Pontiac Firebird Convertible – 7th Avenue, NYC

August 29th, 2012 by Aaron

Spotted this luscious, ultra clean gen 1 (’67 – ’69) Firebird drop top sitting pretty on 7th Avenue South. Assuming the hood ornamentation and functional scoops are of the real deal variety, this baby is sporting the 6.6L monster mill from the GTO with 325 HP and the optional Ram Air induction system (functional hood scoops, higher flow heads with stronger valve springs, and a different camshaft). Obviously this owner enjoys the best in life when it comes to classic vehicles as this is one of the more collectable Firebirds you can get.

Muscle Car Trifecta – Harriman State Park, New York

March 6th, 2010 by Stu

I was going through my files and stumbled onto these amazing pictures taken during a muscle car comparo I wrote for the Summer 2009 issue of Men’s Fitness. The photo editor decided against using these images, instead opting for stock photography to accompany the review. He fed me some line about the gloomy weather not being sunny enough. Does anyone know what he was thinking? We all know that wet muscle cars look better than dry muscle cars any day of the week. They have more attitude. And the grey skies add a menacing effect to the trio’s already aggressive styling. I hope you enjoy them.

Boss Mustangs – 11th Ave & 28th Street, NYC

January 22nd, 2010 by Stu

Say hello to rare and even rarer. The celebrated Boss Mustang variants, 302 (left) and 429 (right), were spotted in front of posh Manhattan Motor Cars on 11th Ave by loyal Man on the Move reader and contributing photographer Dave Pinter. Dave has stumbled onto some pretty cool stuff before but these Boss twins are definitely up there. Hell, Ford only built 1,358 examples of the 429, making it among the rarest and most sought after Mustangs on the planet. Just to give you an idea of the relative worth I am referring to, a pair just like this went for $530K in a 2007 Scottsdale auction. I called over to the dealership to verify that we weren’t looking at reproductions and they assured me the cars are completely original and available for purchase. Anyone care to invest in some American muscle?

Chevy Camaro Z28 Type LT – Holt Ave, Los Angeles

January 5th, 2010 by Nick

CAMARO Z28 TYPE LT - HOLT AVE, LAThe dented rear fender from prom night ’77. The cigarette burn from a drunken night at the disco on new years ’80. The scratch down the passenger door from shopping kart bowling on a warm night in ’83. The stories these survivors tell through their scars and battle wounds get silenced during a restoration, and the soft whispers of debauchery fall on deaf ears under a glossy coat of candy.

1965 Ford Mustang GT Convertible – West Broadway, NYC

October 20th, 2009 by Ian

Mustang1

The owner of this cherry red ‘Stang couldn’t have chosen a better parking space considering the high end neighborhood and for sale sign in the windshield. In fact, this perennial pony car is so perfect in every way that it seems entirely plausible the restoration shop unloaded it directly from the flatbed in front of Cipriani’s posh West Broadway location upon completion. We are not sure if there were any takers but the restaurant’s deep pocketed clientele cast more than a few stares at the gussied up American icon as they enjoyed one of the precious few days left for outdoor dining.
