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.

According to Automotive News, Chrysler is hoping Fast & Furious 6 will be kind to the Dodge Dart. While the compact sedan doesn't actually show up in the film, Dodge has partnered up with the movie franchise for a new ad featuring the Dart.
Sun, 29 Jun 2014 19:21:00 EST
Chrysler hasn't exactly seen the high sales numbers it was originally hoping for with the new sedan, thanks in part to a couple of missteps. For starters, most early-production vehicles were only offered with a manual transmission. Analysts believe Chrysler squandered around 95 percent of potential Dart sales because automatic transmission options weren't immediately available.
Right now, the Dodge Dart rakes 19th among compact cars, pulling down 31,064 sales through April. Last month was the company's strongest, with 8,099 units moving off of dealer lots. Unfortunately, the model has also been handicapped by its older sister, the Avenger. With Chrysler throwing heavy incentives at the aging sedan, many consumers have taken advantage of a better deal with the slightly larger, more powerful Avenger.
You ever hear a story and start cringing before you hear the end because you know how it's going to turn out? That could very well have been the case with the story from a few weeks ago in West Valley City, Utah, where a 14-year-old kid stole his grandfather's Hyundai Veloster and took it for a joyride - through a park full of children. But instead it turned into a heart-warming tale of heroism and a community banding together to do what's right... and then some.

Bryson Rowley was that hero who identified the danger and, rather than sit idly by and watch the joyrider potentially run over a child, got into his truck and drove it into the menacing runaway hatchback. The collision caused some $7,500 to his 2008 Dodge Ram 2500, but instead of getting stuck with the bill - one which his insurance may very well have refused to pay since the crash was, technically speaking, intentional - his community pitched in a helping hand.
Bryan Ellison, who owns West Valley Carstar with his brother, saw the news on television and wanted to help. So he brought Rowley a rental car, picked up his truck and brought it back to his auto repair shop. People from around the community donated parts, and when all was said and done, some $15,000 of work and upgrades were performed on the Ram that was returned to an overwhelmed Bryson Rowley better than new. Watch the video below for the full story.
It's fascinating the way that one change to a complex system can have all sorts of unintended consequences. For instance, there are hundreds of new Chrysler Town and County and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans built in Windsor, Ontario, sitting in lots on the Detroit waterfront because of the energy boom in the Bakken oil field in the northern US and parts of Canada.
The huge amount of crude oil coming from these sites mostly use freight trains for transport, and that supply boom has resulted in a shortage of railcars to carry other goods. According to The Windsor Star, North American crude oil transport by train has gone from 9,500 carloads in 2008 to 434,032 carloads in 2013. Making matters worse, some North American rail infrastructure is still damaged because of this year's harsh winter, and that's slowing things down even further.
Chrysler admits to The Star that it has had some delivery delays due to the freight train shortage. In the meantime, it's using more trucks to deliver its vehicles. Trucking is a far less economical solution, partially because a train can carry so many more units at one time, but alternatives are slim. The Windsor plant alone has a deal for 33 trucks to distribute the minivans around Canada and the Midwestern US.
