The UK was treated to many muscle and sports car treats from the upcoming Transformers movie The Last Knight recently, according to the Daily Mail news website.

The location was Newcastle, UK where Mark Wahlberg and co. treated the area to some of the latest vehicle additions from the Transformers movie.
The obvious Bumblebee Camaro is in there, along with a Corvette ZO6 and a Lamborghini Centenario and a Mercedes-AMG GT R.

‘It was crazy to see all of these incredible cars like Lamborghinis and Corvettes whizzing around Newcastle,’ said one fan.
‘I’ve never seen anything like it. It looked like a war zone with soldiers and jeeps and a high speed chase.’

An Unbelievable Snow plough 57 Chevrolet

By Mark Weisseg In parts of the west such as the Dakotas they are being hammered with blizzard type snows. Schools and stores are closed and the big dig out continues. When these events happen everyone that can man a shovel does so. Snow blowers, snow throwers and hard work gets the roads and driveways passable again. As bad as it is for some, there is a lot of money to be made plowing snow. When I saw this picture of a ’57 Chevy body on top of a four wheel drive truck I smiled. Hey, this old Chevy is plowing snow. Yes, what every sound American should do. Find a car that is world renowned and make a plow truck out of it. Forget taking the body and putting back on the real frame and making it a very pricey classic. That’s silly. This guy is a genius. Next, I hope he finds a rare 59 Caddy convertible and does the same thing…….. You see, every day another Einstein is born. Some Einsteins never find there calling. They land up being land Barron’s or stupid Doctors or lawyers. But other Ei

2016 Ford Mustang GT RHD Info. Graphic

As we mentioned in a previous article, the right hand drive version of the Mustang is now being sold on the Indian continent. The reasons for making a right-hand drive and hitting those markets of the world is obvious. So, to help see exactly what you get with this RHD model, the Max about website have made a cool info graphic for the car as you see below. RHD Mustang Info. Displacement – 4951 cc Maximum Power – 401 PS @ 6500 rpm Maximum Torque – 515 NM @ 4250 rpm Gearbox – 6-Speed Automatic Top Speed (KMPH) – 250 kmph Ground Clearance – 137 mm Boot Space – 383 litres Fuel Tank Capacity – 60.9 litres We wonder now if the other muscle car makers will follow suit and start producing vehicles in right-hand drive.

The Mustang Beats The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro sales

As we’ve reported recently, the 2016 Mustang is now selling across the globe in right-hand drive and introducing everybody to the muscle car world. This could have been a big gamble for Ford, but it seems to have paid off as sales for the 2016 Mustang are doing better than ever. However, Dodge and Chevrolet, especially the Mustang’s main rival, the Camaro, are staying on home territory and sales don’t seem to be anywhere near as good. Sales for the Chevrolet Camaro have dropped in the US by 42.3%, shifting 4969 units, a drop of 13.5% compared to this time last year. As the world grows to a more globally integrated arena, it makes sense to start pushing muscle cars in other territories. The Mustang, although traditionally should be left hand drive, is doing very well in Europe, Australia and recently India in the RHD format. they are familiar with the Ford brand, so the Mustang brings a bit of exotic presence to the rest of the Ford lineup. Chevrolet have a presence with their other veh
