Dodge Shelby Charger Rally Video
We rally a 86' Shelby Charger turbo that
we bought for 5 hay bails. This is the *first gen* charger before we
jumped it, cut the roof off, removed all the windows and re-painted it. Go
to www.thirtythree.org/shelbycharger for more video and pictures.
Shelby Dodge Tribute
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.
For more information on these 80's pocket rockets head over to www.turbo-mopar.com
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!
1978 Dodge Omni vs VW Rabbit Golf & Toyota & Datsun Chi Chi Rodrigeuz
This Dodge Promo film was made in the Fall of 1977 for the January 1978
Introduction of the Dodge Omni. Chrysler Corporation introduced it's first
world car'. This car was in production from Fall of 77 till Spring of 89.
They were sold as Dodge Omni, Plymouth Horizon, Chrysler Horizon in the UK
and the Simca Talbot Horizon in France. 165,000 cars were sold in the USA
in it's first year of production. The US version used a VW engine block
with Chrysler Parts attached which is kind of ironic considering that they
are comparing the car to the VW Rabbit (Golf) in this film. Chi Chi
Rodriguez does the intro for this film. Wink Martindale does the voice
over for this. These films were produced by the Roy Ross Advertising
agency for Chrysler. They were filmed in Palm Springs. Apologies for the
bad sound quality after about 3 minutes, it's a film that's over 30 years
GLHS Shelby Charger #742 of 1000 made
I drove this car today, and let me tell you, this is one of the most
under-rated cars every made. What a blast it was winding 2nd and 3rd gear
out! Make you wonder why they only made 1000.
