While on location at the Hennessey Performance Engineering facility in Sealy, TX, for the event known as TX2K, the weather simply wouldn’t cooperate, so we were forced to pack up and entertain ourselves elsewhere. With our britches drenched, the #TeamRevv gear stashed in the transport and our sights set on the streets of Houston, Revvolution president Ryan Randels decided we had nothing else to lose and struck up a quick conversation with TX2K organizer, Peter Blach. Within a few moments, Peter worked his power of persuasion and convinced John Hennessey, the owner of the American tuning powerhouse, to grant us a brief thirty minutes with his latest creation.
You may remember our preview of the Ring Brothers "Recoil" 1966 Chevelle from late October. Well, we spotted it on the SEMA floor this week, and to say that Ring Brothers brought the heat is an understatement.
We filmed this leviathan, the mysterious, almost biblical in size machine, before it headed off to compete in the 2014 Drag Week. We saw the Nova’s first shakedown at the KBPI Car Show a few weekends ago. Once we saw it, we knew we had to shoot it.
Mark McCallon of RMCR gives Team Revvolution the opportunity to check out this insane 2011 Chevy Camaro SS RS with over 1,000 horsepower.
We all get itches from time to time. Some are just a burning desire for something more in life. Others should be checked out by a trained medical professional. But we digress. While many Lamborghinis come packed with horsepower and racing prowess, there are often times when no amount of satisfaction can be attained by a car enthusiast from just a stock car. It is a carryover from the weekend wrenchers and race car drivers from a time when engines and transmissions could be easily swapped, percolating some of the best sleeper machines to date.
