May 30th, 2024

The Roadster Shop has done it again. Thanks to Shawn (from Autotopia LA) for bringing us this rolling masterpiece. Let’s join Jeremy Gerber (RS) and our man Shawn for a detailed look at the ins-and-outs of this banging Chevy. First of all, this car is part of the Roadster Shop Survivor Series. In short, that implies that the entire build is more about function than about fit and finish. This is a driver’s car meant to get the job done on a daily basis. First impressions: Yes, that bulge in the hood is custom fabricated sheet metal. The owner requested Read More

April 27th, 2024

The 2022 Lamborghini Huracan EVO featured in this video could be called “Check Out Time”. When it’s time to check out – this thing is gone.

2000+HP Twin Turbo Audi R8 V10 Plus

April 9th, 2024

Izzy’s Back and he brought a maximum performance twin turbo Audi for our amusement. Last time that Shawn (from Autotopia LA) got in the car with this guy (it was a 1,900hp Nissan GT-R), his backside tried to eat the bottom half of the seat cushion. He was so scared! This time the car is even faster. Shawn better take a half a baby aspirin and grab his crying towel. It’s gonna be a wild ride. The base platform is a 2018 Audi R8 V10 Plus. When Izzy got the car, it was bone stock. Modified by Sheepy Race, this Read More

1200HP Supercharged Volvo Wagon

April 1st, 2024

Well, Shawn from Autotopia LA has found another hot rod over which we gearheads can drool. Owned by Griffin Steinfeld, this 1200hp supercharged monster is delivered in an unlikely package. Minus the wheel tubs and massive rear tires, one might assume that this Volvo 240DL Wagon is just your ordinary grocery getter. The front suspension and brakes are factory. Period. The rear suspension setup is custom four-link with fully adjustable shocks. The front wheels are also stock Volvo. The rears are Weld Racing. Griffin is running a 370 cubic-inch GM overhead cam LS V8 engine. It’s professionally built by Hustler Read More

Smiley’s 1970 Mustang Drift Car – Coyote Powered Monster

March 19th, 2024

Fishtailing and eating pavement at will, Smiley’s 1970 Ford Mustang is a family artifact that has finally reached fruition. Grandpa Smiley originally bought the Mustang and handed it down to Smiley’s dad who passed it to Smiley a few years ago (when he was sixteen). Unfortunately, Smiley’s dad has passed away since then. From what we can see, Smiley took a firm hand and set about correcting all those Ford mistakes. What he has created is a daily driver that is a rolling work of art. Rolling on ESR wheels wrapped in Toyo rubber – they are 19 x 9.5 Read More

Blown Small Block Swapped 1966 Chevy Nova Restomod

March 4th, 2024

This is the story of Justin Brown and his restomod 1966 Chevy Nova. A military trained mechanic by trade, Justin purchased this Nova as a fresh build (online, sight-unseen). To make a long story short, he wound up rebuilding the car that had been put together in a haphazard fashion. This is how it went down. Fresh off a tour in Afghanistan, Jason takes cross country delivery of the Nova and gets ready to load up the kids and take a test ride. Much to his chagrin, the front end is popping and cracking like a jalopy. After a total Read More

At a curb weight of 2,485-pounds, with a 7.3-liter V8 onboard, this Superformance 1964 Shelby Cobra MkIII roadster is truly a monster.

A big thumbs up to Tony’s Hot Rod Shop (Wisconsin) and Kegler’s Custom Upholstery (interior work) for producing this truly extraordinary restomod 1969 Camaro. Car owner Gino intercepted this car as a build in progress. Riding on a Chris Alston Chassisworks chassis, the Camaro had a firm foundation. Fully adjustable coilover shocks from Barry Controls equalize the weight on all four corners. Under the hood is the focal point of the Apocalypse Camaro. It’s a supercharged LT5 6.2-liter V8 from a 2019 ZR9 Corvette. Very rare and highly sought after, the LT5 boasts such features as a dry sump lubrication Read More
