One Ton Of Fun

To paraphrase a Bruce Willis flick, we see slammed dualies.

QuikStang

Before Pro Touring, before G-Machines, before every Fox body Mustang on the planet got a supercharger, big brakes, and ludicrous horsepower, there was QuikStang.

Street Gasser

Joe Chiurco is an old fashioned kind of guy. He takes things easy in a go-like-mad world. Computers and electronic gadgets do absolutely nothing for him. The Atkins Diet? Forget it.

The Un-Pro Streeter

In our humble opinion, the second generation Camaro is one of the cleanest American car designs ever. At least it was before GM disco-fied the poor thing with fake scoops, spoilers, and tape stripes, anyway. Still, it’s hard to believe it was designed in 1960s Detroit.

Merit Badge Special

The Boy Scouts sure have changed a lot since we were lads.

Project 342

Keven Kyser earns his living shooting aircraft as an aerial photographer/cinematographer for Lockheed-Martin. Pretty exciting job, right? Apparently it isn't nearly exciting enough for Keven, ’cause he spends his weekends hustling this 1986 Mustang GT down the racetrack.

Sport ConsTRUCKtion, Part Two: Extreme Makeover

In our last exciting episode, we began the transformation of our lifted 2003 Ford F-150 into a hip, with-it sport truck by installing a Ridetech airbag suspension setup. Now we have the ability to put the Ford on the pavement for shows and bring it up to ride height for cruising—about 8 inches of height adjustment at the touch of a button.

Sport ConsTRUCKtion, Part One: Layin’ Frame with Air Ride Technologies

As we transformed our 2003 Ford F-150 from a rugged outdoorsy vehicle into a hip, happenin’ sport truck, the starting point was pretty much a given. We had to drop the extended cab pickup out of the sky and back down to Mother Earth.

Kitchen Goat

Kitchen tables are marvelously adaptable pieces of furniture. In addition to serving as the family feeding trough, kitchen tables can be used as craft centers, debating forums, and poker dens. You can even build cars on ’em—just ask Rick Bogoff.

Rated Z

This country is obsessed with rating things. Thumbs up or thumbs down. Good, better, best. Four out of five stars. From movies to soda pop, actresses’ Oscar dresses and yes, cars, we Americans love to rate our stuff.

But we had a tough time figuring out a way to rate Mike Zayas’ 1969 Chevelle SS396. With a classic Pro Street stance, a breathed-on 502 crate motor, and subtly altered body lines, the car kind of defies categorization.

Not that it matters much to Mike. He just wanted a way-cool Chevelle. “I built this car because I always wanted a Pro Street ’69,” he explained to us, ” I had a ’69 Malibu, which I sold it to build this one. I guess I love working on old cars.”

The Chevelle’s chassis is a mixture of stock and aftermarket. The stock frame was backhalfed and fitted with an Art Morrison four-link suspension and a narrowed Ford 9 inch rear axle with Strange 31-spline axles, center section, and 4.11 gears. The stock front suspension was treated to a rebuild and lowered two inches to boot. A Funny Car-style mild steel roll cage ties everything together.

Under the hood is a GM Performance 502 big block. The bottom end was left alone, but Mike replaced the hydraulic cam with a Comp Cams .584 inch lift roller cam. The 502’s aluminum heads were given a set of Harland Sharp aluminum roller rocker arms, and are covered with a set of shiny Billet Specialties valve covers. The engine came with an aluminum dual plane intake, which is topped by a 750 cfm carburetor. An Accel HEI distributor, Super Coil, and an MSD 6AL box make up the ignition system. A pair of Hedman ceramic coated headers dump exhaust gasses into a pair of three inch stainless pipes, the sound of the 502 barely subdued by two-chamber Flowmaster mufflers. A Rossler-built Turbo 400 directs 525 horsepower and 567 foot-pounds of torque back to the 33 inch Mickey Thompsons.
