134076 / 1971 Plymouth 'Cuda
For more information on this vehicle visit This striking '71 'Cuda pro-tourer, with its 605 cubic inch Hemi V8, fully custom suspension and sleek leather interior, is perfect for the muscle car fan who wants the best of absolutely everything! The beneficiary of a professional, frame-off restoration that was completed by the owners of Lakeside Rods and Customs in Rockwell City, Iowa, this slick Plymouth super star features a seamless custom appearance that's highlighted by an immaculate coat of matte-finish paint. The team's plan was to create a car that was unlike anything they'd ever built. And this gnarly pro-tourer, decked in PPG Dark Titanium, detailed in a striking combination of black, orange and silver, and finished in PPG Flex N' Flat clear, ended up the perfect cross between a '70s drag car and a modern Autocross king. When this sinister 'Cuda rumbled into the showroom, it caused such a commotion that our entire staff came out of their offices just to check it out. And when we lifted the hood and found a 605 cubic inch Indy Street Legend Hemi that produces an amazing 850 horsepower and a stunning 790 lb./ft. of torque, we certainly weren't disappointed! At the top of that Maxx aluminum block, a custom shaker forces wind through a reusable filter element into a giant King Demon carburetor that's cinched to a ported intake and fresh stainless fuel lines. At the sides of that intake, Indy 426 heads, which have been fitted with high quality roller rockers and clean stainless valves, hang slick orange covers over an Indy-supplied rotating assembly that includes Wiseco 10.75 to 1 pistons, Eagle H-beam connecting rods, a Callies 4340 crank, ARP bolts and a Comp roller cam. At the sides of that rotating assembly, black long-tube headers swirl spent gases into a rowdy true dual Exhaust system. At the front of those headers, a familiar Billet Specialties Tru Trac system spins a chrome Powermaster alternator above a polished Billet Specialties power steering pump. And the big motor's fires are lit by a Painless Wiring harness that utilizes an MSD 6AL ignition system to spark an MSD coil, a color-keyed MSD Pro-Billet distributor and high performance MSD plug wires. Behind that high-octane engine, you'll find a TCI-supplied Powerglide that's wrapped in a Reid Racing case. That stalwart 2-speed spins a custom driveshaft that's hooked to a Ford nine inch Traction-Lok rear end, tall 3.73 gears and Strange 31-spline axles. As you can probably tell from our pictures, that rock-solid drivetrain is suspended by a custom Art Morrison MaxG chassis that's fitted with a Corvette C6 front clip, a Corvette C6 sway bar, a Watt's Link rear clip and Strange coil over shocks. And power flows to the pavement through a slick set of custom Intro wheels that spin 245/40ZR18 and 335/30ZR20 Pirelli P Zeros around chrome lug nuts and color-keyed paint. Inside this stunning Mopar you'll find a completely custom interior that's tight, technological and in excellent condition. The firm seats, custom-stitched suede and leather units that are equipped with RCI Camlock harnesses, feel comfortable enough to spend a sunny afternoon in. In front of those seats, a custom, Lakeside-built dash hangs a sweet set of Classic Instruments Velocity gauges above Large Rockford Fosgate speakers and small Rockford Fosgate tweeters. And the car's driver stays connected to the road via a painted tilt steering column that's complete with stylized stalks and a sporty Momo Nero wheel. In summary, this killer Plymouth pro-tourer represents creative engineering at its very finest, combining stunning design and execution with no-excuses, no-limits performance.

Chip Foose's 1965 Impala
Chip Foose's 1965 Impala Chip Foose, Impala, Corvette, v8 Say what you will about Chip Foose and the scandals he's been involved in, but the guy knows how to make a cool car, especially when classic bodies meet new technology. Say hello to the 1965 Impala "Imposter", a project that took quite a while to complete and won the 2015 Ridler Award at the annual Autorama in Detroit, Chip's 4th. The car belongs to Don and Elma of Abbotsford, British Columbia. They wanted something that resembled the Impala they drove to Disneyland on their honeymoon. Don bought it when he was 17, so fond memories are bound to be involved. Old school Muscle meets New School Hustle. Rather than use an actual Impala chassis, Chip decided to buy a 2008 C6 Corvette and spend a lot of time stripping it down to where the classic body of the Impala would fit. Of course, this being Foose, nothing is left stock, so changes were made all over the place – chopped roof, flushed Exhaust tips, chrome delete and so on. The Impala body was shortened 14 inches in total with about eight inches taken from the roof and six inches from the rear quarter panels and trunk. But it's not actually that small, since the Corvette frame had to be stretched 8 inches to fit. As for what's under the bonnet, the LS3 V8 has received a Magnuson Supercharger and one of those amazing engine covers painted like the car and shaped like a bird beak. Ridler cars are built to a whole other level of perfection and even things that can't be seen, like the transmission case or rear axle had to be finished perfect and matched to the style of the car.
