Idiots + Burnouts = COPS!
Long story short, smack talking turned to burnouts which turned into a
confrontation by the local authorities.

Modified Dodge Charger 71 Burnout
In 1971, the all-new third generation Charger debuted. It was completely
restyled with a new split grille and more rounded "fuselage" bodystyle. The
interiors now looked more like those of the E-body and were now shared by
the Plymouth B-body, the Plymouth Satellite Sebring and Road Runner. No
longer standard, the hidden headlights were now optional. A rear spoiler
and a "Ramcharger" hood made the option lists for the first time. A special
scoop was mounted in the hood, directly above the air cleaner. If the
driver wanted to draw clean air directly into the carburetor, he flipped
the vacuum switch under the dash and the scoop popped up. The Plymouth Road
Runner used this device and called it the "Air Grabber" hood. While this
device had been used on the Coronet R/T and Super Bees, it had never
appeared on the Charger.
Dodge also merged its Coronet and Charger lines. From 1971, all four-door
B-bodies were badged as Coronets and all two-door B-bodies as Chargers.
Thus for one year only, the Charger Super Bee became part of the Charger
stable. From 1971 to 1974, Charger models used the Coronet's VIN prefix of
The Dodge Super Bee made the move from the Coronet line to the Charger line
for 1971 only, then the model was discontinued. Several other models were
carried over from 1970, including the 500. The R/T and SE versions carried
over as well, but the R/T's popularity was on the downslide thanks to
higher insurance costs. Only 63 Hemi versions were built, and 2,659 were
built with other engines that year. Rapidly rising insurance rates,
combined with higher gasoline prices, reduced sales of muscle cars and 1971
was the last year of availability for the 426 Hemi "Elephant engine" in any
car. 1971 also saw the end of the high-performance 440 Six-Pack engine
(although some early Dodge literature (August 1971 press) stated that this
engine was available for 1972, it was pulled at the last minute. However, a
few factory installed six-pack Chargers and Road Runners were built early
in the production run). In the Super Bee's final year, the 340 became a $44
option over the standard, low-compression 383 .
Many of the "Hi-Impact" colors would disappear after the 1971 model year;
this also created the 1971-only "Citron Yella".
1972 Dodge Charger
The 1972 Charger bowed with a new "Rallye" option to replace the former R/T
version. The SE was differentiated from other 1972 Chargers by a unique
formal roof treatment and hidden headlights. The 440 engines were still
available, and were rated at net (280 bhp) horsepower rating instead of
the previous (350 bhp) gross values. The ratings went down as the net horsepower measure
was more realistic. Also beginning in 1972, all engines featured lowered
compression ratios to permit the use of regular leaded or unleaded gasoline
rather than leaded premium fuel as in past years due to increasing tighter
emissions regulations. Though the 440+6 (designating a 3 2-barrel carb
setup and 310 bhp) was listed in the early 1972 sales literature, it was
found in the August 1971 testing that this engine would not meet the new
and more stringent 1972 emissions laws. Rumuors persist over the years that
a few cars were built and sold with this engine, before it was taken off
the option list. The low-compression 440 Magnum (280-hp) with a 4-barrel
carburetor became the top engine, and the optional Pistol-Grip 4-speed
Hurst manual shifter could be coupled to the 340, 400, and 440 Magnum
engines. Several other option cutbacks occurred in 1972, with the taller
performance rear gear ratio's, the large 15x7" performance rims and tires,
and extra heavy duty suspensions were dropped, and it was the final year
for the Dana 60 differential, available only behind a 440/4 speed, and only
with the 3.54 rear end ratio.
The only remaining "Hi-Impact" color choices were "Hemi Orange" (EV2) and
"Top Banana" (FY1), the latter of which hung around under different names
through 1974 .
1973 Dodge Charger
Unusual triple opera window on 1973 Dodge Charger SE
For 1973 the Chargers were mildly restyled and sported all new sheet metal,
and while the rear roof C-pillars looked like the only difference from the
1972s, the 1973 cars were actually longer, wider, and slightly taller. Also
new were vertically slatted taillights and new grills. Hidden headlights
were dropped, even as an option. The 318 was still standard, with the 340
(available only on the Rallye), 400 (2- and 4-barrel) and 440 remaining as
options. The SE models had a new roof treatment that had a "triple opera
window" surrounded by a canopy-style vinyl roof. All other models had a new
quarter window treatment, ditching its AMC Gremlin-style window in favor of
a more conventional design. Sales this year were around 108,000 units, the
highest ever for the 1971-74 Charger generation. The 1973 Chargers, and all
Chrysler products, were equipped with 5 mph bumpers, front and rear.
Dodge Charger Back to Life (Burnout)
Heres a video i made of the restoration and modification of a 1972 Dodge
1: "That burnout sucked, why did you use oil?"
1: I apologize i know its kind of lame LOL but i had just bought the tires
when i made the video and i need them to last as long as possible cuz they
are not cheap. This car can burn in dry and stay there. I decided to use
oil to make smoke out of the oil instead of the tires.
2: "Why Automatic Transmission?"
2: Because this is my everyday car and manual transmissions in classic cars
are very unpractical in traffic, when i can have this car as my weekend car
i will make it a manual.
3: "You Must Be a Rich Kid, This was made with your fathers money"
3: No, Hell No. I bought this car for 3000 bucks in very bad condition and
worked very hard everyday after school with my own hands in it for about 2
years and put all my life savings into it.
4: "What Engine does it have?"
4: It has a slightly modified 360 engine with long headers, manifold,
crankshaft, piston heads, an Edelbrock 4 throat carb, sparkplugs and
