This Mandarin Orange ultra-custom '55 Crown Victoria has won trophies at the Grand National Roadster Show, the Blackie Gejeian Fresno Autorama, Carlisle All-Ford Nationals and impressed the likes Boyd Coddington, George Barris and John Force among others. Body modifications include a grille and front bumper from a '59 Thunderbird, pushbutton door openers from a '41 Lincoln and taillights from a '55 Mercury. Once all of that work was finished, round two consisted of front lights from a '55 Mercury station wagon, rear fender skirts from a '57 Mercury station wagon and Cadillac wheel covers. The big daddy 560 horsepower Ford Racing 460 cubic inch V8 looks right at home in the smoothed engine compartment. D-460 aluminum SCJ heads top the motor, getting their fill from a Blue Thunder dual quad manifold and a pair of Holley 600s with Doug's Headers and a Modine radiator rounding out the package. An A-arm front suspension houses Aldan Eagle coil overs at all four corners, a Morrison spindle set, Wilwood 11" disc brakes and a Flaming River rack. Out back, a Morrison four link set hangs a Hooper's Ford 9" with 3.50 gears, Moser 36 spline axles and another pair of Wilwood 11" rear disc brakes. The floors are as perfect as the topside, making a perfect backdrop to the custom 2.5" ceramic coated Exhaust. Inside, 1967 Thunderbird landau seats are done in the same leather as the rest of the cockpit and look great next to Nosse Brothers custom door panels. VDO classic series instruments are set in a customized '56 Ford dash and the Ididit steering column features a billet Budnik steering wheel which complements Nosse Brothers billet pedals. Built over a four year period at a cost of more than $250,000, this car is the fulfillment of a childhood dream. If you're a Ford fan, a custom fan or a 50s fan this car just has to make you smile.

M2, 61 Chevy C10, 63 Impala....
Nothing beats the satisfaction of chasing down and pulling old cars from
their resting spots. There is a thrill in the hunt, and a joy in
discovering a car that nobody else knows about. These are the cars that
have been parked for whatever unknown reason ; a blown tranny, discarded in
disgust, set aside for later. Many cars are sentenced to a particular spot
with no release date in mind. They all have a story to tell, and one has to
wonder who fell in love with the vehicle first and plunked down all their
hard earned cash on the beast.
Cracking open the door is like entering a ancient tomb, with the rusty
hinges announcing your arrival. Every old car has it's own unique smell,
some brands even possesing their own odors.
Pop the hood next. Engine bays come in 3 types, complete, empty, and
partially disassembled. A complete bay is the ultimate goal, for that means
there is a small chance that the car might still run. An empty bay puts the
car towards parts-car status, or full swap/update for sure. A half complete
mill is the worst situation possible. One must play detective and figure
out what went wrong and where all the missing parts currently reside.
Pop the trunk, and it's time to go treasure hunting. The trunk can hold
anything from missing parts and nos trim, to possums and many other
shocking items forgotten over time.
The adventures of moving a car that has not moved in decades is immediately
present. Brakes stick, bearings freeze, tires are square and downright
ignorant, and every immobile wreck instantly gains 1 ton over its
still-mobile twin. Might be the 1800 pounds of old concrete in the trunk,
the one the owner conveniently "lost" the keys for. Many times there is
things in the way that were not present when the car was parked 45 years
Naturally, not all these cars go into the garage and come out show queens.
Some get fixed, few get finished, and most get slated for parts service.
The ones that do not meet one persons standards get pawned off on fresh
hunters with less money and more ambition. Maybe the car will help out to
get another twin out of the weeds also and back on the road. But one thing
is for certain, once the derelict wreck is loaded, the standard question
always asked is "Do you know of any more old cars around here?"

