Derelict Wagon

April 8, 2011

This weeks featured car is a really cool ride. Jonathan Ward from TLC (Toyota Land Cruiser) who brought us the his new ICON version of the Land Cruiser and Military Jeep brings us something completely different… A station wagon? Well this is about a cool a wagon as it gets, a 1952 Chrysler Town and Country custom wagon, which has the front end replaced with a DeSoto front end. Why? Because he could! Jonathan’s ride features a late model hemi engine but even that is dressed up to look old school. The workmanship is awesome when you get close and see how it was set up. This car was featured in Hot Rod Magazine May 2011, and it deserves it!

Freightliner Truck

March 25, 2011

Not that often you see a 1900+ Hp Diesel Race Truck. Mike Ryan’s Freightliner is just that. With it producing close to 2000hp on Diesel fuel, it no wonder this truck produces some spectacular results on the track and places such as Pikes Peak. This ‘lightweight’ Freightliner weights in at just about the 9900 pound mark, features a 2 huge turbocharges and numerous other tricks to allow this truck to perform, well, crazy fast as well as handle well enough to compete in Pikes Peak and finish near the top of the marks. We won’t say how cool it was to see it come to the shop in Gulf Racing Livery!
