                        I honestly didn’t know they did that back in the day. That’s crazy. I’ve always wondered why they made the EXACT SAME CAR with a different name🧐🧐😂😂

                            When he said James had a heart attack I burst out laughing bc I thought he was being sarcastic and then I was like wait...oh no. Oh no Im a dick.

                                                        Is this why Bruce left funhaus? Because Roosterteeth is planning on making a 20th channel for car reviews and history called "cookie media" and they gave Bruce the option of leaving or being "removed by any means necessary" and Bruce values his life?

                                                        Is that why Bruce? Answer me damn you. 😭

That is one of the reasons why I'm going to install an aggressive cam in my Challengers 6.1, and will really rock n roll then. Even though l do not have a shaker hood, I still like the rocking of a cam and adds some power to. I once owned a 74 that I purchased from the original owners and was in great shape, but it was just a 318 car

Also the 440 in ‘70 could be had with both 4barrel and 6pak. ‘71 had same engine options as ‘70. In ‘72 all big blocks were dropped. Crazy that there so many engine options back then
