Revealing the '55 Chevy Bel-Air Convertible, 505HP Custom Cruiser at SEMA 2016

Lincolnshire, IL - October 28, 2016 - One of the most iconic period and drag racing stories of life in the 1960's was George Lucas' movie "American Graffiti", which stands out as one of those films that captures earlier times well remembered. One of the heroic moments in the film is the final drag race between a '32 Ford Deuce Coupe and a '55 Chevy Bel-Air Hard Top (driven by Harrison Ford's character).

Since its introduction to the marketplace, the 1955 second generation Tri-Five Bel-Air was advertised as the "Hot One" in GM's ad campaigns. BlackDog Speed Shop is a custom builder, racing and motorsports shop located in Lincolnshire, IL. For their 2016 SEMA project, the company found a Tri-Five in decent condition and then put the BlackDog Speed team to work.

Hotchkis Debuts 1968 Mustang

Hotchkis Sport Suspension is excited to announce their latest in-house project, the HP-427 1968 Mustang. This Ford project follows the success of the Hotchkis F-71 second gen Camaro and the E-Max Challenger builds to complete the Big-3 Muscle Car offerings.

The HP-427 is based on one of the most sought after Mustangs, the iconic 1968 Fastback. Of course this model was made even more celebrated due to its starring role in the movie Bullitt with Steve McQueen. Our build gives a nod of appreciation to one of the best car chase scenes of all time but more importantly, it will retain a real-world flavor.

A Formula Drift Champion’s Take on a Classic Japanese Muscle Car

AEM’s booth will be home to Chris Forsberg’s updated Datsun 280Z drift car

LAS VEGAS - When three-time Formula Drift Champion Chris Forsberg set out to build a Datsun S30 280Z for AEM’s booth at the 2016 SEMA show, we knew it would be a showstopper. Chris’ newest iteration of his RB25-powered 280Z began with an upgraded look thanks to a CarbonSignal G-Nose Body Kit. It also received a set of SSR Professor MS1 wheels in 16x9 and 17x10 supported by a set of Hankook tires in 225/50R16 and 255/40R17. Completing the look is a BRE-style rear wing out back. There will also be a new color for the Z that Sam’s Auto Land will be in charge of. Lighting up the night far better than the weak halogen lights it originally came with, the headlights will receive Dapper Lighting’s projector headlights and LED taillights.

Spectre Performance to Feature Wild 1955 Chevy Nomad in 2016 SEMA Show Booth

This ’55 Nomad will be a head turner under the lights of the Las Vegas Convention Center
LAS VEGAS - Over the past few years, Spectre Performance has featured some pretty slick builds in their SEMA booth and this year is no exception. Rumored to be a bit of a departure from past builds, this 1955 Chevy Nomad is anything but typical.

Built by Classic Car Studio, of St. Louis, Missouri, the tri-five started as little more than a rolling chassis with a rusted out body. But after nearly 2,000 hours of body work, it is much more than that now. Sitting on a sturdy Roadster Shop Revo chassis with a triangulated four-link, the Nomad sits perfectly on a set of Billet Specialties SLG 15 wheels: 18x8-inch in the front and 20x12-inch at the rear all wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tires; 255/40R18 and 335/35R20 respectively. While Wilwood Pro spindles, master cylinder, and 13-inch brakes (six-piston front, four-piston rear) give this heavyweight all the stopping power she’ll need.
