HOT ROD TEST DRIVES THE DERELICT '52 CHRYSLER

Jonathan Ward of Icon 4x4 built a very cool rat cruiser out of a '52 Chrysler Town & Country station wagon with a DeSoto front clip. The beater rides and drives like new with an Art Morrison chassis and a 6.1L SRT-8 Hemi and six-speed automatic trans. HOT ROD is road testing the car for a story in the April '11 issue of the magazine. Here's a peek featuring HOT ROD editor Rob Kinnan at the wheel during his commute to work.

CALLING ALL BEATERS!
Hot Rod Magazine spent some time with a cool car called the Derelict and got to bench racing about what other rides out there are like this... The righteous look and vibe of a true jalopy, but a stout yet reliable drivetrain combined with the spot on fit and finish of a well built and sorted Hot Rod. So, we are throwing it down. Do you have a great beater that can handle daily abuse? LET'S SEE IT! Go to our facebook page at www.facebook.com/hotrodmag and post a photo and some details about your beater before March 15, 2011. We will pick our favorite car and travel to wherever you are to do a full magazine and video feature on your winning car! Seriously. Don't forget to "like" us on facebook and subscribe to our youtube video channel to see all of our upcomming adventures. HOTROD.COM is pretty cool as well, so bookmark it in your web browser and you should be covered in all things HOT ROD MAGAZINE.

Hangin' With Top Gear's Rutledge Wood at HOT ROD Power Tour 2014
Rutledge Wood from American Top Gear has been a big fan of HOT ROD, Power Tour, and Roadkill, so he's had his 1949 Chevy Kurbmaster van at the last few Tours. Here, at the 20th Power Tour in 2014, HOT ROD's Elana Scherr and David Freiburger hit the road with Rut and the van. The aluminum-bodied stepvan is on a moden Chevy truck chassis and is powered by a 6.2L crate engine and 4L85E trans from Chevrolet Performance.





Rat Rod vs Lamborghini Aventador! Roadkill Episode 5
On this episode of Roadkill, HOT ROD's David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan spend 24 crazy hours with a 1930 Model A Rat Rod and a 2012 Lamborghini Aventador to find out which wildly impractical, larger-than-life car attracts the most attention.

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Harry Fisher In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice" car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well... above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the baddest hot-rods around.





800hp 66' Chevelle Dragster Startup
This car is being built for pro street drags at the Portland International Raceway. The only origional parts on this car is the rear 3/4 of the body and the front 3/4 of the chassis. motor is a 498 cu in Somers Racing motor built by Archie Somers in Vancouver Wa. Ford 9 inch, Art Morrison 4 link and Lemon Racing headers from Cali. The smoke that you see coming from the engine bay is the paint burning off of the headers.I have been helping my friend with this car for 2 year and its almost done. I will post more videos when completed.





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.

Cross Country in a Gasser 1955 Chevy with a Hemi! - Roadkill Ep. 30
On this episode of Roadkill, it's 2,600 miles, 530 cubic inches, 700 horsepower, six speeds, 17 mpg, and two fun visits with some friends from TV. Last time, on Roadkill Episode 29, we finished our Chrysler-Hemi-powered 1955 Chevrolet gasser in about two weeks of thrashing (it's the same car you saw us take, as a bare shell, to Jim Meyer Racing in Oregon in Episode 8). On this latest episode, we drive it around the block once, then hit the road on a 2,600-mile journey from Los Angeles to the kickoff party of the 2014 HOT ROD Power Tour in Concord, North Carolina. On the way, there's the breakdowns you expect from Roadkill, plus two surprises: a stop at Midwest Street Cars with Justin "Big Chief" Shearer and Shawn "Murder Nova" Ellington from Street Outlaws, and another with Rutledge Wood from Top Gear USA.   The '55 Chevy is based on an original body with new quarters and floors and a fiberglass decklid and tilt front end, and Lexan windows from ProGlass. It's not in primer: the car was wrapped in satin black by Moody from High-Tech Auto Wraps. The car sits on a complete gasser chassis from Jim Meyer Racing with a solid front axle on leaf springs and a ladder-bar setup with Vicking coilovers on the rear. The rear tires are reproduction Firestone piecrust slicks from Coker tire, and the fronts are just like stock VW Bug tires.  The engine is a 530ci Hemi based on a Mopar Performance crate engine. With a Comp solid roller cam, 10.5:1 compression, homemade 2-1/4-inch headers from a Hedman kit, and Hilborn stack injection powered by a FAST XFI controller and Aeromotive fuel system, it makes 700 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. We were stunned to see 17 mpg a few times on the cross-country trip, especially with absurd 5.43 gears in the Ford 9-inch rear axle. The key to it all is the Tremec T56 Magnum six-speed manual double-overdrive trans installed with a conversion kit from American Powertrain. The car uses a Speedwires harness, charging and starting by Powermaster, and a Braille lightweight battery in the trunk.
