Twin-Turbo Subaru Legacy: How JDM Can You Go? -- /TUNED
Dave Brown likes to do things differently. So, rather than build an R-STi
like everyone else, he spent over two years at his shop Fast of Westchester
turning his 1998 Subaru Legacy into a perfect JDM Tuner Car, right down to
the rare Twin-turbo engine. This is how
subtlety should be done.

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
Best Paint Touch-up Tricks: Mercedes G55
This is one of the worst key scratches I have ever seen. This car needed to
be repainted, but I thought I would give it a shot...nothing to lose. It
covered 3 separate door panels with varying depth levels. 98% of the 9 feet
was through the clear coat, paint, base, and into the substrate. EXTREMELY
bad scratch. In this episode, I discuss multiple ways to approach this type
of paint damage. I want to be crystal clear: THIS CAR NEEDED TO BE
REPAINTED FOR 90-100% satisfaction. My techniques here, with the
understanding of the customer, had the best-case final results of 70% to
75% "better or touched-up" appearance. See how it turned out. Thx for
1985 C4 Corvette-Kart vs. 2014 Lingenfelter C7! - Roadkill Ep. 35
On this episode of Roadkill, we hack the entire body off a C4 Corvette,
cage it, and call it a race car! Freiburger and Finnegan fulfill a dream
that began four-plus years ago when they first wrote the "Vette Hack"
article for HOT ROD magazine, slicing 900 pounds of ugly fiberglass off of
a 1985 Corvette to prove that it would handle better in the autocross. Less
weight means more acceleration, better cornering, and better stopping. The
idea is proven once again here as the guys add a 350-horsepower rat-rod engine,
rebuild the trans, remove more weight, and make it rigid, safe, and stylish
with a full rollcage. Next, they head into a shootout with a 2014 Corvette
upgraded by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering with an Edelbrock blower,
Kooks headers, and Corsa Exhaust for a
wicked-sounding 640 horsepower. And then, of
course, there's the off-road mayhem. The Vette Kart rocks!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Ford GT Inspection: Should we buy or not?
Today I'm traveling to Pittsburgh, PA for the day to inspect a Ford GT
before a potential purchase for a client. Lots of research was done prior
to my trip, but I need to verify the fact in person before giving my
recommendation or encouraging the buyer to walk away. Let me know your
thoughts...should it be a buy or a walk? (based solely on condition. Price
is obviously still remains to be determined)
Mitch Allread: Don't Call it a Rat Rod... - /BIG MUSCLE
It packs a 400 hp diesel out of a Ford F-350, a Dana 80 rear-end, and a
look and feel that would make Max Rockatansky feel right at home. This is
Mitch Allread's custom fabricated creation and it is, without a doubt, one
of the coolest things on the road today. This is a machine that transcends
the traditional hot rod formula by breaking down borders and setting its
Whereas most hot-rods are built by custom shops utilizing parts from mail
order catalogs, Mitch took a different approach and fabricated just about
everything on his ride by hand. Calling this a rat-rod would be an insult -
a work of art however... that'd be just fine.
The 1,100 HP Switzer "Ultimate Street Edition" GTR - /TUNED
It wasn't long ago that driving a 1000+ horsepower car came with
many sacrifices. These were race or show cars, not to be used daily. Enter
the Switzer "Ultimate Street" GTR. On pump gas, it makes 1,000 horsepower with virtually no
downside. On race gas, it makes 1,100 horsepower. And the owner of
this particular GTR uses it as his daily driver to commute to work. Is
enough to get to the office? We'll find out.

Ryan Gates's 311RS - or - How to Make a Better Evo -- /TUNED
The Mitsubishi Evo X is a great performer for the enthusiast on a budget,
thanks to its very smart drivetrain. On top of that drivetrain sits an
utterly terrible tin can of a body and an interior that seems to come with
the chassis for free. Enter racer Ryan Gates. He's been competing in Evo's
for years, and decided that he wants to build a better Evo. So he's
improved just about everything on the car. We try to do a full test of it
at Monticello Motor Club, but it doesn't exactly go as planned. Is the
311RS the best Evo money can buy? We try to find out.
