Crertm6 Exposure Prrt2

So I set about creating a website for Central Muscle Cars, aiming to have it ready for the start of the inaugural season. I created individual pages for each car and driver containing vital info such as engine size and power, but also personalising the drivers by getting them to add a few details about themselves. I knew photos were important, because car people love photos. So I found some photographers who would be attending each of the CMC meetings and asked that they contribute to the website at no charge, in return for exposure. Then I wrote a race review after each round and linked everything together with news items about cars being built, race previews and so on, so the website was constantly changing and people would visit it regularly, building up some sort of fan base. Then I wrapped the whole thing up in an attractive package that was easy to navigate and enjoyable to view. Sounds normal now, but back then nobody was doing this sort of stuff.

Especially among the muscle cars, this was one of the nicest offerings Leake put up in Dallas. How so Uniqueness, first of all A Road Runner convertible with a 383, plus a TorqueFlite and, lo, actual factory air. And on the wheels were simple deluxe hubcaps, rather than the now-resto-standard Magnum 500s. When's the last time you glommed a lineup like that It was all handsomely completed and ultra-clean, reflected, literally, by the undercarriage mirrors on the auction floor. What we're assuming here is that the Road Runner's honest authenticity, resisting the urge for a Showboat -sty e overdo or tribute treatment, slowed the bidding. Too bad this was a great and unusual treatment of the theme.

New Cars Vs Old Stuff

I've always liked straight-line fast cars. I've also always liked cars that handle well and scoot through turns. I've been willing to sacrifice a lot of comfort and future hearing health to get there. And for me, getting there has always involved muscle car-era street machines.

Specialty Market Support

Old bangers, were actually well-maintained legitimate collector cars and trucks *or which owners were given a fraction of their true value to put towards the cost of a new car. Thanks to persistent lobbying by the SAN and it's members, cars more than 25 years-old were exempted from the programme, but still, a sizeable number of decent future collectibles and solid project cars were lost, while essentially nothing was gained, save for a short term spike in new car sales, that is now all but forgotten. Yet it could have been worse. There are plenty of other laws out there that target hobbyists, from incperable vehicles (some states want simply to be given the power to seize and dispose of project cars on your own property if they deem them an eyesore), to rules governing engine swaps or exhaust noise - the list goes on.

Corvette Gt1 Championship Edition

TRENDS FOR 2009 MUSCLE CARS AND STREET PERFORMANCE SEMA polled enthusiasts in sanctioned racing events to find out what will be popular in 2009. Those participating ranged from owners of domestics to Japanese, Korean, European, and Japanese brands. SEMA learned that when asked which segment enthusiasts see as being the most popular in 2009, muscle car was the number-one pick, no matter what car those polled owned. This sentiment is significant, as vehicle owners from distinct psychographics seem to agree on a single trend. SEMA explains.

Some things never change

For 3 decades YearOne has been involved in the muscle car hobby. And it's no surprise that we've seen plenty of changes over that time. More importantly, some things have remained exactly as they were a generation ago - like YearOne's commitment to providing automotive enthusiasts with the very best parts and accessories, and backing them with the best customer service in the business. That's the way we've done it for 30 years, and that's the way we will always do it. We feel so strongly about this, that we're even bringing back our original, 30-year-old logo. Muscle cars will always be cool. Disco will always suck. And YearOne will always be your best source of parts and service. Proving yet again that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

We Love The Raised White Letters

Why You Care How could you not The raised white-letter tire Is as iconic to muscle cars as Babe Ruth is to baseball. Look at any of our back issues and you'll see a handful of cars rolling something with raised white letters. They've klnda gone by the wayside with the current trend toward larger wheels, but the appeal is still there. M T's new Sportsman Is an all-season radial tire that Is rated to 118 mph. It is currently only available for 15-inch wheels in sizes ranging from 225 60R15 up to 275 60R15. We lobbied the M T guys for a 17-Inch RWL tire, and they said they may consider It If they get enough requests. How Much Pricing starts at 95.00 for the small tire. The big 275s are only 10.00 more.

New Sheetmetal Is Finally Available For Your Bbody

For years, restoring a car meant trying to find good, used sheetmetal to replace the rusted stuff that always seemed to be included with a recently acquired project car. Over the last couple of years, more and more new sheetmetal has begun to show up with vendors, making restorations a lot easier than in the past. But, is this new metal as good as the old stuff I mean, you may not have to fix rust, but what's the quality like

The All-American muscle car is, if trudi be told, more Monaro dian Camaro, since it is essentially a Commodore Coupe.

Think back to when you first got into this scene, planning the build-up of your first project car. Like a lot of us, chances are you dreamed of making it a monster able to pick off big-block domestics in a straight line, out-corner high-dollar exotics, or maybe even pull hard enough on a few crotch rockets to leave their riders afraid to give chase. Hell, the technology is out there, and if all the inked features of today's most wildly-modified feature cars have taught us anything, it's that owning a time-attack-winning EVO, nine-second Civic or 1,500whp Supra is only a few months and several thousand dollars away . . . right

Three Locations To Serve Your Restoration Parts Needs

There's Dynacorn. This American based company are producing complete body shells of cars like the Mustang. For about 20k you could end up with a brand spanking, straight and unmolested shell landed to your garage. More from Dynacorn a bit later on.

