Ricci Cavallaro took a bone-stock 2015 Challenger Hellcat to Pittsburgh Raceway Park, swapped out the OEM rubber for Nitto NT05 tires measuring 305/45/r18, and made a 10.97 pass on his first run! Two subsequent runs were also in the 10s. Read more at Torque News. Videos of his first two runs after the jump!
BarnFinds spied this 383 Charger on eBay. The seller admits to some work being required but then also introduces it as an easy restoration. No reserve bidding has already passed $4,400. Now, how about that Road Runner in the background? Follow the eBay bidding here. More pics after the jump!
BangShift has alerted us to one incredible barn find. Five, count ’em, five Mopars! While the “barn” is more of a storage facility, with concrete walls and floor, that’s nothing but good news as far as the condition of the finds; two 1970 Chargers, a 1971 340 Cuda, a Super Bee and a Dart Swinger! Find the Craigslist ad here. More pics after the jump!
It’s a great week for 1970 Hemi Cuda fans! This one is part of the Brother’s collection and is the latest featured car on Muscle Car of the Week. Unfortunately, thanks to Mopar Action’s Rick Ehrenberg, I can’t seem to see past the missing behind-the-grille blackout treatment! Video after the jump!
So your significant other refuses to let you buy a Hellcat. “The constant whining is crazy!” You’re not sure if they mean you or the Dodge. If you have to compromise, tell them you’ll settle for the lowly, normally aspirated Charger Scat Pact. Autoweek does a short review of the Scat Pack. “…how does it drive? About how you’d think 485 hp propelling 4,400 pounds would drive—it gets up and goes.” Read the review here. More pics after the jump!
Take one Angela Dorian, 1968 Playboy Playmate of the Year, add a Playmate Pink AMC AMX, Roman Polanski, Charles Manson and a Walther PPK used in a murder attempt and you got one heck of a story for the Saturday morning car show! Jay Leno gets the whole story from the car’s second owner, Mark Melvin. Video after the jump!
This could be the Holy Grail of muscle cars; a virtually unused, unmolested 1970 Hemi Cuda. Purchased new with the intentions of being a strip car, it went into hibernation after the owner passed away shortly thereafter. This E-body is a museum piece that’s trading hands like a Picasso. Sold for half a million at Barrett in 2007, it’s now going across the auction block again at Mecum next month. Find more info at Barn Finds. More pics after the jump!
Roadkill is now sponsored by Dodge. Hmmm. Watch their latest episode and tell us what you think. Video after the jump!
Big Muscle gives us a tour of one mean looking A body. Video after the jump!
