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.

Feels like a Porsche? Yes. 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.





Not a Rat-Rod: 1922 Ford Roadster -/BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Anji Ramsey Family heirlooms tend to come in many different shapes and sizes. Sometimes they come in the form of a piece of jewelry, other times a piece of furniture. Rarely though do they come equipped with a 255 cubic inch Ford flathead, side pipes and a sound that rivals most orchestras. This is Anji Ramsey's 1922 Ford Roadster and it's a car that's been in her family (in one way or another) for the better part of 65 years.





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





Satan's Rat-Rod: 1931 Ford - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Henry Kessler The engine is out of a 1952 Diamond-Reo tractor and makes 1,640 lb-ft of torque. The chassis is pieced together from old light poles from the City of Hollywood. The body... that's from a 1931 Ford. Meet Gretchen, one of the coolest rat-rods we've ever seen and a ride that turns heads wherever it goes. This ain't no hybrid, instead it's a black smoke belching, gasoline guzzling, animal of a car that's not only amazing to look at, but with some cool hidden engineering, has the ability to surprise even the most hardened of motor-heads.

1931 Ford Model A Rat Rod
Meet " For Pete's Sake..." This '31 Ford Model A has been chopped & channeled. Power is courtesy of '57 Thunderbird Special 312 V8. Lets ride!





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.





1928 Ford Model A Race Car
My friend's project race rat rod. It's a Ford Model A with an original engine, rebuilt by Dave. She still has a ways to go, but this nearly 85 year old car still goes down the road under its own power! So, this car would typically get around 30 miles per gallon. What the hell has Ford been doing for the last 80 years?





Rollin' In a Woody - Jack Dick's Surf Wagon - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • 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. Enjoy.





Wide-Track: 1959 Bonneville - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Chuck Cushner Slathered in Lamborghini orange paint and exuding a presence that is anything but subtle, this 1959 Bonneville is a car that represents a peak time in American automotive design. It was drafted before government mandates and regulations stifled imagination and creativity, and takes us back to an era when we still looked to the stars for inspiration. This is a car that will stop you dead in your tracks and make you truly long for the days when chrome was King, gas was a mere .25¢ per gallon, and where Elvis Presley was the greatest thing the public had ever heard.





1967 Mustang: California Drag 'Stang - /BIG MUSCLE
In the world of muscle cars there are few as iconic as the 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback. It's stunning body lines were made famous by Steve McQueen in the movie Bullitt (he drove a '68) and since that time, it has become one of the most sought after muscle cars in existence. This particular car was, is, and will always remain (according to owner Greg Smith) a down home California drag car. From the Fenton slotted wheels and 393 Windsor stroker, to the Mickey Thompson drag slicks out back, one look will tell you that this car is all business.





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.





1955 Ford Thunderbird: Back in Black -- /BIG MUSCLE
It's been in the same family for the better part of 50 years. Been modified with performance and weight savings in mind, and is one of the sleekest looking cars we've ever come across. This 1955 Ford Thunderbird is no secretaries car, but a purpose built award winning street machine that was built in a time before resto-modding old cars was all the rage.





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.





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.
