The product of a high dollar, multi-year build, this incredible Mopar
pro-tourer wraps a 500 horsepower 3G Hemi and a
completely custom suspension in a custom leather interior and killer
Completed in early 2012, this super clean curve carver is the direct result
of what happens when a seasoned fabricator has an uncompromised vision,
major dedication and access to a six-figure bank account. See, the car's
creator already owned a killer Charger that was buff enough to pull down
sub 10-second passes on an NHRA-sanctioned drag strip, so he wanted to
build a second car that was a bit milder and quite different. Enter this
neon Plymouth, a project which quickly escalated from the restoration of a
fun cruiser into the creation of an outrageous driver's car.
Hoist this Plymouth's bright fiberglass hood and you'll find 6.1 liters of
naturally aspirated 3G Hemi bliss. Straight from the factory that popular
SRT8 powerplant produces an impressive 425 horsepower and 420 lb./ft.
of torque. And with the help of a custom tune by the folks at Bouchillon
Performance Engineering in Hanahan, South Carolina, its performance
transforms from wild to flat out wicked! Measuring in at roughly 372 cubic
inches, the big mill uses a revised block, forged internals, lighter
pistons and a cast aluminum intake to crank out a whopping 500 horsepower and 460 lb./ft.
of torque. And best of all, that's 500 horsepower that'll fire up
in any weather, last thousands of maintenance-free miles, and probably lay
waste to any old school muscle car that's brave enough to stage a
Behind the neo Hemi, a Hughes Performance A727 Torqueflite produces great
bite and hard launches. Out back, there's a fresh Moser Sure Grip rear end
that's equipped with moderate, pavement pounding gears. At the front of the
car, custom-mounted rack and pinion steering provides smooth turns and
quick reflexes. That rack is held off the ground by a first class double
A-arm suspension that's a product of Magnumforce upper control arms, two
inch drip spindles, fresh Aldan coil overs and modified Mancini lower
control arms. Holding the car's rear end off the ground is a Reilly
Motorsports triangulated four link set up that's equipped with new QA-1
coil over shocks. And at the corners of the chassis, custom Boze Alloy
wheels spin 235/55R18 front and 305/45R20 rear Yokohama Advan STs around
graphite gray spokes, satin-finished lips and yellow-trimmed center caps.
Open this B-Body's solid closing doors and take in its custom black
interior that, as an astute combination of serious hardware and modern
aesthetics, is the perfect place to spend jaunts like Hot Rod's famed Power
Tour. The first thing you'll notice is a pair of GS-1 touring buckets,
fitted with high quality RCI harnesses, that are so supportive they'll have
no problem living life 100 miles at a time. Between those seats, a custom
console anchors a B&M Pro Bandit shifter between two cup holders and a
remote controlled Sony CD player. At the front of that console, a clean
Just Dashes dash features snazzy white-faced gauges and a modern pushbutton
ignition switch. And in front of the driver, a three-spoke Momo steering
wheel spins a thick black rim around a shaved steering column.
Brutally fast and visually stunning, this awesome Plymouth perfectly
embodies the tried and true philosophy of pushing the envelope as far as
the arc will go. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more

71 Plymouth GTX Startup
1971 Plymouth GTX that I've been working on getting back on the road. We
got it as a "almost running" car. "Almost running" was somewhere between
very generous and flat out false. We've ended up replacing all the bushings
in the suspension and rebuilding the engine and the brakes. Now it's
getting to the point that it's driveable and hoo-boy is it a hoot. Always
fun to do the no tag, no muffler shakedown run :)
Here's some specs:
440cu (7.2L) V8 with 727 Torqeflite reverse manual valve body; 8 3/4 rear
end with 3.91 gearset. All going out to a pair of 15x10 Centerline rims
with BF Goodrich 295/50R15 tires. Still not sure if we're going to be
putting in the 4-speed or keeping the brutal automatic. Such a fun car. My
little camera can't capture the amount of noise this thing puts out. It
currently is just running around an old set of 2.5" pipes with no mufflers
that end somewhere under the rear seats.
Can't get enough Mopar!
Abandoned in Japan: An American Muscle-car graveyard
I came across this bunch of rusting, American Muscle-cars a while back.
There's classic Camaros, Mustangs (inc Mach 1) and a Trans-Am.
So sad to see them rotting away.

Triple Black Attack: 1970 440 6-Pack 'Cuda - /BIG MUSCLE
Each and every muscle car enthusiast has that one experience that has
helped define the way in which they view the automobile. For Northern
California's John Cross that experience came by way of riding in the back
of his cousins 1970 440 6-Pack Plymouth 'Cuda when he was a kid. It was a
car that provided him with memories, stories and of course, a goal - that
being, to one day own the very car which got his engine running all those
years ago. It's now 2012, 42 years after that first faithful ride in the
very 'Cuda you're about to see. This time however it resides in John's
garage, not his cousins, which can mean only one thing... Sometimes dreams
do come true.

1969 Dodge Coronet Superbee Driving
Had some footage, had some tunes, had to make a quick video of the Superbee
running around. Gotta love that mopar sound. I know I mixed in a clip of it
without the hood, when it has a hood before and after, but I couldn't help
it. She looks so good. Besides, cutting errors were par for the course back
in the 70's.
This 'Bee has a 440 Sixpack with liftoff hood, 4-speed tranny and a Dana
60/ 3.54:1 Surgrip rear end. It's also rocking 305/60D15 McCreary Roadstars
in the rear. They just barely fit but give the car much needed grip, and
that great view of giant meats on the back of a musclecar.
Music is from the movie "Vanishing Point" by "The J.B. Pickers. The only
way to get the music is to either order the out of print record, or watch
Vanishing Point. I'd go with the latter. It has to be one of the best car
films of all time.

Wind Tunnel Test: "43" 1971 Petty Superbird
Gary & Pam Beineke built this race version G-Series Superbird-stable mate
to the K&K Daytona-a next generation, 'what-if' tribute to Petty and the
'71 NASCAR season that never was.
They took the car to Mooresville NC "Race City USA" to test in the A2 Wind
Tunnel. Although a full scale version was never built in 1971 Chrysler
performed wind tunnel development on a 3/8 scale model until NASCAR made a
rule change for the 71 season that would ban the wing cars from
competition. Gary Romberg is the technical director at AeroDyn & A2, and
also one of the original aerodynamicists that worked on the wing cars back
when they were developed at Chrysler. Notes and data from the 3/8 model
were donated to the Wing Warriors Car Club and the Beineke's built their
car based off data results from those wind tunnel tests in the 70's.
Romberg was on hand to see a project he worked on over 40 years ago get
built into a full scale version.
