The Black Devils – 1969 Dodge Daytona and the 1968 Dodge Charger

1
The 1969 Dodge Daytona and 1968 Dodge Charger are real beauties. What is more interesting about these two vehicles is that they belong to the host of “Big Muscle” – Mike Muston. The fans of the show probably showed interested in getting introduced to the popular host, so the crew decided to conclude the second season with the Muscular Mopars by Musto.
We must say that these vehicles are real monsters. If we refer to power, performance and technology the date of this Dodges is long gone, but they have been upgraded just to feel that grandioseness.

1970 Chevy Chevelle – The Professional Race Car That Every Driver Wants

1970-chevrolet-chevelle-front-view-headlights
Alex Figge, pronounced “figgy” has dedicated part of his life to driving race cars, out of the world employment, and has been on the driving seat of myriad vehicles and raced on almost every course configuration imaginable. The portfolio of this man ranges from go-karts to IndyCars, from sports cars to 5 different manufacturers to Trophy Trucks off-road that was where we saw him in 2014 for the last time.

Because this guy is inevitably drawn to race machinery, it would not be normal for him to aspire to something almost as formidable for the street? Because drivers do not normally twist a wrench and do their thing exclusively, it would suit him to secure some outside contracts. Alex shaded his eyes and started to sweep the horizon.

He said that he knew he wanted to do a 1970 Chevy Chevelle and he started searching for businesses that can help him. When he met the Roadster Shop in Mundelein, Illinois, his search ended. They were building the highest performance and most innovative muscle cars around by far. He didn’t even call another shop.

While huge engine output is preferable, to Alex, a correctly prepared suspension/frame holds just as much import so it can be quite able to assume the terror of the engine with aplomb. The balanced chassis is critical on the circuit, and Alex would expect nothing less in this street machine. Phil Gerber from The Roadster Shop got the picture and started to work.

The Fast Track chassis from Roadster Shop is a beast – staunches bending and mitigates torsional stress like a maniac. Also, it is designed to keep everything underneath right above the rocker panel height, assuring a clean, sanitary approach. With this huge ladder, RS includes tubular control arms, a splined 1.25 inch diameter antisway bar and Penske double-adjustable dampers encircled by Hyperco coils. The back of the chassis assumes Hyperco coils and Penske dampers, and a Panhard rod locates the rear axle and a simple parallel 4 bar system, deeming a rear sway bar superfluous. The ‘rails are kicked in and readily receive a 345 section tire. Billet C6 spindles and Z06 hubs are supervised by a quick – ratio rack steering system.

That critical frictional coefficient is provided by a Wilwood system that posts 13 inch discs, 6 piston calipers in form, while 12 inch 4 caliper units in the rear. The rims and tires are Michelin Super Sport, 345/30 and 295/30, on Forgeline SC3C, 19×12 and 18×10 rims, which have been wafted with a coat of Transparent Smoke.

Alex and RS in the matter of acceleration selected a 427 Cu. In. LS3 that comes from Turn Key Engine Supply that keeps the standard bore of 4.065 inches, but uses a 4.125 inch stroke. The bottom end spins a 4340 crankshaft and also H-beam connection rods. When the domes of the Mahle forgins are suited to the 70 cc combustion chambers of the LS3 castings, they produce a compression ratio of 10.7:1. Specs for the hydraulic roller cam are healing, but the system keeps 5/16 inch pushrods, double valve springs, a 1.7:1 rocker arm ratio, and chromoly retainers.

The induction is composed of a FAST injector and an Edelbrock intake manifold drawing through a mechanical 90 mm throttle body. The system is observed by a MEFI4b/MEF15 ECU and also it is fed by a Rick’s/Vaporworks CTS-V fuel pump. The billet rocker covers with space for internal coil packs are provided by Wegner Motorsports and also the billet serpentine accessory drive system. RS finished the engine with stainless-coated 1 7/8 inch primaries that are plumbed into three inch stainless steel pipes underlined by an X-pipe and Borla XR-1 mufflers. The exhaust finishes at the center exit in the bumper that was custom built. The cooling contingent is equipped with a Vintage Air Gen VI Magnum HVAC system and a Ron Davis aluminum core. To contain the output of that 7.9 liter engine, RS and Alex decided on a complete Centerforce system – Dual Friction 10.5 inch discs, flywheel, a Tremec T56 Magnum and a pressure plate. It delivers 635 horsepower and 580 lb ft of torque that ends up at the Strange Engineering 9 inch that was fitted with 3.90:1 gears and a Truetrac differential.

For the swaddling phase, the Chevy Chevelle was brought to Paul Atkins Interiors located in Hanceville, Alabama. The guys there built simple but sophisticated quarters, but the work performed was not so easy. The Atkins custom-built persona radiates from the understated door panels, fluid console, the sleek and the rear bench seat, which matches the Recaro Sporster buckets –all swathed in leather. Atkins also stretched the headliner in suede-like Alcantara. The black silence is shattered by an Alpine amplifier, a Kicker PX1502 head unit, and Alpine SPS 5 inch speakers in front and in the rear 6x9s. No five-point harness, no roll cage. This is the street car owned by Alex, and she don’t race.

