From Ashes to Glory
One SVTP Member’s quest to rebuild a legend.
Few things automotive related are sadder than seeing a once great vehicle resigned to life of near DD-level mediocrity after a minor fender-bender. That was situation in which SVTP Member Mike93SVT found his project 2010 Shelby GT500 Mustang. Not satisfied to see a such potential wasted Mike bough the car and began the painstaking process of resto-modding the SVT to better than new condition.
Performance on Display
SVTP wraps up its coverage of PRI 2016.
PRI 2016 was chock full of go-fast goodies, and it’s safe to say that 2017 should be a pretty fruitful year for gearheads. Our friends at Race Star are introducing a fantastic looking set one-piece forged wheels, and BMR is entering a new market with their Fox-Body rear lower control arms. To cap it off Watson racing has a slew of new race parts aimed at the 1/4 mile crowd.
Race Parts Wonderland
SVTP takes you inside the best show of the year.
If SEMA has become a car show then PRI is definitely a car-parts-show. The annual Performance Racing Industry Tradeshow is easily one of my favorite events on the calendar. There you will find everything from hard-core racing parts, to blowers, to exhaust, to safety equipment, to machine tools, to celebrities. If you love go-fast parts and turning wrenches then this is the place for you.

I love the idea on which the SEMA Show is founded. At its purest form SEMA is not a car show; it is a car parts show. At least that’s what it’s supposed to be. Somewhere along the way the focus of the show seems to have shifted to seeing who can do the flashiest build. While that’s plenty of fun in its own right I still like to dig in and see the latest and greatest the manufacturers are offering up.

We’ve long known that the aftermarket loves when a new Mustang platform is released. To them it represent an opportunity to make their mark on a car that is as much a part of American automotive history as any current production model. So to no one’s surprise it’s almost a guarantee that there will be hundreds of everyone’s favorite Pony car on display at the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas.
