With 2013 upon us, and more ahead of us than ever before, Andrew and I have once again taken the chance to look back on the past twelve months to see where we’ve come from and where the year has taken us.

There’s something special about classic cars. Their defined lines and established curves, strangely inviting, even to those who don’t know the difference between wheel and tire. Yet somehow, there’s a bond seemingly everyone shares over these few remaining pieces of history. It’s as though the presence of a classic car is enough for even the busiest of people to pause for a moment, if only to look and smile. But if they look twice, it’s only a matter of time before they ask.
For those of you who have been wanting a update on Rusty, Mike put together some quick footage. While it’s not too revealing, the details of the build will be well worth the wait.

To say there’s a gap between our generation of “car guys” and the last is an understatement. There’s an unquantifiable list of reasons why that gap exists, far more than just “age”. There really aren’t many guys above 25-30 who find themselves dropping their cars as far as possible and stretching their tires to fit wheels that our fathers would tell us simply “don’t fit”.
