing stoplight burnouts is fun and that’s all they need, so the idea of 500HP is the absolute max. When you have a car that embarrasses Italian sports cars for fun, then 550HP might be your max. For others a 1000HP and beyond are “maybe” the max.

Dusk 'Til Drawn

Each day I’m confronted with the challenge of bringing unique ideas to a project, and in some cases, finding ways to stretch a budget, and draw in some wicked little details to set a car over the top. It’s a matter of using what’s there in front of you (and occasionally what doesn’t exist!) in a new or different way, and then getting it all to flow.

He Who Del't It

One of three things is probably happening about now: One, you’re curled up in the corner, rocking back and forth and mumbling something akin to, “Mommy, stop the bad man from hitting me with his words!” Two, the sudden gasp and spike in blood pressure has produced a pink froth in the corner of your mouth while you b*tchslap the keyboard like it owes you money as you wish death and pestilence on my manhood.

Today, we’ve set the Way back Machine all the way back to 1889, and the location is Paris, France. Now, I know you’re thinking, ” Why would a thread from a gearhead-oriented website reference a time and date from the late 1800s?” Be patient, it’ll all be clear in a minute.
