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.

800 HP Dodge Charger 605 cid / 9.9 L - The most bad-ass American muscle car ever?!
Jamboolio records one of the most bad-ass Pro Touring cars out there, a
fully customized 1973 Dodge Charger SE with a custom built 605 cubic inch /
9.9 Liter Big Block V8 engine packing 805 horsepower and about 740
lb-ft (1000 Nm) of torque!
The interior is also all new with gauges and sport seats and the wheels are
20" ZE Forged Friction rims.
The owner has thought about supercharging this beast when it would make
about 1000 HP even though the wheels spin in the third gear already! Enjoy

2008 SEMA: Dodge Challenger Convertible
MORE SEMA INFO:
HIGH SPRINGS, Florida — Dodge has no plans to offer a Challenger
convertible, which provides Coach Builders Ltd. an open shot at muscle car
enthusiasts looking for an alternative to the popular Ford Mustang drop top. Now in final
preparations for its official debut at the upcoming 2008 SEMA Show, the
Coach Builders Dodge Challenger convertible will be shown alongside the
company's Chrysler 300C and Cadillac CTS convertible conversions.
Coach Builders' Larry Moran told Inside Line that production of the
Challenger convertible will begin on November 15, and that the company is
"already taking deposits for getting a place in line." The Challenger
convertible conversion is priced at $16,000, Moran said. A 2009 Dodge
Challenger SRT8 currently costs $41,695 including shipping charges and
gas-guzzler tax, so expect to pay nearly $58,000 for open-air Challenger
Moran also says that "custom interiors, performance options and wheels and
tires" will be offered, but the details "are not firmed up yet." The car
that will debut at SEMA was fortified with a Vortech Supercharger that bumps the 6.1-liter Hemi V8 to
560 horsepower and
510 pound-feet of torque. It rides slightly lower on a KW coil-over
suspension kit and 22-inch Foose Challenger wheels wrapped in Nitto tires.
The convertible conversion reinforces the Challenger with strut bars hidden
inside the trunk instead of a visible roll bar, and the acrylic polyester
cloth hydraulic top is padded between the structure and the exterior fabric
for sound and temperature insulation. A heated glass rear window and
matching fabric headliner are also included.
New Ford Mustang Concept
I made this redesign on the base of the new GT500 KR. Inspiration was also
my 69er Mach 1 and the 67er Model. The Goal was to make the Mustang meaner, stronger and sharper
looking. Ready to compete with the upcomming Camaro :-)
