NEW PETERSEN AUTOMOTIVE MUSEUM EXHIBIT FOCUSES ON KIDS’ RACE CARS


Sidewalk Speedsters: The Grown-Up World of Children’s Cars” features kids’ competition cars. 

Los Angeles (December 18th,  2017) – The Petersen Automotive Museum today announces the opening of a special exhibit dedicated to children and their longstanding fascination with fast cars. Showcased in the Charles Nearburg Family Gallery, “Sidewalk Speedsters: The Grown-Up World of Children’s Cars” offers guests a look at kids’ competition cars.

Presented by Lucas Oil, the display features a diverse range of child-sized race cars—from old to new, electric- to gas-powered to sophisticated, and affordable to luxurious. A $430 million per year industry as of 2015, kids’ vehicles have become a phenomenon, populating the shelves, catalogs and online inventories of toy and game retailers worldwide. While many adults may wonder whether owner-driven automobiles will continue to be part of the everyday driving landscape, small, powered children’s cars are growing in popularity among youths.

“’Sidewalk Speedsters’ marks a playful change of pace for the museum,” said Petersen Chief Historian Leslie Kendall. “I had so much fun choosing the vehicles on display, as I grew up racing similar cars. The whimsical selection will perfectly juxtapose the more serious presentations, adding an exciting element of surprise to the museum’s overall atmosphere.”

Key vehicles that are featured include a 1927 Bugatti Type 52 “Baby,” a 1995 Meyness Bentley and a 1977 Porsche 936 Le Mans Jr. The exhibit will also showcase a 1968 Disneyland Autopia buggy, a 1931 Custer, a 1945 Plexiglas Lucas, a 1938 Maytag, a 1955 “Homemade,” a 1939 Motokar, a 1934 National Junior Racer, a, “The Lad’s Car,” “The Junior Automobile,” a Chevy Jr., a 1934 Cannonball Racer, a 1954 Vanguard Sidewalk Racer, and a 1955 Viking Craft.

THE QUAIL MOTORCYCLE GATHERING ANNOUNCES HONOREES, SPECIAL CLASSES AND MORE FOR 2018


Iconic celebration of motorcycle culture will honor the legendary Ness family, highlight both cutting-edge Electric Motorcycles and Café Racers, showcase 300 historic and priceless classics, and offer live music and incredible food.

Carmel, Calif. (December 19th, 2017) – The Quail Motorcycle Gathering presented by GEICO Motorcycle, a Peninsula Hotels’ Signature Motoring Event, has announced three special classes to celebrate its 10th Anniversary on May 5, 2018, along with a host of activities for hardcore riders and casual bike fans alike.

We are also thrilled to feature some of the wildest bikes ever built straight from the minds – and collection – of the Ness family, who are legends both in the bike world and here in Northern California.”

As always, the show will take place on the pristine lawns of Quail Lodge & Golf Club. Featuring a variety of activities for people of all ages to enjoy, guests can indulge in farm-to-table cuisine, live entertainment and goods from lifestyle vendors.

PETERSEN AUTOMOTIVE MUSEUM INTRODUCES ALL-NEW EXPANDED CARSTORIES FORMAT FOR ITS FOURTH SEASON


After 200 episodes and nearly four years, the popular automotive program now features guests driving their prized vehicles and is available via Facebook and YouTube video, in addition to the audio podcast. 

Los Angeles (December 14th,  2017) – The Petersen Automotive Museum today announced that after more than 200 episodes of its popular CarStories podcast, featuring guests ranging from Richard Rawlings to Cheech Marin, the show is being expanded to offer even more ways to enjoy the content and hear people’s stories about their love affair with the automobile. Rather than a studio setting, guests will now tell their stories from behind the wheel of their vehicle, driving the roads of Southern California around the Petersen Museum. Fans can listen to the audio podcast as they always have, or watch video on Facebook or YouTube when it goes live every Thursday at 7 A.M. PST.

The first official guest of the new season is Petersen first chairman and current vice-chairman Bruce Meyer, who is affectionately known as “The Car Guy’s Car Guy” for his infectious smile, fierce advocacy for the car hobby, and incredible car collection. His ‘57 Porsche 356 Coupe is a frequent ride and crowning jewel in his collection. Born out of the Porsche subculture of “Outlaw”-style cars that started in the canyons of California, Meyer’s 356 features a more powerful engine, wider wheels, lower suspension, and a roll bar, giving the car a distinct attitude.

“Our mission is to share the stories, passion, and history of amazing vehicles with people around the world,” said Petersen Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “This new format gives people at home a unique perspective into both the guest and the vehicle, offering them an opportunity to be in the car, riding around LA, hearing the car’s sounds, and taking part in the conversation.”

New episodes will feature a variety of guests in the coming weeks, including Matt Farah, Scott Toepfer, Charles Fleming, Leslie Kendall, Alex Rossi, Derek Hill, and Jubal Leierer.

Subscribers can tune in each Thursday on Shout Engine (www.shoutengine.com/CarStories/), iTunes, and the museum’s official YouTube page (www.youtube.com/user/PetersenMuseum) to catch the newest episodes.

PHOENIX RACE TIRES DEBUTS SEVEN NEW DRAG RACING TIRES FOR 2018


Coker Tire’s Performance Division expands its applications with more sizes

Chattanooga, Tenn. (December, 2017) –  Phoenix Race Tires, a division of Coker Tire Company, has introduced seven new sizes for its lineup of bias ply and radial slicks geared toward the sportsman drag racer. A variety of sizes and compounds are available to fit many applications, from weekend warriors in stock suspension street cars to Super Stock cars and dragsters.

