1978 Dodge W200 Custom 4x4. Automatic with the 400 engine. Dana spicer 44 & Dana spicer 60. This truck belonged to an eccentric WWll vet, (who has since passed), who had this vehicle prepared as his "the end is here, lets get out of Dodge" vehicle. He had the back of this truck packed full with the things he would need when he saw the mushroom cloud over Boise. The truck just sat in covered storage most of the time, ready to go. There are thousands of dollars in receipts for things he had done to this truck, for whatever reason. He had a heavy duty radiator put in, overload leaf springs added to the rear, a two stage shift kit put in the transmission, new exhaust system, trailer brakes, heavy duty rear tow bumper and more. The truck is sitting on new Michelin 10 ply tires mounted on beautiful chromed steel rims and has 2 fairly new (95%+tread) mounted 8 ply Uniroyal tires in the back for spares along with two extra Dodge rims. The body is really straight with the exception of two small dings just behind the passenger door, kind of visable in the pictures. There are minor gravel chips and scratches you would expect to see on a truck that has been driven this many miles. (I am presently driving this truck occasionally and expect the mileage to be around 32,000 by the end of September). He installed a heavy duty rear tow bumper (the original chrome bumper comes with the truck). The canopy was built and purchased in Boise; it is in exceptional condition for its age, is wired, has working lights inside and comes with two locks on the canopy door. The whole back door wall of the canopy unhinges and is removable if you have a need to carry something large. With the condition of the bed I have to assume this canopy has been on the truck pretty much since new. The interior of the truck is hard to believe. Its got a working real classy :) push button am radio. The glass is perfect. There is no a/c. There are a few very small places on the truck that look like touch up paint but I don't know. The following description and pictures are some of what was left in the vehicle when I bought it. I'm not listing everything, but most of what comes with it is listed.
In no particular order: spare water hoses, 2 thermostats, 3 distributer caps, rotors, condensers, points, heavy duty equalizer hitch, 3 carburetor rebuild kits, 2 five gallon gas cans (full), 2 hydraulic jacks, 2 lug wrenches, 1 case of quarts of 30 wt Pennzoil, 1 large box containing brake fluid, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, 2 gallons of anti freeze and more, 3 control modules, jumper cables, 1 dip stick, 2 sets of spark plug wires, lots of spare belts, upper and lower radiator hoses, 3 radiator caps, Dodge service manual, carburetor service manual, 3 oil filters, 1 air filter, 3 alternators, 1 starter, 1 fuel pump, 3 fan clutches, spare fuses, various packs of bulbs, rolls of wire and I'm sure there is more.If you would like to see more pictures or come see the truck, let me know...Rick...208-866-1121...NO texting please. The successful high bidder must submit a $1000.00 non-refundable payment deposit with PAYPAL within 24 hours of the close of the auction to secure the vehicle.

When Dodge announced that the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat would produce 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque from its supercharged 6.2-liter V8, automotive enthusiasts were shocked. The company had promised us that it would be powerful, but no one expected for the muscle car to post even larger numbers than the range-topping Viper.

Car and Driver recently got ahold of two new SRTs and decided that the only proper way to show them off was by lighting up the rears in stereo. With a combined 1,414 horsepower, the pair of them make burnouts from the Hellcat V8 look as easy as breathing. The tires start spinning at the slightest provocation and just don't stop. If you buy one of these, it looks like you and the employees at the local tire store are going to be on a first name basis.
Scroll down to watch these two Hellcats to lay down enough smoke to alert the local hook and ladder trucks.
As if driving the old Dodge Viper (not the fancy new SRT model) isn't intimidating enough, imagine trying to wrangle that V10 beast and then suddenly having the airbags deploy. Yikes. That's apparently what could happen to some 3,660 Viper models from the 2003 and 2004 model years, and as such, Chrysler has issued a recall.
Tue, 07 Jan 2014 09:00:00 EST
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, part of the car's airbag control module may fail, causing the bags or seatbelt pre-tensioners to deploy without warning while the vehicle is in operation. That's a dangerous scenario in any car, let alone one offering insane horsepower a near-total paucity of safety nannies should things get squirrely.
Owners will be notified this month about the recall, though a remedy is not expected to be available until later this year. Scroll down for the full NHTSA statement.
Dodge is getting ready to spread the Blacktop-themed love to the smallest member of its lineup. Last year, the automaker offered up Blacktop versions of the Avenger, Challenger, Charger, Durango, Grand Caravan and Journey. And now the Dart, too, gets its dark on for 2014, with the $295 package offered on Dart SXT models equipped with the Rallye Appearance Group. The Dart Blacktop will make its debut at the Detroit Auto Show next week.
As with the other Blacktop special-edition models, the Dart Blacktop gets glossy black accents for a "sporty, sinister look." The blacked-out treatment spreads across the 18-inch wheels to the crosshair grille, grille surround and headlamp bezels. The interior sees a similar treatment, with black and light tungsten or black and ruby red cloth to go with red accent stitching on the instrument panel, center console and seat bolsters.
For the 2014 model year, all Dart SXT and Limited models receive the 2.4-liter MultiAir2 Tigershark engine with 184 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque, and since the Blacktop is based on the SXT, that's the powerplant buyers of this special-edition will get, too. Expect the 2014 Dart Blacktop to hit dealers in the first quarter, and while you're waiting, feel free to read more in the official press release below.
