1956 Chevrolet 3100 Pickup – Slammed Street Beast

September 28th, 2021

Bringing us quality builds from the left coast is a way of life for Shawn from Autotopia. This time he has delivered with a slammed 1956 Chevy 3100 Pickup. If this truck looks a skosh unconventional, it is because the stock stepside bed has been removed and a fleetside bed from a 1959 model has been installed. Looks great to me. First things first; the old straight 6 has been replaced with a fuel injected LS2 V8 (6.0-liter) truck motor mated to a 4L80E automatic transmission. The rear end is a 9-inch Ford with 4.11:1 final drive gears. The built Read More

June 15th, 2021

Hood Muscle – 800HP Twin Turbo 1970 Chevelle SS

June 9th, 2021

This 1970 Chevelle SS is a build that takes me back to running errands with my Grandpa. Difference is that Gramps old Chevy wasn’t putting down 800hp to a set of 22-inch tires.

Dragstrip Grudge Racing – Camaro ZL1 vs. Hellcat Redeye

May 1st, 2021

Here, we have some good old “call out for the ball out” grudge racing from the local dragstrip. Featured are a pair of modern-day production muscle cars that frankly put sixties-era muscle cars to shame. Without further ado, let’s get down to where the rubber meets the road.

The ZL1 is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 rated at 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. The transmission is a 10-speed automatic and the Candyman Camaro has Read More
