Cougars at Barrett-Jackson 2013: Featuring KTL's 1970 SCJ Eliminator
We went back to Scottsdale this January to witness the sale of Joe
Valenti's 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator, with a 428 Super Cobra Jet
drivetrain and the Drag Pak option. This rare car was meticulously concours
restored over the course of 5 years by the renowned Cougar restoration shop
KTL Restorations ( http://www.ktlrestorations.com ) in VA.
A factor that made this auction even more interesting was the presence of
another 1970 Eliminator, in the same Competition Blue color, and also with
a 428 Cobra Jet engine (not Super) and also restored by a reputable hot rod
shop. This car was not restored to the same "concours" level that Joe's car
was, but it was still beautifully restored, and we expected to see it bring
close to six figures.
What we saw unfold that weekend in January was an interesting and sobering
experience. These two cars, which would seem nearly identical to the
untrained bystander, sold for vastly different prices. There is a lot to be
said for the day and time that a car gets sold, as well as the quality of
the restoration. But we were still very surprised by the results. This
video puts you in the middle of the action to experience Barrett-Jackson
with us. Enjoy!

Crusher Camaro Hits the Drag Strip! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 3
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we look at the history of HOT ROD
magazine's longest-term project car, the Crusher Camaro. Watch as the '67 goes to
the drag strip for the very first time in its latest configuration as a
'70s street machine, complete with an 8-71 blower on a big-block Chevy.
For you tech heads, here are the specs on the car: It's a '67 Camaro that weighs 3,650 with the
driver. The engine is 489 ci with a Weiand 8-71 that has been blueprinted
by The Blower Shop in Simi Valley, California. The carbs are 750 Holleys,
and the oval-port heads are also from Holley. The engine has a very small
(226-at-0.050) hydraulic roller cam. At 5 psi Boost, it makes 520 hp at the wheels, and 500
lb-ft of torque. The transmission is a Gearstar 4L85E auto-overdrive, and
the rear gears are 3.50:1 in a Ford 9-inch with a Wavetrac diff from Moser
Engineering. We ran the Crusher on 30x9.50-15 Hoosier radial slicks for
this trip to the track, though on the street it rides on Pro-Tracs from
Coker Tire. This car is very streetable on 91-octane gas.
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend
