In the hot-rodding hobby, standing out from the crowd is half the battle. Paint and wheels go a long way, but under the hood, induction is where it’s at. Dual quads, stacks, blowers, tunnel rams, and turbos all yank at passerby’s eye sockets– a sort of mechanized “Look at me!” of horsepower. But, to really set your ride apart requires a truly custom touch. Jeff Lilly, owner of the aptly named Jeff Lilly Restorations, did just that by fabricating a one-off, fiberglass air cleaner.
Hot Rodding was in full swing by the time the Tri Five Chevy came on the scene, but the effect it had on car culture is unparalleled. HOT ROD Power Tour would not be complete without a bevy of 1955, 1956, and 1957 Chevys. The first day of the event in Gonzales Louisiana was home to every style of Tri Five your heart could desire. Gassers, rat rods, Pro Street, Pro Touring, and even the most traditional and custom builds could be found basking in the sun on the green lawn of Lamar Dixon Expo center.
Tom Izzo is the owner of Speed Inc., a Chicago area shop that wrenches on late-model cars all day long. They install heads, cams, and blowers on customer cars and tune them on the chassis dyno. But when it came to his personal project, he craved something decidedly more classic: a bubbletop 1962 Bel Air. “I always loved the lines of bubbletop cars,” says Izzo.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
