Give Me a G. Give Me a T. Give Me an X.

Give Me a G. Give Me a T. Give Me an X.

July 7th, 2020 Chris Phillip

Turbojet. Super Cobra Jet. Super Commando. Those were the glory days when Chevy, Ford and Dodge/Plymouth engines had names that inspired potential buyers. That's why this Super Commando 440 engine, an original issue to this '68 Plymouth GTX, makes this classic carriage quite the standout. Build way back in March 1968, this gear-slapping Forest Green muscle machine is documented with its original b...

Wham, Bam, Thank you, Trans Am

Wham, Bam, Thank you, Trans Am

July 1st, 2020 Chris Phillip

The Smokey and the Bandit years may make the 1977-1979 Trans Ams the most famous of the feathered lot, but several years earlier, Pontiac refused to admit that the muscle-car era had ended with a special-order-only Trans Am that recalled the power and the glory of the 1960s. It was called the Super Duty 455, or SD-455, for short, and it gave the Trans Am the performance its name deserved. Each SD-...

30 Minutes or Less

30 Minutes or Less

June 17th, 2020 Chris Phillip

In the not-so-prehistoric past, Chevrolet produced a no-frills sedan delivery vehicle to get durable goods from seller to buyer. In the Tri-5 trifecta ('55 to '57), 10,639 of these 2-door sedan delivery Chevys rolled off of the factory line to answer the needs of America's businesses. This extroverted example, listed by Ryno Classifieds seller Alf Peterson, is not for the quiet or shy types. Featu...

Seeing Red

June 10th, 2020 Chris Phillip

If you're not the venerable type able to recall the hey-day of the original muscle-car era, the Dodge Charger is the sporty four-door performer in the brand's modern-day line-up with multiple engine choices up to a 707hp Hellcat engine. But back in the day, starting in '66 and revamped in '70, the Charger was a two-door powerhouse of a pavement pounder, which gave other street machines a run for t...

Rock Star Stock Car Looking for a New Driver!

Rock Star Stock Car Looking for a New Driver!

May 12th, 2020 Chris Phillip

In the distant past, owning a NASCAR-spec stock car was as simple as going to your local dealer and checking off the right boxes for a new-car special order. Whether you then went racing for the checkered flag or just the next stoplight was all up to you. That’s what makes this ’63 Ford 300 R-code so special. Built on Ford’s full-size fleet-car model (a stripped-down Galaxie), the 427ci, dual Holl...

Go ahead and stop us if you’ve heard this before. You bought a high-performance ride back in the ’80s or ’90s and now it seems Priuses have more credentials at the stoplight. Times sure do change.

That brings us to the Ryno Classifieds pick of the week — this LQ9 364CI 525HP Complete Crate Engine from seller Best...

Featuring a 427ci/675hp LS engine, A/C and heater delete, a 60-degree high-s...

Bird, Bird, Bird. Bird is the Word.

Bird, Bird, Bird. Bird is the Word.

April 21st, 2020 Chris Phillip

In retrospect, we should all be thankful Plymouth had a promotional partnership with Warner Bros. Cartoons and not the Children's Television Workshop. Why? Can you imagine if the iconic 1970 Plymouth Superbird had Big Bird on its mile-high rear spoiler instead of Wile E. Coyote's arch nemesis, the Road Runner? That brings us to the super retro cool and over-the-top style of this Big Bird-colored 1...

Before Lil' Red Corvette There Was Lil' Red GTO

April 15th, 2020 Chris Phillip

What's not to love about a classic first-generation Pontiac GTO loaded from the factory with all the right stuff. This tasty example, featured on Ryno Classifieds, from long-time seller Sterling Motors, pushes all the right buttons with the Ryno editorial team. Of course, 1966 is the third year of the GTO and the best selling year of the GTO ever. You see, momentum for the GTO really built up fast...
