Basics: Bought it as a 318/904 car in 1978. Mid '80s swapped the 318 for a new built 340 six pack with cam, TA headers and sway bars/727 w/shift kit, lowered it and cut the wheel wells to match the 2008-2017 Challenger wells ( ;) ). Wheels/tires bought at the same time are: 265/50R15 and 295/50R15 Radial TAs on 15x8 and 15x10 Cyclone II rims. Seats are from a 240Z. Replaced power steering with a manual box and replaced the AC unit with a standard heater box (somewhat regretting that now..). Also spun it on the freeway in the rain on bald 295 tires and crunched the quarter panel.

Plans are to build an American interceptor. Has not been driven in 20 years and wood rats had taken up residence for most of that time. Have spend a lot of time cleaning the cabin... Still have quite a few wires to repair/replace. Wheels will remain the same, just painted flat black. New tires will replace the 30+ year old tires, although 265/50R15 Radial TAs are no longer made, so I having to go with Hankook tires in that size.

Can't do a real blower because the compression is 10.5:1. I love Cranky Frank from Fury Road so am building a (fake) tunnel ram version of the intake turned up to 11 which will go onto a hole in a new RT hood. Picked up a 16" diameter freebie fiberglass water filter tank that will get cut up to provide the two gas tanks. Pieces will be mounted on top of the trunk along with other gear, because I need to trunk space for Wasteland gear transport. Have a flashy blue light ordered. Have the package tray wire extension shelf built. More as we go along...
