Chevrolet has revealed on its Facebook page a selection of vehicles that will be on display at the SEMA Show in just a few weeks time. These aren’t the “official” Chevy SEMA Show cars (those ones tend to be much more tame, with a near-production look), but we have to think Chevy will again be… Continue Reading...
Ford has just announced the remainder of its SEMA lineup of custom cars, which will joint the eight Fiestas on display at Ford’s usually huge presence at the aftermarket expo.

As we get closer to closer to SEMA, the buzz around all the show cars making their debut has really grown.

Having already previewed aLL STaR Performance’s Chevrolet Camaro, we’re now introduced to Raging Bull Marketing’s widebody monster,… Continue Reading...
Here’s some more American-tuned muscle that will be making its way to the SEMA show floor next month. Built by CULT Energy Drink, this Dodge Challenger SRT8 sports a menacing flat black profile, one-off custom fabricated widebody kit and a supercharged 6.1-liter V8 HEMI. Clearly the goal of CULT was to get plenty of attention… Continue Reading...

In total, eight modified Fiestas will be on display and Ford has given us a sneak peak at just what… Continue Reading...
The new Ford Mustang GT has only been on the market for a few months and Roush hasn’t wasted any time in introducing what it calls the 5XR Mustang tuning package for $15,390. Much of that cost goes to the R2300 Roushcharger, taking horsepower to 525-hp (from the factory 412-hp) and torque to 465 ft-lbs…. Continue Reading...
Lingenfelter is up to its old tricks again, this time pumping out 670-hp and 565 ft-lbs of torque from the Corvette’s LS3 powerplant. The bulk of the power comes from an Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger in combination with Lingenfelter’s CNC-ported LS3 heads and their recently developed GT9 ZR1 supercharger camshaft. One of the main selling points… Continue Reading...
In case the new 2011 Ford Shelby GT500 isn’t enough to satisfy your craving for speed, Carroll Shelby’s Shelby American tuning shop will now offer an aftermarket Super Snake tuning package that will deliver up to 800-hp. That’s right, because the 550-hp machine isn’t enough already. The Super Snake kit will include a 6-speed manual transmission… Continue Reading...
We’ve been hearing through the rumor mill that Tjin Edition would be pulling off a trifecta of vehicles this year and so far we have seen the Fortune Motorsports / Tjin Edition Honda CR-Z and the Universal Technical Institute / Tjin Edition Ford Fiesta.

So you’ve gotten yourself a 2010 Ford Mustang and the 2011 Ford Mustang has been announced and you’re a little… disappointed. Your first thoughts are to trade in your 2010, but then you realize it’s not a wise investment. Your second thought is to hit the Internet to scour the web to make your 2010… Continue Reading...
We’re probably missing something here, but clearly there’s a higher demand for armored vehicles than we ever thought. First was the Jaguar XJ Sentinel, that we just had to poke a little bit of fun at, and now Hennessey has gotten their hands dirty by armor-plating their modified Raptor and even adding the APV designation… Continue Reading...
There’s no questioning that SEMA is the number one aftermarket automotive show of the year, but there’s also no denying that it has lost a lot of its luster the last couple of years. We can probably blame the economy’s downturn for most of it, but at least now we know that SEMA is trying… Continue Reading...

If there was ever a time we wanted to attend and auction and bid for a car with every penny in our pocket, this would be it. Even though this isn’t the original Ghostbusters Ecto-1, the time, work and attention to detail put into this Cadillac replica gets all our respect. The 1959 Cadillac S&S… Continue Reading...
Someway, somehow this “creation” managed to fetch over $40,000 on eBay. Needless to say, this surely proves there’s absolutely no accounting for taste. Funnier still is reading the description on eBay about this one-of-a-kind Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Concept replica. But we’re less amused by the fact that this replicar meant they had to destroy a… Continue Reading...
The car features a custom built chassis by local fabricator Terry “TJ” Wood and is powered by a 454 cubic inch (7.4-liter) Chevrolet big-block V-8. Continue Reading...

Now here’s a Corvette that we can see ourselves in. Howard Tanner of Redline Motorsports teamed up with Dan Carlton of DeNooyer Performance to unleash the HTR-GS640/SC. We’re not quite sure why they’d make it such a mouthful to say rather than just calling it a really badass Corvette, but really, the name is about… Continue Reading...
