Doing a burnout is probably one of the most satisfying things about owning a muscle car. A lot of owners have gone to new heights to try and get a vehicle to leave a big plume of smoke. The term “rolling coal” is one way that the enthusiasts have been able to get these smoke plums bigger than ever. The tires come with a special coal coating on the outer layer, and this creates a plume of smoke like you wouldn’t believe.
There are also special coloration that you can get which will give your tires a special type of smoke that comes in colors. Sure, you can do a regular burnout. But if you want to be one of the cool kids on the block rolling coal might be the next best thing. You can get your tires to lay down some seriously cool color combinations.
We’ve all heard the little Honda Civic at the stoplight that sounds like a fart can. But custom exhaust mods are not anything new to the automotive industry. Many of these owners have found ways to give these cars an added push. But if you like loud sounds there is no doubt that you’ve heard many different exhausts over the years.
Some owners who know how to fabricate can take things a bit too far. You’ll see exhausts sticking out from different areas on the car and in some cases, there are no exhaust pipes. Doing these types of modifications have become a fad and can result in a lot of tickets. If you’re unfortunate enough to live in a smog state you’ll be saddled with all kinds of fines for doing this to your vehicle.
Everyone wants an Impala SS. The rare muscle sedan was made for a few years during the early ’90s and took the run-of-the-mill Caprice and made it into a beast. The Impala SS has become synonymous with music videos and motion pictures, but getting your hands on one is not always cheap or easy. There has been a trend of vehicle owners taking the average Caprice and turning it into an Impala clone.
The problem is that this has become too commonplace and now you have to decipher which cars are authentic and which aren’t. The Impala SS in itself is a fun car with a lot of potential. But when you take it and overlap it with an old Caprice, you get a car that just isn’t authentic. And in today’s world of automotive collecting, you want an authentic vehicle.
Ever since the original “Fast And The Furious” movie hit theaters, people have been putting body kit mods on just about anything. From the Geo Metro to the Chrysler Lebaron, if you want a body kit you are sure to find one. These cars are a bit unique in the way that they look, and owners have taken a liking to customize.

Do yourself a favor, stay away from body kits. Unless you like being tagged as a boy racer, the body kits don’t do anything for the performance of the vehicle. And when you crash into a speed bump and rip the front off your car, you might be upset.
