1963 Chevrolet Corvette 2600 HP- World's Fastest Street Legal Corvette - Muscle Cars BlogCheck out this incredible 1963 Chevrolet Corvette – it’s the World’s Fastest street legal corvette out there! It’s a once-in-a-lifetime project, that took more than 5 years and realized by Rod Saboury. But let’s get straight to the point – enjoy this mean machine, read the full article and check out the 100+ images in the gallery!

Design and Construction

The 5-year project was started in 2001. In the first 2 years, drawings, schematics, adherence to drag racing rules and local motor vehicle requirements were foremost in the preliminary design. Finding the correct car was also at the top of the “To Do” list. When the car was eventually found, it was delivered to Rod as a shell on a wooden pallet with no frame, the original VIN tags, clear title and a price tag of $800…It was Perfect!

The body was sent to long time friend and fiberglass guru Frank Morawski where the body was stretched 12 inches in three places to maintain proportions. It was widened 3 inches in the rear, the quarter panels were raised 2 inches, a rear wing was recessed into the body and a functioning trunk was created that looked like it came from the GM factory. Overall, it was no easy feat requiring hundreds of man-hours. Great Job Frank. Read more!

When you join the over 50′s crowd, your car insurance premiums are likely to go down. Insurance companies calculate policy prices by determining the risk of each driver. When you get older, you are considered to be less of a risk, giving you more affordable options to choose from.

However, if you do a few things, it may be possible for you to see even better reductions. If you are really keen on squeezing every last penny out of your next policy, there are a few things you can do.

When muscle cars hit the streets back in the 1950s they smashed everything else off the road with out-of-this-world performance. Indulging their owners with growling power and NASCAR-tested engines, these mean machines changed the world forever. They transformed the streets from the domain of dreary 4-seaters into a horsepower-packed playground. Modern muscle cars build upon this legendary heritage by taking the latest technology and using it to produce massively powerful machines. And, unlike the 1950s when your desire to customize was limited by what the factory chucked out, you can deck out your prized ride with a vast array of custom muscle car accessories.

Muscle cars and e-bikes - Muscle Cars BlogHello, guys! We strive to provide you with cool and unique articles about American Muscle cars and today we’re gonna talk about muscle cars and …. electric bikes. Yes, electric bikes!

You all know why carmakers build muscle cars – because people buy them, and they add luster to the brands. They’re wrapped up in the flag, right along with apple pie and motherhood. Does Car and Driver or Road & Track put Ford Fiestas on the cover, or Boss 302 Mustangs? Incidentally, that model first appeared in 1969 and 1970, which is when muscle car fever was in full bloom. No early muscle car had anything but a V-8 under the hood and that was amazing, but when you think about 1969 Boss 429 got 9-12 mpg on premium fuel.. well, that’s the other side of the coin. However, the new muscle cars era does better with about 17 mpg in the city and a credible 26 mpg on the highway. Back in the days the gasoline was 30 cents, now it’s $3.30 per gallon and don’t get me wrong – I love muscle cars, but recently I stumbled upon the Predator Offroad Electric Bike from REEF Bikes.

Team Work pays off for KTM

Jan

Well it’s fair to say it’s been a fantastic Dakar Rally for the KTM Factory team so far, and at stage 12, things got even better.

Current race leader Cyril Despres managed to maintain his lead, whilst superbly helping team-mate Ruben Faria cement 2nd place in the bike contest.

It seemed that team-work was the crucial ingredient to the successful formula the boys from KTM are creating. But this would be tested to the limit as they approached the twelfth stage at Copiapo.

This stage has always carried an element of the ‘fear-factor’ for Dakar riders of all disciplines, which ensured that there was a hint of caution surrounding the competitors.
