Ram has introduced a model for the 2013 model year aimed squarely at first-time buyers and owners who are seeking a vehicle with performance and style that they can customize and make their own – the Ram 1500 Express. For those interested in a pickup with an emphasis on high-performance character, the Express is well worth a look. We recently swung by the Marty Cancila RAM dealership to check it out in person, and found that the written description of this vehicle just does not do it justice – it’s got a certain style the typical pickup just couldn’t pull off. It features a racy, monochromatic paint scheme. A body-colored grille with black honeycomb inserts, body-colored front fascia and body-colored rear bumper with chrome-tipped dual exhausts emphasize its sport-truck credentials.

I stumbled upon this awesome 1969 Dodge Charger 500 while browsing the web, and decided to share it with you. I admit this is a perfect muscle car, incredible vehicle! This is a great example for all Mopar collectors, so – search no further!
This is a chance to own a piece of Mopar history. As history dictates, Dodge was to build 500 of these examples to allow them to enter Nascar Racing. Although the true number of these cars built is debatable, this one was chosen by no other than Joey Arrington of Arrington engines of Martinsville, VA.
Here are the words of the owner: “The guru of Mopar, Galen Govier, saw my car at a car show in Cornwall, Ontario, and remembered it as Joey’s car. He registered her in the Chrysler registry for me. Joey’s father, Buddy Arrington, raced these cars in the 60s and 70s, and he was on hand to sign the car and do a photo opt. Read more!
I 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!

We’re all familiar with the term ‘resto-mod’ and how it gets thrown around to describe cars which
1) haven’t been restored that well and
2) haven’t been modded that much at all.
But, simply put, the true theme of the ‘resto-mod’ movement is: THE BEST OF EVERYTHING. And if there was ever a textbook example of a true-to-form ‘resto-mod’, this 1971 Dodge Challenger has to be it. Showcasing the hard work of a very skilled builder who understands how to enhance the best attributes of a slick, frame-off restoration, this badass Mopar features a slew of handpicked, top-shelf parts which create a classic that can be shown AND driven with the best muscle cars on the road.
Take one glance at this Challengers wet-look Plum Crazy Purple exterior and it’s obvious that the cars top-notch restoration was both thorough and expensive. Take two or three minutes to look down the sides of this rock solid Dodge and you’ll find exact angles and flawless reflections which set it apart from all but it’s most extensively restored peers. Take an hour to visually examination this highly detailed Mopar and you’ll notice that the accent line which runs from nose to tail is expertly paralleled and caps straight quarters that have been painstakingly finished to provide a near flawless canvas for the cars slick, high quality basecoat/clearcoat paint.
