Down N' Out 16

Not everything good in life has to cost your own weight in gold. This '73 Datsun is proof, and its owner Chris Kometz has mastered the art of crafting gems from junk.

Shell Shock 26
Although camouflaged by tons of non-minitruck parts and rust, there is a first-gen S-10 core beneath this rat rod façade.

Hard Knocks Nissan 34
Pat Cox's '86.5 Hardbody has the look of a back alley brawler with an attitude to match. This month's cover truck is definitely one tough cookie.

The Bootlegger 42
Just because it shines, don't mean it's fine. Shawn Robinson's rum smuggling Mazda is a bad to the bone, mean SOB with style too big to squeeze into any bottle.

Square Roots 50
This '92 Ranger's clean, boxy lines will draw you in from a distance and smack you upside the head with a truly interesting interior twist.


The Missing Links 54

Our project LUV was two links shy of a complete four-link setup. No problem. Watch as the missing links are built right in front of your eyes.


Midwest Mayhem 30

Central Kentucky plays host to this event that still holds the title as being the largest outdoor show in its area. Check out the coverage and see why.

Dropsicles Sideshow 38
In Alberta, Canada, this intimate one-day show delivers cool rides, killer cruising, and a chilled out atmosphere comparable to few.

Camp 'N Drag 46
Deep in the corn fields of Indiana is a show that never sleeps. Set up camp, pop a tent, and crack a beer. You're riding along for a long, amazing weekend.


Inner View 22

Take a tour into Dedicated Customs - Louisville, Kentucky's premier minitruck chop shop. Handbuilt and homegrown is what this one-man wrecking crew is all about.

Centerspread Poster 32
This one's cooler than a brass toilet seat on the shady side of an iceberg.
