1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS SS - Freshly Restored, Supercharged 461-Powered Beast! - Muscle Cars BlogFinished in Daytona Yellow over a black interior with Houndstooth inserts, this 1969 Camaro RS/SS has a killer blend of both Pro-Touring and Pro-Street attributes. The restoration is impeccable, the parts are top notch, and the ride is something else.

Starting with a refinishing down to bare metal, this rotisserie restored masterpiece has excellent body work and features all new trim, glass and chrome from front to rear. 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.

The interior features all new parts from Year One and the seats have been kitted out with the awesome Houndstooth inserts as seen on these cars back in ‘69. The carpeting, seats, headliner door panels, package tray and crash pad are all new parts. All of the handles and interior trim pieces have also been replaced. Under the dash is tidy, and features new wiring. On that note, the rest of the wiring is all new as well. The dash is now a custom setup from Covan’s Classics and features all modern Auto-Meter Gauges. They are accurate, easy to read and really shine at night time.

2010 Ford Mustang GT – THE KONQUISTADOR by Reifen Koch

2010 Ford Mustang GT - THE KONQUISTADOR by Reifen Koch - Muscle Cars BlogTHE KONQUISTADOR by Reifen Koch

In 1964 Ford let the first Mustang come into the world. The model took its place quickly as an alternative to already legendary Thunderbird and became an ancestor to a new generation of the Pony-Car Class. Through different intermediate states and countless niche models and at last we came up to the Mustang V, a model created in 2004.

In this article we will speak about this kind of V8-daredevil with 4.6 L engine capacity and 309 kW. In order to significantly improve the Optics of the advanced Retro-Design vehicle that belonged to the popular movie stars for a long time, we installed the Cervini-Bodykit for 8,000 Euro. We also installed a specially featured exhaust system which included side pipes at both ends to ensure the smooth operation of the hard bar. Moreover, this tomboy is equipped with KW-coilovers with electrically lifting axles and HLS (Hydraulic Lift System) Kit, which solved such well-known problems caused by its smaller ground clearance as emissions on the roadway, problem garage entry and covered parking entry and also problems with so-called speed-blocker. We also installed the Brembo braking system so that the Mustang could slow down well. Read more!

Tony Hawk “Hawkized” 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0

Tony Hawk "Hawkized" 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 - Muscle Cars BlogBuilding cool cars for charity is nothing new, but this 2011 Mustang has a better pedigree than most of those auction flyers that make a big splash and then vanish forever. Built with input from skateboarder Tony Hawk and assembled by the guys at Galpin Auto Sports (you know, the same guys who build the hardware on the hit TV show “Pimp My Ride”), this is no paint and sticker upgrade, but a comprehensive redesign of the 2011 Mustang that addresses everything from horsepower to interior accommodations.

The 2011 Mustang is new in a lot of ways, but the styling was left alone after the 2010 update, so that’s where Tony and Galpin Auto Sports started. A 0-mile Mustang GT was secured and shipped directly to Galpin’s shop, where the transformation took place. The first change was the addition of a Street Scene body kit, which includes a custom front fascia, rocker skirts, upper and lower side scoops, a new rear valence, as well as a trick wing that is surprisingly low profile in today’s tuner world. Brilliant silver paint covers every inch of the bodywork, and has been polished and buffed well beyond factory specification. Black graphics were added, a design that echoes the past greats like the Boss 302, but with a modern twist. The hood was also blacked-out and creates a stripe that extends to the rear deck lid and even between the tail lights, and a custom Tony Hawk logo was emblazoned on its surface, reminiscent of a 21st century Firebird. Gothic-looking Tony Hawk initials adorn the front fenders and Tony’s signature has been added to the rear bumper. Nobody is going to mistake this for a garden-variety Mustang. Read more!
