Today, we're featuring Brad Durham and his '41 Chevy Rat Rod. Brad's built a huge following on his Instagram by sharing his love for hot rods and working on them as well as his love for family and friends. He picked up his '41 Chevy after it had sat for five years after the owner passed away from cancer.   He's subsequently worked towards finishing it up and at the time of writing consisted of the following: 350ci SBCCorvette heads 882 p/n studded with guide plates Turbo 350 transmission with a 2300 stall converterLunati Voodoo 00010 Cam ShaftLucky Seven 4...

As we all know, the fox body mustang is a staple of modern day muscle car culture.  They fill drag strips, car shows, street racing and nearly any other event you might attend that's performance and/or show related.   This being the case, you get used to seeing foxes that show their age and usage through the body and interior.  Today's feature car is NOT the case.   Brandon Hitchins spared no expense and left no bolt unturned on the car that has become affectionately known as "Sick_Fox". When I had the pleasure of shooting the "Sick_Fox", it was powered...

Check THIS thing out!  Today, we're talking about Chris Lee's '49 Ford that's powered by a 1JZ engine and Nissan 6spd transmission. Here's a little excerpt from our discussion with Chris about it: "The cab was purchased from a place in Minnesota and shipped.

The engine is a Toyota 1JZ connected with a Collins adapter to a Nissan 6 spd. The driveshaft is custom made to my spec at a local driveshaft shop. I...

We're always looking for killer projects and when we came across this car, we couldn't NOT feature it!   Today, we're looking at what I can only describe as a collection of the coolest fox body features packed into one car with a touch of modern convenience. This car has been dubbed the "Coupri" and for good reason!  It started its life out as a 1985 Mustang Coupe.  Over time, the owner Johnny, collected a Capri front clip and rear quarters, a t-top roof, a SN-95 interior and then built a nasty blown 4.6l based drivetrain for the car. Here's...

How do you save two vintage Mustangs at once?  This is a question answered by fabrication and Mustang enthusiast BJ Adams. This project started as two '67 Mustangs, one being a parts car coupe and the other a severely neglected fastback. The coupe in question: The first question that came to mind is "How bad was the fastback to justify cutting the roof off?".  In BJ's words, "Well, it was broken in half.." As illustrated in the picture below, the car had rusted to the point of falling in on itself.   All of the important structures had rusted through...
