Dodge Charger Back to Life (Burnout)
Heres a video i made of the restoration and modification of a 1972 Dodge
1: "That burnout sucked, why did you use oil?"
1: I apologize i know its kind of lame LOL but i had just bought the tires
when i made the video and i need them to last as long as possible cuz they
are not cheap. This car can burn in dry and stay there. I decided to use
oil to make smoke out of the oil instead of the tires.
2: "Why Automatic Transmission?"
2: Because this is my everyday car and manual transmissions in classic cars
are very unpractical in traffic, when i can have this car as my weekend car
i will make it a manual.
3: "You Must Be a Rich Kid, This was made with your fathers money"
3: No, Hell No. I bought this car for 3000 bucks in very bad condition and
worked very hard everyday after school with my own hands in it for about 2
years and put all my life savings into it.
4: "What Engine does it have?"
4: It has a slightly modified 360 engine with long headers, manifold,
crankshaft, piston heads, an Edelbrock 4 throat carb, sparkplugs and

this is Nick suckow's car in September 2008 before it was stolen. If you
have any information about this dodge charger please let me know.
http://www.weau.com/home/headlines/33732019.html# Back in 1984,
high-schooler Nick Suckow bought himself a '68 Dodge Charger. He was gonna
fix it up and roar down the road. Nick was born a gearhead. A hot rod. From
the first time he drove, he drove hard. The redline was always at hand.
When he joined the Army out of high school and shipped to Germany he got
hooked on the autobahn, where you could ease over to the left lane, stomp
the foot-feed flat, and shoot, they just let you go. "Fast," Nick likes to
say, "isn't the same as reckless." All that racing around, and then life
served up a grim little joke: The day Nick Suckow wrecked - the day his
life changed forever, the last day he ever stood on his own two feet - he
was going 35 miles per hour with his seatbelt on. He'd been married two
weeks. He and his wife were on their way home from their Wisconsin
honeymoon, making the run back to Texas in Nick's Gran Prix. They were
towing a rusted-out Ford Bronco - Nick always had his eye out for a cheap
beater, and he had found one up north. On a rough stretch of road Nick
crawled in the Bronco to keep it straight. The front tire hooked a pothole.
The tie rod snapped. The seat belt broke. He landed in the ditch. The
Bronco landed on his neck. Nick says he remembers the sun in his eyes. Then
the darkness closing in. A lot of years, then. Hospitals. Home. Hospitals.
The marriage ended. Back to Wisconsin. Rehab, and more hospitals. The speed
demon, not going anywhere fast. But eventually he had them drag that
Charger out. Arranged to get it in the shop. Whenever he had a little
money, he'd get some work done. "They whittled away at it," he says. "I
told my mom, if I die, dump my ashes in the fuel tank, and I'll go down the
drag strip one last time." Seventeen years. Seventeen years of learning how
to live from the neck up. Seventeen years of whittling. Hed show you the
latest pictures - a quarter panel here, a shot of primer there, a couple
tires. He'd get down to the shop, supervise in person when he could. He
couldn't run the wrenches, but he could run the show. He'd sneak out for a
little speed fix sometimes - once a paraplegic friend strapped Nick's chair
to a motorcycle sidecar and they blew down the road, one good pair of arms
between'em. Nick says it was good to feel the wind on his face. On a sunny
day in October of 2006, Nick Suckow's pals helped him slide from one set of
wheels into another. They strapped him in the passenger side, and you could
see the anticipation on his face, even behind the mirrored shades. The car
cruised out of the lot, and then picked up speed, the blower making a Mad
Max whine as the wheels warmed to the road. After a nice easy ride, the
Charger pulled to a stop on an isolated little stretch of blacktop. There
was a quiet moment, before the driver wound that 426 fuel-injected blown
Hemi up tight. Then Nick Suckow gave the nod and went fishtailing down the
blacktop on a journey that had never really ended.

1969 Dodge Charger True R/T
Correction on our video I do not believe it is a white hat special.
This is a complete Matching numbers California 1969 Charger R/T. This would
have been a White Hat Special on the R/T's if they would have had it early
in production. This is a Stunning unmolested R4 Red, R/T 440 4 Barrel Auto.
White Top and Interior with White R/T Stripe. The engine and transmission
are the original matching numbers to this car. This car was ordered new in
New Mexico and spent the rest in Sunny Southern California. It is a real
nice optioned car. Air Conditioning. Power steering. Power Brakes. Am
radio. Tinted glass. Bucket seats and console. 14" Magnum 500's. Manual
door mirror. Dual Exhaust with tips.
This is a unmolested always cared for R/T. Always adult owned and
maintained. This car just went thru a good freshening up. New seat covers.
New Top. New brakes. New engine and trans. All mechanicals that needed
replaced were done or rebuilt. There are no miles on this car since this.
The car had all the original engine components. The radiator was recored.
All new water pump etc. Engine comp was completely detailed. All new
restored wiper motor etc. This car has had one older repaint that still
holds well. The build sheet is still in good shape. Mostly there. This car
retains all of the original sheet metal and trunk, floors etc. A Charger
R/T in this condition is a rare find. This car runs and drives like new and
is tight and fast. You will be hard pressed to find one another on like
this. This car had the original owner until 1984 who he then sold it to his
sister in law. That is who the car was purchased from. I have had a lot of
69 Chargers and I love these that were not restored or put away hard and
wet. The sister in law babied this car just like the first owner. I took
out the Build sheet just a few months ago. You can be the next person to
baby it. Good luck on owning this fine example of Chrysler Styling History
and performance. Power Steering, Power Drum Brakes, A/C car but
inoperable. Call Tom today this will not last very few in this shape left
around. Tom 248-974-9513
1970 Dodge Supercharger Show Car History Video Plus DRIVING www.raffim.com
I owned the Dodge Supercharger Roadster
for 15 years from 1983-1998. In that time I participated in car shows and
met some of the most interesting people in the Mopar community. I never
had a boring drive in this car. Even though it barely fit in my garage,
there was always room for it in the three states I lived in throughout my
ownership. The Supercharger has been all
over the US in various shows and once I drove it up to Canada, enjoying a
thrilling drive home in the pouring rain.
Today the Supercharger sits in enclosed
storage somewhere on the East Coast. It is too valuable to drive and enjoy
the way I did when I owned it, but it sure was a great car to jump in and
take for drives up the Pacific Coast Highway, jaunts to work on sunny
Fridays in PA, and cruise ins on late summer nights down in So Cal.
I made this video for fun one afternoon in PA, just outside the
neighborhood where I lived. And yes, that is me driving, narrating, and
filming all at the same time.
Enjoy the ride!!
1985 Dodge RAM Cummins Diesel Prototype - Dodge Diesel Truck History Lesson
Way back in the mid 1980's Dodge started working with Cummins on an idea:
to put a large displacement and very powerful diesel engine inside a pickup
truck. The end result was this prototype you see here. The 1985 Dodge RAM
350 is a 1-ton truck with a 5.9 liter 6BT inline-6 cylinder Cummins turbo Diesel Engine. Well fast forward 25 years
and RAM trucks are once again equipped with a 3.0 liter V-6 that can be
found on the 1500-series of truck. Back in the day the 5.9 liter put out
400 lb-ft. of torque vs the current 3.0 liter that makes 420 lb-ft. of
torque. So this new engine is half the size and makes more torque which
gives you an idea just how far diesel technology has come in the past 25
