Plymouth realized in the early 30s that people wanted a full sized, full featured car. In 1934, they produced this car, the PFXX model which indicated that it was a Special Six version. It incorporated several new advances in design along with classic early 30s styling. Those advances plus a nicely refreshed interior makes this a wonderful car from this era to drive around and enjoy. Check it out. The overall shape of the car is familiar 1930s, but the details set this car apart from the crowd. At the front of the piano hinged hood is a sailing ship hood ornament that appears for the first time. That was made possible when the radiator cap was moved to the underside of the hood. The chrome on this car is all newer and shines brightly with a tall grill of vertical bars with a winged Plymouth badge in the center. It is flanked by big chrome headlights and dual air horns on each side with a simple shiny bumper underlining it. The body of the car is Black, and received a midlife repaint, which means back in the 60s sometime, and while it is showing its age a bit, can be thought of as having a period correct patina to it. A red pinstripe runs down the length of the car which compliments the maroon wire wheels, and of course separate fenders and running boards are a 1930s required feature. Open the door and you will find a wonderfully refreshed interior that makes cruising in this car comfortable and enjoyable. The door panels echo the shape of the Plymouth wings on the grill in a lighter fabric center and darker maroon vinyl surround with the window frames trimmed out in wood. The seats are absolutely gorgeous, comfortably upholstered in button tufted maroon vinyl both front and rear. A big three spoke steering wheel sits in front of one of the advances made in this car with the gauges moved from the center of the dash to directly in front of the driver for the first time. And that gauge cluster is a work of art with its series of ovals starting with the overall cluster and working inward ultimately delineating the individual gauges. The passenger gets an oval glovebox with a beautiful sailing ship icon in the center and the shifter for the manual transmission rises from the floor in the center. Open the hood and you will find that wonderfully stock and very likely original, numbers matching, Special Six . It is a flat head engine, so is a very simple design, but has signs of good regular maintenance with new plug wires, fuel lines and coolant hoses as well as a new muffler in the exhaust. Also, this engine incorporates a full pressured and filtered oil system and rubber Floating Power motor mounts, as well as developing about 10% more horsepower than its 1933 predecessor. That power flows back through a 3-speed manual transmission to a solid rear axle on leaf springs. The front suspension was somewhat ground breaking for 1934 in that it incorporated an independent suspension with unequal length A-arms and coil springs. The other feature incorporated for the first time was hydraulic brakes both front and rear. 7.00 X 17 tires are mounted on the maroon wire wheels in classic 1930s style. A full sized, full featured, advanced design Plymouth from 1934 with a comfortably refreshed interior. Come on down and check it out.

Leading the way is that vertical chrome grill spreading out from the center underlined by a simple chrome bumper. A tall flat hood tapers back and outward from the nose with headlights perched way out on the fenders. Those separate fenders are hunkered down over beautiful chrome wheels and a chrome highlight starts at the front running along the top of the doors turning down to follow the trunk line at the rear. Open the door and you will find an interior trimmed in Black with all the comforts and conveniences of a modern car. The door panel itself is vertically pleated with a smooth top. Power window switches are at your fingertips and a speaker is mounted in the lower corner. A comfortable split bench seat gets the same pleated treatment with smooth leading and top edges. A leather wrapped steering wheel has a 3-spoke wire hub and is mounted on a tilt column along with a mini tach and a shifter for the automatic transmission. Behind it is a Red dash with a chrome insert containing VDO gauges with the Speedometer in the center flanked by engine gauges on each side. A Pioneer head unit is mounted in the center with a Kenwood XM radio below the glove box for your listening pleasure and there is air conditioning to keep you cool when the sun gets too hot and the top goes up. Open the hood and you are in for a pleasant surprise. There you will find a very chromed out, and very stroked out, 383 cubic inch LT1 motor nestled down in a very polished up and detailed out engine bay.

There is a free flow air filter feeding the engine and shorty headers getting the spent gasses out and back to dual mufflers. Power flows back through a 4-speed automatic transmission to a Ford 9 rear end with 3.00 gears located by trailing arms with adjustable coil over shocks. Tubular control arms and coil springs keep the front end under control with the help of a sway bar to keep it cornering flat. Power 4-wheel disc brakes can haul this car back down from speed in a hurry and the rubber meets the road through 235/60/R16s in the back and 205/65/R15s in the front mounted on those chrome Scripts rims. Beautiful 40 Ford styling, drop top fun in the sun, and a very tricked out LT1 under the hood. It doesnt get much better than this. Unless maybe it was sitting in your driveway.

