Up for your consideration is this 1974 Dodge Challenger from the hit movie "2 Guns" starring Mark Walherg and Denzel Washington. Done up as a 1970, this was one of two used in the film. The car was altered to appear as a 1970 with appropriate grill and tail lights. Painted flat black, the car gives a menacing look and sounds good too. Originally, the car came with a 318 but was changed to a 440 for more power. It has power steering and brakes, auto transmission, and stunt brake handle for slides. In the movie, this car was used extensively as Wahlberg's car.
As a bonus, this car was also used in the futuristic thriller "In Time" starring Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried. In that movie it was a police car driven by Cillian Murphy. Door handles were shaved with remote poppers. A new grill and tail panel was fabricated with slats for a futuristic look. Police L.E.D lightbars were in the grill and upper windshield and custom flat style wheels were added.
Rarely does a car get to be featured in 2 movies like this which makes the car especially valuable. You have a chance to preserve this rolling piece of history by bidding now!
This car runs and drives. 440 is strong and runs well. Tranny shifts good with no problems noted. A/C is not hooked up but is a conversion style newer unit. Interior has been redone with newer upholstery and clean carpet and headliner. Dash is in decent shape with some auxiliary gauges. Some stock instruments may not work or be hooked up. The car will need some basic attention to be a daily driver. Paint is okay and there is evidence of repairs underneath. Front valence is bent out but can be easily replaced. Trunk has some rust through but frame area is solid. If the car reaches reserve, I will repaint the exterior with fresh paint if the buyer is patient enough to allow some time for that. If you want the car right away, then paint will stay as is. Tires are nice with stock type Magnum rims. This cars needs some minor attention to be a great car. Comes with Certificate of Authenticity from Picture Car Warehouse from BOTH features and buyer must sign a simple release of liability.

Including all-wheel-drive models, there are ten versions of the 2015 Dodge Charger. The tenth variant - better described as the ten-tenths variant and the topmost model - is this Charger SRT Hellcat.
Sun, 28 Apr 2013 15:05:00 EST
Superficially, you already know what it is: take the massively powerful Hellcat engine that's Frankensteined into the Dodge Challenger and stitch it into the recently facelifted Charger sedan.
Oh, but that would be superficial knowledge indeed. Russ Ruedisueli, vehicle line executive and head engineer for SRT, claims the Charger Hellcat is, "The industry's most irreverent four-door supercar." We looked up the word "irreverent" in the Oxford dictionaries, and it turns out the word doesn't mean "707 horsepower," nor "650 pound-feet of torque" nor "3.7-second 0-60 time, and seats five adults." It does mean, "Showing a lack of respect for people or things that are generally taken seriously."
In 2011, Chrysler announced a $72-million investment in its Toledo Machining Plant to modernize production of the eight- and nine-speed torque-converters for automatic transmissions made there. That upgrade work won't be finished until Q3 of this year, but Chrysler has already announced a further $19.6-million investment to increase production capacity for the nine-speeders.
Mon, 07 Jul 2014 11:29:00 EST
The extra units will be necessary because the nine-speed transmission they'll be mated to is going into three popular models: it will debut on the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, then go into the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Dart. The company predicted that this year alone it would sell 200,000 units equipped with the nine-speed tranny, and it is spending some $374 million in addition to the investment in Toledo to upgrade production capacity for it.
The work attached to this new investment won't begin until Q3 of 2014, and it will be finished by the end of that year. There's a press release below with all the details.
You've got to hand it to Dodge for having the gumption to put the original Viper into production in the first place. It was, after all, much more of an emotional decision than a practical one, and a move which saw the first production V10 engine placed in a road car - long before the advent of the Lamborghini Gallardo, Audi R8, Porsche Carrera GT or Lexus LFA, not to mention the other Ford, BMW and Volkswagen Group models that used such engines.
It's now been 22 years since the first Viper entered production and the Viper still rolls on several generations later, but we're sad to say that courageous decision has not always been met with overwhelming sales success. In fact parent Chrysler was forced to idle the Conner Avenue plant where the Viper is made back in April due to slow sales. And while production resumed again as planned on June 23, it apparently didn't do the trick.
As a result, Chrysler corporate communications chief Shawn Morgan revealed to Autoblog that the assembly line has been shut down again for another two weeks. The line was up and running for nearly two full work weeks from June 23 until the holiday weekend that started on Thursday, July 3. But instead of coming back online today as planned, it's been idled again for the weeks of July 7 and 14. That means it will be July 21, at the earliest, before the serpentine supercars start slithering down the assembly line at Conner Avenue again. Once it does, however, production is set to resume at the same pace it was before the shutdown.
