Car Thieves Treat Themselves To Dodge Challengers and Charger

⚡️ Read the full article on Motorious

Two Dodge Challengers and a Dodge Charger were casually lifted from a car dealership in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Crime is getting worse, just stating the obvious, but automotive crime seems to be completely out of control. Lifting cars from dealership lots isn’t new, but the rate it’s happening is insane, especially considering how low the inventory is on the average car dealership lot. A brazen group of criminals snatched three Dodge muscle cars off a dealer lot like it was child’s play. Surveillance footage was released of the incident, and it shows that crooks are getting very bold.

This crime is basically the smash and grab of high-performance Dodges. Officers responded to the scene of the crime around 7:15 am where criminals had smashed through the window of a dealership and grabbed the

The One-of-a-Kind 1954 Dodge Firearrow II Concept Is a Jet Age Flight of Fancy

RM Sotheby’s will bring some significant automotive treasures to Monterey for its 24th annual auction held August 13 through 14 at the Monterey Conference Center. As is the auction house’s tradition, the sale includes dozens of important European sports and competition cars, as well as a unique concept car that wowed spectators when it was unveiled in 1954.

Concept cars were all the rage in the early postwar years, but the trend was actually begun by Buick’s Y-Job from 1938. Although Word War II put a hold on all civilian automotive production, within a decade, the motoring public was chomping at the bit to get behind the wheel of cars that reflected American postwar prosperity and the promise of the Jet Age.

During some late-night perusing of the online classifieds, Nikki Dart abruptly stopped scrolling when she came across a 1970 Dodge Dart Swinger with the original slant-six and 904 automatic transmission intact. By the next afternoon, she was handing over a deposit to hold the vehicle (which still boasts the OG paint and sheetmetal) until the next day when she could get it evaluated. While the evaluation went off without a hitch, the journey home was a little rocky, as the Swinger stalled a handful of times on the 45-minute drive to Montreal, Canada.

This, however, did not deter Nikki, a longtime gearhead who has had an affinity for vehicles since she was little. “It started when my father bought his 1974 Corvette when I

Could these Chevrolet, Dodge, Cadillac cars come back?

The Ford Bronco, Chevrolet Trailblazer, Toyota Supra, and Land Rover Defender.

Those vehicles are among the many long-gone models that automakers have recently revived, breathing new life into nameplates that died decades ago.

With the enormous buzz surrounding the release of the Bronco and, now, the newly revealed and revived Jeep Wagoneer SUV, automakers are expected to continue looking into their past to determine their future.

One big reason: It costs a lot to market a new built-from-scratch model that no one’s heard of. In fact, sometimes it can even be hard for automakers to identify an original name.

“When it comes to real words, English words, it’s tough to find some that haven’t already been reserved or purchased, so to speak, and licensed by a car company,” said Karl Brauer, an analyst with car-buying site iSeeCars. “So if you still own one
