1963 Corvette

This is a true ORIGINAL from 1963. It's equipped with a 360 HP fuel injected engine and 4-speed. The rear split window design was only manufactured for one year making this a very special car today.  However, the split window design was not well-received back in the day and owners of 1963 models actually started removing the split window swapping it out for the full window featured in the 1964 model.

1955 Gasser

Built by Don Caldwell, featured in RODZ magazine this car is nothing but fun. Equipped with a 327 Corvett engine bored to 331 C.I., wild camshaft, tunnel ram with duel 4 bbl carbs Tremec 5 speed trans, and a 4:11 posi rear end.

The Monrovia Missile

The Monrovia Missile is a 1962 Dodge Dart raced extensively at Souther California dragstrips. Most notably a regualr series points champion during the 70's under John Hale, sponsored by Hot Rod Performance in Torrance, CA. In recent years, Chrysler restoration expert Bob Mosher restored it and rebranded it, but it never made it back to the race track. Until a couple of years ago, Dale Snoke struck up a deal to honor its Southern California legacy and bring it back to life. The car is currently equipped with a stock displacement Dodge440 and consistently runs high 10 second quarter mile passes at 125 mph. The Monrovia Missile changed hands once again and is currently owned by Don Kurth who is planning on continuing the highly regarded legacy of this small slice of local drag racing history by taking it to the strip as often as possilbe. 

1932 Ford

This 1932 Ford Roadster Pickup is owned and built by our Director of Exhaust R&D, Don Lindfors. The all steel car features a fuel injected 351 Cleveland with a PerTronix Distributor, Custom Doug's Headers and the Iconic Smithy Mufflers backed by a Top Loader 4 speed and a Winters Quick Change rear end. A Finalist for the America's Most Beautiful Roadster award in 2017, it was featured on the Cover of The Rodders Journal and has since been seen driving all over the West Coast including a trip to Canada and back.

1936 Ford Gasser

Built by Henry Cota of Southern California, he and his brother installed a 350 Chevy engine topped with a tunnel ram manifold and dual 4 bbl carbs hooked to a Muncie 4 speed.  Posi-traction rear end with 10" x 15" pie cutter slicks makes this a real gas to drive on the streets.

Shelby Mustang

In 1966 Carrol Shelby teamed up with Ford to produce the GT350 Mustang race car and street car. Out of that collaboration came the Limited Edition GT350H, a special Mustang that could be rented from select Hertz Rent-a-Car locations. It quickly became known as the Rent-a-Racer, as many of the 1001 that were rented, raced over the weekend, and returned to Hertz. In 2006, they did it again with 496 cars produced. In 2007, they did 500 convertibles for the first time. In 2016, they built 140 like the example shown here owned by Greg Burrows, and call them GT-H, the rarest of the bunch.
