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.
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
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

The Tire-Punishing, 400HP Turbo BMW E30! - /TUNED
The BMW E30 is quickly becoming a cult classic among the DIY, autocross,
and track crowd. And though the M3 version may be climbing so quickly in
price, soon no one will be able to afford one, the 325i, as it turns out,
has some chops as a great platform for tuning. Kameron Baker's homebuilt
E30 is just about the nicest one we've seen, and if you think it looks
great, wait till you see how it drives.
Pro-touring Poster Child: 1969 AMX - /Big Muscle
When the American Motors Corporation (AMC) released the AMX back in 1969
the motoring world didn't know what to make of it. It had two seats like a
sports car, a solid live axle and a raucous V8 like a muscle car, and
styling that could've gone either way. Owner Jimi Day has been a long time
fan of the AMX so when he got the opportunity to construct his own he
pulled out all the stops, went buck-ass wild, and built what is arguably
one of the best AMX's on the planet Earth.

Dennis Newman and Dave Schaible and was constructed to compete in the 24
Hours of LeMons, a 24 hour endurance race where the original purchase price
of the car can be no more than $500.00. It's small, light and thanks to
its amazingly talented builders, has the ability to put the hurt on the
majority of its competition.

Run to the Coast - /BIG MUSCLE Camaro, Challenger,
Javelin, Mustang and
Cougar. These are just some of the legendary names that came out of the
muscle car era. They were big, brash and in your face and during the golden
era of the Trans Am Racing Series (1968-1972) they could be seen banging
fenders on circuits like Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Watkins Glen and Road
Nowadays seeing a muscle car on a road course is like seeing a unicorn in
the flesh. There is however one man who is hell bent on bringing these
classic beauties back to the track. Bill Howell is the creator of the new
American Street Car Series, a gathering of events that not only encourages
people to bring their vintage iron to the track, but to run them full-tilt
with the single goal of having as much fun as they possibly can. This week
on BIG MUSCLE we venture to El Toro in Southern California, where we take
part in the "Run to the Coast", one of the events in the American Street
Car Series. Here we not only compete, but we check out some of the coolest
rides the West Coast has to offer.

Rollin' In a Woody - Jack Dick's Surf Wagon - /BIG MUSCLE
• Ben McCloy
Sometimes, as luck would have it, we find vehicles right around the corner
from us. In this case the subject is a 1926 Hudson that was hand fabricated
into a woody surf wagon by Ben McCloy and Scott Satteria of Jack Dick
Custom's in Martinez, CA. This car is about imagination and ingenuity and
reminds us why hot-rods and muscle cars are just so damn outstanding.

Carb'd 461 Big Block - 1965 Oldsmobile - /BIG MUSCLE
Say hello to the first Oldsmobile we've ever featured on /BIG MUSCLE. This
1965 Cutlass F-85 has been cloned into a wicked 442 by it's owner. The goal
was simple - take a car that was a bit outside the norm and slowly
transform it into a kick-ass cruiser that has the ability to be flogged on
the autocross. With a carb'd 461 big block under the hood, it's big,
different and one of the most overlooked machines from the muscle car era.

The McLaren P1 Test. On Road and Track - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris drives the new $1.2 million McLaren P1 at the Yas Marina Grand
Prix circuit in Abu Dhabi UAE. Before taking to the track at night, Chris
Harris chats with Chris Goodwin, the Chief Test Driver for McLaren
Automotive to discuss the technology of McLaren's latest offering, perhaps
the definition of the modern day hypercar.
Fair warning, the McLaren Chris Harris drives in this video is the XP7, the
pre-production prototype for P1. The car has had a long life over the past
15 months, driving around the world and clocking over 40,000 hard miles.
Nostalgic Speed: Balls of Steel - /BIG MUSCLE
It weighs next to nothing, has the aerodynamics of a washing machine, and
sits on an 83 year old chassis with some plumbing equipment attached to it.
This is the 1929 Ford Model A dragster owned by Ron and Dave Cecaci, and
it's one of the coolest rides yet to be featured on BIG MUSCLE. Powered by
a 383 cubic inch Chevrolet small block and running on hand-cut drag slicks,
this vintage Ford Model A not only ran in NHRA, but made men out of those
who drove it.
