Dragy Race – Louisiana vs. Utah Silverados

June 29th, 2022

This video is a bit of a departure. We have a guy with an extended cab, turbocharged Silverado calling out another Silverado owner with a regular cab, supercharged truck. What’s the twist? One guy resides in Utah and the other in Louisiana. With more than 1,500-miles between them, these two competitors came up with an interesting way to make a drag race happen. Since both vehicles are equipped with Dragy Performance GPS boxes, these cats decided to forego the long road trip and the heads up format for a virtual race with precision timing from Dragy. We’ll reserve judgement until Read More

Street Outlaws’ Monza Gets a New Daily Driver

June 23rd, 2022

Those of you who live and breathe street (dig) racing, will remember Monza from the Street Outlaws Show on the Discovery Channel. Despite being called Monza, he piloted a bodacious Gen II Camaro that was in constant contention for the number one spot on “America’s List”. With a new show on the horizon, the 405 crew are preparing more street-oriented steeds to energize ratings. This is a first look at what Monza has prepared. Everyone loves a G-Body. Whether it’s a Grand Prix (which this is), a Monte Carlo or a Malibu; G-bodies are wide and roomy. They can handle Read More

World’s Fastest C8 Corvette by FuelTech

June 17th, 2022

So, this here is the world’s fastest (quarter-mile) C8 Chevrolet Corvette anywhere. As one might imagine, this is not your run of the mill Chevrolet Corvette. It has been radically modified by the experts at FuelTech in Atlanta. Of course, the C8 version is the first mid-engine Corvette ever produced. It rolls off the assembly line with a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter LS engine that can generate 495hp and 495 lb.-ft of torque. The maniacs at FuelTech got ahold of this one and went stark, raving mad. They added a pair of turbochargers (up high where they can be seen) and Read More

Mopar on Mopar – Modified Charger R/T vs. Stock Charger Scat Pack

June 13th, 2022

This video is going to be a little like two brothers in a boxing match. These two (naturally aspirated) Dodge Chargers are very similar in many ways and critically different in others. The respective engines are not the same, and one car has been modified for performance. Have a look. The Charger R/T (Silver) is equipped with a 5.7-liter HEMI. Key modifications include long tube exhaust headers, 3-inch exhaust (with an x-pipe), an intake manifold from a 6.4 motor, an 87-millimeter throttle body, a set of Hellcat fuel injectors and a performance tune. Maximum output is estimated at 390hp to Read More

The latest version of the Corvette (the C8) is a brand-new game. It features a mid-engine setup in a rear-wheel drive configuration. The stock engine is a 6.2-liter V8 Read More

Bagged 1967 Ford F100 Pays Tribute to Owner’s Deceased Wife

May 28th, 2022

Like a big old pig with a belly that drags the ground, this pickup gets about as low as you can go. What started out as a cab-only project (with a straight six) has morphed into this incredible cruiser that we are blessed to witness today. Lou’s wife (also a 1967 model) has recently passed away so, excuse him for being a bit emotional. He built this cruiser as a rolling tribute to her. The project began the right way; with a Roadster Shop rolling chassis (including Baer brakes). Lou added AccuAir air ride on all four corners. This feature Read More

Greetings drag racing fans. Allow me to introduce you to Butch. He is the proud owner (and fabricator) of this one-of-a-kind 1930 Ford Model A Sedan Rail Job. Let’s take a closer look at what makes this contraption click. Out front is a massive blown 542 cubic-inch Brodix big block.

630HP Restomod 1965 Corvette Widebody

May 14th, 2022

Our boy Shawn (from Autotopia) has done it again. He located this crazy 1965 Chevy Corvette with a widened body (6-inches) sitting on a nearly stock chassis modified to accept a C4 front suspension. In the rear, we have an independent torque-arm design with a Dana 44 Trac Loc differential. The Forgeline wheels are 18-inch (12.5-inch rear, 11.5-inch front) This is a car that is equally suited for the dragstrip or the autocross course. The engine is a Lingenfelter built LS7 7.0-liter all-aluminum dry sump V8 capable of producing 630hp. By the way, it’s naturally aspirated. The 3-inch exhaust system Read More

427 Powered Galaxie 500 Restomod

April 27th, 2022

By definition, a restomod is a vehicle that has everything it needs to look vintage and run better than new. With 635hp on tap, this 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 is that type of creation. Let’s join Shawn (of Autotopia), who is with the owner of this cream puff, and let him give us the low-down. Subtle changes to the exterior of this car make it a one-of-a-kind treasure. The interior is more of the same. Yards of beautiful leather with minor changes that make it totally unique. Air ride suspension on all four corners help to yield the car’s athletic Read More

700HP 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Restomod

April 8th, 2022

Thanks again to Shawn from Autotopia LA for finding this perfect 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Restomod. Despite the fact that ’65 is not typically a popular model for Chevelle enthusiasts, car owner John has done an extraordinary job with this one. Pretty and fast – that’s the right combination. Take a look at this vintage creampuff. John has a long and complicated history with this car. It dates clear back to high school. After being separated from the car for a decade, a friend helped him to relocate it. The teardown began and John delivered the car to a paint shop Read More
