Americans have a thing for speed. This is quite evident in the 1960s and 1970s production of wild and quite rare muscle cars that had giant V8 engines with powerful torques. The 1980s introduced more powerful machines capable of faster speeds and more compatible with the then stringent emission controls.

Don Stanley of Bay City, Mich. found the parts for his one-of-a-kind chariot from no less than 28 other cars. It was an automotive jigsaw puzzle of the highest order—requiring the piecing together of such parts as a 1964 Thunderbird interior, 1972 Pinto doors, 1982 Chevy transmission, and a 1932 Chevrolet rear bumper. Stanley writes that there is “no main body.” Pictures of the Stanmobile make for a good guessing game. Which part comes from what car? Hint: It’s all good-old American metal.

The Abandoned Dealership Full Of Classic Cars

All across this great nation of ours, there are countless buildings like the one featured in this video from the Amesie’s Automotive Corner YouTube channel. In a small town in New Hampshire stands an abandoned car dealership that still has several cars both inside and out. The cars clearly aren’t for sale and the property is surrounded by signs warning against trespassing. Clearly somebody out there has some sort of plan for these cars, but it seems they’re letting time take a significant toll on them while waiting to carry out that…

Modded Chevy Truck Might Be The Craziest Thing We’ve Ever Seen

Even though we understand why some people enjoy sitting as far away as possible from the nose of their car, this guy definitely took that concept to ridiculous extremes – if that was indeed his intention. At the same time, this is also a very interesting mod, seen as how you’re not going to find anything similar roaming the streets, no matter where you live.

The only thing visible was a bit of grille and a pair of headlights under a pile of debris. It was unearthed to reveal that it was a remarkably intact 1933 Plymouth roadster, complete…

Return of the inline-six: Why the classic engine layout is making a comeback

Nearly 70 years since it was blown away by the high-compression Oldsmobile Rocket V8, the inline-six engine is poised to make a comeback. I’m not the first to connect these dots, but the reason for the return of the inline-six has everything to do with manufacturing efficiency and not because of an inherent fault of the V-6. As V-8s fade away, the V-6s they spawned will also diminish in numbers.

The Trump administration’s proposed auto and auto part tariffs may claim an unexpected casualty: The more than 20 million Americans who spend an estimated $1.5 billion annually on classic and antique cars, trucks and motorcycles, according to specialized insurer Hagerty Group. Though many classic car sales are by wealthy collectors and cost in the tens of millions, the average classic vehicle’s value is less than $35,000, according to Hagerty Group. “The hot rodders, the tinkerers, the people who modify cars — that’s a really, really big thing in America,” says Mark Hyman, who runs Hyman Ltd., a…
