1963 Corvette Sting Ray Coupe
Corvettes don't come cheap. The reason behind their legacy of lofty prices is their consistent embrace of the newest technology available in the automotive market. As one of the pioneers of fuel injection, the Corvette became one of the first ever production cars with horsepower that exceed cubic inches of engine displacement.
1963 Corvettes were the first of the C2 Second Generation Corvettes, and also the first year of the fastback coupe. The new design brought the first tapering rear deck, with a split rear window, only featured on the '63 model. In the front were hidden headlamps and decorative hood vents, giving the car a sleak appearance that would be carried on through its successors. The doors were cut into the roof, a design feature that made getting in and out much easier for such a low-to-the-ground sports car.
Looks weren't the only thing that made the Sting Ray special. Independent rear suspension, ball-race steering and a shorter wheelbase improved the handling of the Corvette from previous models. An available electronic ignition system used breakerless magnetic pulse-triggered technology. Combine all of that with an optional Rochester fuel injected engine making 360 hp and you've got yourself quite the machine.
In the performance industry, it's important to lead with new cutting edge engineering and technology. If you don't innovate, you could be left in the dust.
3 Letters, 2 Seats: Respect the AMX| 01/10/2013
Do you have respect for the AMC AMX? You probably should. This muscled-up mutant of a sports car could handle the curves and really move off the line. AMX stood for American Motors eXperimental, and we think American Motors Corporation made the right choice not to go with AME, it doesn't sound as cool. Something that does sound cool though, is a big 390 engine in a 2-seater that was stock rated for 420 hp in the '69 SS model. This was a machine that could hold it's own against the big 3 and was far more affordable than the Corvette.

How To Choose A Drag Race Ignition| 12/03/2018
Drag racers rely on exotic fuels and high cylinder pressures to make huge power. High compression ratios, nitrous oxide and high boost pressures paired with alcohol, methanol or nitro make lighting the air/fuel mixture in the cylinder difficult. The immense pressures inside the combustion chamber will literally blow the spark out. This is where an MSD ignition really shines. Its ability to fire the most powerful and fastest racecars on the planet is legendary. MSD ignition systems can be basic, or advanced enough to control one-tenth of a degree of timing for one-hundredth of a second in any cylinder using individual cylinder timing.
