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 strip.

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.





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.





1955 Ford Thunderbird: Back in Black -- /BIG MUSCLE
It's been in the same family for the better part of 50 years. Been modified with performance and weight savings in mind, and is one of the sleekest looking cars we've ever come across. This 1955 Ford Thunderbird is no secretaries car, but a purpose built award winning street machine that was built in a time before resto-modding old cars was all the rage.





1968 Charger / 1969 Daytona - /BIG MUSCLE Garage
The 1968 Dodge Charger and the 1969 Dodge Daytona. Two cars based off the same platform with very different personalities. These two old sleds are different though, 'cause well, they belong to me (your host) and they're the reason that BIG MUSCLE exists today. These are not show ponies, cruisers or weekend projects, but two warhorses that have been run in some of the toughest long distance and performance events in the United States. Built for reliability, power and performance, they are not technological marvels, but old school resto-mods that have been updated for one reason and one reason only - to put smiles on the faces of all those who see them.





The 180 MPH 1969 Dodge Daytona: "Project Angrier"
The Smoking Tire heads to East Hampton to terrorize yuppies in the baddest muscle car around: Mr. Angry's 1969 Dodge Daytona. Blasphemous to some, envied by others, this is one tire-shredding muscle machine we'll take in our garage any day.

1973 Chevrolet Chevelle: Bank Robber's Special -- /BIG MUSCLE
For its season finale BIG MUSCLE heads to the mean streets of Trenton, NJ to meet up with Sean Rich and his road warrior style 1973 Chevrolet Chevelle. This particular car was constructed with the idea that if one needed a getaway vehicle for which to rob a bank in, well then... this would be the perfect candidate. This is not some big dollar, no holds barred super car, but a ride built by its owner for the purpose of putting a smile on his face every time the key was turned.

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





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 known for.

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 road.





Maier Racing Mustang: More grip than a GT3? - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Mike Maier If you've ever driven a bone-stock mid-1960's Ford Mustang, then you know that these little cars make wonderful cruisers. They possess movie-star good looks and turn heads everywhere. Drive them hard though and you'll soon realize that what lies beneath that sheet metal is usually in need of some serious improvement . Mike Maier of Maier Racing is the owner of this stunning blue 1966 coupe, a car that was supposed to have been bought as a play toy for him and his wife. However when you grow up in a racing family, leaving things alone is generally not an option. Little by little the Mustang evolved away from the family hot-rod and into a test bed for new parts. More importantly than that though, it's now one of the baddest street 'Stangs on the planet. Most people will tell you that "Bigger is always better"... one drive in the Maier Racing '66 coupe however may make you rethink that statement entirely.
