Lindsey is a freelance writer and lover of anything with a rumble. Hot rods, muscle cars, motorcycles - she's owned and driven it all. When she's not busy writing about them, she's out in her garage wrenching away. Who doesn't love a tech-savy gal that knows her way around a garage?
How much would you pay for a dilapidated old truck? Probably not as much as you’d pay for a nicely restored one, unless you’re a fan of the derelict style. Well for all of you who fall in the later category, we have an eBay lot for you! Not only is this ’50 C/K Pickup unique, it’s downright gorgeous.
Owning a hot rod without being able to enjoy it on the road is pointless. That’s why the crew at Art Morrison does what they do best, giving classic car owners the comfort and functionality of a modern performance car.
While there are some states that have more lenient rules and some counties that don’t even have emission testing, California’s emissions standards in general are the epitome of a performance car owner’s nightmare. However, pre-1981 cars could be exempt soon if newly drafted legislation is passed in the state!
How much would you pay for a classic car fitted with only the very basic model options? What if the car only had 3,300 miles on it? Well for one eBay seller, he’s hoping someone would pay a lot as he is selling a ’58 two-door Biscayne with the most basic options for $39,900. Is it worth it? You tell us!
The 1930s were rough for people and even harder than life itself was finding a steady job. For a lucky number of men, permanent employment came in the form of working in factories where they manufactured Chevrolet’s fleet of vehicles. Check out this vintage footage of the Flint, MI Chevy plant from 1936.
Tornados don’t discriminate when it comes to what they damage and Branson, Missouri found that out when among the properties damaged was the Branson Auto Museum. Although the property was hit hard by 130-mph winds and lost its roof, the museum will be rebuilding and reopening in the future.
Winning a hot rod is great, but it eliminates the fun of building your own car. That’s why Factory Five Racing has teamed up with PowerBlock TV to give one lucky sweepstakes winner the ultimate do-it-yourself roadster build package, complete with a Factory Five MK4 Roadster chassis.
Building toy cars to resemble production vehicles is nothing new but recently we’ve seen an influx of production cars turned into Hot Wheels-inspired creations. Edelbrock’s ’57 Bel Air is such a car, but its story is a bit different. It was actually created by students at Ohio Technical College as a gift to Vic.
While many of us wouldn’t classify a ‘57 Chevy as a potent track machine, we’ve got the video which proves otherwise. That’s a good thing, too, considering Andrew Chessells of Australia recently proved just how potent a classic Chevy can be with the right build. Watch as he clocks a mid 9-sec pass!
The Ridler Award is the most prestigious award in the custom car industry. In that right, it is a big deal what brand of components end up on these cars. That’s why RideTech is proud that their suspension components have been used on Ridler Award-winning vehicles for the past two years.
It’s back! The popular Big Carb Deal from Edelbrock is making its rounds again for 2012 and like in years past, this means you can score a free air cleaner with the purchase of a new Edelbrock carburetor. Now’s the perfect time to get your car on the road and get yourself something free in the process.
