Published

on

Cooper Spirits Company and Hochstadters are bringing the whiskey to the people in their Slow & Low Rock and Rye “Whiskey Delivery Van.” With a strong Woodstock vibe to it, the 1978 Chevy G20 has been completely decked out as a rolling cocktail lounge. The van has a custom made walnut bar with leather bench seating for you to enjoy a glass of whiskey poured directly from the keg of Slow & Low on the bar.

Orange tufted panelling finishes out the interior of the van, while a booming sound system will bring in the party. The van will be driven by noted photographer Asher Moss, who will also chronicle the road trip. His photos will be displayed on @drinkslowandlow.

“Known for creating new classics and reviving brands from a bygone era, The Cooper Spirits Company is excited to be embarking on this experiential campaign that supports and honours American artistry,” stated Robyn Greene, SVP of Marketing & Innovation for The Cooper Spirits Company.

“An updated classic like the ’78 G20 is the perfect vehicle to feature exhibits that share the vintage and handcrafted sensibilities of Slow & Low.” Those exhibitions will include artwork from Oil&Ink.

The tour will include cities and towns across the US, including Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, Denver, Boston, Jersey City, West Palm Beach, New Orleans, Atlanta, Nashville, and Venice. As for Slow & Low, it’s a straight rye inspired by pre-Prohibition recipes, and can be enjoyed neat or over ice.

Land Serwis Land Rover Defender Series I SUV

Published

When official production of the Land Rover Defender ended in January 16, 2016, fans had to resort to finding a used version if they wanted one of the classic SUVs. Fortunately, Poland-based Land Serwis is offering the Defender just as it was meant to be originally.

As one of the companies that can build an original Series-model Defender from scratch, Land Serwis is perfectly positioned to give fans what they are clamouring for. Land Serwis has in-house plans and tooling to create the Defenders, and because it is all in-house, they can build to a customer’s preferences.

Everything from changes in the chassis construction to reinforcements, handles, and more is on the table. Want a different engine? Land Serwis can customise the engine mounts onto the frame before they are laser cut. You can even explore more add-ons like additional tanks, a stronger suspension, or a mechanical winch.

Land Serwis can work with 90, 110, and 130 wheelbases, and the company can even recreate a Defender if you have the original identification and Defender license plates.

Land Serwis based their model on the original chassis, but updated it with a few modern parts, such as a stainless steel exhaust, a 2-inch lift kit, and custom brakes. Many other parts stayed true to the original, or were totally refurbished, such as the engine, fuel system, drive shafts, and axles.

There’s no need to despair if you weren’t able to pick up a Defender before production ended. Land Serwis has you covered.

Hinchliff’s 1973 Ford Mustang Trans Am Coupe is Ready for a Comeback

Published

on

By

The golden age of Trans-Am racing ran from 1968 to 1972. During that time Penske’s Camaros, Mark Donhue’s AMC Javelin, and Parnelli Jones’ Boss 302 Mustang duked it out on tracks that ranged from street and airport circuits to temporary road courses and permanent race tracks. Things changed in 1973, and the cars became more modified. In 1980, another change hit, and the cars became what has become known as “silhouette series”—nothing more than tube-frame cars that somewhat resembled the originals.

When Kar Kraft was shut down, Ford ended its support for factory racing. Anything remaining was sold off. At that same time, two “body-in-white” cars were delivered to Ford. Warren Tope of Tope racing quickly assembled one and put it out on the track. The other took a bit more time, but Ed Hinchliff of Hinchliff Racing put the car together using factory parts and Kar Kraft blueprints. Chassis engineers Lee Dykstra and Mitch Marchi helped Hinchliff in the car’s construction.

The team outfitted the car with Girling four-piston aluminium brakes with large rotors, a factory Kar Kraft full floater rear axle with locker, a Ram Air intake system with a Holly intake manifold, and a Jones tachometer. The car was registered with the SCCA throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s.

With a little TLC, this Trans Am Mustang could make use of its wide track, stiff chassis, and upgraded powertrain to compete in vintage racing today.

SVE Revives GMC’s Legendary 455HP Syclone Performance Pickup Truck

Published

on

By

Back in 1991 GMC showed the world what the future of performance trucks could be by cramming a turbocharged six-cylinder into a two-door Sonoma. They added a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system and marketed the concoction as the Syclone. Special Vehicle Engineering (SVE) is reviving the Syclone, and given that SVE is best known for building 1,000 horsepower Yenko Camaros and Corvettes, this truck promises to be just as revolutionary.

Technically, the truck’s not a Syclone, though GMC did give it’s blessing for SVE to use the name. The new Syclone starts out as a 2019 GMC Canyon extended cab. SVE adds in a 3.6-litre V6 that comes with either rear- or all-wheel drive. The supercharged version of the engine pumps up the output from the original 308 horsepower to 455 horsepower, with 425 lb-ft of torque.

You’re going to need better brakes with that much additional power, so SVE geared up the truck with upgraded brakes, along with a sport suspension that leaves the Syclone sitting two inches lower in the front and 5 in the back. SVE also added in a rear anti-roll bar and a dual cat-back sports exhaust.

A build like this doesn’t come cheap. In addition to the USD$35,000 sticker price for the Canyon, you’ll have to put down an additional USD$39,995 with a required USD$5,000 deposit.
