    I saw the drags on Woodward Avenue. Strangely, the Dodge Dart just forgot to drive in the finals for the big-tire class, or semi-finals, or whatever.. Bad representation, Dodge. He sat at the finish line, the big old Chevy left early, but they dq'd the Dodge Dart. It was weird.

    Dodge, for future reference, when you sponsor an event, make darn sure your brand is REALLY well-represented, not by amateurs who choke and forget where the gas pedal is at the starting line.

    Watch this soap opera unfold from this point: 8:38:18

    ACTUAL LINK THAT THAT TIME IS THIS:
    https:SLASHSLASHyoutu.beSLASHXVBsYlyu4h8ERASE THIS?t=31118

    Again, for the exact time of this race: just paste the following two lines in your browser but eliminate the paragraph break between the : and the//
    https:
    //youtu.be/XVBsYlyu4h8?t=31118

    The Youtube link would not just display the precise time I wanted this clip to start, strangely.

    You know what I wonder about the Mopar brand? The geriatrics that they have representing it that were cool in the 1990's or 1890's or whatever.

    What I see is a company that seems almost completely out of touch with any potential future customers, who is about to cut off their nose to spite their faces by eliminating the Hemi instead of going all WWII airplane on it and turning it at 3000 RPM max, which still leaves plenty of torque, gives great gas mileage, and lasts forever.

    A 2 liter Fartmobile Gretapleaser engine turning 2000 rpm has 2.5 times as much friction and pumping losses than a 6 liter engine turning 600 RPM.

    Keep selling cars that people will want to modify, unlike the stupid V6. Let's see, what's the aftermarket for the V6? Two guys? Three?

    Headers? Nope.
    Intakes? Nope.
    Cams? Nope.
    Rods? Nope.
    Pistons? Nope
    Valve springs? Nope.

    And Goofberg or whatever his name is the former wrestler who was formerly famous, who is he designed to appeal to? Guys on Social Security?

    Dodge has the atmosphere around it that the Hot Rod Wallet Tour does: rich old farts who sold their kids' futures so they could drive around in fancy cars.

    They need to get back in touch with people under the age of 70.

    One way to do it, is by launching a new Dodge Colt. Rear wheel drive, four-banger DOHC that can be modified to HELL, AND THAT ONLY HAS TWO DOORS.

    Forget the youth market if you only want to focus on your Hellcats and other completely unaffordable rides, like the Dodge Electrovibrator or Hybrid Hippie Honker or whatever you are going to try to push.

    Bring the two-door compact sporty Dodge car again, but this time, make the suspension designed by Germans instead of retarded monkeys. Look how long the Challenger/300 platform has gone on with its stellar base design.

    And, unlike everyone else, make it nice, cheap, easy-to-manufacture REAR WHEEL DRIVE.

    Offer AWD versions that drive the rear wheels AT ALL TIMES, and can drive the fronts via viscous coupling. Make the engine compartment have the room for headers, turbos, blowers, aftercoolers, etc.

    Make your cars affordable and fun as the SRT/4 that is about 18 years old.

    If Dodge keeps it up, they are going to lose their entire, wait, they are going to CONTINUE losing their future buyers.

    When it comes to cars, young guys aren't looking to date the 40-year-old supermodel who requires 10,000 dollars a month. They want a cute, young, playful girl who doesn't cost much and likes them right now, and is OBTAINABLE.

    Goofberg or whoever has this air about him that he is an old fart that is trying to stay relevant by doing steroids and hanging around fast cars.

    But, news flash: young guys are not IMPRESSED by steroid-bloated has-beens driving unaffordable cars. They consider them to be doddering old fools trying to be young again.

    Also, announcer chicks at the Roadkill thing that are kinda fat and look like they have had a couple kids already are going way over the heads of the youth crowd. Equal opportunity and affirmative action and whater blah blah. Look at the Tik Tok girls and "gamer girls" that are appealing to young guys by the MILLIONS.

    None of them look like they have been within nine months of ever being a mother. Get back in touch. If you are trying to sell a product, forget the "rules" forced on society by angry femibolsheviks.

    Pretty young girls sell product, IDIOTS. If you don't think so, ask any man who flies internationally which airline he prefers to fly East from the USA. He will NOT pick the American airlines, staffed by bitter feminists clinging to their jobs by the power of the union contract. He will choose the Asian airlines: Cathay (OMG pretty, pretty girls) Korean Air, Air China, EVA, etc. He will not choose the one from uh, Islamabad or wherever with the women wearing the dumb "not quite a burqa" thing on their faces.

    Pretty young women sell products. Even to other women. On Mythbusters they did a test and when the redhead was at her most attractive (aka biggest boobs) she got tipped FAR higher in a retail setting by men AND women than she did when her boobs were smaller/minimized.

    Wake up, Dodge, and smell the coffee.

    Get back in touch.

    And don't lose races to a 66-year-old Chevrolet at an event you sponsor

    Also, do not let hybrid idiot cars like the 1700hp turbo LS Chevrolet Volvo someone brought from a junkyard in Sweden even in the event. That is a six-second race car that generates ZERO positive results for Mopar.

    Simple: Chevy car, Chevy motor. Ford car, Ford motor.

    Also, GO WITH A PRO TREE, not some idiot on the starting line who gave the win to Chevy when the Mopar in the finals won the race by the rules that YOU set that the Volvo guy in the other finals won by doing THE EXACT SAME THING.

    The problem with your starter dude is he gave a win to one person who was early to start and he gave the the win to the person who did not leave the line in another race. A pro tree with lights is more predictable and impartial.

    I am seriously thinking of just switching to Maserati. They have a nice, V8-powered GT with an engine by Ferrari that does 200mph.

    I am getting weary of watching Mopar commit doctor-assisted suicide.

    Product reveal as of monday 15 August.


    I marvel that DC finally offers LONG TUBE HEADERS and 3.0L IHI superchargers.

    And the sane ones among you will love the paint color options they have come up with for this coming year.

    The one car revealed was something that if they produced it in numbers would be the most collectible car Mopar has made in decades, rivaling the BMW Art Cars.

    And, today's reveal is the Hornet in various versions. The one that perked my ears was the GLH. It shows up around 35:00 into the video.

    LOL Kuniskis saying "It doesn't just stand for Goes Like Hell."
    I finally know after all these years what the GLH stands for!
    What is ironic is that there has rarely been a more sterile generation in history, yet, we are being swamped with SUV's.
    What happened to the 2-door compacts that everyone else is making money on?

    You can't reach future buyers with cars that cost more than a house.

    A 2-door sporty 4-banger with a turbo option could be an investment in future buyers if Dodge wasn't so allergic to success and reason.

    Also, what says "Loyalty to Mopar" more than "I focus primarily on Mustangs until Dodge gives me a Hellcat?" (or whatever they did to snag the latest irrelevant geriatric as their spokeswhore.)

    It's like it's the 1960's and Dodge is trying to appeal to the Da Yoof Market by wearing a gray 3-piece suit, short hair, and a "Support War in Vietnam" buttons on their lapels.

    If you were trying to destroy Dodge, would YOU do anything differently than what they have been doing?

    Have you ever known or heard about someone's beloved relative they just couldn't convince to get away from their drug-addled loser friends?

    Also, want to make Top Fuel classes relevant again?

    Change them to the new Gen III Hemi, and challenge Ford and Chevy to bring their own motors, DOHC or whatever, and run them on fuel. No blowers, just fuel.
