Cadillac's new performance kings, the V-Series Blackwings, won't have any special badging to differentiate them from the baby Vs, like the CT4-V and the CT5-V. That news comes from GM Authority, who recently interviewed Cadillac's Blackwing Chief Engineer, Mirza Grebovic. "To us, V-Series is the top name here,” Grebovic said. “The Blackwing is a V-Series car. The Blackwing simply states that we ha...

Top Corvettes - 1993 40th Anniversary Corvette ZR1

March 10th, 2021 Chris Phillip

Model-year 1993 marked the 10th year of the C4 Corvette. Not only had it aged gracefully, but its 300-horsepower LT1 – 95 more than 1984’s L83 – also demonstrated the computer-controlled mojo that helped pull Chevrolet out of the Malaise Era. But the true enduring distinction for 1993 was the Corvette’s 40th anniversary. To celebrate, Chevrolet offered the Z25 40th Anniversary Package, a $1,455 op...

Top Mustangs - 1993 SVT Cobra R

March 8th, 2021 Chris Phillip

It was pretty clear that the Fox-era Mustangs were hugely successful, both in terms of sales and their image as a halo car for the Ford lineup. Even if a buyer drove off with an Escort, it was likely the Mustang GT 5.0 that lured him or her into the showroom. With a new-generation car waiting in the wings, Ford's new Special Vehicle Team (SVT) closed out the 1979-93 bodystyle with the ultimate ver...

Here in Florida at the RYNO Classifieds headquarters, spring is already upon us. But for some of you in North America, the dastardly winter cold seems to be going on and on. So we figured you could use a good laugh! Why do some folks get to come up with all the clever ideas, like in this case, washing a Hummer H2 in 40 below weather?

March 3rd, 2021 Chris Phillip

Entering the 1970s, manufacturers were churning out menacing machines in droves featuring high-performance engine, transmission, and rear end combinations. Based on the Mako Shark II concept car, the Chevrolet Corvette was completely redesigned for 1968. Displaying a long nose, high-arching fenders, and curvaceous profile, this generation (known as the C3) was produced through the 1982 model year....

The "Dolphin"-itive GMC Denali?

March 2nd, 2021 Chris Phillip

Some folks say the highest compliment you can pay a modified vehicle is that it looks like a SEMA show build. SEMA, the contraction for the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association, is a manufacturers' and builders' playground held every early November in Las Vegas, Nevada. (We're sure Las Vegas, New Mexico, has some mighty fine car shows, too, but that's another story!) So when we saw this 2...

In 1970, both the Mustang Mach I and the 428ci Super Cobra-Jet (SCJ) engine returned for their second year of production. When paired together, the result was a fire-breathing, sport roof-bodied Stang fit with a high-compression street brawler engine. The strength of the legendary Super Cobra Jet engine was found in its rotating assembly; crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, wrist pins, flywheel/...

February 25th, 2021 Chris Phillip

For those who have neither the checkbook nor the dare to drive around in a Dodge Hellcat and its 707hp and higher varieties, the SRT 392 engine packages on the Dodge Charger and Challenger have served up fantastic performance for many muscle-car enthusiasts without breaking the wallet. That same performance bang for the buck doesn't translate over to the 392 Rubicon Jeep, which just had its Launch...
