Goodguys Heartland Gallery

Fairly ordinary then, far from ordinary now: a 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 two-door hardtop.

Every summer, the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association stages about 20 annual street rod and custom car events at fairgrounds and other large venues across the country. These are sprawling, weekend-long gatherings that include attractions such as swap meets, manufacturer midways, live music, autocross competitions, and plenty of on-premises cruising. They draw huge numbers of participant vehicles and spectators—the larger events regularly surpass 4000 registered show cars.

How to Check Your Tire Pressure

Checking the tire pressure is one of the easiest and most-important maintenance items vehicle owners can perform themselves.

The expense of keeping good-condition tires on your car could as much as double if you fail to give the tires the love and attention they deserve.

Offered for only two years, the GMC Envoy XUV afforded owners an amazing amount of cargo-hauling flexibility, along with a slightly awkward profile.

To the uninitiated, that might not sound too odd, except that the roof didn’t retract back from over the passengers, sunroof style; it pulled into the center of the vehicle from over the cargo hold, creating what more or less amounted to a handy pickup bed.

Classic Firebird Ads

1980 Pontiac Firebird
