Mid-Engine Crown Corvair: Porsche Cayman Fighter - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Chuck Rust Wouldn't it have been great if the United States had one truly great mid-engine sports car? I mean yes, there was the Ford GT40, Ford GT and of course the Pontiac Fiero (that sucked though), but just imagine if American manufacturers really had their act together and created something awesome. Chuck Rust, the owner of this 1965 Corvair Crown V8, knew that the little Chevy had great potential and that with A LOT of work (and some ingenuity), it could be turn into something outstanding. This car is about fun, performance and proving people wrong. It sounds outstanding, has some of the best lines out there, and thanks to a little funky paint and graphic work from its' owner, has a presence that few cars can match. One of the most well balanced performers we've ever driven, this Corvair Crown had us grinning from ear to ear from the first moment we turned the key.





Worlds Fastest / Quickest? Corvair Powered Sand Dragster 2.97sec. 101mph on this day
This car runs in the 2.90's consistently, with original 45 year old GM block, crank and heads. Hats off to Him and GM! If you back up a few years he was running 3.0's with corvair rods and cylinders! I think he has ran 2.93 to date, anybody else running in the 2's with a Corvair? please comment

1965 Corvair Corsa Convertible 4 speed Turbocharger Original Unrestored Car
Nice clean original Corvair. Picked it up for one of the car guys I know. It is NOT FOR SALE. But I wanted to share this one for sure. Many car guys have not seen one, some don't even know they did these with a turbo. I have owned several Corvairs in year past, but this is the first running, working, second series Corvairs that I have had the chance to get my hands on. The 1965 to 1969 Corvairs had fully independent suspension making them a fantastic handling car. Nadder had no clue how to drive--- True the first series Corvair had swing axle rear, just like the VW beetles had. But second series had true independent rear just like Corvette... Yep, there, I said it.. Enjoy!

Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim: "No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men, William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for the largest company in the world."

1930 Ford Five Window Coupe, All steel, 401 Buick Nailhead, Turbo400, fresh build - Kryptonite
SOLD - Fresh from the pages of Deluxe Car Kulture, Rod & Custom, and Rod & Kulture magazines, is this '30 Five Window ALL STEEL Street Rod. 1930 Ford Five-Window called "Kryptonite", running a fresh 401 Buick Nailhead, 6 Stromberg "97" carbs, a brand new "old school" build. Already in magazines and has won plenty of trophies.... It is an amazing car that was built by some very talented professional builders in Texas. With only 2,000 well sorted miles, it is like a newly built car from the sixties. That era was the inspiration for this awesome show winning coupe. There is a lot going on here so we'll break it down for you like this: The steel body is chopped 2.5", channeled 6" inches, with a one of a kind fabricated firewall, metal roof skin, dimpled drilled visor, and motorcycle gas cap. The grille is from a 32 Ford with handmade insert. The custom Candy-apple Green & Pearl White paint with custom scallops and pin stripes are simply eye popping! The killer pinstriping is deep under the clear coat so you can wax it up before a show and not worry about distorting the stripes. The results speak for themselves. The unique power plant is a classic early 60's Buick 401 "Nail-head" V-8 with a Drag Star long intake, 6 Stromberg '97' carbs, and Sanderson lake headers (with baffles). It sounds insane and runs fantastic! A MSD and Pertronix electronic ignition set up fires the powerful torque moster Buick mill. A Buick turbo 400 automatic transmission feeds the GM 10 bolt posi rear end which is running 3:08's. The modified Ford frame features '32 rails, a front 4 link suspension and coil springs are out back. Firestone period correct wide white walls are 15 inch with the ole cheater slicks on the rear. The front brakes are DISC with Buick covers and the rear are heavy duty drums. The interior has some very unique touches. The aluminum bomber seats with engine turned seat backs and sides are one of a kind. The upholstery is white pearl vinyl. The metal dash is filled with handsome working gauges. The shifter is a custom Lokar unit. This build took on a life of its own and the final results screams sixties magazine quality with the today's technology - it even has LED tail lights! You can just imagine how much time and money went into this truly one of a kind rod.
