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!

“Millions of us grew up playing with Hot Wheels,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing. “Offering a special production model of the Camaro Hot Wheels is an opportunity to bring those memories to life, for kids of all ages.”

The Camaro Hot Wheels® Edition debuted at the SEMA Show, in Las Vegas. A special run of the Camaro Hot Wheels® Edition will be produced in the first quarter of 2013 – and like the collectable toys on which it is based – when they’re gone, they’re gone.

“It’s been nearly 20 years since I started designing cars for Hot Wheels and I have yet to drive one home,” said Felix Holst, vice president of creative for the Mattel Wheels Division. “Personally, I can’t wait to open the doors and see the Hot Wheels Camaro sitting in the garage.”

The appearance of the Camaro Hot Wheels® Edition echoes the cues that Hot Wheels enthusiasts recognize, including a vibrant, graphics-accented metallic paint scheme and even the red-lined wheels. The result is instantly recognizable as a Hot Wheels. Click on Read more!

2009 Ford Mustang Roush P-51b - Muscle Cars BlogLike most gearheads, Jack Roush enjoys engines of any kind and speed at any level. Nobody knows more about getting a Ford around a racetrack quickly than this guy.

One of only 51 produced, this showroom fresh Roush P-51B is the ultimate embodiment of classic American aviation and decades of racing knowledge. If you’re looking for a unique show car that’s virtually guaranteed to grow into an elite, investment grade muscle car, here’s your chance to strap in early and watch this Mustang climb!

Under-inflated tyres lead drivers to spend big

May

There are many things to consider when maintaining your car, and sometimes it’s easy to overlook one of the most fundamental components – the tyres on the wheels that allow it to move.

Tyre Safety Month took place in October 2011 in the UK, and featured a number of special events and promotions designed to get drivers thinking about the condition their tyres are in and how to improve them.

Throughout October, motoring organisations highlighted the benefits of keeping tyres pumped up to the recommended level, not least of which is significantly improved fuel consumption – helping motorists to save money on fuel which can go towards other essentials such as car insurance renewal.

2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 Auburn Edition Custom - Muscle Cars BlogThis brand new 2011 Mustang GT 5.0 was designed and built by Cahaba Custom Cars LLC. in Birmingham, AL. Various design modifications were implemented to further boast its already muscular appearance. We have added a custom painted front and rear spoiler, body color rear air diffuser, lowering springs by Ford Racing and a very throaty but beautiful sounding Roush exhaust with 4” chrome tips. All of our work is done in house to ensure the highest quality product available. PPG Global paints and clear coat were used. The striping on this car was painted over the original color and then burried under 5 layers of clear coat, wet sanded and polished to a mirror finish. This is far superior to the traditional factory vinyl tape stripe in looks, feel, and durability. Click on Read more for fantastic gallery and more information!
