If you have been with us since the beginning you know that one of the first Feature Cars we introduced you to was the Smokey Yunick Hot Vapor Fiero and now it is back in Hot Rod Magazine. (You can even see our site listed as one of the “Sources” at the end of the article.) The new Smokey article can be found in the September 2010 issue of Hot Rod on pages 40 and 41.
Our friend Tony Allers is mentioned at length for his role in bringing the Fiero back to life and gaining recognition for Smokey’s genius on this vehicle. We also now know that Ralph Johnson worked closely with Smokey on this invention and was actually the man who brought the original concept to life back in the early 50s.
If you car about engines, fuel mileage, political and big business intrigue you owe it to yourself to pick up this issue of Hot Rod and read the article on Smokey. Then go to our page and read the original Hot Rod article plus all of the new info supplied by Tony and some of our readers.
