1950 Chevrolet: Morrison Farm Truck

When Craig Morrison of Art Morrison Enterprises saw this 1950 Chevy pickup he bought it on the spot. The 3100 Series is a quintessential American Farm truck and this one (pictured above) was just wasting away in disrepair. This pickup has been restored with special attention to the chassis. Thanks to Morrison, this little farm truck has been given a second chance at life – all in its original style. From the interior design to the exterior paint, this truck’s heritage is very intact.

Hennessey Performance: The Venom F5 Will Go 300 MPH

Hennessey Performance rarely lets us down. They bring us some of the most beautiful (and powerful) modified rides to hit the drag strip. Their most recent challenge? To build the fastest production car in the world. The title has recently been claimed by the Koenigsegg Agera RS. Hennessey claims the Venom F5 will be able to make 300 mph. That would be just a hair more than Agera RS’s 284 mph. Question here is, is it possible? We’re talking about the pure physics and engineering, for a street legal care to be able to go 300 mph.

There are a few issues Hennessey will have to conquer for this to work. The biggest one? Making enough horsepower and using the right tires to support it. So sure, we think 300 mph is possible, but it certainly won’t be simple. Check out this episode of Engineering Explained and watch Jason Fenske do his best to explain the complexities of the 300 mph feat in just seven-minutes. Fair warning, this video is filled with lots of math, formulas, and graphs. We also don’t blame you if you need to watch it twice… (we did). Enjoy.

The C8 Corvette Will Have 850 Horsepower

Don’t you just love a good leak? We sure do. And especially when it involves debatebly Detroits worst kept secret, aka the C8 Corvette’s existence. The spotlight might be on the C7 ZR-1, but the upcoming C8 has our full attention. The first ever mid-engined Corvette is rumored to be unveiled in January. Lucky for us, a certain Corvette Forum user has leaked a market analysis document from IHS Markit that gives us not only proof of the mid-engined Corvette, but also the multiple engine options. (Three, to be exact).

Let’s start with those engine options, shall we? Three different V8s will be offered. Two of those are DOHC V8s, a 4.2-liter and a 5.5-liter. The third, the mid-engined C8, will get the 6.2-liter V8 and will have an average annual production of 14,000 units from 2019 until 2021. Now, for the horsepower. The leaked document lists the maximum output of the new engine family as 850 hp and 720 lb-ft of torque. We are sure we’ll learn more as Detroit approaches. Stay tuned.

Trash to Treasure: Rebuilt ’68 Dodge Charger

What do you get when you mix ’68 muscle with an old motorhome? One hell of a rat rod. It all began with a crazy cheap Dodge Charger and a bright idea to amp it up. The guys from Motor Trend’s Roadkill stuffed the car with a 440 big-block from a Class A Dodge Pace Arrow motorhome. Yeah, you read that right…a motorhome. Throw in a few extra parts from a retired Plymouth Fury and you’ve got more action than some muscle cars have in their entire chassis. Check out the process below; we dare you not to be inspired.
