It's December, and as the saying goes, it's "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year". The Holidays are fast approaching, and the spirit of giving is in the air. Proof of this could be seen this past weekend in Woodland Hills, CA at the 14th Annual Motor4Toys Charity Car Show & Toy Drive. The goal of the event is to bring the motorsport community together for the holidays to collect as many toys as possible for less fortunate children, so that they too can have a happy holiday season.
Always a great event, with the turnout encompassing all manner of noteworthy modern and classic vehicles from muscle cars, european cars, tuner cars, supercars, and the rarest of rare vehicles that you may not see anywhere else other than the internet or in an automotive museum. No doubt, with such a gathering of high quality vehicles, there was bound to be several Vortech and Paxton Supercharged setups in attendance. Here are just a few of the ones we found walking the show.
Jose (@garagesalerawesome) brought out his Vortech V-3 Si Supercharged Competition Orange S550 Mustang GT. The car was looking sweet, and he mentioned that he had just added the new carbon fiber air inlet duct and a bunch of suspension parts from Steeda as well.
Jesus (@slick_esq) had his Vortech V-3 H67B Supercharged Pandem Widebody BRZ at the event looking amazing as usual.
Brian (@hcracerx) and Erica (@i.have.no.idea.whats.happening) came to the show in their S197 Mustang GT. The car is daily driven, and has been running 12psi of boost from their V-3 Si on the stock engine for over 10 years and 113,000 miles! This is a testament to what Vortech Superchargers is all about - safe, reliable, efficient boost.
This original Shelby GT350 Mustang is an amazing piece of automotive history, and is still in great condition. The classic Paxton Supercharger under the hood was a factory option on the GT350 in 1966, and is still one of the coolest factory options ever offered.
When Chris from ADTR (@adtrperformance) chose to get the "RAAAARE" custom license plate for his 2003 Mercury Marauder, it wasn't because of irony. This car is one of only 328 cars made in the Dark Blue Pearl paint code. Now being used to showcase ADTR's Supercharging System that is available for the Marauder that utilizes a Vortech V-3 Si Supercharger, air-to-air charge cooler, and all the required brackets, pulleys, ducting, etc. to put the boost to your 32V 4.6L powered Marauder. To get your very own Supercharger System for Marauder, Crown Victoria, or other Panther Platform vehicle, check out ADTR.net.
Jimmy (@schuckwithmebro) and his Vortech V-3 Supercharged Gen. 5 Camaro SS was sitting pretty in the HRE Wheels booth. Although we didn't catch an underhood of his car, you can see that stealthy Vortech air-to-air charge cooler peeking out from behind the front fascia (or see by checking out his Instagram).
The linear powerband of a centrifugal supercharger is the perfect compliment for the Honda S2000 and its high revving engine. This S2K from the show was sporting a Science of Speed Supercharging System, featuring the NOVI 1220 Supercharger from Paxton.
