Bad Asses from the Past and Present – Last of the Two High Horsepower Stingrays!

Corvette High Horsepower Stingrays

1967 L71 427/435 HP convertible • 2019 LT5 755 HP Convertible

The 1967 Corvette Stingray 427/435 has been the ultimate collector car for most of its 50 year history. To visit a Chevrolet dealer show room in late 1966 and 1967 must’ve been quite a treat. I always wondered what it must’ve been like to visit a dealership like Harry Mann  Chevrolet in Los Angeles with a whole line up of 1967 big block Corvettes. I believe today is no different and in the future people will ask the same question looking back on the 2019 ZR1 and the similarities between the two. The 435 hp 1967 was the high watermark of Corvette performance back in the day. It equates to the 755 horse power ZR1 that you’re able to buy today, of course if you are lucky enough to be able to get one.  Since the production is very limited and exclusive.

2016 Dodge Charger Hellcat

2016 Dodge Challenger Hellcat – Plum Crazy

The color is Plum Crazy, and plumb crazy is as good a way as any to describe the driving experience of the 2016 Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Normally, all you need to recognize Dodge’s over-the-top Hellcat editions are the distinct MoPar exhaust note, combined with the little Hellcat logo on each front fender. But Dodge produced a limited run of these Challengers painted in the iconic Plum Crazy, a color that made its debut in 1970.

What Mike likes about this car:
“Color is everything on cars of all makes. I’m sure you’ll agree that certain cars look better in some colors than others. This example is no different and what a statement it makes. Various shades of Orange have been back for awhile and brings back fond memories of Ontario Orange of the early 70’s!! Welcome back Pumpkin!!  Now go scare the beegeeous out of us!!”

2006 Z06 Corvette Orange
This beautiful example came to us from a local So. CA. collector and we were thrilled to get it! The brilliant Sunset Orange complements the ZO6 perfectly and it also happens to be the rarest color offered in ’06 with only 282 units built.