As soon as you lay eyes on this car you can tell that it is a serious street weapon. It is loud and its proud from its exposed big-block engine in the front to its barely street legal racing slicks in the back. However, most of time the fun of a car a car like this is just knowing what its capable of as you enjoy cruise nights and club gatherings. Big engines in lightweight cars with big tires have always been the recipe for success in a street rod. For any given engine, the less weight it has to accelerate the faster is goes. So, removing unnecessary items like the fenders and the hood help tremendously and, it is the very thing that defines the street rod look. Additional weight savings were realized on this car through the use of a Gibbon Fiberglass Reproductions body which was then coated in a not so subtle shade of Purple. A tall grill of vertical bars leads the way with large chrome trimmed headlights on either side of it. The look is kept clean with the removal of door handles and the upright 5-Window cab has a significant forward tilt to it due to the serious chassis rake of the car. Chrome Smoothie wheels mount those very wide back tires and side pipes just add to the awesome look. For all the evidence of hard-core speed on the outside, when you open the door on this car you will find a nicely appointed and comfortable custom faux leather interior. The door panel is trimmed out in a Light Gray diamond pleated pattern with a Dark Gray bottom with a pull at the top. That pattern is echoed on the bench seat with the light gray pleated seating surfaces and dark gray accents. The deep dish three-spoke chrome steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column with a cowl mounted tach directly in front of the driver and a B&M shifter for the automatic transmission rising out of the floor. The dash is panel is body colored in purple with a cast aluminum Champion gauge bezel loaded with Stewart Warner gauges for the speedometer, water, oil, voltage and fuel. Overhead is a Pioneer stereo that is AM/FM/CD and iPod compatible for your listening pleasure. A full black headliner and carpeting ties the look of the interior together nicely. That big block motor perched out front for all the world to see is a very healthy Oldsmobile 455. Feeding air to all those cubic inches is a ribbed cast aluminum filter assembly. A Holley 4-barrel carb handles the fuel mixing duties and a cast aluminum intake manifold gets it to G cylinder heads which are capped by Oldsmobile aluminum valve covers. Headers get the spent gasses out to those awesome side pipes that sound oh so sweet. Power flows back through a TH400 transmission to a Ford 9 rear end with 3.00 gears. It puts the power on ground effectively through those 315/60R15 tires via a 4-link rear suspension and coil over shocks. Up front, tubular control arms and coil overs work with rack and pinion steering to provide good handling while disc brakes insure that you can haul this rod back down from speed when you decide to let the horses run. Big power, big thunder, big tires, big fun. Come on down and check out this great looking street rod.
Street rods are so much fun. You get to pick a car that is the right size and the style you like, then build it with modern running gear so you have the air conditioning and stereo you like with the handling and reliability of a modern car. If a 1940 Ford is just your style, then check this one out. You dont need to build it. Just come on down and drive it home. 1940 Fords are popular vehicles to street rod for many reasons. For one, their sweeping curves and separate fenders look great when they are dropped down close to the ground, coated in shiny Red paint so the lights dance across them as it drives down the street, and set on a sweet set of shiny chrome wheels. Speaking of chrome, its hard to beat the look from the front of the car with the bold band of it running down the center of the hood with a V8 badge right where it joins the stylized grill of vertical bars. It is underlined by a simple chrome bumper and the teardrop headlights perched way out on the front fenders are trimmed in it too. Viewed from the side, a strip of chrome runs end to end, flowing with the curve of the hood up front and turning down to follow the smooth line of the trunk at the rear. Open the door and you will find a great looking custom interior. The door panel sets the theme in two-tone Gray and curved panels that play off the curves of the body. The two-tone seats are super comfortable with a fold down armrest and a silhouette of the car is embroidered into the headrest. A leather wrapped four-spoke Lacarra steering wheel with a polished center sits on a billet, tilting steering column and a Lokar shifter topped with an 8-ball rises from the floor in the center. More polished billet surrounds the Classic Instruments white faced gauges with the speedo and tach directly in front of the driver and engine gauges are off to the right along with some control knobs. Hidden in the glove box is a Sony head unit that is FM/CD/XM and MP3 compatible for your listening pleasure as well as controls for the air conditioning system and a trunk release. Pop the hood and you will find a 350-cubic inch crate motor nestled down in a neat and clean engine bay. A ribbed black air topper sits on a 4-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold. Ribbed black valve covers look good with a Chevy bowtie embossed on them. A Mallory distributor works with MSD ignition parts to get good reliable spark to the cylinders and the exhaust flows out through dual cherry bomb mufflers that give the car a nice healthy sound. Power flows back through a 700R4 4 speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels mounted on multi-leaf springs. Up front control arms and coil springs work together with power rack and pinion steering and a beefy sway bar to give this car great handling while front disc brakes assure good stopping power. The rubber meets the road through 225/70R15s in the back and 195/60R15s in the front all mounted on those great looking American Racing alloys.

