This unassuming 1970 Plymouth Cuda is a magazine featured steel rocket that is just as comfortable commuting back and forth to work as it is making passes at the local drag strip.
Restored by Mascar Autobody and Paint in Costa Mesa California, this killer '70 Cuda is a clean west coast car that retains all of its original body panels save for an AAR style fiberglass hood. Its factory straight body was completely covered in a great looking coat of Plum Crazy Purple basecoat/clearcoat and accented with flat black paint on its hood, header panel and horizontal side panels.
Under the hood you'll find a 340 Race X block that has been bored and stroked to 427 cubic inches and features a nasty 13 to 1 compression ratio and roughly 750 horsepower! Inside the massive black hood scoop a huge Holley Dominator 4 barrel carburetor sends 110 octane racing fuel and cool air from a high performance K&N filter into a modified single plane Indy intake. At the sides of that intake, slick looking oval port Indy aluminum heads have been fitted with Ferrea valves, K-Motion valve springs, T&D rocker arms and welded Moroso aluminum valve covers. Inside the block a Mopar performance crankshaft pushes Eagle rods and CP pistons while a custom ground Comp cam pops Comp solid roller lifters and Smith Brothers pushrods. At the back of the motor, an MSD digital 7AL box with two-step launch control sends fire from a Painless wiring harness to a Mallory Unilite distributor and red MSD ignition wires. At the sides of the block, Hooker long tube headers that measure 3.5 inches at the collectors border a custom oil pan with a center link pass through, and in front of the block a custom aluminum radiator carries both an electric fan and a Seatrab transmission cooler.
Underneath this Cuda you'll find more no compromises hardware and professional grade race equipment. A Pro-Trans built 904 3-speed automatic shifts quickly and efficiently while a turbo-Action trans brake and 5,700 stall Continental converter put a wheel stand inducing bite into the cars launches. Out back there's a stalwart Ford 9 inch rear end with an aluminum center section that carries pavement pounding Strange 4.30 gears and tough Moser 35 spline axles. Holding the engine off the ground is a factory torsion bar front suspension that's been upgraded with adjustable QA1 shocks and Wilwood manual disc brakes, and holding the rear end off the ground is Calvert monoleaf springs that are supplemented by adjustable Rancho 1000 shocks, CalTracs traction bars and two more Wilwood manual disc brakes. There's a custom 16 gallon fuel cell out back which sends fuel through a Barry Grant electronic fuel pump, and the massive Hooker headers flow into a vicious sounding ITT three inch Exhaust system that's complete with welded Dynomax mufflers and square stainless tips. At the corners, proven 15 inch aluminum Weld Pro Stars wear 28x4.5 Moroso DS-2 race only front tires and Mickey Thompson 325/50 ET Street radials in the rear.
The interior of this Cuda maintains all of its stock panels and carries the same 'wolf in sheep's clothing' theme as the exterior. During the build a 10-point chrome-moly roll cage that is NHRA certified to 7.99 seconds was built and installed by Bob Miller at BMP in Prescott, Arizona. Inside that cage, you'll find a stock vinyl rear bench and custom front buckets that have been upholstered with correct black vinyl and equipped with four point Simpson race harnesses. Between the seats, the cars original console sits on like-new black carpet and features a correct locking console, buttons for the cars power windows and a Hurst competition ratchet shifter that fits perfectly inside nice looking factory wood applique. In front of the seats, the cars original dash hangs accurate Autometer gauges and sports a large Autometer tachometer with a built in shift light and RPM memory function, and in front of the driver, a simple black Grant steering wheel is wired with a button that retards the cars timing.
Brutally fast yet completely streetable, this awesome '70 Cuda perfectly embodies the Pro Street philosophy.

