Buick went against the traditional muscle car formula in the mid-1980s to create the muscle car that defined muscle cars for that era. Instead of the normal, big V8 in a mid-sized car, the 200-horsepower Grand National and later 276-horsepower GNX (Grand National Xperimental) made use of a turbocharged V6 with…
Benjamin is a paramedic from Omaha who, like most paramedics, has a bit of a wild side. He wants to get some kind of beat up, cheap, muscle car and turn it into an off-road battle machine. This is what Jalop dreams are made of. So what car should he buy?
Christopher has a 2011 Shelby Mustang that by some miracle has not been involved in any Cars and Coffee incidents. Now he has twins and car seats and Mustangs don’t mix well, so he needs something fast with four doors. What car should he buy?
I maintain the philosophy that any car is better when it’s made to go off-roading, whether that’s rallying or something more... extreme. This 4x4-converted 1972 Dodge Challenger for sale on Craigslist is definitely the latter, and it clearly validates my argument.
No one expects all-wheel drive to turn the Dodge Challenger into a WRX STI-slaying corner carver. No, the benefit is a little extra bite on slippery surfaces. I’m not convinced it’s superior to a set of snow tires, but it definitely hasn’t lost the personality that makes a Challenger so much fun.
Join an Aussie drifter named Alexi as he walks around the Mooneyes Street Car Nationals- a massive hot rod show that goes down in Tokyo every year. The parking lot is thick with muscle cars, but it gets a whole lot more interesting than that.
Driving season is warming across the United States, and that means autocross. Should you count yourself out of these parking lot activities if your car is soft, old, or American? Hell no.
I’ll be up front: Dodge finally put all-wheel drive in a Challenger, and it doesn’t get a V8 or a manual transmission. But even with a V6 and an automatic only, the Challenger GT sounds like it is ready to beat the crap out of snow-covered roads.
Muscle car sales are declining, and for the first time in two years, the Chevrolet Camaro has outsold the Ford Mustang. The primary reason for this apparent bowtie takeover is ridiculous discounts on leftover 2016 model year Camaros as the 2017s come out. Now is a great time to get a new Camaro and save some money in…
We know there’s only one reason to buy a Dodge Challenger Hellcat; the inexhaustible shit-talking rights that come with 707 horsepower. But now the cat’s been out of the bag for a while, and that jerk you were trying to one-up in the first place went and got a Hellcat of his own. This means war. You need 1,032…
I’m not over lifted muscle cars yet. Especially when they’re as badass as this diesel-powered ’73 Road Runner, and we get to watch them run from wasteland marauders!
It might look like any other IROC-Z, but it doesn’t drive like one.
If there was a way to turn a Dukes of Hazzard chase scene into a race, it would look a lot like this.
Muscle cars have plenty of ride height, beefy tires, and plenty of rear-drive power. Sounds like a perfect rallycross car to me.
Southern California finally got some rain this past weekend and while it limited the amount of time I was able to spend outside photographing cars, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with what I was able to get. It was one of those times when I really wish I had a good friend to hold an umbrella over me, or at…
This little mutt is an AMC Spirit AMX, a mini-musclecar from the late seventies with flares n’ white-lettered tires n’ a big ol’ hood decal - and a somewhat lamentable 130hp V8. Based on the Gremlin, it’s a sawed-off runt that few remember. Well you’d remember this one: it’s got a 96-inch wheelbase and a built 401ci…
How do you fix any problem with a car? The answer is typically just add more power. But sometimes adding more power can bite you in the ass. Here is the evidence.
Is that even a valid question when Classic Recreation’s ‘68 Villain costs $150,000 compared to the Ford Mustang GT’s starting price of $33,125? You tell me.
