ASTONISHING CUSTOM 1955 CHEVY PICK UP TRUCK

Today we are going to share with you ’55 Chevy Street Truck, a true masterpiece.

We personally are more fans of muscle cars than truck vehicles, this custom ’55 Chevy is something that everyone would enjoy, the video interview Scottie did with the builder and owner was really amazing.

Guys at “B Rod & Customs”, are responsible the tremendous body work and 3-tone paint job done to this Chevy pick up, most of the fabrication its made by Jeff himself, “Kirk Kustoms” shop have done an amazing job on the interior and under the hood this truck hides nicely detailed Impala LT1 engine… a Whiskey barrel in the bed to hold the air suspension equipment, how great that sounds

Watch the video to see more details on the amazing Truck.

Got To Love This Beautiful 1969 Chevy Camaro

At RKM motors you can see a lot of beautiful resto-mods coming through the door.

This particular example, a 1969 Camaro Z/28 RS, takes mild to wild by wrapping a 468 cubic inch big block V8 and a 4-speed Muncie transmission in deep purple metallic paint, bright white Z/28 stripes and aggressive 17 and 20 inch wheels.

The car has an amazing look, sounds even better and puts a smile to the people’s face, anywhere it gets driven.

The vehicles original pain was Olympic Gold, the car’s life started as a fun but conservative looking Chevrolet coupe, but all that changed when it adorned its deep Purple Metallic paint.

When put under the light the paint transitions from almost a dark blue to around the hue of a bottle of Royal Purple oil; except with a lot more gloss.

Major time was spent from someone making sure the body on this 1969 Camaro was as close to perfect as possible. The total cost of restoration and modification for this car was over $60K and it was money well spent.

This car’s white stripes look as natural as if this color combo was a factory option.

The Rally Sport grille and hideaway headlights add an element of cool that you don’t find with other muscle cars.

A cowl induction hood and familiar front and rear factory spoilers complement the RS grille to give the car a bit of race car DNA.

Optional front and rear Rally Sport bumper guards and optional dual mirrors add a little extra detail and Vision ‘Legend’ chrome wheels, 17 inches up front and 20 inches in the rear, ride 245/45/17 and 255/35/20 Nexen Z-rated radials to complete the cars package.

Even the stainless trim around the windows is in excellent shape and all the factory correct emblems are in perfect condition.

The typical small block Chevy that used to reside under the hood of this ’69 Camaro is long gone, and replacing it is a 468 cubic inch 450hp big block V8.

The monster is fed via braided fuel lines that send fuel through a modern Demon carburetor and into an equally modern and impressive Edelbrock aluminum intake.

A MSD electronic ignition system has replaced the OEM points distributor.

An aluminum radiator and electric cooling fan are a needed update from the original equipment steel radiator and crank driven fan.

Chrome valve covers, a chrome air filter housing, a chrome upper radiator support and a chrome master cylinder dress things up while aluminum pulleys and bow-tie bolts provide both  purpose and aesthetic appeal.

Under the satin black floor pan and behind that beastly motor is a Muncie 4 speed transmission.

Long tube headers flow into an aluminized Flowmaster exhaust system which snakes its way around a GM 10 bolt rear axle.

The car retains its factory leaf springs in the rear and makes good use of installed traction bars to put all of its power to the ground.

Power steering is an addition that wasn’t available from the factory but is welcomed, and power assisted front disc brakes provide a safer and more enjoyable experience while driving.

A completely new black vinyl interior was installed during the restoration. If you have a seat in the car the first thing you’ll notice is bucket seats that feel and look good as when the car rolled down the assembly line.

In front of you, the dash houses a Ken Harrison aftermarket AM/FM radio with cassette player, a factory tachometer and a factory speedometer.

The new console houses the functional 4 pack gauge cluster and the chrome Hurst short throw shifter.

The factory option sport styled steering wheel serves as a focal point while new seatbelts and new chrome trim on the new front and rear door panels add a touch of brightness.