Shelby F150 Super Snake

Throwdown implies testosterone, competition, trash talking, and bravado, but what started out as a genuine competition turned into a day filled with camaraderie, laughter, and everyone having a great time. Trucks were meant to work hard, but so often, after customizing them for years, truck owners don't drive them aggressively, won't push the limits, and are more worried about scratching the paint than doing smoky burnouts. Look at the trend in muscle cars and street rods, owners and builders are driving them, and driving them hard. It's about time we as the truck enthusiast community put our money where our mouth's are and drive our trucks until the wheels fall off.

Car Club East Los Angeles

Honda Scoopy Club

Bachelors Car Club redefined itself as a muscle car club under the direction of President Albert, who drove a 1964 Chevy Malibu, as well as Club Vice President Mando, who owned a 1968 Plymouth Roadrunner. In 1972, The Bachelors Car Club became The Bachelors LTD Car Club under the direction of President Nick Daneri. Daneri sat behind the wheel of a 1970 Custom Chevy Camaro, and his Vice President, Ron Gomez, followed his Chevy lead with a 1958 Chevy Impala. Growing pains left the car club facing an identity crisis and discontentment among its members. President Nick Daneri and VP Ron Gomez felt that The Bachelors Car Club should focus on becoming the cornerstone of the up and coming Lowrider scene. Nick's younger brother Dominic Daneri was a major liaison in the planning and building of the Bachelors LTD Car Club, helping them organize and seek out prospective members for the new club. They found fifteen young men who shared Nick and Ron's vision, and new plaques and attire were...

Car Too Expensive For Sensible Folks

No sage could have forecast the fat cash that would exchange hands for American muscle cars 40 years after they left showrooms. The confluence of limited production, high desirability, legendary performance, and the passing of time would transform the way we viewed such clearly outdated technology. Take the '70 Plymouth Hemi Cuda. It originally sold for about 6,000, yet today transacts to well-heeled, nostalgia-soaked baby boomers for about 180,000 or more in the right condition. About 651 Hemi Cudas were built in 1970. You read Import Tuner, so you give a frog's ass about the Hemi Cuda, but their shitty ox-cart handling and single-digit fuel economy mean nothing to farts old enough to remember when Playboy was good for spanking, who still consider them the ultimate automotive wet dream.

Craig Tkach Waits For A Mysterious Challenger To See The Light Of

Craig decided years ago that his profession would be to run into burning buildings and try to save lives. What better way to relax from this hazardous job than to drive around in a muscle car Well, Craig has always been a car guy and heavily influenced by his friend Bob a name usually preceded by the words Super Bee. As you would guess, Bob was very much a Mopar nut and influenced Craig's purchase. This meant a Mopar was next on his list. His yearning may have also been influenced by the old, tattered Challenger that happened to be sitting on the side of the road on a farm down his street. I used to drive to work and look over at it every time, he says. It was

Getting Oily With Your Classic Ford Made Easy

Snapper, Jon boughtthis 1600GTXLR around four years ago as a relatively-solid project car. So far he's removed the vinyl roof, and is in the process of repairing the scuttle panel andA-pillars, prior to fitting some new-old stock wings. As a fan of '60s American muscle cars, the Capri will be lowered over a set of 15 inch, American Racing five-spokes, and the engine bay has already been prepped to take a small-block Ford V8. Last issue, we began what seems a daunting task of rebuilding die scuttle panel uf our Mk 1 Capri project car. This appeared to be fairly straightforward 011 the outside with a just a slither of rust, but, behind it was a cavern of rot threatening to terminate the car. We bought a repair section from F.x-Prcsscd Panels, which we'll cut up to use, but the remainder we need to fabricate thus we incorporated some of the more common areas of panel making, which we've found we've needed to use with surprising frequency throughout this bodywork scries.

Weve Got Your Bailout Ready

We've been flying at 33,000 feet for the last nine hours and nobody has a clue what to expect. My travel partners are freelance photographer David Newhardt, filmmaker Mark Mclnnis, Classic Design Concepts owner George Huisman, automotive designer Tom Tjaarda, Ford designers Camilo Pardo and Kyle Evans, and Quality Metalcraft owner Michael Chef Chetcuti. All we know is we're going to drive a handful of Mustangs through India while a film crew documents the adventure in a promotional effort for a new turnkey muscle car called the Equus. How I got here is still not completely clear.

Suspension And Brake Upgrades

Even the earliest '84 C4 suspension is superior to those In any '60s or '70s muscle car, so right out of the box the Corvette offers dramatic opportunities for a killer track car. But any good deal on a C4 will also include at least 100,000 miles of abuse. The best approach would be a simple upgrade of the existing ball joints and suspension bushings. Along with the suspension rebuild, we'd go with at least Bilstein replacement shocks, or you could upgrade to full-race double-adjustable shocks from QA1 or Konl, for example. Then there are the more exotic modifications that we can save for a later date, but all these simple mods will only improve handling for a relatively minor investment.

Braided Brake Hose Kits

Classic Tube has DOT-approved, StopFlex braided stainless steel hose kits for nearly everything from '60s muscle cars to new Vettes, but individual hoses can also be made to spec for custom applications. StopFlex hoses are significantly stronger than stock hoses thanks to Teflon liners, a Kevlar braid covered with stainless steel braid, and crimp swage fittings. The result is no volumetric expansion in the hose under pressure, which results in a much firmer pedal feel and increased braking efficiency. Price Varies by application
