What a great way to start 2015! The V8 Speed & Resto Shop built '69 Chevelle landed a full feature in the February 2015 issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines Magazine, on newsstands now! Thanks Hemmings, and congrats to the owner Al and the V8 Crew!
Here's a fun clip of some super-bad muscle cars tearing up the road course, autocross, and speed-stop challenge at the 2009 Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational. It looks like fun because it is!
Sometimes, restorations need to be "un-done" to fix marginal work and to bring a restored car to a new level. This was the case with the 1969 Chevelle "SS 496" convertible built in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop, a car that had been restored a couple times previously, but needed a total re-do with some upgrades to really be a standout.
A cool project was dropped off at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop the other day, consisting of a super-clean 1969 Ford F100 Ranger and a 2002 Ford Lightning pickup. Can you guess what happens next?

Manual transmission swaps into Muscle Cars are extremely popular, and many companies make retro-fit kits allowing a late-model 5 or 6-speed manual to be installed in the factory position in older cars. However, just because a shifter fits the car does not mean it fits the driver! Twist Machine came up with their Billet Adjustable Shifter Handle that allows you to place the shifter in any of 7 positions, guaranteeing you'll find a neutral, comfortable spot to match your reach and driving habits. You remember how much you like your tilt steering column? This shifter will help in the same way. You will be a better driver because of it.
