The Ten Best Concepts of the Decade #5: Chrysler Firepower

The Ten Best Concepts of the Decade #5: Chrysler Firepower

The Firepower seemed like the next logical step in the Viper evolutionary chain. The old Dodge two-seater had grown a little long in the tooth by 2005, no longer the raw road monster it had once been.

The Closest Thing You’re Gonna Get to a New ‘Cuda

Norm Kraus has brought up a new little experiment–or, rather, two experiments.  He and a team of customizers have converted the Challenger into a proper ragtop.  Not only that, they’ve also changed the body to create a “new” ‘Cuda.  Both cars feature the old 426 Hemi V-8, now hooked to a Keene Bell supercharger to put out 725 hp.  The […]
