Automotive journalist, author of literally hundreds of books, former director of the NHRA Motorsports and World of Speed Museums and all-around fascinating guy and friend of the Gearheads, Tony Thacker stops by. We talk about the wild and crazy 1970’s car mags, trading cookies for access to the Ferrari plant and design studio, and make some Monty Python references, too.
The Round Six Podcast is taking you deep inside of SEMA Show 2018. We’re also taking you deep beneath the cover of some of the coolest vehicles making their debut on the show floor with exclusive build and behind-the-scenes coverage. We have access to build pics, stories, interviews and more, like this 1976 GMC Indy tribute truck by Joe Yezzi. See it first right here!
While collecting parts for a prior Z/28 Camaro project, Chip Foose stumbled across a rare 302ci engine out of a 1967 Z/28. He thought it would be really cool to find a 1967 Chevy short bed pickup and then do something that the factory designers should have done back in 1967. How about combining the body of a C-10 with the drivetrain of a Z/28, and then sprinkle some first-generation Camaro bits into the mix? And when you’re done, call it a C/28.
Part four of Project White Trash deals with upgrading the front suspension from 8-lug to 5-lug using a donor 1979 Chevy Suburban. The modification is very inexpensive and easy to do, and is a great option for anyone building a 1960 to 1966 Chevy or GMC truck on a budget.
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.
