2019 has nearly passed and the future is upon us. After dozens of stories, car shows and road trips, I’ve collected tens of thousands of photographs this year; I actually have 75,000 pictures on my phone! Probably a third are welding shots, another third are dogs and the remaining are cars. While searching for certain pictures, I narrowed the window down by date. Then I thought, “I should go through, month by month, and pick my favorite car from January to December!” The Mopar® of the Month. Let me tell you, it wasn’t easy culling the herd. There’s a bonus car in August and September, but none for December, so all-in-all here are my 13 favorite Mopar vehicles for 2019!
January: Supercharger concept from Mopar and powered by the Hellephant at NAIAS.
February: Facebook Live for the Drive for Design Launch in front of Shakedown; and afterward, I came very close to doing a burnout in the FCA Design Dome!
March: Scraptona at the Detroit Autorama.
April: My Dodge Challenger SRT® Demon getting a much-needed spring cleaning from Marc Harris at Detroit Detailing.
May: John Tsontos’ Coronet R/T, the story on this car that was built in Queens hasn’t been published yet, but it will be soon and you’ll love this car as much as I do!
June: “Red Ram” Power Wagon at FCA Design Cars and Coffee.
July: Cleveland Power and Performance’s ’68 Charger Hellcat, “Reverence”.
August: NthMoto twin turbo ACR, driven from Minnesota to Detroit for the Dream Cruise.
August (bonus): As seen at Roadkill Nights Powered by Dodge: This 1969 Coronet has an SRT Hellcat shortblock, heads and other parts from a gen 3 HEMI® engine and a giant turbo. “Wanna Bee” is an ongoing project from a dude named Corey with the Fuel Injection Sucks YouTube channel.
September (bonus): 1320 Challenger Concept, spiritual godfather to the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. A Spirit R/T as seen at one of the FCA Design Cars and Coffee. Super rare car, I’ve always wanted one.
October: 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody. I had the chance to drive this F8 green Brass Monkey edition in Sonoma, California.
November: Speedkore’s carbon fiber all-wheel-drive twin turbo SRT Demon powered Widebody Charger at SEMA.
And that’s all from 2019. Absolutely cannot wait to see what 2020 brings!!
