Ah yes, the Famous Sublime green Challenger T/A... which originally was all green (aside from number?) but Sam Posey, one of the drivers (other was Swede Savage I believe), thought it looked too wild/hurt his eyes, so had Dodge paint the roof black and put the RT stripe on the side...

1970 Dodge Challenger for sale at Gateway Classic Cars in St. Louis, MO
Stock #5545. For you Mopar fans out there we've got the car for you. For
sale is a 1970 Dodge Challenger. Named to "challenge" anyone on the street,
this Dodge debuted in 1970 and became an instant classic. Under the hood,
you will find a powerhouse of nostalgic engineering, a 440 CID V8 wedge
engine. These engines are known for their power but are not as hyped as the
popular Hemi. The transmission is a stout 727 TorqueFlite automatic which
has been known to handle up to 550 horsepower. The exterior of
the car is the factory Sublime Green color that it had in 1970. The
interior is comprised of new black vinyl and looks very clean. The interior
matches the vinyl top on the exterior of the car. The car was completely
restored in 2007 and looks amazing. Before the epoxy paint the car was
taken all the way down to bare metal. We even place mirrors along the
underside of the car in our showroom to highlight the craftsmanship. The
440 engine has been bored .030 over and offers a mild camshaft and 2 1/2
inch stainless steel Exhaust. With
these options you know it sounds great! To view this classic American
muscle car please visit www.gatewayclassiccars.com or our St. Louis
showroom. For more information please call 618-271-3000.

Trans Am Paddock '66-'72 Sights & Sounds
Happy July 4th! If you have speakers plugged into your computer, turn it
up. Hopefully you have a subwoofer, too! This footage is me walking
through Vic Edelbrock's collection of vintage Trans-Am racecars as they're
being prepared for the Group 7A races and enjoying the sights and sounds...
The Trans-Am Series is an automobile racing series which was created in
1966 by Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). This was the proving ground for
all American manufacturers to compete with race-modified production cars.
It ran until 1972 when at the height of Richard Nixon's incompetence
dealing with OPEC, we had a gas shortage which was compounded by an embargo
levied against us. Syria, Egypt and Tunisia didn't really like Nixon
re-feuling their arch-enemy, Israel. Rather than address the shortage,
the auto industry was heavily regulated to curb consumption. Further
restrictions placed on the oil industry by an other rocket surgeon, Jimmy
Carter, left us unable to further develop our own oil supplies which
cemented these changes to the auto industry. These events changed muscle
cars as we knew them into complete turds for over a decade while US auto
makers struggled with the regulations and re-learned how to produce decent
cars again... but for the "pony cars", it was the beginning of the end.
The oil embargo of 1973 changed the shape of not only the auto industry,
but all forms of auto racing to follow.
You used to be able to afford these cars. I remember when... back when I
was in high school...
But it's 2010 now. This race celebrates all the classic cars you've
dreamed of owning or being seen in. These things auction in the 6+ figures
now (because of their race history). Enjoy this parade of '60's and early
'70's model Ford Mustangs,
Plymouth Barracudas, Mercury Cougars, AMC Javelins, Pontiac Firebirds, and
Dodge Challengers. This event required that they be in their original race
condition in order to run with the Group 7A cars, so the contest to follow
is all about how much compression these 40+ year old cars have left, and
who's driving it. These beauties have been meticulously preserved by the
best collectors, engineers and mechanics in the industry. I hope you guys
can appreciate it because this is off my normal subject material.
I just wanted to change things up and post something American on
Independence day. This one's for the Veterans.
