  • This is a 1997 Acura Integra Type R that was 1 of only 320 1997 models for North America. All of those 320 models were painted in Championship White. This Type-R has the original 1.8L B18CS VTEC that makes 195 horsepower @ 8,000 rpm. That may not sound like much, but it was the highest horsepower per liter in an Naturally Aspirated engine in North America at the time. This one also features the front end, rims, and some interior components from the Japanese version of this model. I grew up with these racing Honda Civic's all over town and these would leave them wishing they bought a type R. These Japanese versions were extremely rare at the time here in Southern Ontario, but they were still sought after. #SwipeLeft to see the rear of this classic import. Since these were such a big part of my childhood, I was wondering... What was your first car? Leave your answers, specs, and stories in the comments below. I can't wait to read them.

  • Plymouth made their last car on this day back in 2001, so I thought I would share something special. This is a car that many might not know they were making. I’ve been waiting a long time to share this and now seems appropriate. I realize it isn’t a classic car, but it is based on one of the most iconic classic Mopar’s. This is the Sox & Martin Plymouth Hemi Cuda Street Edition with a 5.7L Hemi V8 engine. Lots of classic details went into this remake including the 1971 style front grill, the pistol grip shifter, and the rear tail lights. I think they did a better job keeping more style of the classic model on this one, then they did on others like the Charger and Challenger. This car is the first street legal one they built, as you can see by the badge on the dash in this video, and is part of an amazing private collection. In case you couldn’t tell by the cars in the background 😂. Do you think this Hemi Cuda is a better representation of the old classic? Leave your thoughts in the comments below and let me know.

  • I had a great time today hanging out with @chill.man.318 and his 1974 Plymouth Duster. This classic used to have a slant 6 with a 3 speed automatic and was painted in a matte forest green. The previous owner changed it over to a 340 cubic inch engine with a 4-speed manual transmission. They also painted it this metallic green, a beautiful colour for a car like this. #SwipeLeft to see the #Details of this beauty including the engine and interior. Would you like to see more of this Duster? Maybe some rolling shots or a few videos? Simply answer YES or NO in the comments below and tell us what you'd like to see.

  • There’s something about old classic wagons that always draws me in. Maybe it’s the styling or the ample room they seem to have over today’s crossovers or SUV’s. This Plymouth Belvedere 2 is one of my favorites for both those reasons, this one has an incredibly clean engine as well. #SwipeLeft to see the #Details of this wagon including the engine and interior. 2 questions for this post, what’s your favorite classic wagon? Do you think they should bring back a wagon? Leave your answers in the comments below and let me know your thoughts.

  • I love the tail lights on this 1970 Dodge Charger R/T. I also like the matte black stripe along the back, but I'm not to sure about the spoiler. #SwipeLeft to see the #Details of this classic including the engine, interior and that added spoiler.

  • I have a soft spot for these mid 60’s Mustangs, my grandfather used to own one. I never got to see it though as he sold it long before I was born. I’ve always liked them ever since hearing the stories about him owning one. I think this would be something he would like. This 1960s Ford Mustang has a super clean Ford Racing 347 cubic inch engine and a racing interior, minus the cage. I like how only the drivers seat was changed to a racing seat and how they kept the classic stuff about the car, yet put in newer tech as well. Take the control panel and the hidden stereo in the glove box, the Sparco steering wheel or the seat. It’s a great blend of retro classic and modern tech. #SwipeLeft to see the #Details of this classic including the engine and interior. What classic car do you wish stayed in your family? Leave your stories in the comments below, I can’t wait to read them.

  • @chassisstop built this beautiful 1969 Chevrolet Nova for owner @lowlid2 . This classic has a Chassis Stop Race Cars one-off full chassis, C7 suspension and hand formed carbon fiber inner wheel wells and belly pans. For the drivetrain they went with an all-aluminum Stefko Racing LSX engine and a Chris Jansen 4180e transmission. A custom 9” rear end with aluminum Strange Centre Section and 3.50 Detroit TrueTrac Posi. Fully custom stainless-steel headers and exhaust were made and they used Wilwood 6-piston brakes help this beauty stop. Wiring was done by @tireguy1 and a fully custom interior with fabricated seat pans, shaped foam and recovered dash pad was done by @uneek_upholstery . The final assembly and detail was done by @correia6258 . The last detail of this build was to paint it in Porsche Cream White, a great contrast to the black racing interior. #SwipeLeft to see the #Details of this build including the interior and that LSX engine. What would you rate this build 1-💯? Leave your answers in the comments below and let us know what you think.

  • I love the front end of this 1966 Dodge Charger. The colour is really nice as well, it goes with the black interior. #SwipeLeft to see more of this classic. What year and spec is your favorite charger? I wonder how many of you will say 1969 Charger R/T 😂. Leave your favorite year and details about your favorite Charger in the comments below.

  • Before the owner Ralph and his wife Dorothy had kids, they used to cruise around all the car hangouts in his 1973 Plymouth Barracuda. He loved his car, eventually showing it at one of the late 70’s car shows. Ralph sold his pride and joy to devote more time to his growing family. As his 3 boys grew up, Ralph talked to them about his former car, telling tales of car adventures and showing pictures of his ride. The three of them soon began talking of one day finding and building another car. One day on his drive home from work, Ralph spotted a Challenger in a farmer’s field. Telling the boys, they immediately became enthusiastic and off they went to see if they could buy their prize. A deal was struck and in March of 2004 a tow truck showed up at their house with it. This project was truly a group effort, each person had the same amount of input. All build ideas were fully discussed until a plan of attack was decided. The close association required on the Challenger, the hours spent in the garage working together, all served to bring father and sons closer together. Over the next 2.5 years, the body was disassembled, stripped, repaired, and rebuilt as necessary. Many hours were spent tracking down necessary parts. Interior upholstery pieces were replaced with “new” old stock items, except the seats. They were reupholstered in two colours of vinyl and embroidered “Challenger R/T” on each headrest. Bodywork was done by one auto body shop and the Curious Yellow paint was done by another. They put in a 360 engine with a stock 727 with a shift kit. 8 ¾ rear end and 3.91 gears help get the power to the ground. At their first Speedorama with the new car, they won both their car, they won both their class and “Best Dodge”. Best of 
all, they are closer today than on the day they started, which is a great thing to think about while we are all on quarantine. #SwipeLeft to see the engine and interior. What classic would you like to find and restore? Leave your answers in the comments below, I’d love to hear about some projects.
