2014 SRT Viper GTS Anodized Carbon Edition at the LA Auto Show

Chrysler is on a bit of a roll with special editions. The latest is a metallic matte black and satin finished Viper GTS Anodized Carbon Edition (GTS ACE anyone?) giving it an even more sinister look. It features black chrome “Rattler” wheels accompanied by other unique exterior trim pieces and finishes. The only splash of color, orange, can be found on the calipers, the stitching and a few interior accents. It is limited to a run of just 50 vehicles. Look for it in a very few showroom floors in January. See more detail here at CarBuzz. More pics from the LA Auto Show after the jump!

My 4-Speed 1969 Dart GTS 340

The story starts in 1968 when a new 1969 Dart GTS, 340/4 speed car with a console tachometer is ordered up. By 1970 it is being raced with the 340/4 speed in it, and was repainted white and green with mags on it. In the early 1970s my grandfather ended up getting it and turning the car into a all out drag car with a mild 318 and 727. By the 2000s the car was retired and was a roller. A couple years back I ended up getting the roller and built a 1971 340 for it that is .30 over, 10.5:1cr, j headed (for now), .480 Cam Dynamics camshaft (for now). Future plans are to install a .590 Solid Roller camshaft along with a pair of ported and polished heads. More pics after the jump!

Reader’s Rides: William Robey’s 1969 Dodge Dart GTS

Check out William’s beautiful 4-speed Dart GTS out of Leesburg, Virginia. Here’s the word from William:

I have had the car for five years. The car was done when I  got it. I have had two other 1969s–one back in high school which was a 1969 Swinger with a 273 hi-pro in it. The  second we did a build with a 383 in it but builds are so time consuming so I was looking for one done to start driving and enjoying. Wish I had picture from last year car was setting on 50 yard line at Washington Redskin training camp. Sold a 1969 Chevy Nova and 1970 Chevelle 454 to get this one. Great move on my part car will never leave my hands. The car will sit and rust before kids even get it.

This was originally a 383 car but now has a 440 bored to 492. It has a hydraulic clutch and stainless steel exhaust. See more pics after the jump!
