Challenger New vs. Old: Vanishing Point Revisited
"Our sole Challenger has just broken the ring of evil the deep blue meanies
have so righteously wrought — get through 'em baby, get through 'em." —
Super Soul, Vanishing Point 1971
It happens deep in the Nevada desert, just past Austin. On a long, straight
section of road with nothing to lose, our friends in the white 1970 Dodge
Challenger R/T finally put the hammer down. At once, the rawness and purity
of Kowalski's ride pulverizes the well-insulated interior of our 2008 Dodge
Challenger SRT8, shredding the peace inside the modern car's cockpit with
the same brute force Kowalski used to pierce a hole in the cool desert air
38 years ago. Even with my right foot buried, I see nothing but taillights
until they disappear into the desert.
In these few brief seconds, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is clearly
defined by its soft edges and quiet Exhaust. Manufacturers don't let us feel cars
raw and unfiltered anymore. Hammering down a desert road with a thin-rimmed
steering wheel and pistol-grip shifter — that's raw. Four hundred and
forty cubic inches and a four-speed — that's raw. Powerslides unhampered
by electronic intervention — that's raw.
In 1970, when Kowalski drove this very road — U.S. Highway 50 through
Nevada — he felt it. And it was raw.
2008 Dodge Viper ACR: From L.A. to Bonneville
CHECK OUT THE VIPER AC-R ARTICLE:
We're about to make our first high-speed run in the still-black 2008 Dodge
Viper ACR when the old guy pulls up to our makeshift pit. He looks exactly
like the guy you'd expect to meet in the middle of the Bonneville Salt
Flats, like a worn-out Hank Williams, Jr.
Over the deafening cackle of his Cummins-powered diesel pickup, he yells,
"What's you boys doin'?"
"We're going to make a few runs in this Viper here."
"Yeah, how fast will she run?"
"We don't really know. Maybe 190 or so."
By the expression on his face, it's obvious ol' Hank has figured out that
we have no idea what we're doin'. He knows we're just a bunch of yahoos
with a fast car. He takes a good long look at the big winged Viper, then he
shuts off the truck's engine so we can hear him better.
"When you're going fast, the slightest gust of wind can flip you," he says.
"That's why we only ran early in the morning when the air was calm."
We look up at the mid-afternoon sun and wonder what we've gotten ourselves
"And make sure you don't run out of room," he continues. "You think you
have all the space in the world, then Floating Mountain is suddenly right
in your face. I remember when I went for 300 mph back in 1978; my chutes
didn't open and I almost didn't get her stopped." He runs his fingers
through a white beard. "Didn't make 300 either," he adds. "Only 280."
Great. We thought this Bonneville thing was as easy as holding our foot
down until the speedometer stopped moving. Now Mr. Monday Night has us
imagining our $100,000 Viper sliding across the Utah desert on its roof.

Best Car Chase EVER
From the comedy 'Short Time' with Dabney Coleman, Matt Frewer and Teri
Garr. Overall, considering all factors, I find this the best car chase
scene ever filmed.
NOTE: Coleman's car here is NOT a Diplomat. The grille in this red car says
Plymouth. As the chase was filmed in Canada where the Plymouth Gran Fury
was sold as the 'Caravelle' from 1978-1982, and as the 'Caravelle Salon'
from 1983-89, it might be a Caravelle. But the fender emblems were removed,
so we can't say for certain that it isn't a US-market Gran Fury.

Dodge Charger 1968 blown hemi
this is Nick suckow's car in September 2008 before it was stolen. If you
have any information about this dodge charger please let me know.
http://www.weau.com/home/headlines/33732019.html# Back in 1984,
high-schooler Nick Suckow bought himself a '68 Dodge Charger. He was gonna
fix it up and roar down the road. Nick was born a gearhead. A hot rod. From
the first time he drove, he drove hard. The redline was always at hand.
When he joined the Army out of high school and shipped to Germany he got
hooked on the autobahn, where you could ease over to the left lane, stomp
the foot-feed flat, and shoot, they just let you go. "Fast," Nick likes to
say, "isn't the same as reckless." All that racing around, and then life
served up a grim little joke: The day Nick Suckow wrecked - the day his
life changed forever, the last day he ever stood on his own two feet - he
was going 35 miles per hour with his seatbelt on. He'd been married two
weeks. He and his wife were on their way home from their Wisconsin
honeymoon, making the run back to Texas in Nick's Gran Prix. They were
towing a rusted-out Ford Bronco - Nick always had his eye out for a cheap
beater, and he had found one up north. On a rough stretch of road Nick
crawled in the Bronco to keep it straight. The front tire hooked a pothole.
The tie rod snapped. The seat belt broke. He landed in the ditch. The
Bronco landed on his neck. Nick says he remembers the sun in his eyes. Then
the darkness closing in. A lot of years, then. Hospitals. Home. Hospitals.
The marriage ended. Back to Wisconsin. Rehab, and more hospitals. The speed
demon, not going anywhere fast. But eventually he had them drag that
Charger out. Arranged to get it in the shop. Whenever he had a little
money, he'd get some work done. "They whittled away at it," he says. "I
told my mom, if I die, dump my ashes in the fuel tank, and I'll go down the
drag strip one last time." Seventeen years. Seventeen years of learning how
to live from the neck up. Seventeen years of whittling. Hed show you the
latest pictures - a quarter panel here, a shot of primer there, a couple
tires. He'd get down to the shop, supervise in person when he could. He
couldn't run the wrenches, but he could run the show. He'd sneak out for a
little speed fix sometimes - once a paraplegic friend strapped Nick's chair
to a motorcycle sidecar and they blew down the road, one good pair of arms
between'em. Nick says it was good to feel the wind on his face. On a sunny
day in October of 2006, Nick Suckow's pals helped him slide from one set of
wheels into another. They strapped him in the passenger side, and you could
see the anticipation on his face, even behind the mirrored shades. The car
cruised out of the lot, and then picked up speed, the blower making a Mad
Max whine as the wheels warmed to the road. After a nice easy ride, the
Charger pulled to a stop on an isolated little stretch of blacktop. There
was a quiet moment, before the driver wound that 426 fuel-injected blown
Hemi up tight. Then Nick Suckow gave the nod and went fishtailing down the
blacktop on a journey that had never really ended.
