New Hood Pins from Ron Mangus Interiors

March 2nd, 2012

Tired of the traditional style of hood pins that rust, or lanyards that scratch the paint?

The Next Generation of Hood Pin Technology!

With just a push of a button, the hood is unlatched.  The button stays in the down position until re-latched, and then the button pops back up.  No more pins to keep up with!

Includes all installation hardware; for simple installation with basic tools.

Quik-Latch “Mini” is a multi-purpose quick release latch.

They are much smaller than the hood pins, but larger than a quarter.  They are 1 ¼ inch in diameter.

They can be used as fasteners on cars and air cleaners; on RV and boat cabinets.

The possibilities’ are endless!

Coffin Muffler®

March 2nd, 2012

The Coffin Muffler® is a very versatile and extremely effective product. Not only does it fit in almost any automobile application, it will fit pickups, tractors and nearly any other application you can dream up. It also works well with diesels, both cars and pickups.

The inside design of the coffin muffler allows engines to make more torque and more horsepower, yet still increasing fuel economy-all at the same time. the muffler is able to do this by freeing up the OEM (Original Equipment Manufactured), exhaust system. Basically it’s like the difference between blowing through a plastic straw and blowing through a garden hose; which one do you think allows air to escape faster and with less effort? All this results in longer engine life, snappier throttle responds, better fuel economy, and yes that aggressive sound we all love. A lot of people turn their heads on such products, until they hear about better fuel economy, in other words, saving money, gas, and the environment, everyone can do their part! The Coffin Muffler is a simple and affordable product almost anyone can reap benifits from.

Brandon Zambrano’s ‘10 Chevy Camaro

February 15th, 2012

Brandon Zambrano, owner of Saints Motorsports, set out to build a one-of-a-kind ride that was as at home cruising the boulevard as it was tearing up the track. Once he saw the new ‘10 Camaro he knew his search was over and ordered one of the first off the lot. He also knew that we were not going to be content with the ordinary styling or the stock performance, so doing what he does best, he turned to the custom market to shape this ride into the mean performance machine that he envisioned.

625 Street Demon Carburetor Makes Debut

February 2nd, 2012

The introduction of an all-new carburetor, especially in this millennium, has become increasingly rare. But Demon Carburetion has done just that. Named the 625 Street Demon, it is engineered for hot rods with stock to mildly modified engines.
In appearance, its cast aluminum construction exhibits smooth and flowing contours and in operation it accommodates either square- or spread-bore-pattern intake manifolds without adapters. It’s an easy replacement for any street four-barrel.
Developed from clean-sheet beginnings, the Street Demon features two potent 1-3/8in primary throttle bores, which contain triple-stack boost venturii. Two of the boosters are suspended across the bores in the conventional way; the third is neatly integrated into the throttle bore walls. Their purpose is calculated to produce superior fuel emulsification, to present crisp throttle response and drivability, and to provide pleasing fuel economy.
At the top of secondary bores a torsion spring-controlled air valve resides. Its function is to ensure seamless primary-to-secondary throttle response, regardless of the throttle opening rate. Its two distinctive, sloping contours are engineered for efficient cylinder-to-cylinder fuel distribution. Torsion spring adjustment of the valve is controlled by a screw on the end of its shaft axis.
At the bottom of the secondary bores a goggle valve (GVS™) resides. This innovative device delivers over twice the air flow of the primary bores, with an effect that can be both felt and heard.
The Street Demon’s fuel bowl, which is integrated with the main body, is available in either aluminum or an exclusive automotive-spec polymer. The polymer bowl demonstrates impressive hot-weather drivability and faster hot restarts by reducing heat transfer to the fuel by as much as 20 degrees Fahrenheit. To eliminate all potential leaks the bowl is devoid of plugged passages and the bowl gasket is placed above the fuel level.
A single fuel inlet ensures simple installation and two-stage metering rods accommodate most tuning requirements, without carburetor disassembly or removal. For cold starting, a proven electric-assist bimetal coil choke is provided.
Street Demons are available in three forms: all aluminum tumble-burnished, tumble-burnished with polymer fuel bowl, and all aluminum hand polished. Prices are $349.99, $379.99 and $449.99 respectively.

The Road Runner Rides Again

January 13th, 2012

Finished in Bronze Fire Poly, this Plymouth carries its heft and length pretty well. Built as a muscle car for the masses, the Road Runner sold many more units than others in its family did. With plenty of horsepower and a low cost of ownership, Plymouth nailed it with these cars.

A ’69 Survivor Stashed in the Surf City Garage

Opening up any book about the history of the automobile will inevitably reveal interesting stories about America’s most famous technological innovation. How cars became branded and named is history lesson in itself. One of the stories that has is fairly well known is how the Plymouth Road Runner came to see the light of day. Its namesake cartoon character emblazoned in many places on the car’s body and interior made Plymouth’s Road Runner easily identifiable. The Road Runner was introduced in 1968 as a mid-priced, intermediate-bodied muscle car and even had a horn that went “beep, beep,” just as the feathery cartoon character.

Classic Meets Modern in a Clean Package

January 10th, 2012

Owner: Patrick Collins; 1969 Chevrolet Camaro; Pembrooke Pines, FL

Going from modern luxury to classic muscle car can be a big hurdle to overcome. Heated seats, navigation and parking assistance had no place in the classic cars of the ‘60s. Back then, the only checkmark next to the word “power” on window stickers was by the engine. They were about one thing: blazing a trail of speed and torque down the highway—comfort and handling be damned. Patrick Collins of Pembrooke Pines, Florida, is a service manager at the nearby Lexus dealership. He is used to climbing in and out of high-end luxury vehicles all day long. When the weekend hits, he prefers to cruise town in something a bit more classic and American: his ‘69 Chevrolet Camaro built by the crew at Miranda Built in Deerfield Beach.
