SP Rides: The Blessing

Mac had never, ever done an engine swap before…but that’s what it took. It was nerve-wracking to say the least.

SP Rides: Racing Rocket

While growing up in high school, Ryan Schuman’s first encounter as an enthusiast was with his friend’s 2006 STi. Every day after school, he’d spend cruising with his two best friends in that car.

SP Rides: Absolute Perfection

Jeremy Turner’s first experience as a young enthusiast was during his mid-20s after acquiring a 1967 Chevy Nova.  It was bored out 30 over and it was beautiful.  It was at this time that Turner fell in love with the American muscle car.

In many ways, enthusiast vehicles can represent something greater than the machinery that they’re made of.   For some, they are something more, an ideal or vision, or a remembrance for example.

Since a young age, Arvee Haduca, has been a bit of a mix. Growing up around an uncle who was into Vdubs, she had a knack for walking into a toy store and then walking out with both a Barbie and a Hot Wheels.

SP Rides: Absolutely Classic

Sometimes a tribute can mean just as much as the original…at least to Jarrod Silcox, the owner of this incredible 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Yenko.  Although it’s not a real Yenko Super Camaro, it’s essentially in-line with the spirit and a perfect example of a man who knows what he wants in a car.

SP Rides: The Flyin’ Falcon

Like many classic car enthusiasts, Roy Holmes was practically born into it.  His father did it all…drag racing, mechanic, welder.  He was one of the first in Norwalk, Ohio to go 8 or 9 seconds in a Camaro with all drum brakes.

SP Rides: The Big Bad Wolf

The 3rd Generation Focus RS is the car the US should have gotten all along.  For years, the US received a vehicle that could be considered subpar to the rest of its global counterparts.
