February 26th, 2024

Fade to Black – 600HP Supercharged Shoebox Chevy Restomod

November 17th, 2023

Okay, you can’t talk about this car without some mention of the awesome paint work. The old pros at Kelly and Son Crazy Painters created this aesthetic delight of a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air coupe. It all begins with a black basecoat topped with various shades of Raspberry Candy and Black faded to absolute perfection. This thing tickles my eyes. Underneath that beautiful paint and bodywork is a maze of aftermarket retro body panels bolted to a Roadster Shop chassis. The suspension is also from Roadster Shop. The brakes are Baer (four-wheel disc), and the wheels are Budnik. Under the Read More

The next step was installation of a Read More

950HP AWD Volkswagen GTI – The Ultimate Street Sleeper

July 27th, 2023

While attending the Doorslammers event in jolly old Santa Pod, England, 1320 Video encountered what may well be the ultimate street sleeper. After an impressive burnout and a 9.5-second opening pass, Jay was drawn to this unimposing hatchback coupe. Join the fun as the proud car owner gives up the walk around. It all begins with the custom-tailored Volkswagen Four-Motion drivetrain. Without this feature, the car could not appear as innocuous as it does today. The ability to transfer huge power to all-four corners is essential to sneakiness. Front and rear independent suspension doesn’t hurt either. Under the bonnet (as Read More

World Record Breaking Corvette ZR1

July 13th, 2023

Seems like an unwritten rule, if you port superchargers for a living, you must have the baddest car in town. That’s the way the guys at Kong Performance think. Of course, they went supercharged with a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. Kong handled the supercharger work and sent the rest out to Late Model Performance (LMP) for the royal treatment. This is how it all turned out. The centerpiece of this Chevy is under the hood. It’s an all-aluminum 7.0-liter LSR motor. The cylinder heads are Frankenstein with titanium valves. Engine internals include a forged crankshaft, custom ground camshaft as well as Read More
