The new episode of Motorz featuring our top end engine rebuild is now online!

In this episode, Chris Duke shows you how to rebuild the top end of our block using a cam shaft and roller lifters from Crower Cams, plus heads and intake manifold from Dart Machinery. He walks you through all the steps involved and goes over all of the tools requires for installation – while providing tips for ease of installation along the way.

We’re that much closer to seeing this Chevy small block get fired up!

Our Motorz host, Chris Duke, is no longer a stranger to the Sears tools catalog. Beginning with the 2010 holiday tools catalog, each catalog continues to feature Chris as a tool advisor for Sears tools (see links below for previous 3 catalogs). The new 2012 Sears tool catalog comes out April 15th (just in time for you to spend your tax return windfall on new tools!) and once again features our tool-lovin’ host and some incredible Craftsman tools on 5 pages!

As the exclusive automotive tool advisor for Sears catalogs, he opens the Mechanics Tools section (p. 65), the Automotive Specialty section (p. 102), and the Air Tools section (p. 118). He’s also featured on the inside cover (page 2)!

We have a very popular thing going on at our Facebook page called “Caption This” where, daily, we post a funny car-related photo and ask our Facebook fans to write a short caption to describe what they see. The results are always entertaining and it’s a fun way to break up the day with something silly.

Ironically, we are currently on a closed captioning rampage with all episodes of Motorz, since more networks that we’re on are requiring CC for broadcast in order to be compliant with FCC regulations. In other words, if Motorz isn’t closed captioned for the hearing impaired, then they legally can’t air our show.

A few weeks back, Chris received a brand new Covercraft Industries WeatherShield HP car cover from our great friends at Covercraft, for the Motorz F-150 project truck. It’s the same exact model cover that each and every one of our Ridez Winners receive if they are selected!

Chris just sent me a teaser shot from our upcoming episode where Chris and Jason spent the entire day in a super secret location working on and filming our Project F-150. It has undergone some serious changes since you’ve seen it last and the new episode is going to be a great one from what I have already seen! We’re really excited about this episode and it should be wrapped up soon!

Be sure to check out the teaser shot, below!

It’s no surprise to anyone that the Japanese tend to go big. I think that one of the best things in their culture is that self expression is widely accepted, and if you roam the streets of Japan you’ll likely stumble across a series of larger than life characters dressed as though they’re about to fight crime in their favorite video game or Anime movie.

It doesn’t end in the way people dress, as you may have already guessed. No, Japanese citizens are very much into automotive modification. Cars such as the Honda Civic, the Nissan 350Z and the legendary Nissan Skyline are all good examples of vehicles you may have seen in the Need For Speed series of movies (modeled after the white hot Japanese automotive scene).

But we’re not talking cars today, we’re talking trucks – and BIG ones.

Last month, we selected Ryan Papp of Elkton, MD as our January 2012 Ridez winner.

Ryan’s truck, a 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 Quad Cab presented some interesting challenges for Covercraft Industries seeing as though he has an exhaust stack (with plans for a second) coming through the bed of his truck. Covercraft graciously accommodated our request for a customization, after getting some measurements from Ryan. His video serves as a big thank you, and we’d also like to thank him for sending it in!

Covercraft Industries provides one lucky winner with a custom patterned WeatherShield HP cover in gray or taupe color ($245 to $644 value) with a Motorz logo. All you have to do is submit a photo of your ride for our Ridez Page and the staff here selects a monthly winner!

February 2012 was the toughest month we have had in terms of choices, because we received quite a few entries!

This month, we ultimately decided on Manuel Serrano of Salinas, CA and his 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS!

Read on to check out his awesome ride, and an example of the cover you could win next month!

Whenever we film new episodes, we have tons of content that literally gets cut right out during editing. It’s often some real funny stuff when you look back and watch some of the moments that don’t make it to the episode.

We all know Olivia as our Motorz Girl on the show, but she’s also a spokesmodel for Falken Tire.

Olivia’s definitely not shy, which is one of the many great reasons she was selected for the show in the first place.

While at the SEMA show this past November, Olivia was more than willing to spread the Motorz word when it was appropriate while at the Falken Tire Booth. She posed for photos with the crew and signed a ton of our Hero Cards as well!
