Gone in a Flash – Cars & Parts.

Andy Bolig – April 03, 2014 10:43 AM

If you blinked, you missed it. The limited-edition Mopar ’14 Challenger, the latest Chrysler Group LLC vehicle to come straight from the factory already upgraded with Mopar products, has sold out in just the first day after being made available to dealers.

 

New Mopar ?14 Challenger model revealed: only 100 serialized coupes will be built, offering ?Mopar-or-no-car? fans the rarest factory-produced Dodge Challenger model to date with unique ?Moparized? equipment New Mopar ’14 Challenger model revealed: only 100 serialized c

The Mopar ’14 Challenger is the most recent limited-edition vehicle offered by the brand, continuing the success of the Mopar ’10 Challenger, Mopar ’11 Charger, Mopar ’12 300 and Mopar ’13 Dart in demonstrating how owners can personalize their rides with Mopar products — even before driving away from the dealership. With only 100 built, the Mopar ’14 Challenger is the rarest limited-production Dodge Challenger offered to date.

Parkinglot Spotlight – 1963 Dodge 100

You gotta like the trucks.  They worked their tail pipes off for you. This one appears to be nicely restored and serves mainly as a “grocery getter”.

These were manual transmissions and featured either 292 (4.8L) Chrysler B engine, the 309 (5.1L) or the larger 302 (5.2L) B V8.

201

I love these Dodge trucks.

195

Some shadows can’t distract from the this nicely done truck.

 

202

Love the Chrome wheel covers.

204

Massive U.S. steel front end. Just enough chrome for some bling without taking away that “I’m a work truck” look.

 

The D100’s came in several other body styles including several pickups, panel wagons with either 114 or 122 wheel base.

Cost ran from about $1,468 (basically a chassis and cab) to $2,319.

Got one of these beauties laying around?  Post me up a note.

Thanks for reading.

“Christine” 30th anniversary celebration coming to Carlisle | Hemmings Blog

I love book and the movie, and I even started considering collecting one.  When I was a kid (back in the early 70’s) across the road from our house, in a field, sat an old Plymouth Fury – can’t recall cars year but it did have fins.

I remember asking my Dad why we didn’t drive it and he said it needed a carburetor.  It seemed in my young mind’s eye that the carburetor wasn’t much more than a can looking thing with a butterfly looking think in the middle.  So I fashioned one out of a soup can and the metal dividers in an ice cube maker – yes kids it was before ice fell from a frig with a push of a button.

Stephen King said he chose a 1958 Plymouth Fury to play the inhuman title character in his book from the year prior because Furys “were the most mundane Fifties car that I could remember. I didn’t want a car that already had a legend attached to it like the fifties Thunderbird, the Ford Galaxies etc… Nobody ever talked about the Plymouth products.”

Enjoy this article at the link below (and go pick up a Hemmings periodical).  You’ll love them.
