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.

Striving for improved fuel economy, we already knew that Chrysler will begin using a nine-speed automatic transmission in some of its new products this year, but what we haven't known is that volume at which this gearbox will be used. According to Bloomberg, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has been quoted as saying that the automaker expects to sell close to 200,000 units equipped with this new transmission in 2013. Those gear-rich trannies will be spread out across three models, consisting of the redesigned Chrysler 200, the still-unnamed Jeep Liberty replacement and the Dodge Dart.

This transmission should play a pivotal role in making Chrysler vehicles more competitive in their respective segments. Just for comparison, one of the Dart's key competitors, the Toyota Corolla, still uses a four-speed automatic, and a previous report indicates that the next-generation 200 could get up to 38 miles per gallon on the highway, which is better than most non-hybrid midsize sedans on the market. Marchionne says that the new Jeep model is expected during the second quarter of this year, but there is no word as to when the new 200 or nine-speed Dart will debut, but clearly Dodge would like to have the transmission in its compact yesterday. As for that volume figure, it definitely doesn't seem out of reach since the Dart, Liberty and 200 combined for a total of more than 225,000 units in 2012.
How many more gears can we expect in future cars? Probably not many more, since the CEO of transmission-builder ZF, Stefan Sommer, previously stated that nine speeds was the "natural limit" for transmissions.
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.
The reborn Dodge Challenger might be getting a bit long in the tooth, having been on the market in its current form since 2008, but Chrysler isn't going to give up on its brutish, full-size two-door just yet. For this year's SEMA Show, the Challenger will be getting a new Mopar edition, as well as a retro-cool shaker hood on the 5.7-liter, Hemi-equipped R/T models.
As we mentioned last night, the Shaker Package will cost $2,500, but includes the Super Track Pak (new steering rack, brake linings, upgraded shocks and 20-inch Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Car tires), a $595 option on its own. The shaker hood result in a performance bump of any kind, but the blacked-out, pop-up scoop is a nifty feature that hasn't been seen on a production car since the Ford Mustang Mach 1 in the early 2000s.
The Mopar '14 Challenger (pictured right) follows the cues of previous Mopar Editions, which have included the 2010 Challenger, 2011 Charger, 2012 300 and 2013 Dart. Only 100 Mopar '14 Challengers will be produced, and they'll include the new shaker hood, Mopar's distinctive blue graphics and wheels, and whatever is pilfered from the accessory catalog.
