Tag Archives: Hot-rod

With Hot-rod tag we meant all custom or classic vintage cars, trucks, pickups, mopars, muscles from US and EU. But we are aware what Hot-rod term stands for- Hot rods are typically old, classic American cars with large engines modified for linear speed. The origin of the term “hot rod” is unclear. Roadsters were the cars of choice because they were light, were easy to modify, and could be bought for a low price. The term became commonplace in the 1930s or 1940s as the name of a car that had been “hopped up” by modifying the engine in various ways to achieve higher performance.

1969 Plymouth GTX

The GTX was to be an exceptional blend of style and performance. What differentiated it from a normal Belvedere was its special grille and rear fascia, shared with the Satellite, chrome “pit stop” fuel filler cap and optional racing stripes. For the performance aspect of the vehicle, a heavy duty suspension system was made standard. Standard too was Plymouth’s 440 cu in (7.2 L) V8 called the “Super Commando 440”. The engine was rated at 375 hp (280 kW). Buyers in 1967 could pay an extra US$546 and replace the 440 with Chrysler’s 426 cu in (7.0 L) Hemi. The 426 was nicknamed the “Elephant.”

El camino in wikipedia:
Chevrolet El Camino is a coupé utility/pickup vehicle that was produced by Chevrolet between 1959–60 and 1964-87.

Introduced in the 1959–1960 model years in response to the success of the Ford Ranchero pickup, its first run lasted only two years. Production resumed for the 1964–1977 model years based on the Chevelle platform, and continued for the 1978–1987 model years based on the GM G-body platform.

Although based on corresponding Chevrolet car lines, the vehicle is classified and titled in North America as a truck. GMC’s badge engineered El Camino variant, the Sprint, was introduced for the 1971 model year. Renamed Caballero in 1978, it was also produced through the 1987 model year.

The Original Sting Ray


When did you first realize that you loved cars? Maybe it was the time you caught a glimpse of a Ferrari as you were sitting in the back of your parents minivan. Or maybe it happened after watching your older brother do a burnout in his rusted out Camaro. For owner Brian Hobaugh, his love of cars started thanks to his Dad and a certain 1965 Chevrolet Corvette that’s been in their family for over 30 years.

The Ferrari 250 GTO

Using hyperbole to describe the 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO is unnecessary. The car speaks for itself. It is one of the last (of thirty-six) Ferrari GTOs ever built. This particular one, chassis #5571, was the first of the Series II bodies. The 3.0L V-12 produces about 300 horsepower and it completed multiple endurance races, winning its class in the Daytona Continental 2000km (this car’s first race), Sebring 12 hour, and Nassau TT.

The driver is Mr. Derek Hill, who won the Ferrari Challenge International Championship in 1995 and the Formula Dodge West Coast in 1996, and raced a Bugatti EB110 at Le Mans. Additionally, he has a special attachment to this car as it was his dad, Fomula One Champ Phil Hill, that raced it in Daytona and Nassau. But what is the car really like? Well, “It’s so hard to describe just how incredible it is to drive this car at speed. I mean, it’s really a certain kind of ecstasy.” We wish we could give you a first-hand account but, just like you, we’re relegated to dreaming. If you’re still reading, thank you. But we know why you’re here, go on now, watch the video.
