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.

8.

8e 8d 8c 8b 8a

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!

7.

7d 7c 7b

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.

6.

6d 6c 6b 6a

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

5.

5e 5d 5c 5b 5a

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

4.

4b 4a

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.

1.

1e 1d 1c 1b 1a

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.

Friday Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Part Two: The Dirty Dozen

Like I said in my previous post today (click here to view it) there was no way I could pick just ten cars today at Barrett-Jackson. So here is the second round, the dirty dozen.

2009 Dodge Challenger Convertible
Lot Number 1063.1

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
09vert
Built by Mr. Norm, this one of Convertible Challenger with a ‘Cuda grille and side louvers is sure to bring some good money.

2009 Dodge Challenger
Lot Number 1063.2

09hardtop
You can’t have one without the other right?

1959 Chevrolet Corvette
Lot Number 1063

I told you these resto-mod vette’s were coming out of the wood work this year!

1970 Plymouth ‘Cuda AAR
Lot Number 1038

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
aar
Awesome example of a very nice AAR ‘Cuda. And all decked out in a nice traditional odd ball Mopar color scheme!

1971 Plymouth ‘Cuda Convertible
Lot Number 1037

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
71cuda
Very nice ‘Cuda. Old school Hemi with new school fuel injection.

1955 Chevrolet Corvette
Lot Number 1028

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
55vette
Most 1955 Corvettes featured a V8 for the first time, except for seven. This is one of those seven. Another worthless fact about this car is the last time it won a NCRS Top Flight award was in 1991 at Cypress Gardens which was also my very first NCRS event at the tender age of 5.

1959 Chevrolet Impala
Lot Number 1017

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
59
Our second 59 Impala Convertible of the day, but unlike the first original example this one is build to drive with a 6-speed and an LS1. It will be interesting to compare prices in the end!

1931 Ford Model A Roadster
Lot Number 1002

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
31
Its rare to see a nice original roadster, most of them are just fiberglass recreations.

1957 Chevrolet Corvette
Lot Number 991

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
57
I know, I know, this is like the 8th Corvette Resto-mod I’ve picked but they are just so dang cool!

1958 Chevrolet Corvette
Lot Number 983

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
58
Fine, I’ll pick a stock Vette. I mean after all 1958 is my favorite year of the straight axles and you’ve got to love a big brake car!

1970 Chevrolet Nova
Lot Number 943

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
nova
I’m not normally a big Nova fan but I’m diggin’ the factory big block and the black paint.

2000 Chevrolet Custom Corvette
Lot Number 978.1

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
5300
I’ve always been a huge fan of these cars since they came out a few years ago but they never really seemed to take off. I’m really curious to see what this one brings.

Thursday’s Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Top 10 Cars To Watch

Thursday at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2013! Here’s what we’ve got our eye on today! Be sure to tune into Speed for all the action!

TOP-10

1958 Pontiac Bonneville
Lot Number 753

CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFO
pontiac58
I’ve always loved the unique styling of the 50’s Pontiac’s, Buick’s, and Oldsmobile’s. From the door up you think 58 Chevy, but at second glance you know its something a little more special.

1959 Ford F100 “Shelby Farms” Truck
Lot Number 639

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
59ford
Usually when you here the word Shelby at Barrett-Jackson dollar signs quickly follow. But this might be a rare chance to buy a Shelby at Barrett-Jackson without getting into the 50k plus range. Very interested to see where this truck goes money wise. Big money or not, its one cool looking truck!

1939 Pontiac Sedan Patrol Car
Lot Number 850

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
patrolcar
Old Highway Patrol cars are cool, especially one this old!

1973 Plymouth ‘Cuda
Lot Number 824

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
cuda
E-body Mopar’s have a special place in my heart. This 73 is an awesome example of one, this thing is built to drive. Being a 73 you could have a lot of fun in it and not worry about messing up the value of the more collectible 70-71 cars.

2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 KR
Lot Number 754

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
kr
I’m curious to see what kind of money this car brings it respect to Mr. Shelby no longer being with us, but with this car being a later Shelby offering as apposed to some of the earlier Shelby’s.

1973 Chevrolet Corvette
Lot Number 776

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
73vette
This would be an awesome car to have. C3 styling, C5 power. Restomod’s are hot especially in the Vette world. But I’m curious how this being one of the less popular years in a ’73 does going across the block.

1932 Ford Model A Truck
Lot Number 758

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
32ford
I am in love with this truck. Classic look, but with some classic hot rodding touches. A 406 Buick Nailhead with blower, this thing is just too cool.

1956 GMC Suburban Pick Up
Lot Number 756

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
gmc
We talked about this brother to this truck, the Cameo earlier in the week but now we are gonna talk about the rare one of the two siblings, the GMC Suburban Pick Up. 1 of 250 built in 1956. This one is sure to bring a nice price tag.

1964 Chevrolet Biscayne
Lot Number 755

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO

She’s real fine my 409! Radio delete, 4:11 posi, 4-speed, this one was ordered to run!

1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cale Yarborough NASCAR Race Car
Lot Number 707

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
11
Cale Yarborough, Banjo Matthews, Junior Johnson, this is every NASCAR collectors dream! This car has a lot of neat history behind it, its is a museum piece for sure!

That is all for today!
