Of all the hundreds of stories we’ve done over the years, this was and probably still is our favorite.  A little back story on the publishing of this one.  I had typed it out at the very last minute..first draft, one shot, no time for editing before it needed to hit the printer.  When the Bluelines came back for approval before final printing, I noticed that my Byline was missing.  Editor Gromer had decided that I had too many in that issue, so he scrubbed it.  It was pointless trying to argue or reason with the little fuck, so I quickly whipped up that nearly full page sidebar and slipped it in with our list of corrections and additions…along with my name.  EAD Cliff.

Full story below.

  • When this article was first published I read it to my friend Vincent, who happens to be blind but was born with a steering wheel in his hand like so many of us. Well, he was so inspired by Tony’s writing that he was able to talk one of our “die hard” Chevy guys into buying an ‘87 Type and has since turned it into a mid 10 second super quiet street car.
