OVERVIEW

Chevy Power was published by Engeldrum Publishing, Bronx, NY. The editor and publisher was Phil Engeldrum, who had previously edited Super Stockers magazine before starting his own publishing company. In his new company he first started High Performance Stockers and Super Street Cars in 1967. He added Hot Cars in 1968 and dropped High Performance Stockers.

Then, Engeldrum re-titled Super Street Cars as Chevy Power in late 1972. The focus of Chevy Power was on street performance and competition classes for Chevrolet vehicles, mostly Corvettes, Camaros and Chevelles. It was densely packed with performance tips, performance part numbers and product details.

Chevy Power was a magazine with East Coast attitude!! The editor's goal was to fill the information and entertainment needs of all Chevrolet owners. He featured car owners, the so-called "little guys", who Engeldrum considered the backbone of drag racing. No funny or fuel cars, and God forbid Engeldrum would feature "Brand X" vehicles from Chrysler or Ford. Letters to the editor from anyone other than a Chevy owner were immediately dismissed. This intense focus on a specific audience was matched with biting humor and road tests or product comparisons by the famous Seymour Balz. Balz sold T-shirts with his likeness and once wrote of the 1973 Laguna SS454, "girls with minis will provide thrills for the people on the outside when they use the swivel seats to exit the S3". This wit found its way into the entire magazine. Great value for $1.00 and 100 pages of content!

Mr. Engeldrum took a distinct approach to the magazine numbering scheme. He might include the typical volume and serial number, but more significantly Engeldrum used a sequential numbering scheme that was interpersed across four titles - Hot Cars, High Performance Stockers, Super Street Cars and Chevy Power. For example, issue number 45 would be Super Street Cars, number 46 would be Chevy Power, and number 47 would then be Hot Cars.
