Chevy C10 Sleeper Terrorizes Texas Streets

September 20th, 2019

Okay, so this truck looks like it was just pulled out of the salvage yard – until you open the hood. It is a shortbed (all-steel) 1985 Chevrolet C10 pickup with a mismatched front clip. The paint is rough, and the interior is raggedy, but it will roll up some wins on the street (Mexico). You don’t think it will? Hide and watch. Nestled in the wide-open expanses of the underhood area is an aluminum LSA Chevrolet crate motor, with a set of high(er)-performance cylinder heads. You might recognize the supercharged 6.2-liter LSA engine from the Camaro ZL1. Right out Read More

1000HP TT Viper vs. Corvette and Mustang

September 17th, 2019

Taking it to the streets! What else is a fellow in a twin turbocharged Dodge Viper supposed to do on a warm summer night? This guy fills up with E85 and takes to the interstate (of Mexico) for a healthy dose of roll racing action. Let’s take a gander. Featured in this clip is a twin turbocharged Dodge Viper. Already an incredible powerhouse of an automobile – in factory trim – this sweet serpent has been upgraded with a pair of turbos. Maximum output is dyno certified at 1,000whp. In the first contest of the evening, the Viper will take Read More

Torque Monster – 1972 Nova LSx NA

September 15th, 2019

Hello drag racing fans. Meet Memo from APS Muscle Cars, Inc. and his pristine 1972 Chevrolet Nova. No, it does not look like your average Nova, because it has been treated to the full Memo effect. The white and black paint scheme is very unique and as slick as glass. The black accents and black lines in the hood, door and trunk openings provide a subtle interruption to the bright white primary color. Black, Ringbrothers billet door handles and exterior mirrors finish out the look. The wheels are custom with specially designed Nova (emblem) center caps. The interior is basically Read More

Getting Down on the Street – Twin Turbo CTS-V

August 29th, 2019

To be perfectly candid, there are actually a pair of twin turbo Cadillac CTS-V entries into tonight’s action-packed lineup. There are also a number of other very capable cars from all over the globe. The racing action kicks-off very quickly in this clip. Let’s look in on the highway. First on the roll call is the white Caddy against a twin turbo Ford Mustang. Both cars come out of the hole rapido. After that, the Mustang is gone! Next up are the CTS-V entries going head-to-head. This one is interrupted by a long and profane argument regarding the exact speed Read More

10-Second Chevrolet Camaro Z28 – Track Digs

August 23rd, 2019

Nothing complicated about building a 10-second car. Not according to these guys, anyway. No turbochargers, no superchargers, not even any nitrous; just good, old-fashioned, bottom-end grunt and a great deal of consistency. Can you say truck motor? How about 5.3-liters of naturally aspirated V8 LS1? This stunner has stock cylinder heads, an Ed Curtis camshaft, a Fast 92/92 (Texas Speed) intake manifold/throttle body combo and it’s tuned by Nishan (New Jersey). The transmission is a 4L60E automatic (Yank SS4000 torque converter) and the rear end is a stock 10-bolt with a 3.42:1 final drive gear ratio. Right off the trailer, Read More

Fast Fred – 5-Second Chevrolet C10

August 15th, 2019

Meet Fast Fred (I personally like Five-Second Fred better, but I don’t get to pick the names). Fast Fred is from Stockholm, Sweden (not Alabama). He is campaigning the 1966 Chevrolet C10 pickup that his father used to pick him up from school. He bought the truck from Dad when he was nineteen and it has been an example in the evolution of speed ever since. Fred is quite a character and his truck is unforgettable. Most of the patina on the truck exterior is man-made but it has been in a shop fire. Fred almost lost everything until the Read More

Roll Racing – West Texas Street Hits

August 5th, 2019

As temperatures reach into the triple digits and the days grow longer, street racers take to the interstates (of Mexico) for some roll racing in the night air. This is door handle to door handle racing from 60 mph to 140 mph – as quickly as possible. It’s a warm night but I almost have goose bumps as we roll onto the interstate. Slow. Deliberate. Like a storm rolling in on the horizon. Suddenly a Mustang pulls alongside the 1,000hp Twin Turbo Trans Am and gives the sign. A count erupts and it’s on like hotcakes! In multiple passes, the Read More

9-Second Nemo – World Record Camaro ZL1

August 3rd, 2019

Headed out to Lucas Oil Raceway with Nemo for some closed track record setting drag action. Tonight’s action is in preparation of Street Car Takeover Indianapolis where Nemo will likely be running in the 9.5-second Street Car Class. Nemo is a Gen VI Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (Supercharged V8). This killer car is being billed as the fastest stock blower and engine 2019 Camaro ZL1 in existence. While the Lingenfelter blower remains intact, Jokerz Performance deserves a big thumbs up for porting/polishing the supercharger. These guys do beautiful work. The bottom end of the 6.2-liter Chevy mill is all OEM, however there Read More

Superstitious 2500HP Nova – No Prep Ride Along

July 15th, 2019

Greetings No Prep fans and drag racing enthusiasts of every variety. Welcome to the PSCA event (Rocky Mountain Summer Series) from Thunder Valley (Bandimere Speedway) in Morrison, Colorado. Meet Kelly Harvey, owner/operator of this stunning 1967 Chevy Nova. Let’s join our friend Brent as he takes us behind the scenes and inside the cockpit with Kelly during an actual run. Take it away, Brent! First, let’s take a look at what makes this sweet ride tick. Under the hood is a billet 521 cubic-inch Brad Anderson HEMI engine with a massive blower. No expense has been spared as this Nova Read More

8-Second Mustang ZR1 LS Swap

June 11th, 2019

Is it a waste of a good Corvette engine? Is it a Gen IV Mustang gone rogue? The answer depends on which manufacturer camp you represent. Chevy purists hate it for the former and Ford loyalists despise it as the latter. Now, don’t get it twisted – when I cut myself, tiny little bowties ooze out – but I see this build from a practical standpoint, and it looks pretty sweet. This “power couple” had the Mustang sitting around when a customer totaled their supercharged Corvette ZR1 with an LS9 mill between the fenders. Out came the blue oval cluster Read More
