1969 Nova - Yenko/SC 427 Tribute

For fans of classic Chevy vehicles, the name Yenko is a real attention-getter. The first-gen Yenko/SC Camaro was a true high-performance icon of the late '60s, and its legacy lives on to this day through modern cars such as the 1,000-horsepower 2018 Yenko/SC Stage II Camaro. But the Yenko name was also applied to other Chevrolet vehicles, including the Corvair, Chevelle, and Nova.

1972 Plymouth Scamp - Restored A-Body

Scamp is a term for a mischevious person who goes against the grain; a rascal, rogue, or scalawag. However, a scamp isn't a serious outlaw, instead opting to toe the line in a likeable way. This is an apt description for the sporty two-door hardtop seen here.

1970 Chevy Blazer - Open-Air Interior

2000 SLP Firehawk - Bird of Prey

The name Firebird implies an avian creature with mythical capabilities, and the name Firehawk takes that bird's capabilities to the next level. A hawk doesn't just glide effortlessly through the air, it actively hunts down its prey. With this in mind, Firehawk is a fitting name for a special line of Pontiac vehicles that took the Firebird to a higher level of performance.

1972 Dodge Demon - Fun in the Sun

The name "Demon" has received substantial interest the last few years as a result of the 2018 SRT Demon, a heavily-modified Dodge Challenger that can run the quarter mile in an astonishing 9.6 seconds. But the origin of this MOPAR car name can be traced back to 1971, when it was released as a sporty fastback version of the Dodge Dart.

1971 Chevy Nova - 350 Resto-Mod

The third-generation 1968-74 Chevy Nova is an extremely versatile platform. Many of these Nova models, especially the inline-6 cars and four-door sedans, were used as utilitarian family vehicles. However, the '68-74 Nova also became popular among drag racers and hot-rodders due to the potential of its small-block V8, and this potential remains to this day.

1963 Plymouth Savoy - Daily-Driven B-Body

When you think of the Mopar B-body, you might picture any number of classics: the Coronet, Charger, Satellite, Road Runner, or even the winged Daytona and Superbird. However, the first vehicle that came to mind probably wouldn't be a Plymouth Savoy. This Mopar might get a little less attention than the more common B-body cars, but it's absolutely cool in its own right.
