Modified Magazine Project Cars - Editorialisms

The Project Car Issue

Peter Tarach
Oct 21, 2010

I think I speak for most of you when I say that I love building cars - probably as much as I love driving them. There are those people who love racing, but not wrenching; they drop a car off at a shop and pick it up when it's ready, then drop it off again when it's broken. I'm not one of those people.

It's not really the money that dictates whether or not my car goes to a shop, it's the fact that I want to be able to say that I did the work on the car and be proud that I know the ins and outs of my vehicle better than anyone. There's just something so satisfying and rewarding when you've built a vehicle with your own bare hands.

That's why the project cars in Modified are such a key element in the overall content. Without them, I don't think Modified would be where it's at today. However, they have always been second to the feature cars in the book, never getting the credit and respect they deserve. This issue is supposed to change that. It's about time we showed our project cars off in a nice photographic manner, and for those of you who haven't followed the builds from the beginning, it's a good chance to catch up and get to know them a little better.

I hope this issue inspires you to get back to the garage and renew your passion and bond with your car. There's nothing better than a pair of dirty hands and a running automobile to show for their hard work.
