Swedish rebuilt of a '68 Dodge Charger RTR

Johan Eriksson brings his 1968 Dodge Charger RTR with a Viper V10 and twin turbos, producing 1000 horsepower! Little spoiler: Also contains very nice sound system. Personally, I do not like the electrical opening of hood and trunk and I prefer normal wheel size, but other than that, this is a beautiful show car.

1967 Shelby GT 500 convertible - extremely rare

November 15, 2013
As clouds gathered in the South Florida skies just before this past weekend, potentially spoiling plans for many of the car shows in our area, the Car Show Television crew headed north, to Winter Park for the Winter Park Concours d’Elegance- a very wonderful and different kind of show for us. The festivities started off on Friday night at the Orlando-Sanford airport for the duPont REGISTRY™ Aeroport Reception- a hangar party that was simply exceptional. It had everything from entrepreneurs to circus performers, rides in Ferraris and Lambourghinis, great food, drink, music, private jets, and, of course, CARS!!! There was even a fireworks display toward the end of the party. What a fabulous introduction to what promised to be a car lovers’ DREAM weekend…

Who is the Boss!?

This Candy Apple Red 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 is a beautiful example of the street version of Ford's Trans Am entry.

The 1970 Mustang changed little from ’69 and included dual-unit headlights instead of the quad-unit used previously.

The Boss 302 sported a redesigned dual exhaust system, competition suspension, and the standard Hurst shifter. Smaller intake valves could be found, along with aluminum valve covers from ’69.

The 1969-70 Boss 302 engine is a unique Ford small-block featuring a thin-wall high nickel content casting.

According to contemporary road tests in Car & Driver, the Boss 302 completed the quarter-mile in 14.9 seconds at 93.4 mph.

The original designer, Larry Shinoda, came up with the Boss moniker as a way to pay homage to Bunkie Knudsen, the CEO at Ford and an outspoken proponent of the car's development. He just called him "Boss," instead of "Mr. Knudsen." He told his designers, "I want to design a car that's the coolest Mustang out there. I don't want somebody else's name on it, like a Shelby, " so they call it the Boss Mustang, because they designed it for the new boss.
