1970 Mustang Boss 302 Trans Am Racer To Hit The Auction Block

1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Trans Am

Further acknowledging what we here at Motor City Muscle Cars have long known, American race cars are not only worth saving, but they are also a serious investment opportunity. Last year RM sold a 1965 Shelby GT350 R for just a touch under $1,000,000.00. That is some serious coin for a Mustang. And while this […]

Cadillac Kicks Down The Door With The New 640HP 2016 Cadillac CTS-V

2016-Cadillac-CTS-V

Dear Lincoln, What happened to us? We used to be so close, but you’ve grown more and more distant as the years have gone by. When I bought my first Mark VII we had so much fun together, doing burnouts, drag racing, and eating up hundreds of highway miles at warp speed in quiet comfort. […]

MRT’s TKO 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost 2.3L Rolls Out At SEMA 2014

2015 MRT TKO Mustang

Scott Hoag has a funny sense of humor. Back in 2011 Scott’s team at MRT decided to take a different path and customize a lowly V6 Mustang. Yes, the same car your parents bought your little sister for graduation. But Scott had a plan, one that included bolting on a ProCharger and pushing the little […]

1982 Jeep Scrambler Ambulance

Scramblers are awesome, let’s just go ahead and make that statement now. While the short wheelbase of the CJ is great offroad, there are times when a bit more room is a welcome addition. The folks at Horton Ambulance (still in business by the way) saw the potential of the Scrambler chassis as a nice […]

Ringbrothers 1966 Chevelle

Over the years Mike and Jim Ring, aka “The Ringbrothers” have created some amazing show cars.

This is “Recoil” and it is a 1966 Chevelle […]

Street Race: 2015 Mustang GT Versus 2014 Mustang GT

Now that 2015 Ford Mustangs are landing in dealer showrooms it was just a matter of time before videos like this started popping up. To be fair this isn’t the most scientific comparison ever conducted but at least. For one, the 2014 GT is equipped with an automatic transmission while the 2015 GT is rocking […]

Driven: 2015 Chevrolet Colorado & GMC Canyon

I have mixed emotions about my love affair with Chevrolet’s small truck offerings. Back in high school I owned a 1988 Chevrolet S-10 4×4 with the woefully inadequate 2.8L V6 engine. The size was perfect for my needs but I can think of few engines that match the sheer miserableness of that 2.8L. Once the […]

1968 Cobra Jet Drag Strip Launch

There’s no denying we love old muscle & pony cars around here (hence the name of the site). But what we love even more are old pony¬† cars getting thrashed on the track. The driver of this 1968 Mustang Cobra Jet hits it hard on the launch and dribbles the front end a few times […]