1956 Ford Victoria
The body is a 1956 Ford Victoria...but everything else is Supercharged Mustang...the perfect blend of
old and new....shot at the 2012 Street Rod Nationals South from Knoxville
TN...A very cool Hot Rod...ck it out!!!
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.
132456 / 2011 Ford Mustang: "Hawkized"
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7zbnmfu
Building cool cars for charity is nothing new, but this 2011 Mustang has a better pedigree than
most of those auction flyers that make a big splash and then vanish
forever. Built with input from skateboarder Tony Hawk and assembled by the
guys at Galpin Auto Sports (you know, the same guys who build the hardware
on the hit TV show "Pimp My Ride"), this is no paint and sticker upgrade,
but a comprehensive redesign of the 2011 Mustang that addresses everything
from horsepower to
interior accommodations. It has also done its job, raising tens of
thousands of dollars for charities like the Tony Hawk Foundation and the
Center of Living Peace in Orange County, California. This is an opportunity
to pick up a very famous car with substantial celebrity connections, which
also happens to be a killer street machine
1955 FORD CROWN VIC HARDTOP COUPE - CLASSIC MID-FIFTIES STYLING
1955 brought out the new Ford design, a symetrical and stylish car which
featured hooded headlights, fender spear that divided two tone colors, and
with the Crown Vic that stainless steel " crown" that wrapped over the roof
from side to side. This band was sometimes referred to as the " basket
handle ". The low end Ford was the plain jane Mainline, then the
Customline, and Fairlane. The Crown Vic was within the Fairlane model.
The engine choices were an L head 6, 223 cid, with 120 hp, then the V8,
272 cid, that would produce either 162 hp or 182 hp. This particular Vic
costs $2,202 at the dealer and has the optional continental kit and skirts
which make the Vic look lower and longer. The interior always matched the
two-tone paint scheme which has a harmonious effect. The Crown Vic name
was revived in the eighties and was utilized taxi companies and police
forces for years. Alas, the Crown Vic of today will cease production this
year. No more Crown Vic cabs and law enforcement vehicles. Thanks very
much for viewing this gorgeous '55 Crown Vic.
132575 / 2003 Chevy Lingenfelter Corvette 50th Anniversary
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cbonz8u
This 2003 Fiftieth Anniversary Chevrolet Corvette with 7,799 actual miles
was sent to Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) for a thorough
makeover and is a spectacular all-around performer that will satisfy anyone
who likes their cars loud, athletic and fast. Factory original, with the
exception of the custom LPE hood, this Millennium Yellow paint is one of
the best factory sprays I've ever seen with a bright finish and virtually
no defects. It has been meticulously maintained and has never driven
through or even sat in rain or inclement weather of any kind. Under the
hood, a silver Magnacharger Supercharger
sits front and center and forces air into an already potent aluminum LS1
V8. Supplying air to the Supercharger is
a Donaldson Air intake that combines with a stainless 3.5 Inch GHL Bull's
eye cat back Exhaust system to pile on
even more power. Finally, the engine was equipped with a 160 degree
thermostat and topped off with PCM tuning for a killer 490hp and 480
ft./lb. of torque. This car is factory equipped with the fantastic Corvette
Z51 suspension and Borg Warner T56 6-speed transmission that are more than
capable of harnessing all the extra horsepower. Planting the car
firmly on the ground is a set of three piece polished iForged Evolution
alloys that are 18x9.5 in the front and 19x11 in the rear. Wrapped around
those dramatic wheels is 275/35/18 Michelin Pilot Sport radials in the
front and 295/35/19 Michelin Pilot Sport radials in the rear. Inside, this
C5 Corvette's all-black leather interior is in great condition and shows
little if any wear at all. Diligently maintained, this Millennium Yellow
Corvette practically glows in daylight and is a spectacular show and go
piece that will be a star anywhere it goes. If you're looking for a car
that lures people in with its awesome looks and then blows them away with
its awesome performance, this is your car.

1956 Ford Customline Victoria & Ranch Wagon Car Commercial
The 1956 Ford passenger car remained largely unchanged from the previous
1955 model aside from a slightly redesigned, more open grille. Big news
for 1956 was the adoption of 12 volt electrical system across the entire
