Our buddy Zach Straits was busy snapping photos of cool vintage racers, Muscle Cars, and other classics at the 2017 Mecum Auto Auction in Kissimmee, Florida. He was kind enough to share the images with us, so we're passing them to you! Over 3000 cars went across the block!
On this episode of V8 Radio, Mike Clarke and Kevin Oeste chat about some of the recent events like PRI Show, the MCACN show, and also reflect on the recent Muscle Car Of The Week Top 10. Later, they cover some updates from the V8 Speed & Resto Shop. They reveal Bobby Unser's secrets to success in life, and then somehow end up on flying lessons, but you know how these things go. V8 Radio is the perfect garage companion when you are too busy concentrating on your project to have to pay attention to an important radio show!

This very nice 1968 Plymouth GTX arrived at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop in search of repairs to some leaky seam sealer areas, as well as some general maintenance. It is a 400 +6 car with an automatic, and it is wearing a beautiful Medium Turquoise Metallic paint scheme with original GTX stripes and wheels. You can follow along in the photo gallery as we perform the repairs on this stunning GTX.
We had the carb off the 302 for a rebuild, but we'll get it buttoned up, tuned, and ready for action.
Next, we've got black, but it's not a truck. This is a 1980 Dodge Mirada that came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for a complete restoration. It's not a car that you see in restoration shops often, but our customer bought this one brand new back in 1980 and has been driving it ever since. When he finally wore it out, he brought it to us to be brought back to better-than-new condition.
Our team tore it down, performed numerous sheet metal repairs, rebuilt the engine and suspension, and applied the slick black Axalta paint. It's going to be one of the nicest Miradas ever!
