1965 Dodge Power Wagon Fire Truck, 250 gpm pump, equipment for fighting wildfires, or serving beer. Two seperate tanks, combined hold 150 Gallons of water, or two half barrels of beer. Tanks are insulated for ice and beverage storage, water, or both. Truck was refurbished in 2005. Paint is substantially good, but needs touch-up on floor areas. The hood and fenders can be buffed back to full color. All equipment shown stays with the truck and is in great shape. Tires are 80%, standard 9.00-16.00 Good Year Hi-Miler mud and snows with a "D" range. The 16,930 miles are original miles. All major components (engine, trans, tranfer case, etc) are the original components that were on the truck when it was built. I am the second owner of the truck, it came to directly from the fire company that was the original owner. The truck is geared low, (5.83 gears) and does a max speed of 45mph. The engine runs like a top once it warms up. No engine issues at all. The carb may need a rebuild at some point, but works fine otherwise. The clutch and tranmission are excellent, it shifts very smoothly, if you know how to drive a Power Wagon. (standard NP435 with syncros) Brakes are good, but bleed down if the truck is not run after about a month. The brake booster is not original to the truck and was added before I owned it, but is needed to stop it when fully loaded. (the truck is heavy!) Winch and PTO work excellent, it has been used to move things and pull things, but never the truck itself since I have owned it. I did not take this truck off road since I have owned it, and has been cared for in a great way. It has been moved outside and needs to be stored inside somewhere else, and that's why I am selling it. No room anymore. The driver's seat will need to be rebuilt, as will the bottom cushion for that seat. The truck will need a few dabs of paint here and there, but is ready for any parade, picnic, show, or general task requiring a strong truck with a winch. Included in the sale are 2-18 foot chains with hooks,(10k lbs) and 8k lbs snatch block. Winch has 150+ feet of 7/16 wire rope. Siren works good, but has no siren brake. Locking hubs on the front axle make the drive alot better, they are included. The truck has been a big hit at concerts in Philadelphia, Eagles games, fire company wet-downs and musters, benefits of all sorts, the list goes on. I will assist in any way for transportation of the truck, but expences and arrangements are entirely on the buyer. The truck is available for inspection by appointment ONLY. Do NOT show up expecting to see it when I am not here! Read this part again to be sure you understand! Any questions or appointments can be forwarded to me through ebay, or my phone number.....609-859-5433. I hope this truck finds a good home, good luck bidding. Last note....the truck is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the auction early.

In a show of generosity in mid-August, Detroit's business leaders donated $8 million to the Police Department and Fire Department in order to buy 100 new police vehicles and 23 EMS ambulances. But now officers have discovered - and complained - that the police vehicles have glaring safety issues, Deadline Detroit reports. It is not made clear what models of the fleet vehicles - which include police versions of the Ford Taurus, the Chevrolet Caprice and the Dodge Charger - are affected by the safety issues.

Officers reportedly have complained that the Plexiglass partition separating front-seat officers and back-seat prisoners is easily breached, and that the front passenger seat is installed too close to the dashboard. Prisoners who manage to writhe out of their handcuffs can bend the Plexiglass and reach into the cockpit, and sitting too close to the dashboard can render airbags more dangerous and make officers more vulnerable to injury in a crash.
Mark Diaz, president of the Detroit Police Officers Association, received the complaints and reportedly said the vehicles would get safety updates addressing the issues. But Deadline Detroit reports that it checked some of the offending police cars and, as of the last few days, they hadn't been updated.
The reborn Dodge Challenger might be getting a bit long in the tooth, having been on the market in its current form since 2008, but Chrysler isn't going to give up on its brutish, full-size two-door just yet. For this year's SEMA Show, the Challenger will be getting a new Mopar edition, as well as a retro-cool shaker hood on the 5.7-liter, Hemi-equipped R/T models.

As we mentioned last night, the Shaker Package will cost $2,500, but includes the Super Track Pak (new steering rack, brake linings, upgraded shocks and 20-inch Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Car tires), a $595 option on its own. The shaker hood result in a performance bump of any kind, but the blacked-out, pop-up scoop is a nifty feature that hasn't been seen on a production car since the Ford Mustang Mach 1 in the early 2000s.
The Mopar '14 Challenger (pictured right) follows the cues of previous Mopar Editions, which have included the 2010 Challenger, 2011 Charger, 2012 300 and 2013 Dart. Only 100 Mopar '14 Challengers will be produced, and they'll include the new shaker hood, Mopar's distinctive blue graphics and wheels, and whatever is pilfered from the accessory catalog.
It's easy to play the "Would you rather have a New X or an Old Y with a bunch of upgrades?" game more often than we care to admit, but the crew at Car and Driver have taken bench racing to the next level with their latest video. In it, the magazine pits a brand-new 2014 SRT Viper against a highly modified 1997 Dodge Viper GTS. There are 16 years between the time this particular GTS rolled off the production line and when the new car bowed, but that doesn't mean the old snake's owners have been sitting on their hands.
Thanks to a spate of modifications, the GTS offers up a better power to weight ratio than the new machine, but is that enough to overcome the technological leap forward represented by the 2014 Viper? We won't spoil it for you. You'll just have to check out the full clip below for yourself.
