Bagged 1967 Ford F100 Pays Tribute to Owner’s Deceased Wife

Like a big old pig with a belly that drags the ground, this pickup gets about as low as you can go. What started out as a cab-only project (with a straight six) has morphed into this incredible cruiser that we are blessed to witness today. Lou’s wife (also a 1967 model) has recently passed away so, excuse him for being a bit emotional. He built this cruiser as a rolling tribute to her. The project began the right way; with a Roadster Shop rolling chassis (including Baer brakes). Lou added AccuAir air ride on all four corners. This feature Read More

Open Tire Cash Days From the I-29 Dragstrip

So, this dragstrip Cash Days has a little different flair to it. No Big Tire or Small Tire Classes here. It’s a run-what-ya-brung open tire affair. The only criteria is that you must have steel roof and quarters. Other than that, it’s wide open. Thirteen cars at $350 each with an 80/20 split. That’s some serious money. The first whip that we run across is a fabulous Fox Box Mustang. It has a twin turbo 540 cubic-inch big block making 1,500hp. This thing is burning methanol and it’s mated to a TH400 automatic transmission. The rear end and axles are Read More

C7 Corvette Z06 vs. Audi Twin Turbo RS – Mexico Streets

Meanwhile down South… It is the darkest part of the night when a small gathering of automobile enthusiasts finds themselves in the parking lot of a fuel center on the United States border. Before the morning sun has appeared, they will have left U.S. jurisdiction for the open lanes that only a more lawless environment can afford. Here they will ply their craft. Prepare your senses for the sweet smell of racing fuel, the stench of burnt rubber and the thunderous roar of high-performance engines. You will ride along (virtually) as these competitors attempt to leap through the fleeting flame Read More

1100HP 1930 Ford Model A Sedan Rail Job – Drag Racing

Greetings drag racing fans. Allow me to introduce you to Butch. He is the proud owner (and fabricator) of this one-of-a-kind 1930 Ford Model A Sedan Rail Job. Let’s take a closer look at what makes this contraption click. Out front is a massive blown 542 cubic-inch Brodix big block. Shifting duties are left to a 4-speed Lenco transmission with air-assist shifting. The big blower is a GMC 871 making 25-pounds of boost. This pre-war brute has dyno’d a 942hp number to the rear wheels. The front suspension and rear differential are new so, we get to tag along as Read More

Import vs. Domestic Street Duels – Audi, BMW, Toyota, Ford & Chevy

It’s about to get real crazy on the interstate tonight. Modified import and domestic owners have gathered to talk smack, admire one another’s machines and – above all – race on the interstate (of Mexico). Roll racing is on the agenda. The evening kicks off with a pair of E50 tuned cars going at it. The first is a Toyota MKV Supra with a performance exhaust downpipe. The other is a BMW 240i with a full accoutrement of bolt-ons. We have multiple hits here. The Supra gains the advantage in most of them. Next up is a tussle between an Read More

Turbo Chevy Silverado vs. Twin Turbo Genesis G70 – This vs. That

In this installment, we have an unlikely pairing between a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado and a 2021 Genesis G70 sedan. These two vehicles will be competing in a series of drag races on a closed course in an undisclosed location. Now, let’s check out the rides. The pickup is a rear-wheel drive Silverado with a Thompson Racing engine (370 cubic-inch) and a massive turbo. It’s running a 4-speed automatic transmission (4L80E) and it weighs 4,300-pounds. Whoa! That’s a heavy Cowboy Cadillac. Despite the extra girth, this truck has turned a 10-second quarter-mile (maybe faster). It is estimated to have a maximum Read More

Big Block Mini Cooper – 7-Second Screamer

This thing is out of bounds! It’s a 2011 Mini Cooper Clubman with a stock steel body (power windows intact). What’s not stock is the 7-second (quarter-mile) elapsed times that this blue streak cranks out with great regularity. Just look at those big, fat rear tires – this thing is for real! Under the hood is a 565 cubic-inch Dart Racing engine with nitrous. It’s all-aluminum (block and heads) and it can produce nearly 1,000hp. The remainder of the powertrain consists of a 2-speed Powerglide transmission and a (narrowed) Ford 9-inch rear end. The car weighs 2,750-pounds (with the driver) Read More
