Down South Jukin’ – Texas Cash Days

April 17th, 2024

Speaking with an accent akin to my own, the iconic band known as Lynyrd Skynyrd said they were headed “Down South Jukin’ and looking for some peace of mind”. These crazy South Texas gearheads are after anything but peace. It’s pandemonium they seek in the form of a Mini Texas Cash Days (about a dozen cars) on the streets (of Mexico). Shall we investigate further? Walking past a turbo LS swapped BMW, our initial encounter is with a man in a Silverado pickup. He’s running a 408 cubic-inch V8 motor with aftermarket cylinder heads and a 98-millimeter turbocharger. The automatic Read More

This video takes a look at a grudge match between a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air and a 1931 Ford Model A. Both vehicles have been dramatically altered for drag racing purposes. Since both cruisers have the potential to lay down 8-second quarter-mile passes, they are each considered pretty fast. Let’s have a closer look.

Audi SQ5 vs Mustang GT – 50 to 150 Street Hits

March 26th, 2024

There is no way that a compact SUV can run with a modified muscle car, right? No way that a grocery getter can hang in there with a hard-charging V8 sports car that has a stripped-out cockpit. It ain’t happening, correct? A decade ago, the answer would have been a resounding “yes”. Fortunately, today’s SUV will not be denied the chance to shine. The SUV in question is the 2020 Audi SQ5 with Quattro all-wheel drive. In factory condition, the SQ5 is not terribly impressive from a performance standpoint. However, the all-wheel drivetrain and turbocharged V6 offer a firm foundation Read More