4.5/28.0-15 Front Runner – This Phoenix front tire is sized for mid-sized cars or vehicles needing a larger front tire. A common application for this tall front runner is Nostalgia Super Stock. The new front runner is being developed with the latest tire technology and is DOT-certified. Designed for drag race use, it’s also a great choice for muscle cars, street rods and gassers, and can see limited highway use.

9.00/28.0-15 – Sized to fit general applications on most stock body cars for entry- and higher-level competitive drag racing, this tire utilizes the latest drag tire technology to ensure a balance of maximum traction and down track stability, to achieve the best ET’s and speeds.

9.00/28.0-17 – Accommodating late-model muscle cars, this new Phoenix tire offers fitments for many applications. The tire hooks hard and mounts to a one-inch wheel, which is large enough to clear most modern disc brake systems. Its tall and narrow design fits within the original wheel wells of most modern muscle cars.

10.5/28.0-15 – This size is commonly used on stock suspension “small tire” drag racing, fitting most applications without major modification to the body or chassis. The 10.5/28.0-15 tire offers racers another option, as engineers developed the ultimate compound for a long-lasting tire that hooks hard.

10.5/28.0-17 – Another new tire that offers direct fitment for modern muscle cars with large disc brakes, the Phoenix 10.5/28.0-17 targets the huge 10.5 market. With a flexible sidewall and plenty of contact patch, this tire is an instant upgrade to high horsepower applications such as Corvettes, Camaros, Mustangs, Challengers and more.

10.5/28.0-15S – Targeting the 10.5-inch market, this new tire is being developed with the latest drag tire technology.   A (S) stiff-sidewall helps move the car forward faster with less tire wrap-up.  To achieve faster reaction times, it’s the perfect choice for racers running on a PRO tree start.

10.5/28.0-15WS– Similar to the brand’s other new 10.5/28.0-15 slicks, this variation includes (W) extra wide tread and (S) Stiff-sidewall to move the car forward faster with less tire wrap-up, achieving faster reaction times.

HEIDTS LAUNCHES PRO-G IRS FOR FOURTH GENERATION CAMARO AND FIREBIRD


The all-new weld-in PRO-G IRS system transforms the rear suspension of the fourth generation Camaro and Firebird, making your F-Body more capable on and off track.

Lake Zurich, Ill. (December, 2017) – Heidts Hot Rod & Muscle Car Parts has developed an all-new independent rear suspension (IRS) system for the 1993-2002 Camaro and Firebird. This is the first and only IRS built specifically for the fourth generation, F-body platform.

The PRO-G IRS (part number IRC-401) is available in both 500 horsepower and 800 horsepower configurations and available with the stock 65-inch track width or a narrower 62-inch track width. Either system installs quickly and easily as the saddles are designed to line up perfectly with the frame and bolt in. The Heidts PRO-G IRS includes options for C4 rotors and calipers or upgraded Wilwood brakes along with a 9” Currie 3rd member and three or four channel ABS hubs.

The standard kit comes with a cradle, CV Shafts, tubular control arms, steering arm and billet adjustable coilover shocks and springs, with the brake packages as optional extras. This translates to more grip, a flatter ride through corners and the performance to bring your Camaro’s handling capabilities to the next level. The kit is usable both on and off the track, meaning you won’t need a trailer to take it racing.

Heidt PRO-G IRS for the 1993-2002 starts at $5,395.00. For more information on the Heidts PRO-G IRS or to purchase Heidts products, visit www.heidts.com.

MAGNAFLOW LAUNCHES CAT-BACK AND AXLE-BACK EXHAUST SYSTEMS FOR THE 2018 MUSTANG GT


MagnaFlow gives 2018 Mustang GT owners five different options to increase power and add an aggressive tone to their new pony car.

Oceanside, Calif. (December, 2017) – Ford’s 2018 Mustang GT offers more than a face lift. Upgrades for the new model year include 25 more horsepower, electronically adjustable dampers and a new quad-tip, valved exhaust system. For new Mustang owners that want more sound to match the updated Coyote, MagnaFlow has you covered.

MagnaFlow’s new systems for the 2018 Mustang GT add a smooth, deep tone while increasing exhaust flow and power. These stainless-steel bolt-on kits are available in both cat-back and axle-back configurations (PN#19368, PN#19369, PN#19370, PN#19418, PN#19419) have been engineered for maximum performance with dyno proven results. MagnaFlow systems reduce back pressure while maintaining a rich, powerful performance tone. Annoying exhaust frequencies are dampened with a dense wall of acoustical absorbing material, and the straight-through design prevents excessive heat retention, allowing the entire system to run cooler and last longer with no restrictions.

MagnaFlow has been able to free up more power by enlarging the stainless-steel tubing to 3 inches and matching it up to a 3-inch X-Pipe to increase flow. On the tail end, exhaust gasses exit  through 4-inch polished or satin black tips.  The new systems also utilize Magnaflow engineered active valves (optional delete pipe included) with v-band clamps for owners with or without the factory valved system.

All MagnaFlow exhaust systems come with a Lifetime Warranty, and each kit includes all the necessary hardware and components for a complete, bolt-on installation. MagnaFlow products are proudly made in the USA. For more information, visit www.magnaflow.com to find a dealer near you. Cat-back systems start at $1,499.