We love the look of the Chevelle. It emanates, it doesn’t broadcast, and is something in which the Roadster Shop shines. The basic form of the Chevelle is unaltered and enriched by subtle but important modification. Underneath the hood bulge, they smoothed the firewall, but notched it softly in order to pocket the windshield wiper motor. RS prolonged the inner fenders to better accommodate and also the RS upper control arms in order to frame that engine.
Up front on the shiny side of the Chevelle, the Roadster Shop built a lip spoiler, filled the center to smooth the expanse, tucked the bumper in order to make the appearance of the car wider, while in the rear they built a custom roll pan and tucked and narrowed the bumper to accept the pleasantly strange center exhaust exit. The lads fussed long over the envelope until Tyler Krause didn’t lay down the PPG Audi Lava Gray coating. When it had dried, Chris Gray from RS anointed it with offset ghost graphics.

Alex said that the reason why he choose the Chevelle is because he loves the muscle car era in that country as it pertains to the relationships of the Americans with their car and driving. According to Alex, the Chevelle is unapologetically American and badass. There are no problems with drifts and burnouts in that thing, said Alex.

The 1965 Impala “Impostor” by Chip Foose is a Corvette in Disguise

1
You can say anything that you want about Chip Foose and all the scandals he has been involved in, but this man really knows how to build a wonderful car, especially when the classic bodies meet the new technology. Now you can greet the 1965 Impala “Impostor”, which is a project that took a time to finish it and also won the 2015 Ridler Award at the annual Autorama held in Detroit, Chip’s 4th.

This car belongs to Elma and Don of Abbotsford, British Colombia. They desired something that resembled the Impala that they drove on their honeymoon to Disneyland. Don bought the car when he was 17, so loving memories are bound to be involved.
Old school Muscle meets the New School Hustle
Rather than using a certain Impala chassis, Chip decided to purchase a 2008 C6 Corvette and he spend a lot of his time in stripping it down to where the body of the Impala should fit. Because this is Foose, nothing is left stock, so the modifications were made all over the place – flushed exhaust tips, chopped roof, chrome delete and many others.
The body of the Impala was shortened 14 inches – about 8 inches from the roof, and 6 inches from the trunk and rear quarter panels. But it is not really that small, because the frame of the Corvette had to be stretched 8 in. to fit.
The LS3 V8 engine get a Magnuson supercharged and also one of those awesome engine covers painted like the vehicle and shaped as a bird beak.
Ridler cars are built to a completely other level of perfection. Even those things that can’t be seen, like the rear axle or transmission case had to be matched to the style of the car and finished perfectly.
Foose said that they are not building their dream car, they are building Elma and Don’s dream car. Their goal was to make every dream come true, and one of their dreams was to win the Ridler and now they just did that.

The mystery of the buried Dino Ferrari is finally solved


Maybe you have already read the story about the 1974 Dino Ferrari 246 GTS found buried in 1978 in someone’s yard in Los Angeles. So here we have one documentary with the current owner of the Dino.
Whoever buried the car had thrown a few rugs on the top in order to protect the Italian machine. Dennis Carroll, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s detective dragged the rugs, wiped with his hand a smear of dirt from the windshield and peered through. There aren’t bodies.
A sweep of the trunk and the interior turned up no contraband or drugs either, but a run of the plates proved what his gut told him. The 1974 Dino Ferrari 246 GTS, the dug-up sports car, was on the LAPD’s stolen list.
Here follows the lady reporter that comes from the LA Times. The reporter wanted to know how the department of the Sheriff knew that the Dino was down there. Carroll and Sgt. Joe Sabas, his partner, crusty veterans of the burglary and narcotics beats had the answer. Some kids were playing in the dirt and found it. Something like that.
1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS 1

Yes, sure. It is always better to make up a story than to compromise a good snitch. You can’t know who knows what about whom there, and now – regarding the sports car that comes from a backyard hole – they knew Jack squat. After that the snitch adds a twist of lime – an insurance trickery.
The snitch says that the owner of the Dino had hired some guys to make it disappear. Their plan was to snatch it up on that night on December 7, while the owner of the car was at the Brown Derby on Wilshire with his wife sipping martinis.
Then the owner of the Dino would feed the cops a fanciful tale. The Dino had been a gift for his wife.
The cops had a joke after sending the owner on his way – Poor bastard won’t be getting laid tonight – they write it up like a “righteous theft”. Rosendo Cruz of Alhambra, California.
Then the hired men should chop up the car, fence the components, and sink the rest somewhere off the coast. So, Cruz would cop the check from the Farmers Insurance. But the plan didn’t work out like that.
The hired men clipped the car off Wilshire, but they fell really hard for the Italian machine. This story reminds of the Huntsman and Snow White – they couldn’t land the dagger.
So, they only torched out the rear badge for some reason, buried the car in some yard in West Athens (someone says it was in an old mechanic’s pit). The man got his check, but they never came back for her. At least almost 35 years ago, according to the snitch.
The current owner of the 1974 Dino 246 GTS is Brad Howard. His story comes after the Farmers Insurances sold the car to AraManoogian, a Los Angeles businessman. When Howard heard about the car he made him an offer, and in the following video you the see the revival of the Dino and the post-restoration life.
