Damn… a real deal 1969 ½ A12 Dodge Super Bee 440 Six-Pack that ran into a pole right at the tail end of break in miles… sold for 25k on ebay.

lead foot stupidity. Bought a real numbers matching A12 Bee, and smashed it as soon as he could.

The motor has been beefed up, and given a nice set of headers. NOS has been added, a top of the line NOS Fogger System which is mated to the original 6-Pack. AC, MSD, Bear disc brakes on all 4 tires, and an Optima battery.

This would have been an incredible car. Air Ride Technologies, 4 link added to the rear, mini tubs too

Illegal ‘recapped’ tires cause I-95 crash, and closes north lanes for 3 hours

June 23rd, 2017 by admin

an illegal recapped front tire on an Allied Movers went flat causing the large truck to hit the interstate guardrail and overturn, blocking all three lanes of northbound traffic.

Florida Highway Patrol said the driver and passenger of the moving truck were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Troopers said 35 gallons of diesel fuel and the victims’ possessions that were being moved spilled onto the interstate.

Taylor explained that tread being re-added to tires is an illegal practice usually done on commercial vehicles like the large moving truck, because recapped tires are less than 1/2 the cost of new tires.

FHP is investigating whether the South Florida driver and the passenger who rented the truck or the truck company itself will be liable for the crash.

Jeff Westphal won pole position at this year’s Nürburgring 24 Hours, he’s the 1st American in the race’s 45-year history to win pole position and he did it in a car dreampt up by an American, with an American-owned team.

June 22nd, 2017 by admin

Westphal raced the No. 704 Traum Motorsport SCG 003C at this year’s Nürburgring 24 Hours. The SCG 003 is American racing enthusiast Jim Glickenhaus’ idea of the perfect track and street car, and the SCG 003C is its racing-only version.

This year was the SCG 003C’s third attempt at the Nürburgring 24 Hours, and while they didn’t finish, they certainly proved that an outsider to the European racing scene can break in and be the fastest.

The team quickly learned that there’s nowhere they could test that could come close to simulating laps on the Nürburgring with the same mix of harsh bumps, hills, fast sweepers and tight corners. Replicating the ‘Ring’s over 8-minute laps anywhere else was impossible.

So, the team had to spend a lot of time testing and racing at the Nürburgring, Westphal estimates that he got around 450 laps at the ‘ring before this year’s 24-hour race, participating in about five races there a year with between six to eight hours of seat time in each race.

Skip the first 11 minutes of sitting in the pits. And for Pete’s sake, millions of dollars of race car, and this shit video is the best they could do? What is that, a crappy old cell phone, Why they hell couldn’t they buy a Go Pro?

cutaway Corvette, and it’s a 1953. Newly crafted over the past 2 years it will be on display at the annual Bloomington Gold event until this Saturday June 24th at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Mackay and his crew built the cutaway car on the earliest Corvette chassis known, #003. The chassis was discovered in the mid-1970s when Phil Havens found it under the body of a 1955 Corvette he was restoring.

The #003 car was used for durability testing, including a punishing 5,000-mile test over Belgium Blocks. Chevrolet Engineering Department Work Order, #19013-27, issued on Aug. 20, 1953, instructed that the frame be changed. So it survived.

Sam Folz, president of the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS), identified the chassis as 003 and confirmed it as the oldest Corvette chassis known to exist.

For the ’53 cutaway, Mackay used the body of a 1954 Corvette parts car. He summed up the work that came next: “It took a tremendous amount of designing, researching, documenting, hunting, measuring, cutting, bending, splicing, and engineering.”

Mackay left the windshield and grille intact, and then he made “floating” elements: the left-side headlight, taillight, fender emblem, body side molding, horn, armrest, and ashtray. “It looks really cool displayed at dusk, with one headlight and taillight floating in air,” he said.

It was at Amelia Island Concours earlier this year, but I never heard anything about it

A couple of years ago, he found an L88 1969 Corvette at a machine shop and did something similar
