Early Magnum

If you were to ask most people to describe a Dodge Magnum, they’d tell you that it was a performance oriented station wagon that was built from 2005-2008. However for those of us in the automotive know, we’d be thinking of the two-door, t-topped roof’d versions that were produced from 1978-1979. They were more of an executive cruiser that came nicely appointed, but that weren’t overly quick. Regardless, here is one of Dodge’s early ads for the Magnum so make sure to check it out and enjoy!

DodgeMagnumSRT8_1

… my 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8. This is a car I purchased back in 2009 with a mere 21,000 miles on the clock and then subsequently sold in August of 2012. To this day it was the best vehicle I’ve ever owned and never once did it give me a hint of trouble. As a long distance road trip machine it was outstanding. The big 425 hp 6.1L HEMI meant sustained 90 mph cruising speeds were effortless and thanks to some of the best seats in the business, fatigue was never an issue. This is one of those rare cars that Chrysler got right. It wasn’t overly done, but included enough luxury and style to make one feel special with enough room to haul just about anything they wished. Sadly, I sold the Maggie last year as it no longer met my needs. It sold in just 11 hours and went to a wonderful couple from Oregon. In it’s place sits a new Mustang GT, a car that was purchased to simply be a track rat and nothing more. It doesn’t have the personality, style or overall appeal of the Magnum SRT8, but it does its job fairly well. Maybe one day I’ll come upon another lightly used Maggie, but until then, I wish I had more time enjoying one of best modern day sport wagons to ever grace the tarmac.

eBay Deal of the Week: Custom 1971 Dodge Challenger

Posted in Chrysler, Dodge, Domestic Rides, eBay Motors, General, Promoted, Rides by MrAngry | July 22nd, 2013 | 1 Response |

1971Challenger_1

The 1971 Dodge Challenger is one of those rare cars that came almost perfect from the factory. All the proportions were correct, so therefore when it comes to customizing, there is fine line between doing it right and doing it wrong. What you are viewing here is a 1971 Challenger with a late model Challenger front and rear end grafted onto it. This is not a pro-touring car per say, but more of a resto-mod that will appeal to a few select buyers. Powered by a 340 cubic inch small block, grunt should not be a problem. However there is no mention of any suspension upgrades. You can go directly to the eBay link below, or click through for more pics.

Ruffles Commercial: B-Movie Magic

Ruffles Cup

Big companies spend millions of dollars every year with ad agencies in order to convince the public that their product is better than the competitors. Sometimes the agencies knock it out of the park, and other times they fall flat. What never ceases to amaze me though is the imagination that some of the ad executives show when it comes to game time. The following is a ad for Ruffles new Tangy Honey Mustard potato chips. And while we’re posting it because of the awesome rides featured (1968 Charger, 1976 Volare, 1968 Barracuda) I’m not quite sure it hits the mark.

SRT Body And Soul

If you were to ask the adolescents of today which they’d rather have, a new car or a smartphone, you may be surprised at the answer you’d get. As a kid, I distinctly remember that the only thing I wanted was my drivers license. SRT’s new advertising campaign gives us all, young and old, a little shot in the arm and reminds us that, even though technology is a wonderful thing, it’s nothing if it doesn’t stir the body and soul.

Dom’s New Dodge

DomsCharger

It’s as much a part of the Fast and Furious franchise as any of the main characters, and has been in all but 2 of the 6 installments. It’s Dom’s 1970 Dodge Charger, and although it gets destroyed during each go-round, movie magic has proven that this old Dodge has more lives then any cat you’ve ever come to know and love. For the Fast and Furious 6, the Charger is once again, back. However this time it’s been reincarnated as a highly modified 1969 Dodge Daytona, the pinnacle of the Chargers evolution. Logic dictates that using a Daytona was the next step for the Charger, however now my curiosity is really peaked as I’m wondering what’s going to show up in F&F 7…

Dodge Daytona

It’s no secret that Dodge has had a long standing relationship with the Fast and the Furious movie franchise. From Dom’s 1970 Charger to the new Challengers and other Dodge products, Chrysler is banking on the fact that the F&F will continue to help bolster brand recognition with automotive enthusiasts throughout the world. The new film, Fast & Furious 6 is no exception and continues this tradition by incorporating some new Alfa Romeos into the action. Ralph Gilles, SRT CEO sits down for the cameras to tell us about the ins-and-outs of this relationship.

2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel vs 2013 Volkswagen Touareg

Posted in Chrysler, Domestic Rides, Educational, European Rides, General, Jeep, Rides, Videos, Volkswagen by MrAngry | April 18th, 2013 | 1 Response |

Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

10 years ago if you were to tell someone that they needed to pay over $50K for a Jeep Grand Cherokee, they’d probably laugh at you. This however isn’t 10 years ago, it’s 2013 and this new Jeep Cherokee EcoDiesel is hands-down worth every penny. Not long ago I had the opportunity to test drive the new Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel in Austin, TX and truth be told, it’s a wonderful vehicle. The 2013 Volkswagen Touareg is also a decent SUV. Not wonderful mind you, but decent. The interior feels bland and stagnant compared to the Grand Cherokee, but on the road it’s a little more compliant in my opinion. Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman recently got these two trucks together for a little off-road showdown and I’m happy to say that his conclusions about both vehicles were very similar to my own.

2013 Chrysler 300 SRT8: Ridelust Review

Posted in Car Reviews, Chrysler, Domestic, Domestic Review, Domestic Rides, Featured, General, Rides by MrAngry | April 4th, 2013 | 13 Responses |

2013 Chrysler 300 SRT8

PRO’s: Great styling, gobs of torque, impressive performance, great price.

CON’s: Narrow 245-series tires, aging 5-speed transmission, may be a little too aggressive for some.

FINAL THOUGHT: A modern muscle-sedan that provides tire shredding performance in a package that’s all-day comfy and wonderfully styled.

Hurdling down Interstate 680 in Northern, CA in the new 2013 Chrysler 300 SRT8 is an exercise in restraint. On the one hand you’ve got this big American luxo-sled that’s reminiscent of the big Chrysler’s of yesteryear. And on the other you’ve got a player that has the ability to put some serious hurt on the best that Europe and Asia has to offer, something that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
