Jeep enjoys giving it’s CJ/YJ/TJ/JK lineup special editions. Some are mere paint and decals while others incorporate various engine and option combinations (generally combined with paint and decals). Following in the footsteps of the Renegade, the Golden Eagle, the Levi, Jamboree, Laredo, Sahara and Rubicon, to name but a few, comes Jeep’s latest offering; the Black Bear (Named after the off-road trail in CO, not the omnivore ).

The 6.4L powered Chrysler 300 SRT has returned in 2016 but only for the Australian marketplace. It’s interesting to note that, while SRT no longer stands alone in North America after having been merged with Dodge, the Australian 300 SRT displays no Chrysler emblems. Find more info at Left Lane.

One of the rumor mills favorite subjects is the return of the Barracuda nameplate. FCA’s recent trademark application to keep the Barracuda name in the family stoked the fire. Now, Motor Authority is reporting that a Barracuda (in convertible form no less) was shown at the FCA dealer group meeting in Las Vegas. Said to be slightly smaller than the Challenger, it is reported to be based on the new rear-wheel drive Alfa Romeo Giulia platform. (The photo below is of a previous concept car, not the car displayed in Las Vegas). Find more info at Motor Authority.

While it’s true that all good things must come to an end, only four years of Hellcats is not long enough! Find more info at Motor Authority.
Gong on the block in September is this 1970 Plymouth Cuda 440 Six Pack with only 5644 miles. The bulk of that, 4000 miles, were put on the car from 1970 to 1983!
