    • America's 5 Greatest Muscle Cars...Do You Agree?

      1970 Dodge Charger

      You know how it is when you're at a car show...you're shooting the bull with the boys when the discussion gets around to muscle cars. Everyone's got an opinion on what the top American muscle cars are, and each muscle car fan has his or her own "list".

      But I came across this list on the SenseTheCar.com blog, and to me it's hard to argue with the choices (as long as it's not listed in any particular order!).

      The cars are listed below. If you disagree, feel free to give us your list in the comments section below.

      Dodge Charger
      Immortalized forever as the "General Lee" in the TV show, "The Dukes of Hazzard".

      Pontiac GTO
      "Critics in its day pointed out the sluggish steering, sparse interior and unsteady brakes, but once the GTO hit a straight line, it blew its competition out of the water."

      Chevrolet Chevelle
      "...in 1970, Chevrolet released a bombshell with the Chevelle SS and its jaw-dropping 450-horsepower engine."

      Chevrolet Camaro
      "One of the longest-lived muscle car models, thanks to its persistent popularity."

      Ford Mustang
      "The most successful muscle car of all time...synonymous with the kind of raw power and thrills the world expects from a brilliant piece of American engineering."

    • Project GTohhhh myyy

      The one nice thing about us having a small store front here at the Eastwood headquarters, is that we have customers stop in with their newly finished projects quite often. We love when they come to show off all their hard work. Yesterday a long time customer (and frequent visitor to our retail store), Dan S.  swung by to show off his recently finished 1965 GTo. Dan has had this car about 10 years, and has spent some major time and energy building the car as well as tracking down some extremely hard to find parts, including many NOS (New Old stock for anyone not in the "know") badges, trim pieces and other assorted bits. I was lucky enough to get a chance to do a quick little photoshoot with it the car and chat about it with Dan. Days like these remind us why we do this little endeavor we call Eastwood! Below is the quick basic run-down of products used on the car and a few of my favorite shots I snapped. Hope everyone enjoys them as much as I do!
