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!

В 1971 году кузов стал иметь более
округлые "флюзеляжи". Дизайн
соответствовал действующими традициями
Кабриолет больше не выпускается. Общая
длина кузова была сокращена, а колесная
была даже увеличена для лучшей
управляемости и устойчивости в
поворотах. Аэродинамика, за счет более
плавных линий улучшилась, как и ее
производная - скорость, но разгон
пострадал, частично из-за меньшей

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.
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.
17 Year Old Girl Rides A Lamborghini from School - Reaction video
Former neighbor's daughter gets a surprise Lamborghini Aventador ride from
her high school followed by a visit to Times Square. The reactions were
Video where I film the reactions of strangers riding my car at high speeds:
I've had this neighbor for many years when I was poor and living in a
poorer neighborhood. I became successful and moved to Florida a few years
ago. I then came back to my hometown for a visit, and I brought my
Lamborghini with me. I saw an opportunity to make the kid's day much
brighter, and I took it.
All profits made from the ads in this video will be donated to her college
fund. In fact, I will match the amount and double it. This video has
already generated hundreds of dollars in the past 48 hours. Thanks for
sharing this video. She's going to be amazed at how much money we raised
There's a Portugese saying: "Não importa o quanto sobes na vida, nunca te
esqueças de onde vieste."
Translation: "No matter how much you climb in life, never forget where you
You can also directly donate to her college fund here:

Video where I let more people sit in my car and filmed their smiles:
Reading the comments, I want to clear some things up: The girl was estatic
when she got the ride. You can hear her giggling in the background during
the Times Square footage. I cannot show her face, because 1) I didn't film
it and 2) I respect her privacy. The GoPro cameras point outwards on my
car, because they're there as security cameras in case something happens to
my car. The video was made almost half a year after these shots were made,
and it was only uploaded because some of my YouTube subscribers requested
that I put up the full video of what they captured. The background story in
the beginning is true, and she approved of it before I put it into the
video. In fact, she approved the entire video before I posted it. To those
making negative comments (especially the ones that are sexual in nature), I
think those are more of a reflection of your own personality than of mine
if that's the first thing you think of when you watch this video. I've
picked up guys and girls in the Lamborghini before at school. And they were
all by request. My car club also hosts charity events where we let sick
children from hospitals sit in our cars (with parental consent of course).
As for the former neighbor's daughter, I did help her out financially as
well. I even offered to help pay her college tuition and buy her a car, but
she didn't feel comfortable accepting it (understandable). However, when I
told her that I'd use the profits from this video, she was okay with it,
because she was the reason this video existed in the first place. You guys
are free to make negative comments about me all you want; it doesn't matter
to me (I'm a short Asian computer geek, so I'm used to being bullied). At
the end of the day, this girl was happy and the people who saw the car were
happy, and that's all that matters to me.
More info on the daughter's situation: She is now living in her friend's
house and doesn't live with her mother anymore. Her mother still keeps
stealing money from her Social Security, and the daughter will enter
college without any savings in her name because of that. I will stay true
to my word and donate every penny made from this YouTube video to help pay
for her college books/tuition. So sharing this video will help her. She
reads some of these YouTube comments, so please leave her some words of
encouragement as well.
