Beautifully Restored MOPAR- See Video Below
My brother and I restored this beautiful car, but now we need to sell it. Our loss is your gain. It is sitting at a friends shop so if you'd like to arrange a pre-buy/bid visit let me know. We were initially just going to repaint it, but took it down to just a shell, and couldn't justify putting crap back into it. The only thing we didn't replace was the dash. We did cover the dash. I did update the gauge panel with new decals, and completely redid the gauge cluster. There are a few items we have for it that weren't installed for these pics which of course will come with the car; glovebox, new dash decal (the one I installed wasn't quite a match), and dome light cover.
Every bit of bodywork was done with either replacement metal or Tigerhair. we removed every piece of trim and refurbished or replaced. All new rubber on seals and such. Bottom line, the only thing I would do to make this pristine would be to find a new dash for it since some retarded kid decided to cut the dash to install a radio. Other than that it looks and runs amazing!

Besides the new stuff, we also refurbished all of the other items like powder coating all the trim, and parts in the motor that take a beating. Repainted the plastics and panels. And just too much to list. The bottom line is this car is a must have! If you're into MOPAR, or just classic cars, this was a great one to have as it was everyman's Dodge. Sure the Duster (a Dart with a different nose) was great, but I honestly like the front end on this one better. I'm not a fan of the flat nose look, but to each his own.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, at least one man has reported that his 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan stalled unexpectedly on the highway shortly after being refueled. The unidentified man who contacted NHTSA regarding the issue cited as many as eight similar instances reported by other drivers.

NHTSA has announced that it will launch an inquiry into this issue, which could affect as many as 160,000 minivans from Dodge and Chrysler that were sold in 2007 (or more, if a problem is found that extends to additional models years, we'd assume). As of yet, there's no formal investigation, let alone a recall, on these vans, as the agency is merely determining if further action is needed.
Two months ago, Chrysler recalled nearly 700,000 vehicles, the majority of which were minivans, from the 2008-2010 model years to replace ignition switches after an investigation found that their weak springs and detent positions could fool a driver into thinking the car was in the "Run" position, when it's actually in the "Accessory" position.
One of the prime complaints against the Dodge Challenger is that, even in SRT8 guise, its 470 horsepower is responsible for hauling over 4,200 pounds of vehicle. For comparison, the 420 hp in the Ford Mustang GT only has to deal with 3,618 lbs. Things only get worse from there, as the higher-performance variants of both the Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro are far more powerful than an SRT8 without adding on much heft.

So what is Chrysler to do? The correct answer is add a whole lot more grunt to its hefty two-door and even the odds. That's where the all-new Hellcat engine comes into play. We reported on this engine in May, and suggested that the Hellcat, a supercharged powerplant based on a 6.4-liter V8, would easily generate 500 to 570 hp and could likely arrive boasting more than 600 ponies.
Chrysler's ace in its sleeve has now been spied testing, with a number of Hellcat-equipped Challengers running the potent new engine both in more urbanized areas and under the sun of Death Valley. The hoods on these testers have been raised to accommodate the engine, and that camouflage over the fascias of these prototypes is there to hide a larger air intake. We also note what appears to be a new split grille under wraps. As for power output, our spies are now suggesting a Viper-equalling 640 hp from the Hellcat-equipped cars.
My younger brother bought a Dodge Dart earlier this summer. It's a basic SXT, in Maximum Steel Metallic, with the 2.0-liter engine, a six-speed automatic transmission and not a whole lot else. Unfortunately, at the time, the Dart was one of the few cars in the compact class I'd never driven. I didn't know a lot about it, and therefore, didn't have a lot to say when he bought it. I think the words "based on an Alfa," popped out when I first saw it.
As it turns out, he's grown quite fond of the dark gray sedan, so it was with some degree of enthusiasm that I paid him a visit in this bright-orange Dart GT. I was excited to see what it was about the Dart that he enjoyed so much, despite my tester featuring a different engine, transmission and a lot more tech. After a week with the car, though, I must say: I don't quite see what all the fuss is about.
