Custom Shop’s 1962 Big-Block Corvette

  Custom Shop’s 1962 Big-Block Corvette First-generation Corvettes aren’t a common sight at the Summer Nats, so even after a few laps around the Custom Shop’s Copper Topless 1962 C1 we couldn’t quite figure out where factory fiberglass ended and the custom work began. © Hot Rod Network StaffInitially we were struck by the big-block Chevy that was shoehorned into the car's compact engine bay. As if a 596ci V8 weren't enough, it's force-fed with a Vortech supercharger to the tune of 1,048hp. John Wargo is in Bowling Green representing The Custom Shop, which is outside of Chicago, and he walked us through some of the modifications we'd missed.

After taking a trip to Bonneville, Mike had always wanted to build a land speed racer. He wanted a competitive vehicle but also needed to keep the project within a relatively low budget, which required some creativity. As a result he crafted a chassis for the car from steel tubing, designing everything from the SCTA-legal cage to the custom four link hooked to a Ford 9-inch from Tord8and9InchRear.com (his only sponsored part) with 2.47 gears in the rear. Mike incorporated a factory straight axle from a 1937 Ford, and in an effort to help minimize bump steer and make it more drivable (yes, he drives it on the street regularly), he incorporated a rack and pinion steering complete with power assist. The car sits on Ridetech's Shockwave air ride making for a comfortable ride and giving him the ability to adjust his ride height with the push of a button. Wildwood disc brakes and a functional parachute provide the much needed reliable stopping power. Upon finishing his chassis, he dropped on the model T body and decided to take four inches out of the bottom, nearly eleven inches out of the A pillar, and nine inches out of both the B and C pillars, giving the roof its aggressive rake. He proceeded to paint the body with a foam roller, giving it a very unique finish.

F-Body Madness – Super Chevy checks out the 2017 Classic Industries F-Body Nationals – Huge Gallery!

  F-Body Madness – Super Chevy checks out the 2017 Classic Industries F-Body Nationals – Huge Gallery! F-bodies (that would be Camaros and Firebirds for those not hip to the nomenclature) are arguably one of the most iconic cars ever churned out by General Motors. It was Chevrolet's answer to the Mustang and even though we are pretty biased we're convinced it won the pony car wars. Give the car's huge popularity it's no wonder so many clubs and organizations are loyal to the nameplate. But, what was really needed was a venue for likeminded Camaro fanatics to come together. That was the idea behind the Classic Industries F-Body Nationals held this year in Memphis, TN. Yep, an entire event dedicated to all things F-Body.

In order to save some money on the power plant, he sourced a 454 cubic inch big block Chevy from a friend's old boat. He had the engine bored 0.060-over and bolted on a set of Brodix oval port heads and a matching intake manifold that he happened to have stashed away. In order to get the power he needed, he opted for a twin turbo system using log manifolds he fabricated himself, a set of inexpensive 70mm GT45 turbos, wastegates and blow off valves he purchased off eBay, and a blow-through Holley carburetor from Horsepower Innovations. The fuel system consists of an Aeromotive belt-driven fuel pump and regulator, and the car is set to run on E85, making it what he refers to comically as an "Environmentally friendly" vehicle.

The whole project took only two years to complete building, and Mike built much of the car from scratch. The T already has some respectable accomplishments under its belt. Mike took the car to the Ohio Mile in 2016 and it ran a best of 205.9 MPH with his good friend Justin Brand behind the wheel making it the self proclaimed "World's Fastest Model T." After accomplishing that goal he put a set of Super Scooper paddle tires and ran it at the Waverly dirt drags, then most recently found himself the winner of the burnout contest at the 2017 Car Craft Summer Nationals, where he spun his drag radials to the cords.

The "Warren Special" may very well be coolest and most capable model T ever created and Mike stated that the entire project only cost him less than $8,000 from start to finish. We think it's safe to say that this isn't the last we've seen of the world's fastest Model T.

This Twin-Turbo Dodge Viper Just Set The RWD Record in the Half Mile .
<p>237 MPH of venomous V-10 speed.</p>That's not far off the speed of the world's fastest half-mile car, a 3,000 horsepower Nissan GT-R that broke the record earlier in the year. Thanks to a skillful right foot and unmatched throttle modulation, this driver was able to launch the two wheel drive machine off the line and achieve a speed that's just 18.5 MPH slower than the aforementioned overall title holder.
