In an unofficial survey done by random teenagers, people were asked what they would choose if they had only one wish! As you all assume, many said billion dollars. However, many answered they would like to find a field full of abandoned muscle cars
When you think, about it, that`s the best option. You can get your money that way, but you will still have a full yard of old muscle!
Are you one of those car lovers that have tough times finding parts for their retro beauty? And that old timer is a Dodge Charger? Or a Challenger? And you have been to every possible junkyard of old vehicles? What if we told you that you might be near to a lot of abandoned muscle cars?
Well, today is your lucky day, even the luckiest if you live near Alabama, as we found out “the Heaven” where all these abandoned muscle cars vehicles end up.
More precisely, this huge place is located in Anderson and it is a home of over 700 Dodges, mostly Chargers, waiting for you to make them resurrect. The bird view photo proves the quantity of the cars, so if you visit this place take a map with you, just in case you don`t get lost.
If you are still wondering yourself if you can find the part that you need the most, we assure you that there is no need for that, because the odds are playing on your side as the choice is enormous.
So, if you are really interested then you should contact www.StephensPerformance.com -- the site that declares itself as the owner of this salvage yard
For now, we can provide you with that information, plus these close up photos that capture the “health” of the cars.

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the world's fastest quarter mile production car. But how does it do that? How does it hit 1.8 g's of acceleration when powered by only the rear wheels? Rear wheel drive!? Physics tells us that the maximum force a wheel can apply to the ground is equal to the normal force acting on the tire multiplied by the frictional coefficient of the tire (F=u*N). So the car needs to be able to transfer all the weight to the rear tires, and have super stick tires. This video explains how the vehicle does just that!
*IMPORTANT CORRECTION!* The 2.3 second 0-60 time is indeed from 0 mph, not after 1 ft of rollout. This is faster than the Tesla P100D to 30 mph (incorrectly stated in video). My apologies for the confusion. When I asked Dodge PR directly about the car, they told me this: ""The Demon 0-30, 0-60 and 0-100 times do NOT include the 1 ft of roll out." I interpreted this as the times did not include the time for 1 foot of rollout, however from Detroit News: "Roll-outs aren’t a fair way to do zero-60, honestly. A real zero-60 is from a dead stop. But we included (a roll-out) anyway because we knew that question would come up,” said Kuniskis in the Big Apple. “You include roll-outs in our times and it’s 2.1 seconds.”

Not all car fans are necessarily geeking out about how engines preciselly work, but this little brilliant machine will leave you wanting for more. Chevy might be famous for their terrific V8 engines, but this contraption is simply otherworldly cool.
This 1/4 scale V8 sounds absolutely magnificent, and still runs like a charm. With a cylinder head of 200mm which is fully water cooled, it’s no wonder why the overall weight climbs up to 17 kilograms. Other things worth mentioning are 270 degree sport camshafts, oil pan created by using 1mm sheet steel, 3D printed plastic distributer cap, custom diaphragm carburetor and many more.
Pour a sip of 95 octane unleaded fuel, and this V8 will purr all day long! With over 100 individual pieces used in construction, it’s amazing to consider just how much patience was required to finish this build.
Ultimately, these guys are also great fabricators, as it must’ve been difficult to manufacture such a precise machine with all these tiny intricate parts. Either way, we can practically guarantee you’re gonna fall in love with this video. What are your thoughts on this masterpiece?
Supercharged 7.4-liter LT1 V-8 makes 1,046 lb-ft of torque
Although the 840-hp (on 100 octane race fuel) 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has been blowing up the internet, another high-powered American muscle car was also introduced at the 2017 New York auto show. Florida-based Trans Am Worldwide revealed the 1,000-hp Trans Am 455 Super Duty this week. Just 50 examples of the 455 Super Duty will be built.
Where previous Trans Am Worldwide cars were based on the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro, and GM’s Zeta chassis, the new Trans Am 455 Super Duty is the first model built around the sixth-gen Camaro and the lighter Alpha chassis.
Concluding what has to be the longest teaser campaign in the history of the automotive industry, Dodge has unleashed the 2018 Challenger SRT Demon.
And the car doesn't disappoint. In fact, it was banned by the NHRA because it's too fast for the dragstrip.
With performance numbers that are mind boggling, this Dodge halo car is a perhaps the ultimate expression of the American muscle car.
It all starts with the numbers. Peak output is 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque, making it one of the most powerful V-8 cars ever produced, and that's just the beginning.
It has so much power it can lift the front wheels off the ground for 2.92 feet, making it the first production car to do so, and that's been certified by Guinness World Records.
The quarter mile time? A flat out amazing 9.65 seconds at 140 mph, and that was certified by the NHRA. For those keeping score at home, that means the Demon is the fastest production car in a straight line down the quarter mile.
It can pull 1.8 g in acceleration, and run 0-30 mph in 1.0 second while running 0-60 mph in just 2.3 seconds. Yes, you read correctly, and that makes it the fastest production car in the 0-60 mph sprint in the world, regardless of pricing or powertrain. Take that, Tesla.
The craziest part of it all? This beast is a factory-built car with a three-year/36,000-mile vehicle warranty, and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
How did all this happen? Dodge poured a massive amount of engineering into the Demon. This isn't just a Hellcat with a wide-body kit and more boost. No, more than 50 percent of the engine components have been upgraded over those of the Hellcat.
The 2.7-liter supercharger is bigger than the Hellcat's 2.4-liter unit. Of course, boost pressure is up 2.9 psi for a total of 14.5 psi of boost. The redline has been raised from 6,200 rpm to 6,500 rpm, and there's now dual-stage fuel pumps instead of a single-stage pump. That massive air grabber hood? It's part of a larger induction box along with two other air intake sources.
