Art Morrison 1955 Chevy Bel Air - Faster Than a Ferrari?
The Smoking Tire hits Supercar Sunday and the canyons with the Art Morrison 1955 Bel Air, one of the best handling hot rods around. We toss this 55 year-old car through some of the tightest curves in California to find out if there really is such a thing as a Hot Rod for drivers.
Pantera: Restore or Pro-Tour
The Smoking Tire takes to the canyons with TWO beautiful Detomaso
Pantera's. One is a highly original car with a big-dollar concours
restoration, the other is a completely customized SEMA build by the
legendary Ringbrothers. Which way would you have it?
2011 Shelby GT500 vs. 600 HP 2011 "Firebreather" Camaro
The Smoking Tire hits the Mailbu canyons for one last hurrah with our
Shelby GT500, and we brought along our closest competitor: the Classic
Design Concepts/Exxodus Pictures "Firebreather," a 600-horsepower
Firebird-converted Chevy Camaro. For more info about the

The $25,000 Challenge: BMW E46 M3 vs. Ford Fiesta ST
The BMW E46 M3 is regarded as one of the best drivers cars of all time, and
they can now be had for under $25,000. In our opinion, the Ford Fiesta ST
is the best new car you can buy for under $25,000. So, which is better? We
hit the canyons with both to find out.
Matt Buys a Barn-Find Delorean!
After 25 years of unhealthy obsession and six months of searching (with the
help of DMC CEO Stephen Wynne), Matt finally finds the perfect Delorean to
*Update* After carefully re-checking the VIN and build date, Matt's
Delorean is actually a 1983 model, not a 1981 model. It was built in August
of 1982. Matt doesn't care. Thanks DMC geeks for assisting with that.

1950 Chevrolet: Morrison Farm Truck - /BIG MUSCLE
The 1950 Chevrolet 3100 Series pickup is the quintessential American farm
truck. However, after Craig Morrison of Art Morrison Enterprises found it
languishing in someone's front yard, this little farm truck went from
all-slo, to all-go. The original chassis was removed in favor of a new GT
Sport bolt-on unit, as was the original Chevy straight-six engine. In its
place sits a new GM Performance Parts crate motor with EFI injection that's
coupled to a Hughes Performance 4L60E automatic transmission. With the
original paint and interior still intact, this old truck has been given a
new lease on life while still retaining all the heritage that made it great
over 60 years ago.

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.
The Original Sting Ray - /BIG MUSCLE
• BRIAN HOBAUGH
When did you first realize that you loved cars? Maybe it was the time you
caught a glimpse of a Ferrari as you were sitting in the back of your
parents minivan. Or maybe it happened after watching your older brother do
a burnout in his rusted out Camaro. For owner Brian Hobaugh,
his love of cars started thanks to his Dad and a certain 1965 Chevrolet
Corvette that's been in their family for over 30 years.
426 Hemi in a '55 Chevy! Roadkill Episode 8
On this episode of Roadkill, HOT ROD's David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan
hit the road on a quest to build a car they've both dreamed of for years: a
'55 Chevy Bel Air sedan set up like a '60s Gasser and powered by a Mopar
426 Hemi. The guys drag out a '73 GMC Suburban that they'd never driven
more than around the block (did you expect anything else?), then use it to
pick up a bare '55 Chevy body in California before heading north for the
1,000-mile trip to Lincoln City, Oregon. That's the home of Jim Meyer
Racing, the chassis builder that helps the guys turn the '55 into a wicked
looking hot rod in a single day. There's no fail in this episode of
Roadkill! Well, at least nothing terminal.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.
