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.

General Motors isn't the only automaker with ignition switch problems. Chrysler is fighting it too and is now announcing a recall of 695,957 examples worldwide of the Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans from the 2008-2010 model years, plus the 2009-2010 Dodge Journey.
Wed, 06 Aug 2014 20:01:00 EST
According to a statement from Chrysler, the models have a bad wireless ignition node detent ring in the ignition switch, making it possible for drivers to appear to have the key in the "Run" position but for the spring not to fully engage. It can then slip back to the "Accessory" position and shut the car off. If this happens, the vehicle loses power steering, brake boost and the airbags.
There is some disparity about the number of vehicles affected under this recall. In its statement, Chrysler claims that it covers 525,206 vehicles in the US, 102,892 in Canada, 25,591 in Mexico and 42,268 elsewhere. However, the recall announcement posted by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration lists an estimated 438,109 vehicles in the US. Chrysler spokesperson Nick Cappa told Autoblog via email that the reasoning for the different figures "will become clear at a later date."
Dodge is hoping that a heavy dash of humor helps it move some more units of the Dart with a hilarious ad campaign called Don't Touch My Dart. The spots star actors Craig Robinson, best known for his role as Darryl on The Office, and Jake Johnson from New Girl as neighbors and friends playing a game of one-upmanship over Robinson's new car. Johnson is envious of the ride and just wants to touch it.

The ads are pretty funny if you're a fan of somewhat absurdist humor, and Robinson has just the right amount of over-the-top seriousness to really make the commercials work. They have kind of a Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote vibe with Johnson constantly in inept pursuit of what he wants, but he clearly isn't getting it.
The first four spots in the campaign are already online, but according to Dodge this is just the beginning. The company says that it's planning about 24 different versions of these ads in various lengths to play on TV and online. You can check out the ads titled First Scratch, Birdhouse Police Garage Door and Voice Touching below, along with the brand's release about the new ads. There's also a pretty good gag on its YouTube page with Robinson protecting his Dart.
The Dodge Dart is a decent little car. It's honest, basic transportation, and many of us at Autoblog are genuinely fond of the Alfa Romeo-based compact sedan. For 2014, not a whole lot changes in the Dart world, save the addition of this new Blacktop edition that makes its debut here at the Detroit Auto Show.
It's all very simple, this Blacktop package, and doesn't actually alter performance in any way. Instead, buyers are treated to blacked-out exterior bits like 18-inch wheels, the crosshair grille and headlamp bezels. Inside, black/tungsten or black/red cloth seats are available, with red contrast stitching throughout the cabin.
Adding the Blacktop pack to your Dart SXT with the Rallye Appearance Group will set you back a scant $295, and while it's just an appearance package, it all looks pretty nice to us.
