Now here’s something new. This is a completely hand fabricated one-off custom car that is truly like nothing we’ve ever seen before. It’s built on a one-inch steel tubular chassis with a body that’s made from fiberglass and carbon fiber. The engine is a 2.2 liter 4-cyl Chevrolet engine with a supercharger that, according to the owner, is good for 270 HP and 26 mpg. It sports a custom interior and is fully road legal in the state of Florida. This is definitely one of the coolest things we’ve seen on eBay in a while, so make sure to click through for more photos or go directly to the eBay Motors link below.

Posted in Best of, Custom, General, muscle cars, Mustang by MrAngry | September 13th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Equus 770

Let’s get this right out in the open. This car, the 2014 EQUUS BASS770, is a new take on the American muscle car. It’s got the body of a 1965 Mustang (kinda), a front end that looks like it came from a 1971 Plymouth Road Runner and the engine and suspension out of a Corvette. Oh, and it also costs – wait for it… $250,000. Seriously, they spent some coin on it! Now, is it worth it? Honestly, I have no idea. It does however have one of the best marketing videos out there! Check it out after the jump.

HulkSmash_1

Okay, I’ll admit it, there is nothing about this car that screams deal. However this sucker is so off the charts nutty that we had to post it as the eBay Deal of the Week. This is a 1989 Chevrolet Caprice that’s been turned into one of the most interesting tributes to the Incredible Hulk that I’ve ever seen. The interior is a full custom job that’s black with reptile accents and custom air brushing. The door jambs, underside of the hood and trunk, dash, door panels, custom center console are all done with amazing detail. It sports a 505 hp 7.0L LS7 that will turn the 30″ tires into glue as you’re activating the remote dumpers for the exhaust. Now obviously this thing isn’t for everybody, hell it may not be for anybody. But if you’re a fan of the HULK and you want the most outrageous piece of fan tribute, then this little gem is your monkey! Check out more pics after the jump, or head directly to the eBay ad below.

eBay Deal of the Week: 1975 Chevrolet Corvette Radical Custom

Posted in Custom, eBay Motors, General, Promoted by MrAngry | July 8th, 2013 | 2 Responses |

1975Corvette_1

The odds of the everyday person knowing names like Ed “Big Daddy” Roth, George Barris, Tom Daniels, Gene Winfield and Dean Jeffries are relatively slim. However if you’re into custom cars and or custom car culture then these names mean the world to you. Over the years their creations have inspired others to take a shot at designing their own cars, and while most fail, the creator of this radical 1975 Corvette did not. The headlights and radiator for instance are from a Shelby Series 1, while the custom bubble top is made of 1/4″ acrylic and is remote operated by linear actuators. This is a real life Hot Wheels car and while there’s no “Buy it Now” price, you can bet that whatever the final bidding results are, that they’ll be well below the labor cost that went into creating this. Check out more pics after the jump or head directly to the eBay Motors link below.

Hellfire: Turbine-Powered Triumph

Posted in Bizarre, Cool Stuff, Custom, Triumph by Dustin Driver | April 26th, 2013 | 4 Responses |

Triumph Spitfire with turbine engine.

The Triumph Spitfire is adorable. It’s perky. It’s sweet. And that’s exactly why it needs a screaming, searing, sky-splitting, pavement-melting turbine engine from a helicopter. The appropriately named StanceWorks forums member godzillus is installing a 320-horsepower Allison T63C18 turbine into a rusty Spitfire as you read this post. Oh, and it’s a senior design project for engineering school. Who said school isn’t any fun?

Hot Rod Garage: Diedelson’s Kustom Chevy

1951 Chevy Scraper

Getting the stance right in a custom vehicle can either make it or break it from a visual perspective. Set it too high and it looks like a 4×4, set it too low and you’re dragging oil pans. Diedelson’s Customs in Holland has opted for the latter on their 1951 Chevy Truck and in doing so has created a vehicle that looks like it came out of some B-rated horror flick. It’s old and rusty, but thanks to a front airbag suspension it actually runs pretty good when pushed hard. Is it for everyone? Well no. However if you’re diggin’ on the rusty ole’ airbag look, then this slammed old Chevy may just be the one for you.

Levi's Hot Rod

The American hot-rod is an icon. It was crafted out of rebellion, ingenuity and the will to be different. They were meant to go fast, get looks and at days end, announce to the world that you had arrived in style. The truth is though, in the last 60 years not a whole lot has changed. Sure technology has advanced, but deep down the basic DNA has always remained the same. Levi’s recently launched a great ad that not only transports us back to a time when life was a little simpler, but reminds us why cars, of any vintage are all masterpieces just waiting to be turned into hot-rods.

Mitch Allread

Attention to detail and vision – that’s what makes a custom car great. Mitch Allread is a custom builder and fabricator who just happens to have built a one-off creation that would make Max Rockatansky proud. What started life as a 1949 Ford F-5 truck has now been transformed into the mother of all post-apocalyptic vehicles. It’s presence is raw, its look and feel is nothing but sinister, and at days end the builder should be proud that he created something so original.

LS7 Powered Porsche 911 is a Motorheads Wet Dream

Posted in Best of, Custom, Educational, General, Other Rides, Videos by MrAngry | December 28th, 2011 | 1 Response |

LS7 Powered Porsche 911

I’ve seen it done in an MG Midget, a 1968 Dodge Dart and hell, even in a Morgan Plus 4. I speak of course about shoehorning a GM LS-based small block into just about anything with four wheels. The GM small block is without a doubt one of the greatest creations in all of motoring. It’s lightweight, compact, cheap and with a few minor tweaks can make serious power. It’s no doubt then why every hot-rodder and their brother go with a small block when it comes time to power their vehicle. Obviously some swaps are easier then others. For instance, in the aforementioned Dodge Dart the procedure didn’t take much more then a few new motor mounts and some reconstructive surgery to make the transmission fit. However there are those who go in a more unconventional route. Take for instance this late 1980′s Porsche 911. I mean sure the engine is a tight fit, but one turn of the key will tell you that it seems right at home sitting at the wrong end of the car. Cool stuff right?

Fatchance

Every now and then we get a story submitted to us by a faithful reader and member of the automotive community. Scott Vandekerckhove is such a person as he’s not only a rabid car enthusiast, but the man responsible for putting together last years über successful HEMI Highway Tour for Chrysler and a lead contributor to “Modern Mopar Magazine”. So when I read his latest story on how Huntington Beach, California resident John Fortuno had influenced the development of the new 2011 Chrysler 300 sedan I just had to post it.
