Historic vehicle association against electric drivetrain conversions

The global body representing historic car clubs has come out against the growing trend of fitting electric drivetrains to classic cars. FIVA (Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens, or International Federation for Historic Vehicles) stated it "cannot promote, to owners or regulators, the use of modern EV components... to replace a historic vehicle’s powertrain" as it is an "organisation dedicated to the preservation, protection and promotion of historic vehicles".

Dodge Super Charger concept launches 746kW Hellephant V8 engine

The Dodge Super Charger concept is a heavily modified and restored 1968 Dodge Charger coupe, and is the perfect vehicle to show off Fiat Chrysler's new 'Hellephant' V8 crate engine. Not only does it have a wider track with flared fibreglass wheel arch extensions, the concept car also has a 51mm longer wheelbase, significantly reducing the car's front overhangs.

Classic cars to tackle dementia on Father's Day

A fleet of classic cars will descend upon an aged care centre in Bankstown, New South Wales, this Father's Day, in an attempt to take residents for a trip down motoring memory lane. Among the cars on show is a 1962 Chevrolet Bel Air, along with a vintage Ford Falcon that previously belonged to one of the centre's residents. Both are being brought along by friends, as a way to connect with elderly enthusiasts who otherwise mightn't have been able to enjoy them.

Mercedes-Benz commissions new metal parts for 300SL Gullwing

Resto-modding is all the rage at the moment, with manufacturers digging out their classic blueprints and diving into the world of hand-beaten panels, all to serve the demands of a very wealthy few. We've seen new (old) Jaguars and Alfa Romeos recently, and now Mercedes-Benz is getting in on the act... well, sort of.
