Lol - Alex knows his cars - and he's right about the last of the EB100s. Bugatti has seen more play then a NY pro....



Hey, the car ain't made to be crashed lol. If you can afford it in the first place, insurance you can afford as well.

Did he let your dad drive it to detail it?
The 'Cuda will be "made" though the "project" has been "dead" for a year now or so, there were pictures of the tuning company designing and building specially made components to convert a Dodge Challenger into a 'Cuda. I don't know anything else about it now since no new updates. Several pieces of the car had been converted already like headlights, grille, hood and side stickers on rear panel.

Yep, I know my cars haha, all thanks to my dad and a certain video game: Gran Turismo for Playstation and a automovite site: www.thecarlounge.net where my father has been a member since 1997.

My dad did drive the GT, I even got to ride in it with my dad and went to maybe 160mph on a country back road, it was amazing .
Here are several photos I took with my T-Mobile Sidekick II phone:

That is me in the drivers seat, I am 6'5, yes I have to duck my head when closing the door but once its closed, I have plenty of headroom left to be comfortable

I would love to have a AMC AMX Coupe

A "modernized" AMC GremlinX hatchback (If Chrysler had the guts to revive several AMC names since they own the rights).

a 1970 Ford Pinto (My dad had the exact same model year (first year) same color as the photo below without the front splitter with painted black grille, blacked out headlight bowls, a some good looking wheels. Apart from popular beliefs, the Pinto was NOT a piece of ****, the mainstream media blew the gas tank thingy out of proportions and hurt Ford because of it. In reality it was a SMALL problem. But I do tell you this, the first few years of the Pinto were GREAT cars, but later model years were piece of crap.

Looks more like a 70's 80's Porsche engine , the only thing giving it away is the belt being exposed as a Beetle engine.

My thoughts were that with Chrysler not finding any venture capital that they would cease production on the Challengers - meaning the company would need to buy one aftermarket from a private owner to make the modifications...

of course, I didn't think about the fact that owners can pay the company to make the mods on their own cars....

Might be time to go looking for a Challenger

I think Chrysler should just drop "Chrysler" and rebrand it entirely as "AMC" (American Motor Company), since they bought AMC in mid 80's. I believe it'll help their image better as a "American" company. Just my opinion.

OR, keep "Chrysler" but use that as a "company" name sorta like General Motors, which itself don't make cars but individual brands. But use "AMC", Dodge and Jeep as "Chryslers" core brands. Hope I make sense.
