This week, our buddy Brian Stupski of Problem Child Kustoms joins again as we discuss various topics growing out of the recent Detroit Autorama, ranging from thoughts on high-dollar cars, the role of technology as applied to custom car design and construction, and his involvement with the 1965 Dodge "Dart SL" built by Big Oak Garage which landed a spot in the Great 8. Oh yeah, and a little about wild kustoms of the past, a new take on the toilet seat car, and a comparison of 1969 Camaros to classic rock albums.

From the original Shelby Mustang GT350 to today's 1,000 horsepower GT500, Carroll Shelby, Shelby American, and the Ford Motor Company have defined high-performance with their Shelby Mustangs. Shelby built his Mustangs from 1965 until 1970, at a time when it seemed that the muscle car was a dying breed. Then an odd thing happened: people began to realize the classic nature of the car almost as soon as Shelby stopped building them. After a much-too-long hiatus, in 2006 Carroll Shelby was back with Ford and production of new Shelby Mustangs began for the first time in 36 years. Today, Shelby Mustangs of all eras remain at the top of almost every gearhead's list and with good reason-they are America's premier do-it-all pony car.
Shelby Mustang Fifty Years is a celebration of these magnificent machines and covers every iteration from the raw 1965 GT350s to today's Shelby 1000 monster and the men that made it all happen. Created in cooperation with the Carroll Hall Shelby Trust and officially licensed by Carroll Shelby Licensing, Inc., Shelby Mustang Fifty Years is lavishly illustrated with rare, historic photography and modern color images to chronicle the story of these amazing cars, from the initial collaboration with Ford to today's record-setting high-tech muscle cars.
The foreword and tribute to Carroll Shelby by the "Father of the Mustang" Lee Iacocca rounds out this love note to America's premier performance car. No Mustang fan will want to miss it.
Holley is proud to announce that they are the official drag racing sponsor for the first of what is sure to become an annual event in Bowling Green, Kentucky; The Danchuk Tri-Five Nationals. The Tri-Five Nationals will be held at the historic Beech Bend Raceway, August 14-15, 2015. It is shaping up to possibly be the largest event ever for ‘55,’56, & ‘57 Chevrolets. The 1955 Chevrolet is one of the most iconic and sought after collector cars of all time, and 2015 is its 60th anniversary. The crew at Woody’s Hot Rodz in Bright, Indiana decided this landmark was worth celebrating and have organized this must-see event. “These cars have always been our passion, and since our entire business is now focused on remanufacturing all new '55-'57 Chevys, the time seemed right for a national event focused on Tri-Five Chevys”, said Chris Sondles, owner of Woody’s Hot Rodz.
