Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he
probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he
sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we
have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It
obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay
attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.
Dodge Challenger '70 first start in 4 months

Old gas, no choke.
Driven last time about 10 months ago.
Doesn't run very well when cold, gets alot better after running for a
couple of minutes. Would prefer it with choke.
Cars that should be driven
They're all long gone. Pretty shame they didn't get the attention they

65 Mustang Fastback Restoration Project
This is my 1965 Mustang
Fastback I rescued from a field rusting away. I finished it around July of
2008 in my back yard garage with no professional assistance at all. It took
me about 26 months to complete. It has a 302 Ford motor and an 5 Speed
manual transmission. I restored this car to the information on the original
data plate on the door that included the body color and interior. The
stripe is unique in that I added a darker red to the Poppy Red body color
to get a stripe that is a little darker but blends in with the factory
color. This car features four wheel disc brakes made from all Ford parts.
West Coast Customs - Stallone's '55 Ford - Part 1
"Street Customs 2" Ep. 12 - Stallone's '55 Ford
Sylvester Stallone's upcoming movie, "The Expendables," pays homage to the
big action flicks of the 1980s and `90s, and will even include our own
California governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, in a cameo role. The film is
set to feature a 1955 Ford F100 truck, which had to be fully restored for
silver screen worthiness.
The customization experts at West Coast Customs would be the ones handling
the restoration efforts. After calling upon WyoTech students Owen Lubenow,
Rusty McClintock, and Matt Myers for assistance, the crew at WCC was able
to churn out three fully restored 1955 Ford F100s: two for the movie itself
and one for Stallone to keep. The ground-up restorations included metal
fabrication work and the installation of a 347-cubic-inch Ford small block
from ATK Engines, which reportedly put out 429 horsepower and 411
pound-feet of torque when fitted with an Edelbrock Total Power Package.
"The Expendables," written and directed by Stallone, features a full
billing of all-star action actors, including Stallone, Arnold
Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, and more. The movie
will be released on April 23, 2010.
70 Double Blown GTO
My 1970 GTO with two blowers. It's 474ci Pontiac engine with a 8-71 blower
on top of a 6-71 blower. This is from the last day of being double blown.
I'm going to one single 8-71 blower and going racing. The front clip was
removed to make it easier to work on. The reason for the double blowers was
not as a power enhancement like many ASSume. I stacked the blowers to have
a car that stood out in the crowd. Most Pro Street cars were starting to
blend together. If you seen one, you had seen them all. That wasn't the
case with this GTO. Al someone had to say was "The double blower GTO" and
people knew which car. I was told it couldn't be done, so I attempted it
and it worked. It stayed that way for almost 2 years. I knew a twin turbo setup would make more HP. I knew I could
have run a 14-71 blower and made more power. That wasn't the point. I
wanted to be different than the other cars in the parking lot, I did that
now it's time to ove on. For all those people who don't understand why,
I'm not going to try and explain it to you anymore. Get over it. I didn't
expect EVERYONE to love it. But you won't forget it.
Restoration of a 1969 Pontiac GTO, original Verdero green, gold interior,
400/350hp, and 3-speed manual transmission. Upgraded to 4-speed, Carousel
Red with Black interior. All work done by musclecarman427 from 2005-2007.
