THE LOAD(ed) QUESTIONER

As I’m sure all of you know DRO is a drag racing-oriented publication that spins off a pair of model books … one of these for Chevy fans. If I have anything to say about it, the quizzes on this particular brand will usually use the straight – line sport as its backdrop, but not this time. This is going to be a little more hardcore. I mean … ‘Do You Really Know Your Chevrolets?’ Check this out.

Oh yeah, and this month's winner gets an official MaxChevy Staff collared shirt! Good luck!
