The Car Craft Summer Nationals is all about variety, and we took some time away from our display in the Pro Builders Shootout to grab some snap shots of cool cars and trucks at the event.   Car Craft claimed over 6000 cars and 40,000 people attended the event, and we believe it!   


1966 Chevelle

There were many V8 Speed & Resto Shop customers and cars our crew had worked on at the 2014 Car Craft Street Machine Nationals in DuQuoin, IL over the past weekend.     Shown is the House Of Kolor TruBlue '66 Chevelle, a car that spent some time in our shop getting some mechanical maintenance, a new hood, and some other paint work.     Overall, there were at least 6 cars in the show that we've helped restore or maintain.     It was a fun event!

We stopped at MagnaFlow to check out a sweet '67 Nova built by Greening Auto Company on display at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas. MagnaFlow also released some new exhaust parts, including custom built headers! We also got to spend a few minutes with Miss MagnaFlow, Amanda Landry!


In this special three-part V8TV presentation, we traveled to Nashville Tennessee to cover the first annual Run To Music City pro touring event presented by Carbon Kustoms.  The Run To Music City (RTMC) combines a spirited driving cruise, autocross racing, high-speed driving, and car show events with tours of Advanced Plating, Greening Auto Company, and Hydratech breaking.   It's a great event for people who like to drive their cars in high-performance situations and have great friends along for the ride!

Holley Cruise 2008

Back in 2008, Holley threw a pre-Somernites Cruise party at their headquarters in Bowling Green, Kentucky.   Here's a few shots of some of the cars in attendance.
