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.
Art Morrison 3G 1960 Corvette
The Smoking Tire heads to Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch to test the Gran Turismo Award-Winning SEMA car: Art Morrison's 1960 3G Corvette. It's a $400,000 one-off work of art that begs to be driven hard.
The 180 MPH 1969 Dodge Daytona: "Project Angrier"
The Smoking Tire heads to East Hampton to terrorize yuppies in the baddest muscle car around: Mr. Angry's 1969 Dodge Daytona. Blasphemous to some, envied by others, this is one tire-shredding muscle machine we'll take in our garage any day.
Ferrari 458 Italia Review
The Smoking Tire takes Ferrari's newest supercar to an appropriately exotic location for a thorough road test. Somewhere home to celebrities, billionaires, and guidos. Somewhere like New Jersey. Host Matt Farah wrings the 458 Italia out on New Jersey's beautiful roads to find out if it is truly the best Ferrari yet.
Ford SVT Raptor: Built for Baja, Tested on Bullrun
The Smoking Tire visits Ford's Dearborn factory to pick up the hottest new truck from the Blue Oval: The Ford SVT Raptor. Host Matt Farah drives the SVT Raptor from Detroit to New York City for the 2009 Bullrun Rally. Promotional consideration by: Ford-Trucks.com and F150online.com
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. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend

1956 Chevrolet Belair STK # 1211
Immaculate doesn't begin to describe this pro-touring 1956 Chevy Bel Air show car which just completed a high-level frame-off restoration. This is definitely one of the nicest 56 Chevrolets available in North Carolina and possibly the entire U.S. The car has had the same owner since 1968 and was purchased after the owner came home from a tour of duty in Vietnam. In the early years of ownership this car had a Corvette 327 with a four speed but then work, kids, and life in general took over. The car was stored away in garages until 2007 when the owner decided to go all out on the car of his youth. A painstaking restoration ensued and the result is the amazing machine you see here. At the heart of the beast sits a brand new GM Performance 502 CI with 502 horsepower that's backed by a Tremec TKO 600 5 speed manual. Out back sits a sturdy Ford 9 inch rear end that's housing 3.70 gears inside. This car's entire frame was painted body color and all unneeded holes were filled and seams removed for a smooth finish. A spring kit was installed so the body need not be tubbed to fit the massive 10 inch tires riding out back. A custom front cross member was fabricated so the Exhaust could pass through and keep things tight up under the body. Inside you'll find a custom leather interior that looks amazing with a flow through center console, hidden speakers, custom AC vents, and very comfortable seating. Modern amenities such as power windows, power locks, and power seats were added to improve driving enjoyment. Custom Machine tilt steering, Ron Francis wiring, Classic Instruments gauges, and Vintage AC were all used in this build. All this and only 2,300 break-in miles have been put on this car to date. Being a rust-free southern car to start with this car was able to retain all its original body panels and floor pans during the restoration. The metal in this car is all-Amercian, the way it should be. The paint finish is amongst the best we've ever seen and is a beautiful BASF blue with white pearl. We have a lot more details and specs available on this car, so please inquire. Several DVD's are included that photographically document the car's restoration. If you've just got to have the best 56 Chevy out there this is your car. For more information or to inquire about collector vehicle financing please give us a call at 704-598-2130 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org We have a friendly staff and knowledgeable sales associates who are ready to assist you in your purchase.
