1 of 200 Commemorative Edition Corvette’s Is Up For Grabs

1 of 200 Commemorative Edition Corvette’s Is Up For Grabs A C1 inspired C5 Corvette is available having been built by Advanced Automotive Technologies Like most iconic models that continued into the late eighties and early nineties, the Corvette was dealing with middle age spread around its gut and the nations once favorite sports car was on the decline. When GM bosses sat down to plan the C5 Corvette, they were so unsure of its potential success that they planned a budget version. Complete with cloth seats and manual door mirrors, the goal was to open up the fifth generation Vette to a different market segment.

Now’s your chance to own one (or both!) of these iconic muscle cars!

This One Of Six Earnhardt Signature Camaros Is A Rare Find

This One Of Six Earnhardt Signature Camaros Is A Rare Find Only six Earnhardt Signature Z28 Camaros were built in 1994 and this one has just 13,000 miles F-body’s have a soft spot in the car community, they were GM’s last hurrah before killing two of the most revered names in muscle car history; the Firebird and the Camaro. They may not offer the tantalizing silhouettes of their forefathers, but what they do instead more than makes up for it. They still eat Mustangs for breakfast, like Pete Estes brief from the sixties, and they are particularly affordable still.

In 1971, Dodge was sitting amongst the kings of the muscle car movement, but production for this year was low, and the Challenger line was trimmed down considerably. If you wanted to buy a 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T in modern times, you’d be hard pressed to find examples like the two currently for sale through Volo Auto Museum.

While not being sold as a pair, you could definitely have a sweet Mopar muscle collection if you bought them together, or either individually. Both represent a rare find from the low production year, and both are painted in the highly desirable Plum Crazy Purple coat - which has become an iconic shade from the Mopar muscle car era.

Check Out This Incredibly Rare Macho Trans Am

Check Out This Incredibly Rare Macho Trans Am Have you ever heard of this Mecham build? In 1977, brothers Dennis and Kyle Mecham began giving the “Yenko” treatment to Trans Ams under the name DKM. The offspring of a Phoenix-area Pontiac dealer, they had access to brand new Trans Ams without issue. Boasting enough performance knowledge to reinstate the power lost due to growing emissions equipment on the factory cars, they began adding turbochargers and, by the next year, had evolved to completely rebuilding the powertrain.

The first example is a ground pounding R/T that’s powered by a 440 cubic inch, 400-horsepower engine, that’s backed by a five-speed manual transmission. This six-pack V8 remains to be one of the most sought after engine options available in 1971. The hardtop coupe represents one of only 4,630 R/T hardtops to hit the streets that year.

Only eclipsing the R/T coupe body style in rarity is the convertible body style, with only 2,165 convertibles sold in 1971. This example is equipped with a 340 cubic inch engine, backed by an automatic transmission. Like it’s coupe counterpart, it’s also outfitted with a shaker hood, twin-scoop R/T hood, and R/T side stripe package.

With around 165,000 classic Dodge Challengers sold during the muscle car era of 1970-1974, the model is a rare site on the road these days, so to find two in the same inventory is somewhat miraculous. To find them in this level of condition is also a rare find on the market in 2019.

Be An Automatic Hero In A 1971 Pontiac Trans Am.
Driving such a beast doesn’t get much easier. Old muscle cars are a blast to drive, but for some they’re also a chore. If you want to make the experience less labor-intensive, perhaps the best way is to find something with an automatic transmission. While that might sound downright blasphemous, this 1971 Pontiac Trans Am is cool enough to look past that and realize everyone deserves a shot at enjoying classic muscle. Thanks to a recent restoration, this Trans Am has been returned to its previous splendor. That means the white paint job looks great, even under close examination.
