I owned two beast in my younger days, a 1966 Chevy Chevelle SS with a L88 427 rated at 435 plus HP and a 1970 Dodge R/T with a 426 hemi that was rated at 425 HP.
My brother had a 1969 Pontiac Judge with a 400 cu. in. V8 rated at 365 HP and was an orange color. This car is still in the the family and has been in indoor storage since 1990/91.

The Judge was quick but not as quick as my R/T. Did you own a Judge? My brothers had somewhere in the neighborhood of 200K hard miles on it when it was put on blocks. Body and interior is still in good shape but is in need of an engine overhaul. Guess it will be up to the kids or grand kids to do that.

I never drove anything that gave me a bigger grin than that AMX.

I owned a 1968 Firebird convertible

1971 Z28 with every performance option and a few added later

I currently own a Vanquish V8 forerunner called a BigBrute. Mine is slightly custom, if you call frame up modified.

First place ABATE bike show in 2000 before the additions.

ZZ4 Crate Engine expanded.

Top speed, 121mph first gear, 258mph second gear.

The smoke is a 360 burnouts at tire changing time.

how about some modern day muscle?

they don't start out with much Hp from the factory, being that they're "truck motors" built for towing, but the modern day 5.9L 360 V8 responds to the same hop up parts as the older 360s, but with MUCH better heads. stock long blocks from the factory are capable of 400 crank hp with just a cam swap, headers, and an intake swap. (plus computer reprogramming, since you can't swap jets, twist the distributor, etc. to tune them)

(not all that impressive, tires were rock hard and didn't smoke like I wanted)
http://youtu.be/RISivza9lWc

(softer tires, more smoke...this one is more impressive to watch)
http://youtu.be/BtS8DxTX9kk

First truck I built.... Chrysler 383 big block, stroked to 438 inches, high compression, aluminum heads, TKO-600 5-spd manual, 4.56 rear gears, suspension mods, the whole 9 yards. engine made 505 hp and 535 ft lbs of torque at the crank. Never could get it to hook up at the track (Never used slicks) so it was running mid 13s at 107mph. not too bad for a 4200 lb brick! (also the first video I ever put together, so it's a bit rough)

http://youtu.be/sgkOx73GIw4

then there's the video of the complete build that I did for the black truck:

http://youtu.be/v3kYcAUXjR0


and not only do I like to make them go fast...I like to make them STOP fast too! custom viper brake install:

My cuda obviously has a LOT of work to go. this was my daily driver in college. 70 Cuda, 383 automatic car. red when I bought it, but I've found it's one of a handful of cars that a dealership custom ordered from the factory with a 2-tone paint job. They put them together for the St Louis Blues hockey team, and used them as promotional/dealer demo cars before selling them to the public. the car is supposed to have a white body and blue roof.

Currently:



(If you look close at the A-Pillar, you can see what remains of the original white/blue paint combo that lies under the orange paint...which is under the red paint)


approximately what it should look like when finished:
