Premier Street Rods Now Licensed by General Motors

This month we are very proud to announce that our 1947-1953 Chevrolet Truck Cabs are now an officially licensed General Motors product! What this means is that for everyone who purchases a cab through us, that cab carries the GM name with it in recognition of the quality and craftsmanship of the product.

As you know our truck cabs are built BETTER THAN THE ORIGINALS with 18 gauge steel and include 25% more spot welds than 1940s and 1950s models that were produced on the GM assembly line. We thank General Motors for their support and cooperation and look forward to a wonderful future re-producing some of history's greatest trucks.

Big Mike Harrah's THOR

Go big or go home! That's Big Mike's motto with everything he does, and this project is certainly no exception. Big Mike started this project with a 24/71 Detroit Diesel (24 cylinders and 1,704 cubic inches) out of a Hatteras yacht, and then began designing what would become a major feat in mechanical engineering. Big Mike fabricated an intake system with 12 superchargers and Nitrous Oxide injection. Total investment for just this portion? Over $75,000.

Tim Spinks, manager of Big Mikes Havasu operations, along with master fabricators Paul Abram and Tim Spinks began designing and building a truck that was capable of housing the massive engine. Starting with 40' long, 4" x 14" custom frame rails they have developed it into a custom 359 Peterbilt that is comprised of 3 separate trucks. On the dyno, Thor topped out at over 3,000 HP!
