Illustration for article titled I’m Dumb and Am Tempted By Dumb Things

That’s an ‘84 Dodge Shelby Charger, which isn’t the year you want because it’s the last non-turbo year. But you know what’s under that cover on the left?


The exact same god damn thing, but red. Also a non-turbo ‘84. But it’s the pair of them for $400, and that interests me.

I’m thinking blue gets a turbo swap, maybe all the way to an SRT4 motor, and red gets a built turbo 2.2, those Hoosiers in my basement, and the full racecar gutting. I say that because the interiors on all of these are blue and gray and that looks stupid with red, but great with blue and silver.


Anyway, that’s the dumb idea I’m lusting after today.
