This is where things get serious and we need everyone to understand that Horsepower equals money! Let’s say you’re building a weekend warrior to tear up the streets on Saturday night, well then let us put together a combination that works together from the engine, transmission to rear end, and I will guarantee that a 500 hp engine with everything matching from your camshaft to your rear end gears working in harmony will straight up kill most everything you will run into when it comes down to go time! And within a manageable budget!


If we’re building you an Extreme Machine for the race track that is going to take your life onto the next level of life, well then just prepare to open up that wallet and let the good times roll.


If it’s naturally aspirated, boosted or N2o engines… We have what you crave. If you need a bulletproof overdrive that will scoot you down the highway while maintaining your drag gears, we will incorporate this onto your drive train for smooth sailing.


If you would like to put an order in on one of Widow’s limited edition Challengers, Mustang, or Camaros please feel free to call the Widow hotline for a personal tour of how these machines are going to change your perspective on anything you have ever seen or felt so you can truly understand the magnitude behind the driving force we call Widow’s Extreme Machines.

Muscle Car Restoration

Restore you dream car from Start to Finish

When looking to restore your muscle car, classic auto, or turn your grandfather’s old Mercury into a smoothed out street rod, our specialized techniques and design will turn your ride into a first class show stopper!

So we have the speed thing down, we have one of the fastest cars on the street with estimated 0 to 60 times in under three seconds, this bad boy has gotten up to speeds in excess of 170mph! Well than I guess the next best thing would be to slow down before we drive ourselves straight through that hairpin curve fifty feet into the desert straight into that Saguaro cactus that has unfortunately brought forth some very tragic and expensive Friday nights! Yea blame on the lack of driving skill, or the fifth of Jack Daniels you consumed through the evening, NO, it was the crappy brakes!

Back in the day you had certain options when it came to specific driving nature. If you wanted to go fast in a straight line you bought a muscle car, if you were more of a road race person, you bought a sports car, and if you had money falling out of your ass you bought a Super car.

Well as time moved on technology and engineering brought us to a place where we were able to cross the paths of our choices to accomplish feats unheard of back in the day. We Have developed suspension and braking systems to not only take our classic muscle car to sports car standards but also to step it up into the 200 MPH super car bracket!

What our goal is here at Widow’s extreme machines is to put together a combination that balances the power plant throughout the entire drive train and suspension which in turn leads to a vehicle that will be right in the middle of chaos and insanity, right where you want it!

So depending on your budget will be able to choose from manufactures like Wilwood, and Baer, or even the almighty Brembo to provide you with the best stopping power available for your classic Hot Rod or muscle car.

Exhaust

I’ve said it before and ill say it again, stance is what makes people say ok, or HELL YES!

Trust me; we have this one down. There really is nothing worse than your lifted truck that squats 3” in the rear because you trusted a lift co. to give you the right stuff, or when your Muscle car looks like it’s going on a cross country road trip. Let’s face it, your suspension is all about the angle in which you need addressed.

So if you need quarter mile traction, or need to take the turns as if you were Indi man Jack, let’s get you in the specific profile, so you can look Rad at the car shows or dominate at the track!

Superchargers

Nitrous Systems

Ignition

Induction & Fuel Systems

In the thirty years I’ve been in the profession of restoring classic cars I can honestly say the electrical system has to be hands down the most over looked part of the vehicle! I can’t even begin to tell you the nightmares I have seen behind some of these dash boards, and how half of you escaped a dozen bare and melted positive feeds from grounding out and burning your investment down to the ground.
I’m going to tell you this one time so understand to recognize the importance of replacing wiring that is over 20 years old or wiring that has been molested to the point of no return, REPLACE IT!

Wiring to us at Widow’s extreme machines is a common every day practice so take it from me when I tell you it’s no big thing! If you want original equipment, or would like to have us install an aftermarket harness like Painless you’ll be assured that all of your wiring gets routed properly and all the splices are soldered and heatshrinked, NO butt connectors!

So as much as we like to watch things smoke, burn and blow up lets enjoy it in leisure time like the 4th of July or sighting in our rocket launchers, and not your precious 84 El Camino because the starter wire was laying on top of your fuel line!

Engine Compartments

Cooling Systems

Upgrade your cooling system to handle the Desert Heat

I don’t know about you but I live right smack dab in the middle of the desert and in no way in hell would I ever take the chance on a mediocre cooling system! We at Widow’s Extreme machines will talk you into spending money were duly needed and this is that one place. So let’s make sure we have a nice radiator, appropriate fans, a high flow water pump, and a balanced thermostat. That should be all she wrote when it comes to keeping that mean machine cool!

Tires & Wheels

Make a statement

We understand that custom wheels make a statement. We can help you find and fit the perfect tire and wheel package to put the horsepower to the ground as well as look good.

When it comes to instrumentation there really is nothing more important than monitoring engine function. Last thing you need is to blow your $10,000 engine because you were to cheep to install accurate gages!

Widow’s extreme machines proudly use Auto Meter, VDO, and Stewart Warner or be Top dog with a custom set of exclusive Widow Industries Gage sets, they are SWEET!
