Well, in photographs anyway. Nitro Magazine (France) and V8 Passion (French Canada) will be featuring the GTO-R. Our own Rocket Scherman lent the photographer a hand. Enjoy.

Mark your Calendars! Hot Rod Chassis & Cycle is once again abandoning all discretion in a sincere effort to spread Christmas cheer within the Hot Rod community. Please accept our invitation to join us after 7:00 pm on 16th of December for their annual holiday open house.
All of you Friday Night Adult Beverage regulars know the way, so do the SW Chicago HAMB and Eggers but just as a reminder here's where you need to be:
Hot Rod Chassis & Cycle
59 W. Factory Road
From WEST : Take 355 to North Ave, exit East. When you get to Addison Road (look for the Portillo's on the right), watch for the rail road tracks, then turn left (North). At the first light (Factory Road) turn left (west). We're the 3rd building on the left.
From EAST : Take 290/294 to Rt. 64 Exit (North Ave) and go WEST 3 miles. At Addison Road make a RIGHT and go North to the first signal (Factory Rd). Make a LEFT and it's the 3rd building on the left.
BYOB and a dish to pass. Children are welcome with adult supervision.
Casual or dress up, it's up to you. Hope to see you there!

Here is the take away card that Chad designed for the SEMA show featuring outstanding photography by our friend Robert McGaffin. All of the build partners are listed on the reverse side. The GTO will be in the Original Parts Group booth #24187 and the winner will be flown in to see it for the very first time.
Also be sure to visit RaybestosGarage.com for the final video interviews showing the finished car.

Jim Preibe wanted something different to drive around in in his gated community in Dallas. Something of a departure from the Ferrari's and Porsche's of his neighbors. We said, "we can help you with that." Nothing says different like a stroked and injected 427 SOHC motor. Enjoy.

Here are some pics from the first day of shooting for Hot Rod TV. Dennis the producer, and his crew were great to work with. They'll be back in April to film the final assembly. Having watched this show from their very first episode, it's crazy to think that we will be on it!
Here are pics of Kevin discussing the chassis, Josh Russell from Raybestos (a TV PRO after last year) getting interviewed, Chad's interview, the Hilborn injector stacks (is it a Road Racer or a Vintage Drag Car?!) and filming the Raybestos Nascar spec brakes on the Kobalt Toolbox.

We got a taste of Hollywood at the shop when we did a video shoot for the Raybestos Garage website about the build, put together by our friends at 426 Brand. They are a great crew to work with and made it all a good time in the process. Our good friend Josh Russell of Raybestos who is an old pro at the TV thing did a great job helping us with our scenes, and making us all laugh. But we have to wonder... how the hell did Boyd's crew get ANYTHING done during the filming of American Hot Rod?
