1967 Mustang: California Drag 'Stang - /BIG MUSCLE
In the world of muscle cars there are few as iconic as the 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback. It's stunning body lines were made famous by Steve McQueen in the movie Bullitt (he drove a '68) and since that time, it has become one of the most sought after muscle cars in existence. This particular car was, is, and will always remain (according to owner Greg Smith) a down home California drag car.

Front Suspension & Chassis Upgrades - '68 Cougar / Mustang
In this video, we show some of the ways you can easily stiffen your car's chassis and upgrade your front suspension. Using Andrew's '68 Cougar as a guinea pig, we bolt on, and weld on, some simple parts that will make a big difference in reducing the torsional flex that these front ends are prone to, as well as improving the integrity of the shock towers.

RIDETECH level 2 coil over + 4 link install (71 Chevy Camaro)
Ridetech level 2 coil over + 4 link install on 71 Camaro. This is our 2nd RIDETECH suspension upgrade completed, with this group of friends; our first on a "F" body! For the "F" body, we had to break out the welder! The older American Thunder series flowmaster transverse muffler/exhaus had to be removed to clear the upper link brackets. Andy, Don, Mike, Ray, Jim and Terry, thank you so much for your help on this. Replaced the Flowmaster "american thunder series" tranverse muffler with two 3 chamber 50 series flowmasters. Ran the 2.5 inch runs under the differential. The pipes allow for wider tires down the road. Car has more Pep! The guys at Guaranteed Mufflers and Brakes in Fremont, were great! Really happy with the new deep sound. Next step: Finalize the ride height!
