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.





HOT ROD's Newest Project Vehicle
Editor Kinnan recently drove to Longmont, Colorado to fetch the latest "must have" car we found on eBay, a '52 Dodge Wayfarer. It's covered in surface rust (we like to call it patina) and the floors and rockers will need some street signs riveted over the holes, but it's all there. Our grand plan, if we ever actually get to it, is to stick a stone-dead reliable drivetrain in it, with a stereo and air conditioning, and drive the thing every day. In Los Angeles, you spend half the day in the car so it might was well be something cool, yet reliability is key too since it would really suck to have it die in rush hour freeway traffic. An LS motor is a no-brainer, but that seems wrong with this car. Tell us what you think we should stick in it, but remember that it has to be 100% reliable.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model 4Matic Wagon vs. Icon Derelict! - Head 2 Head Ep. 41
On this week's episode of Head 2 Head, certified wagon-freak Jonny Lieberman pits two of the very coolest station wagons in the world against each other. More than just cool, these are also two of the rarest wagons on earth. In fact, the E63 AMG Wagon is the rarest car Mercedes sells in the U.S. It's special order only through the dealer — it's not even on their website. Of course, the Icon Derelict is its own form of rare, being one of one. The Derelict started life out back in 1952 as a Chrysler Town & Country Custom Wagon, but things have changed. As for the E63 Wagon, we learned at Best Driver's Car that the stealthy Mercedes is quicker than several supercars. But does it have what it takes to defeat Icon's icon? Watch and find out!

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.
