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.

1968 Charger / 1969 Daytona - /BIG MUSCLE Garage
The 1968 Dodge Charger and the 1969 Dodge Daytona. Two cars based off the
same platform with very different personalities. These two old sleds are
different though, 'cause well, they belong to me (your host) and they're
the reason that BIG MUSCLE exists today. These are not show ponies,
cruisers or weekend projects, but two warhorses that have been run in some
of the toughest long distance and performance events in the United States.
Built for reliability, power and performance, they are not technological
marvels, but old school resto-mods that have been updated for one reason
and one reason only - to put smiles on the faces of all those who see them.
First Drive: 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat 707 hp
The new 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is powered by the new supercharged
6.2-liter HEMI V-8 engine. Its 707 horsepower matches the
highest rating of any V-8 engine in Chrysler Group’s celebrated history.
The all-new supercharged V-8 engine is mated to the beefy new TorqueFlite
8HP90 eight-speed automatic transmission.
This new Hellcat engine is Dodge and SRT’s first application of V-8 Supercharger technology, featuring a
forged-steel crankshaft with induction-hardened bearing surfaces. The
result is a crank so well-engineered it can withstand firing pressures of
110 bar (1,595 psi) – the equivalent of five family sedans standing on
each piston, every two revolutions. And its unique, specially tuned crank
damper has been tested to 13,000 rpm.
High-strength, forged-alloy pistons, developed using advanced telemetry
measurement, are coupled to powder-forged connecting rods with
high-load-capacity bushings and diamond-like-carbon-coated piston pins.
The supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 has premium-grade, heat-treated
aluminum-alloy cylinder heads, which are optimized for superior thermal
conductivity. And its die-cast aluminum rocker covers are HEMI Orange.
Standard on the Charger SRT Hellcat is the largest front-brake package ever
offered in a Chrysler Group vehicle, which were first introduced on the
2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat, featuring all-new 390-mm (15.4-inch) Brembo
two-piece rotors with six-piston calipers for outstanding heat management
and thermal capacity and longevity.
The unrivaled four-door performance numbers tell an impressive story with
the quarter mile in 11.0 seconds, 0-100-0 mph in under 13 seconds, and a
top speed of 204 mile per hour (mph).
The 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat’s restyled driver-focused interior features
premium, soft-touch materials, a new 7-inch thin-film transistor (TFT)
customizable digital instrument gauge cluster and a new instrument panel
center stack with the latest generation 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen media
New for 2015, drivers can select one of the many offered backgrounds to
connect the digital look and feel with their chosen interior package. In
addition, the Charger SRT Hellcat comes standard with a premium 900 watt,
18-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system.
An all-new and class-exclusive electronic shifter with an all-new
driver-oriented T-handle provides the driver with intuitive gear selection
and offers an Auto Stick selector gate for added control.
The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat will be built at the Brampton (Ont.)
Assembly plant. Production is slated to begin in the first quarter of 2015.
