Ford GT designer takes his creation to artful zenith

Remember this chromed Buick Regal? At the time of publication, we said there were some cars that looked better in chrome than others, and this is what we had in mind.

Jesse James crashes his Hennessey GT1000 in Texas

Before we knew about his escapades with the ladies, we knew of Jesse James because of his rather extreme talents in the custom fabrication arena. The work he has done with West Coast Choppers and Monster Garage is the stuff of legends. When a hardcore excitement junkie like James wants a sports …


Kia GT Concept puts a familiar face on a rear-wheel-drive platform
