Mopar Monday at the Chickenburger

Last night was the Mopar Maritime Car Club’s first Mopar Monday held at The Chickenburger in Bedford, NS. For an inaugural meet, there was a nice cross-section of Mopar’s represented, although one colour appeared to dominate (hint, it wasn’t blue, the fastest colour).

My 2010 Charger SRT8.

This ex-V6 ex-Police car has an old-school bored & stroked 360 with an Edelbrock intake, Holley 4-barrel and MSD ignition. It’s got a 3-speed with overdrive transmission from a older model Dodge pickup. It previously had a supercharger - you can still see the hole hacked in the hood, covered now with a bolt-on hood scoop - and is still running the supercharger setup for the engine, so the owner said it’s slowly killing itself, but he doesn’t care; it was built to beat on. In it’s current form it pulled 499.5hp at the rear wheels - he was really upset about the fact that it couldn’t make it to 500. With the supercharger it had been just under 700hp at the wheels.

Surprisingly, or maybe not, this was the nicest-sounding car there, even over the various 440’s and modern Hemis with aftermarket exhausts (cough - the two SRT8’s - cough).

Home-made console - being an e-police car, it originally had a column shifter.

A 1971 440-6 ‘Cuda. Most people call the triple two-barrel carb setup a “6-Pack”. Dodge marketed the 3x2 barrel option as a 6-Pack, while Plymouth’s term for it was “6-Barrel”.

Also at the same time was a British car meet, and this Morgan 3 Wheeler showed up - the first one I’ve seen in person.
