APocalypSe Horse Project Build

mustang_project_summary_11_2014a-1Welcome to the APocalypSe Horse Project Build Page…..

You might not have realized it just yet, but there’s a revolution brewing. The stuccato pops of freshly struck blue torches in shops from coast to coast are growing ever more frequent. Tirehood obesity, nearly eradicated by a decade of dub wheels, 40-series tires, and an endless maze of strategically placed traffic cones is thankfully—mercifully—magnificently—again on the rise.

Grab your shortened axles and punch them with clenched fist defiantly into the sky, kids. Pro street is cool again…not that it ever wasn’t! I mean, who wouldn’t want to be touring around loud and proud in a street version of a Pro Stock or Pro Mod? The look, the sound and all that power, it really is that cool!

The idea to build a late model bodied car with all the classic Pro Street styling cues was birthed during the writing of RPM Magazine photojournalist Toby Brooks’ newest book, Sensory Overload: Cool Builders, Hot Cars, and Wild Times at the Street Machine Nationals. Talking about the style and reminiscing about the past with the legendary builders who defined it for over a decade made us nix going nostalgic and begin to silently wonder: Detroit has cranked out a number of very cool cars since the trend seemingly took its last breath in the late ’90s. How cool would it be to build a modern interpretation of the iconic pro street style?

We introduce you to the aPocalypSe Horse…the Second Coming of Pro Street!