This spectacular 1932 Boydster roadster features the absolute best of
everything from its custom pearl flames to its fully chromed 502 Ram jet
engine; and in addition to being a feature car in American Rodder magazine,
has taken home trophies from some of the most exclusive hot rod shows in
Painted and assembled by Chris Tietge's Hot Rod Garage in Lebanon Ohio this
sweet looking Ford is the kind of car that we all dream of owning as kids
and pledge to build as adults. It absolutely nails the often attempted, but
rarely achieved formula of OEM quality good looks and panel fit in a highly
detailed, completely custom package. The straight and smooth body is
covered in a thick coat of vivid GM Torch Red and topped by an amazing
custom pearl flame job courtesy of Wade Hughes from Ohio Flames. It's an
unbeatable combination on a car that is so well done you'll find yourself
walking back to it again and again just to stare and smile.
The cars killer GM Performance Parts Ram Jet 502 includes high efficiency
aluminum heads, an aluminum intake, forged aluminum pistons, forged steel
connecting rods, a forged steel crank, a hydraulic roller cam, a fully
calibrated ECM, electronic fuel injection and a stout 9.6 to 1 compression
ratio that creates 510 horsepower and 565 lb./ft.
of unmatched throttle response. Lighting fires for that massive engine is a
new American Autowire harness that sends power through a GM coil and
distributor to red high performance Taylor plug wires. At the front of the
motor a reusable air filter hangs above a Vintage Air Front Runner
serpentine system that clears the cars radiator mounted electric fan by
about an inch, perfectly displaying the laser precision executed throughout
this build. Aesthetically, the car has been completely finished for show
with all of its ancillary components like the chrome alternator, chrome AC
compressor, polished valve covers, coated long-tube headers and braided
hoses still looking brilliant and the simple and uncluttered engine bay
appearing more like industrial sculpture than a functioning automobile.
The cars custom-built frame was supplied by Boyd Coddington and consists of
a heavily tapered chassis that is reinforced by tubular cross members. A
polished Heidt's style front suspension features stainless steel upper and
lower control arms, chrome QA1 coil-over shocks, a Flaming River manual
steering rack and Wilwood performance brakes with drilled rotors and chrome
calipers. The cars polished Corvette inspired independent rear suspension
features inboard Wilwood disc brakes with polished calipers, two more
polished QA1 coil overs and a cool finned differential cover. Exhaust is handled by a custom fabricated and
completely polished oval Exhaust
system that includes stainless Hushpower mufflers, and a 6-speed manual
transmission that was transplanted from an LT4 Corvette provides motivation
via a body matched driveshaft and pavement shredding 3.73 gears. At the
corners of the car, 16 inch front and 18 inch rear Boyd Coddington wheels
wear 205/50 and 255/45 Z-rated Goodyear radials.
You can credit Steve Holcomb at Pro Auto Custom Interiors for this
roadster's stunning, show-stopping interior. Covered in high quality cream
leather, the bucket seats were custom fabricated just for this car and the
overall design is simple and effective. At the floor, a custom cream
console flows from the dash to the middle of the seats and houses a GM
6-speed shifter, controls for the cars Vintage Air HVAC system and buttons
for the power windows. At the sides of the seats, custom cream door panels
flow around great looking billet door handles, and at the bottom of the
seats high-end tan wool carpeting sits below chrome pedals and thick tan
mats. In front of the driver, a painted tilt steering column is topped by a
custom Boyd Coddington steering wheel, and the painted dash is equipped
with a Billet Specialties aluminum panel that holds reliable Classic
Instruments gauges. Behind the cockpit you'll find a fully finished trunk
that perfectly matches the cream interior and hides a Secret Audio AM/FM

In Torque We Trust - 1967 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S
Mr. Bob Gough's family moved to France for a few years when he was thirteen
years-old and thus he grew up idolizing European sports cars and looking
down on American muscle. That was until he discovered the 1967 Plymouth
Barracuda Formula S. The 'Cuda Formula S was upgraded in-house by Plymouth
with suspension and brakes that allow it to keep up with European sports
cars in the twisties (that is, all but the tightest twisties). He purchased
this car over twenty-three years ago and has gradually upgraded it. Bob
replaced the transmission with a Tremec 5-speed and now runs a 340 cubic
inch V8, rather than the original 273 ci engine. He's also replaced the
original 14" wheels with custom 15" steelies.
And the only suspension mod that Bob has made is replacing the original
shocks with nitrogen shocks that vastly improve the handling. The Plymouth
handles so well in fact, that he frequently surprises sports car owners on
drives. And once the curves straighten out, its ample torque allows it to
"leave Porsches behind." You do need to exercise caution entering corners
though, because the Forumla S is prone to rear wheel lock-up—so early
braking is a must! Even though Bob pushes the 'Cuda, it's actually docile
to drive, "but who drives a car like that?"
Triple Black Attack: 1970 440 6-Pack 'Cuda - /BIG MUSCLE
Each and every muscle car enthusiast has that one experience that has
helped define the way in which they view the automobile. For Northern
California's John Cross that experience came by way of riding in the back
of his cousins 1970 440 6-Pack Plymouth 'Cuda when he was a kid. It was a
car that provided him with memories, stories and of course, a goal - that
being, to one day own the very car which got his engine running all those
years ago. It's now 2012, 42 years after that first faithful ride in the
very 'Cuda you're about to see. This time however it resides in John's
garage, not his cousins, which can mean only one thing... Sometimes dreams
do come true.
Launch RPM Limit
Here I try to find out how far I can set the RPM limiter for launching the
car. Turns out that the 2500 RPM that I had it set to was already at the
very limits of the holding power of the brakes.

