Shelby Dodge Tribute
This is a short video dedicated to the forgotten Shelby cars and their turbocharged Mopar siblings.
The photos were taken by me at the annual SDAC convention, that was held in Chicagoland this year.
For more information on these 80's pocket rockets head over to www.turbo-mopar.com
Note: The beginning dialogue is Shelby talking about a Supercharged Charger; I couldn't seem to find some useable audio that pertained to the use of the turbochargers in the numbered cars that followed... But it still has its merits.
Thanks for watching!

Shelby Lancer Dodge Turbo 2.2
Here is a little something I made because you can't go see this all the time unless you own one. Some shots were inspired by the brochure and I had a LOT of fun doing this. I present an '87 Shelby Lancer, a super rare vehicle and a blast to drive.. Enjoy!!
