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.
Money from the sale donated to the Karmanos Cancer Institute
NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick loves buying first-built Chevrolet models for charity. He paid $1 million to buy the first production 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible and $650,000 to get the first 2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28.
April 17, 2014 is the fiftieth anniversary of the Ford Mustang. This isn't just the year of Ford's legendary pony car, though. It also marks the fiftieth anniversary of the debut of Chrysler's entry into the pony car wars - the Plymouth Barracuda.
The camouflage on top of the car made it seem smaller and hid its true shape from prying eyes
How do you keep one of the most hotly anticipated cars under wraps from spying eyes? Ford spent a lot of time working on camouflaging the 2015 Ford Mustang with vinyl and foam to conceal the real shape of the car beneath the covers.
To mark the Mustang's 50th anniversary, the company tracked down customer No. 1. That's right, the first customer took possession of the classic back when Lyndon Johnson was president and the Beatles were just getting started in America.
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.
Lamborghini celebrated its 50th anniversary in pretty remarkable style with the unveiling of its Veneno supercar at the Geneva Auto Show -- an utterly insane vehicle displaying scoops, wings, fins and an absurd amount of carbon fiber.
Caroll Shelby is a hero to many a car lover as the designer and creator of the Shelby Cobra muscle car. He died May 10 at age 89, and in his death his body is being fought over by his children and the last of his seven wives.
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.
Flaunting Stereotypes, These Women Love Their Muscle Cars
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
They can keep their retail therapy, we have configurator therapy. It soaks up just as much time, you can get your "help" in your jammies, and provided you don't go through with a purchase, it's much, much cheaper.
