Street Legal TV Editors Blog: Mopars at the Strip, A Dodge Omni to be Feared
Mopars at the Strip isn't about just V8's and massive power... it can be about the power to weight ratios as well. This little Dodge Omni outfitted by Shelby was keeping up with the heavy hitters almost breaking into the low 11's all weekend long.
Street Legal TV Editors Blog: Mopars at the Strip, the Midway of Vendors
Spending the weekend in Las Vegas can end in broken marriages, drained bank
accounts, or even jail time. Thankfully, spending the weekend at the Mopars
at The Strip will render very different results...well, except for the
drained bank account thing if you happen to be an impulse buyer.
Street Legal TV Editors Blog: Mopars at the Strip, the Hotchkis Autocross
Along with tons of drag racing here at the Mopars at the Strip, Hotchkis
Suspension hosted a fantastic autocross track. They took Mopar fans on a
ride of their life in a few Hotchkis company cars, but also allowed fans
with their own cars to run the track. We took the Magnum out for a ride and
had a blast!

1978 Dodge Omni vs VW Rabbit Golf & Toyota & Datsun Chi Chi Rodrigeuz
This Dodge Promo film was made in the Fall of 1977 for the January 1978
Introduction of the Dodge Omni. Chrysler Corporation introduced it's first
world car'. This car was in production from Fall of 77 till Spring of 89.
They were sold as Dodge Omni, Plymouth Horizon, Chrysler Horizon in the UK
and the Simca Talbot Horizon in France. 165,000 cars were sold in the USA
in it's first year of production. The US version used a VW engine block
with Chrysler Parts attached which is kind of ironic considering that they
are comparing the car to the VW Rabbit (Golf) in this film. Chi Chi
Rodriguez does the intro for this film. Wink Martindale does the voice
over for this. These films were produced by the Roy Ross Advertising
agency for Chrysler. They were filmed in Palm Springs. Apologies for the
bad sound quality after about 3 minutes, it's a film that's over 30 years

Mega Mopar - Huge Car Show Drag Racing Burnouts - Supercharged Action at Gateway MSP
This past weekend Jordan and I went to Mega Mopar at Gateway Motorsports
Park and it was awesome! They had a huge car show, a swap meet, nostaglia
drags, funny cars, a wheelstander, and more. We really had a great time! I
tried to pack as much action into the video as I could. There was a sea of
awesome Mopars....Daytonas, Challengers, Chargers, Darts, Super Bees...the
list goes on and on. It was a weekend filled with hemis, wedges, Superchargers, and dual carbs. If you were there,
and your car is not in this video, please don't dispair....I will have much
more coverage coming up in the days ahead. I hope you found it
interesting....thanks for watching!

Drag Racing Muscle Cars ~ Mopars at the Strip
April 12, 2012. Mopar at the Strip 2012 drivers stop in for lunch at
Martin Swanty on Andy Divine Avenue in Kingman Arizona. They're on their
way to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. M.A.T.S (MATS) drag racing muscle
New 2010 GT500 Wheels
Just got my wheel/tire combo in from American Muscle. I went with an 18x9
Front and 18x10 Rear 2010 GT500 Wheel. The wheels are wrapped in Nitto 555
tires. The front is a 255/45-18 and the rear is a 275/40-18.
It's a shame they are destined for the closet for a couple of months before
I can use them, but I'm still real happy.
Only issue I can see is that the 275 has a smaller sidewall height (by .2
in), so it will sit lower than the front 255. American Muscle recommends
that setup, but I'm not so sure a 285 on the rear wouldn't be better. We'll
see how it looks when I mount it, but if it is strange I'll get a 285.
