Editor’s Note: In this countdown series we are reviewing our favorite ten stories of 2017, stories you may have missed or enjoyed so much you wouldn’t mind seeing them again.

Scouring the globe to find the coolest cats, cars, and trucks, we have successfully established this platform to showcase the people and the power. So CJ and I thought it would be good to review ten of our favorites. Below, we both weigh in on why we liked them so much. Enjoy!

Full Story @ Hot Rods from Hell! Crazy Coupes Take Over Nashville

John: This was one of the highest ranked posts of the year and it’s easy to see why. Following 45 of the year’s best hot rods on a 100-mile reliability run in and around Nashville to determine the Goodguys 2017 Tank’s Hot Rod of the Year was epic. The sight of a pack of pissed off early Fords offered colorful visuals yet also lent itself to the rebellious spirit of the hot rodders themselves. Tires were smoked, speed limits were “loosely” followed and the scenery was spectacular. The whole experience was brilliantly captured by Mike Harrington and Steven Bunker. A great story!

CJ: “I liked this story for several reasons. This was another photo essay which helped to establish our own unique style here at Fuel Curve. By blending the people, scenery and cars together, visitors were able to “feel” the experience. Seeing the hard work that went into this story get rewarded with big viewer numbers was one of our first big “victories” as a website coming just weeks after our launch. The photos tell the entire story.”
