We like Lokar’s billet aluminum throttle pedal assembly for classic 1965-70 Mustangs. It looks fabulous and functions very well because it completely replaces your Mustang’s factory-installed throttle linkage with crisp cable function and light throttle effort.

Leather might not have been in the budget price when it came to purchasing your new vehicle. Luckily, companies like Katzkin make it easy to install an OEM-quality leather interior package into a late-model vehicle.

Our perennial project Mopar, “Killer Kong” is coming together pretty nicely now that we’ve gathered some of the coolest stuff the aftermarket offers to put together a stock-but-not interior package that is as clean and simple as it is beautiful to look at.

Today’s plastics and rubber is embedded with new age polymers that resist aging, cracking and discoloring far longer than those from over 40 years ago. These polymers also improve elasticity in softer contact points – like body bumpers and weatherstripping – and will maintain that pliability over the years.

In the cabin, the T7 Copper B-Body was optioned with the additional interior light package, center [...]

With our subframe and rack and pinion box in place, we just needed to finish up the rest of the steering system before we could check this part of our project off the to-do list. And so we called upon our good friends at Flaming River to supply us with some of their industry-renowned components for our buildup.

Along with the OEM airbag module, the Revolution wheel also retains all the factory switchgear, so in addition to keeping the factory safety device, you won’t lose any convenience either. What you end up with is a steering wheel that looks and feels completely different without any compromises in functionality.

Our Project “MaxStreet” 1966 Chevy II has been nearly eight months in the making here in the powerTV garage, and to say that we’re itching to get the old girl out and stretch her legs a little would be an understatement. With our suspension modernization project nearly complete, we’re close to taking that step.

Automotive gauges have a history as long as the automobile itself, with tachometers (adapted from instruments used on steam locomotives and industrial machines) first appearing on dashboards in 1903.

They have been making performance racing instruments for automotive, marine, and motorcycle applications since 1957, and they’ve become synonymous with aftermarket gauges thanks to their broad range of products and applications.
