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.

WHAT A BRAND NEW 1969 PONTIAC GTO (ALMOST) LOOKS LIKE
THIS IS A SPECTACULAR RESTORATION OF A '69 GTO. IF YOU WENT TO A PONTIAC
DEALER BACK IN '69 TO BUY A GTO THIS IS WHAT IT MOSTLY WOULD LOOK LIKE.
THERE ARE SOME MODIFICATIONS LIKE THE CHROME RADIATOR SHROUD, ENGINE, AND
OTHER FEATURES BUT MOST EVERY DETAIL IS LIKE NEW, FROM THE ENGINE
COMPARTMENT, UNDERNEATH AS SEEN REFLECTED IN MIRRORS, THE INTERIOR IS
PERFECT, AND ALSO THE TRUNK COMPARTMENT. IN 1969 MODEL 242, TEMPEST GTO'S
CAME IN TWO MODELS: HARDTOP COUPE AND CONVERTIBLE COUPE. BOTH MODELS HAD
A 112 INCH WHEELBASE WITH 64,851 COUPES MADE, AND 7,436 CONVERTIBLES
PRODUCED. COUPES WERE PRICED AT $3,156 AND RAGTOPS PRICED AT $3,382.
ENGINES WERE V8 400 CID, 4.12 X 3.75 BORE AND STROKE WITH 2 VERSIONS: 366
BHP AND 370 BHP. FOR ALL PONTIAC MODELS THERE WERE 13 ENGINE VARIANTS
AVAILABLE. THIS IS PART OF PONTIAC'S HERITAGE THEN, DIFFERENT SIZE MUSCLE
FOR DIFFERENT SIZE PONTIACS. BUT CHECK THIS JEWEL OUT. THIS IS A ONE OF A
KIND RESTORATION OF A SELDOM SEEN GTO. SO BACK IN '69 WHEN YOU WENT TO THE
PONTIAC DEALER TO BUY A GTO, THIS IS MOSTLY WHAT THE SALESMAN WOULD HAVE
SHOWN YOU. A BRAND NEW OPTIC ORANGE DREAM CAR WITH THE BLACK VINYL
INTERIOR. Another restored car brought to you by 55lincoln.
1968 Pontiac GTO Engine Idle Car Craft Magazine
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1968-pontiac-gto/ to see this amazing
1968 Pontiac GTO from Sunset Classics. This fabulous Vedora Green machine
wowed 'em at the Muscle Car Classic with an impressive first place win. She
sports a wicked Pontiac 406ci V-8 Engine that kicks out an impressive
330HP. A Numbers matching very very rare 3:55 gear "N"case 4 pinion posi
rear end. And so much more fun stuff I get the chills just thinking about
all that high performance fun.
This great GTO was featured in Car Craft magazine in 2003 (Dyno Proven engine combos). At
that time it was Dyno'd at 313HP with 362lb-ft.
Since then it has been fine tuned to even better performance.
Check out the configuration and two photo galleries of this fine GTO here:
