'33 Ford 3-Window • Mike Lyons • Tucson, AZ So why a '33 glass body? The bad boy image? The, "I'll look cool driving this 'cause I've always wanted one?" Mike Lyons says it's a little of all of the above. Plus, as a certified welder who performs material analysis and failure investigations for a living, we're betting that it's also about the challenge. You see, we only think it's difficult modifying muscle cars; with a fiberglass shell literally everything is custom fabbed custom from scratch. So far, Mike bent and fabbed up all the tubular bracing in the chassis, plus pretty much everything else on the car from the trans tunnel to the dash. To date he's got more money in it than he cares to think about, but those thoughts of driving the bad boy hot rod he's always wanted keep him heading out to the garage.

'79 Cadillac Coupe De Ville Bruce Jensen • Seattle, WA What if Cadillac had built something a little brawnier out of their luxo-cruisers? That's what Bruce Jensen pondered when setting out to turn his '79 Coupe De Ville into a '70s-style Caddy muscle machine. After finding an exceptionally clean car, Bruce upgraded the interior to bucket seats and a console, and underhood he dropped in a burly 500ci V-8 with select speed parts to make it feel like a factory performance engine. It even has the rare A/C delete option, as a serious Caddy might have in '79.
