2014 Cheap Truck Challenge! 1993 Chevrolet S10 vs 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 1975 International [Dirt Every Day Episode 32]

What happens when you take three low buck trucks driven by cheap truck drivers on an off road shoot out? You get Cheap Truck Challenge.

Put on by Petersen’s 4Wheel and Offroad Magazine, Cheap Truck Challenge is the annual low buck truck competition where Fred and his pals must buy and build a 4x4 for under $4000.

On this Dirt Every Day Fred finally takes his Chevy S-10 to Reno, Nevada for a battle of the budget beater rigs!

Cheap Truck Challenge Build with a ‘93 Chevrolet S10! [Dirt Every Day Episode 31]

On this episode of Dirt Every Day, Fred Williams tracks down a ’93 Chevrolet S10 for this year’s Cheap Truck Challenge put on by Petersen’s 4Wheel and Offroad Magazine.

For those who don’t know, Cheap Truck Challenge is a competition based on keeping a build under-budget with around $2000 for buying and $2000 for building a vehicle while surviving a series of challenges. With the S10 bought, Fred now has to figure out what to upgrade in order to keep competitive and within his budget.

After seeing how capable his cheap truck is in the dirt, Fred then heads to the shop to see what inexpensive modifications he can make to his Chevy!

1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427 vs 1968 Porsche 911L! [Head 2 Head Episode 57]

On this special episode of Head 2 Head we jump in the way-back machine.

The 1960’s were the defining decade of the modern era. From the Cuban Missile Crisis, to the assassinations of JFK, RFK and MLK, to the hippie counter culture, to a man standing on the moon, few ten-year spans in history have seen as much tumult. Fewer still have seen as many awesome cars.

On this episode we look at two of the most important cars from the 1960’s: a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427 Tri-Power and a 1968 Porsche 911L.

The Corvette is all sound and fury, with a monster motor that still feels quick today and a soundtrack to die for. The 911, by way of contrast, is the more nimble driver-focused sports car solution, with steering feel that modern cars can only dream of. But one of these two is better than the other.

Watch to find out which!

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 vs. 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition! [Head 2 Head Episode 52]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman travels to Barber Motorsports Park for a head to head matchup with the brand new Chevy Camaro Z/28 and a well known heavyweight, the Nissan GT-R.

But not just any GT-R, the 2014 Track Edition which packs a 545 hp twin-turbo V-6, a 6-speed dual clutch transmission, sticky Dunlop tires and AWD traction into a car without rear seats.

The Z/28, by way of contrast, features a massive 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8, a 6-speed manual transmission, and tail-out RWD. While it does still have rear seats, nearly every other non-essential component has been removed. Moreover, the Z28’s tires might be even stickier! The front ones, enormous 305-sections, are certainly the widest tires ever bolted to a production car.

Both cars are phenomenal, and both cars make rational men scream, “Gimme!” But only one can come out on top. Watch and find out!

2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta vs 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 vs 2013 Porsche 911 C4S! [Head 2 Head Episode 42]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Carlos Lago and Randy Pobst restage our annual Best Driver’s Car competition with this year’s winning Porsche 911 Carrera 4S plus two contenders that missed the initial dance, the all-new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the explosive, exotic Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.

The Ferrari is the most powerful car we’ve ever taken around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with its ferocious 6.3-liter 731 horsepower V-12.

The Corvette comes packing the latest version of GM’s venerable small block, a 6.2-liter cam-in-block V-8 that kicks out 460 hp and 465 pound-feet of torque.

The Porsche and its relatively tiny 3.8-liter flat-6 might seem out gunned, but remember that for the last two years the 911 has beaten back every BDC challenger we’ve thrown at it.

Does the Corvette have what it takes to dethrone the 911? Does the wailing Ferrari? Watch and find out!

Vossen 2014 Chevrolet Impala

Any car will look better, even one that didn’t look so hot in the first place…

Thankfully, Chevrolet have done a great job of styling (and engineering) the Impala and if the extent of the modifications is not excessive, it wears them well. This Impala is riding on Vossen wheels (VVSCV3 and VVSCV4), that are of a simple and elegant design.
