Switching insurance companies so I had to take some pictures of the Dodge plus we changed the oil. I think this car gets better every time I drive it. I gave it to my son last yr. For the new guys this has a stroked 340 to a 406, 11:1 compression ratio, built  overdive trans ( will handle 750hp), 2800 stall, dana 60 3:55 custom built by DTS it will hande 1100hp. Complete rebuilt suspension w/frt disc breaks...it hooks & goes Cool

Ah... thanks for posting this. Scott deserves this and KUDO's  Smiley for being a great Dad!

I actually saw this in person and got to drive it so this has special meaning to me.

How much is this worth if I may ask?

Not really sure how much it's worth, but the engine, trans & rear are worth close to 20K. This car shakes the neighbor hood. It only gets between 5-7 mpg so it doesn't get driven to much. I might take it to the track this summer just to see what it can do ..I'm thinking in the high 11's or low 12's & I do have a set of drag slicks.

I'm thinking more like 10's Alan. Wonder what the Blue Monster can do? Why not race 'em both that day?

I am afraid to get on the 68 for a 1/4 mile, I think something would break & I'm not going through that again. The car hooks to good now & that's when things break.  The Dodge is another story Smiley

Yeah, the Blue Monster is a bit temperamental as the 3 times I met you back there, the Blue Monster broke down twice. One was a big one. Shocked

I used to have all kinds of electrical problems until I rewired the whole car. Been no problems since then. Did have a bad disconnect switch that kept the car from starting when I got together with Binnie in NH a few yrs ago, but we figured that out pretty quick. No more disconnect switch...I just keep my Glock 19-9 handy.

Been a while since I posted here but I took the Dodge out yesterday & it's hard to wipe the smile off your face. Funny no one seems to want to challenge me at a light like in the vettes Roll Eyes. The engine is just getting to 2K miles & responding much better.  Got a new client last week a large contractor & he came over & loved the Dodge....he's a big mopar guy.
