> I first met Ronald Reagan in the mid-'50s. Pete had asked his studio to send some actor out to help publicize a hot rod show, and they happened to send Reagan. I shot some photos of him in Western garb, pretending to read our magazines. The next time was 1992. We went up to his ranch above Santa Barbara to present the former President with a Colt .45, like the one he'd used in the movies. I showed him a print of my 1958 PR photo of him holding a Motor Trend, which he signed for me. We...

Fast Lsxr Vs Mast M0t0rsp0rts Singleplane

Forthose who prefer EFI, we ran the Mast-headed combo with a FAST LSXR intake so we could see how the numbers stacked up against the carbureted combo. It produced another example of why we like to include dyno graphs instead of just peak power numbers. From a peak standpoint, the Mast single-plane intake produced 761 hp, significantly higherthan 732 hp with the FAST LSXR. On the surface, this seems to illustrate the superiority ofthe carbureted intake, but if you look closely, you will see that...

Fast Lsxr102mm Intake Manifold For Ls3 Engines

Fuel Air Spark Technology 877 334-8355 FAST and Racing Head Service teamed up to improve GM's LS3 engine, and the LSXR 102mm polymer intake manifold is the result. When combined with a FAST Big Mouth 102mm throttle-body, the LS3 gains 14-plus horsepower and 11 Ib-ft of torque. This intake features a three-piece modular design that allows easy removal and porting of the runners. Extensive testing led to a runner design that is longer and less restrictive, yielding both torque and power gains...

Fuel In The Crankcase

I have a '23 T-bucket with a 215ci Buick out of a '63 Buick Special. The engine supposedly has 10.25 1 compression and is factory rated at 200 hp, but it's been upgraded with a regrind by Isk-enderian on the cam and a 600-cfm Edelbrock carb. I bought the project already set up with the engine installed, then fabricated some headers, did the wiring, installed the radiator, and so on. Now that the engine is running, it is getting raw fuel in the crankcase. I am thinking that maybe the fuel tank...

Graphite Lube In A Spray

Lubricating moving parts under the hood or on the chassis of your hot rod usually results in dirt and grime being attracted to the parts by the grease or oil you use. That's the case with most lubricants that are applied wet and stay wet. Slip Plate is a dry-film lubricant that contains a healthy amount of graphite, which is hydrophobic. That means it resists moisture and will keep on lubricating whatever metal parts you apply it to even if you drive through rain, snow, or mud. Since the...

How To Hotrod Any Vintage Engine

Back in the day, hot rodders didn't have an enormous speed parts industry, and the Internet was more science fiction than Dick Tracy's watch phone, so they had to make their cars faster with their ingenuity and sweat. You might have to as well if you have an oddball engine that nobody makes parts for. Next month, Marian Davis goes into detail about how to hot-rod any engine and stuff you need to think about in the process. Included in the story is some information on Pete Aardema's various...

Raybestos Brakes and Hollywood Hot Rods Conspired To Build This Roadster Pickup With a Very Retro Looking Version of the '11 Ford 5.0 Engine, and No foolin', this is a 5.0L Ti-VCT Coyote V8 out of a new Mustang, as worked over by Hollywood Hot Rods. If you look closely you can see that the lakes-style headers are tri-Ys that's what the new Mustang has so HHR replicated it in the vintage headers using Megs components. Check out the custom valve cover script, a nod to the unofficial internal name...

Stock Gmc Blower Revisited

In reading your answer to Jeff Kopis about the suitability of installing a used, stock GMC 3-21 supercharger from a two-stroke diesel engine on a street gasoline-powered hot rod (Pit Stop, Nov. '10, Stock GMC Blower),the implication that the superchargers on the Jimmy diesel engines scavenge exhaust led me to believe that the exhaust actually goes through the supercharger, when in fact it pushes the exhaust out via bottom ports in the cylinder wall when the piston is at or near bottom dead...

Three Deuces Made Right

My swap meet purchase of three rebuilt Rochester 2GC carbs, an Edelbrock manifold, Speedway progressive linkage, and a Mallory dual-point distributor is not cutting it. The lead and rear carbs, although refurbished, still have the chokes in place. What mods need to be done to make the carbs pure dumpers, and is this a job a novice could tackle I have very little money to pay a rebuilder, and the wife and kids were hocked to buy the setup to begin with. I feel confident the upgraded 32...

The Materfamilias

This months issue has a story about Leah Pruett-Leduc, the amazing young Nostalgia Funny Car champ. It's difficult for any form of media to cover today's many females in drag racing without drawing lines back to Shirley Muldowney. While that connection may grow tiresome for the women in question, there's no doubt that Shirley blazed their trail. And so here goes with a little more retrospective to add to HOT ROD's revealing interview with Shirley in the Apr. '09 issue. The inset photo on the...

Ford Racing Fights Back

We knew our pals in the Ford camp would have somethingto say about ourdeclaring the LS as the hottest thing going. Ford Racing's Jesse Kershaw argued against the LS and in favor of the new 5.0L four-cam engine in the Mustang, citing its lower weight 400 pounds , better looks, more efficient factory power compared with displacement 412 hp from only 302 ci , and the high-tech nature of its variable cam timingthat boosts torque, making it feel like a bigger engine. Jesse says, Twin variable...

Ashley Force Funny Car Destruction

Ashley Force must hate Maple Grove Raceway Reading, Pennsylvania . She crashed hard there in 2009 and lost two bodies in 2010, one from this big engine explosion. Spectator and HOT ROD reader Charley Powell caught the photo with his Canon Tli and a 250mm lens from the cheap seats. Check out how the violence lifted the rear tires off the ground. Charley said, The concussion made me forget to hold down the shutter for a shot sequence because I wanted to see it firsthand, not through the lens. For...
