2008 Dodge Challenger Mr. Norms Convertible

2008 Dodge Challenger Mr. Norms Convertible - Muscle Cars BlogI think that RK Motors Charlotte is a great muscle cars expert and here come the details:

The first thing you notice about this car is what you didn’t notice first: it’s a convertible. Dodge hasn’t built any Challenger convertibles [yet] but this one looks so right that it takes a second glace for most people to understand that this is not OEM, but an exceptional custom piece. The second thing you notice is that it’s not just a Challenger that has gone topless, but rather an extremely special vehicle: Mr. Norm (Krause) had this car built for himself, and it is not only a convertible, but it is also the first Mr. Norm’s Super Challenger, the first Kenne-Bell supercharged Super Challenger, and was custom built (as a hardtop) for the 2008 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Forty years ago, this would be like getting the first Hemi ‘Cuda convertible ever built, and if you’re a fan of Mr. Norm, perhaps it’s even sweeter than that.

Oh, and did I mention that it makes 600 horsepower? Click on Read more and check out the FANTASTIC gallery!

Sneak Peek New 2013 ‘Mustang Inner TV’ Ad via Google Hangout, YouTube and Facebook - Muscle Cars BlogIn advance of being shown nationally during the Daytona 500 on Feb. 26, Ford will offer a sneak peek of the “Mustang Inner TV” ad tomorrow at 11 a.m. EST via a Google Hangout and later via YouTube and on the Mustang Facebook page.

Ford’s Google Hangout can be watched at the company’s Google Plus page: http://gplus.to/fordmotorcompany.

Conventional advertising is usually about the product and not the customer. Companies seek opportunities to sell their item, touting its benefits, performance and how it will improve lives.

“We know that Mustang owners are incredibly passionate about their car,” said Matt VanDyke, director of U.S. Marketing Communications. “Rather than just show features and benefits, our new ad demonstrates how people see the product as an extension of who they are. We believe that everyone has an inner Mustang just waiting to be unleashed.” Read more!

Information on McLaren and the brand

Feb

There is nothing that expresses the pure McLaren brand than the new McLaren sports car, the MP4-12C.  Although this is a supercar, it is not an inaccessible one and although its £168,500 might seem expensive to many of us, it is the fastest road car that money can buy.

The car is stunningly beautiful. Its 600 bhp of raw power comes from a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 and it will take you to 124 mph from rest in just ten seconds. Much of it is constructed from carbon fibre and it has a revolutionary suspension system that uses hydraulically inter-connected dampers.

The car is unmistakably McLaren. It shape is designed to provide the ultimate in aerodynamic performance and by employing the same technology and wind tunnel that is used to design formula One race cars everything has been designed to provide optimum downforce as well a minimising drag.

Chevrolet Camaro wrapped in chrome vinyl

Chevrolet Camaro wrapped in chrome vinyl - Muscle Cars BlogWe’ve seen our fair share of chromed cars – everything from an Audi R8 V10 to a Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster – but here’s something American – a real muscle car.

Talk about a flashy Camaro, literally! Vinyl wraps have been all the rage in the aftermarket, allowing car owners to change up their car’s color completely and unlimited times, but also 100% reversible. The Czech guys from Tintek.cz – specialist in wrapping sports cars – are back with a new chrome vinyl. They outfitted the vinyl to a Chevrolet Camaro SS and an Audi TT.

Tintek says the Camaro is the first chrome application of this kind in the Czech Republic, as the effect is not obtained by painting the car but by applying a special 3-D foil over the original paintwork. They also offer the chrome effect in gold, black, green, blue, orange, red and violet. This is what I call an original tuning project! Check out the video on Read more!

The mobile phone has made our lives so much easier with its ability to keep us in touch with various facets of our lives. Communications have improved with its widespread use. However, when combined with driving, the mobile phone doesn’t receive such positive accolades. Actually, since the short message service (SMS), also known as texting, was introduced, mobile phones have made driving even more hazardous.

Since the beginning of the ability to send short text messages, many people have also realized the dangers of doing this while driving. However, given the convenience as well as the short nature of these messages, people still continue to do this dangerous driving habit. As a result, there is a growing incidence of car accidents that occur due to texting while driving.
