1973 Laguna"I just had to make this car red. It's an homage to the Hawaiian Tropic sponsored cup car driven by Mel Tillis and Terry Bradshaw in the movie Cannonball Run, but that's where the similarities end. This car has a high-end Autobahn influence for going coast-to-coast fast and in style."
"I took the smooth front end to the next level by cleaning it up and opening a slot across the middle to feed the cooling system and made the rear match by flushing it all out and painting it body color. The grille is based on the factory unit, but is recessed three inches. It's opened up between the horizontal slats and filled with a coarse mesh and the round factory marker lights are replaced by bi-xenon driving lights. Up on the hood, I shaved off the raised center peak and gave it just a smooth crease like a late-model car. I then flanked it with billet bezels that act as stylish vents above the 427-inch small-block. The engine is backed up by a six-speed automatic shifted by a Twist Machine Paddle Shifter."
"Global West makes all the suspension equipment to make this big beast carve corners, and best of all, it's all bolt-on. On the corners are red six-piston Wilwood calipers clamping 14-inch rotors up front, and four-piston units with 13-inch rotors in the rear."
"Those wheels are the Rated-X design from my new brand; Rushforth Wheels, and are coated in what we call Smoked Titanium with satin-finished hoops in 19x10-inch in the front, and 20x12-inch out back."
