Pigeon Forge Rod Run Fall ’13: Top Ten Picks

It’s been a few months since we’ve done the top ten picks, sorry I’ve been kind of slack. But I’m trying to get it fired back up along with some other features to figure out what people like and what they don’t like so we can prepare to go full blast into our 3rd year in 2014!

Had to take a double take on this one! I bet he gets some interesting looks going down the highway!

I wish I could have got a close up look at this Mercedes Benz, I’m guessing late model power, maybe LS? Never got a good look at it.

Nothing seems hotter right now than an old patina’d up truck with an LS motor shoved under the hood, this one is a great example of that!

This car had a built AMC power plant and ran 10 second 1/4 mile times. I really like the mix of strip and classic in this one. It was a car you could have won with on Friday night at the track and then won with on Saturday at the car shows. Not very often do you see a stock appearing classic this nice AND this fast and track ready.

Do I really need to explain?” Plus they were making tons of laps on the street! Nasty car!

5e 5d 5c 5b 5a

Coyote swaps are becoming more and more popular, but to see one in this old Mercury was very cool!

Did Oliver even make an old truck? This is one I guess? It was a new one for me and man was it slick!!

3.

3d 3c 3b 3a

Yeah, I know the distributor is in the wrong place, but this is still a REALLY slick car.

2.

2d 2c 2b 2a

If I would have had the money this car would have came home with me. When have you EVER saw a four door 150 car? They have to be rare. This would have made an excellent driver.

Plymouth Suburban? How cool is that! Look at the interior in this thing, all it needs is a late model Hemi and updated drivetrain and this would be an AWESOME street rod.

Mecum Houston: Thursday Cars To Watch

Its Mecum Auction time again! This auction takes Mecum to The Reliant Center in Houston, Texas. Here are our cars to watch for Day 1, Thursday!

TOP-10

 

Lot T127: 1979 Chevy Camaro Z28

My favorite body style of all the Camaro’s, these late second generation cars have came on strong over the last few years. This is a very nice example of one with the Z28 package and the rare 4-speed.

Lot T126: 1964 AMC Rambler American Convertible

This is a rare piece for sure, but rare isn’t always desirable. Very interested to see how big or little money this one goes for. Check out the rare “twin stick” overdrive set up on it!

rambler

 

Lot T191: 1972 Chevy C10 Truck

What an awesome truck, a mix of new technology with the A/C and LED tail lights but a truck that still keeps the classic look.

Lot T209: 1957 Chevy Wagon 150

I love a 1957 Chevy 150, I love the basic look, a wagon is even better! Check this one out!

1957

 

Lot T266: 1966 Dodge Charger

The ugly duckling so to speak of the Dodge Chargers. It caught my eye because we once had a 1966 Charger, only ours had the 426 Hemi in it.

charger

 

Lot T270: 1951 Ford Custom Sedan

It’s hard to beat the look of a 1951 Ford. This one is a little too stock for my liking but a nice car non the less.

51

 

Lot T289: 1990 Chevy Corvette ZR1

“King Of The Hill”, this was my dream Corvette growing up. This is a very, very nice example of a well kept ZR1.

Lot T302: 1995 Ford Mustang Cobra R

One of my bucket list cars, one of two hundred and fifty ever made.

cobrar

 

Lot T333: 1990 Chevy Silverado Truck

This is an interesting item, an old school tow rig. I really like the late model wheels, but the long bed kinda kills it too. Still a nice truck though, just not sure if its collectible or with today’s modern diesel’s usable enough to bring any kind of decent price.

1990

 

Lot T322: 1996 Chevy Grand Sport Corvette

I read an article at the begging of the year that stated the 1996 Grand Sport was one of the most collectible Corvette’s of all time. Personally I just don’t see it. Maybe this one will fetch big money and prove me wrong!