Celebrating its 90th birthday, this car is ready to go out and have a good time! It just needs adriver. Might that be you? Its a Sport Cabriolet so its ready to put some wind in your hair and a smile on your face as you head out on the town in 1928 high style. Check it out. This car is one of the first projects to come out of GMs Art and Color studio. They had just created the LeSalle and incorporated some of the lessons learned there into the AB. The hood was longer and straighter than the 27 model, and it had a lower profile. This one is a beautiful two-tone with the body dressed up in Red with Black fenders and trim complimenting it nicely. The Cabriolet was actually introduced mid-year, and the folding roof was one of the things that put Chevy back ahead of Ford in sales compared to the Model A for 28. Yes, they were serious rivals even back then. The difference in appearance is largely in the front with a narrower grill and a different treatment to the front bumper with black and silver presenting a nice look. The black molding running down the side of the car also helps the car look sportier and those Red disc wheels look like they came off of a Bonneville speed record car. Open the door and you will find a nicely restored interior that was considered well appointed for its time, which happens to be the same year that bread sliced and wrapped by machine first became available. The door panels are simple squares of black with a window crank and door handle, although the brass screws attaching it are a nice touch. A nice bench provides a comfortable and roomy perch in the tall and spacious cab. A wooden steering wheel is mounted on a 4-spoke hub with a lever to adjust the engine timing for starting or power in the center, and the shifter for the manual transmission rises tall from the floor. The dash is red with a black oval panel in the center that contains the control lever for the lights, a unique barrel type speedometer, and two sweep gauges for voltage and oil pressure. There is a ventilating windshield that you can tilt open if you wish, or you could put the convertible top down for some open-air motoring. That streamlined hood is piano hinged, so go ahead, open both sides for a good look. There you will find a 171 cubic inch, 4-cylinder engine which, true to the great tradition of constant improvements in search of more horsepower, the factory installed aluminum pistons in to bump the compression up, larger valves for better flow and a revised carburetor to produce 35 horsepower at 2200 rpm. The ignition system has new plugs and wires, the fuel lines are new, and a 6-volt electrical system is kept charged up with an original style generator. That big upright radiator keeps everything running cool while power flows back through a 3-speed manual transmission to a solid rear axle on leaf springs. The front end is a drop axle on leaf springs and 4-wheel brakes were a welcome advance incorporated into this car. The tires are 4.50 x 4.75-21s on those beautiful red dish wheels with black hubs. Top up or top down, this car will put a smile on your face, as well as on the faces of those who see you driving down the road. Come on down and check it out.
Chevrolet celebrates 100 years of building pickup trucks as former chief engineer who helped Chevy trucks reaching this popularity celebrates turning 101.
Standing up tall and stripped down low with big punch in the front and a pickup bed in the back. Street rods are so much fun because they are all so unique. This one is a fresh build with an awesome Hemi power plant on display up front for all the world to see. Out back, its doubtful that you will throw firewood in that bed, but it might come in handy for coolers and chairs or maybe even a few trophies. This is a new build with only 400 miles on it since completed. The Copper Metallic paint is near flawless with only the faintest marks in the clear coat from wiping it down. Without fenders or a hood, the tall upright cab is accentuated even more than usual. There is an aggressive rake to the chassis that reinforces the serious intentions of the Hemi engine, and that stance gives the cab a slight forward tilt that looks awesome. A Magnaflow muffler parallels the rake and underlines the cab but can be bypassed for the open header sound in case you want to announce your arrival on the scene a bit ahead of time. The view from directly in front of this truck is sweet with a narrow grill, flanked by big round headlights. Above it is the rectangular windshield capturing the small back window within its frame with chrome wipers and mirrors extending from the top edges of the cab. Open the door and you will find a study in simplicity and minimalism. The beige door panel has a simple pattern embossed in the top and mirrored on the bottom. The two-tone bench seat cant get any more stripped down with the cab acting as the seat back, but the back is nicely trimmed out in beige vinyl and carries the look through to the headliner. The dashboard is a work of art and may contradict the minimalist description a bit. It has a body color top edge with a beautiful dark burled wood panel that holds chrome trimmed Stewart Warner gauges and billet control knobs. An Autometer tach is suspended from the ceiling and a T-handle shifter for the automatic transmission is mounted on the floor. A beefy Grant GT wheel feels good in your hands and the strength of the 4-spoke design may come in handy as you hang onto it when you cut that engine loose. That engine is quite a sight to see, and quite a formidable powerhouse. It is 392 cubic inches of awesome topped by dual Holley 4-barrel carbs that feed the beast. Chromed Chrysler Firepower valve covers seem to cover about the whole engine and those equal length headers can be run through the mufflers to please your neighbors, or electrically uncorked for a trip down the boulevard or down the strip. All that power is sent back through a 3-speed, 727 Torqueflite transmission to the Ford 9 rear end held in place by a four-link suspension and adjustable coil over shocks. Up front, adjustable coil overs working through control arms provide great drivability, and they are equipped with disc brakes too so that you can be sure to get this Rod hauled back down from speed quickly when you decide to let it run. The rubber meets the road through 21560R15 tires in the rear mounted on 5-spoke alloys, and 165/80R15 tires in the front mounted on 10 spoke, wagon wheel style alloys. This car is full of more beautiful details than can be mentioned here. And besides, pictures dont do the gorgeous paint justice. Come on down and check this trick 29 pickup out up close and personal for yourself.

