SVT_Troy’s Terminator Build

Spring Fever

Everyone loves a fresh round of mods.

By SID297

Few things put a smile on my face like amassing a pile of hi-po parts and digging deep into a round of mods.  While it can be plenty of fun to install one modification at a time, there’s nothing like blowing a car apart and essentially putting a new car back together thanks to a bunch of shiny new goodies.  It would seem that SVTP Member SVT_Troy (“Troy”) feels the same way, and his Terminator is all the more better for it.

Kid’s love for SVT runs deep.

By SID297

If you’re a ‘car guy’ now, chances are you were a ‘car kid’ once-upon-a-time.  You probably even remember a significant car in your early life that helped shape your current automotive fashion.  Chances are it was your Dad’s, Grandfather’s, Uncle’s, or some other family-member’s pride and joy.  Well for SVTP Member KilledbyKenne (”Justin’s”) 4-year old son Lukas, dad certainly had the right car to kick off an automotive addiction.

Behind the Scenes: The Finance Department

Dollars and Cents

The secrets behind auto financing.

By 13COBRA

Every dealership has a finance department; some are made up of a single individual, while others have a director or directors with several producers under each. Have you ever wondered why you are more or less herded to their office even if you are stroking a check for your newer vehicle?
