LS7 Swapped Gen III Camaro IROC-Z

April 24th, 2019

Hello race fans. Meet Bruce, with Hawks Motorsports and (customer) Brad’s unique 1987 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z. With less than 10k on the odometer, Brad decided to do something special with his slug of a Gen III Camaro. He dropped it by Hawks Motorsports (Easley, S.C.) for a huge dose of TLC. Hawks decided to integrate the slo-poke IROC-Z with a much faster 2015 Gen VI Chevrolet Camaro Z28. After the engine bay was spruced up with a little clear-coat (Kolorworks); out came the meager 5.0-liter “pollution solution” V8 and the mighty LS7 (7.0-liter) all-aluminum V8 took its place.

Villain – 1000HP Street Dominator Chevelle SS

March 20th, 2019

When money is no object, and you simply must have the baddest car on the street, a frame-off resto-mod will usually fill the ticket. This 1970 Chevelle certainly will. Not a bad car when it came to Detroit Speed, the owner was just yearning for a bit more from this old girl. She already had a potent 502 cubic-inch Chevy Performance big block. The car looked acceptable enough but – WOW! – when an expert begins to inspect and configure; things can get real expensive, real quick. After a frame upgrade, a roll cage, new floor panels, and new wheel Read More

Terminator Swapped Fox Body – Street and Strip

February 7th, 2019

The most memorable words in film are uttered by the most memorable characters.

Featured in this video is a slick Fox Body Mustang that is dedicated to bringing the Terminator (engine) back, single handedly. First introduced under the hood of the 2003 and 2004 Mustang SVT Cobra, the Terminator was an iron block supercharged (Eaton 112 Roots) 4.6-liter V8. Forged Manley pistons and twin H-beam connecting rods (with special wrist pin lubrication ports) were added to the bottom Read More

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

Fastest Cadillac in the West

November 30th, 2018

This video is an instructional effort to demonstrate making a street car fast. Big Chief at Midwest Street Cars has taken this car deep into the nines while maintaining luxurious comfort and daily driver functionality. Despite the ability to “tote the front” way down the track and post quarter-mile passes in the 9-second range at 150 mph, this Caddy maintains a full camera backup system, a deluxe audio system, air conditioning, navigation, and it’ll still go a 1.38-second 60-foot with the front wheels in the air. If you have a Cadillac CTS-V that you want to make faster, you might Read More

November 10th, 2018

Want to know how to squeeze over 1,000HP out of an LS Camaro?

It requires but a glance to see that this is no ordinary Gen II Camaro SS. Thanks to the Roadster Shop, what was once a dirty, greasy, rusted, and forgotten muscle car is transformed into the masterpiece which is the focus of this video. It begins with a total teardown of the unibody car and fashioning a fully-boxed, chrome moly chassis and custom Roadster Shop Fast Track suspension. The factory sheet metal was reasonably straight but is now flawless and a fully functional wide body kit makes this a Camaro that you will never forget. Under the hood, there was Read More

January 24th, 2018

This video takes us through a world record quarter-mile pass (stock bottom end LS engine) and the ensuing tear down to prove it so.
