Kiawah 2016 Highlights - 1974 DeTomaso Longchamp 15

Kiawah 2016 Highlights – 1974 DeTomaso Longchamp

Here is a seriously rare exotic that influenced virtually every American car in the 1980s: the DeTomaso Longchamp.  But here’s the key detail: this car is a 1974. The 80s Ford Mustang and even Chevy Caprice likely thought their inspiration was a secret thanks to the Longchamp’s non-imported status. But what about the Volvo 960 and even the Maserati Quattroporte of the 1980s?!  Shameless copies, and now we know the origin of the epoch-defining block styling. DeTomaso’s widebody, rear-drive GT coupe proportions fender details are still stunning in 2016.  As is the massive cabin width and great luxury throughout. Thankyou to …

1985 ROUSH Protofab Ford Mustang GTO – Animated Technical Illustrations

Technical Illustrator Roy Scorer is back with another detailed look below the skin of an iconic racecar! This time we’re looking at the 1985 ROUSH Protofab race team’s Mustang GTO.  This is really a classic silhouette racer with very little chassis similarity to the road cars.  But a similar shouty V8, fettled by some of Dearborn’s finest tuners, as was available to Fox-body 5.0 lovers! Here is a reference photo of this mean race prototype in real life to set the tone..  The let’s peel back those clothes! Check out Roy’s other work at his author link above or new website …

1987 Buick GNX by ASC McLaren – Detail Photo Flyaround Inside and Out

The GNX left a sweet mark on the brand and perhaps the car business in general.  It was the announcement of POWER and speed — rejoining mainstream car lines after more than a decade of downsizing, Cimmarons and K-cars. The heart and soul of the GNX is of course its McLaren-upgraded V6 engine. The 3.8-liter, intercooled turbo was a revolution at the time. Its output bested most V8s and its power delivery was the best part. Through the also-racier standard automatic transmission in the GNX, the giant lump of turbo torque made the most of its lag.
