Hot Rod Spits Flames Out of The Tailpipes


Camaro SS Gets Knight Rider Treatment


In 2008, the hit 80s television show Knight Rider returned to television, but it was doomed to fail from the start. Why do we say that? Simply put, Knight Rider replaced the Pontiac Trans Am based K.I.T.T. with a Shelby GT500, and fans just didn’t dig it enough. If only the producers had waited another year or two to begin filming, they could have used a proper successor to the original Knight Rider: a fifth-generation Camaro SS.

Alas, a Camaro K.I.T.T. in the new Knight Rider never came to 21st century television, and we’re left wondering “What if?” Well, thanks to some clever editing and a dedicated Knight Rider fan named Gabe, we at least have some idea of what a K.I.T.T. Camaro might look like.

K.I.T.T. was originally based on the then-new third-generation Pontiac Trans Am, and it was all blacked out, lowered, and had the trademark red-lit hood scoop light thing that everyone knows but no one can describe. The new Camaro integrates said light perfectly, and in many ways the fifth-generation Chevy muscle car fits the K.I.T.T. profile even better.

The new Camaro looks more aggressive than the Mustang, and more muscular too if you ask us. All blacked-out, it looks like the bouncer or hitman of the highway, and besides the addition of an aftermarket chin spoiler and trunk spoiler, as well as some blacked-out wheels, this Camaro retains its factory-granted identity. It’s a fitting successor to the original Knight Rider, and perhaps it’s time this 80s classic got one last shot at the small screen.

2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 & GT350R Racetrack Test Drive


Mustang has always been about power. The 2016 models continue in that tradition. Each engine delivers at least 300 horsepower.
• The 3.7L V6 offers up 300 hp and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. Standard on V6 Fastback model.
• The 2.3L EcoBoost® engines churns out 310 hp* and 320 lb.-ft. of torque.* Standard on EcoBoost® and EcoBoost Premium models.
• The 5.0L V8 kicks out 435 hp* and 400 lb.-ft. of torque.* Standard on GT and GT Premium models.
• The 5.2L V8 delivers 526 hp and 429 lb.-ft. of torque. Standard on the Shelby GT350®
Available launch control and class-exclusive** available Electronic Line-Lock enhance the performance feel of the Pony car, while available driving modes allow you to dial in the handling dynamics to your liking.

• Powertrain
The heart and soul of this beast lives in the 5.2L V8 engine with a flat-plane crank that produces 526 horsepower. It’s bolted to a world-class TREMEC® 3160 6-speed manual transmission and you have a car that delivers 429 lb.-ft. of torque.

• Chassis and suspension
The MagneRide™ Damping System monitors and adjusts itself thousands of times per second for a dynamic, adrenaline-fueled driving experience. But with our obsession for detail, we just couldn’t stop there. Our attention to detail drove us all the way down to which way the springs coiled; therefore, requiring new lower control arms. This racer was designed, engineered and built so the springs, sway bars and dampers work together as one finely tuned system. We also added new lightweight chassis components and a set of Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport tires wrapped around lightweight, yet incredibly stiff, aluminum wheels. So yeah, the Shelby GT350® delivers a special rush when you get behind the wheel.

• Braking
The foundation of any sports car is undoubtedly the brakes; therefore, brakes are a major part of the GT350 magic. So we teamed up front and rear Brembo® calipers with cross-drilled, two-piece, highly-engineered brake rotors. The huge 394mm (15.5”) rotors up front and 380mm (14.9”) rotors in the back complete this tight, hardworking system that gives GT350 its well-earned track cred.

• Aerodynamics
Balancing downforce while minimizing aerodynamic drag is always one of the biggest challenges a team of car designers can face. But Ford did it with a unique, detailed approach that centered on making it imperative that every single component play a major part in the total overall performance of the system. It’s a very hard thing to pull off, but our team of designers and engineers wouldn’t settle for less. So it’s not just that the GT350 has wide aluminum front fenders and a unique aluminum hood. It’s also that the front and rear fascias, splitter, rockers and rear valance with integrated diffuser all work together as a team – each and every one of them.
What truly sets this Beast apart is that the Shelby GT350® isn’t just a combination of “go fast” parts – any tuner can build one of those. The GT350 is a specifically engineered machine, where the components work dynamically together as one and perform to a world-class level on all fronts, as well as meeting Ford durability standards. It’s all due to the focus of the Ford Performance Engineers to make a car that delivers thrills like this, yet still possess everyday driveability. Quite simply, the GT350 was engineered so you will say – from the race track to winding back roads, the GT350 can do it all.

Bad to the Bone 1200hp Pro Street 1970 Chevelle SS


Clay the owner of this brutal Chevy Chevelle SS has been into hot rodding for many years and had a huge passion for muscle cars since high school. He bought this Chevrolet several years ago from Ebay as an original 454 Big Block Super Sport car and when you see the insane mods Clay has done to it, you know we are talking about a hard core muscle car enthusiast. Everything from the sinister Pro street exterior look, the awesome racing style interior to the nasty 604 cubic inch V8, which wasn’t powerful enough so Clay added a Nitrous to squeeze over 1200 horses out of it is just off the hook and on top of that the car is street legal. Scottie has done an interview with him where he shares the entire story of his Pro Street 1970 Chevelle.

Striking Ford GT Custom By Gas Monkey Garage


Regardless of how much you agree (or disagree) with Ford’s designs, the Ford GT is one machine which you cannot ignore. Drawing inspiration from the GT40, Ford’s iconic racing car which dominated the bedroom posters of the 1960s, the stock Ford GT itself is quite astonishing. So how to improve upon a work of art?

blacked out ford gt custom

The recently unveiled at SEMA custom-made Ford GMGT created by the Gas Monkey Garage crew shows you how beautiful a beast can possibly look. The original Ford GT40, the one which proved itself in competitions back in the 1960s against the likes of Ferrari, has its roof-line resting at just 40 inches off the ground. The roof-line of the Ford GT sports car by Gas Monkey Garage, with a little help from AccuAir suspension, rests at an unbelievable 38 inches off the ground! That is just a couple of inches over three feet.

To make this machine drivable, the suspension can be adjusted to three levels: the first setting is when the vehicle is at rest, adorning the showcase; the second level raises it a few inches to avoid touching the road during slight slopes while the third level gives enough room under the car to allow it to go on a speed breaker. Apart from the suspension, the modified 2005 Ford GT has a custom body kit, hood, rims, and interiors, all painted to pitch black to ensure that you will have the complete attention of every single person who is in visual range. And when it is on the Dyno, it gives a maximum of 808 horsepower, enough to scare the other mere mortals off the tarmac!

Michael Harrah’s 24 Cylinder, 1704ci, 12 GMC Supercharged, Nitrous-Injected Truck Engine


That’s right, Mike Harrah’s show truck engine has 24 cylinders and 12—count ’em—12 GMC superchargers! It’s as far out there as we’ve ever seen, and we love it!

Why? “Because I can,” Harrah says. There’s no reason to take a 24V71 and build an intake manifold that weighs 1,000 pounds and mounts eight 6-71 superchargers on top of four others other than to say: There, take that. Yes, this is a V24 Detroit Diesel two-stroke (normally used to power ships), which is two V12 Detroits joined together nose to nose with splined cranks. It adds up to 1,704 ci. It’s ridiculous, on a grand scale. And that’s why it’s cool.
