Here is my 2014 Dodge Challenger SRT8 I call "Hot Rod". Yeah I know, it's cliche but it's the only title for this American Muscle! My love for Mopar products has been a real journey but when I saw the Challenger, I knew I wanted to have one of those in my garage. According to Dodge, they only made 1 of these cars in 2014 and I now own that car! I love driving this machine! Mopar or no car!

What a fun weekend of September 18-20th! The Holley Moparty was a great time and I particpated in the Show-n-Shine with my car club of Music City Mopar. I also did a dyno test of my car with Max Power = 428.28 at speed =125.31 and Max Torque = 412....

A little personalization08/27/2020
In my teenage years I had a nickname: The Captain. Although I'm a lot older now the name still brings back memories of my younger self. Thus, CAPTSRT was born for the Hot Rod!
Dodge makes it easy to download the Window sticker and helps me track the original equipment. The "gas guzzler tax" always makes me laugh! Yeah, it drinks gas! I still find it funny, people will ask "how much gas mileage does it get?" I always an...
To tint or not to tint08/27/2020
The SRT8 has a light tint from the factory but what black colored wouldn't look better with tint? I tinted with 35% to stay legal but I think it turned out great!
Dodge 730N Radio Bluetooth / USB issue08/27/2020
I had an issue with my 730N radio where the Bluetooth and the USB would not recognize any devices. I checked with Dodge and the only answer they had was "we've seen this before but the only solution is to replace the radio for $1,200". Shocked, I sai...
Cleaning my ride08/26/2020
The most beautiful color of a car is black. The hardest to keep clean is black! :) I use a MATCC Foam Cannon Gun for my pressure sprayer with Chemical Guys Snow Foam to keep my rides clean. Washing at least once a week. What do you use?
I purchased my 2014 Dodge Challenger SRT8 with 5400 miles in 2018. When I finally found my car also had the dealership in Huntsville Alabama do a few videos to ensure that the car was as expected. It was. :) It is my dream car and you can see the...
