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.
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

muscle car around: Mr. Angry's 1969 Dodge Daytona. Blasphemous to some,

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.
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.
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
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.
