1956 Chevy Coupe – 6-Second Monster

January 6th, 2019

That’s correct – all metal (with the exception of the hood and trunk) – with factory glass and trim. Known as The Creamsickle, this orange Chevrolet economy coupe has posted a best quarter-mile elapsed time of 6.80-seconds @ 210 mph! Any way you slice it – that’s a whole lot of pickin’em up and puttin’em down. As previously mentioned, this is a complete car in factory trim. The fenders, doors, and even the bumpers, grille, and trim are stock GM. Translate that into HEAVY. It’s going to take a ton of horsepower to get this big body moving. Wheels are Read More

May 25th, 2018

In these days of awesome aftermarket high-performance components, it’s not that rare to encounter a 700hp street car. In most cases, big ponies equate to a built, balanced, and blueprinted V8 engine with some type of power-adder. That is precisely what makes our feature car so unique. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is no stranger to import performance car enthusiasts. There are some extremely powerful EVO entries on the horizon and many continue to run the 4G (inline 4-cylinder) engine platform (built and sleeved to handle the extra power).
