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.

He’s finally settled on a big motor and big turbo setup and it’s working fabulously well for him. With passes in the low sevens, he has realistic aspirations that he might drop into the elusive sixes soon. Typically, Eric is running a 400+ cubic-inch engine with an 88-millimeter Garrett turbocharger. Finding himself in 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

October 18th, 2019

Hello, drag racing fans and welcome back to the streets (of Mexico, naturally) for a battle between the best of the eighties and what was (for a short time) the most powerful muscle car to ever come out of Detroit. In the right lane is the legendary Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. At the car’s production, it was the baddest car to roll off a Detroit assembly line. Equipped with a supercharged 6.4-liter HEMI V8, the Hellcat is capable of churning out 707hp. On the left, we have the beautiful black Buick Grand National from the eighties.

October 17th, 2019

Who’d a thunk it? A four-cylinder Ford beating up on a supercharged Camaro and a supercharged HEMI Challenger? This is crossing over into otherworldly territory. It’s flat out spooky.

October 10th, 2019

Contemptable sacrilege or common sense? Guess that depends on how doggedly you cling to the status quo. At any rate, this is one that’ll get a lot of people’s blood boiling. A giant Ford motor in a classic Chevy? Oh, the humanity! Just kidding. Fact is that every racer is smart to use what is most accessible at the time. This time it’s a 1969 Chevrolet Nova – abandoned by the car owner’s son for 25-years – loaded with a massive twin turbocharged Boss Nine 565 cubic-inch big block engine. The mill is built by Jon Kaase Racing Engines and Read More
