Rampage

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

Keith Kaucher’s “Rampage” Concept Car an open wheel mid engined Sport Rod. Keith envisions this car powered by a GM 572 Ramjet backed by a C6 Corvette trans-axle. This car has a targeted weight of 1900 lbs, with 700 plus horsepower from the venerable Chevy big block would make for a serious trill ride to say the least. This is one of those concepts that you can imagine all the head turns you would get cruising down the boulevard with the throaty rumble bellowing from the exhaust, without a doubt a concept that needs to be built.

Vote for Kaucher’s ’70 Dodge Challenger in the 2012 Good Guys Give Away Car Design Contest

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

With some of the world’s most talented designers and illustrators being members of the hot rodding family, Goodguys has decided to get the industry’s finest artists, Goodguys members and event participants involved in the 2012 Grand Prize Giveaway Car!

The challenge? Submit a colored rendering and theme of the 2012 giveaway car; a 70′ – 72′ Dodge Challenger!

Kaucher Kustoms has submitted our design, and need your help and your vote! If you like my car better then the others, please visit 2012 Good Guys Give Away Car voting website and the take a minute and vote for it.

The Yellow Jacket is based of a concept car that Dodge built in 1970 the car was introduced as a potential Corvette fighter. I saw the original car in 1970 when I attended the Greater Los Angeles Car Show with my dad in 1970, it was the coolest car I saw there, and I never forgot it.

When I started on my concept for Good Guys I used it as my starting point. The deep recessed tail light panel was the only design element, that I chose to use from the original car but I loved the name so I used it for my Good Guys Challenger entry.

My concept as the rear C pillar cut and leaned forward and stretched further back towards the edge of the trunk giving the car a less formal looking roofline. I then designed custom body colored side mirrors, added a custom restyled forward tilting hood like a Corvette, under the hood resides a late model super charged 426 Hemi backed by 6 speed trans.
The front fenders have black anodized billet side vents and the fenders and hood have been extended 3 inches. The stock ’70 grille housing has been reworked to house late model Challenger headlights the hood has been dropped down over the lights with a deeper drop to the center creating a snarled look to the front of the car.
The front lower valance houses Chrysler Penstar shaped driving light housings with a chin spoiler that forces air into a lower grille that cover the intercooler for the super charger.

The rear of the car I recessed the reworked factory tail light housing deeper into the trunk area. The tail light housing also houses a gas door that covers the now centered fuel filler, below the the Chrysler Penstars repeat again only this time as exhaust tips with an integrated diffuser panel below them.

The wheels black satin finished five spoke two piece 20 “ diameter wheels accented with matching pearl yellow paint used on the cars body. The fronts are 11” wide and the rears measure 15”. Black accent striping across the hood and trunk and the lower rocker panels adorn the car along with Yellow Jacket decal badging, giving the car a factory concept feel.

Again, we’re very proud of our design, and appreciate you taking the time to vote for it.

Good Guys asks Kaucher Kustoms to design the 2010 Grand prize Giveaway car

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

Goodguys is proud to announce the 2010 Grand Prize Giveaway Car – the 1970 Boss Snake.  The Boss Snake is a Retro Boss 429 headed 466 Ford powered super muscle car designed by Kaucher Kustoms being built by RPM Motor Sports of Warrendale, Pennsylvania. RPM Motor Sports is the winner of the 2009 Good Guys Street Machine of the year award for their wicked black ‘69 Firebird convertible .The Boss Snake is a concept based on the “QuarterHorse “A  Ford internal design study based on a’70 Boss 429 Mustang of which two prototypes were built.

The car’s finish will be PPG/Goodguy yellow. It will feature a complete Air Ride suspension system and powered by a Jon Kaase-built 466 Ford hemi motor, making and incredible 771 HP, backed by a Tremec 6 speed transmission, custom one-off Intro Wheels designed by Kaucher Kustoms and many other unique muscle car performance parts and accessories.

Conceived as a possible replacement for both the Boss 429 and Shelby Mustangs, the so-called QuarterHorse Mustangs were built from actual Boss 429 Mustangs by the Kar Kraft company in Brighton, Michigan. Also referred to as the “Composite” Mustang, it contained several different parts and pieces than the original BOSS 429 Mustangs. The body was standard 1970 Boss 429, the front clip was Shelby Mustang, less the hood scoops, and the dash was Cougar. The first Quarterhose, KK 2061, was painted Grabber Blue and was initially fitted with a Boss 429 engine. It was soon replaced with a 429 SCJ and sent to Hollywood to star with Burt Reynolds in a short-lived TV series called “Dan August”. The second Quarterhorse was Candy apple Red and was fitted with a 429 SCJ engine. Amazingly, both Quarterhorses survived the crusher and are in the hands of collectors.

Project sponsors include: Vintage Air, Classic Instrument, Painless Performance, BFGoodrich, Flaming River, Ricks Hot Rods, Dynacorn, Baer Brakes, Tremec, Optima Batteries, Herculiner, PEAK, Grundy Insurance, Flowmaster Exhaust, Comp Cams, Performance Rod & Custom.
