Blacktop Rebels is the site you have been looking for to keep in touch with all the activities for your car passion. Some of the vehicles we treasure include:
Classic cars - These great cars are usually between 20 and 40 years old, and are generally maintained to the original design and specifications. In other words, they are basically original. They represent a time from the past when production cars were cool.
Muscle cars – Although many people believe that the true muscle cars came only from the sixties, there are many others that would argue that the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and even the 70’s had muscle cars. They all do agree, however, that large v-8 torque motors were definitely required. These cars can leap from a stop light in a tire squealing spectacle. There has been a resurgence of new cars in the muscle car arena including the Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger. Just remember, the more horsepower the better.
Street rods – Street rods are modernized cars from pre-1948. The rule here is to take an older vehicle and update some new cool stuff into it. Most have newer motors and drive trains, while others have $ thousands of dollars of high end paint, interiors, and modifications. When you think Street Rod, think creativity and high end looks.
Antique cars – Although antique might be applied to any old car, purists see the era of cars made from 1880 to 1916. They were the first "horseless carriages", and were powered by a gasoline, steam or electric engines. Like classic cars, these antique cars are kept near original.
Rat rods – Rat rods are where rust, junk parts and extreme creativity all come together. These unique vehicles generally come from the 1940’ to the early 1960’s. They generally use motors from the era (although swapped from any car), and have bias ply tires. After that, they are chopped, welded, and formed into a one of a kind vehicle. The only limitation for these vehicles is your own creativity. They are mostly made at home from inexpensive parts, are a real arm full to drive. Heaters and windows are often deleted, making a winter drive a freezing challenge.
Vintage cars – Vintage cars are generally thought to be made between 1919 and 1925 (some would argue 1930). Generally these are original vehicles, but some modifications are allowed.
Motorcycles – Two or three wheels of absolute fun. If you don’t know this one, you have lived in a Russian prison for too long.
