Today is National Jelly Bean Day and there's not a better classic muscle car on the planet to help us celebrate than this 1970 Plymouth "Paint Chip" Barracuda.

Although the car wasn't real, Mopar enthuasiast Tim Wellborn set out on a mission to re-create it. Acco...

Now the big, brawny, luxurious all-American people mover gets an optional, no-extra-cost diesel engine that trades brute horsepower for fantastic fuel economy and doesn't give up any torque in the process. Our friends at Cadillac Society report that the Duramax...

Congratulations, Corvette. For the first quarter 2021, America's favorite sports car outsold every other new sports car available in the United States.

Top Mustangs - 2016 Shelby GT350

April 12th, 2021 Chris Phillip

With the launch of the 2015 Mustang chassis (engineering code S550), many enthusiasts considered what might be the Mustang brand’s halo vehicle. Previous model years saw the GT500 reach 662 hp with an all-aluminum 5.8L DOHC supercharged modular engine. However, the new S550 platform’s overall nose height and tightening emissions standards meant the 5.8L supercharged power plant would see its demis...

From 1983-1987, Choo Choo Customs, in cooperation with GM, built the final generation of the El Camino SS.

Chevrolet introduced the all-new C7 Corvette for the 2014 model year, which included the return of the Stingray name. After several generations of Corvettes aimed at Baby Boomers and their progeny, it was clear that the C7 Stingray was the first Corvette designed to inspire a new generation of fans. The influence of the C3 was still there, but the C7 Stingray had a bit of revolutionary. Like the T...
