1983 Dodge Shelby Charger / May 2013 update
video 2: Since purchasing this 1983 1/2 Dodge Shelby Charger in August 2012, a number of engine updates by turboMopar's 'R/T' and 'BIGBRUDDA" have resulted in a nicely running Shelby Dodge machine. Here is a short video with a few throttle blips to show off the new Exhaust and smooth-running carbed 2.2 liter 4-banger.





SDAC-22 - Recap
Re-cap of the annual Shelby Dodge Auto Club (SDAC)'s event that was held in June. This was the 22nd year, and also the 25th anniversary of the '87 CSX, Lancer, and GLHS. The event was a blast! If anyone out there is a fan of the little turbocharged four-cylinders, please feel free to stop in on the next one! These cars were pionneers on the world of FWD turbocharged performance back in the 80's and paved the way for the powerhouses we see today! Tech stuff: Shot with a Nikon D7000 and a Go Pro Hero 2. Edited in Adobe Priemere, with some After Effects animated titles. Video and Edit: Marybeth Kiczenski (aka.. dodgeshadowchik) Music track(s): 1. "Shine a Light" 2. Klaypex - "Rain" Thank you for watching and see you at SDAC-23!!





Dodge Omni GLH Shift Linkage Installation
I installed the Great Lakes Hot Rods L body Shift Linkage kit in my Omni GLH recently. There are some differences between the NA GLH and turbo model shift linkages which gave me a really rough time. Notice where my NA ball socket is on the long piece which goes to the shifter vs. stock. See also how my piece is angled so much more than the turbo piece is. If you barely install the spherical bearing into the rod that will be a great starting place to allow for proper movement and placement of the shifter for the NA models. Installing the ball on the opposite side like stock may help, but I was following the directions, and the height wouldn't have been all that different anyway. At 2:31 you can see the arm which goes to the shifter and compare it to a turbo one in the instructions you're provided.





Shelby CSX-T First Pass 3/23/2011
1988 Shelby CSX-T's maiden autocross. Kettering Firebirds event at Dixie Motor Speedway. Pass was made on old all seasons and worn out shocks. The tires were so bad i nearly drove home to get the old Neon autocross tires. I was plowing more than MDOT in January.

1987 Shelby Charger GLHS #477 - FOR SALE BY OWNER - Interior driver-side - October, 2012
IF INTERESTED, PLEASE EMAIL ME AT 1987chargerglhs477@gmail.com SEE PICTURES AT http://1987chargerglhs477.wordpress.com/ I pointed out a scuff line on the driver's window tint that was caused by the inside felt window guide. It didn't scratch the glass. The aftermarket tint is applied on the driver-side windows, the passenger-side windows and the rear hatch. It is not too dark, has good visibility at night, and no wrinkle spots or sun fading. This is a good quality tint and appears to be professionally installed. No rust under the doors, and the door hinge pins are very secure. The door weatherstrip has come loose for about 2 feet on the bottom of the driver's door. It is intact, not damaged and can possibly be glued back on or completely replaced if desired. Carpets are 95% clean, no missing patches or ripped piles. Just one small stain that appear to be from boots, and can probably be cleaned using a good carpet cleaner. I always used the original Mopar floor mats, which are in real good condition and are included. Clean non-smoking interior. Seats are 95% and work as they should, just like everything else. I had seat covers on them since Day 2. Momo leather shift knob is 98% and the leather wrapped steering wheel is 95%. Only 3 small surface scuffs on the wheel, but both the steering wheel and the shift knob are nice and black with no dry rot whatsoever. I replaced the original radio for a Chrysler Infinity from a 1989 Lebaron turbo 2.5, and it was a simple swap. Same connectors I believe. It sounds so much better than stock, but I will also include the stock radio with the sale. Previous owner had an expensive stereo in it which he removed before selling it to me. You will see Dynamat on the trunk floor and spare wheel compartment because he had a speaker back there. Even the glovebox door strap is intact! The AutoMeter Boost gauge will stay with the car and works excellent. The needle does not flutter since I think it is a liquid-filled gauge. It should light up with the instrument panel but I think the bulb is burned out. All other interior lights work as they should. I removed the Boost gauge that the previous owner installed because it was on the A-pillar and forced you to take your eyes off the road. Also, I installed this so that it could be easily unplugged and stowed in the glovebox to avoid theft. I didn't cut or drill any holes during installation and it can be easily removed. The sun visors stay put. There are a few areas of the headliner that are beginning to settle. Nothing major, can possibly be fixed with a spray adhesive.

1987 Shelby Charger GLHS #477 - Exterior (part 2) - FOR SALE BY OWNER - October, 2012
IF INTERESTED, PLEASE EMAIL ME AT 1987chargerglhs477@gmail.com SEE PICTURES AT http://1987chargerglhs477.wordpress.com/ As far as I'm aware and what I've been told by the previous owner, this is the original paint. In my opinion, the quality of the paint job was poor to begin with - topcoat black under the door beneath the interior panels were sprayed very thin from Shelby and you can see the primer through it. The prior owner had touched up the passenger door and you can see a paint line if you look for it. Here we can see the paint peeling away on the hood (and this is the only place this is occurring) showing the base primer underneath. This is a common problem for not only for Dodge, but several other auto makers of this era. It started to peel in 1999 and since then, I've been extra cautious about protecting the rest of the paint. I suppose a paint job just on the hood would suffice. There are a few door dings from careless and inconsiderate idiots. Aside from the hood, I would say the paint is about 80%. The decals are about 85%, showing a custom "shadow paint" in purple that was done by the previous owner. It really looks great. The SHELBY decal on the front window has some cracks - I would rate it at 85%. Many genuine Mopar new old stock decals will be included with the sale. All of the marker lights and reflectors have been "blacked out" using a transparent black paint that still allows light to penetrate. Similarly, the aftermarket Philips headlights have a black honeycomb insert. During the day, the headlights look black. At night, the lights shine bright. I bought a spare rear center brake light lens and installed the Blue Dots (the original brake lens is blacked out as well and is also included). At night, the blue prism lenses blend with the red light surrounding the Blue Dots to yield a purple color. Very fitting considering the purple theme from the decals. I also installed a locking gas cap but have the original which is included. The rims are 90%. All of the original machining looks very crisp, and there are no dings or curb damage. The finish is better than good, only a few areas showing the original clear coat beginning to spider crack. All wheel weights are on the inside of the rim. McGard wheel lock nuts and key are included. There are lots of life left on these Firestone tires - I would guess at least 3 to 5 years left easily. No dry rot or cracks. Size is P205-50R15. Side mirrors and back bumper cover are originally finished in a flat matte black. They are beginning to show a very slight amount of sun fade, but a little bit of waxing definitely hides this.
