The December issue of HOT ROD is available at a newsstand near you, and that's a good thing for several reasons. Five reasons, actually: the five muscle cars that were dragged out of a field in Arizona. If you like big-blocks and '60s muscle, take a gander at these superb Mopar field finds, with a GT500 KR just thrown in for good measure—you know, because that's no big deal.

The Mopars all have 440 power except for the Challenger, which has a Hemi. Imagine being the person who stumbled upon this group—not a bad haul, that's for sure.

The barn finds didn't stop there, either. Check out this '72 Chevelle that was plucked from under a carport after sitting for nearly 20 years. It cleaned up nicely, and the new owner plans to drive it as is.

This forlorn '66 Shelby GT350-H rent-a-racer didn't fare so well in its battle against the elements. Being buried up to its axle in mud and leaves in a wet environment didn't help, either. The car's new owner operates a restoration business, so he's up to the task of returning it to its black and gold glory.

We did have a shiny car in the issue to offer some contrast to all the faded paint and rusty rescues. This '51 Hudson Wasp looks cool and sounds great with a Dodge Viper V-10 under the hood. It rides on an Art Morrison chassis, suspended by RideTech air shocks. Custom headers and exhaust flow into SpinTech mufflers.

Our tech guru Marlan Davis takes on the murky topic of cam choice for large-displacement engines. If you think about it, a "big" cam for a 440 isn't so big if that 440 is actually a 540, thanks to bored-out cylinders and a stroker crank. Marlan ploughs through the muck with some solid info.

We've got plenty of tech, as well, from cooling system upgrades, a crate engine dyno test, and an LED taillight conversion from United Pacific. We've got you covered bumper to bumper in this issue.
