LMC Super Cuda 200 MPH!
log onto www.legendarymotorcar.com to see photos of the build! Lady Luck was on our side last week as the Legendary Team made its way to the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea, Michigan. An all night drive through a snow storm saw us pull into the proving grounds parking lot at the crack of dawn. It was cold and overcast but no sign of rain or snow. It looked like the weather would cooperate, the next hurdle was having MOPAR engineers check out the Cuda. The car passed with flying colors, testament to the sweat and dedication put in by everyone at Legendary over the last year. Then it was off to the black lake for some real world handling tests in preparation for the 4.75 mile oval and a crack a breaking the 200 mph mark. Both the Cuda and the Enzo look impressive on the track but once the sun began to come out late that morning the setting was perfect for our high speed run. I think we captured some spectacular footage of a once in a life time event. After a brief mishap, when the Cuda lost its windshield trim at 190 mph, Peter was ready to go. We could hear the Cuda coming long before we could see her, as the cars went by they sounded like jet fighters. Top speed 208 mph with still some leftwe did it!

Chip Foose 1965 Impala 'Impostor' Takes 2015 Ridler Award
The 63rd Annual Detroit Autorama selected this 1965 Impala, named the 'Impostor' as the 2015 Ridler Winner. This marks the fourth Ridler for Chip Foose and the team at Foose Design. For this creation, Chip purchased a brand now C5 Corvette from the dealership and drove it just 3 blocks before completely disassembling the car. Next he took a stock 1965 Impala and begun modifying the body by removing a total of 14 inches in length!. From there, the goal was to reinstall the complete stock drivetrain and features of the Corvette into the modified Impala body. Chip made it all happen, right down to the OnStar system. The vehicle is finished in BASF Glasurit 90-Line 'Impostor Pearl'.
