This 1977 Chevrolet Chevette Is Dead-Stock And Ready For A Re-Powering!

Recently, I got to spend more time than I ever wanted with a Hyundai Santa Fe. And for the most part, I hated it. I hated the blandness, anonymity-promising nature of the little gray crossover. I...

This 1980 Dodge Mirada Could Be The Perfect Never-Was Pro Stock Tribute For Next Year’s Drag Week!

Even by weirdo Mopar standards, the Dodge Mirada is a strange duck. Built for four years, slower than cold molasses even on it’s best foot forward, and having the unfortunate reputation as the...

Long-Roof Rarity: This 1972 AMC Ambassador SST Would Make A Neat Fall Cruiser

If you are sitting here reading this, chances are good that you aren’t at the 2017 LS Fest in Bowling Green. I will be, and like past years, I’ll be looking at every possible vehicle that...

How Would You Build It? Or Them? These Two Opel Mantas Could Be Wicked!

Drag Week is coming up fast, and there is one car that I have always loved seeing: Mike Angerer’s 1974 Opel Manta. My heart might be set on the 1980s Mantas due to their Group B Rally...

This 1978 Dodge Power Wagon Is MINT! Rubber Floors, Four-Speed, And Desert Kept!

Shine Runner Special: This 1967 Plymouth Fury Is A Big-Block, Four-Speed, Four Door Surprise

A four-door big block sedan from 1967 is cool. It’s not completely noteworthy and you can keep your dreams of collector car auction gold mining to yourself, but any big-block sedan is worth...

This 1971 AMC Javelin Is One Of The Wildest Customs We’ve Seen, And Can Be Yours!

Question: Who here wants the Hot Wheels car come to life, like the one they had when they were a kid? The one that promised stacks on the engine, a flip-up hood, candy red paint, and a slight bit of...

To Innocent To Die: This 1984 Ford Mustang Is Sitting In A Copart Lot As A Donation!

Money No Object: You Don’t Have The Guts To Put This 1988 Ford Thunderbird SCCA Racer Onto The Streets, Do You?

The late 1980s Ford Thunderbirds are sorely underrated outside of NASCAR fans. Why is that? The roundy-round folks know why this car rules: 212.809 miles per hour at Talladega Speedway in 1987. Yes,...

Because NASCAR? This Pontiac Grand Prix Packs Two Homologation Specials Into One!

The 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona and the 1986 Pontiac 2+2 actually have quite a bit in common. Think about it…both are factory homologation specials designed to whip up on NASCAR tracks. Both...
