THERE’S A CHRYSLER PACIFICA HELLCAT SOMEWHERE IN MANHATTAN

The eBay Motors New York Auto Parts Show Runs Today From 11AM-5PM ET At The Classic Car Club Of Manhattan

The 2022 New York Auto Show is happening for the first time in three years. And while Jeep showed off big debuts (literally) with the Wagoneer L and Grand Wagoneer L, as well as the new Hurricane inline-six engine, there wasn’t much worth talking about. But that’s also because the rest of the fun stuff isn’t even at the Javits Convention Center. It’s at the Classic Car Club of Manhattan. We’re talking about the inaugural New York Auto Parts Show, hosted by eBay Motors, which is open to the public from 11am – 5pm, Thursday, April 14. On display is what’s set to be a Chrysler Pacifica Hellcat, a Ford Ranger 6×6, a LS-swapped Tesla Model S, and 1983 Plymouth Horizon (aka a Dodge Omni) that features the fabled Hot Vapor engine invented by Smokey Yunick and restored by Danny Soliz of Hill Country Performance, plus others.

We were able to catch up with YouTubers Tavarish and Grind Hard Plumbing, both of which have well over 1 million subscribers, and are displaying machines that were made possible by acquiring parts up for sale eBay Motors. For Tavarish, it’s the Chrysler Pacifica Hellcat that will be ready by the 2022 SEMA Show. For Grind Hard Plumbing, it’s a Ford Ranger 6×6 that could be seen at a Holley LS Fest next year.

Whereas there are plenty of collector car auction sites these days, not all of them sell the parts customers need to restore or modify their projects. eBay tends to have a bajillion parts for sale at any given time. Okay, while that’s not exactly an approximation, eBay Motors does generate over $10B in annual Gross Merchandise Value annually, while one out every three eBay shoppers buy parts and accessories for their automobiles.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
