Here is a 1942 dodge powerwagon WC truck that I use hauling my hay wagon. It started life as a military vehicle open cab truck. It is 4 wheel drive and it does work. It is equiped with the 4:89 gears both front and rear. I installed a closed cab from a 1947 dodge truck and a homemade 6 foot by 6 foot flatbed. This truck is not stock but modifiied with the following: The engine is a Chevrolet 350 Small block bored .030 with a RV cam and roller rockers. Sitting on top is an Elderbrock carb. and intake.There are two electric fans in front of the original radiator to keep it cool aswell as a transmission cooler to keep the trans. cool. It has side pipe mufflers mounted behind the cab as stacks. It has electronic ignition and a 350 turbo automatic transmission with shift kit tied to the original single speed transfer case. I reinstalled the original hand parking brake back on it when doing the conversion.I installed power brakes(the booster and master cylinder are off a 1997 dodge 1500) on the truck with disc. brakes on the front (1978 chevrolet calipers and rotors)and used the original 14 inch drum brakes on the rear. It also has power steering but the steering is a little loose and leaking from the gear box. The steering linkages are from a M37 military truck.I machined a custom dash cluster and used 1950's dodge passenger car gauges(they are not hooked up). The seats are from a 1991 honda crx and aren't mounted down. It has a 11 gallon fuel cell mounted under the back of the bed with an access through the bed. The battery box is also under the bed behind the cab.The tachometer works as well as the 1942 GMC heater box and the roll out windshield. The head lights and tail lights work aswell as do the blackout lights although the blackout lights aren't hooked up.The tires are about worn out and the driverside outer rear tire has a bad valve stem so it doesn't hold air for very long. This is not a new truck it does have age on it as it is a 71 year old truck.There is the usual rust associated with a truck this old. There aren't any turn signals on it as it isn't street legal.This truck doesn't have a title and is for sell as is. I reserve the right to cancel this auction at any time as I also have it forsale localy. Winning bidder is responsible for pick up and transporting it. I require $1000.00 deposit within 24 hours of auction end and full payment Required within 7 days of auction close.

What's not to love about crowdsourcing? This idea, after all, has given us Kickstarter as well Local Motors, but automakers are starting to use the social platform to sell more cars (or just drum up a little PR). Both Dodge and Hyundai have used "crowd-funding" recently, and while Automotive News is reporting that neither has racked up big sales with this gimmick, both automakers are pleased with the attention.

For Hyundai, it teamed up with website Motozuma.com to help customers crowdsource money for a down payment, and the automaker matched this amount up to $500. Last year, this helped Hyundai sell an extra 1,600 units, a fraction of its total 2012 sales. That figure is far larger than Dodge fared with the Dodge Dart Registry - it netted only two sales and a small number of individual options. This registry did help University of Southern California fraternity crowdsource $18,000 to buy a Dart for a local Meals on Wheels, however. Despite the low sales figures, Dodge and Hyundai are considering their crowdsourcing programs a success since it helped them connect with younger buyers.
Before social media ever existed, if automotive enthusiasts wanted to be noticed or recognize other fans, they joined a car club. For Dodge muscle car lovers from 1968 through 1971, that group was known as the Scat Pack. Just like the Charger, Challenger and Dart nameplates, it looks like the Scat Pack could be getting a resurrection by Chrysler.

Automotive News is reporting that Chrysler recently renewed its trademark on the Scat Pack name, and while this is in no way a guarantee that the name will return, AN talked to Tim Kuniskis, Dodge President and CEO, who stoked the fire a little more. In the article, Kuniskis said that the name is "a very important part of our history" and added that "we like the whole idea of having a Scat Pack of cars." Scat Pack models were identified by their bumblebee stripes and helmet-wearing bumblebee logo, and the idea of a modern Scat Pack doesn't seem all that outlandish in light of recent vehicles like the Charger SRT Super Bee and the Ram 1500 Rumble Bee Concept.
What do you think, is this a cool idea, or is it just an unwelcome bit of nostalgia? Have you say in Comments.
Dodge has officially unveiled the most powerful vehicle to ever wear the Challenger name - the SRT Hellcat - complete with over 600 horsepower courtesy of a supercharged, 6.2-liter Hemi V8. It will be offered alongside the 485-hp Challenger SRT.
The new, force-induced V8 isn't just the most powerful ever fitted to the Challenger, it's the most powerful eight-cylinder Chrysler Group has ever built. Power figures aren't finalized, so expect to see "over 600 hp" bandied about quite a lot. That fury will be channeled through either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic. Yes, over 600 ponies through an eight-speed auto. So far, the only vehicle we know of that delivers more output through that many gears is the as-yet untested Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Sadly, we don't have performance metrics just yet, although if this thing can't crack four seconds to 60 miles per hour, we'll be pretty surprised.
As is the theme nowadays, the 2015 Challenger SRT features a number of driving modes, governing power output, shift speeds for the 8AT, steering effort, traction control settings and suspension settings. There are three pre-programmed options - Default, Sport and Track - and a Custom mode that allows drivers to mix and match to their heart's content.
