1968 Dodge Charger

They’re few and far between these days, but if you try hard enough you can still find some hidden gems out there. This video was shot last year of a few guys coming across a fully intact 1968 Dodge Charger in the back of a junkyard. For most classic car guys this is like finding Sasquatch or seeing a unicorn. The beauty of this story is that the junkyards owner decided to sell the car so it could be fully restored, instead of simply letting it rot away. Price paid – $4,500.00, not too bad for one of the most iconic muscle cars to ever grace the pavement.

Goldberg’s New Ride: Project “ERNREE”

Bill Goldberg

He beat Hulk Hogan in front of 45,000 people at the Georgia Dome in the WWE, he’s played for the Atlanta Falcons in the NFL and he’s one of the nicest (and biggest) full blown car enthusiasts on the planet. He’s Bill Goldberg and he’s just set his sights on building one of the baddest second generation pro-touring Trans Am’s to ever roll on tarmac. You see last year after hosting the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational, Bill got seriously bitten by the pro-touring bug. Already a die-hard muscle car nut, the idea of melding old car styling with new car tech was something that really appealed to him. Plus, since he’d already seen a host of these bad boys in action, it just seemed right that he would jump on the bandwagon to create what he calls, project “ERNREE”.

The Golden Age: Trans Am Racing 1968-1972.

Trans Am Racing

Back in the mid-1960’s the SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) formed the Trans-Am Racing Series that pitted production based vehicles against each other in head to head competition. Trans-Am Racing was unbelievably popular and is still considered by some to be one of the best series ever to have been put together. Picture full-on muscle cars like the Plymouth Barracuda, AMC Javelin, Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro racing head to head on some of the best circuits in United States. These were the days when racing was racing. There was no traction or stability control and no anti-lock brakes. Hell, these cars ran on leaf-springs and in doing so showed us that the old muscle cars of yesteryear truly could go around corners if properly set-up. I was visiting over at Pro-touring.com, a web site that is dedicated to making full-on corner carvers out of vintage American muscle, when I came upon a thread containing some wonderful old photographs of Trans Am racing in its heyday. These photos were taken by Dave Friedman and give us a little insight into how amazing this series really was.

Super Sleeper: 1979 Chevrolet Malibu w/LS1 V8

Posted in Chevrolet, Cool Stuff, Custom, eBay Motors, GM, Pro-Touring by MrAngry | December 14th, 2010 | 4 Responses |

There are times in a car enthusiasts life when the thought of owning a sleeper car becomes an appealing thing. Take this granny-tastic 1979 Chevrolet Malibu for example. It’s got all the right components to take the unsuspecting eye on a slow ride to sleepy town. Beige paint – check, 15-inch wire wheel covers – check, half-vinyl top… DOUBLE CHECK! Ordinarily a car like this would never even trip the radar, however this little dandy is packing a secret that would throw off even the most well trained eye. You see it’s packing a 400 hp LS1 V8 out of a 2005-2006 Pontiac GTO, which makes this car AWESOME!

1969 Chevrolet Camaro Custom: What’s Your Take?

1969 Chevrolet Camaro Custom

One of the coolest things about being an automotive journalist is that we get the opportunity to see just about everything that the automotive world has to offer. We see the latest and greatest in new cars, concept cars and full customs in settings that the general public is generally not privy too. There are times however that some of the cars we’d like to see are simply out of our reach due to geographic reasons. That brings me to this amazing 1969 Chevrolet Camaro custom that’s located in Springfield, MO. This orange ’69 is simply stunning and looks to have thousands of man hours invested in it. Half pro-touring and half pro-stock, this Camaro blurs the line between full-on street machine and drag day animal.

Sabine Schmitz gets frisky with CAR Magazine’s Juliet McGuire.

It’s loading… trust us.

You may know Sabine Schmitz as the Wonder Woman of the Nurburgring, or as some folks like to refer to her, The Hottest Woman On The Planet. Sabine is best known for her skills piloting the Ring Taxi around the Nurburgrings many corners, but when not giving people paid tours around the Ring, she’s out test driving the worlds latest and greatest super cars. For example here we see Sabine taking CAR magazine’s Juliet McGuire for a little run in a BMW M3 Frozen Edition. Ms. Juliet is right on the edge of her seat for the entire ride and truth be told, Sabine looks as though she is totally enjoying making her passenger freak out. All I know is that Juliet McGuire is loving being in the passenger seat of that BMW, and I have a feeling that after that ride she’ll be satisfied in more ways than one.

The Heroic Days of Motor Racing 1902-1951.

Automobiles are safer now than in any other time in history. Built in roll cages, crash boxes and crumple zones as well as airbags and all manner of safety restraint systems are in place to keep occupants safe from harm. In the early days speed ruled the roost and driver safety was more of an afterthought than anything else. Racers would run flat-out at speeds upwards of 100 mph in some of the most archaic machines ever made, all in the quest for victory. There were no seat belts, fire retardant suits or helmets for drivers to wear and because of this being a race car driver was one of the most lethal sporting events one could partake in. The above video shows us just how the pioneers of motor sports won, lost and sometimes even died. Be warned, some of the images are graphic, but once you see them I think you’ll be amazed at how far we’ve come in terms of the technological advancements that have been made to the automobile over the last 100 years.

Buy It or Build It: That is the Question!

Lego Mustang

With the current crop of cars on the market I’m beginning to wonder if the idea of building a custom car has lost some of its steam. Not too long ago in order to get a car with some real tire shredding performance and top notch handling you needed to build something yourself or spend big money to get something exotic. Nowadays though its seems that the tables have turned on customizers and builders the world over, as the manufacturers are really starting to turn out some amazing machines. Just stop and think for a moment about what type of performance $40,000 will buy you in today’s market.

Dodge Charger Roadster

I’ll be honest, it takes a huge set of gonads to go and cut the roof off one of the most beautiful cars that ever came out of Detroit. In the interest of creating a one of a kind Mopar however, that’s exactly what Scotlea Hot Rods in Nowata, Oklahoma did. What you are seeing here is a collection of parts from 1968, 1969, and 1970 Dodge Chargers that came together to create the 2nd generation Charger Roadster you see here. To give you an idea of what was used from where: the grill and taillights for example are from a 1968 Charger, the front fenders, rear quarters and hood are ’69 pieces, while the interior and steering column are 1970 units.
