This Ford Granada’s 1700hp Koenigsegg heart transplant will blow your grandpa’s socks off

The Ford Granada of the late ’70s is hardly what you’d call exciting. More of something you’d see driven by an old man inhis 70s, right? We thought so, too… until a guy out of the UK decided to give his Granada a heart transplant. You can guess where this is going. Swapping out the 600hp (447kW) Cosworth engine he had installed in 2008, this guy then dropped in a 4.7-litre V8 from the Koenigsegg CCX. With twin-turbochargers added, the big ‘8 boasts an insane power output of 1700 horsepower, or 1267kW in the…

Nine new AC Cobras to be built to exact 1962 specification

AC Cars will built nine new aluminium-bodied AC Cobras as part of a ‘legacy’ series. Priced at £500,000 before taxes, the cars will be built to the exact specification of the very first 1962 Cobra, which was sold at auction in Monterey a few weeks ago. That sale raised £10.2 million and made the original Cobra, powered by a 260-cubic-inch (4.25-litre) Ford V8, the most valuable road-going British car to have been sold at auction. The nine new cars will be known as the AC Cobra Mk1 260 Legacy Edition. They will be handbuilt…

For Sale: 80-Acre, 8,000 Car Idaho Junkyard and $3,000,000 to Own It !

I am glad that my kids were not sitting in close proximity when I opened the email that informed me of the sale of L&L Classic Auto in Wendell, Idaho. Once I saw the ariel photos of nearly 100 acres full of cars, trucks, buildings and literally millions of parts, I muttered some swear words. We’re not talking shallow end of the pool kind of bad words, I went for the stuff that makes hardened criminals stop on their tracks. We have previously showed you junkyards and parts business that…

1959 Chevy Impala Pond Find!

We’ve all heard of yard art, but have you ever heard of pond art?

They claim it ran when it was parked, it was never smoked in and is mostly complete. They are finally ready to let it go…

THESE MAY BE THE RAREST OF THE CLASSIC MUSCLE CARS

WITH ONLY ABOUT 200 PRODUCED IN 1969, THE YENKO CAMARO IS ONE OF THOSE 1967-69 MUSCLE CARS THAT REPRESENTS THE BEST OF THE SPORTY HIGH-HORSEPOWER DREAM CARS OF THAT ERA. Don Yenko’s Chevrolet dealership’s High Performance Division would order a COPO package car which would include an L72 big block 450HP 427 engine, a heavy duty M21 4 speed transmission and power disk brakes. The Sports car conversion option also included a 4.10 ratio rear end, a heavy duty 13/16 inch sway bar, an extra gauge panel and a 140MPH…

Reborn! Totaled SRT8 Charger Becomes 1969 Dodge Daytona!

As improbable as it seems, one man—nearly by himself—is transforming a wrecked 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 into a 1969 Dodge Daytona clone in his home garage. Typically, mixing and matching such dissimilar vehicle platforms results in a hideously proportioned vehicle that shares little of the original car’s beauty or the newer car’s functionality. This example, however, is drop-dead gorgeous, and it isn’t even finished yet. If there is one guy who is uniquely qualified to pull off such a stunt, it’s Steve Mirabelli. A Mopar fanatic since he was a…

BARN FIND: 1969 DODGE DAYTONA CHARGER

We love a good barn find, and this ’69 Dodge Daytona Charger certainly qualifies as one of those. It was found in a barn in mid-Alabama, and it’s just one of only 503 ever built. The forgotten automobile sat in a barn for over four decades before being rediscovered. The owner of the car, who purchased the vehicle in 1972 for $1800, painted flames on the side of the car, and took it down to a beach in Florida for spring break. Shortly after, the owner bumped the nose into…
