2014 the year of the Challenger?

January 1, 2014

Making a little progress today so thought I would share.  It was a nice day out, great to do some garage cleaning to make some room for a bit of work.  I have most of the engine wiring disconnected, took the battery and tray out.  The radiator is out along with disconnecting the air conditioning.  Inside I removed some after market gauges and a few panels on the dash.  I took the internals out of the glove box also.

It is nice to get something going anyway, this has been a long drawn out process due to some complexities but I’m tired of waiting so time to take matters into my own hands.  I’m sure I’ll be outsourcing plenty but momentum is good to have.

Is there a better way to start a new year?  Had fun last night with several friends watching the ball drop in NYC (on the TV of course) and today it was nice to sleep in a bit then get busy.

Hopefully I can keep making updates on this blog for the car as things progress, I’ve not been very disciplined about keeping a blog but I do enjoy it when I make time.  I’d like to have it as a record for myself anyway, it can be encouraging to go back and remember where things started when in a rough patch.

Happy New Year! – pictures below, doesn’t look like much but half the time was making a place to work!

Sweet Ride

July 30, 2008

Most everyone likely knows this but mother Mopar herself has delivered on the 2009 Dodge Challenger.  This is likely a bigger deal for me than most simply because I love those cars from back in their day.  I really don’t have a point here but I was sitting here thinking about what to write tonight, and I thought maybe it would be helpful if this Blog provided something helpful to anyone that finds it here.  So in the process of doing this thinking, I thought about the Challenger I saw last Saturday, I think it was Saturday anyway, and also thinking about my wife Megan’s text message today stating that she saw one today.  Then I thought I would do an Internet search for Dodge Challenger giveaways and post some links so people can sign up to win a car.

Seriously, how cool is that?  Read my blog and have a chance to win a car.  All I am out is a quick Google and a few seconds of writing.  I should be hired as some sort of marketing guru for creating such pandemonium with little to no effort.  I know of few blogs that are offering giveaways of cars, and of those that might be trying to create such a ‘value’ (for lack of a better word), let them learn from this sweet example.

Here are the links…

So it’s a little disapointing that I only found two links, there were more than two sites but most were all headed to the same place.  That’s still two more chances to win a car than most blogs our there I think.

In case you don’t know what a Dodge Challenger is (and no it’s not the Dukes of Hazzard car) here is a pic of the classic…
