  1. This Beautiful Freak Hellcat Is a Dodge Charger with a Magnum Hatch and a Jeep Trackhawk Drivetrain By Peter Holderith, The Drive 17 hrs ago Contact tracing for COVID-19 maxed out in Colorado Trump digs deeper into debunked conspiracy theories instead of… This Beautiful Freak Hellcat Is a Dodge Charger with a Magnum Hatch and a Jeep Trackhawk Drivetrain Wagons aren't as popular today as they once were, but that doesn't mean everyone has forgotten about them. Many enjoy the smooth wagon lines, and the practicality the body style offers. As my dad once put it, "Wagons are cool, son. They're just a sedan with a fanny pack." And just a few years ago, Dodge was making an angry wagon called the Magnum, sharing a platform with the Charger and Chrysler 300. © Provided by The Drive Many were sad to see it go, including--I'm assuming--YouTuber Junkyard Dave, aka David Nenno. A self-described laid off mechanical and electrical engineer, Nenno has embarked on a fantastic project: to create the Charger wagon Dodge doesn't build today. This isn't just a project to test Nenno's Bondo skills, however. The car is receiving widebody panels from Dodge, and the engine and drivetrain from a Jeep Cherokee Trackhawk. That means an AWD, supercharged Charger wagon making 707 horsepower on the worst day of its life. Nenno, of course, plans to get that horsepower figure closer to 1,000, though. Video player from: YouTube (Privacy Policy, Terms) The project started seven months ago with the ritual disassembly of a 2015 Dodge Charger, which was a previously stolen car bought at an auction for cheap. After most of the four-door was stripped out, the process of grafting the rear hatch from a junkyard Dodge Magnum onto the back of the new Charger began. As of today, most of the body panels have all been welded on, filled smooth, and primed for paint. The widebody bumpers, side skirts, and fenders just arrived recently, so they're next in line. That being said, even with the stock Charger's wheels hiding inside the fenders and the car riding high due to the lack of a drivetrain, it just looks right. Nenno says he plans to install not only the Trackhawk drivetrain, but the wheels as well, so those arches will be filled with 325-millimeter-wide tires to boot. Video player from: YouTube (Privacy Policy, Terms) As far as actually making it run and drive, the car's floor will need to be cut up to accommodate the Trackhawk's transfer case. The front differential/axle situation will need to get sorted out as well, which likely involves modifying the front subframe. A custom driveshaft will then have to be made to get power to the rear end, which will be sourced from the same junkyard Trackhawk that the rest of the drivetrain is coming from. Learn More And despite the massive amount of work it will take to get all of this working right, it's definitely worth it. With how good even a tall-riding, dinky-wheeled iteration of this car looks, it's surprising Dodge doesn't make a lifted wagon based on the Charger labeled as a crossover--like the AMC Eagle Wagon--and throw a Hellcat motor in it. They would sell at least three, I'm sure of it. It's also an easy excuse to rehash an existing platform it has to make a "brand new vehicle." Think about it: there are more trims of Charger and Challenger than there are atoms in the universe, and making this car--which is really just another trim in itself--would allow for the brand to apply all of those trims (and more) to a "brand new vehicle." If Nenno can make a prototype for this sort of thing over seven months using only existing Mopar goodies, I don't see why Dodge can't at least tease us with something similar at SEMA.
  2. This looks fun. https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/enthusiasts/this-beautiful-freak-hellcat-is-a-dodge-charger-with-a-magnum-hatch-and-a-jeep-trackhawk-drivetrain/ar-BB1bbc6D
  3. Call the dealer and have them come get it. Sounds like a lifter, but I don't know shit.

  5. Nice.
  6. I could tell you, but I am pretty sure I skew the numbers to the bad side.
  7. Wish i could help, I don't pay attention to these things any longer, good luck.
  8. How do you know that?
  9. That looks good. I just always have used the rear pad to lift the entire side of the car.
  10. What the heck are you ordering from them?

  12. Good luck, I will keep my eye out for you.

The auto-pedestrian incident occurred about two miles south of Kilgore, according to a press release, and Texas Department of Public Safety troopers responded to and investigated the fatal collision. The investigator’s preliminary report shows that Kelton Jayce Meshell. 21, of Flint, was driving a 2014 Dodge Challenger east in the outside lane of SH 31, when the car struck a pedestrian that had been walking in the road for an unknown reason. The pedestrian was identified as Aundrea Sharell Powe, of Kilgore. Pct. 1 Justice of the Peace B.H. Jameson pronounced Powe dead at the scene. “The crash remains under investigation,” the press release stated.
  14. I need this in my life. https://www.autoevolution.com/news/somebody-slapped-offroad-tires-on-a-dodge-challenger-hellcat-and-it-looks-sick-147989.html Somebody Slapped Offroad Tires on a Dodge Challenger Hellcat and It Looks Sick 28 Aug 2020, 15:21 UTC · by Andrei Tutu Home > News > Custom Cars If you can hear the supecharger whine just by looking at this image, it means you're a Mopar fan. However, this is not your average Hellcat, if that adjective is ever fit for a 700-plus horsepower machine. And that's because this Challenger seems to want to take its driver anywhere. 35 photos Could the big coupe achieve the goal mentioned above? Well, thanks to its newfound offroad tires, it can certainly go further down the beaten path than the standard car. Nevertheless, the rest of the vehicle seems to have remained unchanged, from the stock wheels to the suspension - there's no info accompanying the image, but, judging by the ground clearance, the small lift visible here seems to simply be the result of the massive rubber. Speaking of details surrounding the photo, this came to our attention via the Americanmusclehd Instagram page, which doesn't mention a source. Even so, the vehicle seems to sport auction tags. In fact, one Instagram user turning to the comments section of the post showcasing the car, which awaits you below, has suggested this is a Manheim auction. For the record, while some of the events held by the specialist are open to the public, most of them are aimed solely at dealers, featuring wholesale prices. And while we searched the public auction inventory available online at the time when this article was published, no contraption of the sort showed up. Much to nobody's surprise, the offroad tires wouldn't have fit the vehicle in factory trim, so, as you can easily notice, the job required quite a bit of fender cutting. So, anybody who buys this Plum Crazy-finished Hellcat and decides to keep the tires might want to throw some overfenders in there to keep the mud below the windows. Of course, there are plenty of questions that remained unanswered: Was this a smuggler's car? Why have the splitter guards been left on? Could you use this in the image battle against your neighbor, who plans on getting that Hellcat-animated 2021 Ram 1500 TRX?
  15. Sorry, technical difficulty with a forum software update turned into a server problem. We are going to look for some long term solutions so this does not happen again.
