This is a short video dedicated to the forgotten Shelby cars and their turbocharged Mopar siblings.
The photos were taken by me at the annual SDAC convention, that was held in Chicagoland this year.

Note: The beginning dialogue is Shelby talking about a Supercharged Charger; I couldn't seem to find some useable audio that pertained to the use of the turbochargers in the numbered cars that followed... But it still has its merits.
Thanks for watching!
This is a tribute video I made about the 1980's turbo Dodges. The video is also under my
StreetFire account (85CharGLHS) if you'd rather watch it there. I hope you
