1968 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.

The Best of The Best: Mecum Chicago 2022

If you didn’t get to tune into Mecum Chicago, not to fear, CA is here. Well, us and the good people over at MotorTrend who pulled out the best of the best from the auction for our collective viewing pleasure. Oh, did we mention they happen to be American-made? We’ll try to act surprised (you know we’re not). Anyway, this spotlight includes a Ford Mustang, a Chevy Chevelle and a Cadillac Eldorado. Let us know what you think – who rises to the top?

The 70’s Restored: 1971 Road Runner

There’s nothing like having your eye on a piece of American muscle for decades and finally being able to call it yours. That’s the case for David Freiburger and this 1971 Plymouth Road Runner that he’s wanted for 20-plus years. It was a decent car when he got his hands on it, mostly original with 95,000 miles on the dash. But a repaint gone bad and ill-fitting tires we’re begging for this ride to be restored, and that’s exactly what Roadkill Garage did. Check out the full restoration, right here. Enjoy.
