V8 Interceptor

V8 Interceptor

Everybody knows that muscle cars are hot! Everywhere you look people are rolling out some pretty incredible builds on classic muscle cars. The V8 Interceptor project was a way for Stacey to show viewers how to take a road less traveled and hot rod something a little more unique like a 1967 Mercury Cougar. Starting with a lady owned, robin-egg blue, original car, Stacey began to transform it into a state of the art muscle machine worthy of the name “V8 Interceptor.” With 850hp of Boss big block Ford sticking through the hood, tons of subtle custom touches and miles deep black paint... this car is breathtakingly beautiful and something that would make even Mad Max happy!
