If you thought New Yorkers hated muscle cars, you've obviously never looked behind some of those rickety garages in the outer boroughs like Queens, NY. If you did, you'd find more than a few automotive "projects" on the DL.

This week on Big Muscle, Mike Musto returns to his old neighborhood to profile a couple of urban dwellers, a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible and a stunning 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T. Both cars have been heavily updated, but retain their gritty NYness.

That reminds me. Isn't it time someone tried to remake The French Connection?
