Control Your ImpalaAir Ride Technologies has added new tubular rear control arms for the classic '58-64 Chevrolet Impala to their line of suspension systems. The innovative '58-64 Impala Rear Control Arms are engineered to provide new dimensions in ride quality, ride stability, and appearance. The simple design concept continues Air Ride Technologies' tradition of uncomplicated installation. The built-in air-spring mounts make these control arms a direct bolt-on replacement for the OEM control arms with no modifications necessary.

Different Kind Of ChurchHot rods, custom car shows, bikes, and drag racing have always been a sanctuary for Los Angeles artist Coby Gewertz. However, as the hot rod culture's popularity boomed, purity in the industry has become harder to find. To feed the souls of the faithful who share his devotion to our blessed lady of internal combustion, Gewertz presents "Church," a new brand aimed straight at auto aficionados.
"Church is an ongoing manifestation of my insomnia-conceived, designed, and funded by myself during my off hours of my day job," Gewertz says. "It's one man's attempt to steer clear of the scene, and keep the focus on the machines themselves. I've finally found a way to combine my passion for all things automotive and my endless pursuit of quality design." Eight T-shirt designs are currently available and feature simple, strong, and passionate design work, proving that more is not always best.
