At the Shell station on Woodward Ave during a Saturday cruise night. I am a sucker for cartoonish Mopars and its bright green allure forced me to stop and take some photos. The owner, Fred, was also very cool and showed me around the whole car. The car is currently making around 600hp all motor, and has a nitrous setup in the trunk if more than that is desired. It is a real badass piece of American Muscle on a nice street-able drag setup. This car is oozing with fun personality, and that night it stole the show; not an easy feat during weekend cruise nights here in Motor City. Enjoy the pics. Read the rest of this entry »
Ever since Pontiac was killed off as a result of the financial crisis, GM has not had a proper American sedan to compete with the successful Dodge Charger.

This past week, Ralph Gilles, the head designer for the Dodge division, announced that the Magnum could be making a comeback. This news makes me very, very happy.
Most people aren’t big fans of the police. In a previous article, I declared that I’m not a member of this group. I respect the police, I leave them alone, and they tend to leave me alone (save for the times I’ve been pulled over). A lot of people are aware that police cars usually have factory modifications to handle the rigors of police work. Some of the mods include more powerful engines, firmer suspension, better brakes, a more durable interior, and disconnected rear switchgear (windows, locks, etc). However, those looking to buy a de-commissioned patrol vehicle should definitely watch out. Read the rest of this entry »
