This is a rendering of what RMR (Rhys Millen Racing) has planned for the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe and its turbo'd 2.0L four. Awesome!

Hechtrod's Speedshop Sign #2

Second attempt.

Hechtrods Speedshop

So, the Hechtrods Speedshop is a figment of my imagination, at least I have that. So, here's the first draft of a cool vintage hot rod shop sign. I'm paying homage to the '64 Comet as that is what Poppirod (born in 1953 and cruised the streets of Azusa, Calif.) had back in the day. More to come!

BenRod picks up a sweet Saab Aero

Here's the specs:

2004 Saab 9-3 Aero Laser Red

55k miles

Grey leahter

Auto trans with paddle shift

BenRod's comments on his new Swedish Jet inspired ride:

"The Aero is the full package. Ground effects, big brakes, big wheels, sport suspension (sportfor a luxury mid-sized sedan, not sport as in SVT cobra), wicked sweetinterior with leather buckets. Anyway, its a really cool car. Its thewhole package. Looks cool, 4-door, 4-banger, tons of features and creaturecomforts. Now the bad news, which I am so very bummed about. Its anautomatic. And not that this makes up for it, but it does have paddleshifters on the wheel.

It is a very refined car. Nothing like I have had before. The dodge turbowas a little more slam me in the seat turbo lag. Lag isn't too bad in thisthing. I think mostly due to the 9.5 compression ratio. It has some lowend torque so it doesn't feel so dead off the line. Plus its just a weeturbo, 12 pounder. Anyway, I dig it. Sure I wish it was a 6-speed, but thered color, and the cherry condition make up for it. Plus I got to behonest, its kinda nice being able to chill in stop and go traffic.

Check the pics man. Its a fun car. Mostly show. Probably a very high 15car, or low 16. But it gets 32 mpg cuz! Going 500 miles on a tank surebeats going 140."
