I sometimes wonder what will happen to classic cars and hot-rods once the older generation passes on. Muscle cars will most likely still be around, but I’m more concerned about the cars from the 1920′s-1950′s. What you are viewing here is a 1934 Ford coupe that’s been transformed into a Pierson Bros. Salt Flats tribute. Built the right way, this old Ford is equipped with a 1934 frame, steel firewall and cowl with functional vent, a fiberglass body, freshened up 5.0L V-8 and an AOD transmission. It also features a Petronix ignition, Edelbrock carb and a Snow White water pump system. The paint on the car is flawless as is the interior that houses Stewart Warner gauges and great looking bomber seats with leather inserts. This is a ride that anyone would be proud to own, so make sure to check it out and help save another classic!

Double Trouble Hot Rod

In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as big an impression as this – the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as “Double-Trouble”. It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that’s fabricated from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with four, count ‘em, FOUR superchargers for an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It’s a rolling a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all your naughty bits tingle.

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.

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.

ZZ Top – I Gotsta Get Paid

Posted in Celebrity Cars, Educational, Gas Guzzlers, General, Hot Rods, Top of the Heap, Videos by MrAngry | October 21st, 2012 | 3 Responses |

ZZ Top

When it comes to beards, bad-ass rides and babes, ZZ Top has had the market cornered for over 30 years. Back in 1983 front man Billy Gibbons had a wicked 1933 Ford Coupe built that was known by fans as the, “Eliminator”. It was red with alloy wheels and the “ZZ” graphics on the side and for hot-rodders around the world, this WAS the car to own. Fast forward to 2012, a mere 29 years after the original “Eliminator’ was built and ZZ Top’s new single, I Gotsta Get Paid. Granted the car is not there, but it’s essence lives on right to the very end.

If you were ever wondering what the best part of hot-rodding was, let me enlighten you – it’s the people. Hot-rodder’s in general share things like busted knuckles, broken parts and the understanding that our beloved vehicles are not perfect. We’re salt-of-the-earth people and go to extreme measures to make sure our rides are always running. In “Something from Nothing” Josh Clason visits TBC Hot Rods and Bikes in Fayetteville, NC, talks to Tim Bradham and gains the realization that automotive enthusiasts everywhere may need a little more old school in their diet.

American Street Car Series: Run to the Coast

Camaro, Challenger, Javelin, Mustang and Cougar. These are just some of the legendary names that came out of the muscle car era. They were big, brash and in your face and during the golden era of the Trans Am Racing Series (1968-1972) they could be seen banging fenders on circuits like Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Watkins Glen and Road America.

Nowadays seeing a muscle car on a road course is like seeing a unicorn in the flesh. There is however one man who is hell bent on bringing these classic beauties back to the track. Bill Howell is the creator of the new American Street Car Series, a gathering of events that not only encourages people to bring their vintage iron to the track, but to run them full-tilt with the single goal of having as much fun as they possibly can.

The Reetz Epic Adventure

Posted in Hot Rods, Other Rides, Rides, Roadster, Videos by MrAngry | February 14th, 2012 | 2 Responses |

Reetz Adventure

If there’s one thing that I’m an authority on it’s the road trip. You see I’ve traversed the United States in just about every way possible. From North to South, East to West and even diagonally and I’ve done it many, many times. Taking a road trip is one thing, but taking a road trip in an old car is something else entirely. New cars factor out many of the variables that make for a great adventure. Things like break downs, crappy mileage, lack of creature comforts and of course, the availability of parts. Now some of you may ask, “Why would you ever want to put yourself in a position where any of those things could come into play?” Well, the fact of the matter is this. Running an old car over thousands of miles gives you a sense of accomplishment.

It makes people stop, stare and ask questions and at days end, it’s also just more fun. The Reetz family recently took part in a West coast road trip in a 1930 Model A Coupe with a Miller OHV system and a carburetor and even though they brought a support vehicle you can bet it was one of the most memorable journeys they’ve ever had. Click through for the video and enjoy.

Chip Foose had a Volkswagen Rabbit?

Posted in Educational, General, Hot Rods, Other Rides, Rides, Videos, Volkswagen by MrAngry | February 3rd, 2012 | 1 Response |

Chip Foose

In the annals of modern hot-rod design there is no question that Chip Foose is amongst the best in the business. His cars have been featured on television, in magazines, online and at some of the greatest car shows around the world. However, before Foose got into hot-rods he was, get this, a Volkswagen guy. That’s right, he drove a 1985 MkII Golf GTI, a car which he says, was one of his favorites and the car that provided him with much of his early inspiration. I suppose it should come as no surprise as the VW Golf, like the Porsche 911, is one of those rare automobiles that has simply evolved over time. Through the years it’s gotten better and better, and like Chip Foose himself, it’s never lost any of the emotion that the original one set forth all those years ago.
