Restoration Process


Just like the cars we love, over the past few years we went through a frame-up restoration of what we want our readers and partners to experience.

We shaped our live events and publication to reflect what we truly love...anything powered by combustion that generates that adrenaline-pumping combo of horsepower, torque and show-stopping lines – whether that’s classic or exotic cars, custom bikes, fast boats, heck, we even throw in an occasional plane. Not surprising since the founder of our parent company Octane, LLC, spent 20+ years as an automotive executive and Global Head of Motorsports (FCA).


That's exactly what you'll find in our pages and our social channels - the coolest rides built by the most amazing people. Buckle in for an awesome ride as we share their stories!

Showtime Hot Rods + Family Fun


We were thrilled to raise $8,000 for Dove House with our November car show! Thank you to everyone who came out for this family-friendly event that featured something for everyone - so your kids and spouse actually want to attend just as much as you do! We are planning two shows next year - can't wait to see you there!

Giving Back


Dove House, Children’s Advocacy Center, has had a tremendous impact on the lives of children victimized by sexual abuse. Since its doors opened in September 2002, Dove House has provided services to more than 10,500 victims and non-offending family members. This coordinated response has resulted in higher-quality investigations demonstrated by a successful prosecution rate of 88% – up from less than 20% before Dove House.

We were thrilled to support this amazing charity with our November 2020 car show. Read more about it in the Mooresville Tribune.
