Latest Muscle Car Of The Week Episodes
While we normally show significant cars from the 60s and 1970s on Muscle Car Of The Week, there are some outstanding examples of late model performance machines in The Brothers Collection as well. Some call them Modern Muscle Cars, but we’re not trying to get caught up in the semantics. We're just here to share some awesome high-performance machines. This 2011 Nickey Performance Stage III S 427 Camaro bridges the gap between today's Technology and one of the names that started it all, Nickey Chevrolet, and is an over-the-top example of what modern engineering can do. This one makes 4-digit power but doesn’t require a racetrack to use it.
This week, we're taking a few moments to answer some of the most recent feedback we’ve received from email, Facebook, YouTube and other sources. We always appreciate reading the comments on the videos featuring the cars from The Brothers Collection, and we'll have another cool car next time on Muscle Car Of The Week!
There are many different interesting aspects behind the 1970 Yenko Deuce Nova, and we've explored some of these on previous episodes of Muscle Car Of The Week. If memory serves, we featured and orange one and a blue one from The Brothers Collection on our show, but today, we're taking a look a bright sunflower yellow example of this - as then described - “mini muscle car”.
At first glance, it appears to be a clean white 1971 Pontiac GTO convertible. Notice the wing and stripes… it’s not just a GTO, it’s The Judge! And a convertible! Pontiac fans are starting to tremble… because this is one of just 17 1971 GTO convertibles ever built with The Judge package. From The Brothers Collection.
Bobby Unser Interview and 1969 Ford Torino Talladega Pikes Peak Winner: Muscle Car Of The Week Episode 200
Welcome to the 200th episode of Muscle Car Of The Week! For this special presentation, we’re sharing an exclusive interview with 3-time Indy 500 winner Bobby Unser recorded at the 2016 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN) in Chicago featuring the amazing 1969 Ford Torino Pike’s Peak racer he drove to victory in 1969. The legendary cast of characters in the story includes Bunkie Knudsen, Smokey Yunick, Bill Stroppe, Holman & Moody, and many others, and Unser tells the fascinating story as if it happened yesterday. The car is a purpose-built stock car built by Bill Stroppe and Holman & Moody and is powered by a Smokey Yunick built Boss 429. Unser had not seen the car since ‘69, but he was surprised to learn that the car remains in as-raced condition today. He went on to share many stories of racing in general, and how to be a winner not only on the track but also in life, and a great recollection of a huge party after a winning snowmobile racing season! The display was a huge hit at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, and the car is a very special piece of racing history in the Brothers Collection. Enjoy the show, and thanks for watching Muscle Car Of The Week!
