2011 Chevrolet Camaro SS Lingenfelter LS7 800 HP - Muscle Cars BlogThe original ZL1 Camaro is one of the most coveted cars ever produced by General Motors. Its fire breathing aluminum 427 is truly the stuff of hot rodding legend. When Chevrolet announced that they would build a modernized version of that famed F-body on their new Zeta platform, enthusiasts across the nation immediately began spec’ing out their hopes for the car. By the time SEMA 2011 rolled around in November, it was clear that most major shops in North America had also spent the year dreaming and creating their own visions of what the hot new Camaro should be. While there was no shortage of F-bodies at SEMA that year, none took performance as seriously as this 2011 Camaro SS.

Built by Source Interlink Media, who you may know better as the parent company of magazines like Super Chevy, Hot Rod, Automobile and Motor Trend, plenty of BIG names were called in to help out. The list includes GM Performance Division, Thomson Automotive and Pedders Suspension just to name a few. After its SEMA debut, the car was taken to Lingenfelter Performance Engineering for a full shake down. The end result is a brand new Camaro packing over 800 fully streetable horsepower. There are few fifth generation Camaros that could touch this car in a quarter mile and absolutely zero with this kind of provenance.

1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 - 850 HP + Kaase heads on 460 Block - Muscle Cars BlogHere we present you this awesome 1970 Mustang Boss 429 just completed by the guys at Peak Performance Restorationsa. The muscle car features Kaase replica Boss 429 heads on a 460 block, bored and stroked to 545ci delivering an amazing 850 horse power! A 

The Boss 429 is arguably one of the rarest and most valued muscle cars to date. In total there were 1,358 Boss 429′s made. The origin of the Boss 429 comes about as a result of NASCAR. Ford was seeking to develop a Hemi enginethat could compete with the famed 426 Hemi from Chrysler. NASCAR’s rules required that at least 500 cars be fitted with this motor and sold to the general public. After much consideration, it was decided by Ford that the Mustang would be the car that would house this new engine.

In 1970 there were 499 Boss 429′s made by Ford Motor Company. There were five new exterior colors (Grabber Orange, Grabber Green, Grabber Blue, Calypso Coral, and Pastel Blue) and the interior was available in White or Black. The hood scoops for this year were all painted black regardless of the color of the car. These cars also had a manual transmission and no AC was available.

These cars were rated conservatively at 375 horsepower and 450 ft lbs of torque. Actual output was just over 500 horsepower . The manufacturers and dealers only listed 375hp because of legal issues and rising insurance costs.

In present day, these cars are highly sought after. As of 2008, auctions on Ebay and at Barrett-Jacksonhave brought bids of over $250,000.

Peak performance is proud to present their tribute to the Boss 429. A complete rotissore build surrounds this amazing engine. We started with a 1970 fastback which was completely sandblasted and all rust removed and new sheet metal replaced. All new parts were used to improve the handling of this car. New suspension, Wilwood brakes and TKO 600 transmission complete the transformation. Read more!
