1968 Dodge Charger R/t Hardtop 2-door 7.2l on 2040-cars
Byron, Georgia, United States
UP FOR AUCTION IS A SUPER SOLID 68 CHARGER R/T THAT I BOUGHT NEARLY 20 YEARS AGO FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNER THAT SPECIAL ORDERED THIS CAR HERE IN MIDDLE GA. THE CAR NOT ONLY SERVED DUTY AS THE FAMILY HAULER ,BUT ALSO HAD A TOW BAR ATTACHED TO PULL HIS RACE CAR (SAID IT WAS A SOX AND MARTIN BUILT) ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. THE PAINT SCHEME YOU SEE WAS APPLIED WHEN THE CAR WAS ALMOST NEW MUCH LIKE A DICK LANDY CLINIC / RACE CAR. THATS THE OLD HISTORY AS I REMEMBER IT. THE CAR IS HIGHLY OPTIONED WITH 440 MAGNUM R/T PACKAGE AUTO ON COLUMB, BUDDY SEAT CONSOLE, A/C,TIC TOCK TACH, POWER STEERING AND BRAKES, REAR WINDOW DEFROST, HEADREST, AND VERY RARE POWER WINDOWS , TO MENTION MOST. THE CAR CAME ORIGINALLY PAINT CODE TTI MEDIUM SILVER METALIC DARK, GREEN VINYL TOP, GREEN DELUXE INTERIOR, WHITE BUMBLE BEE STRIPES. I DO NOT HAVE THE ORIGINAL MOTOR ,THE ORIGINAL OWNER HAD IT RACE BUILT AND IN A DRAG CAR AND IT WAS NOT FOR SALE, BUT I GOT 68 ENGINE PARTS INCLUDING BLOCK, HEADS WITH VALVE COVERS, INTAKE AND EXHAUST MANIFOLDS, AND OTHER ENGINE PARTS AND BRACKETS RELATED TO THIS CAR INCLUDING THE ORIGINAL RADIATOR, I BELIEVE THE ORIGINAL 727 TRANSMISSION .YEARS AGO I PICKED UP UPPER DOOR AND QUARTER TRIM PANELS(STILL VERY SUPPLE) A GOOD USABLE UPPER DASH PAD AND A VERY GOOD TICK TOCK TACK INSTRUMENT PANEL. HIS GRAND CHILDREN HAD DAMAGED THE INSTRUMENT PANEL IN THE CAR. THE ORIGINAL GRILLE IS EXCELLENT AND THE LOWER VALENCE IS NICE AND USABLE ALSO . THE MAIN FLOOR PANS ARE FAIRLY NICE WITH ONLY A FEW SMALL RUST HOLES MAINLY IN RT REAR. THE TRUNK FLOOR IS SHOT AND NEEDS REPLACED. THE UNIBODY IS VERY GOOD AND ONLY NEEDS SOME REPAIR WHERE TOW BAR WAS ATTACHED. TYPICAL RUST REPAIR IS NEEDED AROUND BACK GLASS AREA. BASIC CAR IS VERY STRAIGHT WITH LITTLE RUST AND NO CRASH DAMAGE.I THINK ONLY SOME SMALL PATCHES ARE ONLY NEEDED ON LOWER FENDERS ,DOORS ,AND QUARTERS. THE ORIGINAL SPARE TIRE LOOKS LIKE IT MAY HAVE NOT EVER BEEN USED AND COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL JACK. THIS RARE HIGHLY OPTIONED R/T NEEDS RESTORING AND IT DOESNT LOOK LIKE I AM GOING TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.CAR WILL BE SOLD WITH GA. BILL OF SALE ONLY AND LETTER FROM GA DMV WITH NO LEAN OR RECENT TITLE HISTORY IF NEEDED. GOOD LUCK BIDDING AND EMAIL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS.

They say "idle hands are the devil's playground," but said playgrounds grow to Disney-sized proportions when a pair of jacked-up trucks, two egos, a chain and an empty mall parking lot are involved. Proof of this is the video below, which shows a Cummins-powered Dodge Ram circa 2006 to 2008 chained tail-to-tail with what looks to be a gasoline-powered Chevrolet Silverado from the late 1990s or early 2000s.

We don't necessarily have to tell you who wins this battle, but we'll let you see for yourself the lengths the "winning" driver goes to prove his point. There's plenty of foul language in the video below, so beware that this might be Not Safe For Work, and not that we should have to tell you, but please, do not try this at home.
It's frightening to think of how quickly the mice would have overtaken us if we hadn't stayed one step ahead of them with better mousetraps. We'll never have to worry about that in our relentlessly re-engineered world, though. Case in point: Chrysler has been granted a patent by the US Patent and Trademark Office for an improved design of the already wondrous Stow 'n' Go seating found in the automaker's Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans.

Introduced in 2005, the Stow 'n' Go was improved in 2008, and based on the drawings of this third-generation improvement, the new design appears to allow stowage of the second row of seats without having to move the front-row seats forward as much. It look like it also involves fewer operations and moving parts, with a portion of the seatback being incorporated into the flat floor when the seats are stowed, as opposed to having a completely separate cover.
It's possible that the innovation may appear on the next-generation minivans expected in 2015, but Chrysler isn't commenting on the patent.
Watchers of the auto industry will notice a theme among the formerly bankrupted American automakers, General Motors and Chrysler. There are the post-bankruptcy vehicles, and the pre-bankruptcy vehicles. The former, in the case of Chrysler, include the Jeep Grand Cherokee, as well as the 200 and 300. For GM, there's the Cadillac ATS, Chevrolet Impala and Buick Encore, among others. These vehicles have the freshest styling, with sharp exteriors and well-crafted interiors, as well as advanced powertrains and well-sorted chassis.
As for the pre-bankruptcy vehicles, they tend to be easy to spot. Most suffer from inferior driving dynamics, cheaper interiors, poorer fuel economy and often homely looks (we know, there were some decent cars before the bankruptcy, but they were pretty heavily outweighed by the bad ones). Think late, last-generation Chevrolet Impala or Chrysler 200. Increasingly, though, we're seeing vehicles that split the balance between pre- and post-bankruptcy. Vehicles like the Dodge Journey.
The Journey debuted in 2007 as a 2008 model year vehicle, meaning it should fall into the latter category. But heavily breathed upon in 2011, it now enjoys a new, 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, a big, critically acclaimed touchscreen display and in the case of today's tester, a new-for-2014 Crossroad spec.
