Our friend Steve Magnante has been out of commission for a while as he has literally been fighting for his life from a bad brain infection, but he’s back! You may know Steve from all his years in the magazine world where he wrote for a ton of great magazines like Hot Rod and Car Craft, but in recent years he’s been the rain man of muscle car and classics knowledge on Barrett-Jackson’s TV auction shows. He’s also been making great YouTube content of his own, walking through junkyards full of great finds and sharing all the info on cool old rides. But at the end of last year we weren’t sure he was going to make it.

I first met Steve more than 20 years ago on Hot Rod Power Tour and was lucky enough to work with him a few times over the years. He’s a real treasure, one hell of a guy, and I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to be sharing these videos with you now.

Thankfully, he had great doctors who didn’t give up on him even after putting him into a coma to try and fight this brain infection. To be honest, there were lots of folks who have known him for years who were not sure he’d pull through. I’m so thrilled to say that he is in fact on the mend and working at getting back to his normal self. Unfortunately there are huge medical expenses, and side effects from his condition, that are making it necessary for him to get rid of some of his collection and more. I wish I could snap my fingers and make Steve the guy that doesn’t have to worry about money or help, but that’s just not in the cards at the moment.

So in the video below he’s talking about the Funny Fairmont, an altered wheelbase Fox Body Fairmont he built years ago, that is now for sale and can be yours!
