2004 Corvette Z06 - Cool Cars, Hot Cars, Fast Cars
2004 Corvette Z06 Just your run-o-the-mill badass Z06 roadster. The C5 Corvette was literally built differently than all GM products leading up to 1997. 0.29 drag in the wind tunnel. D.I.C. which could read diagnostic codes and display them for the driver without a computer. Constructing the frame rails with a process called Hydroforming. Replacing 14 parts used in the structural integrity of the C4 helping reducing the C5's weight by 68 pounds. Hydroforming also alleviated the tall frame rails for the C5 making it less of a chore to enter and exit then the C4. You had to carefully step over the frame so you wouldn't scrape the interior carpet with your shoes or worse stiletto heals. I thought it was unique and missed it in the C5. Third-generation LS1 V8 was overhauled to an all-aluminum block, utilizing ignition coils replacing the distributor of all previous small-block engines and new cylinder firing order. Rated at 345 bhp and 350 lbs. ft. With 28 mpg highway mileage it avoided the gas guzzler tax. Another trend set by Corvette was Run Flats Tires became standard equipment in 1997. The most important of all refinements was the transmission being moved to the rear of the car right between the wheels aptly named trans-axle. Of course the significance of this was Corvette now had a more even distribution weight to the tune of 51% in front 48% in back. This may not seem like a big deal now but in 1997 as a gearhead or an American auto enthusiast you knew what they meant for the C5...Poising GM to enter and compete in the Super Car market. My personal favorite accommodation was the introduction of the Fixed Roof Coupe for 1999. There was a rumor back in the day that Chevy was entertaining the idea of offering a striped down model of the Corvette allegedly nicknaming it The Poor Man's Corvette. This was how the Fixed Roof Coupe would fit into the future stable of Corvettes. To be honest this wasn't such a bad idea as far as my circle of fiends were concerned, a no frills V8 Muscle Car would have been a welcomed turnaround for the American automotive enthusiast...It may have even made a Corvette buyer out of them. But, it didn't happen. What did happen was in 2001 Chevrolet used the Fix Roof Coupe body style too debut the most impressive Vehicle GM ever envisioned...2004 Corvette Z06 with the heart stopping LS6 hammering out 385 bhp and 385 lb·ft. The FE4 suspension calibrated toward high speed operation was developed for Z06 and not available on other Corvette models. 2004 Corvette Z06 boasted 405 horsepower. However, dynamometer tests have shown that GM underrated the LS6 by 20 horsepower giving it a total of 425 asphalt splitting horsepower and a missile screaming 412 foot pounds of torque. 1.90 second from 0 to 60 mph. This 3,074 pound badass can shear through the quarter mile in 11.97 second, bone stock at 118.80 mph. http://www.coolcarsvideo.com 2004 Corvette Z06 - Cool Cars, Hot Cars, Fast Cars http://www.cool-cars-video.com cool cars, hot cars, fast cars, dream cars, Cool Cars Video offers a feast for the eyes as well as insight from car enthusiasts about owning these cool street machines.

The Green Hornet's Black Beauty - Cool Cars, Hot Cars, Fast Cars
1966 Chrysler Imperial transformed into The Green Hornet's Black Beauty - The Green Hornet's Black Beauty - a unique 1966 Chrysler Crown Imperial, customized for the short lived show.

1968 Dodge Charger - Cool Cars, Hot Cars, Fast Cars
Cool Cars Dodge's full size muscle-bound Charger earned a great deal of respect when it was introduced to the NASCAR circuit in 1966 through 1967. Sales, however, were not very impressive until it was completely redesigned for 1968. The '68 Charger blew away Dodge's projected sales figures and a second production plant was built to accommodate customer demand. The 13 year lifespan of the Dodge Charger spawned over 710,000 cars. Today, what's left of those cars are highly valued by collectors and back yard mechanics alike. http://www.coolcarsvideo.com 1968 Dodge Charger - Cool Cars, Hot Cars, Fast Cars All the exotic cars, muscle cars, and performance cars you can imagine have shown up here - or will.

The Story Of Cougar 1: The First Mercury Cougar
A while back, we sat down with Jim Pinkerton, the owner of the very first production Mercury Cougar (1967 model year), a.k.a. Cougar 1. We hit the "record" button on our cameras and he let loose with an epic tale of how the car was first sold in Canada, its subsequent life there, and how it eventually got into his hands - an intriguing story! He also goes over some of the unique features of the car, and some of the restoration techniques used. It's a truly beautiful factory show car with more attention to detail than the 'average' Cougar. Special thanks to Jim Pinkerton for his time, and for providing most of the images you see in this video from his own collection of Cougar memorabilia.

1968 Mercury Cougar LED Taillight Comparison.wmv
This is the final chapter in my quest to find the ultimate LED lights for my 1968 Mercury Cougar. The ones that I'm happy with are part number: 1157-R18-T. They are $18.00 ea., but well worth it, as you can see from the video. Even outside, these bulbs really are bright! I almost considered getting their 45 LED light tower bulb (for $25.00 ea), but now, I'm glad I didn't! The company to get these from, is: www.superbrightleds.com.

Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.
