What a great year it’s been for anyone who’s into hot rodding. The aftermarket is constantly working overtime to deliver the latest goods for your street machine and believe me, we’ve seen many of the end results of your endeavors and we’re quite impressed. And as much as we would enjoy seeing all your rides out 365 days of the year, a little downtime for the winter months is good—if nothing else to scribble down future thoughts and to plan out the following year’s changes to stay ahead of the pack. So whether you’re looking for basic bolt-ons to hop up your powerplant or everything from mild suspension upgrades to full chassis modifications, we can’t wait to see them back in action and on the road again! If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, fret not. This year’s Holiday Gift Guide will probably showcase something to get your adrenalin flowing. —Henry D.
