Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, & Classics – Manns Restoration

The weather kept us inside today, so I decided to put together a little show reel for Manns Restoration. They truly do some of the finest automotive restoration work in the world. This is just a brief glimpse at some of their recent projects. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

Custom 1971 Plymouth ‘Cuda Show Car – Supercharged 6.1 Hemi V8

I thought you might like a look at this custom 1971 Plymouth Barracuda from Manns Restoration in Festus, MO. We plan to do a full video very soon, this is just a preview. It’s powered by a 6.1 Liter Hemi V8, topped with a Magnuson MagnaCharger. This beast is pumping out north of 600 HP. All that power is being funneled through a TR6060 Six-speed manual, back to a Dana 60 Rear. It’s rolling on Billet Specialties aluminum wheels and has Wilwood disc brakes all the way around. This thing has so many custom features, that is would be difficult to list them all here. It has a custom see through hood with similar styling to the original shaker hood scoop, carbon fiber accents, full custom interior, L.E.D. lighting, aftermarket gauges, custom stereo, etc. As you can see in the video, the paint is smooth like glass and the car is just as clean underneath as it is on top. I hope you find it interesting. I never cease to be amazed by the quality of the craftsmanship at Manns. They truly have assembled an amazing team. This particular car just recently received the Builder’s Choice Award at Goodguys Lone Star Nationals in Ft. Worth, Texas. We hope to get this car out on the road for a test drive in the days ahead. Thanks for watching!

Epic Test Drives – Muscle Cars and Pony Cars

Special Thanks to Fast Lane Classic Cars for allowing us the use of their cars and to Tom Abbett for helping us out with the driving.

This is a Mega-video for sure. Nearly 15 minutes of awesome muscle cars and pony cars. Fords, Chevys, Buicks, Pontiacs, and Mopars… a little bit of everything in this one. No superchargers or turbos, just big ol’ American V8’s. There is a big 572 Hemi, some Wedge Mopars, Big-block Chevy’s of course, and even a Cleveland headed Ford Windsor. I don’t expect everyone will last the whole 15 minutes, but I do hope you find it interesting. Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!

Awesome Test Drives of American Horsepower

This is a compilation of some of the awesome cars we’ve test driven over the past couple of years. Some supercharged, some turbocharged, and some just pure all-motor horsepower…no real rhyme or reason to the selections. Just killing some time while we’re kind of snowed in here. Hope you like it, thanks for watching!

Nostalgia Drag Racing Action at Gateway Motorsports Park

I thought you might like watching some drag racing action in the winter, so I threw this vid together. I took a bunch of Nostalgia Drags footage that we had shot earlier at Gateway Motorsports Park and put together a new mix. There are cars in here that you have seen in previous videos, but I still thought you might find it interesting. Thanks for watching!

Test Drive 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona 440 V8

It’s not often that we get to look at a car like this one. It’s an original 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. This beast is one of only 503 Daytona’s built and it’s in truly immaculate condition. It’s still powered by the original 440 V8 4 BBL, factory rated at 375 HP and 480 Lb-Ft of torque. This is one of the famous winged cars, that forced rule changes in Nascar after breaking all the speed records at the time. It’s painted in the correct T5 Copper paint and it’s riding on a beautiful set of Magnum 500 chrome rims, with white letter tires. This is definitely one of the most collectible Mopar’s of all time and one of the most sought after muscle cars of any type. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
