1970 dodge Challenger rusting away, left in weeds
saw this oneday driving someone home that lived way up in the back cuts of
New Homestead, and was shocked to see this classic up in the weeds. and
well this area is small and far from the city, cool place to live, still
has dirt roads, but after seeing the car, I started asking questions like
anyone like me would. found out car has been there for 30 years! and that
family won't sell, it was a loved ones car that lost their life to young,
and well family just couldn't let the car go to anyone, but sad story
behind it, I don't know all about it, #1 is don't go near it or touch, and
don't ask about it, they want to be left alone
It's just a car
Mr Honda Accord says about a 1970 Hemi Challenger: "Come on, It's just a
car." From the TV remake of "Vanishing Point."

Dodge Challenger Slow motion Wheelie
1974 Dodge Challenger Slomo Wheelie vid. Santa Pod 2010 eurofinals. By
Blackett Photography. Here the car is powered by a 572ci Wedge motor. Runs
mid 9's @ full weight (3850lb +). To make the caltracks work you need
plenty of front end lift, bump stops were removed and frames notched to get
almost 6 1/2 inches of travel. Something Chrysler never designed that
suspension for I'd guess. We've since improved the bump steer by replacing
parts and resetting the camber / castor as the front has aftermarket parts
and plenty of adjustment.
In reality it's difficut to fully eliminate without going to a strut type
front end, though some people appear to have done it on stock stuff, it
seems to be a common chrysler trait. Check out the superstock video's from
the '70s and most Mopars do it also check out my other real time wheelie
vids you see that the wobble lasts only a fraction of a second.
Thanks for the comments.
