Vintage Air always takes extra steps to make sure their air conditioning systems have the "tools they need" to work at their best.   For example, when they determined that the accessory bracket systems were not up to par, they developed the FrontRunner drive system to give the compressor the best mount possible.    The side benefit was better performance from all the belt-driven accessories.   Today, they've added an exclusive alternator design to that system to make sure the entire car has enough juice to cruise in comfort.   Vintage Air also showed us some new style on under dash A/C units that add a whole new "cool factor" to your car's cabin coolers.      Shot at the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

The task of covering a quarter-mile drag strip in 6 seconds is one that very few full-race cars can manage, but our friends at Gear Vendors help a new breed of STREET LEGAL cars make it happen, and then drive hundreds of miles on public highways!    It's all about Hot Rod's Drag Week, and Rick Johnson brings us up to speed on Bryant Goldstone's 1973 Javelin and how it all goes down.  From SEMA 2015.   Coverage presented by ARP.   http://www.arp-bolts.com

1970 Charger Tantrum

Stock 1970 Dodge Chargers are bad to the bone, especially when equipped with the 425 HP 426 Hemi V8.   But a custom 1600+ HP 9 liter twin-turbo version sporting custom Carbon Fiber pieces and trick suspension is a whole different ball game!    The crew at SpeedKore brought TANTRUM to life, and we were afforded the opportunity to chat with designer Sean Smith about this amazing modernized Muscle Car at the 2015 SEMA show in the JET Performance display.

1967 Pontiac Acadian

The crew at JF Kustoms took a very cool approach when building their Canadian-born 1967 Pontiac Acadian unveiled in the BASF display at the 2015 SEMA show.    Using design elements from Brian Stupski at Problem Child Kustoms, the talented JF crew gently refined the original trim and made some new pieces that still reflect the original without losing the "DNA" of the car.    They also built-in a hint of retro Street Machine with the graphics and by keeping the chrome bumpers and polished trim, but updated it with modern driveline, wheels, stance, and interior.     It's wearing RM Onyx HD paint with tremendous depth and gloss, and the pearl really makes the color stand out.
