1967 GT500 Eleanor: Re-imagining a Classic - /BIG MUSCLE
Carroll Shelby created it, "Gone in 60 Seconds" re-imagined it, and audiences around the world made it famous. The 1967 Shelby GT500 Eleanor is one of the most recognizable movie cars of all time. With the body lines of a shark, the stage presence of a movie star and the perceived performance of an olympic athlete, it's no wonder die-hard enthusiasts fell in love with this amazing machine. BIG MUSCLE received so many requests for this car that we just had to go out and find one. So now sit back, click play and enjoy... and don't bust my chops in regards to my glasses - it was really sunny that day - M. Musto
CTS-V Powered '68 Camaro Drop Top - /BIG MUSCLE
Finding the right balance between a well tuned street car and a flat-out performance car is no easy task. However that didn't stop Southern California resident Bob Hall from building what may just be one of the best vehicles we've ever driven. He started with an ultra clean 1968 Camaro SS convertible, fitted it with a supercharged LSA mill from a 2009 Cadillac CTS-V, reworked the entire drivetrain and suspension, and in the end, created a car that's 44 years old but feels like it rolled out of the factory yesterday.
1966 Nova Wagon: TAPOUT Terror - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Tim "SkyScrape" Katz Most people who want to go road racing don't start off in a 48-year old station wagon. However it you're Tim "SkyScrape" Katz, the co-founder of "TAPOUT" you just say "F*CK IT", and build a wagon with the big 'ole V8 engine, a basketball size turbo, a roll cage and four racing seats so the family can come along for the ride. Tim's 1966 Chevrolet Nova Wagon was built in his garage and is anything but stock. Sure it's got some trick parts, but if you think it's a high-dollar resto-rod, think again as Tim's not only one helluva wrench, but one of the most die-hard car guys you're ever likely to meet.

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.
