Lady Luck was on our side last week as the Legendary Team made its way to
the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea, Michigan.
An all night drive through a snow storm saw us pull into the proving
grounds parking lot at the crack of dawn. It was cold and overcast but no
sign of rain or snow. It looked like the weather would cooperate, the next
hurdle was having MOPAR engineers check out the Cuda. The car passed with
flying colors, testament to the sweat and dedication put in by everyone at
Legendary over the last year.
Then it was off to the black lake for some real world handling tests in
preparation for the 4.75 mile oval and a crack a breaking the 200 mph mark.
Both the Cuda and the Enzo look impressive on the track but once the sun
began to come out late that morning the setting was perfect for our high
speed run. I think we captured some spectacular footage of a once in a life
After a brief mishap, when the Cuda lost its windshield trim at 190 mph,
Peter was ready to go. We could hear the Cuda coming long before we could
see her, as the cars went by they sounded like jet fighters. Top speed 208
mph with still some leftwe did it!

I thought you'd like a look at this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner in action.
It's powered by a 383 V8, with an Edelbrock intake, 4 BBL carb, coated
headers, and Air Grabber induction. All the power is being funneled through
a hurst shifted four-speed manual back to an 8 3/4 rear. This car runs out
strong and it's in absolutely immaculate condition. It's as clean in the
engine bay and underneath the car as it is on the outside. The interior
looks showroom new as well. This car is a proven show winner as well. I hop
you find it interesting....thanks for watching!

2008 SEMA: Dodge Challenger Convertible
MORE SEMA INFO:
HIGH SPRINGS, Florida — Dodge has no plans to offer a Challenger
convertible, which provides Coach Builders Ltd. an open shot at muscle car
enthusiasts looking for an alternative to the popular Ford Mustang drop top. Now in final
preparations for its official debut at the upcoming 2008 SEMA Show, the
Coach Builders Dodge Challenger convertible will be shown alongside the
company's Chrysler 300C and Cadillac CTS convertible conversions.
Coach Builders' Larry Moran told Inside Line that production of the
Challenger convertible will begin on November 15, and that the company is
"already taking deposits for getting a place in line." The Challenger
convertible conversion is priced at $16,000, Moran said. A 2009 Dodge
Challenger SRT8 currently costs $41,695 including shipping charges and
gas-guzzler tax, so expect to pay nearly $58,000 for open-air Challenger
Moran also says that "custom interiors, performance options and wheels and
tires" will be offered, but the details "are not firmed up yet." The car
that will debut at SEMA was fortified with a Vortech Supercharger that bumps the 6.1-liter Hemi V8 to
560 horsepower and
510 pound-feet of torque. It rides slightly lower on a KW coil-over
suspension kit and 22-inch Foose Challenger wheels wrapped in Nitto tires.
The convertible conversion reinforces the Challenger with strut bars hidden
inside the trunk instead of a visible roll bar, and the acrylic polyester
cloth hydraulic top is padded between the structure and the exterior fabric
for sound and temperature insulation. A heated glass rear window and
matching fabric headliner are also included.
