Sunday Commentary: Easter Sunday

Hopefully your Easter Sunday was full of family, friends, and good food. I realize not everyone celebrates Easter that reads IG and for those of you that this was just another Sunday hopefully it was warm and sunny and full of driving. No matter what Sunday was for you Spring is in full effect in a lot of the country and if you were out here in central Illinois this weekend you surely noticed that the hot rods, classics, and muscle cars were out in full force too. I am not aware of too many official get togethers this weekend but there was a lot of action out on the roads. It was great to see. Of course here in farm country the farmers were out in force too so remember to keep your eyes open for them and slow down if you see them.
2015 Dodge Challenger R/T
This week was largely about Mopar here at IG. With the new Challenger and Charger getting launched that took up a lot of our week. Hopefully you got a chance to watch the reveal live on Thursday right here, but if not we had plenty of pics of the new Challenger, and we’ll do something on the Charger soon. The week wasn’t all about the Challenger and Charger though. Let’s take a look at what else we did.

World Record Dodge Challenger
As I said above this week was a lot about Mopar. I promise that later next week I’ll get something together for you Ford and Chevy guys. In the mean time you have to suffer through a little bit more of the good stuff Mopar. The world record was set for a new Dodge Challenger last weekend. 7 seconds in the quartermile is seriously fast. Seriously fast. It definitely caught my attention. We have some video at the link above.

Barrett-Jackson Recap
I think everyone reading this probably enjoys Barrett-Jackson. I sure do. Yes I know it inflates the price of collector cars but it is a great way to spend an evening watching the cars go over the auction block. I sure hope someday to go in person as I’ve heard it is car guy heaven. In the mean time we will have to settle for a recap.

Dodge Challenger/Charger reveal
If you missed the big reveal of the new Challenger or Charger we’ve got you covered right here with full video of the reveal.

Plymouth Road Runner
The Plymouth Road Runner is as cool as it gets. So cool that the American Muscle Car TV series did a show on it several years back. Well now thanks to youtube you can see the full episode any time you want.

2015 Dodge Challenger
The big news of the week was of course the 2015 Dodge Challenger reveal. If you loved the current Challenger I bet you’ll love this one too. If you hated it, well you’ll hate this one too. I think everyone knows where I stand on the subject of the new Challenger. If you missed the reveal there are tons of photos at the lin above or you can check out the video a couple paragraphs above. I will take mine in sublime please 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T

That’s going to wrap up this week.
