Remember that Daytona we talked about a week or so ago? It’s now on the auction block at Mecum. Straight from the original owner to the auction, and the bidding starts at 310k. This rare ride (only 500 of these were produced) is sure to be a big ticket item. Watch it all go down, right here.
Ford Mustang GT’s are great whether they’ve been modified or not. That’s just a fact. No one should feel lame about buying a GT and keeping it stock. Its 400 hp and 5.0-liter V8 is plenty to keep things interesting. We’ve seen all kinds of sick modified Mustangs over the years, with the occasional bad apple (it happens.) Gears and Gasoline recently got together with Mustang GT owner Ryan who decided to give his ride an extra 600hp, just for kicks.
The additional power comes from a 930whp ProCharger centrifugal supercharger, which gives the GT a total of just under 1,000 hp. That winds up being more than the Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Woah. Check out the video below to see just what it’s like to be behind the wheel of a Mustang GT with this much power. Enjoy.
Today we have for you a rare beauty. One of only 503 Dodge Charger Daytona’s made in 1969. Back then, NASCAR was referred to as stock car racing on a count of the fact that the cars were based on and built from real production cars and drivetrains. When American manufacturers were designing new cars around this time, they were keeping aerodynamics in mind to keep them out in front during races. This was back when Ford, Chevy, and Mopar were going head to head to head on the racetrack in hopes that it would translate into real sales. Check out one of those racecars that hit the dealership lots, right here.
On a recent episode of Roadkill by MotorTrend, Freiburger and Finnegan meet up with Vice Grip Garage owner Derek Bieri to take a 1968 big-block Dart on a road trip. This isn’t your ordinary road trip (not that we think you would assume as much). It’s a tire-smoking, drag-hitting, all-out ride that puts this classic to the test. Check it out, right here. Enjoy.
