Elmer’s cousin Tony Bischoff at BES Racing Engines helped put together a fresh big block Chevy to kick all the resto out of this project. They started with an overbored Merlin block, and built it up with Dart Race heads, a Super Victor intake from Edelbrock, a Quick Fuel QFX-Series carburetor, Lemons custom headers, and more.

The Good Kind of Misery: Elmer Bischoff’s 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS

Every project car encounters a speed bump along the way. Sometimes it’s a part that doesn’t fit quite right the first time, or some missing fasteners, or maybe the instructions […]

Every piece of the Nova’s original chrome trim has been brushed to a satin finish 
for a sleek, stealthy look. “It killed me to have to do that to the door handles,” 
says Ed. “The original ones were so pitted that I had to buy a new pair, then I 
immediately scuff them up!”

The added color depth in the bumpers comes courtesy of a nickel coating (rather 
than traditional chrome), and the whole look is finished off with a custom billet fuel filler cap.

Checkmate: Dave Madej’s 1932 Ford Coupe

Chess is a game of strategy—you start with a board full of pieces and hope to still have your king by the end of play. When Dave Madej jumped back […]

Rather than money, Dan invested a lot of time, meticulously restoring the body, engine, and trim. Having years of experience and access to his dad’s shop certainly helped, but for a car this size, it was still a lot of work.

Old Soul, New Blood: Dan Panaia’s 1963 Buick Riviera

Old-timers complain about the kids these days, with their “Internet,” and “smartphones,” and lack of appreciation for fine hotrods. Well, we found one kid they like a lot, in spite […]

There's a whole lot of wheel and Falken rubber tucked under the Impala's back fenders. "I wanted big wheels, but I didn't want to tub the factory wheelwells," Rodgers said. "There's not much room to spare when I lower the car all of the way."

Mark's brother Don just happened to have a spare Hemi sitting around, so when Mark bought the Barracuda, Don just gave it to him to replace the stock 340. Mark has treated the free Hemi right, starting with a .030" overbore, then topping it with a 6-71 supercharger and manifold from BDS. It also sports an all-COMP Cams Valvetrain and Mopar Performance cylinder heads.

The barns of the world are filled with widowed project cars, forced into hiding once their owners—or the wives of their owners—got fed up. This billboard-tailed Barracuda might have joined […]
