When it comes to muscle cars technology can be a double-edged sword. On the one hand it can enhance all aspects of a vehicles drivability, but on the other, it can strip the soul from a car in no time flat. Few people have been able to blend new technology, luxury and speed into a package that just flat-out works. Mark Bachman however is the exception. With a stunning interior, loads of grunt and just about every modern convenience you could ask for, his 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle has managed to blur the lines between old and new.
The Cars of Queens: Part II - /BIG MUSCLE
Big Muscle continues its New York adventure with its second installment on
the cars of Queens, NY. This week we're taking a look at a stunning 1967
Buick GS 400 and a highly modified 1969 Dodge Charger. These are not garage
queens, but two bad-ass muscle cars that see duty on the open road, local
road and auto-x courses and of course the occasional trip to the drag
Pickup Power: 1959 Corner-Carving Apache - /BIG MUSCLE
Back in 1959 the idea of having a pickup truck that could go around corners
was simply ludicrous. These trucks were meant to haul farm equipment,
construction supplies and tow stuff, not shred corners and pull
lateral-g's. Owner Wes Drelleshak has always liked trucks, however he's
always had a special affinity for one in particular - a 1959 Chevrolet
Apache with the rare Fleetside bed. He bought it with the intention of
making it his daily driver, but then something happened... He found out

Big Burnouts: 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari - /BIG MUSCLE
If you haven't figured it out by now, we love wagons on this show. To some
they're a misunderstood breed, but to those in the know, they're amazing.
Not only were the wagons of yesteryear known for their styling, but their
capacity to haul as much cargo as a modern day pickup. This 1964 Pontiac
Catalina Safari started off life as a Police Wagon, but was transformed by
its owner into the kick-ass, tire-shredding monster you see here. With a
Nelson Racing Engines 468 cid big-block under the hood, some updated
suspension bits and a killer look, this big green machine is
outside-the-box styling at its best.

JCG Restorations 1968 Camaro -- /BIG MUSCLE
Tucked away in a small industrial park in Oxnard, CA sits JCG Restorations
& Customs, a moderately sized shop that has built some of the best
performing pro-touring cars that we've ever driven. Now generally we don't
focus in on shops, however when the owners of three of our best test cars
start dropping names, we tend to listen. Originally we descended on JCG to
drive Blu Balz, a stunning 1968 Camaro owned by one Karl Dunn.
However since Mother Nature decided to water the Earth that day, we put our
original plans on hold and got shop owner Cris Gonzalez to give us the in's
and out's of what it takes to make a stellar pro-touring car.

The Cars of Queens: Part I - /BIG MUSCLE
Before BIG MUSCLE had its feet planted firmly in West Coast soil, it was
stationed here... in beautiful Queens, NY. Now while most people would
never think of Queens as a destination spot, believe me when I tell you
that in this land of graffiti, window bars and padlocks lies some of the
coolest muscle cars that you're ever likely to see. This is Part I of BIG
MUSCLEs two part episode on the "Cars of Queens". In this episode we take a
look at a wicked 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS drop-top and a stunning 1968
Dodge Coronet R/T. Both cars have been updated accordingly in all
departments and both cars were conceived to be, at their cores, bad-ass New
York street fighters.
Feels like a Porsche? Yes. 1969 AMX - /Big Muscle
When the American Motors Corporation (AMC) released the AMX back in 1969
the motoring world didn't know what to make of it. It had two seats like a
sports car, a solid live axle and a raucous V8 like a muscle car, and
styling that could've gone either way. Owner Jimi Day has been a long time
fan of the AMX so when he got the opportunity to construct his own he
pulled out all the stops, went buck-ass wild, and built what is arguably
one of the best AMX's on the planet Earth.
BEST of Muscle Cars ( CRASH and FAIL ) pure sound EPIC
1971 Chevrolet Camaro: Mary Pozzi, Queen of Grip - /BIG MUSCLE
For its season opener BIG MUSCLE hangs out with the Queen of Grip herself,
Mary Pozzi. We traveled to Northern California to meet up with Mary,
husband David and her highly modified LS2 powered 1971 Chevrolet Camaro. We talked racing, car
set-up, touched on her SCCA autocross championships as well as her
inclusion in Sony's upcoming Gran Turismo 6. Then we took out her stunning
prized Camaro for an
all day flog in the California canyons.
Start: $400 - Finish: Mean Green MOPAR: Violent Valiant - /BIG MUSCLE
The Plymouth Valiant was never meant to be a muscle car. It was never meant
to be fast, overly attractive or go around corners. Loved by grandparents
and college professors alike, the Valiant was the go-to car for those who
wanted smooth reliable transport. Owner Shannon Hudson bought this Valiant
for $400.00 and after 20 years of ownership and a few different versions,
built it into one of the coolest MOPAR A Bodies we've ever seen.

1964 Cadillac: Big, Black & Blown - /BIG MUSCLE
This is a 1964 Cadillac DeVille drop-top. It's got a blown 468 cubic-inch
big block, 600 plus horsepower, and if you
haven't figured it out by now, it's a friggin' carnival ride on four
wheels. I stumbled upon this amazing machine while walking through a car
show in Alameda, CA and after speaking with owner Ron Dean, I knew it was
something that had to be featured on BIG MUSCLE. Stretching 20-feet in
length and having a personality that simply can't be ignored, this old
DeVille not only kicks sand in the face of other hot-rods, but does so
while maintaining all the comfort and class that vintage Cadillac's are

1950 Chevrolet: Morrison Farm Truck - /BIG MUSCLE
The 1950 Chevrolet 3100 Series pickup is the quintessential American farm
truck. However, after Craig Morrison of Art Morrison Enterprises found it
languishing in someone's front yard, this little farm truck went from
all-slo, to all-go. The original chassis was removed in favor of a new GT
Sport bolt-on unit, as was the original Chevy straight-six engine. In its
place sits a new GM Performance Parts crate motor with EFI injection that's
coupled to a Hughes Performance 4L60E automatic transmission. With the
original paint and interior still intact, this old truck has been given a
new lease on life while still retaining all the heritage that made it great
over 60 years ago.
Donuts in a 1966 Cobra - /BIG MUSCLE
It's a 1966 Shelby Cobra replica that was built by a Father and his two
sons more than 10 years ago. It's faded fiberglass shell is chipped and
spider-webbed. The stainless trim is pitted and tarnished and the wheels
are coated in a thick layer of brake dust. The carpet is also coming up and
every now and then it blows flames from its side-pipes due to it running a
little rich. Some may think these are problems. Me personally - I think
it's one of the coolest cars I've ever driven. This episode of "Big Muscle"
is about the drive, those project cars that we work on, and the
exhilaration we get when we wring them out for the first time on the open
