Chasing down an incidental Craigslist lead, I drove northbound on the highway for 2.5 hours in hopes of rescuing a pair of Plymouth ‘Cudas. Upon discovering the eroded E-bodies were beyond my means, I wasted no time asking the owner if he knew of any other old Mopars in the area. Coincidentally, he informed us we were just a few miles away from a nearby junkyard known as Mostly MoPower. Now that sounded like our speed.Continue reading

I’m always on the hunt for old iron, whether it’s tucked away in the corner of a barn gathering boxes and dust, or has been shoved outside and left-for-dead. Pursuing every lead that falls into my path, my quest for Chryslers always seem to elicit long-winded adventures. A few weeks back, a simple Craigslist search spiraled into a 300 mile long escapade that lead me to dozens of abandoned MoparsContinue reading
The year is 1970; your hair is long and your pant legs wide. Gas is cheap and grass is cheaper, Led Zeppelin just released their second album, and the horsepower wars are in full swing.Continue reading
It’s no secret that recent years have been grim for many car shows. Meets that used to be considered “the party of the year” in the Mopar community have reported steadily declining attendance, and with every passing year the passion supporting these events seems to fade further away. Maybe this is why I was so overwhelmed with my first experience at The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals!Continue reading
For years theories have spread as to why Chrysler launched their optional “high impact” colors in 1969. Could it have been a booming economy allowing the production of frivolous extras? Society’s newfound desire for individuality? Or maybe it’s just as simple as too much ditch weed and brown acid? Whatever the case, it’s unique features like these that have always made Chrysler stand out and generations of Mopar-nuts are thankful. Continue reading
I can’t idly sit by and ignore the Hell-ephant in the room, let’s talk about Dodge stampeding into the 2018 SEMA show with their all new HEMI crate engine. While GM totes an electric concept car and Ford displays a few non-production pick-up trucks, Chrysler goes full throttle by unleashing the all new HELLEPHANT! Because the 707 horse “HELLCRATE” engine released at last year’s SEMA just wasn’t enough, Dodge is upping the ante again with 1,000 horsepower and 950 lbs of torque delivered to your door. No that’s not a typo, yes you read that right. We’re talking quadruple digits of raw power out of the box. This record shattering new crate motor isn’t just out to hurt feelings, with it’s four hundred and twenty six cubic inches of muscle it pays homage to the famed second generation 426 HEMI that all of us Mopar-nuts lust after.
Halloween is here and screens across america are filled with creature features and slasher flicks. While the rest of the world gets their frights from Freddie Kruger or Michael Myers you Mopar maniacs may want to check out these Chrysler inspired classics instead! Continue reading
The rich smell of a thermoquad carburetor, the pleasant rumble of a 440 big block, the tingling in your spine as you tightly wrap your fist around a pistol grip shifter; you know you’re a Mopar guy at heart but your wallet doesn’t. The days of scoring driver quality Mopar muscle cars seem to be long gone (where are all these $500 Super Bees and Road Runners that the older generations speak of?). While you sit around reminiscing about the glory days and drooling over six figure ‘Cudas and Chargers other gearheads are snatching up this generation’s low buck Mopars. Continue reading
