Modified '70 429
1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429
Reference Sheet: detroitdemigod.deviantart.com/…

About the 1970 Boss 429
The '70 Boss 429 is extremely rare, only 499 of them were made. the Boss came from the Ford factory with a429 cubic inch 'blue crescent twisted' hemi engine that was originally developed to compete in NASCAR. The organizations rules required companies to make 500 of any given model before it could race. Though Ford released a '69 even Richard Petty drove one. It was so good that NASCAR mandated restrictor plates for all HEMI's starting in 1970. This caused engine builders to start using small displacement motors that didn't have to use a restrictor plate. 1970 was the second and last year the Boss 429 was made.

About this 1970 Boss 429
Some features of this particular example make it extra special, if not stock.

Super Wide Tires: The Hoosiers in the rear are about 15 inches wide and provide traction for 500+ horsepower.
Fender Flares: The fenders are not original but were necessary in the 1970 (and today) to cover the wide tires. Tires that protrude from the body of the car were considered a safety hazard since they could pick up and throw stones or mud.
Radical Camshaft: The build of this cam keeps the intake and exhaust valves open longer and pushes more air through the engine. This increases the horsepower and makes the idle rumble. (not a stock cam, basically ~Demi)
The car has never been restored and is driven when ever possible.

Sox Impala
1963 Chevrolet Impala Z-11
Youtube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2yCME…
Magazine: www.streetmusclemag.com/news/m…
Reference Sheet: detroitdemigod.deviantart.com/…

The Z-11 was based on a standard 1963 Impala 2 door hardtop body with the exception of a few weight saving aluminum body parts. The hood, front fenders, front and rear bumpers including brackets were all aluminum. The most important feature of the '63 Z-11 engine was a stroked crankshaft bringing the engine up to 427 CID. This displacement figure was arrived at by both NHRA and NASCAR as the legal CID limit for stock car racing. The reasoning behind this decision was that both sanctioning bodies through the cubic inch race was getting out of hand, and the brakes needed to be applied by limiting the displacement size. Ford was already rumored to have plans to field a 483 CID monster motor in 1963, and that was enough to spur both associations into action. A 7 liter (427.2) was decided as the most logical engine size to standardize on. Here's what Hot Rod Magazine had to say about the famed Z-11.
"Based on the standard 409 block, the Z11 plant was fitted with a stroker crank. The Z11 heads also differed from the standard W-head 409 designs, featuring large, oval intake ports that were significantly taller than the HiPo 409's. Atop the engine was a two piece aluminum intake capped with the same dual Carters used on the 409. Over those was a completely unique air cleaner which featured an "arm" that plugged into the firewall (sealed by a rubber boot) that drew air from the cowl."
The Engine became available as RPO (Regular Production Order) Z11, but there was far more to a Z11 optioned Impala than just an engine swap. It was all-business and designed for drag racing. The radio and front sway bar were history. Luxuries such as sound deadener, radio and heater were tossed. Only the "dog leg" shifter and Delco electric tachometer were standard. An extensive list of aluminum front end component's substituted standard production parts, including the hood, fenders, front and rear bumpers, as well as the brackets and braces, grille brackets, a two piece fan shroud, the grille filler panel and good support catch. With these, the car weighted in at about three hundred pounds less than an equivalent 409-powered Impala off the production line.

The Joe
Some people call it a dump, I call it a monument.

Capacity: 20,066
Broke Ground: May 16, 1977
Opened: December 12, 1979
Height: 85′ (feet)

Red Wings record at the Joe:
827 Wins
432 Losses
195 Tie

108-66 in the post season
Lindstrom has played 789 regular season games at the Joe
Zetterburg will complete 1,000 games total this weekend at the arena
Yzerman leads the reason season there with 330 goals and 897 points
Fedorov scored the most goals in a single game at the Joe with 5 in 1996

ESPN reports:

Feb. 5, 1980: Longtime Red Wings star Gordie Howe, representing the Hartford Whalers, received a lengthy standing ovation before his 23rd and final NHL All-Star Game. Also of note, this was Gretzky’s first NHL All-Star Game.

June 13, 1987: Detroit hosted the first NHL entry draft held in the United States. Buffalo selected Pierre Turgeon with the first overall pick. New Jersey had the second pick, and they selected Brendan Shanahan, who won three Stanley Cups in Detroit.

May 16, 1996: After winning a record 62 games during the 1995-96 regular season, the Red Wings were pushed to a seventh game in their Western Conference semifinal series against St. Louis. The game was scoreless into the second overtime when Detroit captain Yzerman rocketed a shot past Blues goalie Jon Casey for the series-winning goal.

March 26, 1997: Detroit's Darren McCarty fought Colorado's Claude Lemieux in retaliation for Lemieux's hit on teammate Kris Draper during the 1996 Western Conference final. Patrick Roy and Mike Vernon also went at it in a rare goalie fight. The brawl has been called Bloody Wednesday, Fight Night at The Joe and the Brawl in Hockeytown.

June 7, 1997: The Red Wings end a 42-year Stanley Cup drought with a four-game sweep of the Flyers in the final. McCarty scored the Cup-clinching goal in Game 4 with stickhandling around defenseman Janne Niinimaa and goalie Ron Hextall.

June 13, 2002: The Red Wings clinched their third Stanley Cup in six seasons by defeating the Hurricanes. The 2001-02 team featured nine players currently in the Hall of Fame. It was also the ninth and final Stanley Cup title for Scotty Bowman as a head coach. Bowman put on his skates to take one final twirl with the Cup.

Jan. 2, 2007: Vladimir Konstantinov, helped by a walker, returned to the ice at Joe Louis Arena for Yzerman's No. 19 retirement ceremony. It was the first time Konstantinov took to the ice without a wheelchair since being injured in the 1997 limousine crash that ended his career.

Fun facts

Known as “The Joe,” the stadium is named after former boxer and heavyweight champion Joe Louis, who grew up in the Detroit area. Joe Louis Arena and Madison Square Garden are the only buildings in the NHL without a corporate naming sponsor.

Opened in 1979, Joe Louis Arena is the second-oldest building in the NHL. Only the “new” Madison Square Garden, which opened in 1968, is older, but it has been renovated extensively in recent years.
---------------

It has hosted the NHL Finals six times: 1995, 1997, 1998, 2002, 2008, & 2009
The first event was a basketball game between the University of Michigan & The university of Detroit
The first Red Wings game was December 27, 1979 against the St. Louis Blues
