1970 Chevelle: Refined Muscle - BIG MUSCLE
When it comes to muscle cars technology can be a double-edged sword. On the one hand it can enhance all aspects of a vehicles drivability, but on the other, it can strip the soul from a car in no time flat. Few people have been able to blend new technology, luxury and speed into a package that just flat-out works. Mark Bachman however is the exception. With a stunning interior, loads of grunt and just about every modern convenience you could ask for, his 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle has managed to blur the lines between old and new.

1964 Cadillac: Big, Black & Blown - BIG MUSCLE
This is a 1964 Cadillac DeVille drop-top. It's got a blown 468 cubic-inch big block, 600 plus horsepower, and if you haven't figured it out by now, it's a friggin' carnival ride on four wheels. I stumbled upon this amazing machine while walking through a car show in Alameda, CA and after speaking with owner Ron Dean, I knew it was something that had to be featured on BIG MUSCLE. Stretching 20-feet in length and having a personality that simply can't be ignored, this old DeVille not only kicks sand in the face of other hot-rods, but does so while maintaining all the comfort and class that vintage Cadillac's are known for.
