1949 Dodge Wayfarer: Gangster Style - /BIG MUSCLE

Black paint, steel wheels and a look and feel that any high ranking mobster would kill for. This is the 1949 Dodge Wayfarer and unbeknownst to some, it's one of the coolest old school hot-rods we've ever seen. Owner Dan Zuccaro has taken a vehicle with humble roots and transformed it into a superb driver, show stopper and bad-ass street rod that steals the show wherever it goes.

Pickup Power: 1959 Corner-Carving Apache - /BIG MUSCLE
Back in 1959 the idea of having a pickup truck that could go around corners was simply ludicrous. These trucks were meant to haul farm equipment, construction supplies and tow stuff, not shred corners and pull lateral-g's. Owner Wes Drelleshak has always liked trucks, however he's always had a special affinity for one in particular - a 1959 Chevrolet Apache with the rare Fleetside bed. He bought it with the intention of making it his daily driver, but then something happened... He found out about auto-x. Owner: • Wes Drelleshak





Mitch Allread: Don't Call it a Rat Rod... - /BIG MUSCLE
It packs a 400 hp diesel out of a Ford F-350, a Dana 80 rear-end, and a look and feel that would make Max Rockatansky feel right at home. This is Mitch Allread's custom fabricated creation and it is, without a doubt, one of the coolest things on the road today. This is a machine that transcends the traditional hot rod formula by breaking down borders and setting its own stage. Whereas most hot-rods are built by custom shops utilizing parts from mail order catalogs, Mitch took a different approach and fabricated just about everything on his ride by hand. Calling this a rat-rod would be an insult - a work of art however... that'd be just fine.

1967 GT500 Eleanor: Re-imagining a Classic - /BIG MUSCLE
Carroll Shelby created it, "Gone in 60 Seconds" re-imagined it, and audiences around the world made it famous. The 1967 Shelby GT500 Eleanor is one of the most recognizable movie cars of all time. With the body lines of a shark, the stage presence of a movie star and the perceived performance of an olympic athlete, it's no wonder die-hard enthusiasts fell in love with this amazing machine. BIG MUSCLE received so many requests for this car that we just had to go out and find one. So now sit back, click play and enjoy... and don't bust my chops in regards to my glasses - it was really sunny that day - M. Musto





Start: $400 - Finish: Mean Green MOPAR: Violent Valiant - /BIG MUSCLE
The Plymouth Valiant was never meant to be a muscle car. It was never meant to be fast, overly attractive or go around corners. Loved by grandparents and college professors alike, the Valiant was the go-to car for those who wanted smooth reliable transport. Owner Shannon Hudson bought this Valiant for $400.00 and after 20 years of ownership and a few different versions, built it into one of the coolest MOPAR A Bodies we've ever seen. Owner: • Shannon Hudson





Racing Bonneville On a $300 Craigslist Motorcycle - /RideApart
"You don't have to spend a million bucks to fulfill your dreams. I bought a bike for $300, got it running and entered it in a race I'd always dreampt about. Bonneville is an epic thing that brings out all kinds of speed contraptions and it was an honor to ride an old 1986 Honda VFR750 in the Run-Whatcha-Brung class and pretend to be like my childhood heroes. If I can do it, anyone can." — Jamie Robinson For more on motorcycles, visit http://RideApart.com





1968 Charger / 1969 Daytona - /BIG MUSCLE Garage
The 1968 Dodge Charger and the 1969 Dodge Daytona. Two cars based off the same platform with very different personalities. These two old sleds are different though, 'cause well, they belong to me (your host) and they're the reason that BIG MUSCLE exists today. These are not show ponies, cruisers or weekend projects, but two warhorses that have been run in some of the toughest long distance and performance events in the United States. Built for reliability, power and performance, they are not technological marvels, but old school resto-mods that have been updated for one reason and one reason only - to put smiles on the faces of all those who see them.





Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Harry Fisher In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice" car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well... above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the baddest hot-rods around.

1979 Dodge Little Red Express: The Original Muscle Truck -- /BIG MUSCLE
It's the Granddaddy of the muscle truck. The original gangster, and the one that broke the mold when it came to straight-line American speed in the late 1970's. The Little Red Express Truck was a twin-stacked, small block powered pickup truck from Dodge that was you're worst nightmare if you happened to own a Ferrari 308, Trans Am or Corvette back in 1978 or 1979. Big on style as well as performance, the Little Red's are some of the rarest and coolest trucks to ever come out of Detroit, and with the power to back up the looks, it's no wonder they've generated a cult following amongst dedicated enthusiasts.





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.

World's Greatest Wagon? - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • BIG MUSCLE GARAGE Sometimes old cars break, it's just what happens. While some may see this as an inconvenience, we here at /BIG MUSCLE took it as an opportunity to expand our horizons, take a chance, and venture to a place we rarely frequent - the drag strip. Our plan was to film, talk to and get an idea of what racers go through when they run their cars down the 1,320. Everything was going great, until that is, they told us WE could race. We showed up in our 1992 Chevrolet Caprice wagon, aka, the Battle Wagon, so we knew we weren't going to set any records. What we weren't prepared for though, was the amount of fun we'd have running one of the slowest vehicles on the planet, at one of the fastest places in Northern California.
