WTF? (Where’s The Fun?) - August 2014

AMC Performance

Who: Veronica Keip
What: '70 AMC Rebel Machine
Where: Pardeeville, WI
Why: Veronica was stoked to see an AMC in the Quickies photos a couple of months ago and sent some pictures of her car. She didn't include much in the way of details, but the pictures are great.

Chevelle Time Machine

Who: Gabe Cozza
What: '68 Chevrolet Chevelle
Where: Bay Shore, NY
Why: Gabe had a similar Chevelle about 30 years ago when he was 21. He wanted to recreate the car again and found this example for sale in Missouri. He did most of the restoration work himself, replacing the missing 396 with a '70 LS6 454, and adding a Comp cam, Edelbrock RPM intake manifold, a 1,000-cfm Holley, and a 150 shot of nitrous for just a bit more fun. He says cruising down the beach on a Saturday afternoon is like a trip back in time.

Owned By a Kid

Who: Jake Jones
What: '89 Ford Mustang
Where: Mustang, OK
Why: Here's what Jake wrote us: "I'm 13 years old, and I own an '89 Ford Fox-body Mustang. I love these Mustangs a lot. My cousin has a fast X275 Mustang, so I just had to have one to work on with my dad and my papa. We are torn between a street machine or a drag car. I love drag racing, but I want a cool street car! What do you think? Whichever way I go, I'll send pictures of it when its done. It would be so cool to see this in the magazine!" Hey, Jake, you can't go wrong either way.

S-15 Dualie??

Who: Mike Taylor
What: '91 GMC S15
Where: Hudgins, VA
Why: Well, it's interesting, and that's why we love the WTF section of the magazine. Mike tossed the truck's Iron Duke four-banger and dropped in a TPI 350 and TH 700R-4 trans from a Firebird. Somewhere along the way, he also ditched the bed and added the dualie axle. We're thinking he could also put really big slicks on back there.

From the Ice Planet Hoth

Who: George Manthorne
What: '86 Chevrolet Camaro IROC
Where: Nova Scotia, Canada
Why: George says he's been a subscriber since the mid '80s and, "this is the closest I will come to getting my car in your magazine." It has a blueprinted 350 with a Holley 750 carburetor, a Weiand Sportsman intake, Dart heads, Comp roller cam and rocker arms, Hedman shorty headers refinished in ceramic, a Flowmaster American Thunder 3-inch exhaust system, a Centerforce clutch, and Chris Alston subframe connectors. It recently made 387 hp to the wheels and probably sounded great doing it. He writes, "It's the middle of the winter up here, and my baby is stored away. Seeing her in Car Craft would warm me up."
We say: Consider this a warm front, George.
