That super short wheelbase must make for an interesting time and for only $850 it seems like there is fun to be had, I’ll bet it spins em pretty good. Continue reading
These photos are from the first time I ran into this particular bi-winged serpent. The second time was at Barrett-Jackson, on the other side of town. It wasn’t being auctioned, it was just parked next to a bunch of other Vipers. I can’t really tell you the story on the Wright brothers wing setup, other than to say that I hope it’s functional. According to the driver, it is a 2001 model, which would put it at 450 hp and an easy low-12-second quarter mile, which is pretty respectable for a car that’s more than 10 years old. It would have no problem keeping up with the supercharged LSA V8 found under the hood of the Cadillac CTS-V, though it wouldn’t get nearly the same mileage. Continue reading
This is the “better parts of a lesser car” that America’s famous pony car was built off of. Well, not exactly this generation, but it was this model that spawned a crazed motoring youth. It forced General Motors (with some nudging from a close-minded, attention-seeking, young political activist) to abandon the Corvair, and to move the early BOP Y-bodies to a body-on-frame A-body platform. We’re talking about a car that kick-started the golden age of horsepower somehow by just taking grandma safely to her bingo games. The good ole harmless Ford Falcon. This particular Falcon is the last of it’s kind, and is the embodiment of everything it was meant to be.
Let me explain why: Continue reading
We’ve decided to overhaul the comments system here on the website. All of the old comments will be up soon. Enjoy the ease of being able to comment via your regular social networking account.
It basically goes something like this. I was born in the mid 1980’s. My family hauled my brother and I around in the back seat of a 1979 Ford Thunderbird until the mid to late 1990’s. Continue reading
If you weren’t aware, our one year anniversary of Generation: High Output is tomorrow. We’d like to celebrate it with all of you, so please stop by tomorrow to see what we have planned!
I don’t really care for convertibles. Soft-top, hard-top or anything in between. I guess my one exception might be the 1995 Mustang Hardtop, but that’s still not very practical. After riding in one all day, it feels like a day spent at Lake Pleasant in a boat. I guess Phoenix just wasn’t designed for convertibles. All that aside, I love every single third generation Camaro, and with the exception of the “notchback” and the swoopy, 91-92 body treatment, I love every third generation Firebird as well.

Let’s take a look at the week gone by:
- Trevor shows us a yellow Lexus LFA that we could only dream of going all Kyle Busch in.
- He also shares a chopped, custom, tri-power Buick Caballero that makes your “average” Nomad look like a joke.
- Mike drops an A-bomb with his beautiful find of a post-1972 A-body that’s nothing less than gorgeous.
- I explain my absence and talk of future things to come. Don’t get too excited, it’s just another Vortec 350.
- Trevor comes back swinging later in the week, first with the world’s fastest car.
- And then with something that is somehow more eye-popping than a 1000hp hypercar: An LS9-powered split window.
