Nicola Bulgari loves station wagons and this is one of his favorites. I managed the build of this '96 Buick Roadmaster powered by blueprinted, roller-cammed and custom fuel-injected 502 big-block, modified auto trans, Impala SS Posi rear, six-piston discs, NASCAR coolers, serious chassis mods. Wheels are custom Impala SS clones with Buick center caps. Crazy fast! And it stops & handles. Courtesy Martyn Schorr.

Wanna add power to your 65-66 Mustang? Check out this supercharger listed on eBay.
Paradise Wheels, Inc. is the exclusive supplier/manufacturer of all ball-drive McCulloch and Paxton superchargers that were made from 1950 to 2000. We manufacture the original 1965-1968 Shelby GT350 Paxton supercharger kits that were available from Shelby American in 1966 to 1968, and all parts are available separately. In 2000, we purchased from Paxton Automotive all rights, inventory and tooling for Paxton centrifugal ball-drive supercharger units. In addition, we offer parts and rebuild services for all Paxton ball drive units (SN60, SN89, SN92, SN93 and SN2000), and McCulloch VS series units.
This listing is for the 1965-1966 Shelby GT350 Paxton supercharger kit. This kit will include all the necessary parts to install on your HP289, except a modified blower specific Paxton carburetor (those are available separately). It is possible for you to modify your existing carburetor to work with this kit. I recommend a Holley 650 double-pumper 4150 series carburetor, or an Autolite 4100 carburetor. These carburetors are available separately for an additional charge.
This kit creates between 4 and 6 lbs of boost for an increase of between 50 and 80 hp on a stock HP289 or 302 at 5500 rpm.
Paxton superchargers takes eight to ten ounces of Ford "FA" type automatic transmission oil.
I recommend using the highest octane street fuel available.
Parts included in this kit are:
• Original SN-60 supercharger painted correct blue with "Cobra" supercharged emblem
• Complete bracket assembly with idler and pulley
• Crankshaft drive pulley
• Drive belt
• Special modified fuel pump
• Intake hoses
• "Cobra" lettered carburetor enclosure box
• Air cleaner system
• All necessary hardware
• Original Instruction booklet
Rhys Millen and his team of tuners at RMR are burning the midnight oil preparing one of the three Genesis coupes for SEMA, and if there's a sure-fire way of getting our attention, it's with a flat-mount intercooler.
In addition to the new breathing mods fitted to the turbocharged, 2.0-liter, RMR has swapped out the front and rear fenders, doors and roof with carbon fiber pieces, along with fitting a massive rear wing, customized air ducting and an eight-point roll cage. Race gas will be delivered courtesy of a custom fuel cell with dual fuel inlets mounted out back and a Sparco fire suppression system appears to be partially installed. Judging by the ride height, the coupe is already sitting on the KW coilovers, but the Enkei wheels and HKS sequential gearbox haven't been fitted. Looking through the photos, it would appear that the RMR Genesis is still a few days away from paint, so we're taking up a collection around Autoblog HQ to send as case of RedBull to Rhys and his team.
