An update on Xtreme 4×4’s Toxic Truggy

It's been a few years since the payoff of Xtreme 4x4's Toxic Truggy, and since then, we've had several fans ask what's happened to the project.

It’s been a few years since the payoff of Xtreme 4×4’s Toxic Truggy, and since then, we’ve had several fans ask what’s happened to the project.

First off, let’s get one thing clear — it HAS NOT been crushed. In fact, we would NEVER do that to ANY of our projects. (Now if anyone ever asks you that again, just refer back to this blog post.)

So, what happened to it? Well, after catching up with Ian earlier today, the production crew took a few quick shots of the modded S10.

As you can see in the photos below, we’ve kept it in the garage with some of our other Xtreme projects here at PowerBlock. Obviously, it hasn’t been crushed, though it did take a good hit from a tree during an off-road incident.

Oh, and Ian said he hasn’t decided what to do with the project just yet, so stay tuned …

Take a look at the video above. After shooting the payoff show, Ian had some more fun on the trail, but he didn’t realize the damage he had done after hitting a tree. This amateur video captures his reaction. Check it out!

Thanks for watching, PowerBlock fans!

Honda City modified with fifth-gen Camaro front end

Honda City modified with fifth-gen Camaro front end

This photo circulating around the internet shows the front end of a Camaro sporting a Honda emblem. The modded car’s concept is a mix between a Honda City, a model sold in Asian markets, and a fifth-gen Camaro. No details about official specs have been released, but many of you would probably call this automotive blasphemy.

500 HP Camaro SS on PowerBlock!

It’s a Corvette disguised as a Camaro! This weekend on PowerBlock Courtney is joined by custom car builder John Wargo and his awesome 1968 Pro Touring Camaro SS. John is no stranger to The Block, and this is another wild build from John and his team at The Custom Shop in Flanagan, IL. They’re famous for touring cars and Corvettes, and John decided to marry them together in this build. It’s basically a 4-seat Camaro that drives and handles like a 2-seat Corvette! It’s got an LS-1 motor with a D-1-SC ProCharger that makes about 500 horsepower that stops with ZR-1 brakes and ZO-6 Wheels and exhales through a Magnaflow exhaust. The interior is Vette inspired too with C-4 seats; four of them, with a Mid-America stitched three-tone leather package. The paint color is Prospray “Pearl White” with “Speed Orange” stripes.

Check it out on PowerBlock June 15th and 16th. For more visit CustomShop.org
