Muscle Cars and Road Courses Make Unlikely Partners - /TUNED
TUNED tests out a couple of suspension-tuned muscle cars on the Willow Springs road course to see how Hotchkis suspension components make old cars less scary, and modern cars fast as hell.
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.
Triple Black Attack: 1970 440 6-Pack 'Cuda - /BIG MUSCLE
Each and every muscle car enthusiast has that one experience that has helped define the way in which they view the automobile. For Northern California's John Cross that experience came by way of riding in the back of his cousins 1970 440 6-Pack Plymouth 'Cuda when he was a kid. It was a car that provided him with memories, stories and of course, a goal - that being, to one day own the very car which got his engine running all those years ago. It's now 2012, 42 years after that first faithful ride in the very 'Cuda you're about to see. This time however it resides in John's garage, not his cousins, which can mean only one thing... Sometimes dreams do come true.
1968 Camaro - Blu Balz 2.0 - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Karl Dunn It was over a year ago that we first ventured down to JCG Restorations and Customs in Oxnard, California. There we were introduced to owner Chris Gonzalas and a wicked 1968 Chevrolet Camaro that was owned by a gentleman named Karl Dunn, and aptly named, Blu Balz. Mother nature unfortunately didn't let us play that day, and because of that we vowed to give Mr. Balz another day on camera. Enjoy.
