Nick in Montreal has built another monster. This is the first Dyno test. When it's ready
they'll be dropping it into a '69 Charger 500. This motor will give it

LMC Super Cuda 200 MPH!
log onto www.legendarymotorcar.com to see photos of the build!
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!

dodge charger 1968 blown hemi
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.
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
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.
Classic 1968 Dodge Charger Races at Abandoned Racetrack - World's Fastest Car Show 9 Mobile
We take a classic 1968 Dodge Charger around the old Middle Georgia Raceway,
where Justin retraces the steps of former NASCAR greats including Bobby
Isaac, who on June 1, 1969 won in a Dodge Charger at an average of 73.7
miles an hour. With no seatbelts on an overgrown track, he's going to
attempt to equal that time, contrasting the 2012 Dodge Charger to its

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/br3a8el
You already know that RK Motors Charlotte has a thing for Chargers. You've
already seen some of the world's most mind-blowing, potent, flat-out nasty
pro-touring Chargers come out of our shop. They've been in magazines and
won prizes at all the top shows. And as amazing as they all were, this
show-stopping 1968 Dodge Charger pro-touring custom just upped the ante
significantly! Combining the best of yesterday, with the best of today and
tomorrow, this Charger was built for the muscle car fan that wants the
absolute best and doesn't want to share!
What if you could have the great looks of a Charger in a Challenger-sized
package? We've taken it to the next level not by going wild, but by
imagining how the car would look if the factory had built it. You'll have
to look twice to see the changes (and they are indeed radical), and to find
where the OEM and the modified merge the essence of great customs. Ask any
custom builder and he'll tell you that no car is ever finished, and where
one owner's ideas stop, a new ones begin, letting the car evolve.
Based on the overwhelmingly positive response we got to Maximum Effect, our
all-black '70 Charger pro-touring car, we dipped this one in the same vat
of sinister Midnight Black Metallic to give it a stealthier appearance and
let the radical custom sheet metal do the talking instead of the loud
paint. Where the original design was wild for the sake of being wild, this
one is focused like a laser now the car looks downright brutal, like it'll
bite your hand off if you get too close.
Let's start with the custom design elements present in this stunning
Sleek, free-flowing bodylines.
The front half was shortened 10.5 inches, and the rear 10 inches
Roof was chopped 2 inches, moved ahead 4 inches, and the A-Pillar raked
back, creating a one-of-a-kind look
Each panel on the car has been hand-fabricated
Trunk is 5000 series aluminum, filled with expandable sound deadening foam
to keep things quiet inside
Quarter panels have been shortened and restyled to flow with the doors.
Doors have been restyled with new body lines and a shaved appearance
Fenders have been shortened, restyled and restructured
Hood is custom-made, with a steel frame, wrapped in aluminum and filled
with expanding sound deadening foam
The rear of the car is fitted and shortened
The custom trunk floor and frame rail have been restructured. Torque boxes
have been added for strength and rigidity and the floor and tunnel have
been reconfigured, strengthened and redesigned to fit the new drive-train
Midnight Black Metallic is a custom-mixed paint that was applied by the
experts at our own RK Motors restoration shop (you know, the guys who have
won top honors at virtually every show we've entered)
Custom aluminum CNC-milled gas cap
Custom aluminum fuel cell
Other OEM design elements have been retained, however. From the front
grille to the chrome rear bumper, that's original stuff, again to emphasize
the tremendous amount of metalwork that went into reshaping the body. An
original Charger grille and hidden headlights have been fitted between the
custom-made fenders and hood, exactly the way the factory would have done
it. Out back, the unique 1968 Charger round taillights have been retained
and fit right in, again forcing you to stand back and think hard about
what, exactly, has been modified (look at the car in profile and you'll
definitely see the changes).
