Modern Muscle Car


Gerry Poirier

Make/Model: Dodge Charger Scat Pack

Year: 2019


Special Modifications:

This Dodge Charger puts some muscle into the daily commute. It has a JLT Oil Catch Can, Petty Strut Brace, Carven Exhaust Tips, Rear Diffuser, Diode Dynamics LED smoked side marker lamps. This is my daily driver. At 500hp it is fun and enjoyable. Was looking for a Mustang GT350 at the time but test drove this car and was sold. The car has all the ADAS technology, has a very comfortable ride and aggressive looks. Car was never on my radar till I drove it. I have about 6500 miles on it but still smile every time I get in it!

Ford Thunderbird

Year: 2002

Special Modifications: All stock….all day….right down to the Ford Mo Co air filter and wipers

Found this Thunderbird five or six years ago in Las Vegas while at SEMA. It’s a vehicle my wife has been asking for our entire married life. Bet $20 on the roulette wheel to win the money to transport home. I lost, of course, and drove it home. Almost a 1600-mile drive back to Chicago. Not one problem. I knew I found a great car! Outside some mechanical maintenance items, the only thing I have had to do is replace the back-window section of the convertible top. Some new sneakers are on the list in 2021 but I plan on owning this vehicle for a very long time.
