LUCKY LUKE
'72 CHEVELLE
Luke Volkmann
Denver, CO

After Luke landed his Chevelle in a ditch at 55 mph from a botched wheel replacement (by a friend), he wanted to turn his luck around and start fresh. All the bodywork was redone and sprayed with a thick coat of PPG Gunmetal Gray. To get the big-body Chevelle moving, he dropped in a 406 small-block, which pulls fuel from a Holley 750-cfm double-pumper on top of a Street Dominator intake and Dart cylinder heads. Hooker headers and Flowmaster piping help expel the fumes, while the Turbo 350 transmission and 3.55:1 gears make cruises a cinch.

Z06 EATER
'69 CORVAIR
Mike Meyers,br>Wood River, IL

This unique Corvair lost its original six-banger and was replaced with the heart of a '98 LS1 with a 4L60E transmission. Mike has owned the car since he was 14 years old and has logged well over 7,000 miles on it since its completion. 4.10:1 gears and a 12-bolt rearend propel Mike to an amazing 11.82 at 114.5 mph in the quarter-mile, but still manages to get 16 mpg on the highway.
