Northern Bel: The Ultimate Belvedere

The House of Muscle

EP. 3 Season 1

Mike Musto – “My favorite episode of The House Of Muscle thus far would be Episode 3: The Ultimate Belvedere. Honestly, I’m amazed this car exists. It’s got 1,600-hp, goes over 200-mph, has the build quality of a Bugatti and all in a 1967 Plymouth wrapper. This is a 50 year old car that defies physics and that was built to be comfortable, reliable and UNGODLY fast - it accomplishes all those things. I don’t get scared of many things, but this car frightened me. We filmed it on a 30 degree day in November in Ohio, and when you get wheel spin at 100+mph at 1/4 throttle, it makes you pray a little bit. People and builders always talk about what their cars can do, but David (the owner) actually did it. It’s also the first car to showcase what The House Of Muscle was truly all about.”

They’re big, brash, in your face and oh-so politically incorrect. The House Of Muscle takes a look inside the world’s obsession with the muscle car. Every month, host Mike Musto travels the globe showcasing how these automobiles - and their fanatical owners - help shape the face of today’s automotive culture. Every car has a past, and every owner a story. From home-built rat-rods to priceless rolling works of art, Musto not only profiles the cars and their place in history, but then takes these amazing machines out for a flat-out, no-holds-barred test drive.
