2015 Dodge Charger...Well It Could Be Worse

So I just got a glimpse of the newest Dodge Charger from the NY Auto Show video clips and latest Dodge internet postings. All I have to say is- it could be worse. The front is too round above the headlights in my opinion. They took away the hyper-aggressive "snake eye" look and replaced it with a more common "aero-dynamic" theme. The car definitely has a resemblance to the new Dodge Dart which I like, but I think they should have done something more interesting to the headlights on the Charger. The pre-release renderings by various auto illustrators and fans actually look better than the real car. Maybe Dodge will tweek the front end a bit in 2016? If sales are slow they may have no choice.

Go-Kustom TV Filming

We trekked over to Lo-Cash Kustoms in Bremmerton, Washington yesterday to interview shop owner Joey Herinckx and have our show hostess Kitty Mansfield, tag a few new Episodes (introductions). Had fun and man does Joey have a stash of old Ford Pickups and projects!

Mr. Nasty

Went out to Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, WA. yesterday to take some action pics of Big Tom McDonald's "Mr. Nasty" Henry J Gasser for a magazine article I am writing. The weather was excellent and the track was busy with drivers storming down the 8th mile track. This is the same locale we filmed the drag race scenes of the '55 Chevy racing the '56 T-Bird for Rat Rod Rockers!
