I saw this open top GTO Judge this during my time in Michigan last summer. I was assured by the owner that it was a real one, which makes it one of just 108 built. Pretty awesome to see such a rare muscle car in person. It was in well used condition, but hey, at least she gets driven. Enjoy the pics.
Haven’t had a solid muscle car in a while, so this Plymouth Fury should get things back on track. I was blown away by this thing when I saw it during my summer in Detroit. First off I am a huge fan of black and red color schemes, so even just looks alone caught my interest. But then the hood was popped, and inside sat a 426ci Max Wedge V8; the epitome of the 1963 models. This Fury embodies what the muscle car is all about, rather unassuming looks with a whole lot of punch under the hood. Enjoy.
The ’63 split window Stingray is the most beautiful Corvette of all time in my opinion. I liken the Stingray to being the “American E-Type” because it was of the same generation as the Jag and had a similar significance on car design. The 1963 model was the only year to feature the split rear window design, and after seeing it all of the subsequent Stingray coupes look a tad awkward without it. The car you see here was the top of the line ’63 Vette with a fuel injected 327ci (5.4L) V8 that produced 360hp. It was a brilliant machine, seemingly in Concours condition, and the owner had parked it in a great spot for photos. Enjoy.
Yea, this car looks pretty stock, maybe some headers but that’d be about it. Race for slips?
This is one of the first superstock drag specials from Chrysler corporation in the 1960s. This was right at the beginning of the horsepower wars where scores between the big three were settled both on drag strips and at stoplights. Dodge put a 413ci (6.8L) V8 in the Dart, a huge engine for what was a midsize car at the time. The 413 put down around 415hp through a 3 speed transmission, allowing this Dart to break many records in sanctioned drag racing. The owner, a lady named Stacy, told me that she drives this car every day, even dropping off her daughter at school in this beast. If that is not cool in this day and age, I don’t know what is. Most parents may roll up with their kids in Prius’ or Accords, and then you see this old drag racer pull up; unreal. This is one of those legendary muscle cars that steals the show, even when surrounded by other incredible things. I was happy to have seen it, and to be able to take some pics of it. I have yet to see another one like it, enjoy the pics of this great car.
The HemiCuda is my favorite “muscle car” bar none, and occupies a spot on my most coveted list of cars. It has everything I look for in American Muscle; an epic motor (The legendary 426 Hemi), an badass name (Barracuda), cool features (the pistolgrip manual shifter), and awesome, cartoonish styling that brings out childish enthusiasm. The car you see here is pretty much my ideal ‘Cuda, exactly as I just described. Being a ’71 Hemi ‘Cuda, this car is worth a fortune (at least $400k, and climbing) because only a handful were built due to lower demand in its day. That makes it just as unattainable as every other car on my most coveted list, and a real treat to behold in person. Enjoy the epic badassary….
This is one of the new gen Camaros that was converted into a modern Pontiac Firebird. To my understanding they are quite rare, only available as a custom order from shops that standardized the conversion. This is the first one I have ever seen, and this is what I could find about the car and its conversion. Enjoy.
At the Shell station on Woodward Ave during a Saturday cruise night. I am a sucker for cartoonish Mopars and its bright green allure forced me to stop and take some photos. The owner, Fred, was also very cool and showed me around the whole car. The car is currently making around 600hp all motor, and has a nitrous setup in the trunk if more than that is desired. It is a real badass piece of American Muscle on a nice street-able drag setup. This car is oozing with fun personality, and that night it stole the show; not an easy feat during weekend cruise nights here in Motor City. Enjoy the pics. Read the rest of this entry »
Went out to Lambertville, NJ for Sunday brunch with my family. It was 50 degrees outside in January, so I figured I’d bring my camera to catch any cool cars running around. The Lambertville/New Hope area always has some solid cars around, here’s what I saw today. Read the rest of this entry »
On New Year’s Eve, while shopping for clothes, I saw this Corvette roadster out for a drive. What a strange thing to see this late in the year, and it seems to be in decent shape as well.

Saw this beauty at a local meet. I had never seen a 429 Cobra Jet Torino before. The owner was very cool and was happy to tell me about the car.
Since I was at a race and expected to see some nice cars there, however there were a few that stood out to me. Instead of making them individual posts, I figured I would lump them into one post. The first car posted above is a Ferrari 308 Quattrovalvolve. I love the old 308s, there is just something elegant about them, but I can never put my finger on it. Next up we have a Mercedes Benz CLS 63AMG, just glorious by all accounts, 1969 Camaro and a BMW 1-Series M. Read the rest of this entry »
