Screen Shot 2015-09-07 at 10.37.05 PMRecently, we discussed some of the worst, most overplayed modifications. Considering the wide array of aftermarket parts available, it’s not difficult to take a project car in the wrong direction. Those that have the right eye, money to burn and build plan, however, can have a very different result. From well over 1,000 horsepower beasts to an incredible resto-mod, here are three of our favorite muscle car builds. (more…)

Riced CorvetteIt’s probably not hard to figure out that we’re fans of The Fast and the Furious films. Some cool cars, great driving scenes and solid action. The key word being some cool cars. Though the storylines and dialogue are timeless, more than a few of the featured car modifications are well past their expiration date. Yet, on virtually any drive, you don’t need to look far to see some of these “upgrades” alive and well. Let’s stop the madness. Here are seven trends that are ready to move on: (more…)

Panel FilterUpgrading an intake system is one of the first modifications typically made to a new performance car. By simply allowing your car to breathe easier, extra horsepower can be had cheaply and safely, particularly handy for warrantied cars. But before you drop $150-300 on an entirely new system, there may be an even better way to begin: high-flow air filters. (more…)

Fast & FuriousOf all the Fast and the Furious films, likely the most underrated is the fourth entry. Titled simply Fast & Furious, it connects numerous dots in the ongoing timeline but otherwise doesn’t seem to have the same popularity as others in the saga. However, there are a few scenes that not only define the movie, but rank it as one of the best made so far. Here are our top picks:  (more…)

Justin WilsonIn another case of tragically preventable death, the grim reality of open-cockpit racing has become all too apparent. Justin Wilson, aged 37, succumbed to injuries sustained Sunday afternoon during the IndyCar race at Pocono Raceway. To say the absolute least, our deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends and teammates of the beloved driver. (more…)

fast-furious-tokyo-drift-1967-ford-mustangOne of the best things about the Fast and the Furious films is the mixture of vehicles. Granted, the majority typically are Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) but more than a few muscle cars tend to make their way into each part of the series. The first film had a ’69 Charger to die for and the second film upped the anti with a clean Challenger and Yenko Camaro. Somehow, despite being set in Tokyo, the third film kept the trend alive and well. Here are a few of our favorites from the JDM vs. USDM flick: (more…)

2-Fast-2-Furious-image-2We started off the Fast and Furious Flashback series of posts with the original. You can probably guess the movie of interest for round two. From the most overdone (not opinion, fact) Mitsubishi Eclipse we’ve ever seen to muscle car cameos and more than a few great driving scenes, 2 Fast 2 Furious took the franchise in a new, wilder direction. Here’s a few of our favorite moments from the sequel:  (more…)

paulwalker_2The Fast and the Furious. It’s hard to think of a more instantly recognizable series of car films. Tougher yet to name one that has captivated such a wide audience. Regardless of age, car preference, career, etc., it’s almost impossible to not like, at least in some way, the ever-growing franchise. From the ridiculous to genuinely impressive, some of the most referenced car culture lines originate from The Fast and the Furious films. As a small tribute, we’ve put together a few of our favorite moments, starting with the first film:  (more…)

Procharged MustangYou may have heard this comparison before: ProCharger vs. Supercharger. Depending on your car scene, that may launch an ongoing argument about what defines a supercharger as opposed to other types of forced induction. More importantly, if you’re deciding on what type of blower to purchase, knowing the pros and cons of each option can make a considerable difference. To help, here’s a quick breakdown of the three most popular types of superchargers: roots, centrifugal and screw types. (more…)

corey-weber-ford-mustang-OUSCI-2013_60Car meets are some of the best ways to unwind after a long week, hang out with the crew, meet new people and see a wide variety of rides. One way to make it even more entertaining is by getting together with your buddies ahead of time and driving to the meet. Racing on public streets, however, is a slightly different story. Knowing the difference and what to do when things start to speed up can be the difference between a fun highway blast and a very lost license.

DSC_0405In virtually any large car meet, you’re likely to find someone who has Plasti-Dipped some portion of their car. From small, discreet badges to the entire car itself, this trend has exploded over the past few years. However, is it everything it’s made out to be, or is there something you should know before running off to the shop? As it turns out, reality is a little of both. Here are the basics of the temporary paint phenomenon.

1968 Ford GTTypically we think of modern muscle cars as performance bargains, offering incredible power for relatively little. However, when it comes to classic muscle, especially examples with historical importance, prices head very quickly in the other direction. In an auction setting, it’s not uncommon for original or well restored favorites to crack into six figure territory. Our own Chris Duke and Alan Taylor got a firsthand look at the 2015 Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction.

As impressive as those numbers are, certain examples with the right owners, background and place in history can enter an entirely different stratosphere. Ready to see some jaw dropping numbers? Check out our list of the six most expensive muscle cars ever sold:
