http://www.v8tvshow.com/forum - 16 year old kids are in a tough spot these days. We're not talking about the pressures of daily life and all that B.S.; we're referring to the fact that the kids who are into cool cars usually don't have the cash or the ability to get their mitts on a cool ride. Add to that un-sympathetic parents, and you've got millions of high schoolers rollin' beat up civics or other cheap junk. Dale Schwartz has a leg up, however, with his new project they're calling the Y-Gen 3rd-Gen. It's a Trans Am that's a full 7 years older than Dale, but he was able to build a car he wanted the way he wanted.
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #43: 1961 Ford Starliner Video
The world was a different place back in 1961, and the space-age styling of
the 1961 Ford Starliner tells the tale. This car technically pre-dates the
Muscle Car era, but the available 401 HP 390 made it a screamer on the
street and stock car tracks. This week's car has been up-fitted with a 427
cube V8 topped with 3 2-barrel carbs, a setup you could get in 1963, but it
looks right at home in the bay of this Starliner. There are many neat
styling features on this car, including the thin-pillared sloping rear
glass with zinc plated and polished stars, the subtitle tail fins, and the
twin "rocket Exhaust" tail lights.
It's one car from the Brothers Collection that is out of this world!
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #35: 1970 Mercury Cyclone GT 429 Super Cobra Jet Pilot Car
This 1970 Mercury Cyclone GT from the Brothers Collection packs all the
cool go-fast parts you could get on this car - a 375 horsepower 429 V8, a 4-speed
manual transmission, and 4.30:1 rear gears making it the Super Cobra Jet
package. It's bright red, sounds mean, and runs hard. Even cooler is
that this was a Mercury pilot car, which meant it was destined to be
crushed after assembly. Find out the story in this week's Muscle Car Of
Pro Touring 1972 Firebird "Code Red" Video Feature V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - This is one of the cleanest 2nd generation
Firebirds we've ever seen, and the best part is that it is driven hard and
performs as well. The body features dozens of subtle modifications, the
interior is all custom, the suspension is Detroit Speed, and the power
comes from a 575 HP Mast Motorsports L99.

Junkyard Turbo Swap! Chevy-Powered 1971 Datsun 240Z Autocross Thrash - Roadkill Ep. 26
What do you get when you cross a rusted 1971 Datsun 240Z with a Chevy 4.3L
V6 and a turbo from a Ford Power Stroke
Diesel? The Rotsun! During Roadkill Episode 25, Freiburger and Finnegan
revived the Rotsun expecting it to dominate in the 9-car autocross showdown
of previous Roadkill project cars. It also needed to beat a 2014 Kia Rio 5,
but failed to do so with the Rotsun shamefully breaking down before
completing a decent lap. So in this episode: revenge. After swapping in the
mismatched turbo and making nearly 400
rear-wheel horsepower, the guys head to
the autocross at the Goodguys 5th Spring Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona
and mingle with fans on their way to a rematch with that dastardly Kia.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Wide-Track: 1959 Bonneville - /BIG MUSCLE
• Chuck Cushner
Slathered in Lamborghini orange paint and exuding a presence that is
anything but subtle, this 1959 Bonneville is a car that represents a peak
time in American automotive design. It was drafted before government
mandates and regulations stifled imagination and creativity, and takes us
back to an era when we still looked to the stars for inspiration. This is a
car that will stop you dead in your tracks and make you truly long for the
days when chrome was King, gas was a mere .25¢ per gallon, and where Elvis
Presley was the greatest thing the public had ever heard.

commanding presence than the famous Trans Am. Not since 1997 have these two
iconic brands joined forces...until now.
