Check out Scott Gulbranson's g69 Camaro!!!

I could go on and on about this car. Right now, this is one of my most favorite 1969 Camaro g-Machines! I have know Scott for a few years now as well as been a member of his g-Machine community for a long time. Scott has put a lot of time and money (like most of us car guys) into his killer 1969 Camaro. The car has only been completed now for about a month or so and has already been invited to show it in both the Nitto booth and the Mothers booth on the 2008 Hot Rod Power tour. It would take days to type about all the workmanship and the details that went into his Camaro so to really see an in-depth look at this car click on this link http://www.lateral-g.net/g69/

Pure Vision 1969 Dodge Charger 515 GTB!!!

This is a rendering I had done according to Steve's specifications and reference purely for media usage. Once again, Steve Strope and the gang at Pure Vision Design develop yet annother innovative "machine" with tons of style and details. When I look at one of Steve's killer show cars in person, I find something new everytime I come to look at it.

I haven't seen the issue yet, but the story on this car and the rendering made the latest issue of Hot Rod Magazine. Make sure to pick up a copy and check it out or click the link below.

G5 Challenger Designs make cover...twice!

The G5 Challenger renderings have made the cover of a Mopar magazine twice this year so far. As a designer, getting your work on the cover of any magazine is exciting and very rewarding. Chris Wilkins of Group 5 Ltd. and I have worked on a couple of SEMA projects together and as always he has pulled out all the stops in promoting the new G5 Challenger project including pulling in Sam Posey into the mix.

The G5 Sam Posey Edition Challenger is grabbing a LOT of attention from Mopar fans, and the Media. Street car conversions are available to order if you wanna be like Sam Posey in a #77 Sublime Green Chally eatin' up the tarmac - no problem.

Other plans for the G5 program include a G5/S base model which consists mostly of cosmetics and minimal tuning you can bump up to a G5/SC which includes a Vortech supercharger, more upgrades, and further tuning. If you wanna be the big dog on the block and put a Viper into the weeds, the G5/R is for you! The sky is the limit with this Streetfighter from twin turbos to 426 Hemi race engines, mini tubs, lightweight carbon fiber, and MORE!
To top this off, Group 5 Ltd. is developing a dealership program so you can order a G5 Challenger to your specifications from your local Dodge dealer. Make sure to check out http://www.g5challenger.com/ website out for more info or call 480-610-1840.

The MIDNITE OCTANE blog is up!

This is my first blog, so it will be a learning experience for me and I will try to update it and improve it as I go. I have created this blog to coincide with my web page midniteoctane.com. On this blog, I would like to post up thoughts and ideas about the hot rods, g-Machines, and even what it takes to execute a good design or theme for them. Many times I have ideas that i'd like to share with other enthusiasts and I think this may be a good way to do it.
