Collection of CarCast Featured Cars

Citroen SM

March 18, 2011

Alex Roy brings in not his European Police Car (His BMW M5) but rather a more interesting car in his collection. The 1973 V6 Maserati powered Citroen SM or for those with fancy keyboards Citroën. The Citroen features a strange but interesting suspension that is hydraulic based and has more hoses and pipes then the garden department at the Home Depot.

Year One Trans Am

March 5, 2011

Bud Brutsman brings in the Year One Trans Am. This model is the ‘Ban3’ Tran Am from Year One Muscle Car parts. This car was used as part of one of Bud’s Television (Speed Channel) shows where he recreated the Smokey and the Bandit beer run. This is a bit different then the car used, starting with, well, everything. 605Hp LS7, full suspension redesign, body panels, tubular front sub-frame and a lot more. About all you need is a CB radio and a cowboy hat.

Big Oly Bronco

March 5, 2011

Our Featured Car of the week is the Big Oly Bronco Trophy Truck which is owned by Marshall Madruga. Marshall was inspired by the Parnelli Jones driven Oly Bronco from the 70’s and decided to a modern rendition of Parnelli’s Ford Bronco. Not much Ford in his, but it’s in right the spirit. Many people came together to help build this truck including Troy from Ford Performance Solutions who built the very healthy motor. And yes this is street legal… so far.

1956 Ford F100

February 18, 2011

This weeks featured car, well, truck was built by Bodie Stroud (BS Hot Rods). The 1956 Supercharged Ford F100 was built for Bodie’s Father-in-law. It features a supercharged small block Chevy, and all the nice work one can expect from a Son-in-law. Bodie wouldn’t admit who got the better end of the bargain, but the truck is smoking hot. Even Sonny takes a look at the Ford and gives it thumbs up!
