Talking GM High Tech Performance Feature on Newsstands!!

Big news and I'm incredibly excited to post this. I knew this was coming out for some time but I got confirmation that it is on the newsstands.



Scott Parker from GMHTP came up from Florida to shoot the car on what appeared to be the hottest day of the year. The feature article came out great and I can't give enough thanks to those who helped me build the car.

Impressive, but going 244mph in the catfish just once again proves LS1 > LT1.
Sorry pal.

W00terz. Can't wait to read it. Did I get an honorable mention for my extensive wrench time, working long hours & solo into the wee hours of the night during this rodeo?

Despite engine under hood, third gens don't make it in GMHT anymore unless it is a big $$$ build.

Congrats resident ginger! Pretty sweet! Now to find GMHTP on the stands since I just signed up for the subscription last month so it probably will be the next edition.

A car that moves and is finished probably helps too
