John Craft, Texas, has a couple of very interesting projects going on in his garage. The first is a real deal 1964 Ford Galaxie race car. You need to know a little history on this car. It was originally the 1964 Holman Moody “House car” (C4HM=10041). It was an “extra” chassis that H&M prepared for “celebrity” [...]

Unfortunately, Katrina could not make this show since she is recuperating from hip surgery but wants everyone to know she won’t miss another one. To start with the Muscle Car and [...]
Darrell Waltrip’s storied Winston Cup Career began in May 1972 at the Talladega Motor Speedway in Alabama. Waltrip rolled onto the track in a 1971 #95 Mercury Cyclone prepared by Holman Moody. Ironically, the chassis of this car was that of the original 1967 Ford Fairlane Mario Andretti drove to victory in the 1967 Daytona [...]

There are few race car drivers that I respect more than Bobby Allison and few race cars that make the juices flow like his number 22 1969 Dodge Dayton. When I heard the sound of that Hemi and looked up and saw the number 22 roar into the Convention Center at the 2010 Forge Muscle [...]
Recently we featured an Australian race shop and museum but today we wanted you to see what is happening in New Zealand! This is a video sent to us by readers and friends from “down under”. In some ways it looks just like here in the States and the cars could belong to any of [...]
You may have seen this car on our site before or on the pages of HOT ROD magazine but you have never seen it like this before. Owner Rick Stanton just completed a chassis dyno run with his Boss 429 Powered Ford Talladega and made some outstanding numbers. The car pulled 250 mph at 7,483 [...]

The Plymouth Superbird is a car you will never forget once you see it. If you ever saw it on the race track there was nothing like it…well, other than the Dodge Daytona! Even when it was on the smaller ovals out in the Midwest in 1970-71 it was a site to behold. Ramo Stott [...]
In the mid 80s when I moved to Southern California the first thing I did was get season tickets to Riverside. It was a shrine for me. I grew up seeing it in movies and reading about it in magazines and watching races on TV. Within a few years I had my perfect season tickets [...]
Growing up I lived for the summer Wednesday night stock car races at the Mahaska County Fair Grounds in Oskaloosa, Iowa. I still do. I have been trying to find a good dirt track with that kind of racing for years. I don’t know that I ever will. The 50s and 60s in the mid-west [...]