Add in some current tech for performance, dress it up for the show, and you have a car you can join your friends with on cruise nights and collect a few trophies for the display case along the way. This 36 cuts a classic line from tall chrome grill perched on the front of a narrow, piano hinged hood to the gentle curve of the trunk as it flows gently down toward the ground. A Chevrolet badge graces the center of that grill and on top is a hood ornament that leads the way as you fly down the road. Individual headlights are perched on either side of the hood just over the separate fenders, which are another charming feature of 1930s styling. The tall cab of the car cuts a smooth line up and over the roof and then down over the trunk which provides lots of interior and luggage space. Torch Red paint catches the light reflecting it back nicely along all those curves and also highlights the chrome of the door handles, headlights and grill nicely. A wide black running board connects the front and rear fenders and custom taillights keep the look clean. Open the door and you will find a Tan and Red interior that compliments the vintage looks of the outside with stunning custom touches and modern conveniences on the inside. The billet steering wheel is almost certain to grab your attention first. It is quite a work of art and sure to start some conversations at the shows.

The Z28 Camaro motor set down in this engine bay is dressed for the show with chrome valve covers, air topper, and accessories like the brake master cylinder and booster, alternator and A/C compressor that shine bright and reflect off the polished paint of the firewall and underside of the hood. It all looks awesome! The chromed shorty headers have some wonderful color to them that comes from pumping out some horsepower and the exhaust has a nice rumbling sound to it. An aluminum radiator with an electric fan keeps the temps under control and the power flows back through a 4-speed automatic trans to the back wheels mounted on leaf springs. Power rack and pinion steering makes this car handle well and power front disc brakes provide great stopping ability. The rubber meets the road through 205/70R15 tires mounted on chrome 5-spoke alloy wheels. Vintage good looks. Modern tech for comfort and performance and lots of chrome dressing up the engine! Come on down and check out this sweet ride out.
Automobiles designed in the 1930s are pretty unique and easily identifiable. They became more aerodynamic and streamlined than their predecessors and were celebrating advances in technology along the way. The style is often referred to a streamlined modern . These days, Street Rods fast forward through 80 years of additional technological advances and apply those to the beautiful look of those early cars. Like this beautiful 36 5-Window coupe. Check it out. Letting those looks speak for themselves, the body of this car has been left completely stock. However, there was considerable care taken to insure that all the panels were properly aligned and the surfaces meticulously prepared before it was coated in that classic Red paint. The look is kept clean and understated with even the tall vertical grill, which is frequently dressed in chrome, kept body color. That allows the rest of the chrome to shine that much brighter, like the bold line of it running up the center of that grill, under the flying hood ornament, then trailing back along the top of the hood. Headlights are proudly perched between the hood and the gently curved front fenders. The roof line flows up, over, and down over the passenger compartment, then smoothly over the trunk. Simple chrome bumpers dress out the front and the rear and running boards are a 30s classic feature. Open the door and you will find a wonderful Tan interior that is a mix of classic look and modern tech. The door panels are simple but elegant with vertical pleats running from top to bottom. Bucket seats are a modern addition, but are stitched, old world style, in pleated leather with smooth side bolsters. The woodgrain steering wheel is absolutely gorgeous with a billet hub and bowtie center button mounted on a tilt column along with a billet shifter. Dolphin gauges keep track of speed on the right and engine functions on the left with a separate, auxiliary tach mounted just to the left of the column. A custom, leather wrapped center console holds power window switches as well as a Kenwood AM/FM/CD player with speakers mounted behind the seats for your listening pleasure. The huge trunk in this car is as nicely trimmed out as the interior, so go ahead, load up with luggage or lawn chairs and coolers and head out for adventure. Open that piano hinged hood, and you will find a nicely dressed out 383 cubic inch motor nestled down in a spotless engine bay. The firewall is polished up so it reflects the light shining off all the chrome on the engine. It starts with the Edelbrock air filter assembly that feeds the Edelbrock carburetor and Offenhauser intake. It is joined by chrome valve covers with Chevrolet in script pressed into them, as well as a chrome alternator and master cylinder cover. The air conditioner is polished up nicely too and there is an Accel HEI ignition system sending spark to the plugs through red wires. Spent gasses head out through shorty headers and cherry bomb style mufflers and give this car a nice rumbling sound. A solid axle on leaf springs gets the power to the rear wheels while the front end has rack and pinion steering and front disc brakes to provide good handling and great stopping ability. The rubber meets the road through 235/75R15s in the rear and 205/75R15s in the front mounted on chromed U.S. Wheel alloys. 1930s style with turn of the century comfort and convenience.

