Everything is finished in Daytona yellow from the engine compartment, the floors, the wheel wells and the trunk. The paint in a PPG base coat/clear coat and has an excellent hand rubbed finish.

1970 Ford Mustang BOSS 302 with Marti report

1970 Ford Mustang BOSS 302 with Marti report - Muscle Cars BlogFew cars carry as direct a link between motorsports and the showroom as the Boss 302. Parnelli Jones drove a Mustang, powered by a canted-valve, hand built, 5 liter engine and four speed manual, and you could go to your local dealer and have one, too! Hey—the production cars even ran his stripes! A big carb, a big intake, big heads opened a lot of eyes to small block power, and the power waiting to be unleashed with a simple set of headers and an aggressive cam are the stuff of legend. This example here is quite the street fighter, packing the Boss engine, 3.91 gears and little else. It’s as close as you could get to a Mustang race car with license plates in 1970!

Comprehensive Car Insurance: The Best Or Just a Rip Off?

Dec
17

When it comes to protecting your car, you want the best car insurance that money can buy; or do you?  While having car insurance is generally legally required in most regions, motor insurance companies can make additional profits by offering more extensive insurance packages to their drivers.  These insurance packages may include various benefits apart from car accident repairs, such as roadside assistance or routine car maintenance.  This is obviously a direct contrast to very basic packages, such as with liability coverage, which will only cover the cost of a third party’s repairs should the insured driver get into a car accident.

Comprehensive car insurance is quite the opposite. This type of insurance can cover other motor related matters, such as repairs in the case of an “act of God.” If you have housing insurance, you may already know what an “act of God” is, but essentially it is a natural disaster that cannot otherwise be predicted.

Dec

The new 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 is an awesome muscle car.

With a supercharged V-8 engine and 662 horsepower, this little beast can surpass 200 miles per hour – this fact alone would be enough to make many men consider buying the car, but when you consider the low price of £35,000, it is clear that this car is simply a steal!

Safe driving advice and information

Winter is upon us, and that usually means snow, ice or at least a thick film of frost on every pavement and road first thing on a morning. While pedestrians will have to try their best not to slip, motorists have more to be wary of at this time of year. Winter is the most difficult time of year for drivers, as they have to contend with patches of black ice, heavy snow drifts, freezing rain or, at the very least, a few patches of frost that show no signs of thawing.

2006 Corvette C6 out for a ride – a short film by one of our readers!

Nov

Hello, guys! Today I want to share with you a short video, made by one of our readers – Kelby Roberson – a very ambitious 17-year old young filmmaker on youtube with some serious equipment. Kelby dropped me a line on Facebook with his video and when I saw if, I decided to post it and support this fan.

The video is about a 2006 Corvette C6 (V8 LS2 400HP) going out for a ride on some nice peaceful roads and then going back home. Although it’s not a super-speed, drifting “fast and furious” movie, it has its charm. The young Mr. Roberson chose a very nice and shiny Vette to work his film skills, because he could pick any other make, but he wanted a true American car. What’s more, he has plans to study film in college for the next four years, so Kelby, hope you achieve your goal and keep up the good work! We are waiting your next video showing some burned rubber!

Don’t waste any more time a check out the video on Read more!

1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Competition Yellow

1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Competition Yellow - Muscle Cars BlogThis lovely muscle car was one clean Boss before it was stripped to bare metal and restored by the prosat Santa Barbara Muscle Cars. They stripped it to a shell, cleaned any trouble spots (there weren’t many), and then refinished it in the original hue. But instead of ancient enamel, it now sports two-stage urethane paint, which gives the rejuvenated Boss a depth and clarity that makes it dazzling in the sunlight. As if that’s not enough, there were only 693 Competition Yellow over black Boss 302s built in 1970, making this a somewhat rare piece.

I mentioned the blacked-out pieces, but this car also still sports a fair amount of chrome and bright work. The front and rear bumpers have been restored to new condition, and all the stainless has been polished. The wing and rear window slats, as well as the front chin spoiler have also been coated in more satin black paint to match the stripes, and the new-for-1970 rear valence panel and taillights got their own coat of black, too. The simple grille is in excellent shape and is probably the original piece in original condition, further proof that this is an exceptionally clean car. Read more!
