It seems like a simple question. How much power is too much? Ask muscle car guys that question and you’ll get funny looks. Too much power? Does that even exist?
Sure, it seems simple. But it isn’t.
This past weekend was the annual Portland Roadster Show — a show that’s been held in the Rose City since 1955. This year, ACC’s booth included our Dodge 440 sedan. I drove the car to the event from our offices, which Read More
The Dodge we bought at Mecum Kissimmee has been quietly parked at ACC HQ for a few weeks now, taken out only a few times to scare a couple of writers and staffers interested in the big Hemi. But since it’s going to be at our booth at this weekend’s Portland Roadster Show, I had a handful of technical and cosmetic things I needed to take care of, and a few rare sunny March Read More
Should I put an original ’72 cab back on my pieced-together 1972 work truck? That’s the question we’ve been kicking around the ACC office this past week.
About two years ago, I bought a 1972 Chevrolet Cheyenne Super 4×4. I was house shopping at the time. Since I grew up in a family that always had trucks around for hauling yard debris, picking up new appliances, and for serving as mobile work benches, I wasn’t about to jump into home Read More
It’s been a big couple of weeks for ACC. On Wednesday, we shipped our second issue to the press, complete with all of our 2012 Scottsdale coverage. I think it’s even better than our first issue – it includes a number of new features, including a poll of what our subscribers bought in Scottsdale and a look at some of the best junkyards in the U.S. Subscribers should see it in their mailboxes sometime around the end of the month.

The results were great news for the American car market, with a grand total of $184m sold at 6 auctions. And the biggest trend? American muscle values seem to be on the rise.
ACC’s staff and writers all Read More
The ACC crew’s boots are on the ground in Arizona, where it’s currently about 70 degrees and sunny. We left Portland this morning in the midst of a rare valley snow ‘event,’ which will likely only end up producing a few inches of the white stuff – but it’ll shut the town down just the same. I love snow in the Portland area, so although the plane to Phoenix was a timely escape, I was a little sad Read More
My daughter Katie has been with us for six weeks now, and during that time, I’ve talked about my Camaro and its small back seat to just about anyone who’d listen. Sure, you could make a baby seat fit in the back, but getting it secured was tricky. And try doing it in a small parking spot in the rain, or in the dark. Unfortunately, although I’d loved my SS Camaro, its time had come, so I had to sell Read More
There are a lot of firsts in my life this week. We’re sending the very first issue of American Car Collector to the printers TODAY. If you’re already a subscriber to ACC or Corvette Market, you’ll see the issue in a couple of weeks. If you’re not a subscriber, click Read More
