Restorable Arizona Classic Cars For Sale.

Imagine what a sight to behold after the Hoover Dam tour… A good number of 40’s 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s projects and parts cars just waiting for a Bedouin to resurrect their sun faded glory. Golden Valley, AZ

Classic Car Crusher 1956 Cadillac Coupe Deville

Classic Car Crushing!, Stop Classic Car Crushing! No Comments

WHY is this ’56 Caddy Coupe Deville of all things, going to the Crusher?

What I find sad is that that there are a lot of Cadillac collectors that would have paid thousands for that rusted out shell. Whats even sadder is that the owner of this yard would rather get 60 dollars crushing it rather than a grand selling it !

ay Leno Shows Off His 1,070 Horsepower 1966 Toronado

Jay’s Olds Toronado was masterminded by Bernard Juchli at Jay Leno’s “Big Dog Garage” in Burbank, California.

Here’s what Jay Leno’s Toronado engine looks like…..Here’s the Specs: This isn’t your father’s 1966 Toronado! Beneath this unassuming skin lies a 1,000 + horsepower twin-turbo engine from GM Performance Parts.

Oldsmobile Toronado Jay Leno

AND… It’s a small block!

To harness all that horsepower, Bernard and company had to get rid of the venerable front-wheel drive that some consider a hallmark of the Toronado. A bit of brilliant mechanical surgery replaced the old system with a donor suspension, torque tube, and rear-mounted transaxle from a C5 Corvette.


What happens when a 1,000 horsepower goes through a Corvette rear-end?

Yup…! MAN, DOES IT EVER Smoke em’up!

Here’s 2 Videos with Jay Leno talking about his 1966 Oldsmobile Torondo

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Review by Jay Leno

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat 1 Comment

2015 Dodge Challenger Review by Jay Leno:

When Sweet Chariots saw this 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Muscle Car Review, we knew Jay Leno was the perfect test driver for this incredible “Imported from Detroit” Rocket…, knowing his genuine  appreciation for extreme engineering and performance in this Dodge: A Techno Muscle Machine.

That makes the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat a thrill to drive…!

Yesterday’s Muscle Cars had Brute Force, Dare to Hang On Braking, Oversteer, Body Roll & Rattles on every turn, but today, thanks to Dodge, we have Engineering, Technology & “tweakability” for the Driver to dial the car in with your fingers! Not turning 1 wrench….!

Yeah, this SRT has Brute Force Power…, Road Course Driftability…. and Broadway Show manners all on stage. Just select the “program” & its yours….!

Want the ability to select 700+, 500+ or 300 horsepower from a “touchscreen”…? Click, Done, Hang On…!

Click another setting…. Select “valet” mode & give this Dodge to your mother to drive, if you trust her with this Challenger SRT that can do 10’s in the 1/4 mile right from the Dealer…. Or to the grocery store… Ok mom…, Take it for a spin!

How about Suspension and 8 speed Torque-Flight transmission tuning…, from the same touch screen, so mom’s eggs won’t break when her shift points aren’t in Track mode, Firm and milliseconds apart…. Thanks Dodge! Talk about Full Menu or A’Lacarte….  The 2015 Challenger SRT has it all….!

What’s that again? A Drag Car, Road Course Car, and a Grocery car…. A “Custom Car” Who needs 4 cars…? Dodge Engineers Did It! Great Job, we always knew you’d make American Muscle truly American again…!

What’s Jay Leno gonna say, with a 707 horsepower, 650 lb-ft of torque, Supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi…? “End of Discussion” Dodge says…. We agree…! What’s MORE to be said?

Oh, by the way, a 10′ x 13′ room will have the air sucked out of it in a minute with this SuperCharger’s thirst for air…

Do you want Rubber? Yeah, it’s got that…. We enjoyed watching! Thank’s Jay…
