The Sexiest Car of the Sixties and perhaps all time?

GM’s second, functional Mako Shark II concept. Photos courtesy GM Media Archives.

In April 1965, a Bill Mitchell-designed concept hit the stage at the New York Auto Show. Though no one in attendance could know it at the time, this car, dubbed the Mako Shark II, would go on to predict not just the shape of the third-generation Corvette, but also an astonishing number of features that would eventually appear on other cars.

@MrWiggly's musclecars: I might suggest you go to Goolgle Search, not Hemmings for the correct story of what Wright/Picasso actually stated about the 1941 Continental. I subscribe to Hemmings Classic Cars. Classic Cars is not always correct. Many errors. The 1941 Continental...

Forgotten Myrtle Motors 428 Firebirds


We ran a story recently on Royal Pontiac and some of the cars and mods they did to Pontiacs back in the 60s and 70s. Some of you reached out to us and reminded us there were a few other dealers who did something similar.

One of them was Myrtle Motors which was located at 61-20 Fresh Pond Rd., Maspeth, NY. Myrtle Motors was also in the business of making fast Pontiacs too, just like Royal Pontiac. Although they never garnered the same attention that Royal Pontiac did, Myrtle Motors built some very fast cars.

Too Much Car? Not One but Two of the Most Over The Top Super Cars in Existence Will be Unveiled at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Monterey

If you Google, "fastest production car in the world" you get a clear unambiguous answer:

Is 258 mph enough? Is it ever? What if we lived in a world in which Bugatti was premiering not one but 2 of THE fastest cars on the planet at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Monterey?

We live in that world. Soon this Google result will be inaccurate.

I saw them test this car (or a close version) on Top Gear on the VW test track where they had a 5 mile straight away. I think they hit the rated top speed of 405 KPH. I believe it was a 10 cylinder with 10 rads?
Just crazy fast.

Hey, Guys,
I think its quite good for cars to push any envelope. Formula 1 used to before Ecelstone (don't care if I mispell it) turned it into NASCAR duplicity. KERS, rpm capabilities, suspension designs, pneumatic valves the list goes on. Drag racers tear the hell out of things, and almost all go-fast improvements to small block...

The 1969 Berger Chevrolet Super Stock Drag Car

Being an older drag racer, I have a lot of memories of cars I owned and raced and cars I raced against. If you ever raced in NHRA Super Stock classes you would have raced against this particular 1969 Camaro, and probably got beat too!

I ran across it again in Floyd Garrett’s Muscle Car Museum in Tennessee. It looked just the same as I remembered it from back in the sixties, even though I usually only saw the back end of it then.

Berger raced what they sold and this 1969 Camaro was run by Dick Arons and Gordy Foust. They had campaigned this Garnet Red Super Stock/E '69 Camaro and won many national events.

Great article, love the pics of the 69 Berger Camaro, I live a few miles from the famous original Yenko Chevrolet dealership in Cannonsburg, Pa. Yenko also turned out serious Chevelle, Camaro, Nova, & Corvair street legal race cars back in the day & are highly prized currently

Big Red 427 Galaxie R-Code Lightweight

I wrote an article last week about visiting a top ten museum on my Bucket List, the Floyd Garrett’s Muscle Car Museum in Tennessee. There were too many cars that I would love to own and I promised to write about some of them. So here is one you might not ever get to see unless you visit the museum too.

It is a dealer prepared 427 Galaxie 500 R-Code Lightweight called “Big Red.” This is a complete frame-off restored race car that saw plenty of action at dragstrips across the country including the “Big Go” U.S. Nationals at Indy as pictured below.

The Ford Galaxie was a full-size car that was built in the United States by Ford for model years 1959 through 1974. The name was used for the top models in Ford's full-size range from 1958 until 1961, in a marketing attempt to appeal to the excitement surrounding the Space Race. For 1962, all full-size Fords wore the Galaxie badge, with "500" and "500/XL" denoting the higher...

A 1967 Corvette 427-435 At Classic Rewind Motor Company

If you ask a lot of people which Corvette they would own (if they could afford it of course) you will hear a lot of different answers. Some might say a 1963 Split Window, while others may say a certain fuelly Vette, or maybe even a newer ZO6.

A lot of readers would choose the 1967 Corvette, especially the 427-435 horse version, as a favorite. I would be in that group, if I couldn’t have a 1969 Corvette ZL1!

I had a chance to own a 1967 Corvette once, and it was a 427 car, but not a 435 horse version. It was fast but not blindingly fast like the 435.

Gunrunner. Happy wife, happy life. I'm not sure, but I think your wife is the reason for the 43 years. Treat her very very well. And I hope you get your vette someday. Aloha.

409 Powered Bubble Top Bel Air Breaks Into The Top-10 In Portland

In 1962, full-size Chevrolet shoppers could order a V-8 in a variety of Biscayne, Bel Air and Impala models, with a factory-rated output of up to 425 horsepower. Drag racers with ties to Chevrolet were producing considerably more horsepower than that, thanks to special parts not available to the general public. Today, many of these once-unobtanium parts can be sourced, so if building a period-correct hot rod, why not go with the tried and true? One such car, a 1962 Chevrolet “Bubble Top” Bel Air, powered by a Z11 409 V-8, proved the merits of this approach by selling for $110,000 in Portland last weekend, enough to crack the muscle-car-heavy sale’s top-10.

"I Am The Greatest": A Tribute To The Late Muhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali, "The Greatest", one of the most beloved (and feared if you were an opponent) boxers in any weight class of all time, passed away this weekend.

Ali died Friday at a Phoenix-area hospital, where he had spent the past few days being treated for respiratory complications. He was 74. He had a 32-year battle with Parkinson's disease, a progressive neurological condition that slowly robbed him of both his verbal grace and his physical dexterity. A funeral service is planned in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.

Ali remains the only three-time lineal world heavyweight champion; he won the title in 1964, 1974, and 1978. Between February 25, 1964 and September 19, 1964 Muhammad Ali reigned as the undisputed heavyweight boxing champion.

I like Ali.He definitely was a formital combatant. As he was known as the Greatest because of his outside the ring help for others goes unnoticed. But I have to point out one important fact. To be the greatest in the ring one cannot lose fights. There was only one such...
