Mothers Big Rig 2014 Schedule Announced

Mothers Big Rig

Now THIS is what we call an awesome car. This beautiful propane-powered 1970 Chevelle, affectionately named ProPane, will be loaded up in the Mothers Big Rig this year and hauled all over the country (see schedule below) – even attending Hot Rod Power Tour, Barrett-Jackson auctions, and racing events and car shows.


With a General Motors LSX 454 cubic-inch crate engine paired with a Magnuson supercharger hidden under the hood, ProPane delivers a jaw-dropping 925 horses and 954.8 lb-ft of torque to the custom wheels through a G-Force T-56 6-speed custom transmission. What with the Magnaflow custom headers by Richard Waits, Magnaflow exhaust, Mattson intercooler, and much more, it’s no wonder the Chevelle is so powerful.

That being said, a powerful engine requires a strong chassis and Obrothers Design was on the case. It is equipped with custom billet control arms from Obrothers, and an integrated 10-point roll cage, while stopping power is supplied by Baer Brakes 6-piston monoblock calipers.

The upholstery is custom by Griffin Interiors, and the dash features Redline and Auto Meter Phantom Series gauges. Meanwhile, the exterior has been overhauled and custom painted by Chris Guinn and Spade Brothers, along with Artistic Plating.

The awesome tow vehicle is a Peterbilt Model 387 with a Cummins ISX diesel under the hood, pulling a 53-foot Featherlite trailer filled with all things awesome, including a complete media center and lounge equipped with satellite TV and a comprehensive Sony audio and video system with Kicker speakers. In addition to the precious cargo that is ProPane, the truck is capable of hauling three additional vehicles.
