“I love owning a car that is an oddity,” Koons said. “Part car, part truck, not really either. I’d love to have been in the meeting when they were coming up with this idea. The El Camino has a 200 cubic inch V-6 engine that only gets about 100 horsepower, so it’s not a very […]

“It’s almost time for the Stingray to get its cover taken off, come out of the garage and start cruising all the local car cruises and car shows,” Barrows said. “The only thing I’ve really done with the car is have the exterior repainted. When it is all shiny it looks like a masterpiece.” The […]

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Raptor as the car of the week, so I figured I’d send mine in,” Yanchak said. “It is very powerful, 6.2 liter V8 engine. Not very good on gas, but then that’s not the reason I bought it.” “The Raptor also gets about 410 horsepower and 434 lb-ft […]
