Chevy vs Ford – Street Battle for the Ages

March 13th, 2020

This video focuses on a rivalry that dates back almost to the introduction of the automobile.

With the introduction of today’s retro classic Camaro, Corvette, Mustang and Dodge Challenger, the competitive fires have begun to burn hot again.

N/A Vette Z06 Takes on Ninja ZX14 – Street Hits

December 18th, 2019

Once in a while, it’s refreshing to see a car that is built without power-adders. Turbochargers, superchargers and nitrous are great, but nothing accelerates quite like an engine built with the sole purpose of producing horsepower.

Sweet Ford F-150 – Turbo Coyote Masterpiece

November 13th, 2019

You won’t hear me say it often, but this truck is a work of art. The owner has built a real showstopper of an F-150 using a Ford powertrain and a combination of OEM and aftermarket performance parts.

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.

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
