1970 Dodge Challenger with a 8.3 liter V10 from a Dodge Viper backed by a 6 speed Tremec and a dual disc clutch.
This thing sounds extremely aggressive with the help from Borla ATAK mufflers exiting out the rear of the car.

The front end is an aftermarket subframe that was modified to fit the big 8.3L Viper V10, along with tubular upper
& lower control arms, fully adjustable coilovers, power rack and pinion steering, and 6 piston Wilwood disc brakes.

A custom driveshaft connects the transmission to the fully independent rear suspension.

The rear end of the car is totally custom fabricated. The frame rails that come up along the inner wheel wells were
replaced with a custom-built tubular chassis to accept the rear subframe from a 392 SRT8 Challenger. So now, the
completely independent rear end (suspension, differential, & brakes) from an SRT8 Challenger bolts right into a
1970 Challenger and you have a car that can drive and handle great. It also has coilovers in the rear and the
Brembo disc brakes that came on the SRT. The front and rear subframes are connected by square tubing to stiffen the
body for added stability and strength to help handle the power.

The body looks great in midnight black paint but does have imperfections from age and use, but it hasn't been built
up as a show car. Rear inner wheel openings were trimmed to fit larger tires on 20" wheels. Has a T/A hood and rear
spoiler. The vinyl gator top is original to the car and in good shape. The floors are also in good shape and the
trunk pan is new. Black interior is clean and it has a pistol grip shifter to control the Tremec 6 speed

List of items I think need done before it is a ready to enjoy rod:
Install new steering column, wiring harness, dash, and gauges.
Install a brake booster.
Replace clutch master/slave cylinder setup.

Dodge Dart falls short of Consumer Reports Recommended, Caddy XTS and Lincoln MKS, too

Thu, 22 Nov 2012

The Dodge Dart, Cadillac XTS and Lincoln MKS all failed to earn a "Recommended" rating from Consumer Reports. When it came to the compact Dart, the organization's testers thought the vehicle offered a quiet cabin, solid-feeling chassis and nimble suspension, but the new model ultimately fell short of the coveted rating due to powertrain issues. The institute's reviewers found the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine to be underpowered and noted "drivability issues" when the available turbocharged 1.4-liter four was paired with the optional dual-clutch transmission (some of our editors disliked it paired with the six-speed manual). CR also dinged the latter powerplant for sounding "raspy." For what it's worth, we think the forced-induction engine offers an excellent and playful exhaust note, but that's just us.
As for the XTS, CR lauded the car for its luxurious cabin, but the vehicle's experience was dulled by its finicky CUE infotainment interface. Overall, the big Cadillac scored much higher than its cross-town rival from Lincoln. While testers found the American luxury sedan to offer a quiet ride and quality fit and finish, they felt the MKS delivered a "cramped driving position, ungainly handling, uncomposed ride, and limited visibility." Ouch. At the end of the day, both cars fell short of rivals from Japan, Germany and Korea. Check out the full press release below with more details, along with CR's musings on the Chevrolet Spark and Lexus ES.

NHTSA probing Ram recall pace, communication

Tue, 28 Oct 2014

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced that it's looking into Chrysler Group's handling of a pair of recalls affecting roughly one million Ram pickup trucks. Reuters is reporting that the regulatory agency is focusing on the availability (or lack thereof) of parts and "poor communications" from the automaker in its investigation.
"Customers have been advised in accordance with the regulations governing recalls," Chrysler spokesman Eric Mayne told Reuters via email. "We are continually replenishing our supply of replacement parts. Chrysler Group regrets any inconvenience our customers may have experienced."
NHTSA disagrees, arguing that the recalls, which affect 972,000 trucks from 2003 to 2012, are being delayed by the lack of parts.

Redonkulous Dodge Charger is ridin' high

Wed, 18 Sep 2013

We're a bit hazy on the styling of this particular donk, which was recently spotted hashing about by HotCarsTV at the Southern Heritage Classic Car show in Memphis. Sporting a dope paint job and some wheels that make a blunt statement about what the driver enjoys, it's a unique take on the popular customizing trend.
The owner may be kiefing it real with the theme on this Dodge Charger, but when your car looks like this, it's easy to weed out from the crowd. Chronic police stops must also make it a pain to drive on a regular basis, though. Even with the big wheels, we bet the driver still finds time to light 'em up. Take a look down below for a brief video of this outrageous mean green machine on the road.
