Most Honest Viper Craigslist Ad Ever

Okay. Full disclosure. I almost killed myself in it. It is VERY powerful. Extremely, EXTREMELY fast. I’ve driven Ferrari’s that don’t feel as crazy as this thing. I am frankly afraid of it now. That’s right. It’s in my garage and I’m afraid to drive it because it’s like a crazy steroid bull that wants to kill me. I’ve done 130 mph on a Ducati while laughing into the face of death. The viperis a completely different bowl of crack. The engine sounds like 40 pit bulls eating kittens while…

1969 Plymouth Road Runner Commercial Motor Trends Car of the Year

In this day and age, it might seem like most measures of advertising are refined and watered down versions of what car companies could really head out there and accomplish with an aggressive vision, but back in the 60s and 70s, there wasn’t really a path for the companies to take when it came to ads on television, so things got creative. This time, we let nostalgia make its way to the pages of Speed Society as we check out a Motor Trend Car of the Year announcement advertisement as the 1969 Plymouth Road…

Why the Ford Flathead V8 Succeeded, and Why It Had to Die

The Ford Flathead V8 wasn’t the first V8, but when it debuted in the 1932 Model 18, it brought this brilliant engine configuration to the American masses. With a simple design featuring a flat cylinder head (hence the name) that placed intake and exhaust valves next to the cylinder, this V8 was incredibly cheap to mass produce. And it was this same cylinder head design that forced it out of production in 1953. Using a 3D-printed model of a Flathead V8, Engineering Explained’s Jason Fenske goes through why this engine was perfect for its…

Time capsule 1987 Buick Grand National being auctioned on Ebay

Why Pushrod Engines Have a Low Redline

Pushrod engines are great for a lot of reasons. They’re compact, they’re simple, and if done right, they sound good. But one drawback of the pushrod design is that it can’t rev as high as a comparable overhead-cam engine. Pushrod engines are unique in that the camshaft is inside the cylinder block—not on top in the cylinder head. This makes engine height shorter, allowing for a more compact design. The downside is that the camshaft rotation has to travel through a pushrod and a rocker arm, which pushes a spring down…

Named ‘The Zeppelin Roadliner’ by the famed customiser Art Himsl, this unusual vehicle is one he bought in the 1960’s.

Today the immaculately presented Zeppelin boasts a 350cubic inch V8 Chevy engine, push button automatic transmission, air-ride suspension, a refrigerator, microwave oven…

Why the straight-six engine is making a comeback

The V8 engine has long ruled the world of luxury cars, thanks to glass-smooth grunt and a delicious howl under duress. But tightening fuel-economy regulations are encouraging the use of smaller piston counts, and on the standardized tests that automakers use for fuel-efficiency ratings, the average downsized, turbocharged V6 uses less fuel than an equally powerful V8. That may seem win-win, but don’t be won over. Engineers don’t fantasize about V6s—accountants do. The V6 layout has proliferated because it “packages well,” a sexless industry term that’s code for “easy to…

4 Muscle Car Alternatives For $3500

Not everyone wants a Mustang or Camaro. For one thing they’re cop magnets, and for the younger buyers, they usually come with ridiculous insurance premiums because, well, they tend to get wrecked. A lot.

So for the discriminating American petrolhead looking for a good V8 rear-wheel drive fix on a $3500 budget, here are four muscle car alternatives worthy of your attention. 1. 1994-1996 Chevrolet Caprice Old-school muscle car DNA…