It will be an object of envy for many and one of desire for others. Maybe you? Fair warning. Numerous buffing and polishing wheels were injured in the building of this car. Before that gorgeous Silver and Orange two tone paint was laid on this car, a tremendous amount of time was spent in the preparation and adjustment of the body panels. Also, please spend some time checking out the underside of this car too. The fit and finish of the chassis is almost more impressive than the body because there are so many components with so many nooks and crannies and they are all as shiny and spotless as the topside. Up front that three-piece grill of horizontal lines reaches all the way to the ground. The hood starts with a narrow nose and sweeps back, engulfing the cab of the car and flowing over the trunk with that delicious shade of Orange.

This is one seriously stylish vintage cruiser with traditional street rod flames. The rust free, all steel body was a perfect starting point for keeping the iconic lines of the 40 Ford original while updating it with modern running gear. It is the same roomy, comfortable car it always was, but is faster, drives better, and you gotta admit, the flames are pretty awesome. Paint jobs are never easy to get right, but at least this car didnt need any repairs or panel adjustments before getting down to the surface prep. Once that Black paint was laid down and it was certain that it would catch the light and reflect it back along the graceful curves of the body, then those traditional flames were laid out on the front and painted on. The view from directly in front is awesome. It leads with Yellow paint and a line of chrome running down the center of the hood splitting the polished Art Deco grill that is flanked by chromed tear drop headlights. It is all underlined by a sharp looking chrome bumper and grill guard. The flames trail off on the hood and fenders leaving the curve of the roof heading down over the split rear window and trunk as the focus of attention at the back. A Ford V8 badge graces the trunk lid and chevron shaped taillights are underlined by another shiny chrome bumper. Open the door and you will find a neat and clean interior with some nice modern upgrades. The door panel is simple in gray with a dark gray accent across the top and dark gray carpet on the bottom. The bench seat follows the same pattern with dark gray accents and piping on light gray. A late model GM tilt steering column has a two-spoke wheel with a Ford center and a billet end on the shifter for the automatic transmission. The dash panel has a nice set of VDO gauges with a speedometer in the center with fuel, oil, water, and voltage meters to each side of it. There is a Clarion AM/FM/Cassette player for your listening pleasure and a placard on the glove box door indicates participation at the 1997 Indy 500 with the Good Guys group. The glass in the car is all new and there is plenty of room both front and rear, so traveling in this car is a pleasure. Pop the hood and you will find outline flames on the underside and a tried and true 302 cubic inch V8 nestled down inside the engine bay. A chrome air filter assembly tops the engine and feeds an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake manifold. Finned aluminum Cobra valve covers look great and an MSD ignition sends the spark out through red plug wires. Signs of good routine maintenance include newer belts and hoses. Exhaust flows out through stock manifolds to a dual exhaust system with cutouts exiting under the running boards in the event you wish to make a little noise. Power is sent back through a 3-speed automatic transmission to a 9 Ford rear end. The front end is a Mustang II set up with coil springs, rack and pinion steering and disc brakes. The car sits on Coker wide white wall tires that are 225/75R15 in the rear and 205/75R15s in the front, mounted on old school steel wheels that are black and red with a polished ring and Ford center cap. A classic street rod with traditional flames. A solid, nice driving, comfortable car to cruise in. Come on down and check it out. You may decide to cruise on home with it.
