Corvette Museum to make the ultimate car experience!

Corvette Museum wants to build motorsports complex

While being a huge commitment at $35 million. Building a motorsports complex across the highway from the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky certainly would make for one of the ultimate car experiences in the US. The complex would include two road courses, a 1/4 mile drag stip, and a giant auto cross skidpad. Here's hoping this comes to be.

Under the eBay radar find of the day. 1994 Impala SS

Looks like your typical run of the mill used Impala SS right? Wrong! What we have here is one VERY unique piece of automotive history. What's that in the window? A GM control label. The door jamb has an emission exempt tag dated 1992? Wait do my eyes play tricks on me? Yes that is a third pedal and manual shift lever. Yes this IS the infamous 94 Impala SS manual trans prototype. Formerly straight from the General's private stash in their Heritage Collection via the Barrett Jackson auction. If that manual trans hasn't got your attention, how about the modified 5.7 liter V8 packing 308 Horsepower vs the stock SS' 260Hp? This was the car dreams were made of in the mid 90s thanks to GM's John Moss. Maybe it's time that the General rolled out another rear drive Impala SS? For those that can't wait this one of one prototype can be yours for a mere $36,000 via eBay. Unfortunately though, the car was sold on a salvage title from GM, so you would have to get creative on registering this bad boy for the street. In the mean time enjoy the eBay link, and the attached Motor Week review of this very car from 1995.

Mitsuoka Galue Convertible

Mitsuoka Galue Convertible

It's part Rollys Royce. Part Cadillac. And All Mustang!

Despite how ugly it may be. That also makes it that much cooler. I can just see this thing running around Vegas
 right now.

FAW Red Flag Limo. Who's in the mood for Chinese?

FAW Red Flag limo

The body styling sure looks a lot like the Rolls Royce Phantom. Still looks good though. And more fitting of a Government leader than President Obama's Limo 1.

NASCAR of the 60s/

The real cars of NASCAR in the ’60s, with Freddie Lorenzen at Hemmings Blog.

From the days when the drivers drank/made hard liquor, smoke unfiltered cigarettes, and drove relatively showroom stock cars. This really was the prime of NASCAR. The cars were big, powerful, and cheatin was rampant.
