Old vs. New – Mustang Shelby GT500

November 12th, 2019

How fast is fast enough? Obviously much faster today than it was fifty-years ago. This clip takes us on a journey all the way back to the beginnings of the Ford Mustang. It pits a Gen I Shelby GT500, one of the most powerful of the original muscle cars, against a Gen VI Shelby GT500. The Gen VI is an example of the new breed of muscle car coming out of Detroit over the last few years. The old is represented by a stunning 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Fastback with a 7.0-liter Cobra Jet V8 engine. This piece of Read More

November 7th, 2019

This ain’t your momma’s station wagon! This wild looking grocery getter blasts outta the hole and rolls through the quarter mile like funds through a gearhead’s bank account. It is fast. Since 2004, Eric Kenward (Racing) has tried a multitude of different configurations in this G-Body Wagon. He’s finally settled on a big motor and big turbo setup and it’s working fabulously well for him.

Calvo TT Vipers – Track Hits Roll Racing

November 6th, 2019

Who’s the king of the bakery? That would be the baddest roll racer in the land. My money is on anything wearing the Calvo Motorsports moniker. When it comes to building twin turbocharged Dodge Vipers that make thousands of horsepower, nobody does it better than Calvo. Nobody. Coming at you from FL2K19 in Bradenton, Florida, Calvo has brought out a bevy of Viper entries in T/A, ACR, and GTS trim. They roll out in various stages of modification – all ready to do battle on the track. The first specimen is a dull gray and carbon-fiber GTS with a CM1300 Read More

Extreme Drag Racing – New GT-R World Record

November 2nd, 2019

That’s right! They did it again! Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and English Racing have teamed up to bring the Nissan GT-R (Quarter-mile) World Record home to the United States. Maryland International Raceway (Budds Creek, Maryland) is the sight of 2019 Import vs Domestic World Cup Finals. This spectacular event suddenly morphs into a world record busting bonanza when the ETS GT-R scampers down the track in 6.56-seconds @ 225.15 mph. That knocks 2/100ths of a second off the time set by the Alpha Logic GT-R on February 15, 2019 in Dubai, U.A.E. The ETS Nissan is obviously radically modified with Read More

November 1st, 2019

So, whadda ya’ get when you cross a 700hp Corvette ZR1 with a McLaren 570S? How about an uncontrollable desire to see which one is faster? Lining up these two beautiful examples of automotive engineering seems as natural birds and bees. The test of the night is roll racing from the highways of Mexico. There are a pack of rabid ‘Vettes on hand, several modified Mustangs, a high-powered Cadillac CTS-V and – don’t forget – the exotic McLaren. This is going to be a hoot! The action heats up with a 700hp ZR1 (supercharged 6.2-liter) on the left and a Read More

Greetings drag racing fans, street racers and gear heads of every ilk. Welcome to the fifth annual Outlaw Armageddon The World Series of No Prep from Thunder Valley Raceway Park in Noble, Oklahoma. Wasabi is the name of the oddball Supra featured in this video. The car earns its moniker with a mustard colored paint hue and a smoking hot disposition. This mess of German, Asian and American ingenuity is favored in the Small Tire Class. Let’s see how it pans out. The body is all steel and as close to factory specifications as possible. It’s on a rolled tube Read More

Step by Step – 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner-Hellcat

October 25th, 2019

The HELLRUNNER is a full blown, body off restomod performed expertly by Fast Freddie’s Rod Shop in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Fast Freddie takes us in a step-by-step journey to unite style and speed. The 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner is a snapshot of muscle car heyday. The Chrysler Hellcat drivetrain achieved legendary status the instant it rolled off the assembly line in 2015. Marrying these two icons was more a matter of “when” than “if”. Believe it or not, this entire project begins with a barn find (I must be looking in the wrong barns). The Mopar was discovered sitting under a Read More
