Fox 2.0 Adventure Series - DISCONTINUED

Sometime this year, Fox decided to pull the plug on their 2.0 Adventure Series, and discontinue the entire line. No real reason was given, but we can imagine Adventure series sales were eating into both Performance Series sales & manufacturing manpower and materials. According to Fox, this line is being moved to their Sport Truck group, which is insider speak for BDS Suspension.

7th Annual Whittier Area Classic Car Show 2018

On February 25, 2012 the Whittier Area Classic Car Show was born. Still going strong 7 years later, this car show features automobiles from 1976 and older, foreign and domestic. We decided to check it out this year and boy was it worth the drive. Hundreds of flawless cars were on showcase from their proud owners and it was incredible seeing so much diversity in the style of each ride. Like a kid in a candy store we were enamored with all the custom work including engine swaps, forced induction, huge brakes, bold paint colors, and of course modified suspension...
