Hooniverse found this Viper race car on Craigslist. This car was actually a prototype built thru a partnership with Chrysler and, upon seeing the result, Chrysler decided to take the program in-house and created the Viper Competition Coupe! The car was reportedly stored from 2002 until 2014. Find a great write-up in the Craigslist ad. More pics after the jump!
Bangshift found this mint Dodge pickup on eBay that’s reported to have only 70 miles on it. Such crazy low mileage vehicles are generally priced very optimistically but the owner of this truck is asking….ready for it…$33,000! He does have a defense for the apparent high price though. “Auto manufactures must make new vehicles each year to keep higher prices. The have to keep depreciating older vehicles. For this reason the gap widens each years. The “Blue Book” was invented by auto manufactures as a convenience for them to create this “FARCE”. How did we miss that?Need another reason? “Try special ordering a 2015 model with wing windows, – NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!”. Where’s my check book? Follow the eBay auction here. More pics after the jump.
Insert Kowalski joke. And don’t mess with Nissan Quest drivers, apparently.
Or anyway, that’s according to U.S. News & World Report.
“In addition to being a fully capable full-size pickup truck, reviewers say the 1500 has the smoothest ride in the class and first-class cabin materials that make it feel like a luxury car,” said Jamie Page Deaton, Managing Editor – U.S. News Best Cars. “The Ram 1500 also has an available diesel engine with plenty of grunt for towing, as well as great fuel economy.”
Sounds about right to us.
Now here’s a practical alternative. And we have a grainy burnout video after the jump!
Back in October 2013, we brought you word of a plan by Bangshift and Hot Rod Chassis and Cycle to build a pro touring style 1964 Plymouth Valiant – Violent Valiant. That plan has become a reality. The car is not 100% finished but we think they certainly made good on their plan. Find more info at Street Legal TV. More pics and video after the jump!
There are sleepers and then there are sleepers! This wolf in oxidized clothing spent most of it’s life in the salty air of Hawaii. The new owner dropped in a replacement Hemi, fixed up some mechanical bits and….that’s about it. He drives it regularly, races it and beats back crowds at car shows. Find more info at Hot Rod.
