Here is a report on how looking back will affect the future of hot rodding); Salt Flat Rats (We first eyed the genuine hot rods of the Salt Lake City Throttlers at Speed Week last year. It was enough to make us chase them down for a story on these exemplary retro rods); The Cover Willys (It's been said that the Stone-Woods swindler is the most recognizable car in drag racing history, and in this story, we said it again. Maybe that's why it has been featured twice now) Hot Rod Garage - Altered Wheelbase (This is kind of a "because we can" moment, as Magnante and Mr. Rich go Match Bashing again, mercilessly hacking an otherwise sano '64 Fairlane into a retro Funny Car); GM's Best V-8s Yet (With the creation of the 400hp LS2 and the 500hp LS7, it's hard to argue that pushrod technology is a loser.

Cover Stories - Baddest Camaro Ever! (Dan and R.J. Gottlieb's Big Red '69 Camaro is out of mothballs and ready to kick some Pro Touring tail.

It't doesn't have garish sponser stickers covering every square inch); Quickest Street Viper (Heffner's Performance built this twin-turbo Viper that runs mid-8s at 155mph with a stock six-speed, IRS and air conditioning. Pump Gas Drags, anyone) Hot Rod Garage - How To Buy EFI (When it comes time to replace your trusty old carburetor with modern electronics, here are the places to turn); The New F.A.S.T.

How about you?); Bench Racing (What's hot, and not, according to Hot Rod readers); Where It All Began (Are today's '50s rat rods real, or are they better than real?); Roddin' At Random (Missed the new-car shows? Here ya go); Test And Tune (New stuff you need for your hot rod); Pit Stop (Junkyard disc swaps and other things that make Marian quiver); Finish Line (A real Boss 429 from the ashes) Feature Stories - Real Rods And Customs (Oakland may be dead, but it's still a good time as suede goes legit at the San Francisco Rod, Custom and Motorcycle show); The Goldenrod (With help from the Henry Ford Museum and the American Government, the Summers Brother's Goldenrod LSR car is about to get the love it deserves)

Cover Section - Long Live Musclecars (It's true that most pre-'72 musclecars getting more expensive, but hot rodders and the aftermarket are ensuring that they will never die.), 5 Million Dollar Baby (Would you spend several million dollars for an old Plymouth? Bill Wiemann did, several times, and has the somewhat dubious honor of owning and selling the most valuable musclecars in history.) Hot Rod Garage - Painting The Goat (The guys in suits just told us we have to give away our project G-Force GTO, so we got busy and painted it in the scheme that Hot Rod readers voted for. It also got wheels and tires. You could end up owning it.), Portable Dragstrip (We put Telsa Electronic's affordable little G-Tech RR gizmo to the test and it is surprisingly accurate. It'll never replace the dragstrip, but is't better than driving two hours to inhale dust in Palmdale.), Carb Thingy (Aeromotive's new sensor ducks into the carburetor float bowl and reads how much fuel is present, which makes a big difference in the air/fuel ratio.

August
Cover Section - Hemi! (Magnante gets to do the story he was born for all about the culture and history of the Chrysler Hemi.

Check out the story behind the man and the machine.), 5.7L Crate Hemi Test (Hot Rod gets the first Crate Hemi from Mopar Performance and chucks it on the dyno.

Hot Rod Garage - Go Fast On Pump Gas (You've seen guys run 8's at the Pump Gas Drags and not doubt wondered how they could thrive with 13.0:1 compression on 93-octane fuel. Marian goes deep with the experts to find out how they do it, and how you can too.), Return of Rhoads (Remember the Rhoads lifters from way back in the '80s? They're back!

Look here and you'll find out.), Los Gringos Rapidos (In the early '50s, the best racers in the world and a couple of hot rodders went down to Mexico to compete in La Carrera Panamericana. It was sweet.) Departments - Starting Line (Drag Week. It's not just for race cars.

Check out what we learned.), Useful Aero Tricks (Aerodynamics are a weird science, but Marlan explains how the magic tricks are performed and unearths some practical tips on how you can make your car as swoopy as possible for max speed.), Diesel Power (No joke, your musclecar is in grave danger of being humiliated by a big-black-smoke-belching truck. Here are the players and what they're doing to go stupid fast with diesels. Consider yourself warned.) Feature Stories - Pink On The Inside (Ed Pink has built over 5,000 engines in his lilfe.

Dave Wallace tells you all about the Old Master.), Top Speed Shootout (Hot Rod's first-ever Top Speed Shootout got rained on, but we still had some really fast cars run for the jackets.

Beaters all, but we say that with respect.)

It made decent power, but not without just a hint of assembly difficulty.), 480 HP 5.7 Crate Hemi (In the August issue, Dulcich ran our new Mopar Performance 5.7L crate hemi on the dyno and made 400hp. This month, it gained 80 horses with nothing more than a cam swap. Also check out the interesting information gained by running three intake manifolds across this engine.), 427 Ford Small-Block (We've heard it said that "FE" stands for "Finally Extinct". While there is no shortage of folks who would argue against that, it's hard to deal with a big, heavy engine when you compare it to this lithe, small-block of the same displacement. Watch for it in our Factory Five Cobra kit in the next few issues.) Feature Stories - White Lightning (Many of the early NASCAR stars were just Carolina moonshine runners with nothing to do on the weekends. Here's the true story of the real deal and his liquor haulers.), Smokey's Stocker (GM Performance Division re-creates the '55 Chevy NASCAR Stock Car built by Smokey Yunick and driven to victory by Herb Thomas.), The King's Chariot (Pat McKinney lovingly restored Richard Petty's '71 Road Runner NASCAR stocker to it's former glory.
