We’ve got some favorites from SEMA and this is definitely one of em. The Mach 40 started life as a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 that underwent one hell of a transformation by Oregon-based Eckert’s Rod and Custom. They poured thousands of man-hours into it, reworking every contour so as to create a stunning mash-up of a GT40 and a Mach 1. The heart of the Mach 40 is its midengine conversion; it features an E85-swilling, Whipple-blown powertrain from a 2006 Ford GT mounted behind the front seats that kicks out some 850 horsepower. #sema #mach40 #mustang #gt40 #mach1 #tbt #throwbackthursday #edmundsinc #askthecarpeople

One of the best things about SEMA is the chance of finding a gem like this car buried in a corner somewhere. This immaculate Corolla was originally a genuine U.S.-spec car from 1973, but owner Patrick Ng spent two years converting it to a JDM-spec showcar complete with an engine swap to the twincam version of the 1.6-liter inline-4. It’s one of our top ten cars from this years show. #tbt #throwbackthursday #sema #edmundsinc #askthecarpeople #corolla #toyota #jdm #dohc

The modified 1967 Ford Mustang GT500 — better known as “Eleanor” — from Gone in 60 Seconds will cross the auction block in May. This is one of several cars made for the movie, but auction house Mecum describes this as the “hero” car driven by actor Nicholas Cage during filming and “used in movie close-ups, posters and promotional materials.” The auction house did not provide an estimate on what Eleanor is expected to fetch. How much would you pay for the original? #musclecarmonday #eleanor #shelby #gt500 #ford #mustang #edmundsinc #askthecarpeople
