Super Stock Hemi Barracuda Wheelstand
Here is another nice wheelstand, this one from Wendell Howes at the 2007 IHRA North American Nationals at New England Dragway. A little bit sideways in the air as you can see he is steering it in flight.
1968 HEMI Dart Super Stock - Real Car

Challenger RT Hemi 2008
Just NEW video of the hottest retro musclecar in 30 years --- from CHRYSLER. This car is a sure WINNER. Too bad the 1967-69 Camaro and 1964-8 Mustang didn't take a trip through time like Dodge did here(AKA 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T). This car ROCKS and is sure to sell a million. Are you listening FORD and GM???
LMC Super Cuda 200 MPH!

Lady Luck was on our side last week as the Legendary Team made its way to the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea, Michigan.
An all night drive through a snow storm saw us pull into the proving grounds parking lot at the crack of dawn. It was cold and overcast but no sign of rain or snow. It looked like the weather would cooperate, the next hurdle was having MOPAR engineers check out the Cuda. The car passed with flying colors, testament to the sweat and dedication put in by everyone at Legendary over the last year.
Then it was off to the black lake for some real world handling tests in preparation for the 4.75 mile oval and a crack a breaking the 200 mph mark.
Both the Cuda and the Enzo look impressive on the track but once the sun began to come out late that morning the setting was perfect for our high speed run. I think we captured some spectacular footage of a once in a life time event.
After a brief mishap, when the Cuda lost its windshield trim at 190 mph, Peter was ready to go. We could hear the Cuda coming long before we could see her, as the cars went by they sounded like jet fighters. Top speed 208 mph with still some leftwe did it!