The trunk has fresh spatter-finish paint throughout and is covered by a new houndstooth mat.

The workmanship of this vehicle is top notch and definitely an awesome update to a vintage muscle car design.

1970 Plymouth ‘King Kong’ Cuda

When we talk about one of the greatest street machines to ever have been built in Australia, 1970 Plymouth ‘King Kong’ Cuda for sure is going to make an appearance on our mind.

Grаеmе Cоwin is one of the godfathers of the car community behind the scenes, it’s a big influential figure in the sports of sprint karts and drag racing.

So it’s not surprising at all that his King Kong Cuda is a really big deal.

The Plymоuth Bаrrаcudа,  serves as Rосkеt Industries’ promotional car in all its glory, the car is paraded at events around the nation and has won everything that there is to be won.

1970 Plymouth 'King Kong' Cuda

Original plan was to build a  ‘strееt-аblе’ Hеmi-powered but as the build continued, the vehicle required some serious surgeries to get to the desired finish.

So what was planned to be finished building in a year prolonged to five years and six times the budget.

1970 Plymouth 'King Kong' Cuda

“Thе cаr tооk cоntrоl аnd wе hаd tо feed it. It consumed pеоplе livеs аnd wе аll wаntеd to quit multiplе timеs. Bеliеvе mе, if I hаd knоw whаt it wаs gоіng tо tаkе, I wоuld’vе nеvеr stаrtеd. But I guess it wаs sоmеthing wе hаd committed to аnd I likе tо finish what I stаrt,” Grаеmе musеs. “But in thе еnd, the cаr surpassed all expectations аnd wе аrе proud of whаt а grеаt tеаm оf pеоplе has achieved.”

1970 Plymouth 'King Kong' Cuda

The vehicles ‘King Kоng’ thеmе hаrks back to drag racing of yesteryear, and the 426 Hеmi еnginе wаs knоwn аs аn ‘еlеphаnt mоtоr’.

The metal sheet is all ironed out, and King Kong’s new PPG chаrcоаl grеy wаs lаid.

The rest of the vehicle is a  а 528-cubе EFI Hеmi, has acres of chrome details, and hooks up tо а 727 Tоrquеflitе аnd Strаngе 9-inch diff.

1970 Plymouth 'King Kong' Cuda

King Kоng Cudа as work of automotive art has it all-  bеlly-scrаping ridе, 700 horses, milе-widе rubbеr, а gаzilliоn gаugеs, crazy this, trick that beast the other.

Apart from chеst-thumping еnginе, thе Bаrrаcudа hаs nеvеr bееn оn а rаcе trаck, but still King Kоng Cudа is definitely one of the most amazing street machines ever built- no discussion.

There is nothing boring about the car, it’s brаwny, it’s loud and downright sexy.

Michigan is now ‘no-kill’ state for shelter animals

Michigan is now officially a “no-kill state” for shelter animals.

To be considered a “no-kill” state, 90 percent of animals are either returned to owners, transferred to other shelters and rescue organizations, or adopted.

“This is an amazing first for our state,” said Deborah Schutt, MPFA founder and chairperson. “When the shelters in a state combine to meet the 90% target, that state is considered No-Kill for shelter animals. Only Delaware, which has three shelters, compared to 174 in Michigan, also reached the No Kill benchmark last year.”

In 2018, Michigan reached that percentage.

“While it’s exciting to see Michigan as a state achieve No-Kill status by reaching the 90% goal, we still have a few communities struggling to save lives, especially with cats,” Schutt said. “We will continue to work with shelters and rescue organizations to implement best practices, decrease overall length of stay in the shelter and improve the quality of life for homeless pets while they are in a shelter.”

The Michigan Pet Fund Alliance (MPFA) began tracking these statistics in 2009 from annual reports submitted by shelters to the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development.

According to the MPFA, approximately 120,000 dogs and cats were being euthanized in Michigan shelters every year.

The MPFA said that number is now just over 13,000.
