Race Spec’ed Fox Body Goes After Caddy Wagon
For a while now, two different cars seem almost opposite to one another but still take center stage in many automotive discussions. One of these vehicles is a slightly goofy-looking bundle of fun with some modification and many tuning. While the other is a refined performance-based luxury car with a passion for beating Camaros and Corvettes at the drag strip. The Former may not come with much power from the factory, but it can make serious numbers. However, the latter is the pinnacle of American automotive performance, sporting a supercharged V8 engine from the factory. You may be thinking of something like a Hellcat or even a Viper, but that couldn't be farther from it.

Mopar has produced some of the nation's classic cars that captured the eyes and hearts of automotive enthusiasts everywhere. These vehicles have impressed millions, from Super Bees to Satellites, with their dedicated performance engineering and unbeatable style.
