http://www.v8tvshow.com - NASCAR racing was insanely popular in 1969 and the cars were getting faster and faster. Dodge had an ace in the hole with the 426 Hemi V-8 and all the power they made. However, Dodge engineers were learning about the benefits of aerodynamics and how you could go faster with less power if your car knew how to cooperate with the wind. This 440 car is a great example of ...

Yenko Camaros are special cars indeed. This week, we're featuring a beautifully restored 1969 Yenko Camaro, complete with the correct 450 horsepower 427, 4-speed Muncie transmission, and all the other elements that make a Yenko a Yenko. This car is also one of only 10 Yenko Camaros painted in Olympic Gold, and one of only 2 with white stripes. Camaros might be common, but not this one!
On this episode, we're spending a few minutes with a very cool and unusual 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T. If the bright red color and 426 Hemi V8 weren't enough to make it stand out, the special fiberglass N94 hood should make Muscle Car fans take notice. Supposedly there were only 4 R/T cars built with the TA style hood, and this is the only known Hemi powered version left. From The Brothers Col...

I thought it would look a lot cleaner if they weren't there, maybe in the end it won't be worth the effort but won't know until you try, right? I just cut 3" or 4" at a time, there are 3 layers of metal coming together at the same point and I wanted[…]Read more...

The Rev’n Rods & Heartland Music Tour presented by Chevrolet Performance is a great cruising event with the added bonus of a country music concert at each stop. We joined the event for several of the stops and found tons of great cars, lots of cool people, and a great overall feeling of hot rodding camaraderie.
The event, a thrilling combination of car shows, a driving tour and nightly concerts, kicked off in Nashville, Tennessee on Sunday, July 17. The Rev’n Rods & Heartland Music Tour will have additional daily stops in Southaven, Mississippi; Cape Girardeau, Missouri; Bowling Green, Kentucky; and Bean Blossom, Indiana before the final stop in Indianapolis on July 22, 2016.
Each day’s event features a car show complete with vendors, exhibits, food and beverages with admittance free to the general public. Every night ends with a ticketed concert featuring the legends of country music. Owners of hot rods, street rods, motorcycles and classic automobiles are encouraged to go on tour with Rev’n and Heartland for one stop or even the whole trip. Each registration includes two free nightly concert tickets per vehicle. The details for each location are listed below. Visit www.revntour.com for tickets and more information.
