    Yep,
    did that,
    but then the Tour he takes you back into the Garages the public doesn't get to see

    And he fired up a bunch of the motors on engine stands,

    and one of the Nitro Rails :)

    Loven it!
    I've been watching "Grave Yard Carz" on the Motor Trend cable channel and recently they mentioned that the 440 C.I. engine of the 60s & 70s was producing 375 HP from factory. My 2015 R/T Plus with the 5.7L (345 C.I.) came from factory with 372 HP, stock with 95 less C.I. If you are a Mopar person you need to watch this show, they do nothing but restore grave yard Mopars only. Unfortunately they never tell at what expense. Waiting list is months or years in some cases to finish restoration. Very precise work.
