Keenan is an enthusiast with a foundation built on American muscle, and refined by pre-YouTube automotive DVDs full of mischief and highly modified imports. Frequenting an alternative opinion, with an unorthodox tone, readers feel invited into his garage for car talk over a couple of beers. Factory built performance cars, to the “Dajiban” scene of Japan, and everything in between receive high marks from Keenan as motorsport is his true love. Regarding street and overall auto culture, he stands by a “live and let live” or “stay in your lane” motto; “I would never go stanced out or hi-rise a donk, but I respect the build…” Keenan spends his work week as a fledgling entrepreneur in the motorsports industry, with hopes of spreading the joys of racing beyond typical markets.

Critical mass was reached by 1970 when insurance premiums brought too much pain to consumers’ ...

The Corvette C8 is Mid-Engine Masterpiece

Since 1953, Corvettes that have made it into production have been two things: Front engine-rear wheel drive, and relatively affordable. Since 1959, designers and engineers in the young program have flirted with the idea of sticking the motor behind the driver. Many design studies, from Chevrolet Experimental Research Vehicles (CERV), to open wheel racer development vehicles, the ‘Vette has ...
