A Classic Shelby GT500 catches fire and burns to the ground and you won’t believe how much this thing was worth.
Many car enthusiasts cringe at the sight of a classic vehicle meeting its demise and there’s few cars you’d be more horrified to see get torched than a vintage Shelby GT500. Sadly, that’s exactly what happened to German TV star Mark Keller’s 1967-1968 GT500 on his way to breakfast. The TV star is known for his lead role on the German television series “Alarm für Cobra 11″ (translates to “”The Motorway Police”) and when approached by local law enforcement as to why he was burning a Mustang in the middle of the street for TV, Mark adamantly informed them this was no stunt and his personal GT500 was indeed melting before their eyes. Even those passing by were sure it was another stunt for the show:
“Some passers-by thought we turn a new episode of ‘Alarm für Cobra 11” – Mark Keller via a poor English to German…Continue
If you are on the prowl for the baddest ZL1 in the country – look no further. Here’s the run down on the vehicle. Or just head over to eBay and check it out.
Pfadt Racing is internationally known for taking sports cars and maximizing their power and handling capabilities. This is our personal Development vehicle. There are parts on this car that haven’t even made it to market yet. One of those items is our Pfadt ZL1 Mag Ride Coilover shocks. These coilovers combined with the ZL spec Pfadt sway bars will give you better handling than any other ZL1 on the road. We also designed custom pulleys for the crank and blower that are just part of the power package which includes a camshaft that gives this beast 825 crank horsepower…Continue
After years of racing and winning championships with his 1970 Duster in the West Texas True Ten Five class, Midland, Texas resident Marty Pearcy decided it was time to step up to something new. What that something new became was a rarity in the small tire drag racing: a a new-age Dodge Challenger packing Chrysler for power.
“When these cars first came out, we bought one for my wife, and I thought ‘What a great car to make into a race car’, so that’s what we did. I bought a Challenger R/T roller that had been stolen, stripped, and recovered, then shipped it off to Darren and Anne Breaud at B&B Race Cars in Tennessee. We used to run out here in Midland with my Duster, but I sold that car to buy and build the Challenger,” he explains. “I didn’t…Continue

Let’s face facts here; most of us will (hopefully) never need an armored vehicle to guarantee our safety. But there is a select group of people in the world, comprising mostly of drug dealers, arms smugglers, and highly-paid CEO types who find that it is better to be safe than sorry when it comes to selecting the safest mode of transportation. That is why there are companies like Texas Armoring, which offer a variety of armor-plated SUVs and trucks.
And then there is this armor-plated Chevy Camaro SS, which Fox News recently took a look at. Thanks to some breakthroughs in armored window technology, Texas Armoring can now offer the highest level of protection to muscle car enthusiasts with a tendency to…Continue
Most enthusiasts have seen the 2015 Mustang spy shots and artistic renderings that have floated around the Internet (and even within our blog pages) and, to be quite honest, they haven’t really given us an idea what the new Mustang will look like (although speculative opinions and “my brand is better than your brand” fighting continue). But as we get closer to the date of the Mustang’s debut, it’s all gonna jell, one step at a time.
And the next step is here. While the latest spy photos still don’t help complete the next-gen Mustang’s styling in our minds, these photos are significant because the cammo’d…Continue

Seriously, look at the size of those heads! Are you kidding me?! This Holden HSV has a 727 cubic inch motor under the hood and while it’s not an LSX motor, it’s still beyond impressive. The massive mill is said to make 1200 HP in NA form and we can’t help but wonder if they’ll spray it at some point. We wish the car wasn’t detuned in the video, but apparently it was on the “break-in tune.” We can only hope to see it in action once the motor is worn in.
Seriously, can you imagine a 727 under the hood?
727 cubic inches of fury barely fits in the bay of this Holden…Continue
