Don't ask how I came to be driving it. I'm a year late to this review, so most people already know what they need to know. But do they know what the Spider is like if you drive it like a mentalist? They will now.
JCG Restorations 1968 Camaro -- BIG MUSCLE
Tucked away in a small industrial park in Oxnard, CA sits JCG Restorations & Customs, a moderately sized shop that has built some of the best performing pro-touring cars that we've ever driven. Now generally we don't focus in on shops, however when the owners of three of our best test cars start dropping names, we tend to listen. Originally we descended on JCG to drive Blu Balz, a stunning 1968 Camaro owned by one Karl Dunn. However since Mother Nature decided to water the Earth that day, we put our original plans on hold and got shop owner Cris Gonzalez to give us the in's and out's of what it takes to make a stellar pro-touring car.

Ferrari LaFerrari Insane Sound!
I have filmed the prototype of the Ferrari LaFerrari (known as the Enzo successor) in action! Video includes the mighty 6.3L V12 engine starting up (a world's first!) and many full throttle accelerations at Fiorano racetrack in company of a Ferrari Enzo. The sound is quite similar to the F12 Berlinetta (after all, they share the same engine) but the LaFerrari has an higher Exhaust note, and at low revs it burbles nicely.
Technical data - Ferrari LaFerrari
Engine - 6.3L V12 with 800hp / 800nm + 163hp / 200nm from the hybrid KERS system
Performance - 0 to 100 km/h (0-60 mph) acceleration below 3s, 0 to 200 km/h (0-120 mph) in 7s, 0 to 300 km/h (0-180 mph) in 15s, top speed over 350 km/h (217mph)
Price - €1.2m and limited to 499 units
$1,000,000 Ferrari Restoration Detail
This Ferrari is a good friend and customers car that was flown in the night before from the UK. It needed a bit of work to get it looking presentable again, and after a 2 day restoration... shouldn't need anything more than layers of sealant and wax for the rest of its life. (if cleaned and maintained properly in the future) This video shows you what I'm thinking about as I restore a $1 million car, and how understanding the interaction between different materials will effect the outcome of your work. The purpose of this video is not about "step by step" demonstration, but rather a glimpse of what professional detailers think about when working on extremely rare cars. Thanks for watching and send me an email if you have any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
The Cars of Queens: Part I - BIG MUSCLE
Before BIG MUSCLE had its feet planted firmly in West Coast soil, it was stationed here... in beautiful Queens, NY. Now while most people would never think of Queens as a destination spot, believe me when I tell you that in this land of graffiti, window bars and padlocks lies some of the coolest muscle cars that you're ever likely to see. This is Part I of BIG MUSCLEs two part episode on the "Cars of Queens". In this episode we take a look at a wicked 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS drop-top and a stunning 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T. Both cars have been updated accordingly in all departments and both cars were conceived to be, at their cores, bad-ass New York street fighters.
