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.
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."

The new Challenger vs. the World [S3 Ep.8-1]
Some of the biggest news to come down the automotive pipeline in a long
time is the fact that Dodge is making the Challenger again. But how does it
stack up against the legendary Challengers of old? Well, Stacey decided to
find out! First, by "grabbing" a Challenger in a most unorthodox way... and
then comparing it head-to-head with a 70'440 six-pack car. But that's not
all... Then Stacey decided to take the new car beyond the legend by
sticking on a Supercharger and really
blowing the doors off of the competition! If you are a Mopar nut, or have
just wondered what all the fuss was about concerning the new Challenger...
this is one show you've got to see!
Mad Max - Last V8 Interceptor Axle-hop Stop!
Met up with Justice, who runs Maxrockatansky.org and did a little bit of
filming near Lake Lewisville. Thought I'd throw in the axle-hop stop that
you see at the beginning of MM2: The Road Warrior. He doesn't throw it into
reverse, as many erroneously believe. It's this type of stop I demonstrate
