This Mercury Cougar Eliminator, dressed in sporty Competition Orange paint, is claimed to be an unrestored "survivor."
The US Marshal's so-called Blood Muscle Auction was completed earlier this month, with the prestigious nine-car field (two cars were added following Autoblog's initial story, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 and a rare, mid-restoration 1971 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda) finding new and hopefully law-abiding owners.
Brian and Samantha Styles have amassed quite a collection of classic muscle cars in a collection they call The Zoo. Containing some seriously rare metal, the collection seems decidedly tilted towards Mopar offerings, although it's hardly exclusive to the Pentastar. The video is an interesting look into a collector's world, with the couple explaining that their collection isn't an attempt to have as many cars as possible, but to have the right cars. As for the name of their collection, it's a ref
Today's horses must be Clydesdale-class, at least when compared to the horses we were saddling up back in the 1960s and early '70s. How else can you explain the real-world performance figures of yesteryear, when muscle cars were routinely pushing out well over 400 horsepower and quarter-mile timeslips in the 14s, with the 12-second runs we see today from a similar number of (rated) ponies? Well, actually, there are a number of reasons... and none of them has anything to do with a four-legged hor
After causing major buzz in January at the Detroit Auto Show with the showing of the all-new redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, General Motors is trying to do the same with Europeans by showing the convertible version this week at the Geneva International Motor Show.
Let there be no doubt: Classic American muscle cars are the bread and butter of the Woodward Dream Cruise. And why not? These machines hearken back to a time when horsepower was king, nameplates like Mustang, Camaro, GTO and Charger first started rolling off the tongue and Detroit was at the forefront of the automotive world.
Whoever said that only men have the need for speed? Not Tracey Richardson of Lexington, Kentucky, who drives a 2010 Corvette Grand Sport with a 6.2-liter V8 engine that rides herd over 430 ponies. And not Tamara Wong of Dublin, California, who gets her motoring kicks behind the wheel of a 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8, which is powered by a 6.1-liter V8 that delivers 425 horsepower. It’s true
One way journalists get to evaluate new cars is to attend press events. These events are tightly choreographed. Schedules must be maintained and driving routes followed. But on a recent trip to North Carolina, serendipity struck. Ford had scheduled a stop at a small, local racetrack called Ace Speedway. Of the dozen or so cars in our group, we were the first to reach the 4/10th-mile paved oval. Br
