This is when you’re really glad you had to install that parachute.
The 2014 SEMA show was a very good one for American muscle, with cars like the Ford Mustang King Cobra and the revival of the famous Yenko Camaro. But the SEMA Muscle Crown (Is that a thing? It should be a thing) goes to a car called "Recoil." It's a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle with 980 horsepower and an interior that's…
Having four SS Chevys plus a 1968 Camaro parked in a fitting garage close to some desert roads in sunny California is not a bad way of spending retirement.
Welcome to Little Car in the Big City, where I highlight fascinating cars I found walking around a town that is known for being bigger than everything else, but where every car is fighting to stand out: New York, New York.
News that the legendary Chevrolet Chevelle nameplate may be making a comeback yesterday was mainly met with trepidation rather than optimism, even among the most hardcore GM faithful. As much as we all would like to see the Chevelle come back as a muscular coupe with a V8 — or maybe even that 420-horsepower V6 from…
I feel like General Motors has done a good job lately of introducing impressive new models like the 2014 Cadillac CTS while still paying homage to their past with cars like the Camaro Z/28 and the Corvette Stingray. Now there's evidence that another storied GM nameplate might make a comeback: the Chevrolet Chevelle.
That's the question Trenton New Jersey's Sean Rich asked, as he set upon his 1973 Chevrolet Chevelle. He was already half-way there; the early '70s marked Detroit's most sinister-looking half-decade, with the Chevelle sharing its ominous styling with dead-mobster rides like the Lincoln Continental MkIV, Buick…
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.
Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Repo Man made the Chevy Malibu a cult favorite, so here's our second example in as many months.
You need nerves like bridge cables to play the muscle car auction game, as exemplified by the crazy ups and downs of the famous Truppi-King Chevelle SS 454 convertible.
Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Here's a very original, possibly even original-owner-driven Chevelle wagon.

Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. How about a Chevelle with the super-rare Roofer Option Package?
That's right, the fourth installment of The Fast And The Furious is to be called, merely, Fast And Furious, and here are the first pics. We wonder if calling it Fast and Furious means it isn't too fast, nor too furious, but just right. Among the cars featured you'll notice Vin Diesel's Chevelle SS, which we've seen…
This here is some leaked video from the set of the fourth installment of the rice-sploitation The Fast And The Furious movie franchise. Remember that famous scene at the end of the first film, where Vin Diesel's blown Dodge Charger pops a massive WheelStand (by the way, we never remember if it's two words or if the…
