Car Craft is a magazine devoted to automobiles, hot rodding, and drag racing. It is published by TEN: The Enthusiast Network. It was established in 1953. The magazine publishes articles that help car crafters from the novice to expert level such as rebuilding a carburetor.
The motto of the magazine is Loud, Fast, Real, which emphasizes its more budget-oriented approach to automobile building. When compared to similar magazines, Car Craft often will have vehicles built on a "real world" budget, with an emphasis on functionality over style. Sister publication Hot Rod overlaps to an extent on some of the same subject matter, however Hot Rod often will cover more professionally built vehicles.
The current editor-in-chief is John Mcgann. Previous editors include Rick Voegelin, Jon Asher, Jeff Smith, John Baechtel, Chuck Schifsky, Matt King, David Freiburger, and Douglas Glad. Car Craft names an annual All-Star drag racing team each year plus a lifetime achievement award.