Newest addition to Ken's fold! This 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda features a 572

Transmission. This was the first time out with the car so still getting the
feel of things.

132587 / 2008 Bimota DB6R
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/8727v43
Light, powerful and compact, the Bimota DB6R stands for the greatest riding
experience you'll be able to find on two wheels.
With the DB6R, Bimota engineers aimed towards an even lighter and more
versatile motorcycle than their already capable Delirio models. Up front an
intricately designed headlight sits in a flat black housing above a carbon
fiber front fender. On top of the headlight, a gloss black gauge pod
incorporates a 10,000 RPM tachometer and a digital readout that combines
the bikes vital information with a performance readout that has a 20 lap
memory. Behind the readout, nicely finished silver handle bars feature
functional and stylish black mirrors above ceramic coated brake handles,
and hold reservoirs for the bikes Brembo brake system. At the base of the
handle bars, an ignition switch is almost completely surrounded by a
multi-faceted fuel tank that features bright red paint laid over pearl
white paint, black "bimota" scripts on each of its sides and a cool
machined aluminum fuel cap. Below the fuel tank a lightweight composite
frame has been covered in bright red and houses the bikes Ducati 1100
engine and dry clutch multi disc 'slipper' transmission. Behind the fuel
tank, a gray and black seat is held together with red stitching and sits
between two more sporty looking silver mesh grilles. Below the seat, a
silver shock for the bikes mono shock rear suspension sits behind more
carbon fiber bodywork and above silver aluminum pegs. Behind the seat, the
red and white body work hangs over a carbon fiber rear fender, a carbon
fiber tag bracket, matching LED tail lights and a cool integrated
The DB6R includes many new carbon fiber components including air conveyors
for the radiator, fairing sides, belt-covers, a clutch cover, a tag
bracket, fenders and side covers to successfully reduce weight.
Additionally, the bikes forged alloy wheels have been specifically
developed by Bimota, and shave off a little over 12 pounds. The silver
painted 17 inch front wheel wears a 120/70 Continental Sport Attack radial.
A matching silver painted 17 inch rear wheel wears a 180/70 Continental
Sport Attack radial.
The DB6Rs 1100 cc engine is taken right off the Ducati Hypermotard 1100 and
offers the same greatness and finesse of that bike in a lighter package
with a better transmission. That better transmission is a 6-speed 'slipper'
dry clutch transmission that is equipped with a hydraulic actuation system
and radial clutch pumps. The Ducati 1100 is a twin cylinder L shaped engine
that features 90 degrees opposing cylinders. It utilizes air cooling and an
electric fuel pump which sends fuel into a Walbro electronic fuel injection
system with a 45 mm throttle body and Magneti Marelli injectors for a 10 to
1 compression ratio, 95 horsepower and 76 ft./lb. of
torque. When combined with the feather weight body and weight saving
suspension, this high tech engine technology is good for a top speed of 165
That motor is mounted in a 1430 mm chassis that consists of an Extreme Tech
steering damper, a Marzocchi UD fully adjustable front fork and a fully
adjustable rear monoshock. Braking is supplied by a Brembo floating disc
system with a radial pump, drilled rotors with four piston, four pad radial
calipers up front and drilled rotors and two piston, two pad radial
calipers out back. The first thing that strikes you riding the Bimota DB6R
is its extremely responsive chassis that is perfectly suited to the
air-cooled L-twin from Ducati. The engine revs effortlessly and can be
taken up to its 8,500 RPM redline without any jerks or hesitation and when
combined with the dry clutch 'slipper' transmission, the result is agility
and handling that cannot be beaten. The bike is easily tossable, will turn
at nothing and if needed and can pop a wheelie almost immediately. It's so
tight and as long as the Continental Attack tires are warm enough,
everything works very well in the turns. It's a phenomenal riding
experience that thanks to great ergonomics and driver seating position will
make anyone, even a novice rider, feel right at home.
This 2008 Bimota DB6R is perfect. It's a stylish hand built bike that's
ready to go and is a BLAST to ride!
