1966 Chevelle Malibu

This summer my younger brother and I went to Rhode Island to visit our older brother and check out the custom hot rod he just finished building. This is one sweet ride. Check out the video where he smokes me in my Mazda RX-8. I’m not mad he is pushing 711 rwhp and 730 lb-ft of torque.

In addition to shooting the video I also took some photos, some of which were featured in the January 2014 edition of Popular Hot Rodding magazine. He’s gotten a lot of coverage on the car, it has won several contests and been in several magazines now. Check out the photos I took below, or scroll down for other links and specs on the car.
