1978 Dodge W200 Custom 4x4. Automatic with the 400 engine. Dana spicer 44 & Dana spicer 60. This truck belonged to an eccentric WWll vet, (who has since passed), who had this vehicle prepared as his "the end is here, lets get out of Dodge" vehicle. He had the back of this truck packed full with the things he would need when he saw the mushroom cloud over Boise. The truck just sat in covered storage most of the time, ready to go. There are thousands of dollars in receipts for things he had done to this truck, for whatever reason. He had a heavy duty radiator put in, overload leaf springs added to the rear, a two stage shift kit put in the transmission, new exhaust system, trailer brakes, heavy duty rear tow bumper and more. The truck is sitting on new Michelin 10 ply tires mounted on beautiful chromed steel rims and has 2 fairly new (95%+tread) mounted 8 ply Uniroyal tires in the back for spares along with two extra Dodge rims. The body is really straight with the exception of two small dings just behind the passenger door, kind of visable in the pictures. There are minor gravel chips and scratches you would expect to see on a truck that has been driven this many miles. (I am presently driving this truck occasionally and expect the mileage to be around 32,000 by the end of September). He installed a heavy duty rear tow bumper (the original chrome bumper comes with the truck). The canopy was built and purchased in Boise; it is in exceptional condition for its age, is wired, has working lights inside and comes with two locks on the canopy door. The whole back door wall of the canopy unhinges and is removable if you have a need to carry something large. With the condition of the bed I have to assume this canopy has been on the truck pretty much since new. The interior of the truck is hard to believe. Its got a working real classy :) push button am radio. The glass is perfect. There is no a/c. There are a few very small places on the truck that look like touch up paint but I don't know. The following description and pictures are some of what was left in the vehicle when I bought it. I'm not listing everything, but most of what comes with it is listed.
In no particular order: spare water hoses, 2 thermostats, 3 distributer caps, rotors, condensers, points, heavy duty equalizer hitch, 3 carburetor rebuild kits, 2 five gallon gas cans (full), 2 hydraulic jacks, 2 lug wrenches, 1 case of quarts of 30 wt Pennzoil, 1 large box containing brake fluid, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, 2 gallons of anti freeze and more, 3 control modules, jumper cables, 1 dip stick, 2 sets of spark plug wires, lots of spare belts, upper and lower radiator hoses, 3 radiator caps, Dodge service manual, carburetor service manual, 3 oil filters, 1 air filter, 3 alternators, 1 starter, 1 fuel pump, 3 fan clutches, spare fuses, various packs of bulbs, rolls of wire and I'm sure there is more.If you would like to see more pictures or come see the truck, let me know...Rick...208-866-1121...NO texting please.

Last year, Chrysler announced it would be offering more than 150 Mopar parts and accessories on the 2013 Dodge Dart, and we got a look at some of these parts firsthand at the Chicago Auto Show. Showing off all the optional parts at once would surely create a gaudy monstrosity, so Chrysler chose to equip this particular Dart GT with just a handful of Mopar goodies, which still gave the car a nice and tasteful custom look that is available straight from the dealership (and with a full warranty, too).

Decked out in a factory color called Header Orange Clear Coat - also a very appropriate show car hue - this car added exterior styling parts such as the vented, carbon fiber hood, the bolt-on front chin spoiler and a matte black decklid spoiler. Looking inside the car, you'd think the red-accented interior is part of the Mopar parts bin, too, but this is actually what the standard Dart GT cabin will look like when it goes on sale.
Students and teachers at a Washington community college are up in arms following an order from Chrysler that it must destroy the pre-production Dodge Viper that was donated to the school's automotive technology program ten years ago.

The Viper in question is said to be the fourth off the production line, based on its VIN, and has had its emissions controls disabled, allowing its ten-cylinder engine to produce 600 horsepower, according to a report from Yahoo! Autos. As one of the first Vipers ever produced, the school's AT instructors claim it could be worth $250,000 in a museum, while a local news report purports that Jay Leno once tried to purchase the car, but the sale was prevented by Chrysler.
As pointed out by our friends at Autobytel, though, there are a lot of things in this story that don't quite add up. Immediately noticeable from the news report embedded below - which shows the car at South Puget Sound Community College - is that the car in question is not a 1992 model. When the Viper went on sale in 1992, it was only available as an RT/10 with a (flimsy) soft top, like the red car shown above. But the car featured in the report from KING5 News (inset image) is clearly a hardtop Viper GTS, which didn't enter production until 1996. And even if, as reported by a local newspaper, the hardtop featured is a prototype, it doesn't explain the lack of another iconic feature of the first Vipers - their distinctive side pipes. This kind of pokes holes in the school's argument that this is the fourth Viper to ever roll down the line. At best, this appears to be a pre-production Viper GTS.
This is the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, and we're sure that by now, you know its stats, including over 600 horsepower from its 6.2-liter, supercharged V8. What, pray tell, does that blown engine sound like, though?
At least judging on the sonic strength of this video, it's very, very dirty. Honestly, it sounds unlike anything that's come out of the Chrysler Group in a long time, if ever. It's loud, almost brutally so, with a bark that few road-going V8s can match.
Of course, you should be the final judge here. Take a look and a listen at the two videos below, one of which comes from our friends at Cars.com that provides a nice look under the hood, and then let us know what you think of the Hellcat's singing voice in Comments.
