When you think of creating an American muscle car, for the most part, you think of building a mean, dark and badass car. I guess due to the history of muscle cars and it’s themes this is kind of just how it has been. It really hasn’t been until recently where builders have gotten really creative with color combinations with interiors and wheels. It think it’s awesome when we see new and different sides of how a car is built. Sometimes a look we would have never thought would have work, but does. The White Camaro below really shows your car can still look badass and not be black with blood red accents and a tattoo’d owner. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. With an awesome stance this Camaro is all class and badass.
Why isn’t this builder well known in the automotive world? I means I don’t know about the classic car community, but you really don’t hear about him at all anywhere else. At his very least, this guy has to be one of the most creative, talented, and artistic car builders I’ve ever seen. And he builds every car from scratch? Seriously, why isn’t there some cool, creative video on this guy or his creations? It takes a lot to be blown away now-a-days, but this guy truly has made a piece of art. This thing is absolutely insane!!
After a very long day spent around Honda’s, taking a buddy home in Queens, tired as hell, we were immediately woken up by two incredible muscle cars rolling in the opposite direction. Of course we did what any cars nuts would do and pulled a u-turn as soon as we could. What we had saw were two SICK Dodge Coronet’s. It was one of those surreal moments when you see a car in NY streets that you would find in a magazine. It was a pretty amazing moment. You really can’t get any better then classic American muscle rolling through NYC streets. I found a couple vids of the cars and thought I would share. So dope!
So it has always just been kinda known that when you talk about air bag suspension, your talking about a show car. But there is something that over years people might not get. Things get better, more reliable, more simplified. I am seeing, especially in the muscle car world, that they are using air ride suspension on their track cars. I’m not talking about full blown race cars but cars that get thrashed around the track every weekend. Sometime’s we have to remind ourselves that things always improve when there is a market. Bags have gotten very reliable, and like I said very simplified. Weight is not as much an issue as it was before. So if your torn between bags and coilovers because you want to be low and still perform well, don’t be. Air bags are very capable. Below is a pretty good example. We all know Evo’s are really fast cars, but we also know they look sick slammed to the ground. He’s got the best of both worlds. Props.
We are all familiar with the word restoration when it comes to replacing every nut and bolt on a old car, hopefully making it better then when it came out of the factory. But restorations are a common word in the american world, with the muscle and classic cars. Now that the classic Japanese cars are getting older, we are starting to see some full restorations pop up here and there. The one below, really caught my eye, because it’s the first 240z that I’ve seen with a full blown restoration and then some. So dope. I really hope to see more like this in the states. Heck, I would love to do it myself.
