Sweet Ford F-150 – Turbo Coyote Masterpiece

November 13th, 2019

You won’t hear me say it often, but this truck is a work of art. The owner has built a real showstopper of an F-150 using a Ford powertrain and a combination of OEM and aftermarket performance parts. The exterior is outstanding with Recon lighting and tastefully modified OEM badging, this thing is sleek and low. Slicks out back are on 17-inch wheels and the fronts are 20s. The interior is a pilot’s dream. Seriously comfortable racing seats and harnesses round out the look that says, “all business”. The engine is a modular Coyote 5.0-liter with a BOSS factory intake.

007 Drag Car – Aston Martin

August 30th, 2019

This stunning purple thing is akin to the famous spy car driven by super-spy, James Bond (007). The (royal) purple hue is fitting for such a luxurious brand. It’s a wrap – by the way. Aston Martin manufactured the body, as a drag racing application, and it is all aluminum. As far as anyone knows, the car is one-of-a-kind, registered street legal and capable of 7-second quarter-mile passes. Making this British beauty get up and go is a 568 cubic-inch New Century Performance cast aluminum engine block (Chevrolet big block platform) topped with a set of spread bore cylinder heads Read More

August 27th, 2019

Call them whatever you like; gearheads, hot-rodders, a speed shop, performance shop or a racing station – fact is that Bones Fab is creating art. All it takes is a little time, a lot of know-how and a big pile of cash. Bones took this 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 and turned into an absolute restomod monster. First impression? This car is huge! It’s 19-feet long and (even with significant weight reduction strategy in play) weighs in at approximately two-tons. Luckily, these guys have off set the girth with raw horsepower. Under the hood is a Robert Pond Motorsports SOHC 7.0-liter, Read More

900HP Subaru – Journey to the 8-Second Quarter-Mile

August 19th, 2019

I got mad respect for this father/son team representing Cuba. Pops has been a technician for more than sixty-years. He got junior started early in the engine building game and it’s finally paying off. The two have combined their resources on this 900hp Subaru with outstanding results. Like most of us, they are looking to shave time from their next pass down the strip. Today, these guys are looking for that elusive 8-second pass in the quarter-mile. Their 2005 Subaru WRX STi is a work of art. With hundreds of passes in the books, this Fuji Heavy Industries stud comes Read More

Black Beauty – 900WHP Buick Regal V6

July 18th, 2019

In 1987, the fastest American made production car was not powered by a V8 engine. The car was the Buick Grand National GNX and the engine was a 3.8-liter V6 with a turbocharger. Nothing spectacular but enough push to put them on top of the heap. Meet Jerry. He loves Grand Nationals and owns three. Today, Jerry has agreed to walk us through his pride and joy. It’s a 1987 GN with only 36k miles on the chassis. The running gear has even less. It’s still a V6 but it has been fortified with all the best internal components. Jerry Read More
