    2018s have orange calipers as an option. They'd look good on the Destroyer Gray.

    Pagani has always had cool interiors except for poor ergonomics on that passenger side door handle. Who knew it was so firmly attached to ol Bobby's chain?

    I know all this Mopar talk must please Mazderati very much, and I know these beasts have come a long way from the '70s, but can they turn now?

    That should be a VQ-DE, which is the right Nissan v6 to build out with a turbo. Cheap rework if anything goes wrong and it's true that it's conservatively tuned as others run much higher. Buy that shit, it even has legit rubber and rpf1 wheels to put the power down.

    Beats the hell outta my pickup for the summer regarding fun factor that's for sure, and it's gotta do better than 13 mpg right?

    Holler on the Raptor too, homeboy is going to pull the trigger fairly soon.

    Good to know, thanks for the input. I've modified cars for years and know the impacts when increasing the fun Factor. But reasonably what would you expect for mileage out of a built motor like that?

    I'll check and try to get a better response but my take would be to run as low a tune as possible and assume oem reliability on the block (remember it was rebuilt to handle the turbo power). You'll need to learn a bit about the setup and any fine tuning to keep it burning clean, but the VQ-DE turbos and VQ-HR n/a builds are great platforms. And the handling upgrade is key for this build, that one looks like a well balanced car. Most sell for cheap due to joe shmoe buyer not u understanding what separates a good build from bad.

    I bet you could get it for cheap now if this is the same car.

    Right on, thanks. Given the amount of power it appears you can get out of these motors, I don't understand why people do the 350 LS swaps given the weight difference.

    Did your buddy decide on new or old Raptor? Shoot me a txt whenever.

    They built 1100 less Chargers than Challengers in 2017.

    Not only is the Charger a better car dynamically, its also more rare.

    This is going to be the last all gas muscle sedan.
    Wouldn't even exist without the CTS-V...paved the way for brute American modern sedan muscle

    Yo Bobby S., day after thanksgiving I’m driving down the road to pick up a pizza and I pass a black 1979-80 Monte Carlo just like the one in your pictures on the side of the highway with steam billowing out from under the hood and the driver pacing frantically on his phone behind it.

    I tell my wife, hey there’s a guy on the TRG that’s looking for that exact car to which she rolled her eyes and didn’t reply.

    On the return trip 10 minutes later I notice a ton of flashing lights and all southbound lanes shut down as the Monte Carlo was completely engrossed in 25 foot flames. My wife then says “tell your internet ski friends that you know where you can find a good deal on that shitbox if he gets here quick enough”.

    So, if you’re interested in a less than showroom quality example, I can point you to the right mile marker.
    I still call it The Jake.

    Had dealer plates on it, so i assume it's one of Herb Chambers'

    His other daily drivers which he leaves parked on the street around here are a Mercedes SLR and a Veyron

    For a car that wasn’t even good enough to be a Ferrari?

    And as for the SLR, as good as I’m sure that car is, every time I see the one around me in traffic I think, damn that’s one ugly car.
