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.

Air Suspension - Can You Really Have it All?
In the past I've thought of air suspension as a modification reserved for trucks, low riders, and show cars. But what about sports cars? Is it possible to have the look you want at a show, the handling you want at the limit, and the practicality of clearing speed bumps and driveways? The guys from Accuair Suspensions say there is, so we put their Audi S4 to the test.

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.





Super Sleeper 1972 Nova - /BIG MUSCLE
Wanna race? If so you may want to reconsider. You see this is Dru Diesner's 1972 Chevrolet Nova and it's anything but stock. From a looks perspective it's nothing special, in fact most people wouldn't put up $500 for this thing. Look a little deeper though and OH MOMMA! You see under its faded green paint lurks a twin supercharged LS2 that makes 1,160 hp... at the rear wheels. It epitomizes the term "sleeper", and is lethal to just about every other road going vehicle it comes in contact with. Big Muscle recently visited Northern Chicago to get a sample of this beast, and holy crap was it one of the best automotive experiences we've ever had.





1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • 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.

American Graffiti 55 Chevrolet Falfa's 55 THE REAL DEAL!
This is how the car looks today. This is the 55 Chevy that was used in both movies..... American Graffiti and Two Lane Blacktop. It was torn apart in the eighties and had lots of changes done by order of its new owner....... Was made to carry the whole family...... work done by Gary Charnock of Elkridge. MD..... so we know the REAL DEAL from the day it was bought to the way it looks today!! Fortunately the car retains 90% of its original parts on the car or in boxes etc...... Body, Frame, Front-End etc are original to the car as well. Restoration Talks Are Back On Again, So I Thought I'd Put This Video Back Up On Youtube for Graffiti Lovers to see. Car is owned by Denny Moran and Wayne Newsome. The car is driven, shown and raced mainly by The Wolfman Baldoni & the Astros Car Club in Baltimore. This car will still pull down a quick quarter mile times and can often be seen banging gears around town! The car Lurches Forward Franticly At Each Shift, Its WIld Looking To See It Run and Skate all over the street!!!! Hooks Up Very Well On The Track! Restoration talks are back on and plans to return the car back to its American Graffiti stature are back on the table again. KEWL!!!! Ive turned the comments off on this video and are by approval only. Opinions are like assholes. See Walt Baileys TWO LANE BLACKTOP Web Site for more info on this car and the other TWO LANE BLACKTOP 55 Chevy. Walt has a very impressive and vast collection of photos and info there for you to enjoy. Walt owns the 55 Chevy Camera Car from the movie TLB.......... The car has now been SOLD (Jan 2012) and heading west....Now it should get its restoration back to American Graffiti Movie appearance....... LONG LIVE THE GRAFFITI CAR AND ALL THE RACING SHES SEEN HERE IN MARYLAND!





The Original Sting Ray - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • 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.
