Thursday, June 10th, 2010

Doug stands next to his project and heaves a sigh of relief. She is finally done and ready to do battle at the shows and on the road course.

How do most high-caliber muscle car projects start? When viewing the finished pavement bruiser of a ’66 Ford Fairlane 500 constructed by owner Doug Shultz only one word came to mind: vision.

Orange Bang – Classic Lines and Corvette Power

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

When it comes to classic muscle cars the Chevelle is certainly one of the most popular platforms to build upon. Some take the restored approach and can’t bear the thought of separating a family of parts that has lived under the same hood and underbelly since the day the car rolled off the assembly line. The whole numbers matching concept is great for the enthusiast who wants his or her car to hold up under scrutiny from the most discerning purist. The other type of enthusiast not only wants a great looking muscle car, but also one they can beat the snot out of every time they climb behind the steering wheel. (more…)

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

Most muscle car fanatics are loyal to one brand and will defend that brand no matter what the cost.

Goode is a retried football coach and a few years back while still coaching football, he had what he calls a “cardiac episode.” In anticipation of bad news from the doctors Goode sold his 2004 Corvette ragtop and settled up his bills.

Air Ride Technologies Packs 430-HP into a Low, Smooth and Cool Package

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

There is something to be said for a car that gets driven and driven hard. Trailer queen cars tend to lose their novelty when the owner only gets to pilot them from the ramps of the trailer to the garage. Air Ride Technologies out of Jasper, Indiana, has always been conscious of building cars that will turn heads wherever they go, but will still absorb the hardest thrashing that can be thrown at them. If you have been to any Goodguys Rod and Custom Association event across the country, you have undoubtedly seen their Auto Cross track and the various machines wearing their suspension trickery that get stuffed into corners with the tachometer banging off the redline. Company owner Bret Voelkel has always built cars that provoke the drool factor, but also hit the asphalt with rear rubber smoking and the horses running wild. (more…)
